TAKE OFF THE HOSE AND PUT YOUR HAND OVER THE OPENING. IF THE SUCTION IS STRONG YOU NEED A NEW HOSE. I JUST REPLACED THE HOSE ON MY 28 YR. OLD OLYMPIA ONE AND THE SUCTION IS AS IF IT WERE BRAND NEW.

I am vacuuming spackle dust from sanding walls and my electrolux canister continues to open. What should I do?


Fine dust from sparkle will clog a bag or filter very quickly even though the bag is not full or even close to full. The air can't pass through the bag so it is popping the door open. Drywall dust can ruin a vacuum motor very quickly. I use a shop vac style vacuum with a cartridge filter that still clogged up after just a few minutes of vacuuming the dust but I can take the filter outside and hit it against something and use a small soft brush to clean it.

Have a 6500 epic electrolux canister vac shuts off if you restrict the hose new bag not completly


Shake the bag if you've been cleaning up "fine" carpet freshener powder, drywall dust or anything extra fine as it clogs the pours of the bag and the machine stops thinking the bag is full. If this doesn't work, you'll have to have the control valve on top cleaned or replaced to correct the issue. Hope that helps!

Stopped working, lights work, shows full light when not full.


Remove the bag and put in a fresh bag. Then rotate the dial on top of the vac to the middle position. When cleaning fine dust the vac will shut off before the bag is full as it is sensing a clogged bag and cannot sense proper air flow through the bag. If this persists the sensor under teh top dial may be damaged and need to be replaced

Electrolux Pronto 2-in-1: Looking for a part


There is no replacement for the dust container in these units. You would have to get an entire handvac which costs more then a full unit.

Electrolux Z8240 model vacuum cleaner flashing red & blue 1 every 6 seconds. What could be wrong with it


Inside ,the dust collection container, there at the far end is a white cone shape (another filter). I think you may find this covered in lint etc and if you reach in with your hand you can just pull the stuff off. Happened to me around the two month mark and I THINK, so far, so good. My machine is now not switching off and flashing lights at me and the suction is back to fabulous. Found this information on another obsure website. You would think electrolux would mention it in their "Troubleshooting Guide" GOOD LUCK

Hello,
I recently bought a house with an older Electrolux Central Vac system. I'm unfamiliar with them, so I'm not sure how to deal with this: I cleaned up some mortar dust with it, and noticed not too long after that when I went into the garage, there was a fog of dust. The hose from the unit is venting into the garage. Is this normal? I have since used it for everyday household cleaning and each time I go back to the garage to a cloud of dust. Is there anything I can do? Thanks


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It sounds to me that the unit you have may have to be vented outside as I am not familiar with this particular unit, or it could very well be that it is missing a filter or the filter you have inside already is shot and is in need of replacement or on some central vacs there are paper filter that go over the cloth type filter. Again, I am not familiar with this older unit but feel free to contact the Electrolux Factory or Manufacturer and give them the model # and the serial # for the unit and they will have a breakdown of if it should be vented and what type of filtration it should be using. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
