    Identical problem: vacuum switches on for a second, then off again, with a brand new bag, and the full bag light switches on. Sounds like I need to replace the Control Valve. How do I open the Electrolux Lux 7000 to get to where this control valve is located, and how do I locate it? Can you please send me instructions and a schematic diagram?

    I do not have any clogs & filter is clean. Any suction at all and bag full comes on. Could the pressure switch be bad

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, causing it to shut off. This is a relatively quick and easy repair and should be recieved on a same day basis.

Lux5000 will run until hose is attached, then shuts down. Pushing the reset button did nothing.


Experienced the same problem, just fixed it! Lift up the control dial on top of canister. You will see two small clear hoses inside. Detach the hose going to the "bag full" sensor light. It'll fix the problem!

Aerus Lux 7000: the full bag light keeps coming on but the bag is not full.


Electrolux uses a pressure differential control valve. This valve measures air before and after the bag. There is a orfice or small hole where the hose connects to the vacuum cleaner, and a orice at the back of the bag canister. As the bag fills up the suction pressure reduces at the hose connection and increases at back of the bag canister. When this happens the control valve has a diaphram that closes, which shuts the vacuum off and gives you a full bag light. There is a thin plastic flange that prevents an o ring on the control valve stem from coming off. The flange breaks, the o rings comes off the stem and the vacuum will shut down indicatiing bag full. The after market price is about 22.00. The valve is easy to replace if you are familiar on electrolux vacuums. When I replace these valves, I use epoxy two part plastic putty on the flange of the valve. It takes 2 days to cure, but the flange will not break.

My electrolux vac shut off for a full bag. After replacing the bag the vac won't start and the bag full light stays on.What should I be looking for to resolve my problem?


If the suggestion that renevacdoc did not work, it is most likely that your valve assembly(full bag control) has gone bad and needs to be replaced. You will have to take your vac to the Aerus/Electrolux dealer/service store for repair.

It sounds like the valve assembly (full bag control) is faulty. Threr are two O rings inside of it and the plactic holding the bottom one has broken. You'll have to take it to the shop.

Electrolux Epic 6500SR Full Bag sensor working, Does not Reset properly


The problem was a sticking switch that was not being reset. The vacuum on/off switch mechanism is comprised of two switches. One is the main switch that turns the vacuum on and off. The second is a shut off switch that gets tripped when the full bag sensor is engaged. This second switch is supposed to get reset when you push the on/off switch on the outside of the machine. The full bag shutoff switch was stiff and it, therefore, was taking a couple of presses of the on/off switch to move the shutoff switch back into the running position.

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


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.
