The problem is most likely the switch. It could be a bad/worn switch, or simply a broken wire or bad connection to the switch. An easy fix at an authorized Electrolux service center.

The sweeper attachement went "dead." What could be


more than likely the overload or reset button has been tripped within the powerhead.

Press the red button or the square button on the left side top of the unit, more than likely it is the red one, and it should start up for you again.

Good luck,
Mark

The performance indicator light is red and I have no suction.


If the motor runs, then the problem is usually plugged air passages near the bag/canister or the sweeper head/hose. Remove any hoses/bags/canisters so that you are dealing with only the vacuum producing parts. If it has a sweeper head, remove the bottom plate and clean any visible clogs in the air passages--the same with the area where the debris collects normally. Turn on the motor to see if you are getting air flow through the machine. If nothing, dig deeper into those air passages. Hope this helps!

My canister kenmore progressive is not sucking and is sptitting carpet powder dust all over the place. could it be it needs a new hpa filter? if so where on the vacuum would it be located?


Remove the hose from the canister, and turn on the vacuum. Does it produce good air flow into the hose port?. If ok, remove the hose from the sweeper unit and plug the end into the canister. If ok, check the bottom of the sweeper head for plugging of the air passages and inspect the sweeper bar for accumulation of thread, hair, and string. If the first test produced no air flow, then open the canister and remove the bag--turn the vacuum on and check for air flow into the motor. If still nothing, then check the hepa filter which should be near the air output from the canister. Go to: searspartsdirect.com and enter the sears model number from the information plate. The machine's part drawings will appear and select the vacuum case drawing which should display the hepa filter location and also be able to order the filter from the web site. Hope this helps!

Sweeper stops running, when I jiggle the electric cord


The wiggle test is very popular and widely used. If you can gently wiggle the area that is in question and it can cause a change. Then yes, it is an electrical issue (loose wire or connection) but if not, and you have to be aggressive with the unit to get a change. Then it could be a bad motor.

Bissell powerforce bagless vacuum,when turned on dust flies out sweeper


Dust flying out of the sweeper indicates that their is a blockage in the pathway that the dirt normally travels to get into the dirt collection chamber. Turn the sweeper upside down and look for a blockage of some kind. Also, empty out the canister and look to see that the pathway into the canister is clear.

My dyson animal sweeper just stopped running


Take it to your local vac shop and let them diagnose it. You are within warranty so if it is clogged warranty will not cover that, but everything else warranty will cover.

SCUNCI RECHARGEABLE CORDLESS SWEEPER


I bought the rechargable sweeper and it was missing a part. The 800# (866-917-6600) is defunct and Conair, who bought Scunci out, said the sweeper division had been out of business for a while now...guess we're all stuck!

Eleectrolux canister sweeper power switch


There should be screws holding the handle asembly on to the top. One near the from, another by the handle, then slide the door near the back, there are 2 more screws there. with the handle off, you can get to the switch. Hopefully you can fina a replacement, alot of parts for the older Electrolux is No Longer Available.
