Having problems with your Electrolux Lux 5500 Canister Vacuum ?

The bag light turns on and the vacuum turns off within seconds of turning the vacuum on even with a brand new bag


Answers :

First try turning dial on top of the machine so the arrow lines up with the smallest dot.
\015\012The most likely problem is clogged, worn, or broken control valve assembly (CVA). It could also be clogged tubes to the CVA. This is usually caused by using "made to fit" bags rather than the genuine bags made by Home Solutions. The vacuum would need to be taken to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store for repair/replacement. Generally, if this is the problem, the interior of the vacuum, including the motor, needs cleaned as well.
\015\012Some other simple things you can check are:
\015\012Dirty afterfilter. This is located on the exhaust hole on the back of the vacuum. To access, press in on tab at back of the exhaust cover, lift cover from the back, and remove filter. If the filter is dark, it is clogged with dust particles and needs replaced. Turn vacuum on and run it for awhile. If it continues to run, this is the problem.
\015\012Another potential cause is a clogged hose. Disconnect hose at both ends. Drop a coin down one end and lift that end to allow coin to drop through the other end. If it does, fine. If not, connect hose to the exhaust port, place other end into a large garbage bag, or into the in port of the vacuum, and turn on. This almost always clears the hose.
\015\012Check the elbow of the power nozzle where the hose connects. Drop a coin through here to check for clogs. If there is one, it can generally be cleared by pushing it toward the brush with a wooden spoon handle, or similar blunt object.

I cannot charge my two year old electrolux pronto. I purchased a brand new hand held vacuum for it, but even the new one does not charge. When I plug in the cord nothing happens. If I turn on either the long handle or the portable unit within the long unit, the blue charging light comes on for a few seconds, then out. This tells me that the circuit is intact without a broken wire somewhere. I took it all apart carefully and could see nothing broken or out of place. On re-constructing it, it

I just received My brand new hoover platinum lightweight upright UH30010 (with canister) which I ordered through ebay and today is just the SECOND time I used it but the check bag light indicator is already flashing.

My filter queen just had the motor rebuilt last year and was basically a brand new unit when I got it back. It is not picking anything up now when I vacuum.
