Answers :

It sounds like you have a broken wire in your hose or in the wire going to your power nozzel (carpet sweeper).If not that, it could be in the insulator ( the part you plug the hose in the machine). Either way, you'll have to take it to your repair shop.
There are several sets of contacts, most commonly, the wand cracks below the hose handle and a short develops between the wand and the hose. Look there first for burned or worn contacts Test by gently twisting or wiggling this area. Contacts must be replaced in pairs if burned, replace both male and female component,ie handle conatcts and wand cord. On this unit the upper wand tube and hose handle often wera with age allowing slippage and the conatcts in turn will bun. If tehr is "in and out" play the metal inner tube and hose hand grip must also be replaced.
Second the hose handle has its own contact rings inside underneath the hand grip. Test this area by holding the handle and rotating or wiggling the hose from behind the handle.
Third , there are two contacts in the front door of the vac itself. Test this are by holding the vac body and gently wiggling and twisting the hose in front of the vac door about 6"

When running the 2100 Electrolux vacuum, it is stopping and starting when pulling or pushing the floor attachment. Seems like the connection at the top of the handle is a little loose or the electric tabs are loose where the hose connects. Any ideas?


Other option is that on the hose end of the electrical connection, you can use an awl on the electrical connections to bend them in slightly so they make good contact when they are automatically plugged in when you connect the wands.

I have a nearly 9 year old Electrolux Excellio Z5228 vacuum cleaner. It has recently started cutting out during operation. I cleaned the micro filter (between bag & motor) via brush & hitting against wall & seems / looks quite clean.

Good evening, I have a Xio Z1010 electrolux vaacum cleaner and I hope you'll be able to give me some advice. The vacuum cannot be started. Last time it started for a few seconds and stopped suddenly. Something similar happened long time ago but that was due to overheating. Once cooled down in few hours it would start again. It is not the case now after 24 hours. Could you give me any idea what could be the reason? Your help would be much appreciated. Adorian

I have a model B1500 vacuum. The vacuum would lug and stop and start if I lifted it off the rug. I changed the belt to the beater bar. That didn't help. I also noticed that the connection between the hose and wand heats up. How can I fix it?


I'm not exactly sure what make of vacuum this is -- a number of companies make a model b1500, so this may be a bit general. If the vacuum has an adjustment for the height of the carpet pile and you have it set too low, it will overload the brush and ... Vacuums

My Miele s558 Silver moon vacuum just stops suddenly while vacuuming. I can start it again using the button on the handle of the hose. It is erratic, doesn't SEEM to be due to overheating. I read online that this may mean it need a new starter switch. What do you think?

The brush roller stops turning and I can smell the belt burning, then it will catch and start working normal. I looked under the plate to check the belts and they looked okay and no hang ups of string or anything. The only thing that seemed weird was that the smaller belt that actually attaches and turns the roller is a bit loose. The larger belt is tight but looks like its the one that is burning and causing the smell.


Better to replace both belts the smaller one is stretched out thats whyits slipping ,be sure to clean the old rubber off the motor shaft before replacing the belts.it will cause the new belts to run unevevly and go bad before their time ...
