Having problems with your Electrolux Epic 3500 Vacuum ?

No power, will not turn on. Checked switch on the handle, no burned or other obvious problem. Pulled handle from body and checked the three electrical poles, not burned or dirty. It is an Electrolux 3500 sr epic. Thank you Lucian


Answers :

Does the plug shaped light on the top come on? If so, the vacuum is getting power, so another problem exists.

I have just purchased two (2) Electrolux Nimble vacuum cleaners. Not one, but both, straight out of the box, the beater bars will not run. It turns on, select carpet, and lower the handle, the red light to check beater bar/or filter lights up. You can reset the light by unplugging the unit, then plugging it back in, but with same results. Now the kicker, if you take out the handle, select carpet, lower the body by the carry handle, it will run and operate correctly, however, as soon as you r

My dyson DC05 has been playing up for a while. The motorhead would start fine with green light on and after a few minutes would stop and light would go green. then the power would go on and off - seemed to only work when I had the handle a certain way. Now no power at all. is there a way that I can check if its the power in the handle section as thats the only way you can turn this machine on? Thanks in advance

I have the Kenmore Model 116.36722600 Vacuum; while cleaning the carpets the vacuum all of the sudden stop working; I didn't smell anything burning; it was almost like someone unplugged it. I checked the rollers and I can move it forward and backwards with no problem. Do you think the motor just burned out? Does this vacuum have a fuse that I can reuse? I love this vacuum and would hate to toss it. thank you

Vorwerk VK121 vacuum cleaner - smell of burning from housing enclosing motor. How do I get into the housing to inspect the motor? After tilting the bag sideways, there are two screws holding the housing visible, but there seems to be a thrid fixing inside the point where the handle shaft is attached - is the handle simply clipped in place? Thanks


Yes the handle is clipped in place and should come out when the button in front is pushed. Remove the screws you wrote about. After that the puzzle begins. At the bottom of the vacuum where the head is attached, remove the head by pressing the but ... Vacuums

I have an Electrolux Epci 3500 Sr upright vacuum cleaner ... 100 percent positive switch is shot and one of the wires inside is fried but before buying a new handle assembly online how do I check the motor to make sure it's not fried?


The switch is replaceable, so you don't need to replace the complete handle assembly. I've got a 3500 that I replaced the switch on and it works great now. You can get a new switch at the local Aerus Electrolux store. To find the nearest store, ju ... Electrolux Epic 3500 Vacuum

I have an electrolux Enviro multi steamer which I was using this morning. I turned the steamer off for approximately 1 1/2 to do some shopping, and when I turned it on again, the steamer light turned on (green light) and then I waited for the orange light to go on, which too a while. When the orange light does turn on, there is no steam when you press the yellow button on the handle. I have checked for water, and the steamer is full, I have turned it on and off several times just in case that wi

My dyson DC17 will not turn on unless the handle is pulled back.(into the vacuuming position) The attachment hose will not work at all (0 suction thru it). I've checked the hose and made sure there is no obstruction. Any ideas?


Not sure if I can help, but I'll try. The DC17 has two motors: the vacuum motor and a separate motor for the brush bar. It is normal that the brush motor works only when the handle is pulled back in the vacuuming position - that's the way it's made. ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

My Oreck XL was working fine, then when I vacuumed a shag rug is started smoking and smelled like something is burning. (I changed the bag, checked for clogs--none found, and roller brush is turning. It has a metal handle.) Now I am afraid to use it.


Even though the brush is spinning, the belt is probably worn out and stretched. when you vacuum the shag carpet, it puts more drag on the brush. try running it on a shorter carpet or hard floor for a few minutes. if it doesn't smoke, then you know i ... Oreck XL2000 Bagged Upright Vacuum
