Where is the circuit breaker


In your breaker box in the cellar. There is no breaker on these, just a thermo switch in the field winding. Once it opens, it needs a serviceman to replace.

Mini shop vac


There is a hidden thermo fuse in the tape on one of the field windings. If it overheats that fuse will blow and the motor won't run until replaced.

I have an older Electrolux canister vacuum - model #2100 and the temperature sensor shuts down the motor. How to I take apart and clean?


Check to be certain the thermo lite is on and not the bag full indicator. The thermo detector is very reliable, but the bag fill valve often fails. If it is the thermo, check your hose and wand for blockage by dropping a coin through them,before opening the vac itself.Otherwise you may have a bad set of motor bearings causing the motor to overheat due to its age.
The 2100 and all its canister cousins made since 1982 seem to be prone to failure of the dial valve on top cracking internally. The causes the bag full indicator to come on and the vac to shut down.
To open the vac you will need to slide the locking keys and bumpers forward with the bag door open. Do this with a set of pliers. Once done the vac will open from front to back like a **** shell. Be careful to look at the underside hinge are of the bag door before separating and mark and locate the wiring harness . This vac only goes back together one way, perfectly assembled it pops together with ease. If any piece is out of line it`s like a RUBIKS Cube. Take your time . OEM parts are only available through an AERUS Elctrolux dealer or repair shop

I have to reset my Beam Central vac quite often!!!


Check to see if there is a clog in the system. Something is causing stress on your motor causing it to switch off. Or it could be the motor itself failing.

First check for a clog, if you can't find anything wrong, call Beam for assistance

I have an upright, but use it as a canister. It will start sometimes and vac for about half and hour and then it will quit. I can't get it started again even after it cools off.


First check the hose and down by the brush roll for a clog. If there is a clog, it will cause the motor to overheat and the theremo protector will cause the motor to shut off until it has cooled. Now if it won't turn back on, the thermo protector may have gone bad, or the motor itself has gone bad.

Shop Vac just stopped


If you remove the motor, you will see that the wires that go from the switch to the brushes. On one side there is one wire connected directly to the brush. On the other side the wire goes to a plastic plug with a second wire going to the brush. This is probably where the problem is. This is a fusible link and it has most likely melted creating an open in the circuit. I put a piece of solder where the link was and the motor ran BUT the brushed arced like a sparkler. Upon further examination the brushes were crumbling apart. I have been unable to find replacement brushes.
This machine has a five year warranty. I called Shop Vac Customer Service 1-888-822-4644 and they sent me a new motor.
I had a Shop Vac QL50EIC which had exactly the same problem but the warranty was expired so that I had to buy another motor for about $50.
