20 Most Recent Electrolux Lux 5500 Canister Vacuum Questions & Answers


Do you mean the Electrolux/Aerus Lux 5500 canister vacuum? Is so, then the upside down U with a ? indicates check bag. Often it indicates no bag is in place. The filled in upside-down U below that means that the bag is full. Change your filter bag then reset the on/off switch. (Turn the unit off while you change the bag and then turn it on again once the bag is properly in place.)

This is shown in the manual here: http://www.modes-d-emploi.com/manuals/599758/aerus-lux-5500.html?page=4 .

I hope this helps.

The handle is replaceable. Any Aerus Electrolux franchise with a service shop should have them available.

This can be a complex undertaking, so I highly recommend taking it to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store for repair. I've seen many disassembled machines come in to the shop because the owner couldn't figure out how to put it back together. Any misplaced wires during reassembly can result in nonworking vacuum, shock and even fire hazard.
Taking it to the shop may cost more, but I believe is less expensive in the long run. They'll do it right.

Tilt the front of the vacuum to a 45-90 degree angle. Gently tug and release cord until it retracts.
If this doesn't work, repair or replacement of the cordwinder is needed. For this the vacuum needs to be taken to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store.

Make sure the brush is clear of all thread, string, hair, and similar material that has gotten wrapped around it.
There could be a problem with one of the electrical connections from vacuum to power nozzle, including broken wire in the hose. Check all connections for cracks, discoloration, and looseness.
You may need to take the vacuum to the shop. If so, make sure you take it to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store. Service tech should be able to determine the problem quickly.
Just remember, it just needs fixed, you don't need a new vacuum, and tell them that.

Why do you need to get to the cord assembly?
If the cord will not retract, tilt the vacuum to about a 45 degree angle and gently tug and release cord. It will usually retract.
Due to problems ensuing from untrained persons attempting to reassemble the vacuum and having to take it to the shop anyway, I recommend not taking it apart.
If the above isn't the problem, please take it to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store for repair.

The easiest solution would be to call your local Aerus/ Electrolux representative, because the corporation doesnt publish diagrams.

Try this. Set vacuum on it's back end. Gently pull out cord and release. It may take a few tries, but should work
Repair/service manuals are only available to authorized service tech at authorized Aerus Electrolux stores. These are in the form of software available only from AE to authorized stores. The explanation process would be quite lengthy, and would itself be worth more than $75.
Taking the vacuum and cordwinder apart is somewhat tricky and can result in damage to it. Reassembling correctly can also be tricky.

Sounds like you have a worn latch, check for a replacement. One certain models you can move the connector closer to the hose opening. For the most part it needs replacement, there are few fixes for this problem
