You don't mention whether it was the canister or upright model, but if it sounds differnet than what it usually does, then there is a potential problem. It could be anything from a full/clogged bag to a dirty filter to a clogged hose. You can check the hose by tyring to drop a coin through it.
If you didn't get it serviced at an authorized Aerus Electrolux shop, there could very well be other problems that were caused by an untrained service tech.
If it was recently serviced, and none of the above suggestions solve the problem, take it back to the shop that serviced it.
Also, keep in mind that these vacuums carry a 10 year warranty, but if serviced by a non-Aerus shop, the warranty is voided.

My SteamVac SpinScrub works fine then all of a sudden, the noise level of the vac seems higher and does not **** up water. I turn off vac then turn it back on, works good for awhile, then noisy, higher...


It sounds as if the ball in the tank in shutting down the suction prematurely. Be sure there is a gap of about 3/4 inch between the top of the filter inside the tank, and the lid of the dirty water tank. Without this gap, suction will pull the ball up too soon.

Vacuum cleaner Lux model motor fails to start


This vacuum has a 10 year warranty on the motor, and 5 years on everything else. Look in the yellow pages under vacuums, for the AERUS dealer, that is the new name for the traditional Electrolux company.....

Rainbow E series sounds "whiny" and loud while running


The whinning sound may be the bearings are bad. This will have to be taken care of or it will wear your motor brushes down very quickly. It is not generally caused by the filter, but by not be cleaned properly and may have been stored on its water basin.

Lux legacy


Actually the problem is inside of the canister itself. You need to change a part called the control valve. Occaisonally when fine particles get inside of the valve it damages the inside of the valve, sending a false reading to the main motor, causing it to shut off. This is a relatively quick and easy repair and should be recieved on a same day basis.
