Having problems with your Vacuums ?
Bag full signal shows when a bag is still on its
\015 Red 'bag full' signal shows within minutes of first use when there's hardly anything in it. Why? Could there a filter that needs replacing somewhere? I think there are seven, though I can only find two.\015
This is often caused by fine dust such as drywall dust or an internal filter behind the bag being clogged. Look for blockage in the bag comaprtment

When removing the canister bag, the plate and spring that it slides into popped out. When I put them back in, the bag full indicator is completely red. It is a new bag and filters.

I looked in the manual and the part is only shown while bag being inserted.

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?

Electrical problem The light comes on but the motor will not come on when the on button is pressed. Is there a reset button? I thought it was because the bag was full but I just changed the bag and the motor still will not come on.
