Having problems with your Electrolux Vacuums ?

Electrolux ZB271RF Is the glass thingy, in series with the batteries, a resistor or a fuse? I borrowed a multimeter and it reads 0.5 megohms.


Answers :

I figured the glass thing was a slow blow fuse.
\015\012Why it blew in the first place I'm not sure, as the batteries and motor are okay.
\015\012I bought something similar from J-car and whacked it in, it's been working like a charm ever since.
\015\012It was probably caused by the canister being too full & the motor running unloaded that caused the over current protection to do it's job.
\015\012I just hope it wasn't a resister that limited the charging current to the batteries. I guess if I see a small mushroom shaped cloud of smoke when i put it on the charger, I'll know it was.

I have a Husqvarna Viking Designer sewing machine. The fuse blew in the machine and I am having trouble finding a replacement fuse. It is a T3.5/250v glass fuse. Please let me know where to find one. I have searched the internet high and low and can't find one. Radio Shack has a 3.0amp 250v slow blow fuse whick seems to be the right dimensions. Willl that work. Otherwise, I am not sure what to do and can't afford to take the machine to a repair show. Thank you.


That fuse will work no problem. There is no harm in trying it.The machine probably requires about 2 amps or less under normal operation. Being a 3.0 amp slow blow fuse, it will withstand short bursts of extra current when your machine get ... Vacuums

The 10 amp thermal fuse on my Panasonic MC-E468 vacuum cleaner has blown. Unfortunately the red ink has worn off exactly where the temperature rating is printed so even with a magnifying glass cannot make out the exact replacement fuse to buy. Can anyone shed any light. I know you can buy the complete thermal fuse and wiring from currys partmaster but with delivery would cost about 20 pounds as opposed to 69 pence for the fuse itself. Thanks Mark Roberts


It appears the fuse is not available separately. Standard retail price for the complete unit is £9.00 including VAT. We can supply at that price plus postage and packing at cost, which would probably be no more than £2.50.  If this i ... Vacuums

My Roomba Discovery 4210 seems to be dead. Specifically, with or without a battery, and whether on the charging station or plugged directly into the charging unit, I see no lights on the display whatsoever. This unit has a history of killing batteries, but now seems like it is completely dead. I understand that the batteries themselves contain fuses; is there some way to bypass the battery (for now) to verify whether the unit itself is completely dead? I should also note that this is the sec

I am currently unsure, it my Dyson DC16 battery is charging as it should. I read all the posts about Powersupply voltage of 28V and defective PCBs. I now need to know from someone who's DC16 is working properly what voltage the battery should have when it is charged. I currently only measure 24.2V in mine. Supposing there are 6 batteries in there with nominal 3.6 voltage each, which would add up to 21.6, I supposed one could charge with up to 25.2V (4.2*6) and once reach lower the voltage ke

Hi, I bought a Homedics toe touch weighing scale about 12 months ago (or less). I don't use it that often but a short time after I'd bought it it has started give inaccurate readings in terms of weight or no weight readings at all and just gives me the 'Err' message. I have changed the batteries but this doesn't seem to help neither does using it on a hard surface. Any ideas - I haven't kept the receipt so can't take it back! Regards Eleanor Kirk

Shopvac 90L400 quit working (4 years old). Thought the switch was bad but not the problem. I read that there is a fuse link in the motor that frequently burns up. I tried to take motor apart but not sure of the process. I was able to get to the motor but cannot pull it out of the armature. It appears I have to take the aluminum blower unit off the shaft (it appears to be pressed on with a retaining washer). Do I have to take it off to pull the shaft and motor assembly out? Is that where the fuse

We have an Aquanot II charger for our backup sump pump. We unplugged the charger from the battery, and just plug the charger into an outlet. As soon as we plug it into an outlet, the two LEDs lite up, and then the fuse trips within a second. We bought the whole sump pump backup system in June 2009, so it is fairly new. Any idea whether the charger can be repaired?

My sunbeam water cooler model #YLR2-5-67H3 has been sitting unplugged for 3 years. I moved, plugged it in and put a water bottle on top and water went all over the floor.

I put it over the sink, emptied it, checked the drain plug, tried running a glass full of tap water through each tap. Only the room temperature one would work.
