Ensure filter is clean. Check switch near filter.
Try reset switch.
It could very likely be the circuit board/power module in the machine near the motor. It could also be a worn out motor. It's best to take to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store and let a service tech check it out.

Good day!

You have to do is:
Check the battery if it is leak.Use a voltmeter to test the output voltage of the battery.If your battery had a low supply voltage even you charge it for 3 hours and above.Replace the battery immediately.


Thank you and good luck.

Unit will not turn off. Have to unplug it.


You probably have a stuck relay or wires are touching. Pull the low voltage wires off the vacuum, if it keeps running it's the relay. You can try tapping with medium force next to where the low voltage wires are attached to the unit using the handle end of a hammer. Even if this works it's time to replace the circuit board. Check with a local vacuum cleaner repair center. You can disconnect the pipe and low voltage wires and it should just lift straight up. Take it to the repair center so you can save service call fee, because after all it's just a large canister vacuum.

Our Easy-Flo built in vacuum system will not turn off, even when the hose is disconnected. We have to turn it off manually. Could it be a short in one of the wall outlets causing this?


Some models have an on/off switch on the power unit itself. This switch is used to turn your power unit on when you are right at the machine.
If there is no switch on the power unit, unplug your power unit from the wall socket, look for two low voltage wires coming out of the power unit. These two low voltage wires are usually either attached with terminals or are tied to two wires coming out with plastic screw on wire caps. Disconnect the 2 low voltage wires. Plug your power unit back in. If the power unit does not come back on then yes, the problem is most likely a short in the outlet wiring. If the power unit still comes on with the 2 low voltage wires unattached, then the problem is in the internal circuitry of the power unit, usually a relay or some units have a circuit board with relay, circuit breaker and other components on it. The relay or circuit board will have to be replaced.
It's a little difficult to check for a short if you have multiple outlets, but if you've recently done some renovations you might start checking in that area.

Nutone Scovill 350 will only turn off if unplugged


Some units have an on/off switch on the power unit itself. Check to make sure that is not turned on. Unplug your power unit and remove the 2 low voltage wires (not the power cord itself) . The low voltage wires start at the unit and run throught your home and attach to each hose inlet. They are usually attached to the unit by simple wire terminals or wire capped to small wires coming out. Just unlug the terminals or unscrew the wire caps and pull the connections apart. Plug your machine back in. If it still comes on the problem is the relay or circuit board/switch/ relay assembly inside the unit. If it doesn't come on with the low voltage wires unattached then you may have two wires touching somewhere in the low voltage wiring.

NuTone Central vac won't turn off


If the central vacuum tank will not turn OFF even with the switch in the “OFF” position, then the low-voltage wires should be disconnected from the tank. If the tank continues to run and still will not turn off, then most likely the relay inside is defective (but it could be a defective and/or shorted ON/OFF switch). If with the low-voltage wires disconnected the tank is able to then be turned off with the switch, then there is a short in the low-voltage wires or a hose is plugged into an inlet somewhere. ~ TTURAMBAR

I have a central vacuum system. When I disconnect the hose from a wall outlet the central canister does not shut down dispite my turning off the vacuum at the handle of the hose. The only way I can get...


What I'm hearing is the canister(Not the Powerhead) portion of the unit is running all the time unless you unplug it. this problem could be caused by a short in one of your low voltage lines running through the house. To determine that just unplug one/both low voltage lines from the canister, and plug it back into the recepticle. If it doesn't start up then you figured out that it is in the house somewhere and not the unit. If it is in the house I would check for water in the valves, or you're just gonna have to chase down the short. If the unit is still running with the low voltage wires disconnected then it is probably the relay on the board, which means you will need a new board unless you're expereinced at soldering and want give it a try replacing just the relay. Which you'll probably need a new board by the time you're done anyhow. LOL

Good Luck

Nu-tone 475 keeps running even without hose plugged in.


If the central vacuum tank will not turn OFF even with the switch in the “OFF” position, then the low-voltage wires should be disconnected from the tank. Once this is done, if the tank continues to run and cannot be turned off with the switch, then most likely the relay inside is defective and needs to be replaced (but it could be a defective and/or shorted ON/OFF switch). If with the low-voltage wires disconnected at the vacuum tank, it can be turned off with the internal switch, then either there is a short in the low-voltage wires, or else there is a hose still plugged into an inlet somewhere. ~ TTURAMBAR

Low voltage wiring


Probably just didn't wire the l/v side of the relay properly. Or forgot to plug the leads from the outlets back in to the vac after you got it all hooked back up. Folks do it to me all the time and then make like it's my fault! Ha ha.

Jump the l/v contacts inside the CV. If it goes: trace outward toward the outlets to see if something shook loose while it was apart. If you can't jump the l/v with a plier/screwdriver at the CV or even inside it, you have an issue on the board (either how you've connected to it or it's defective itself). The prob is that there's dozens of diff board configs, plus the relays and transformers weren't together on the same board in the old days. If you've got one of these models with a massive transformer separate from the relays get out the test leads and make sure you've got adequate voltage coming out of her to power the relay coil.
