Having problems with your Electrolux Vacuums ?

I have an upright, but use it as a canister. It will start sometimes and vac for about half and hour and then it will quit. I can't get it started again even after it cools off.


Answers :

First check the hose and down by the brush roll for a clog. If there is a clog, it will cause the motor to overheat and the theremo protector will cause the motor to shut off until it has cooled. Now if it won't turn back on, the thermo protector may have gone bad, or the motor itself has gone bad.

Brush turning slowly while shampooing. It starts out fast, but after a minute or 2 the brush is not spinning very fast. I have powered it off and let it cool down. I just started out so I can't believe the engine is over heating, just doing 2 rooms, can't even get through the first room. If I take the brush attachment off, then put it back on and then turn it on, it spins fast, but after a a few minutes, it's spinning softly/slowly again. Kirby diamond edition

Restrictive valve moments after starting the vac the red ball rises to the top and the machine quits sucking.

Good evening, I have a Xio Z1010 electrolux vaacum cleaner and I hope you'll be able to give me some advice. The vacuum cannot be started. Last time it started for a few seconds and stopped suddenly. Something similar happened long time ago but that was due to overheating. Once cooled down in few hours it would start again. It is not the case now after 24 hours. Could you give me any idea what could be the reason? Your help would be much appreciated. Adorian

It starting to put out a hot type smell. I have tried cleaning the filters real well and even tried to see if there was problem with the ozone filter. We have checked and could not find a jam.

Then it gets real strong and it makes my eyes water

I have a nearly 9 year old Electrolux Excellio Z5228 vacuum cleaner. It has recently started cutting out during operation. I cleaned the micro filter (between bag & motor) via brush & hitting against wall & seems / looks quite clean.

My Dyson animal seems to have an electrical issue that I am unable to pinpoint. Neither the wand nor the floor vac have any suction AT ALL. In fact the vac makes absolutely no sound and you wouldn't even know that it had power to it unless the rollers are turned on, the rollers work just fine.

My FEIN 9-55-'13 recently started making more noise and is now officially a "screamer". There also developed quite a vibration associated with the noise which made me think it was probably bearings. So I took it apart and found no detectable play or lateral movement in the bearings, they seem fine to me. So I thought perhaps the brushes. The rotor where the brushes ride is quite black but I can't figure out how to get to those brushes, although I don't really think they are causing the noise


This problem is only caused by one thing the motor bearings are noisy, I have never found any other reason, they may look good and fell good but trust me replace the motor and the noise ... Fein 9-55-13 Turbo II Bagged Canister Vacuum

The brush is not moving on the vaccume. I'm pretty sure that the belt is busted. I cannot see how to get the shroud off, so that I can get to the roller and belt.

Hello, I have the same model. And though it is three years old, starting from the last month, it does not clean anything anymore. Cannot even pick up one single thing from the floor. Every dirt gets stuck in the hose. I cleaned the hose and cleaned the filters but it still does not pick anything up. Is three years its normal lifetime or do I have the change the filters, instead of cleaning them? Thanks.

Hmmm Hi there, I actually had tried everything you mentioned except for the vinegar idea which I'll do when I get back up to my home in Oregon. I checked for pinches, the heater, etc. Water does NOT come out of the accessory tool and only will dispense out of the main area for a second or two..any liquid actually starts filling up the area right behind the nozzles and around the pump instead of OUT of the machine.
