Question about Electrolux EL6988EZX Oxygen Canister Vacuum Cleaner

1 Answer

Power Head is not getting power

The power to the powerhead needs to be reset but, this model does not have an external reset button. The vacuum still turns on and has plenty of suction. However, the head part is not getting power after I accidently got a sock stuck in the brush. I check the belt and it is fine. You can also feel the suction coming thru but, the roller brush does not turn automatically nor do the lights turn on

Why won't my Hoover Platinum turn on?

Check and see if there is a reset button for the vacuum head this trips sometime to protect the head motor. Also if the roller heads bind they can snap the belt if it is belt driven. If it is direct drive then I would look for the trip or reset button.

Living Air Model # XL15

I called with this problem, and after explaining that I did everything I was supposed to do, including vacuuming the inside and outside, cleaning the wire with at LEAST 20 up & down strokes, and cleaning the plates with hot sudsy water, allowing 24 hours to dry and the holding down the power button to reset the unit for 10 seconds; the near-English speaking tech asked me if I had done each step (individually) that I JUST TOLD HER I did. She asked me if I had the original store receipt (which I couldn't find at the time I was on the phone) and then told me that they would send me another one for $29.95 freight plus I would have to pay for return shipping of the original (2-month-old) unit. At this rate of exchange I could just buy another brand new one in less than a year.

Red Light indicator on

I have a Bionaire tower air filter model BAP1700 that I bought from Costco. The filter check LED came on recently after 5 months of use. After cleaning the Permatech filters, I tried every remedy on this website including following the instructions that say push power button for 2 secs. Nothing worked. Then I noticed a tiny hole on the control panel in front of clean filter LED; I pushed a paper clip pin into that hole, felt a click, held it down and 2 secs later, LED went out. Success!

Replace Filter Indicator Will Not Turn Off

I owned the previous model of the same unit with the hole for the paperclip. But it wore out and I replaced it with the HAP422 and found the same issue; no hole to "reset" the light. I was just fooling with it and determined that "some" switch would reset it and finally held the power on button on for a few seconds, after which, the red light flashed and then went out. Problem solved. BUT THERE IS NOT ONE WORD IN THE MANUAL TO TELL YOU THIS! WHY NOT?
