Question about Electrolux Vacuums
Stopped working suddenly. All filters and bags are fine. Checked pressure pipes to the circuit board - all fine. These lights would normally indicate an overheating but non occurred. The lights would not go away and the motor would not turn on. Is the circuit board dead or the motor is dead? Any ideas appreciated....

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.

Without doubt this indicates that there's a blockage somewhere. The two easiest places to look are: 1. on the underside of the machine there's an inspection flap - check in there; 2. remove the flexible hose completely from the machine at both ends - check in the hose itself, and where it enters the machine near the handle . The only other place to look is where the base connects to the bag compartment - to check there, you need to separate those two parts by pressing the button at bottom front of bag compartment and pulling the base away (this can be difficult - four hands would be useful - but once you're pressing that button, nothing else other than friction is holding the parts together). Once the parts are separated, check every orifice you can see (the parts just push back together again).
I think that covers it. Good luck, and please remember to rate this response.

could be your retractable cord assembly's contacts..
push the power on while pulling out the cord. see if it tries to start.

If the bag full light keeps coming on, you can first try adjusting the dial on top of the vacuum cleaner. If that does not work, then you need to change the control valve. This is an internal component of the canister and is directly below the dial. You will need to follow the instructions on a previous post to open the Electrolux plastic canister vacuum, and remove the bage cage. Once you remove the bage cage you can change the control valve, and this will solve your problem with the bag full indicator.
