Having problems with your Electrolux Lux 5500 Canister Vacuum ?

How do I repair my Electrolux Lux 9000 cannister electrical cord retraction? It was pulled out as far as it would go and now it doesn't retract.


Answers :

First, try standing vacuum on it's back end. Gently pull on cord and release. Try this a few times.
\015\012If this doesn't work, you'll need to take it to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store and let the service tech repair it. Although it's relatively easy to disassemble, reassembling correctly is trickier. I've had several machines come into the shop disassembled because the owner couldn't figure out how to put it together again.
\015\012Also, when taking the cord rewinder apart, there's a risk of breaking tabs that hold it together.

I have an Electrolux Oxygen 3 vacuum I purchased rebuilt. After 1 month the power stopped working. I took it into Electrolux Authorized repair dealer, which was a horrible experience. When we received it back it was clearly not as powerful as before. Does anyone have any suggestions on what the problem may be? I would rather fix it myself than take it back to them. The next repair center is too far away. I am pretty good with fixing things, just needs some guidance. I think the repair center rep

Electrolux 5500 The cord on my vacuum cleaner won't retrack. What is the trick to get the back end off the vacuum cleaner? It looks like it was pulled out too far.


Depends on which model you have, but most of them you take off the center section, then you cab get to the 2 screws on top , and there is a screw on the bottom, then the back end will pull off. But I wouldn't try taking the cord reel apart, if that ... Electrolux Lux 5500 Canister Vacuum

I have an electrolux genesis upright vacuum that I bought used about 8 years ago. It has been A great vacuum the best I ever had. I thought the belt had come off so I took it in for repair. They called today and said that the brush rotor motor was bad and it would be around 148.00 dollars to repair. My question is could I buy the part and have my husband replace it or would it be too complicated. Can you still buy an electrolux vacuum comparable to this one and how much are they. I love this vac

I have a remote Hunter Ceiling Fan w/ remote 1-2-3 fan speed buttons and one on/off/dimmer light button. Model Number CP-9110R. It only has one pull string and it is for the light. I would like convert the light to work off of a simple wall on/off switch and the fan to be controlled by a 3-speed pull string. Can I by-pass all the sensors and make it work?


I see noone has answered so I will.Yes,it could be done,but if there is not a conversion kit for your fan,it would not be wise to do it.For starters,all of the things required would probably cost at least $15.Also,there is at least one tool you would ... Vacuums

I am trying to disassemble a electrolux 2100. I have looked at instructions given by Chemist 1961 and others. On the side, I have removed the rubber covers over the plastic rails but I can't remove the plastic rails that hold the rubber covers on. If I am right, these rails should just slide right out and the outer casing should come part.....or am I doing something wrong. I have pulled and pulled the rails and they don't budge. The rear end won't pop off. Help!


There's a tab at the back of the rail that needs to be released. Turn the vacuum on it's side, slip the tip of a standard screwdrive into the space between the rail and the back of the vacuum, and tap lightly with a hammer. Tap toward the front of ... Electrolux Lux 5500 Canister Vacuum

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

You will probably have to replace the cord winding mechanism. I have never had any luck trying to repair one.

I was changing a light bulb with one of those metal extension rods that unscrew and screw back in the replacement bulbs. It evidently didn't seat correctly and pulled off the bulb and created a quick "poof" type electrical short. I have switched out that bad bulb with a new one and can't get either the fan or lights to work. There doesn't appear to be a reset switch. I also swirched out the wall switch to see if that would make a difference and it does not. Any thoughts or ideas would be appreci

My FIL purchased an Electrolux bagless canister vacuum model EL5 76501 last year. When I tried to use it today, the hose keeps pulling out of the power brush whenever I pull it towards me. it doesn't seem like anything has broken off. The only thing I noticed was that the rubber ring washer seems to be flattened. Could it be something that simple or do you think some part has fallen off and gone missing? Regards, Craig Somersett
