Question about Electrolux Centralux Vacuum
I plugged in the hose this morning and the motor was running but not the vacuum. I went to the garage and the unit was unplugged. I plugged the unit back in but it still is not working. I noticed a black button the the side of the unit near the pilot light so I pushed that but still nothing. I also emptied the cannister and still it did not work.
Any ideas before I call the service guy in?
If the light came on when you plugged it in, then you have power to the unit. You can take a coin and short across the two pins where the small, low voltage wires connect to the unit. Just remove the two wires, they should just pull off, and touch the two pins together with the coin. The unit should come on. If it doesn't, and the light is on, you may have a bad motor or a bad relay on the board inside the unit. Another thing to check is the filter. It has to be installed properly or the unit will not run. The top of the filter depresses a switch so that the unit cannot be operated without a filter in place. Good Luck!
