Having problems with your Electrolux Vacuums ?

Lux legacy vacuum runs fine and was recently serviced - yesterday the tone of the motor on the vac started a higher sounding pitch - is this a potential problem and is there anything i can do with it - thank you


Answers :

You don't mention whether it was the canister or upright model, but if it sounds differnet than what it usually does, then there is a potential problem. It could be anything from a full/clogged bag to a dirty filter to a clogged hose. You can check the hose by tyring to drop a coin through it.
\015\012If you didn't get it serviced at an authorized Aerus Electrolux shop, there could very well be other problems that were caused by an untrained service tech.
\015\012If it was recently serviced, and none of the above suggestions solve the problem, take it back to the shop that serviced it.
\015\012Also, keep in mind that these vacuums carry a 10 year warranty, but if serviced by a non-Aerus shop, the warranty is voided.

I bought a Kenmore canister vacuum, model 116, in April 2007. This morning, the sound of the motor suddenly began to deepen, and I began to lose suction. Normally, if something is clogging the hose, the motor will wind up to a higher pitch, not a lower one. The filters are clean, the bag is empty, and I can't detect anything lodged in the hose. If this were a car's engine, I would say it's "lugging down". Any pointers?


Okay, bear with me. Is it possible you have a suction adjustment, dial somewhere on vac. Check and see and if it does, be sure it's all the way up. Also, try removing hose and run a broom handle fr. one end to the other...BUT be careful not to stretc ... Vacuums

Dry vac will **** water normally, than the motor makes a higher pitched sound and stops suction. Does this have anything to do with the filter si since it is in bad shape and hasn't been replaced?


No it usually means that the vac is full and the ball then floats up and blocks the vac so that water doesn't get sprayed everywhere. ... Ridgid 9 Gallon Wet/Dry Shop Vac 96882 Canister Vacuum

I have a Craftsman brand shop vac [model # 113.77420]. It is still picking items when I sweep with it, but it has developed a very high pitched squealing sound whenever I turn it on. The sound makes it almost impossible to use. Any thoughts? Thanks, Bruce

I have a HBS 20 fan. I've had for a few years but seldom used. I turned it on last week and it made this humming sound. After a few minutes it started running just fine. However, now it does not hum or do anything else. What is wrong & how can it be repaired? Please help. Thank you

I have a Kirby G5 and need to replace the gear drive shaft, as the lever inside fell off and the shaft came out. (Common problem by the sound of it.) How do i remove the actual gearbox itself. I have removed the 3 screws on the bottom, but it's not coming out. What's stopping it from coming out? Do i need to remove the gearbox drive belt first? If so, how do i get to it?

Motor seems like it is overworking. The sound of the vacuum is higher pitched than before.


Hi!  Almost certainly your vacuum has a blockage somewhere. The higher pitch means the motor is running faster than normal, but it's not overworking, it's actually working less because it's moving less air.  Check for blockages and clear wh ...

I have just replaced the bag in my miele and the indicator is showing that the bag is full. The air coming from the exhaust is hot and the machine is making a higher pitched sound as it does when the bag is full. When the hose is detached, the indicator registers as empty and there doesn't seem to be a blockage.

My versatility electrolux vacuum is 2 years old and it has lost its suction, i have replaced the filters and checked every hosing area i have access to, it seems to all be clear. I dont know what else to do, it has a higher pitched whinnig sound when it is on


It sounds like the fan blades have worn away until there's basically no air resistance, thus no air flow/suction. The whine is created by the motor turning at a higher speed due to lack of resistance. \015\012The fan wasn't covered by the wa ... Electrolux Vacuums

My shop vac is plugged. The hose is clear. The filter is removed. The filter bag is not installed. It still won't draw a suction. It sounds like it is plugged. The motor whines at a higher-than-usual pitch. What can I do?

Hi. I have a Kirby from back in the early 90s (model G3D). Never had major issues with it. Can't remember the last time I had maintenance/tune up done. It's just sounding different when I run it the last few times...almost like it's louder and kind of echo-ey. Still suctioning well, but something's not right and I don't want to run it until I know if anything's up. Any suggestions? I'd like to try and figure this one out on my own with your help. Thanks in advance for your help. Marci


Check the belt. this is a strong vaccume and even without the belt it will still have a decent amount of suction. If the belt is not tight or intact it can let the motor turn faster which will sound louder. other than that check all the hoses for hol ... Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum
