Can't shut off my vacuucm, it keeps on working despite the fact that I place it on OFF.

My vacuum keeps on working even when I turn it off. The only way to shut it is to pull the plug out of the outlet. I have unscrewed the nozzle and checked the switch, i have also taken out the switch and it still does the same thing.

1 Answer



I have resolved this issue, I just opened the nozzele and checked the wires for any damaged ones. In deed one was damaged, therefore i soldered it.

Vax Air Reach bar won't spin

If the beater bar on your Vax Air Reach vacuum cleaner won't spin, despite the fact that the green light is on, there may be a few possible causes:
  1. Belt is worn or broken: If the beater bar belt is worn or broken, it will not spin. Check the belt to see if it is intact and not stretched or frayed. If it is, you may need to replace the belt.
  2. Beater bar is clogged: If the beater bar is clogged with hair, debris, or other objects, it may not be able to spin. Remove the beater bar and clean it thoroughly, removing any blockages or tangles.
  3. Motor is faulty: If the motor that powers the beater bar is faulty, it may not be able to turn the bar. If the above steps do not resolve the issue, the motor may need to be repaired or replaced.
Here are a few steps you can take to troubleshoot the issue:
  1. Turn off the vacuum and unplug it from the power source.
  2. Remove the beater bar by releasing the clips or screws that hold it in place.
  3. Check the beater bar for blockages, and clean it thoroughly.
  4. Check the beater bar belt for wear or damage, and replace it if necessary.
  5. Reinstall the beater bar and secure it in place.
  6. Plug in the vacuum and turn it on to see if the beater bar is now spinning.
If the above steps do not work, it may be necessary to contact Vax customer support or a professional repair technician for further assistance.

Why would the filter in the ball keep unlatching while vacuming? The ball get hot also.

Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

Please be assured it's normal for the Ball to become hot in use. This is where the motor is housed, to give the vacuum a low centre of gravity. The motor will generate heat as it runs, but it's protected by a sensor which will shut the vacuum down for protection if it starts to overheat.

However, the HEPA post-motor filter should stay in place in use. It's worth checking the filter is correctly in place, as shown in the video below. Press the filter firmly down into place until you hear an audible 'click' from the release catch:

If you're confident the filter is still coming out of place in use, despite being correctly and securely fitted, we should be able to help you further. Please give our experts a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

If it shuts off after being used for a whirl and won't come back on for a while it is probably overheating. The heat sensor shuts the machine off and won't let it turn back on until it cools down. If this is the issue it could be the filters are clogged and not allowing enough airflow to keep the motor cool. Most bag less vacuum filters should be replaced frequently even if they are cleaned regularly.

My back wheel won't roll on my electrolux 2100. If I turn the cannister over, I can spin the wheel, but when I place it right side down, it just drags on the floor. How do I replace it?

Hi you need to find a local Vacuum repair place one that deals in Electrolux, and go there and take the vacuum or the make and model, and ask for a replacement part, that is the only way that you would be able to obtain spare parts, in fact while you are there, perhaps even inquire as to how much it may cost to do it? ask for a "Quote" and go from there.

My vacuum turns on for a second and shuts off. I have replaced the bag and filter, and it still happens. The replace bag light turns on after I do this.

1. Detach the hose and turn on. If it runs, place hand over opening. If it shuts off, the control valve assembly is dirty or worn out and needs cleaned/replaced. This is a job that should be done by an authorized Aerus Electrolux service tech. It's most commonly caused by use of "made-to-fit Electrolux" bags, rather than the genuine bags made by Home Solutions.

2. If the vacuum keeps running after detaching hose and placing hand over in port, then check the hose. Drop a coin or similar small item through the hose. If it doesn't go through, there's a clog. It will probably be at the bend of the handle. Plug hose into exhaust port and turn vacuum on. Make sure the other end of the hose is in a bag to catch the dirt and stuff coming out. If you have problems, it's easily removed by a service tech.

Belt Keeps Coming Off

Replace the belt with afresh, proper sized one. Yours is stretched. It will be shiny on the underside. hoover belts are meant to fit snug. Check the bearings on the end of the brush roll to remove dirt and thread. The proper belt will need to be stretched into place using the brush for leverage. Likely that your low carpet is more dense causing enough drag to throw the stretched belt.

My vacuum will not pick up even fuzz on the carpet

If the suction is strong through the hose and its still not picking up, then something is definately clogged despite the strong suction and rolle brush. Check all inspection tubes including the main dirt channel behind the roller brush. You may find something that keeps getting in the way when dirt or hair is trying to bypass through.

U5180-910 vacuum shuts off on own

I had same problem. Turned out to be the filter that sits above the waste cannister. Remove the waste cannister. There is a little orange lever that releases the filter. It was caked with dirt not allowing any air flow causing the motor to overheat.

This foam filter gets dirty pretty fast.

Same Shut Off Problem as Hamster71

The part that you call the particle size sensetivity adjuster is bad. There are 2 seals in the assembly, the lower seal is slipping out of place because the plastic lip which keeps it in place is broken. Split housings and replace part. This machine is alot of work to take appart and get back together correctly. Might want to bring to local vac shop. good luck.
