I bought new C type bags at Sears but my Lux 5000 refuses to run

I bought new bags at Sears but my Lux 5000 just dies the moment I start it. The hose is completely clear. I cut the four sides out of the top of one of the bags and when I put it into the machine, it runs fine!

The unit will run until you attach tge hose then it shuts off


Hi,
With a new bag in the compartment, Turn the dial on the top of the vacuum all the way in the opposite direction and try it again. If it still persists, the control valve that you're turning most likely needs cleaned or replaced. I can help with that.
Hope it helps. amerivac4u@yahoo.com

LUX RENAISSANCE WONT TURN ON. HOSE CONTROL BAG LIGHT IS ON


Could be the board in the handle but I found that a lot of the times the contacts where the handle meets the hose just need to be cleaned. It could also be a clogged hose but I'd say it's one of the other two.

Vacuum cleaner Lux model motor fails to start


This vacuum has a 10 year warranty on the motor, and 5 years on everything else. Look in the yellow pages under vacuums, for the AERUS dealer, that is the new name for the traditional Electrolux company.....

Vacuum wont run


THE BEST SOLUTION IS TO NEVER BUY A SEARS VACUUM AGAIN. THEY DO NOT LAST AND WARRANTY AND REPAIRS ARE TOO EXSPENSIVE! I BOUGHT THREE OVER TEH YEARS, AND NOW AS YOU KNOW, THREE STRIKES AND SEARS IS OUT!!!!!

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.

Clear solution here - the hose is blocked.
Using a blunt stick with blunt ends, remove the entire hose assembly and compact up with the stick. Wriggle the stick a couple of times and this should dislodge whatever has got stuck up the hose. 
Dont forget to rate, thanks,
