The problem is that Electrolux sold a portion of the company to Eureeka, so the Electrolux you are familiar with is under the name Aerus-Electrolux. Aerus vacuums are still produced with the same high quality as always, and still are made in the USA!!!

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Electrolux 2000 canister vacuum cleaner

The first two solutions are liars!!! The way to open an Electrolux LE canister vacuum is to use a screwdriver or drift punch and hammer to gently tap the two bumpers on the sides of the vacuum towards the opening end (where the bag goes in). The bumpers will slide off and then the clamshell case will open lengthwise. There is NO maze of vacuum hoses or wires inside. I just repaired my own vacuum and am speaking of experience.

Rug beater does not work, vacuum does I just was vacuuming the rug and it suddenly stopped, beater will not turn on.


The beater bar will turn itself off if something became lodged in the brushbar area - it turns itself off so that it doesn't cause any further damage. If this is the case, recline the machine, turn it on and press the gray button next to the red power button. This is the brushbar's ON/OFF switch. If that doesn't solve the problem, call the Dyson helpline for further assistance.

Electrolux Canister - Stops working after 1-2...
Our vac works for a short time, then shuts off and makes clicking noise as if trying to restart again. Works after cooling for a while but for another very short time. Your suggestion on fix would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks


I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure
I would advise that it could be a thermal switch or a regular switch that the thermal switch is over heating and needs replacement – there are small hoses in the door section that could have been pinched or kinked and it stopping the air flow from the vacuum – also check for a clogged or plugged vacuum hose, a full vacuum bag or a dirty vacuum filter. Check the thermal switch or reg switch or the hoses in the door. Or feel free to contact your local vacuum dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or call the factory @ the phone number listed below:
