Question about Electrolux UltraLux 2000 Bagged Canister Vacuum

Open Question

I have an electrolux ultralux 80th anniversary edition that was over heating and shutting down. I took apart and blew out the dust now when I put it together it does not come on. I may have reconnected the wires wrong and do not have the manual. Where can Im get a manual?

    An Aerus Electrolux dealer will have a user manual but not a repair manual for you. You won't find one... Electrolux models are very logical in their wiring. To wire incorrectly you would have too much slack in one wire and another wire pulled tight. The harness is layed out so as just to fit with minimal wiring. Check that teh bag lockout switch is properly positioned as well. Open the vac again to inspect and look for any wires stretched tight and a nearby wire with too much slack. Post back to advise if you have a full plastic body vac or metal body with plastic handle and which lites if any come on. More often one wire has pulled off during reassembly.

SOURCE: how do i open a electrolux ultralux 2000

Before removing the rubber bumpers and plastic side strips, pry the rear section from the canister by pressing in the hidden tabs. The end section should pop off, revealing the side strips.
Be sure to diagram the wiring connections by color code before disconnecting anything inside.

SOURCE: Power cord will not retract on my Electrolux UltraLux 2000

You will need to take the machine apart to correct this. Open the front of the canister and remove the bag. As you are looking at the front of the unit, there are two vinyl covered strips that run the length of the unit. Pull forward on these strips and then pull out so that the vinyl separates from the plastic underneath. Now grab the plastic strip with a pair of needle nose pliers and pull towards the front of the canister. These can be tough if the machine has never been opened up before, but pull as hard as you need to, to slide the strip out. Once both strips are out, turn the machine over, pull out on the sides of the bottom of the unit, and lift up. The bottom should come off relatively easily, and everything will be exposed. Now, assuming that the cordwinder isn't damaged, you should be able to wind the cord in by hand. Once it gets started it may start to retract automatically. Usually the spring just gets in a bind against the housing when it's over extended, and rolling it in by hand a little will free it up. Good Luck!!

SOURCE: Won't turn on

That's because there is a safety switch underneath the bag when you go to shut the top hatch after putting the new bag in. The cardboard of the bag fits in a little cutout. You see that little silver thing? That's the switch. If you push down on it with a pencil, and the machine kicks on, then that was the problem. If it's not lined up just right, or if it's too thick, the switch won't go down all the way. Make it :-)

SOURCE: Need the manual for Ultralux

You should be able to order a user's manual through an Aerus Electrolux store ( http://www.aerushome.com/storelocator/ .) They will of course try to sell you a new vacuum. To the best of my knowledge, the U160A was built by Aerus for sale exclusively on QVC. The Aerus/Electrolux stores never sold them and they probably don't like them because of that. They will likely say that they don't "stock" parts for the U160A. That's too bad. It was made by Aerus and tell them you want the manual ordered. I don't know what it will cost.

Why does my Electrolux epic 6000 sr shut off with suction?


Hi,

If this Epic 6000 is shutting off when you either just turn it on or while vacuuming with it...it\'s one of several things...1. Change the bag if you\'ve been picking up a lot of "fine" dust such as drywall dust or carpet freshener powder. That\'s ******* them. 2. Being the machine is over 22 yrs. old, the suction control valve inside either needs to be replaced or just cleaned well. This is the usual cause of the vac shutting off especially if you\'ve tried the dial in several different settings. Hope that helps!

What do the symbols and dial settings mean on the electrolux diplomat lx


Symbols..Question mark means "Put a bag in me", checkered light means : "Change me, I'm dirty"....pre-lit power light means: "You have Powaaa" to the unit and the thermostat light means the motor is too hot if it comes on, (most likely from a hose clog) and needs to cool down before the motor will run again. The settings on the control valve basically have to do with the auto shutoff when the bag needs changed. The lower the valve is turned, the more full the bag will get until it shuts off. Hope that helps!

Just picked up the vacuum - any idea the dates of production on a G4 Anniversary Edition?


The 10 digit serial number on ALL G series Kirbys (G3, G4, G5, G6, Ultimate G, Diamond Edition and Sentria) is engraved into the aluminum on the side of the Kirby, right above where the cloth bag attaches to the machine. This serial number contains the EXACT manufacture date of the machine.
The first number in the serial number will be a 1, 2, 3 or 4 and pertains to the quarter of the year in which the machine was manufactured. The second and third number is the year of manufacture.
FOR EXAMPLE.... in the serial number 1071104984, the machine was manufactured in the first quarter of the year 2007.
The G4 models were manufactured from 1993-96.
My G4 80th Anniversary edition doesn't seem to fit this, however. It's 8941106700. I suspect it's got a replacement handle.

Shuts off after a minute or so and comes back on and shuts down in 20 seconds


Sounds like it is over heating do to a dirty filter. Or there is something blocking the air flow in the vacuum.

Stopped working, lights work, shows full light when not full.


Remove the bag and put in a fresh bag. Then rotate the dial on top of the vac to the middle position. When cleaning fine dust the vac will shut off before the bag is full as it is sensing a clogged bag and cannot sense proper air flow through the bag. If this persists the sensor under teh top dial may be damaged and need to be replaced

Just powered itself off


It will shut off if your bag is full. If you are cleaning up fine dust, it will give a false bag full indication. Take the bag out and carefully, shake it down to get the dust out of the filter layers inside. This will let more air flow through the sensor.
