Having problems with your Electrolux Vacuums ?

Electrolux vacuum short circuit inside the canister


Answers :

By now you have probably stumbled on another post telling you how to do this, but just in case........

If the vac is not unplugged, do that before starting to avoid any nasty repercussions !

To open the canister there are two rubber bumpers on the sides, peel them off. Under these you will see two plastic strips - open the front of the canister (where the bag goes in) and you will see that these plastic strips are able to slide out of the tracks. Now the tricky part is to get them to move - personally on mine, i took a flat head screw driver and a hammer and "GENTLY" tapped the back end of them (where the cord is), once you get past the "shim" part that keeps them in, they should slide out easily, but keep the vac flat while you do this. Do it for both sides. After this is done, the top comes off. It will rock over to one side, if the bag area is to your right then it will come up and off to the opposite side - careful there are wires for the switch etc under there.

Good luck I hope this helped - I've had mine apart more times than any sane person should - great vac tho !
Please elaborate on the problem and if it truly is a short circuit in the canister .. unplug it and provide the model number so that I can help you find the short to repair it.. Have you attempted to open the canister up and look for some evidence of the short ( carbon or burnt wire etc)? Remember to always unplug it before attempting any troubleshooting...

I have an Eureka Express canister vacuum - I believe it's model 8284 - that just stopped working. Plug it in, turn it on, and absolutely nothing happens. I took it to the local sew and vac place and they say it's a circuit board that is no longer available. I've looked at all the parts lists and diagrams for that vacuum and I would swear there isn't a circuit board there. (I wouldn't have even thought that in 1989 they would have used circuits.) In any case, I absolutely love this machine a

My electrolux ambassador power wand quit working. I replaced the switch that shuts it off when the roller stops, but it wasn't the problem. The on/off switch is fine, the motor is fine. We have traced the problem to the wires inside the canister by opening the inside cover to the bag container. We see the power cords going into the canister but we're not able to get to anything. We can't find any screws to undo that would open it up in order to follow the wires deep into the canister. We've bypa

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 no power on a brand new Electrolux Oxygen canister vacuum. This is the second time. After the first time, I took it back to Sears where I bought the vacuum and they gave me a brand new vacuum. This is the second time it's happened, basically on both units after the time that i brought them home.
