These machines have a "Suction" sensor this has become blocked or gone faulty, or the microprocessor has... yes there is one in here too. Probably going to have to get it looked at?

Shuts off for unknown reason


I sold them for 15 years and I was a service manager for 5 years. This is the classic symptom for a broken diaphragm in the control module. Please contact your local AERUS service facility. They will have the part and will install it for you. This is not a DIY type of fix.

The vacum will run until the hose is inserted and then the motor shuts off. The vacum switch must be hooked up incorrectly. Do you have a schematic?


Before trying to take it apart, check the hose for a blockage. Disconnect the hose at both ends, drop a coin in one end, lift that end of hose allowing coin to drop through. If it doesn't come through, there's a clog. You should be able to clear it by plugging the hose into the exhaust port of the vacuum, holding the other end to the in port, and turning on.
Another possible problem is a dirty afterfilter. Remove the air diffuser/tool holder on the back of the vacuum. If the filter is dirty, it blocks the air flow and the vacuum will shut off due to overheating. Remove it, connect the hose, and turn on the vacuum.
If you don't have a manual, you can download it at the below site. Click on the space under "older models", click on Ambassador III, and download.
Information for removing the air diffuser is on page 9.

1 Answer

Canister vacuum, as soon as hose is on, or air flow is disturbed, the vacuum shuts off. yesterday the vacuum sucked up tree netting, we pulled it out, and now the vacuum has those symptoms.


This is most likely due to a broken or worn out Control Valve Assembly located inside the vacuum.
First, check the bag and afterfilter. If bag is full or pores are clogged, or the afterfilter is dirty, replace them. Try using the vacuum.
Next, try turning the control knob on top of the vacuum counter-clockwise as far as it will go. Turn on vacuum. If it continues running, try vacuuming a room to see if it continues without problems. If not, disconnect hose and turn on. If your vacuum shuts off immediately, then the CVA needs replaced.
If it continues running, place the palm of your hand over the intake. If it turns off, the problem could be the CVA, or simply dirty or clogged tubing connected to the CVA.
If you're using bags that are made to fit, and/or don't say Home Solutions on the top, the interior of the canister, including the moter and cordwinder, is probably covered with dust.

Depending on the model and age of your vacuum, unless "made-to-fit" bags were used, it may still be under warranty. To find out check your owner's manual or go to http://www.aerusvacuums.com/support/manuals/, find your vacuum model, and check near the back of the manual for length of warranty. This of course depends on the purchase date.

Try this.
Disconnect hose. Turn machine on and place hand over intake. If it shuts off immediately, first try turning dial on top of machine so largest dot matches up with arrow. Turn on and place hand over intake again. If it still shuts off immediately, the "control valve assembly" is worn or broken and needs replaced. Don't try this yourself.
Take your complete machine to the nearest authorized Aerus Electrolux shop, or call and ask someone to pick it up. There's no extra fee for this, or delivery upon repair.
The repair/replacement should include a complete cleaning of your vacuum in the labor, but ask the service manager to be sure.
The shop nearest you can be found by typing your zip code into the indicated space on the site listed below.

How do I change the bag on a dirt devil model 103?


On the open end of the bag that slips onto the vacume, there is a cloth "tab" sticking up from the band. Take hold of this tab and lift up while easily pulling back until you see the band about half way off the vacume. Now, you can take hold of the band and pull the bag the rest of the way off. You will notice that there is a "rib" in the middle of the band on the side that faces the vacume. That rib fits into the groove where the band goes on the vacume. When you install the bag put the band on this groove and work the band on around the housing. You can center the "tab" anywhere, just place it where you can get to it easy. The other parts you need are on the internet, I found them all including that rubber plug called the "attachment port" plug. The p/n for the replacement part is 3-201744-601. The original p/n is 3-501744-601 but you'll be better looking for the replacement part number. Good luck!

I have a central vacuum system. When I disconnect the hose from a wall outlet the central canister does not shut down dispite my turning off the vacuum at the handle of the hose. The only way I can get...


What I'm hearing is the canister(Not the Powerhead) portion of the unit is running all the time unless you unplug it. this problem could be caused by a short in one of your low voltage lines running through the house. To determine that just unplug one/both low voltage lines from the canister, and plug it back into the recepticle. If it doesn't start up then you figured out that it is in the house somewhere and not the unit. If it is in the house I would check for water in the valves, or you're just gonna have to chase down the short. If the unit is still running with the low voltage wires disconnected then it is probably the relay on the board, which means you will need a new board unless you're expereinced at soldering and want give it a try replacing just the relay. Which you'll probably need a new board by the time you're done anyhow. LOL

Good Luck

Vacuum shuts off


if you want to fix this problem gently pry up the air flow control knob and look down at the plastic hose connected below the control valve. insert a small screwdriver and push off the hose from the valve. this disconnects the bag full indicator but will let the vacuum operate normally at full vacuum. you will change the bag when suction gets low. this will save you at least $100 repair bill.

Vacume cleaner


Check the hose and see if it has a clog, also the hose at the bottom. The filters may be clogged, make sure they are clean and that air flows thru them, if not then replace them.

Same Shut Off Problem as Hamster71


The part that you call the particle size sensetivity adjuster is bad. There are 2 seals in the assembly, the lower seal is slipping out of place because the plastic lip which keeps it in place is broken. Split housings and replace part. This machine is alot of work to take appart and get back together correctly. Might want to bring to local vac shop. good luck.
