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

Power head stops and starts

\015 I have an Electrolux Oxygen model REL6988. \302\240The power head stops and starts. \302\240I stops when I pull towards me and will start again when pushing. I can't seem to get it to do it by holding the handle and the head and wiggling the tube between the two. \302\240What do you think is the problem and how can I repair it?\015\012\015\012Thanks\015\012Bruce\015

Answers :

The problem is with the connection between the flexible hose and the handle - there is a joint between the two that allows the flexible hose to rotate in the handle and the electrical connection here is not great!

\015\012If the head stops working you should rotate the flexible hose at this joint (i.e. where it joins the handle) and you will see that the head unit will start to work again.

\015\012Not sure what a long-term solution would be - probably to clean this connection, grease it again with white lithium grease, and perhaps to bend the spring connection here so that it makes a reliable connection again.
Sounds like there is definately something stuck inside it. You;ll need to dismantle the floor head carefully using a screwdriver. Make sure your machine is switched off though if it is a power head and not an air turbine turbo head. Once inside check the main roller brush as well as the side caps as these can become clogged. Also check the main dirt channel leading to the pipes of the vacuum. \015\012\015\012\015\012

The power head of my DC 21 keeps cutting off as soon as I start moving the hose around. The only way to get it going again is to step on the main switch on the canister, then the whole cycle of off and on starts again. I have replaced the entire power head and tested the continuity of all the wires in the hose and they are good. The repair shop says the PCB is bad but can not get one. What can I do ?

For some reason, our shark steam mop stop working. Usually after I plug the steam mop, the power light would light up then you would hear & see steam coming out of the mop's head but all of a sudden no power light would go on and no steam would come out. I can still use the mop, cause water from the tank still is able to flow down to the head. It's just that I'd have to use it like an ordinary mop not as the steam mop I liked. Pls help!!!
