Electrolux 1590 not turning on

I just bought a house with an Electrolux 1590 Central Vac. Never had one before. I tried it with the hose inserted into the wall and the plug on the hose connected to an outlet but it didn't work. I had it inspected by a service tech and he advised that it was the motor. I replaced the motor today and still cannot get the unit to turn on. I've tried all three outlets in the house but still nothing. I've crossed the low voltage wires on the inlet to the vac to see if this would start the motor and it does. Would this rule out the relay board? Does this point to the wiring in the house? Could it be the hose itself? Any recommendations on further checks would be appreciated.

    I thought of that too. Jumpered and the vac didn't satrt so it mnust be in teh wiring between the vac and the connection to teh three vac connections in the house.

    In order to operate in the meantime, I unplugged the unit, installaed a jumper across the connections at the vac and plug in for manula operation when required. I have to make sure the hose in plugged in so the vacuum is not blocked. Not ideal but it works. Suction is terrible compared to an upright. Good for an elctronic broom but etrrible on carpets.

TRY JUMPING THE CENTRAL VAC INLET WIRES AT WALL! IF COMES ON SOMETHING IS MISSING ON HOSE TO WALL CONNECTION. MOST HAVE A METAL RING TO ACTIVATE THE INLET DOOR WHEN HOSE IS CONNECTED.

    I have this vac. Sometimes I have to take the metal ring off and bend it a little so it will make the connection. Make sure when you pull out the hose that you don't wiggle it - just pull straight out. A clean filter and empty canister will improve suction. Make sure all of your pipes are clear and seals are tight on all of the inlets.

SOURCE: how hard is it to replace the motor brushes on a

No it is very simple. You will probably need a pair of pliers, wire cutters and maybe some wire nuts. Remove the nuts that hold the motor down (some have springs that hold them down). Pull out the old motor, there will be three wires that go to it, (2) power and (1) Ground. Most likely you'll have to cut those and splice in the new motors wires with some wire nuts. Then simply reattach the motor the way you removed it and that's it. Good luck!

If the hose fits into the inlets, then there should be no problem.

I have an electrolux central vacuum in my house. My central vac hose has something stuck in it, I think, maybe a sock. I tried to put a long dryer wand down it but the hose is just too long. Does this need...


The best way to clear an obstruction is to blow it out by attaching the wall end to the exhaust of a shop vacuum, or using an air compressor.
You can try holding the wand end of the hose directly to the CV in port and turning the machine on. This provides essentially the same action as the previous method.
If neither of these work, try a combination of the two. Or using a shop vac, hold the wall end to the exhaust of the vacuum and the wand end to the in port of the shop vac. Turn shop vac on and the obstruction should come out.
Borrow a good strong shop vacuum if you need to.
If these methods fail, take it to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store and have the service tech try to clear it. Care must always be taken when trying to clear an obstuction with a long object, especially if it's pointed. I've seen many hoses that have shorted out and even caught fire due to the wiring accidentally being "nicked".

I have two Electrolux Central Vacs. One is not working. Is there a reset button


If this is a CENTRALUX metal bodied 1590 series vac vac there is a reset breaker on the side of the motor housing of the vac. Depending on the age of the vac there is also a filter lockout switch . If you are using a cartridge filter and it is misaligned and drops down the switch will shut the vac off to prevent motor damage. Check those two items. The internal filter must be fully inserted so its twist lock/washer device can rotate holding it up in place. Then take a pair of insulated pliers and short across the low voltage terminals where the wiring system enters the top of the vac . If the vac starts, it is fine. If not your problem lies in the motor , the relay or the filter lockout switch.
If you have a plastic bodied Electrolux, a recent model the test procedure is the same but there is not the same lockout for the filter

Next test the nearest inlet in the house. If it fails to start you have a break in your internal wiring, possibly at a connection or a an inlet which may have a loose wire connection behind the wall. Post back with your results and if you have more questions. If so post the model #

I need a new hose for my Electrolux central vac


Do you need a new powerhead too or only the hose? If you need a new powerhead than I would recommend looking at the Imperium Pro Elite Attachment set. It is an excellent quality powerhead and hose. If you only need a new hose than you will need to contact the Aerus because they will be probably be the only company who can sell you a hose that wil be compatible with your powerhead. Their website is http://www.aerusonline.com/products/

Hello,
I recently bought a house with an older Electrolux Central Vac system. I'm unfamiliar with them, so I'm not sure how to deal with this: I cleaned up some mortar dust with it, and noticed not too long after that when I went into the garage, there was a fog of dust. The hose from the unit is venting into the garage. Is this normal? I have since used it for everyday household cleaning and each time I go back to the garage to a cloud of dust. Is there anything I can do? Thanks


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It sounds to me that the unit you have may have to be vented outside as I am not familiar with this particular unit, or it could very well be that it is missing a filter or the filter you have inside already is shot and is in need of replacement or on some central vacs there are paper filter that go over the cloth type filter. Again, I am not familiar with this older unit but feel free to contact the Electrolux Factory or Manufacturer and give them the model # and the serial # for the unit and they will have a breakdown of if it should be vented and what type of filtration it should be using. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
