Question about Electrolux Vacuums
I have the same model. When the machine over heats, it trips a circuit inside and this turns it off to prevent further damage. After this has happened, you will need to push the reset switch in order to turn it on again.
There are two things that can cause it to over heat. One is string or debris caught in the beater bar that turns against the carpet. The other is not empting it.
Before you use it (everytime) you need to turn it upside down and pull all of the hair and string that is caught on the beater bar out. Take a pair of scissors if necessary to make sure that nothing is holding the bar from turning.
After doing the above, empty the bag and make sure that there is nothing packed or backed up in the unit.
After both of the above are finished, you will need to reset the machine so it will turn back on again. on the side closest to you when using it, on the bottom before you get to the floor, there is a small red plastic button. Push this button it a couple of times to re-set the machine.
Plug it in and turn it on. It should work. The only other thing that can ruin the motor in that machine is going over water. if it wont turn on after resetting it, then its possible that the engine got too hot and it might not be repairable.
