Electrolux has been producing automatic vacuum cleaners for a long time, offering high-quality machines to help you keep your home spotless. Occasionally, however, your vacuum may shut off during its operation when the motor overheats, which could be a sign of an underlying issue. Follow these troubleshooting procedures to repair your Electrolux vacuum and get back to cleaning.
Your vacuum cleaner's thermal cut-off element shuts down the appliance as a protective feature when the motor gets too hot. Press the power button on the vacuum before unplugging it from the power source to reset it, and let it cool for at least 30 minutes before turning it on again. If the element trips again, certain vacuum parts such as the suction motor may be broken.
A clogged hose or a full dust bag can also cause the vacuum to shut off. Empty or replace a full bag, and use a thin tool to clear out a blockage from the hose or nozzle. For more vacuum repair help, check whether the brush roller is jammed, which can also cause a sudden shut-off.
Try plugging another small appliance into the outlet to see if the problem lies with the power source. If the outlet is not providing electricity, check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Plug your vacuum cleaner into a different outlet to continue cleaning.
