Question about Electrolux Lux 7000 Bagged Canister Vacuum
Having hard time to open where the roller are located to see about the problem. I unscewed but can't get the plactis to come off. Was able to pull off the black hose and cleaned in there. I t sounds like something is beating inside.
Here is the manual ,if you slid the bumper strip off the one thats marked number 6 the cylinder should come apart, the bumper strip holds it all together..

It appears you have a bad control valve. My suggestion is to take it to your nearest Aerus dealer and have them replace it for you. You can find them by going to aerusonline.com and use their dealer locater. It shouldn't cost much to replace. You can disable it, but I don't suggest it. It is in place to protect you motor, and assuming you bought this machine new, you are aware of how much they cost. If you can't find a dealer locally, call the closest one and they may ship you the part. If you have to do it yourself, here is how. Open the front of the canister and remove the bag. As you are looking at the front of the unit, there are two vinyl covered strips that run the length of the unit. Pull forward on these strips and then pull out so that the vinyl separates from the plastic underneath. Now grab the plastic strip with a pair of needle nose pliers and pull towards the front of the canister. These can be tough if the machine has never been opened up before, but pull as hard as you need to, to slide the strip out. Once both strips are out, turn the machine over, pull out on the sides of the bottom of the unit, and lift up. The bottom should come off relatively easily, and everything will be exposed. The control valve rests under the bag housing, since the machine is now upside down. Pull the bag housing out, and the control valve will be right there. It's circular with vacuum lines connected to it. Just pull it out and move the vacuum lines to the new one, but be sure you get them in the right position!. It won't work if you don't. I hope this helps. Good Luck!!

There is an area on the back of the tank where you will see lines, put your thumb there and pull the top half of the tank towards yourself. That should open the machine so you can replace your after filter.

The filter for your Electrolux 2100 is located on the rear top of the machine. It is covered by a plastic grill. You simply place your finger in the rear of the plastic grill, push the tab in slightly and lift the grill up to expose the filter. The filter is approximately 4" by 6". It is NOT washable. Most Vac Shops sell replacement filters in addition to them being available at the local Electrolux distributor.

Turn the knob on the top of the vacuum all the way to the right.I had the same problem and that fixed it.

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.
