Having problems with your Electrolux Central Vacuum ?

Electrolux Central Vacuum won't turn off

\015 Unit will stop running only if I trip the circuit breaker.\015

Answers :

There is a relay board on the unit (where the dirt goes) There are two small wires that connect and usually a switch near by. This switch has an Auto and Manual setting. If set to manual the unit will run all the time or until set back to Auto. If it is set to Auto and is still running, unplig the two small wires. They are sometimes on screw terminals behind a round plactic cover. It does not matter which terminal the wires go back on just one on each.

\015\012If the unit turns off the problem is in the wire running to each valve or a paper clip is shorting across the pins of a wall outlet. (something like this).
\015\012
\015\012If the unit does not turn off once the wires are removed, the relay in the unit is stuck closed and will need to be replaced. Time to call a pro unless you have good electrical skills.

I was using my easy flow central vacuum, and shut it off. When I went to start it up again 5 min later, it would not turn on. I emptied out the filter, and reset the switch. When the reset button was pushed, it started up the vacuum, but the vacuum was not turned on in the house. It can only be turned on from in the garage and not on the actual hose. What is going on?

I have a Eureka Upright vacuum (4800 Series). When I try to start it by turning the switch on, it wont. For few days, I was able to get around this problem by repeatedly turning the switch on and off until it turned on but that does not work any more. Could it be something related to the switch it self or the power cable. My wife mentioned that one of my kids might have pulled the power cable too hard (at the back of the vacuum). Any help to solve this problem will be very much appreciated. Tha

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
