1 Answer

3 lights show up on the top of my vacuum and the center one I don't know what it stands for. Plus, the vacuum seems to be getting too hot.


The one that looks like a cord plug lights up when the vacuum is plugged in and indicates it's getting power.
The one that looks like a thermometer lights up when the vacuum is overheating, and indicates there's probably a clog in the hose or power nozzle behind the brush.
The next one indicates there is no bag in the vacuum. Machine will not run.
The last one indicates the bag is full and needs to be changed. A full bag or clogged pores will result in overheating, however the vacuum automatically turns off when this happens to protect the motor.
It sounds like you need to replace the bag. If you still have problems, it's probably due to an internal part called a control valve assembly. That is an in shop repair, and the vacuum needs to be taken to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store for service. This is most often due to "made to fit" bags being used instead of "genuine" bags. In this case the motor and interior of the machine need to be cleaned as well. Dirt, even fine dust, in the motor will shorten the life of the motor dramatically.

Bag showing as full when a new bag is in and all hoses unblocked


Hi There,

So when this light is displaying, it's says "Bag Full or Clog" on the indicator. If you have changed the bag, and it's still showing this light, it means that you either have a clog in the vacuum, or your filters are dirty, which is reducing the suction and making the machine think that your bag is full. If your machine is actually cutting off, this indicates that your machine is definitely clogged, or something is stuck inside which is causing the motor to not get air flow, and cauing the machine to over heat. When it shuts off like this, it's a protection system that prevents any damage from happening to the motor when it can't breathe and starts to overheat.

My guess is that there is probably a clog in the machine somewhere, or the filters are dirty. Here's what you may do to diagnosis the machine, and try to isolate the clog to find out where it is in the vacuum.

Step 1. Remove the hose and wand assembly from the vacuum cleaner completely. You may do this by pressing the two tabs on the end of the hose that plugs into the vacuum cleaner:


cca2760.jpg
With the hose and the wand removed from the vacuum, it should look like this:

b7c34c5.jpg
Step 2. Now turn the vacuum cleaner on and check to see if the red light comes on while the hose and the wand have been removed. If the light comes on, then this indicates that your filter is dirty (or the PCB electric board is bad if the filter is clean) and needs to be replaced.

Step 2. Re-attach the hose and wand back on the vacuum, but just the end of the hose that goes into the vacuum cleaner, leave the wand out of the vacuum cleaner so it looks like this:


db25806.jpg
Turn the machine on now as if you were using the attachment hose to clean corners or above the floor and see if the red light comes on here. Also listen to the noise the motor makes and see if the noise changes when you put the hose back on the vacuum cleaner. If the red light appears, or if the motor makes a higher pitched noise now, then this indicates that you have a clog in your hose or wand. You may verify this by remove the hose again from the vacuum, and also removing the wand from the hose by pressing the hose release button on the wand and pulling the hose out of the wand. Look down both of the parts and see if you can see thru both sides. If you're not able to see light through the hose, or the wand, this indicates this is where the clog is. You may take a metal clothes hanger, and try removing the clog this way.

Step 3. If the red light did not display with the wand not inserted into the vacuum, put the wand back into the vacuum cleaner as if you were vacuuming the floors:


1a089d0.jpg
Turn the machine on, and see if the red light comes on in this position. If the light does come on, then this indicates that you have a clog in the bottom of the vacuum cleaner. To check and see the clog in the bottom of the machine, I find it easiest to remove the upper bag housing from the vacuum cleaner completely so you're just looking at the bottom power nozzle of the vacuum cleaner. There's a button at the bottom of the machine that is either a grey, or yellow color depending on what color your vacuum is. Simply press this button in, and lift upwards on the handle or the bag housing at the same time:


2b91587.jpg
Step 4. After the bag housing has been removed, turn the lower part of the vacuum upside down so the brushes are facing upwards. There's a little orange flap on the bottom of the machine that is actually a clog port. Almost every time there is a clog in a Sebo, this is where I typically find the clog. Open up this orange colored trap door, and look to see if you can see any obstruction or clog underneath of here:


08da832.jpg
Step 5. You may rotate the neck of the power nozzle part towards you so that you may look inside to see if you see any obstructions inside:

c034305.jpg
Step 5. You may also remove the brushes from the vacuum and look behind the brushes at the suction port, or the area where the suction goes through the vacuum to see if you see anything obstructing the suction here.

These are really the only places that the Sebo can get clogged. If you checked all of these areas, and the red light is still displaying, this means that your PC Board that controls this indicator has gone bad, and needs to be replaced. If this is the case, please just reply to this repair using the comment field, and I'll be more then happy to help you through the replacement of replacing the PCB Board.

I hope this answer was helpful to you, and you were able to find the clog and fix the problem.

The red light on my electrolux vacuum comes on and cuts power.


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.

After we change the bag, it still gives us a red light


Greetings,

The bag full indicator on most vacuum cleaners is not completley fool proof. Most vacuums will just register a loss of suction, and they will then illuminate the bag full indicator, whether or not the bag is full.

If you've changed the bag, and the machine is still indicating a full bag, then this could mean one of two things.

1. Dirty Filter. According to the part diagram for your vacuum, there is a filter underneath of the vacuum cleaner bag (Bissell Part Number
203-1013) that is there to protect anything from getting into the motor. Since the filter is located before the motor, most refer to this as a pre-motor filter. Sometimes if this filter is really dirty, it can cause the vacuum to loose suction, which will also cause the bag full indicator to incorrectly display. Simply clean this filter by running it under warm water, then allow it to completely dry before replacing it in the vacuum. While the filter is out of the vacuum you can turn it back on and test to see if the light is off now that the filter is out. If the light goes off, then you have found the problem! If the bag full indicator is still on, please see the next possible problem.

2. Clog In the Vacuum. If the vacuum was run with a full bag, and when you removed the bag, the bag was completely jammed full, then your vacuum cleaner may be clogged somewhere. When the bag is packed full of dirt, the vacuum continues to try and put more and more dirt in the bag, even if it's full. Sometimes the dirt will even start accumulating inside the hose as it has no other place to go. The first place you should check is the hole that you connect the bag to. Remove the new bag that you installed and examine the hole that the bag connects to inside the vacuum. Can you see anything stuck here? If yes, do your best to try and dislodge it. If you're not able to visibly see anything here, your clog may be inside the hose, or even in the base of the vacuum.

If you have another vacuum cleaner this will really help you in clearing the clog. With the other vacuum, take the suction hose of the good vacuum, and connect it to the hose on your Bissell (still while the bag is removed, and the bag housing door is open). When you connect the hose of the other vacuum, can you hear a difference in the motor? Does the motor start running at a higher pitch when it's connected to your Bissell? If yes, then you've narrowed it down to a clog in your hose. If you can feel suction from the other vacuum through the hole that the bag connects onto, and the good vacuum's motor doesn't change noise when connected to the Bissell, then your clog is in the bottom section of the vacuum. You can sometimes stretch out the hose of the Bissell while the other vacuum is attached, and this will dislodge the clog.

If you don't have another vacuum, simply remove the hose from the Bissell completely. I believe that there maybe 2 screws that hold this hose onto the back of your Bissell, simply remove these two screws, and remove the hose. An easy way you can clear clogs is to take the hose outside, and use a water hose that has a pressurized nozzle on it, and spray down the hose while holding the hose of your Bissell vertically to allow gravity to work its magic. You can also stretch out the hose of the Bissell to get maximum benefit of gravity and the water.

If the clog is in the lower part of the vacuum, it is usually right at the suction port behind the roller brush. This is the most narrow part of the vacuums suction intake in the lower part of the vacuum, and is prone to clogs. Simply remove the four screws on the bottom of your Bissell to remove the bottom plate. Look behind the roller brush to where the suction port is to see if you can see any clogged debris.

If this doesn't help clear your clog, or fix the bag full indicator, I'd really like to try and diagnosis this further with you. Please just use the Clarification Request or add a comment and explain what happend after trying these things I mentioned above. I'll be more then happy to try and assist your further. I really hope that this was helpful to you. If you found this helpful, please be kind and rate my repair by clicking the thumbs up icon in the review.

Thank you very much,

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.

'Bag Full' light indicates at 1/3 bag


The sensor is a small hole into the vacuum chamber. It moves the alert system as vacuum inside the unit builds up.

The filtration, built into the bag, is getting filled up and creating a higher vacuum inside the unit, giving a false reading. The only ways to eliminate this are to give the bag a shake to clear some of the dirt out of the filter, try to pick up coarser dirt first or buy generic bags-without the filtration.

Where is the reset button on the electolux 2100


There is no reset button on the 2100. If it shuts down, the indicator lights will tell you why. If it has been overheated, there is a self-resetting switch which will shut the motor down and the light will come on to indicate that particular problem. When you turn the machine off and then back on, it should re-start provided you have given the motor ample time to cool down. This will not solve the problem as to why it overheated in the first place. There are also lights and auto-switches that will control full bag and no bag. The machine will not run with no bag and a full bag will cause it to run for a few seconds and shut off.
