Having problems with your Electrolux Vacuums ?

I have an electrolux enviro multi steamer and have no instructions. I filled it up and turned it on and it is steaming out everywhere. The handle became too hot to use. What am I doing wrong ?


Answers :

Check the handle. There is a Button which you press and hold and one which slides up and down. The slide button is so you don't have to depress the other button (when you are wanting constant steam, ie., for cleaning floors etc...).

I would suggest that the slide button is engaged (meaning in the on position), slide it back the opposite way and see if this solves the problem. Regards, Tina

The handle for my Eureka 5993 AVZ was getting very hot when used. Finally, the wires around the switch melted and now the vacuum will not work. What is wrong? Is the switch bad? The wires only melted in the immediate vicinity of the three-prong switch. Nothing else appears to be wrong; the vacuum worked fine when it was running - except for the handle getting hot. Thank you!

Hi, I've a Tefal Steam Generator Express Turbo 2910. It won't "steam". The solenoid works when the button is pressed. The pump works. I've cleaned the tank (with white vinegar as recommended on this site!) thoroughly. The water from the steam tank is only "hot" (not scalding as I'd expect it to be). When first switched on and hot enough there is the TINIEST whiff of steam when the button is pressed then nothing more. Do you think this could be the Thermostat Part CS00094126, or can you
