Having problems with your Electrolux Centralux Vacuum ?

Unit will not turn off, unless unplugged

\015 Worked fine, used it on one of my wall outlets, unplugged it, and it kept on running, replaced the outlet, did not help\015

Answers :

This sounds like a relay sticking on the control board inside the unit. The only other thing I've seen cause this, would be a short in your low voltage wiring. I had a service call where the wires were laid across the top of metal studs and the insulation had been damaged to the point that the wires would short out on the stud. To be sure it's not something in your wiring, disconnect the low voltage wires from the unit while it's "stuck" running. If it continues to run, then have your control board replaced. This is a somewhat common problem on these units. Good Luck!

Electrolux Centralux I have a Electrolux Centralux. When I plug the hose in at one of the wall outlets the motor will not start. If I go to the motor and slap the unit it will start.....then...it will not stop unless I unplug the power cord to the motor. If I plug the power cord back in, the unit will not restart until I slap the motor unit again. The unit has only been used 20 - 30 times. Any suggestions?? Thanks, Bruce

I have a Kenmore Progressive upright model 216-37100800. It is only around 1.5 years old. My wife said that one day after she plugged it and turned it on, it whirred up but then shut off. Since then it will not start. I have noticed that right after I plug it in, if I try to turn it on, the first yellow light in the series of dirt sensor lights turns on then shuts off. After that the light will not light up on pressing the power button, unless I unplug it and plug it back in again. I have seen o

I have a Eureka Central Vac CV1601b. The motor does not stop unless the Unit is unplug from the electrical outlet. Any Idea?.I removed the control unit to check if there was disconnected wires or burnt wires. Everything look normal. The circuit board does not show area that overheated. There seem to be 2 relays. Likely one of the two went bad. What do you think.

My brand-new Hoover Windtunnel T-Series Pet Rewind Bagless vac simply shut off while I was using it and now I can't get it to turn back on. I've emptied the dirt collection bin and let the unit sit unplugged for 30 minutes to reset the Thermal Protector as per the manual. I've even tried a few different outlets just in case a fuse got tripped, but the vac still won't turn on. What happened? Do I need to return this vac to the store? I just bought it 5 hours ago.
