Having problems with your Electrolux Lux 5500 Canister Vacuum ?

Electrolux Super J model, bag light stays on and vacuum will not run.


Answers :

Have you checked the screen filter below the bag? This sometimes gets clogged with fuzz and whatnot, resulting in the vacuum shutting off. To clean it simply remove the bag and use a pick or similar item.
\015\012A clogged hose will also result in the same problem. Try running without the hose. If the vacuum runs without the hose a blockage in the hose is a probability. However there could be a clog in the power nozzle above the brush, as well. Check the suction at the end of the hose. If very little there's a good possibility this is the problem. Double check by dropping coin in one end and allowing to drop through. If it doesn't there's a clog. It can usually be cleared by plugging the hose into the exhaust port and turning the machine on. Be sure the other end is inside a large plastic bag.
\015\012Visually check wands to ensure they're clear. If not, push clog out with a broom stick.

Hi there, I have an excellent Electrolux (but older) Diplomat LX model which stops when the bag is supposedly full. It''s not full however, but merely 1/4 to 1/3 full. I'd like to reduce the "sensitivity" of the sensor or turn it off altogether. I don't run my vacuum with a full bag, but there's a limit. Please tell me how to address this problem. Thanks very much.

First, if it runs without a bag, there's a problem with the bag lock-out switch or wiring. This needs to be replaced/repaired by an authorized Aerus Electrolux technician.\015\012\015\012First, turn dial on top of vacuum counter-clockwis ... Electrolux Epic 6500 Vacuum

Hello, I have a problem with my Eureka Powerline bagged upright vacuum. It has a 12 amp motor and is model #4352, Type D. It was probably bought new in 1998. My problem is, while vacuuming today the motor seemed to slow down all of the sudden and then began smelling like burning rubber. I shut the vacuum off to check for blockages but could not find anything blocked. When I then turned it on again it runs but seems to only be running at 1/2 the motor speed and still has the rubber buring smell.


It sounds like a rubber sealing in the motor has come loose and is being constantly rubbed against the walls of the motor with would cause the smell and loss of motor speed caused by the fricton of rubber against the rod so if you can get to the moto ... Vacuums

We have a Kenmore Progressive Model 116 Upright bagged vacuum with Hepa filter. It's at least a couple years old.

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 electrolux oxygen cannister has the "bag change" light on when there is a new bag. The light stays on when the suction power is high (to pick up small particles) and it won't pick up, but the ight goes off when the suction power is low (to pick up big objects). I changed the hepa filter, cleaned the motor filter and changed bags, but all that didn't help.


You may have a clog in the hose, and/or the inlet by the brush roll. A clog will turn on that light as well as a full bag. ... Vacuums

I disassembled the entire vacuum, including disconnecting the motor wires, to clean out the hair, string, and other things. When I put everything back and connected all the wires, everything appears to work, including the light. The only problem is, it sounds extremely loud like the motor is running too fast.
