Answers :

This is often caused by a failure of a fuse on the Sumo board, or\015\012occasionally by a failure of the cord reel. Here are some instructions on how to check these things as a\015\012response to a different thread, but I will repost them here:
\015\012
\015\012--
\015\012There is a board in the back (called the "SUMO board") which has a fuse\015\012hardwired to it. Most of the "no go" problems with this machine are\015\012related to this.

In\015\012order to check it, you'll want to take a thin flat-head screwdriver,\015\012and gently pry up the silver panel on the top of the machine. The\015\012easiest place to do this is on the side of the panel, as far toward the\015\012rear of the machine as possible.

You will then need to remove\015\012the 2 Torx screws on the rear panel, and the top body of the machine\015\012should then be able to be removed. There are two clips in the bag\015\012chamber, directly under the back portion of the bag compartment lid,\015\012which can be pressed in to facilitate removal of the back cover.

The\015\012sumo board will be sitting directly on the top of the machine, and the\015\012fuse in question will be on the right if you are looking at it from the\015\012rear of the machine. Unfortunately, if the fuse is blown, you will have\015\012to replace the entire circuit board. (Unless you feel very comfortable\015\012with soldering a new fuse onto it, which I do not recommend for safety\015\012reasons.)

You can also check continuity of the cord reel from\015\012here. On the right hand side of the board are two spade terminals\015\012leading to wires running down into the cord reel assembly. One black,\015\012one white. Checking the continuity between these terminals and the ends\015\012of the power supply cord will allow you to determine if the cord reel\015\012is providing power to the machine.

Accessing the cord reel\015\012will require you to remove the six Torx screws holding the main body to\015\012the base. Two of these are on the rear of the machine, and are very\015\012deep inside; so you will require a very long-shanked Torx driver to get\015\012at these. Two more are inside the bag chamber at the rear, and the\015\012other two are on the front handle assembly. This will allow you to lift\015\012the main body away from the base, and if you are replacing the cord\015\012reel you can pull the wires from the spade terminals and the socket on\015\012the sumo board, and feed them back down into the cord reel chamber to\015\012remove the old cord reel.

Reassembly is simply a reverse of\015\012the previous. Beware, however: getting the cord reel to align is\015\012something of a chore, so make sure that you have the retraction system\015\012functioning before you put the whole thing back together, or you'll be\015\012bummed when you finish reassembly and the cord won't retract.

Hooked everything up per directions. I plugged it in to the closest electrical outlet and nothing happened. The lights did not light up, the connected wall control and sensors leds do not light up. It appears the unit doesn't have power. The electrical outlet socket is fine as everything else I plug into it works fine. I have tried every other electrical outlet available. The unit won't power on from any outlet, and all of those outlets run other things, like power tools an refrigerators

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.
