If the power indicator is not working, and your outlet is okay, then the problem is going to be in the cord or wiring. Carefully check the visible portion of the cord. If there are any cuts, or insulation scraped away, take the machine to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store/service center replacement. If no visible damage, take it in and let them find the problem, and repair it. Your vacuum should have many years of use left in it. For the store nearest you, go to http://www.aerushome.com/storelocator/, type in zip code, and click "view dealer list".

Kenmore vacuum just died


Sorry about that . Before you bury it see if there is a reset button you can push to reset it. Most Vacs have reset buttons. Check electrical wires and plugs to make sure they are ok. Is the plug outlet you plug it into working. These are things that you can check. did it die or did you break a belt. Does it try to start but won't.If I could see it it would be easier to know but these are just ideas. Good Luck.

Vacuum will be working and then it cuts out, like it loses power. Plug it into a different outlet and it starts working again.


Your vacuum has a thermal reset built into the motor. If it is getting to hot it will shut off and won't turn on until it cools down. This is a sign of a clog somewhere or the filters need to be replaced. If you are getting dust building up on the vacuum that is an indicator the filters may need replaced.

Electrolux mondo z1175 vacuum cleaner not working.


Do not get upset with me, but I must ask this question!!! 1) Did u try any other appliance in that outlet, or 2) Did you go back to the original outlet to see if the vacuum works there? It is kind of a coincidence that it quit working only after you moved it to another area. Let me know please!

Why is my eureka super broom not turning on?


When machine does not work, first check wall outlet ( plug in an hair dryer or table lamp to check wall outlet. ) and it that is OK than check your power cord for break ( if wire's are broken inside outer coating the cord will be very weak at that point )

Power will not turn on


Lisa,

I would first be certain to check the list in order to save your money.

  1. Use another electrical device in same outlet as vacuum.
  2. Unplug & check any damaged to vacuum power cord.
  3. Check for tripped motor protection fault. (very small reset button)
  4. Smell of burning from motor vacuum area.
plugged hose causing motor over heat issues.
Let us know if any of above resolves the issue.
Best of luck to ya!

Electrolux canister, maybe fifteen years old, green light indicating cord is plugged in is not lit, nor will the the vacuum turn on. Model 2100 Omni-flow automatic, number on bottom of unit F14970F. Thank...


The light indicates the vacuum is getting power, not only the cord is plugged in. If there's a break in the cord, other wiring, or bad connections, the light will also not light because the vacuum isn't getting power.
Have it checked over at an authorized Aerus Electrolux shop. The service tech can diagnose and tell you the problem, as well as provide an estimate. There should be no charge for this.

Vacuum does not have power and indicator light that looks like a plug is lit in red or orange


This light is an indicator that the vacuum is getting power, so there's another problem.
First, turn the dial on top so the smallest dot lines up with the arrow. Then check the after filter beneath the tool caddy. Remove and/or replace if it's dirty. Try the vacuum now. If it still doesn't work, continue.
Turn vacuum off. Detach hose. Turn vacuum on. Does it run without the hose? If not, the control valve assembly inside the vacuum is bad and needs replaced. If it does run without the hose, place palm of hand over opening. Does it run? If it shuts off at this point, the tubes connected to the CVA are probably clogged and need cleaned. Either of these repairs need to be done by an authorized Aerus Electrolux service tech.
Other problems may include bad switches, broken/bad wires/connectors. There is the possibility of a burnt out motor, but it's not likely. The only way to get a definite diagnosis is to take the vacuum to an Aerus Electrolux store and have the tech troubleshoot it.
