I figured the glass thing was a slow blow fuse.
Why it blew in the first place I'm not sure, as the batteries and motor are okay.
I bought something similar from J-car and whacked it in, it's been working like a charm ever since.
It was probably caused by the canister being too full & the motor running unloaded that caused the over current protection to do it's job.
I just hope it wasn't a resister that limited the charging current to the batteries. I guess if I see a small mushroom shaped cloud of smoke when i put it on the charger, I'll know it was.

Wont charge


Probably the battery pack is worn out or has a "memory" problem. A worn out pack will have one or more cells shorted internally (one or more cells read 0 Volts, and an ohmmeter reads less than 1 Ohm when connected to the 0 Volt cell). If it is a memory problem, it is possible to recondition it, but not simple. You have to remove the pack, then connect a 150 Ohm resistor across each cell and let the battery sit until the cells are completely discharged. You can't just connect a resistor across the entire battery pack because the stronger cells will reverse-charge the weaker ones, which will cause them to short out.

Running the battery too far down will cause the reverse-charge problem, but not running it down at least occasionally will cause the memory problem. (Memory problem explained: the cadmium crystals grow when the battery is charged and shrink as it is discharged. However, the larger ones tend to remain intact on discharge and grow faster than the smaller ones. Eventually they block the ion flow through the battery, so the battery loses capacity. It's called a memory effect because the battery only "remembers" it has the capacity to go down as far as it is habitually used. Running the cell all the way down dissolves the over-sized crystals.)

It is possible you have a problem with the charger. Check for voltage on the charger plug. It should be about the rated output voltage printed on the charger box before messing with the battery.

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.

My electrolux oxygen canister vacuum stopped working while using it last night. i have change the bag, checked the hose, checked the filter and waited overnight to try again. Still not working. what...


It could be the electrical contacts in the canister. These are a cheap set-up and can easily be pushed out of reach of the hose contacts. They may test good when using a multimeter on them, but the prongs of an MM are generally longer than the prongs on the hose, so this can lead to a bad reading.
It's also possible that one of the circuit boards has gone bad. These are quite expensive to replace.
Take it to a Sears service center for a better diagnosis and estimate of repair. It may be cheaper to go with a new vacuum. Read review of vacuums being considered prior to purchase.

Electrolux oxygen 3 fuse


The fuse on my ELECTROLUX Oxygen3's sumo board did have clear markings: F5AL250V - this is a 5A/250V 20mm fuse made by BEL FUSE, however, any other such fuse should work. The fuse on my board was blown (luckily, what caused it seems to be a glitch as replacing the fuse was all that I had to do). I got 5A/250V 20mm fuse from RadioShack and, expecting that this could happen again, I also installed a simple (5A/250V-rated) automotive fuse holder (also from RadioShack) (the only fuse holder that was available at a local store) and it works wonderfully now. Should the fuse blow on me again, I should be able to replace it in less than 3 minutes.

Electrolux Oxygen 3 vacuum cleaner


It's on the right hand side and is soldered directly to the board, it looks like a little glass vial about 2/3 of an inch long and about 1/4 inch in diameter. If there's not a tiny metal filament running the length of the fuse, it's gone bad.

I hope that helps, I'm describing it from memory since I don't have one in front of me.

Best of luck,

Electrolux Epic overheating


It stays closed until the temp. is excedded, then opens. Does the motor shaft turn easily or does it drag. If it drags, then that is what is causing the heat problem. Not sure what it should read, it could be bad, but it should read low ohmns, so it is hard to say.
