Having problems with your Electrolux Lux 7000 Bagged Canister Vacuum ?

Full bag system works properly, but doesn't reset easily

\015 I have an Electrolux Epic 6500 SR (predecessor of Lux 7000).The full bag system works properly--it shuts down the vacuum when the bag is full and illuminates the full bag light.However, when I try to start the vacuum again with a new bag, the full bag light stays on and the vacuum doesn't reset right away.If I put a new bag into the machine and press the on/off switch 5 +\015\012times, the full bag light goes out and the vacuum starts running\015\012again. I have had several of these vacuums with the full bag sensors\015\012and I have never run into a problem with the system on any of them before.Here's the scenario:1. Vacuuming until the bag is full and the sensor switches off the machine and the full bag light illuminates.2. Press on/off switch to turn "off" vacuum--Full bag light stays illuminated.3. Insert new and empty bag.4. Press on/off switch to turn on vacuum (full bag light is still illuminated).5. Vacuum does not turn on (full bag light is still illuminated).6. Press on/off switch 5+ times and the full bag light turns off.7. Press on/off switch and vacuum turns on.Anyone have an idea? The Aerus/Electrolux service agent near me simply tells me that I should invest in a new vacuum cleaner. I know that there is an alternative solution here.\015

Either there is something wrong with your switch. Which it doesnt sound like it. Take it to your dealer or call another one it sounds like the control valve needs to be replaced. I am a dealer 1-866-966-9350.
I opened the case and watched the full-bag switch in action. It reset every time but still failed when the hose was connected. I saw nothing to suggest that five on-off cycles of the switch would reset anything, but tried it five times anyway. I tried taping a bit of foam at the end of the bar the vacuum switch moves and it worked fine for about five minutes after reassembly. I gave up, popped it open again, disconnected the clear hose from the vacuum switch and plugged the end of the hose leading to the dial control so that it wouldn't be a constant bleed on the vacuum. When it begins to lose suction I'll check the bag just as I do on other vacuums.

Havent used for about two years. I had to put the belt on it. It doesnt seem to be sucking up very well and after about 15 minutes of vaccuuming the bag was empty. My house got really dusty. I know the rollers were spinning because i looked. I could hear some dirt going in but could definatly tell it wasnt working properly. Is it in reverse or something?


After two years you need to make sure the bag is connected properly and inspect it for tears and that the hoses are connected correctly and not deteriorated. Make sure the hose is clear. You should be able to feel the suction at the end of the hose. ... Vacuums

My Windsor Sensor XP12 says the bag is full when it's not. I have removed the hose, brush, and filter and cleaned everything. I can put a bag on without the cover and it works great. However, when I add the bag to the front cover and close the latch the right way, it does not work. I'm thinking that the cover is not seating the bag correctly over the hole, but I can't figure out how to fix it. Any suggestions?

Changed the motor carbon brushes on my Beam central vacuum cleaner equiped with an IntelliWatch system. This system includes the Alutron DB100 module. This Alutron module needs to be reset so that the vacuum cleaner can operate properly. I believe that this module keeps log of running time and disables operation after a predetermined time. Can you help me with providing a reset procedure that will reset this module. Thanks

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?

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 think I am not getting the plate and spring back in the canister correctly. Any instructions or pictures showing proper insertion and configuration of these? I looked in the manual and the part is only shown while bag being inserted.

My 2001 miele stopped working Black cannister. I believe cleaning ladies overheated it as the bag was very full and the vac felt warm to touch. I replaced bag and let cool down but it will not start. This has happened before and the vac store said they replaced the cord because it tends to go when it over heats. I have not taken in for and estimate but I fugure it will be at least $150 to repair. Is the another option.

Vacuum working perfectly and everything stopped. Went to the utility room and found a plastic bag on top of the equipment. Tried the reset button, etc. nothing works.

I have tried the brush reset button but can't find another reset...


There is no other reset. The Dyson will cut out if it gets too hot, but resets itself when it cools.

I was vacuuming and noticed that the bag needed changing. the red light with the ! inside the triangle also came on. When the bag was changed, the vacuum would not restart. The red light came on. Tried the reset button but nothing happened. Tried unplugging and re-plugging in and nothing happened. Replaced all the filters and still it wouldh't start. So I brought it downstairs and tried one more time to get it to start. it worked! Is there something wrong with the vacuum cleaner? Was it overheat


It was overheated that is why it worked downstairs after cooling off. ... Miele S548 Bagged Canister Vacuum

Greetings,\015\012\015\012I would say that you have a slight clog in the hose or in the power nozzle somewhere. The full bag indicator is just a guage that will indicate full when it feels like it's lost suction. Example: If you were ... Vacuums

The light is separate from motor. No reset switch. Check for a fuse but i suspect it may be brushes are worn out and not making contact.Sometimes that starts as an intermittent.Hopefully one of the coils isn't open circuited. ... Sharp Twin Energy EC-12TWT4 Bagged Upright Vacuum
