Question about Electrolux Guardian Bagged Canister Vacuum

1 Answer

Electrolux Canister - Stops working after 1-2 minutes.

Our vac works for a short time, then shuts off and makes clicking noise as if trying to restart again. Works after cooling for a while but for another very short time. Your suggestion on fix would be greatly appreciated.
thanks

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure
I would advise that it could be a thermal switch or a regular switch that the thermal switch is over heating and needs replacement – there are small hoses in the door section that could have been pinched or kinked and it stopping the air flow from the vacuum – also check for a clogged or plugged vacuum hose, a full vacuum bag or a dirty vacuum filter. Check the thermal switch or reg switch or the hoses in the door. Or feel free to contact your local vacuum dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or call the factory @ the phone number listed below:

Have a 6500 epic electrolux canister vac shuts off if you restrict the hose new bag not completly


Shake the bag if you've been cleaning up "fine" carpet freshener powder, drywall dust or anything extra fine as it clogs the pours of the bag and the machine stops thinking the bag is full. If this doesn't work, you'll have to have the control valve on top cleaned or replaced to correct the issue. Hope that helps!

Try not to **** up any more water. Don't use until you can dry it out well. Hopefully you live in a warm climate so that will happen sooner than later.

It sounds as if the ball in the tank in shutting down the suction prematurely. Be sure there is a gap of about 3/4 inch between the top of the filter inside the tank, and the lid of the dirty water tank. Without this gap, suction will pull the ball up too soon.

Clog and possible overheated


Hi Jen,

It sounds like your vacuum overheated due to the clog. This is a protection feature most vacuum cleaners have to prevent the vacuums motor from burning out due to a lack of air flow. The safety switch will activate and shut the machine off for a short period of time until the motor has cooled.

You should remove the clog from the vacuum, and make sure that your filters are clean. This model has a hidden filter directly underneath of the bagless dirt cup in a black tray that says "PULL". Pull this tray out, inspect the filter, and if dirty rinse under water until clean. Make sure that the filter is completely dry before reinstalling and using the vacuum cleaner again.

After inspecting all of the filters and removing the clog, let the vacuum cool down (usually just a few hours) and try to turn it on again. When you turn it on, remove the attachment hose and make sure that you have suction from the hose. When putting the attachment hose back down into the floor section of the vacuum, listen to see if you hear a change in the noise the motor makes. If you hear a higher pitched squeeling noise, this indicates that there may be a clog in the lower section of the vacuum as well. If the noise is the same then you should be ok.

If the vacuum continues to shut itself off, then either the clog has not been completely removed, or the safety thermal switch inside may now be faulty, and only at this point should you take your machine into a repair store.

I hope that this helped you!
