Answers :

NO the new vacuum will last you like 5 years and if you get the old electrolux it will last a long time, but the vacuum should be fine it should only need a new bag and wiped down with a damp cloth
New is not always better. Parts are cheply manufactured out of plastic or weak materials and tend to break easily. Vacuums now are mostly plastic and many pieces just snap together. Getting them apart is very trickey. Taking it to a repair shop is shockingly expensive, but the actual work is quite simple once you crack the code of how to get the thing opened up to do the repair.

My electrolux oxygen vacuum cleaner shut off and will not turn back on. It's less than a year old, but I bought it off Craig's list--they were the orginal owner and they said they bought it in May of 2008. I've only used it a few times and it worked fine except for the last time when it suddenly just shut off. I thought maybe it had come unplugged and I didn't really worry about it because I was finished vacuuming. But, I went to use it tonight and it would not turn on at all--no lights, nothing

I have an Electrolux LITE upright carpet cleaner - about 15 years old. Suddenly last night when using it, from the normal motor (whooshing) sound, the motor suddenly went very slow and with a slight grinding sound. The brushes are now just turning round very slowly and areobviously not picking up anything. Has the motor gone or is this repairable, or should I just get a new cleaner? I have tried to open the machine from the bottom to see if anything is obviously wrong, but it looks complicated a

Clogged Hose 8 Year old Electrolux Centralux Vacume Cleaner has a clogged hose. Seems something is lodged in the middle of the hose - about half way down. I have tried a "plumbers snake" with no luck, except to clean out some "lint Balls" bot not the obstruction that seems to be like a "nail or stick".

Hi, this sounds like you have something stuck quite firmly in the hose!! If you use a good sturdy stick then you should be able to move the object without any damage to the hose. Check along the outside of the hose first just incase something has pus ... Electrolux Centralux Vacuum

It's an old cannister electrolux vacuum cleaner and it's not worth to have it serviced. The motor is noisy it appears to be obstructed but I can't open it since I don't see any screws. Would you please tell me how to do it. Thanks Ray

You will need to peel the soft rubber bumpers away from the side, like pealing a banana. Grip the bumper tabs with needle nose pliers from the bag area with door open. Underneath will be a set of locking keys which slide forward ONLY out the front o ... Electrolux Guardian Bagged Canister Vacuum

I have a Electrolux Epic 6500 SR canister vacum cleaner. It is nine years old and for the past few weeks it has started shutting off for no apparent reason.The symbol for bag change lights up and it cuts off, but even after I have put a new bag in, it still does the same thing. Do you have any suggestions? There is a little button or switch that the top of the bag fits on. Do you think it could be the problem?

Your machine is probably clogged, look through the wands, look in the bottom attachment, to see if there is anything stuck there. You can also drop a marble through the hose itself to see if anything is stuck there as well. To unclog the hose try hol ... Electrolux Harmony Canister Vacuum - EL6985 Vacuum

Hello, My Electrolux Renaissance is about 12 years old. It worked great for years, but now it keeps turning itself off...about every 15 seconds or so. The bag was just changed recently, too. Is there an easy, (and cheap) fix or should I start shopping for a new one?? Thanks!

Odds are you have an obstruction somewhere. Check all of the hoses and the power head to ensure that there is nothing blocking your airflow. \015\012\015\012Also note that if it keeps popping the front bag door open, that's usually indica ... Electrolux Vacuums

Low suction I have an Electrolux central vac that is approx. 11 yrs old. the suction is very low. this started about 1 week ago. I checked the hose and it is clear. I also went into the attic and checked the pipes(as far as I could see them) and they appeared to be intact.

1) Have you checked the filter? If it is clogged your suction will be low. Also, you could have a pipe loose where you can't see. Make sure that you can get a coin to go all the way through the hose. make sure the suction motor ( the unit ) is coming ... Electrolux Central Vacuum
