Our vacuum bag was full and we keep on vacuuming. I believe some lent and hair got sucked into the vacuum motor. We've changed the bag and filters. Now the motor makes a loud noise especially when shutting off. what should we do?

While vacuuming the red light for the bag of the vacuum came on and the vacuum stopped. The bag was no where near full so I replaced it with a new bag - same problem. It vaccumes for a minute or then stops with bag light on. It is the correct bag for the machine - so what's the problem?

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?

Hi there, I have an excellent Electrolux (but older) Diplomat LX model which stops when the bag is supposedly full. It''s not full however, but merely 1/4 to 1/3 full. I'd like to reduce the "sensitivity" of the sensor or turn it off altogether. I don't run my vacuum with a full bag, but there's a limit. Please tell me how to address this problem. Thanks very much.

Overheated vacuum After I finished vacuuming the library last night I changed the bag and shook out both filters and vacuum would not restart.

I have a Miele Vacuum cleaner MedicAir 5000 Plus. Recently the Dust Bag Indicator bar is full during normal cleaning and consequently the suction power is much less. I replaced the dust bag, engine pre-filter and Hepa filter but no change. When i remove the hose, the Indicator is normal, but when i attach the hose, wand, head, the indicator is full. I checked the hose, wand, head but can't see any blockage and when i blow with my mouth it seems fine. Can anybody help? thanks!
