Having problems with your Electrolux Vacuums ?
Have the Electrolux 2000. When turned on motor does not come on or the suction but rug wand attachment does?!!
Hello,i think it's the motor housing you will need to replace,that is the reason why the motor does not come on,i hope you have checked the bag collectors to see they are in good shape.
Hello. The fact that the rug wand comes on indiicates that you do have power to the machine but the motor is not coming on. There are a number of possible reasons for this, the costliest being that the motor is bad. However it could also be a loose connection, or a relay. For these issues, I recommend that you take it in to your local vacuum repair shop. Joe

No suction Just received my refurb. dyson animal bagless. Finally figured out how to get it all together, turned it on and there is no suction coming up thru the beater bar. The hair is just collecting around the bar and not going up into the canister. It appears all the suction is going thru the open red end of the attachment hose, which has a vented cover piece. Am I missing a piece or is there a switch to turn of the attachment suction?
So the red hose isn't connected to a part on the vaccum so like it is connected to the connester but not to an opening just above the beater bar, this is the only idea i can supply you with. good luck, maybe i got lucky and helped you out. ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
HI, I have a Kenmore 25813 and it seems like there is an intermittent short. When I have the extension wand on and the power floor attachment on, when it rotate the wand the light cuts out and so does the power floor attachment, when I twist it back it comes on again. I don't have this problem if I remove the wand and just use the crevice tool with the hose. Any idea where the short might be and can I fix it myself? Thanks. Gary

I sucked up a sock into the carpet attachment of my electrolux 3500 series and the carpet attachment cut off.

No suction My vacuum does not seem to have much suction when in use. The agitator brush is rotating but I'm not able to get much off the carpet. The suction is fine when I use the attached wand.

My kirny lost suction even with the hose attachment not the rug attachment
I have a Miele Vacuum cleaner MedicAir 5000 Plus. Recently the Dust Bag Indicator bar is full during normal cleaning and consequently the suction power is much less. I replaced the dust bag, engine pre-filter and Hepa filter but no change. When i remove the hose, the Indicator is normal, but when i attach the hose, wand, head, the indicator is full. I checked the hose, wand, head but can't see any blockage and when i blow with my mouth it seems fine. Can anybody help? thanks!

I opened the cannister to change the bag and when I closed it the motor switch will not turn on. The second position which turns on the attachment for rugs still comes on. We thougth it was the switch so we ordered the part and it is still doing the same thing. Is there a reset button somewhere inside? The only reset button I see is on the attachment which is working.

My electrolux oxygen canister cuts on and off. I have to open and close the vacuum, or take the base of the hose off and then re-insert. I have to do all these things before it will start up again. I sometimes shake the hose around, then it will come back on. If I try to dust with the dust brush (like a lamp shade or shelf) and the suction pulls against the object, the vacuum goes off for awhile. Sometimes I'll have to reset the vacuum by unplugging the electric cord. I never get to finis

I have an older model Electrolux central vac. When I put the hose into the wall outlet, the cannister comes on but there is no suction ? What is needed to correct this?
Three things are the most likely.\015\0121. Since it's an older model, the hose is likely well worn and probably has leaks at each end where it attaches to the handle and connector at the other end. If this is the case, a new hose is needed. ... Electrolux Central Vacuum
