Having problems with your Electrolux Guardian Bagged Canister Vacuum ?
My canister machine kicks off immediately after starting and bag full light goes on but it has a new bag
Hi from uk your problem with vac may be the gauze filter on the inside of the compartment that has bag this filter there to allow air from the micro pores of the bag to expel to the exterior of vac (room) whilst preventing dust from expelling too ? normally another symptom of this is the vac cover sometimes flips up ? however if air cannot expel from compartment it will cause overheat of motor resulting in auto cut off but will reset when cooled SO check the filter gauze and renew or wash clean? hope you understand above and hope this helps ?

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?
