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

I fear the motor has failed on my Electrolux Oxygen EL6988D. Just six months after the warranty expired, I was vacuuming when it suddenly stopped. There was no blockage in the tube and it wasn't working hard or long . . . it just stopped. I looked around the Internet and it appeared that many similar Electrolux units have a fuse. I hoped my problem might just be a blown fuse, so I took the machine apart. There are two small printed circuit boards, but no fuse. There is an in-line

Hi,

\015\012I don't think you need a new motor, but please stop testing the machine with live power. It's dangerous and unnecessary. Your tests indicate to me that the motor is fine and your thermal-fuse - I think this is what you referred to as "thermatrol" is blown. I assume you used an ohm-meter to test the continuity across the brushes? If so, and the reading was 0 ohms accross the brushes, then your motor is fine. Also, the 120v reading at the motor terminals with the power on shows that you are getting power to the motor. The reason there is no continuity at the motor terminals is because this circuit is routed through the "thermatrol". If the thermatrol is open-circuit, i.e. blown there will be no continuity here.

\015\012If you need parts, I can probably help you find a supplier, but let's establish which parts need replacing first! Please confirm the resistance readings from the brushes and we'll go from there, but no more live testing please, particularly the 120v A/C direct to the motor from the wall socket!

Shopvac 90L400 quit working (4 years old). Thought the switch was bad but not the problem. I read that there is a fuse link in the motor that frequently burns up. I tried to take motor apart but not sure of the process. I was able to get to the motor but cannot pull it out of the armature. It appears I have to take the aluminum blower unit off the shaft (it appears to be pressed on with a retaining washer). Do I have to take it off to pull the shaft and motor assembly out? Is that where the fuse

RE: Goldstar dehumidifier: Model #DH404EY6, S/N 602TAQP05412 My unit is ~4 yr. old, has worked w/o problems until now. It will no longer auto. turn on. When I manually turn it on, the motor turns on, and then immediately shuts off, and "01" appears on the LED screen for humidity level setpoint. Is this an error code, and what does it mean?

My filter queen majestic quit working. I opened up the unit to see what was wrong and I did not immediately notice anything wrong. Upon furter examination I noticed one of the traces on the printed circuit card was burnt. I used a soldering iron to "bridge the trace and it appeared to fix the problem for a while. Now it has stopped working again, and when I jumper the trace to run the motor it seems to work. Should I just replace the card? Or is there a more serious problem with too much current


I recommend replacing the card. Soldering involves the risk of further damaging the card, so it would be useless anyway. Why waste valuable time?\015\012There is a possibility of the motor overheating, generally due to a blockage in the airfl ... Filter Queen Majestic Canister Vacuum

I just bought a Hoover Platinum Collection MaxExtract Carpet Cleaner (Model No. F8100900). This is the first time I've used it and got half way through one room and the unit cut off and has no power at all. No lights anywhere. On/Off button is inoperable. I checked the outlet and it's still operating so it's not a circuit breaker issue. The problem appears to be with the machine. Has anyone heard of this happening this quickly? Is there a reset button on the machine>

On-off switch My problem is finding a source for an on-off switch for an electrolux vacuum sweeper model 2100. I have replaced the broken toggle and now the sweeper turns on but only as long as the outside button is depressed. It appears that the on-off switch itself is broken as the switch does not ''hold'' when the toggle is activated. It seems to return to it's ''off'' setting as soon as the toggle is released. What ''holds'' the switch in its ''on'' position? Does it depend only on the on-

This is not an electrolux problem, but I am hoping one of the experts can answer the question. I have a Sears air compressor that suddenly stopped working. After looking at how the motor case is put together, it appeared that it would essentially have to be destroyed to get it apart and into the motor. I received a new compressor for my birthday so I decided to tear into the old one to do some diagnosis. After getting into the case where I could see the motor/pump, I have discovered the prob
