Having problems with your Electrolux EL7020A Oxygen 3 Ultra Canister Vacuum Cleaner Bagged Vacuum ?

3 year old Electrolux Oxygen 3 will not turn on.

Answers :

I had a situation where the main unit turned on and kept flashing its lights but I was unable to start it by pressing the buttons on the hose.
Turned out, the switch assembly in the handle was waterlogged. It is a two-wire resistance switch, so it is sensitive to water. It works again after I've cleaned the switch.
For a quick test, you can unscrew the contact panel at the back end of the hose and plug it in (you'll have to keep pressure on the panel to make sure it stays in contact). If placing a short between the black and the white wire starts the motor but buttons on the handle don't work it means the switch is contaminated. The switch is assembled using sticky glue, so it is possible to open it. Warming it with a hair dryer can help.
You may need to change the hose, since that is where the switch is located:

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

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

The brush on my Electrolux Ambassador III vacum stops turning after vacuming for only a few minutes every time I use it. The power nozzel is less than a year old and except for the brush not wanting to turn, it operates just fine. Any suggestions on how to fix the problem?

Our unit is 7024A Electrolux Oxygen 3 - it seems to work great but suddenly, the head or 'power brush' or whatever it is called - has died. I checked by removing the hose and plugging it directly into the body, but it is still dead. Without that motorized head working, the vacuum is useless. Is it worth replacing? The unit is only about 1 year old and has seen light use only. Very frustrating, since it was the most expensive unit in the store:(

My vacuum cleaner will run for a few minutes and then shuts off. The plug light on the panel blinks. I thought the motor was shut, but after a long time it will turn on again, but again, only for a few minutes and then shuts off again. Any ideas? I bought an Oxygen Ultra a few years ago, but I don't like it nearly as much as the old Epic.

My central vac unit does not turn off even when hose is disconnected. I have to unplug the motor unit in the garage to shut it off. What do you think the problem is? It is a 7 year old Electrolux

Possibly the power module. Or a short in the wiring. Take it to the local Aerus Electrolux store and have it checked by a service tech to be sure. The pm is a lot less expensive to replace than a whole cv. ... Electrolux Central Vacuum

I cannot charge my two year old electrolux pronto. I purchased a brand new hand held vacuum for it, but even the new one does not charge. When I plug in the cord nothing happens. If I turn on either the long handle or the portable unit within the long unit, the blue charging light comes on for a few seconds, then out. This tells me that the circuit is intact without a broken wire somewhere. I took it all apart carefully and could see nothing broken or out of place. On re-constructing it, it

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

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 3 year old NuTone CV 353W central vac system and recently the switch on the hose handle does not turn the system on from any outlet in the house. I have to plug the hose into the outlet and then turn the unit on from the switch on the cannister. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

A great way to check if your switch in the hose is bad would be to turn the hose sideways in the inlet. If the unit turns on you most likely need a new switch. ... Broan-NuTone CV450 Central Bagged Central System Vacuum

Oreck Upright Hi Redev, I'm not sure what model I have (about 6 years old...upright, looks like the one in the picture). I changed the belt (which was torn) and then the next time I used it, it cut off on me. Now if won't turn on at all. (I turn the switch on and off and nothing happens as if it is not plugged in but it is!). I noticed at the top where the power cord enters the handle, it is all frayed. Could the electrical wires have detached? Anything you think I should check before taking it

The cord could be bad and will ahve to be replaced. It would have to have a problem inside the handle or down by the motor. ... Oreck XL2600 Vacuum

The belt broke and after putting on new belt I dicscovered the cylinder with the brushes attached wasn't turning. After I finally got the cylinder to turn it makes a very very loud noise and also now it doesn't pick up the dirt. The vacuum is less than a year old.

Check the cylinder with brushes does not have hair or carpet fibers causing it to bind. With the belt removed the brush should turn freely and fairly easy. The original belt probably broke because of this. You may have to fully dis-assemble the head ... Dirt Devil Vacuums
