Remove the hose fitting on the lower back of the vacuum and you will probably find a large amount of debris lodged in the hose. That hose leads to an opening right behind the main roller brush. If you remove the brush, it is easier to remove any clogs that are inside the hose. Once you have checked that there is no clogs in that hose reconnect the hose and the brush. You should then remove all three filters and wash only the two filters inside the canister. The third filter is a HEPA filter located in a compartment on the lower front side of the vacuum. Make sure you do not wash the HEPA filter.Clean it by tapping it inside a trash can outside the house since a lot of dust will come out of it. Once the other two filters are dry, put them back inside the canister and also jake sure that the canister is empty and clean.

I've noticed the same problem. I put a cork in it and the suction improved, but I'm worried about overheaing the engine. Did you ever find out why the hole is there, and what to do about it?

If the motor comes on then either the shaft connection at the fan is loose or the belt to the beater bar is bad.

Vacuum has lost suction and is making a hissing noise


I had the same problem with my Kompressor.Initially I had cleaned all three removable filters.There is two in the canister that can be washed with dish soap. The HEPA filter is located in a compartment on the lower front side of the vacuum.This HEPA filter should not be washed.I found that tapping it inside a trash can dislodged alot of dust from it. After cleaning all the filters and canister I was having the same hissing noise coming from a small hole near the bottom of the vacuum. Next I removed a hose fitting on the lower back of the vacuum and that is where I found a very large amount of debris clogging up the hose. I used a metal coat

The alarm on my machine keeps sounding; even though I have cleaned the filters, emptied the dust bucket, its driving me mad as I rely so much on this machine; with dogs, cats and children and a farm h


Please check the suction on your machine? Is it strong? It may be that you have a clog, particularly since you have dogs, cats and children!

It suction is fine, have you checked the rotating roller brush? If the point of pickup is poor on your floors, you may need to check your belt. You may have picked up a large object that has affected the tension in the belt.

Suction cuts out, no clogs found in any of the inlets. It's an LG V200R, 4 months old. Returned it to LG twice and it still happens after a couple of uses. Is this a design flaw in the vacuum? Do you...


I bought the lg kompressor 2 mo ago. Made hissing sound and no suction to canister, but the hose had good suction. The inlet was clear, but there was a clog up inside the vacuum between the inlet at the beater bar and the lower hole that empties into the canister(very hard to find). Use a wire hanger to clear it out. just keep jamming it up there and it will clear eventually. There is a clog somewhere, you just have to find it.

It stopped working while vacuuming. Still getting power, compressor still working but not sucking.


I'm an owner of an LG LuV200R vacuum cleaner. After years of use it started having an overheating issue where the suction motor stopped after only a few minutes use. The brush motor and compressor motor still worked. After cooling down with power off for at least a few minutes suction motor worked again but quickly shut down. Here's how I fixed mine:

First make sure to clean all 3 filters and let dry for 24 hours if cleaned with water (recommend, but compressed air works good too). A clogged HEPA filter could cause overheating. Check all air passages and hoses for blockages. I've always maintained/cleaned my machine so I had to go a little deeper...

On the control board there is a semiconductor which screws to a right angle aluminum heatsink. See attached picture. My screw was slightly loose; loose enough for there to be a tiny gap between the metals so little heat was dissipated from the semiconductor. My infrared thermometer showed 260°F while running. I tightened the screw and running temp went down to 160°F. Once reassembled the vacuum has yet to overheat and shut down. It's a great vacuum so I'm glad it's working again.

To access the control board you need to remove the front facing plastic motor housing located below where the cord is stored. ALWAYS unplug unit before opening. 2 screws face the rear of unit, (now tilt top of vacuum down all the way) 2 screws face the front at the bottom, and 2 more right above HEPA filter (remove HEPA filter). There is a nut behind culprit screw so you may need to remove the control board attached with 2 screws. I recommend using compressed air to clean off control board if dusty, and check for cut/burnt wires. I had a darkened wire which I guided away from control board at reassembly.

A dab of locktite wouldn't be a bad idea on the loose screw/nut. Hope this helps others.

Eletrolux lux7000 manu and how to retract the power cord?


For the user's/owner's manual, go to the below link, click on the arrow below where it says "Older Models", click on Lux 7000, click on "download". If you want a service manual, they are only available to Aerus Electrolux stores.
For retracting the cord, try tipping vacuum up on it's back end and gently pulling and releasing cord. This will often cause it to retract. If not, keep in mind that the canister portion of this vacuum has a 7 year warranty on it, so depending on when you purchased it, the cordwinder may still be covered. The warranty does not cover normal wear and tear, or abuse. There are other things that will void the warranty.
