Electrolux epic keeps shutting down - ? symbol is on

The "?" sign is usually indicating that there is no bag in the machine. On the Canadian models, there is a switch that the cardboard of the bag pushes on when the lid is closed. If this switch is not depressed, then the machine will not run. Again, on the Canadian models, there is a clear plastic "pin" extending out the bottom right corner of the bag compartment and is pressed in when the bag is installed and the lid closed. You should be able to press this in and start the machine with the main switch, just to test it.

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

I have an Electrolux LE canister. It runs for about 2minutes then shuts off for about a minute , then turns on again and it keeps repeating this routine!!! It is driving me nuts. What part do I need to replace? Apparently it is over heating. Please help. Thank you.
The LE has a thermal cutoff. If the bag is overfilled or a bag breaks and clogs the bag chamber the vac will over heat. This also happens if the hose, wand or neck of the power head is obstructed. Try dropping a coin through the hose, look thro ... Vacuums
Our Electrolux Epic Series 6500 SR reads the bag is full and shuts down even though the bag was just changed
This is most probably due to a worn out or clogged Control Valve Assembly.\015\012Detach the hose and see if it runs. If it does, place hand over hole. If it shuts off, CVA is probably the cause. A clogged CVA is generally due to using gener ... Vacuums
My electrolux Epic 6500 power nozzle Model N109J will not work. It had an intermittent short which I thought I fixed (some of the insulation on the wires were pinched). I fixed the wires and it worked intermittently for an hour then shut down completely. Could the reset switch have a short? When I press the switch nothing happens.
The switch is definitely a possibility, but other problems can also cause this.\015\012Bad switch, needs replaced.\015\012Broken wiring in power nozzle, wands, hose, or canister.\015\012Bad PN motor.\015\012\015\012I str ... Electrolux Epic 6500 Vacuum

Why does my dyson slim dc18 keep shutting down, even though i keep it clean. Filters area is clean and all others have been properly blown out with air from a air compressor. It will work for about 5-10 minutes and then shuts down. Smells like ****, check the belt and a bit later it restarts again. It's seems to be almost over heating.
Maybe your motor is going. Here's a link to a site that talks about motor failure and replacement in a DC07 (not DC18). I don't know exactly what the odor smells like but maybe you can see if you have any of the other symptoms. Good luck! ...

My vacuum cleaner will run for a few minutes and then shuts off. The plug light on the panel blinks. I thought the motor was shut, but after a long time it will turn on again, but again, only for a few minutes and then shuts off again. Any ideas?

My electrolux oxygen vacuum cleaner shut off and will not turn back on. It's less than a year old, but I bought it off Craig's list--they were the orginal owner and they said they bought it in May of 2008. I've only used it a few times and it worked fine except for the last time when it suddenly just shut off. I thought maybe it had come unplugged and I didn't really worry about it because I was finished vacuuming. But, I went to use it tonight and it would not turn on at all--no lights, nothing
