Question about Lindhaus Activa 30-38 Bagged Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Lindhaus Activa 30 EOS Version

When I turn on my machine, it runs for a few seconds and then turns off. The red light indicator for the electronic overload control turns on. I took the brush out and made sure there were no obstructions. What else can I do?

Check the inlet by the brush roll for a clog, also check your hose for a clog. Usually when there is a clog, it is sensing an overfull bag and will shut down to protect the motor. If there are no clogs, then there could be a problem with the circuit board or motor.

No suction in hose

Remove the machine side of the hose--is there suction at the machine? If so, run a broom handle or similar through the hose to dislodge the clog. If no suction at the machine, you may need to fish out debris with a hooked stiff wire from the port. Remove the bag and examine the port area underneath for similar clogging. Finally, check the brush area underneath the machine bottom plate for more obstruction. Also, check the brush assembly for debris accumulation. Remove the drive belt and check for free turning of the brush. If turns hard, remove the brush, clean the bearings and roller pins, then apply a small quantity of light oil like 3-1 or sewing machine oil. Hope this helps!

Sucton motor doesn't come on

If the debris cleared itself, it may have gotten into the vacuum fan assembly and jammed the motor preventing turning. Also, check the vacuum motor brushes and springs for damage. Hope this helps.

Getting the vacuum to start after replacing the bag

Behind the door and above where the bag is located there should be a piece of plastic, or metal that sticks out, at least in the manual, if the door isn't shut correctly, that piece doesn't push in the switch that is behind there, this is a safety feature built into a lot of vacuums, to keep people from running the vacuum without a bag in it. Most likely your lid just didn't shut completely. Check for that, and get back to me.

It is a vacuum, you would have to consult where you purchased it, they should know what you add to it.

Red light stays on

Most likely the hose or the inlet down by the brush roll has a clog in it. The red light indicates a full bag, but if there is a clog, then it thinks it has a full bag.
