Question about Vacuums

1 Answer

My electrolux oxygen canister cuts on and off. I have to open and close the vacuum, or take the base of the hose off and then re-insert. I have to do all these things before it will start up again. I sometimes shake the hose around, then it will come back on. If I try to dust with the dust brush (like a lamp shade or shelf) and the suction pulls against the object, the vacuum goes off for awhile. Sometimes I'll have to reset the vacuum by unplugging the electric cord. I never get to finish vacuuming. The unit was brand new when I bought it from and individual. It has never worked right. I took it to a repair shop, they said they bypassed a computer board to get it working. The man said the rug power tool wont work, and he bypassed the computer board so I can at least use it on my hardwood floors and to dust. But since I picked it up from the shop it drives me nuts turning off just as I get into my cleaning.

Maybe you should have taken it back to that shop, it appartently isn't fixed. I would have replace that board, don't believe in modifing, you usually end up with other problems, like you have. One thing to check is maybe you have a partial clog in the hose or wands. A clog would cause this shutting off, then restarting after it has cooled down. If this has a hepa filter, and it has a reset for that filter, press it to see if that is the problem. But I know that board would cost you approx. $90 to $100 just for the part.

The on/off buttons are not working anymore? Any


With your hose plugged into the vacuum, check your cord at the outlet, is it securely plugged in? There are no signs of cord damage? If so, you will need to take it to the shop,but it probably just has the wrong sequence in the power buttons.. turn on the main unit switch then turn on the hose switch to the canister, if no power, then hit the switch on the machine again, it should power up, if it does not, open up the bag compartment, and shut it again, making sure that the bag is aligned inside and the cover is closed tightly. Did this fixya? Let me know. You may need to contact electrolux for a replacement hose. they are really good about warranty service and will send yu a new hose at no charge if they determine that is the problem. Here is some contact info. Thanks, Rene(the Vacuum Doctor)

EL7020A ELECTROLUX VAC SHUTS OFF AFTER 10 MIN


The symptoms you describe are typical of a vac that has a blockage (hence poor suction). It cuts out because it's over-heating. You need to check the hose, the filters and anywhere else where something may have got stuck. Blockages are often caused by things like paper clips, but can be caused by something as apparently harmless as a piece of paper which gets stuck and then debris builds up behind it and causes a log-jam.
