SOURCE: dust blowing out of my vaccuum cleaner

Usually when dust is blowing out it is caused by a clog, either the hose, or the dirt inlet down by the brush roll is clogged. Check them and clean them out and you should be ok.

Greetings from GoVacuum.com,

Yes, you certainly can take off the outer bag of your Oreck and wash it in the washing machine. You DO NOT however want to put the bag through the dryer!!!!! Just hang the bag outside, and let it air dry. It is important to make sure that the bag is 100% completely dry before you use the machine again. If the bag is wet, it will cause dirt to turn to mud in the bag, and probably cause a foul odor when you use the bag.

There are 2 different types of bag systems with Oreck vacuums. The one pictured below is the older style that uses a metal clamp to hold the bag in place. The newer docking system, will be a white plastic clamp that holds the outer bag in place. They both will be removed the same way however. Simply take a screwdriver and pry off the clamp;

Once you have removed this clamp, simply pull the outer bag off. Once it has been washed, and the bag is 100% completely dry, put the outer bag back over the bag housing as far as it will go. When you put the clamp back on, it is imperative that the clamp go behind the plastic ridges, to ensure that it is tightly fastened. If the clamp is not put on correctly, this will cause the inner paper bag to fall off during vacuuming. Make sure that the clamp is in the right position when putting the bag back;

SOURCE: Electrolux model LX vacuum- Problem, ejects empty

The vacuum is doing exactly what it is suppossed to do, on this model, the bag will eject when the suction is reduced due to the pores in the bag becoming clogged by dirt, dust, or fine powder. Try a NEW bag, and **** up less superfine dust such as baby powder or plaster dust that immediately clog the bag. Next, on later model LX's on the bottom of the canister near the bag door is a dial, setting the dial to a higher number will reduce the sensitivity of this automatic bag ejection operation and will allow the vacuum to continue to run until the bag is even more clogged, however, running the vacuum with a fully clogged bag causes the motor to overheat and reduces suction and damages the vacuum. If you have an early model LX, there may have been a "basement and attic" key mounted to the bottom, but often are lost by now and it is used to make such an adjustment. The 1952 model LX was the first with the diaphram automatic bag ejection system and the problem of the bag ejecting too soon was common. An improvement on the model LXI added the control dial with numbers 1 to 6 on it to adjust the sensitivity. I am looking up more info on adjusting a model without the dial because I just picked one up at an estate sale a few days ago and I've heard (some time ago) that the early ones with no dial had a "basement and attic" key that snapped to the bottom of the cleaner to make this adjustment, not sure where it is though and the one I have does not seem to have the key. Will let you know more if I find it! Thanks, I am an Electrolux fan and will use nothing else because I have used so many vacuums but love the convenience of Electrolux design and durability. They have been in my family since my grandparents came to America and are simply the best in my opinion.

SOURCE: How do you open a wertheim 2000P vacuum cleaner?

Hi there,
SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. The ET2000 has a latch that is located at the very end of the machine lid (about 6 cm in front of where hose clips in. If you sit the machine up on its back end you should see the black lever that needs to be pushed in. Now I will also say that it is possible that you have actually been pushing this but the lid still wont open, this is because every now and again the whole latch moves itself out of alignment by about a milimetre. The easy fix for this is a gentle screw drive to assist the relesing of the catch, this needs to be gently pushed in at the same time as squeezing the latch (hand at top of latch screwdriver at base kind of toward the middle of machine). You should be able to get it open like this with only light pressure. Now of course if you need bags or filters please visit us at NelsonVacuums.com.au.
Kind regards Alec

LSAYS I NEED NEW BAG, PUT IN NEW BAG & STILL LIGHT WILL NOT GO OUT & VACUUM WILL NOT TURN ON


Although this generally indicates that the bag is full, it may be caused by other problems. If you have fine dust in your area, the bag may seem like it's not full, but the pores in the bag are clogged so the vacuum will shut off as if the bag is full. This can be partially solved by setting the dial on top to the smallest dot.
The problem could also be caused by a dirty afterfilter. This filter is located beneath the tool caddy on the back of the machine. Access is gained by pressing the tab on the back of the machine and lifting the caddy. If dirty, replace it. If you don't have a replacement, check to see if the vacuum will run without it. It should if there is not other problem causing the vacuum to not run.
Third, try detaching the hose, turn the machine on to see if it runs. If it does, place your hand over the in port. If the vacuum shuts off, the problem is most likely a broken, worn, or clogged Control Valve Assembly. This is the part the dial connects to. This is a problem that should only be repaired by an authorized Aerus Electrolux service tech. If you have been using generic "Made to fit Electrolux" bags, the motor and interior of the machine should be cleaned. This is worth doing as there should be a long "life" ahead for the vacuum. Periodic maintenance should be done.

It could also be caused by loose connections, worn or broken switch/es, broken wires, or bad motor. This can be narrowed down at the shop.

3 lights show up on the top of my vacuum and the center one I don't know what it stands for. Plus, the vacuum seems to be getting too hot.


The one that looks like a cord plug lights up when the vacuum is plugged in and indicates it's getting power.
The one that looks like a thermometer lights up when the vacuum is overheating, and indicates there's probably a clog in the hose or power nozzle behind the brush.
The next one indicates there is no bag in the vacuum. Machine will not run.
The last one indicates the bag is full and needs to be changed. A full bag or clogged pores will result in overheating, however the vacuum automatically turns off when this happens to protect the motor.
It sounds like you need to replace the bag. If you still have problems, it's probably due to an internal part called a control valve assembly. That is an in shop repair, and the vacuum needs to be taken to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store for service. This is most often due to "made to fit" bags being used instead of "genuine" bags. In this case the motor and interior of the machine need to be cleaned as well. Dirt, even fine dust, in the motor will shorten the life of the motor dramatically.

1 ) how do you open the body of the vacum ? 2) How to replace the power cord? Epic 6500 sr


Very Carefully! LOL! Disconnect the hose from the door. Open the door. Remove the bag. Flip the vacuum on its top. You will then need to remove the trim pieces from the sides by sliding them toward the front of the machine(bag opening). Usually they won't want to go easily. The way I used to do it was by wedging a screw driver between the rear cover and the trim piece then gently tapped the side of the screw driver blade toward the front. Once you get enough hanging over you can grab and pull them the rest of the way. The vacuum should separate once the trim has been removed. ****I have to warn you. If you have never done this before it is extremely important to take note of how and where everything goes on an Electrolux. They are complex machines that are assembled in a fairly meticulous way.**** The best way for someone that has not had any training to replace the cord is by replacing the cord winder assembly that comes with a new cord. Otherwise you have to disassemble the cord winder. Not fun.

It has no suction...


Assuming that the vacuum will run, remove the bag and check the discharge to the bag from the machine for debris. Also check the suction to the vacuum blower by removing the beater bar cover plate and beater bar. Inspect the belt. While the bar is off, inspect the suction hose behind the beater bar. This is where I usually find the debris.

Electrolux canister vacuum


Mmm cant find any info on this machine. Did you buy it in CAnada?

However. If you can find where the exhaust filter is, the bit where the air blows out, take off the cover and filter. If there is an exhuast blower it will be here.
I have to say that of late Electrolux have done away with this on most machines

Electrolux ambassdor will not run after pluggen in


Greeting from GoVacuum,

On all Electrolux canister vacuum cleaners, there is a kill switch, that will not allow the machine to turn on without a bag in it. Sometimes when replacing the bag, the bag is placed in a position where the switch is not being activated.

When you open the bag housing, it should look like this;
91cabdc.jpg

You'll notice in the bottom right corner of the bag housing, the kill switch to the vacuum cleaner.
3594972.jpg

Try plugging the vacuum cleaner in, and while you are pressing this kill switch down, turn on the vacuum cleaner. Does the vacuum cleaner turn on/off when you push/release the kill switch? If it does, simply just get a new bag, and make sure that the new bag is covering the kill switch, and close the door of the vacuum cleaner.

If it still doesn't start, let me know and I'll try to help you diagnosis the machine differently. I'd say that 6 out of 10 times, this kill switch is the problem.

I hope this helps you. Please email me with any questions, or if this fix doesn't make your vacuum work. I really enjoy sharing my passion, and expertise in repairing vacuum cleaners.

Clogged vacuum


You can start by taking off the bottom plate or top cover, which ever comes off, that is where the inlet starts going in and hopefully the clog is there. Could be in the hose also. But without the complete model number I can't look it up to see a picture of it.
