\015\012If you have the bag door open just to feel if there is suction it won't work. The machine would have to have its door put back on before suction can be ascertained. In the meantime check the hose that leads into the bag, or main dust channel - it may well be clogged as well as motor filters usually located under the paper bag.

I have an electrolux epic 6500 sr. The change bag light came on, I changed the bag, now it won't run properly. If the bag is out and the hose attached it will run or if the bag is in and the hose is off it will run, but not if the bag is in and the hose is attached. Any suggestions?

First, if it runs without a bag, there's a problem with the bag lock-out switch or wiring. This needs to be replaced/repaired by an authorized Aerus Electrolux technician.\015\012\015\012First, turn dial on top of vacuum counter-clockwis ... Electrolux Epic 6500 Vacuum

My Windsor Sensor XP12 says the bag is full when it's not. I have removed the hose, brush, and filter and cleaned everything. I can put a bag on without the cover and it works great. However, when I add the bag to the front cover and close the latch the right way, it does not work. I'm thinking that the cover is not seating the bag correctly over the hole, but I can't figure out how to fix it. Any suggestions?

I have a Electrolux Epic 6500 SR canister vacum cleaner. It is nine years old and for the past few weeks it has started shutting off for no apparent reason.The symbol for bag change lights up and it cuts off, but even after I have put a new bag in, it still does the same thing. Do you have any suggestions? There is a little button or switch that the top of the bag fits on. Do you think it could be the problem?

Your machine is probably clogged, look through the wands, look in the bottom attachment, to see if there is anything stuck there. You can also drop a marble through the hose itself to see if anything is stuck there as well. To unclog the hose try hol ... Electrolux Harmony Canister Vacuum - EL6985 Vacuum

Won't start. My son was using the vacuum & Didn't change the bag. The vacuum was making the full bag smell, but the light was't on & it didn't stop. I stopped him, changed the bag, checked the filter, closed the compartments & turned on the vacuum. Nothing happened. I checked to be sure that it was plugged in, that wasn't the problem. I've let the vacuum "rest" for several days, It still won't start. Any suggestions?

No suction I just replaced the bag, and normally after this I have a lot of suction. Now that I have changed the bag I have less suction that I had before. Not even enough to picj up dog hair. I snaked he hose and checked all of the connections. It seems to have an air leak but no amount of tape will fix this. I cleaned the filer as well with warm water and dried it and re installed but still absolutely no suction. I am ready to throw it out! Any suggestions would be appreciated

I was just using my Bosch 1450W bagged vacuum and all of a sudden, the motor just shut down. No warning, no problems. The light still turns on, but the motor is unresponsive. There is a clean bag and filter, and nothing caught in the front roller. The motor sounded fine - no shaking, or weird frequency variations. There were no weird smells, just a little bit of heat, but nothing beyond normal. I've had this thing for several years, and never had a bit of trouble with it. Any suggestions

Oreck XL21 just will not work at all any more. Beater is clean - belt is fine. Fresh bag - inflates. Took the thing apart - checked for blockages at intake, bag entry, and the tube. It just doesn't vacuum anything. No suction at all for anything stronger than air. I'd say it doesn't ****, but that would be ironic. Are these known for just "quitting" after a while? We take it in for maintenance as recommended to replace filters, etc. Is there some miracle trick to make it work or sho

Hi. I purchased a Simplicity Freedom about 2 years ago. I have had it in for various repairs several times.
