Question about Electrolux Centralux Vacuum
I dont know if you had your unit looked at yet but it sounds like the Power module is going. I repair the machines so I know some of the work.

I have an Electrolux Centralux. When I plug the hose in at one of the wall outlets the motor will not start. If I go to the motor and slap the unit it will start.....then...it will not stop unless I unplug the power cord to the motor.
If I plug the power cord back in, the unit will not restart until I slap the motor unit again. The unit has only been used 20 - 30 times.
Any suggestions? Thanks, Bruce
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. You may have a bad inlet or household outlet; try all the inlets in the house too. But it sounds to me that your carbon brushes are dirty and need cleaning or replacing would be my 1st suggestion. Take a good wire brushes or pipe cleaner to clean the inside of the carbon brushes if they stick then replace them. So if the unit has only been used 20 to 30 times I would suggest some one to come and look @ it who did the install because it is still under a factory warranty and if you start messing with things you will void the factory warranty on the motor. And then if it is the motor for some reason then the factory or vendor will eat the cost of the repair. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
