Having problems with your Electrolux Vacuums ?

Vacum cleaner flashes lights and goes dead.

\015 Hi We have an Electrolux CM3 Model Code Z8240 Twinclean 1800 W vacum cleaner. Twice now the indicator lights have flashed then the machine has stopped and appears electricaly dead. Have left it for some time ie few days and tried it again and again. Still nothing. It appears electricaly dead. On taking it to the repair shop, after a $25 charge each time, they say they plugged it in and it went, no problems. We asume bumping it putting it in the car and vibrations during travel may have reset a overload switch or?? Appreciate your help. John.\015

This one is quite an old question, but answering in case anyone else finds this by googling.
When the machine stops and both lights flash, it means that it has overheated. This usually happens on the z8220 to z8280 range when the cone in the dust container is blocked, the twin filters are dirty, or the is something caught in the section between the 2 filters (access this section by removing the filters and then popping the small plastic cover out using the one big clip). After a few hours unplugged it should be ok to use again.
If it does not reset on its own, it will need to have a reset tool plugged in to the main circuit board. Only Electrolux agents (and me, as I used to be an agent) have this reset tool.
Hope this helps
Do you put it down before you turn it on? some vacs wont turn on in the upright position. Happened to me once til I stepped on the button to bed it back then powered right up.

I have a multifunction robotic auto vacuum cleaner model number XR210. It doesn't seem to be charging when at the docking station. The light is flashing on the docking station as if it was charging, but then I am getting intermittent noises like the vacuum is about to start up, then it beeps and goes silent again. I have emptied the machine. The display does not read 88 as if there is a malfunction, so I'm really not sure what's wrong with it. If I put the vacuum to the docking station the displ

My Roomba 4210 plays the dead battery song 10 seconds after I press Clean, Spot or Max. But I notice that I can put my roomba in diagnostic mode (with brushes, wheels etc) for long periods of time with plenty of strong power. Why won't it clean for more than five seconds without that dreadful tune, flashing power light and an amber status light?

Err5 When charging the battery, it starts out flashing amber, but after several minutes it turns red and the err button flashes five times. The troubleshooting says to hold the buttons above and below the power button for ten seconds and this may resolve some software issues. I tried that but it goes back to the amber light then red again. I replaced the battery hoping that was the issue, but it still does the same thing.

My 400 series Discovery Roomba will no longer charge. It shows a green "charged" light, but when I hit clean, all lights/vacuum, etc just go out and it stops. Irobot says that the entire unit needs to be replaced, but it has to have something to do with the charging mechanism. Any Ideas? I've tried the system reset, and removing/replacing the battery. No effect. The robot doesn't give me the "uh-oh" beeps to be charged. It just stops and goes dead.

I have a B60 Special edition Keurig. I turned the power on and the "not ready" indicator just never goes away. Consequently when I insert the k-cup and pull the lever down to activate, none of the lights flash so I cannot select or brew. The machine is out of warfranty - but it is only 2 years old. Surely I should get more mileage out of it. I use Britta filtered water in it...
