Central vacuum won't turn on

CentraLUX by Aerus - Model E130G 120 volts
Won't turn on. Checked outlet-is working.
Worked fine until I emptied the canister and rinsed the blue filter. Put it back on damp but did not use vacuum for few days. Thought it would dry. Could that be the problem? Need advice fast-part in a few days and I need to vacuum : (

Check your filter to make sure that it is seated completely in the unit. There is a switch at the top that the filter has to press before the unit will run. It is there to protect the unit from running without a filter. If you remove the filter, and look up into the unit, you will see it. It's a longish white plastic piece that you can depress by hand. Listen for the faint click while you are inserting the filter to be sure the filter is depressing the switch. Good luck!

Aerus Electrolux: Don't Void Your Warranty


Aerus Electrolux Warranty
Aerus carries a great warranty on their machines, up to 20 years limited on top of the line models. However, there are some things that WILL void the warranty. The following are probably the most common.

Use of generic/made-to-fit bags. There’s a reason genuine bags are strongly advised for use with the Aerus and previous Electrolux vacuums, and it’s not just the strength of the bag. Fine dust particles will get through generic bags and result in a damaged motor.

Vacuuming wet carpet and liquids. Although you may try to make sure you don’t use your vacuum on liquids, children, other family members, and/or house cleaners won’t necessarily be as careful/caring. If kids notice the vacuum doesn’t work anymore, they may try to hide the evidence, thus you may not know about the problem.
Keep in mind that if you have your carpet steam cleaned, it can take a week or more to thoroughly dry. Vacuuming during this time will result in water/mud getting into the motor, ruining it almost immediately. A wet bag will also usually break open, sending contents through the motor. The motor will have to be replaced, but it won’t be covered by a warranty.

Dismantling of vacuum by unauthorized persons. If you’re having a problem with your vacuum, and you think it’s an easy, quick fix, don’t. You may get it fixed, but this will void the warranty for future problems. It’s simply not worth it.

Commercial use. The Aerus commercial upright is made for tougher work, but only carries a one year limited warranty. Even though your machine may have a longer, better warranty when used properly, using it as part of a cleaning or similar business voids the warranty. Solution; Don’t do it.

Aerus Electrolux does NOT warranty machines sold over the internet, such as on E-bay. Only those purchased through an authorized franchise or representative carry Aerus' warranty.

Be aware of your machines’ capabilities and warranties. An Aerus Electrolux owner has made a wise investment in a top-of-the-line home cleaning system and generally desires to maintain the system in prime working condition, with full benefits.

Contact Aerus for additional information. You can find a local shop/consultant through their home page: http://aerushome.com/

My "service" light has been


Most likely it's a dirty filter. Remove dirt tank and empty it. Remove the filter and rinse thoroughly in running warm water until the water runs clear. Allow to air dry thoroughly before using. I recommend having two filters so you have one to use while the other is drying.
If this doesn't help, do call a rep or take the vacuum to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store. A diagnosis is usually free.

What's the "Service" LED for


Page 6 of the manual states,
"The Service LED is a red light

that comes on when service

is required. Please call an

Aerus location to perform a

service check on the CentraLux

(including the hose, wand and
power nozzle system)."

If a rep comes to your home, there's no charge.

I have a 20yr old electrolux central vac that the motor just went bad. in wondering whether to replace motor or replace whole unit i have found an electrolux unit and a aerus unit. someone told me elect....


Motor to replace or rebuild:

Depending if your motor just started to get noisy, you can take it to a private vacuum repair shop and most rebuild for around $80 to $100.00. Usually they replace top/bottom bearing and the armature carbon brushes.

If it's loud and vibrating and probably sparking. Do not bother to rebuild, the armature is now probably damaged and not worth the new parts.

Replacing the motor is pretty basic and usually saves you about $150.00. They're pretty simple to release out of the unit and are pretty simple to remove and reinstall.

To find out your replacement motor number you will need to find the stamped model number on the motor itselt. It is a 6-8 digit number. That is the Ametek Motor Model number. Ametek is used in pretty well all central vacuum systems. Motors range from $99 to $239.00
