Make sure the bag is in place correctly. The question mark light indicates that there isn't a bag in the machine. There is a small button in the front of the bag housing that is depressed by the cardboard top of the bag. I think it is located in the bottom right hand of the bag housing if you are facing the front of the machine. Make sure the bag is depressing this actuator when the front of the machine is closed. If it is, it may be an internal problem with the switch. Good Luck!!

What does the key light stand for on lux7000 canister vaccuum?


The light on the top of the 7000 that represents a "key" as you state it, is actually a "No Bag" light. That means to check the bag compartment for a bag. Replace if you do not see one. Close the door, push the start button, and voila....it will start. If it doesn't , make sure the bag top (cardboard) is flush inside. It may be missing the bag switch. Hope that helps!

Will not turn on, question mark sensor is on


This is because the filter bag has been removed and you need to install a new filter bag....Once the filter bag is installed, the unit should run as before.

Electrolux Model 2100 vacuum won't work


hi from uk may i suggest you remove cover and the new dust collection bag then if you look in the bag compartment there is a gauze filter fitted usually grey in colour ? at opposite end of compartment where bag connects this gauze filter is the outlet from bag compartment that the air exhales when vac is operating ie as vac **** up dust into bag the bag has microscopic holes that allow sucked up air and dust to collect but keeps dust from passing into bag chamber but allows air to escape thro holes and so enter bag chamber then escapes via the gauze filter to outside of vac hope you follow this ?? now if this filter is blocked/never been cleaned/changed ? then the symptoms of indicator bag full light will come on you can remove and wash filter if it is gauze typ? dry and refit then try vacuuming ? or replace filter they are not expensive usually in pack of 3 in uk DO NOT RUN VAC WITHOUT THIS FILTER FITTED ! or you will have some dust in the room ? hope this helps?

Bag was full, changed it, the unit now turns off


Try dialing the control valve to the mid way position. If the unit still shuts down with the bag full light on you have a damaged control valve under the dial on the top of the vac.
This valve failure is common in this model and can only be repaired by someone with original AERUS Electrolux repair parts, generally at an AERUS repair shop.

How to reset?


The button I think you are talking about is the bag switch. It is located in the bottom right corner where you put the bag. If the bag does not cover it, the machine will not run.
Also, when the machine cuts off when the bag is full, you have to push the power switch off and back on to reset the full bag switch located in the switch control housing inside the machine.

? light is on and vacuum cleaner not running


According to the manual, the machine doesn't "think" there is a bag. If you open it up and remove the bag, there should be a small button in the lower right hand corner where the cardboard top of the bag rests. Depressing this button should make the "?" light go out, and the machine run if it's in the on position. Return the bag to the unit and make sure the bag is depressing this switch when you close the door. Good Luck!!

Same Shut Off Problem as Hamster71


The part that you call the particle size sensetivity adjuster is bad. There are 2 seals in the assembly, the lower seal is slipping out of place because the plastic lip which keeps it in place is broken. Split housings and replace part. This machine is alot of work to take appart and get back together correctly. Might want to bring to local vac shop. good luck.
