Having problems with your Vacuums ?
Red light won't turn off
\015 The red indicator light is on and won't turn off. I've changed the bag so it's a brand new bag but the light is still on. I also looked to see if the filter was dirty or clogged and it's not. When I turn on the vacuum it looks like smoke is coming out but nothing smells like it's burning. I don't know if it is just dust or what. What else could be the problem? I have the Simplicity 6 series vacuum\015
You probably have a clog in either the hose, or the dirt inlet by the brush roll. That red light is telling you that either the bag is full or a clog is not allowing suction.

My purple Dyson Animal (without the ball) isn't working correctly. When I turn it on, the red power light, as well as the medium pile buttons flashes. When I first turn it on, the brush rotates for 3 to 5 seconds, then once I start moving the vacuum, it stops and that's when the lights start flashing. I've checked the filters, they are dry and installed correctly. What could be the problem?

I have just purchased two (2) Electrolux Nimble vacuum cleaners. Not one, but both, straight out of the box, the beater bars will not run. It turns on, select carpet, and lower the handle, the red light to check beater bar/or filter lights up. You can reset the light by unplugging the unit, then plugging it back in, but with same results.
