Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Bag full switch is bad

\015 My electrolux vacuum keeps shutting off. Where is the switch for indicating the bag is full? \015

Answers :

I assume this is an Electrolux Canister with long narrow body and a dial control on top for adjusting the bag fill level.. Please confirm model and name on canister, as in LE, Ambassador, Renaissance, etc.
If this is a plastic bodied unit with 2 side bumpers the body opens like a **** shell after sliding the bumpers out the front. The normal cause is a failed control valve under the dial at the top center of the vac. The failed part can only be replaced, not serviced and can purchased through an AERUS Electrolux repair center. Please confirm and I can wa;lk you through the process if required
Argh. I have the same problem. I would like to just shut off this 'feature' so I can use my vacuum again. Is there any way I can do this myself? I do have the canister with th e long narrow body and the dial control on top (never knew what that was for).

Actually the problem is inside of the canister itself. You need to change a part called the control valve. Occaisonally when fine particles get inside of the valve it damages the inside of the valve, sending a false reading to the main motor, causi ... Electrolux Lux 7000 Bagged Canister Vacuum

Won't work My Eureka Mighty Mite 3670 Bagged, was working fine, and we unplugged it to switch to another outlet in another room and it just stopped. We tried several other outlets and it just won't turn on. We thought maybe it got hot because we had been using it for a while and we let it rest for a while and then changed the bag just to be sure, although it was not full. But it still will not turn on. Any ideas?
