    This is a cordless unit as I mentioned in my question. Your fix is not applicable.

    Sorry for the delay. I have two of these units. Both worked worked great for first few weeks before the problem started to occur with both machines. The machines are fully charged before each use. According to the manual, there is an electronic circuit that shuts the unit down to prevent overdischarge of the battery pack. I opened one unit after amany repeated off/on cycles to ccheck the voltage on the pack. Even after all these cycles the the motor seemed to run as if the unit was fully charged. I read 9volts. The pack consists of eight 1.2v Electrolux batteries wired in series. The charging unit is rated at 15v. I think that the electronic circuit is shutting down prematurally. What do you think?

    You are correct. The problem is the electronic over current circuit that prevents a possible overheating of the battery pack. My unit will run for 10 - 15 seconds and then shuts off. The over current sensor is reset by moving the power switch to the "OFF" position. If you turn the vacuum back on it will run for a few more seconds before shutting off again. There is a small circuit board in the vacuum that contains the over current protection circuit. It uses an NXP Semiconductor HEF4001BP quad 2-input NOR gate. If you are good at soldering you might try replacing this chip. Otherwise, buy a new vacuum. The problem is not in the thermal circuit breaker located in the handle. I have bypassed the breaker and the problem still occurs.

First you would check the cord to assure there are no cuts or damage to the cord this can cause this situation as well as where the cord goes into the unit having been pulled by the cord would also cause this same situation following this you would then follow to where the cord goes into the machine and check the terminal connections to the motor itself as well this is basicly a power issue and you would resolve that issue by finding which piece is where the power stops if you were to take a voltage meter and measure the amount of current going into the motor if the motor has none then you know that your problem is before the motor and most likely in the cord if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank this opinion it allows me to help others in similar situations in the future. Also if the unit is still under the 1 year warranty on this unit do not attempt to repair you would void your warranty if you did. Instead contact either the place you bought the unit or message me back and I can look this information of how to contact the manufacturer Thanks again for using fixya

    oh sorry didnt see you posting about it being cordless then it would have a battery pack correct in which you would then test your rechargeable batterys and the wiring going to the motor and the switch itself it has a 9.6volt battery rechargeable battery.

    The life of rechargeable batteries can vary between several weeks to several years, depending on the type of battery, the way the batteries are charged and discharged, and the conditions they are used in. the issue is still the same with the wireing its just differnt from it having a cord to not having one there is a bad connection point between your battery area and your motor or your switch take out the batterys and perform continuity tests on the wires going from the battery compartment to the switch and also to the motor the switch recieves power from the battery and then the wireing then goes to the motor if you have any further questions message me back Thanks Rick

I have a Eureka Easyclean that will not hold a charge and want to replace the Electrolux battery it comes with and cannot find one. Can you?


Sadly, the battery is not replaceable on this unit. According to the schematic, I can get almost every part but that. This is common with all of the cordless units too. Batteries are usually the same price as purchasing a new unit. If the unit is more than 1 year old, sorry to say its pretty much garbage. IF the unit is less than one year, it should be under warranty and replaced by your local Eureka/Electrolux dealer.

Also, not all hope is lost on this unit, if there is an obvious burn, or connection issue, a little bit of solder should correct the problem.
Good luck!!

The machine shuts off after 2 - 3 minutes. Turning it off and back on gets about 10 secnd run. The batteries are NOT discharged. Have to it off and back on repeatedly ot finish the job.

I have a Eureka The Boss Smartvac. I was vacuuming and it just went off. It was on one second and then off the next. I changed the bag thinking it was full but it didn't go back on. What's happening?


it overheated, just have to wait a few minutes, maybe change bag and have a look at filter in bottom of chamber where bag is located, clean it if its really dirty. lack of flow will cause the vacuum to overheat.

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Not knowing the brand name and you do have the model # Z570 but I would suggest that you contact your local vac dealer and they should be able to tell you where to get it or they can order it for you, you need to supply the brand name and model # in order to get the part. As an example, you can use the Eureka website as: (if the brand name is Eureka)
