Question about Electrolux EL7020A Oxygen 3 Ultra Canister Vacuum Cleaner Bagged Vacuum

1 Answer

My electrolux oxygen vacuum cleaner shut off and will not turn back on. It's less than a year old, but I bought it off Craig's list--they were the orginal owner and they said they bought it in May of 2008. I've only used it a few times and it worked fine except for the last time when it suddenly just shut off. I thought maybe it had come unplugged and I didn't really worry about it because I was finished vacuuming. But, I went to use it tonight and it would not turn on at all--no lights, nothing. Am I totally screwed because I'm not the original owner?

No..Electrolux is really great about warranty service. They will help you even though you are not the original owner. http://smallappliances.electroluxusa.com/files/usa_english/0-999/OxygenOwnersManual.pdf owners manual. Here is a link to the site.
http://smallappliances.electroluxusa.com/node82.asp Also, you might check for an obstruction. The Electrrolux is thermostatically protected. Means that if there is no airflow through the motor, the motor will shut down before overheating can occur. Remove your hose from the cleaner. Drop a quarter down through it, did it come through? If not, you have a clogged hose. If it came through, remove your wand from the power nozzle, look througfh the wand, is it clogged? Now, look at the power nozzle, can you see light through the elbow? Your cleaner will come back on after it has cooled. Try the machine. It should be working now. I hope I could help to Fixya! Please let me know if I helped you. Thanks, Rene (the Vacuum Doctor)

SOURCE: no blockage in my vacuum

The motor's overtemperature thermal shutoff is shutting down the motor. This is due to
undue load on the motor, from:
(a) bearings have lost lubrication and are about to seize up if you run the vacuum much more, or
(b) there is some resistance to turning the motor that has increased over time, possibly a loss
of lubrication around the beater bar, or turning the impeller.
Either way, finding the lubrication point that needs to be addressed will revive your dying vac.

I know nothing about your particular vacuum, but many vacuum cleaners these days have
safety cut out's, which causes the motor to do exactly what you describe. Sadly blockages, faulty switches, over stretched cables, carbon brushes etc could also give similar symptoms, so sounds like a job for the repairer on this occasion. Get a quote first if you can.

First, make sure the dial on top of the machine is set at the half way point. If it is, and there's a lot of fine dust in your area, try turning the dial so the large dot aligns with the arrow.
If it's less than a year old, actually less than 10, the warranty is still in effect (unless generic bags are being used). The best thing to do is call the store or consultant you bought it from and talk to them. They can pick it up, or you can take it to the Aerus Electrolux store for repair. They will also gladly answer any questions you may have about the product. It's a great machine, and investment, and needs proper care to get the most out of it.
Make sure you take your "sales agreement" with you.
There are things that will void the warranty. Using commecially, vacuuming liquids, using generic "made to fit" bags (genuine bags have "Home Solutions" printed on the top), buying on-line (E-Bay). Check your manual for others.
To find an authorized dealer near you, go to http://www.aerushome.com/storelocator/, type in your zip code, and click on "view dealer list".

In your owner manual there should be a number you can call for service. If less then a year old, then it is under warranty.
