Having problems with your Electrolux C101 Bagged Canister Vacuum ?

The vacum will run until the hose is inserted and then the motor shuts off. The vacum switch must be hooked up incorrectly. Do you have a schematic?


Answers :

Before trying to take it apart, check the hose for a blockage. Disconnect the hose at both ends, drop a coin in one end, lift that end of hose allowing coin to drop through. If it doesn't come through, there's a clog. You should be able to clear it by plugging the hose into the exhaust port of the vacuum, holding the other end to the in port, and turning on.
\015\012Another possible problem is a dirty afterfilter. Remove the air diffuser/tool holder on the back of the vacuum. If the filter is dirty, it blocks the air flow and the vacuum will shut off due to overheating. Remove it, connect the hose, and turn on the vacuum.

Power nozzle on E-series won't start when cold unless the red 'reset' button is pressed multiple times while also holding the trigger to 'warm it up'...this is w/the power nozzle off the floor - no restriction on it turning. Once it's been running and then turned off the button must be pressed w/the trigger to get it to run - again w/the nozzle off the floor. It also seems to shut off too easily while vacuuming. I replaced the motor,which didn't fix it. Is the reset switch next on my list? T

I have a hoover windtunnel upright vacuum, It will not shut off and I have to unplug it to do so. If I take apart the upper handle and manually flip the internal switch it works just fine, only when using the external switch on the handle, wont shut off.

I wonder if there is a simple circuit breaker switch somewhere on the vacuum that I could switch without going to a repair shop?

My electrolux ambassador power wand quit working. I replaced the switch that shuts it off when the roller stops, but it wasn't the problem. The on/off switch is fine, the motor is fine.

We can't find any screws to undo that would open it up in order to follow the wires deep into the canister. We've bypa

I was vacuming with the hose only with my kirby generation 3 vacum and it suddenly made a different sound and smelled strong of burning. I immediately shut it off and unplugged it. It IS about 30 yrs old. Do you think it is worth taking in to pay someone to look at it or it just bit the dust?


It might be the belt and if it is it will be a sipmle fix. If it isn't I think It's time to bite the dust and buy new. You won't believe what you old vacuum was not sucking up and for what it would cost to repair vs buying new it would be about the s ... Vacuums
