    Was in the middle of vacuuming when the vacuum stopped and the number on the panel which shows suction button is flashing. Vacuum will turn on but once it gets to suction 3 it stops???? Help would be great.

There is a relay board on the unit (where the dirt goes) There are two small wires that connect and usually a switch near by. This switch has an Auto and Manual setting. If set to manual the unit will run all the time or until set back to Auto. If it is set to Auto and is still running, unplig the two small wires. They are sometimes on screw terminals behind a round plactic cover. It does not matter which terminal the wires go back on just one on each.

If the unit turns off the problem is in the wire running to each valve or a paper clip is shorting across the pins of a wall outlet. (something like this).

If the unit does not turn off once the wires are removed, the relay in the unit is stuck closed and will need to be replaced. Time to call a pro unless you have good electrical skills.

Hope this helps!

You may have a stuck relay or one of your access port switches may be bad. According to the owners manual: "A complete check of all Wall Inlet and Power Unit low voltage control lead connections (external yellow leads). Turn system off by removing fuse or tripping circuit breaker at
house fuse box."

Have you checked the roller brush. Thread, string, and hair wrapped around the brush will create stess on the motor, resulting in overheating and shut off. Clean the brush and try.

Vaccum was being used and suddenly stopped. checked the filter, circuit breaker, and pressed restart button. still does not come on


To test the vacuum motor and circuit card, detach low voltage wires from vacuum. Using insulated needle-nose pliers, place points of pliers in each wiring connector. This should start and run the motor as long as the pliers are in place. If it does, the problem is elsewhere, If the motor doesn't run, either the motor, circuit board, or internal wiring is bad. It needs to be taken to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store for repair/s.
If the motor runs, the problem exists in the hose and attachments. Broken wiring, switches, and worn or loose wand connections could be the problem. If you are unable to test the hose and wiring for continuity, take the whole machine to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store for a free diagnosis.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It sounds to me like you have a bad replay switch on the inside of the Electrolux Central Vacuum and it needs replacing. They are not too bad as per the cost if you are mechanically able but B4 you attempt to do that I would have it checked by a local vacuum cleaner central vacuum service tech just in case. I will give you the website and the factory phone number for the Electrolux listed below. 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.

Check the motor brushes, they may be worn down and not making contact with the armature. There may also be relays and one could be bad.
