I changed the bag and the air filter on my Electrolux Vacuum but the red light is still on stating that the bag needs to be changed. I have tried every way possible to put the new bag in but the red light still remains on. I don't know if there a restart button or something else I am not doing.

Re: I changed the bag and my vacuum won't turn on!!!
Open up the bag compartment, remove the bag. look in the lower right side or upper right side, you'll see a hole - make sure it is cleaned out no lint inside. this is a part of the differential system that stops the machine.

When switched on the vacuum goes through a self diagnosis test. Lights will come on for a while, then go out. If everything is okay, then the blue "Optimum" light will come on and stay on. If it turns of, a red indicator light should come on providing information on what's needed; i.e., filter or bag change needed.
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.
hi from uk may i suggest you remove cover and the new dust collection bag then if you look in the bag compartment there is a gauze filter fitted usually grey in colour ? at opposite end of compartment where bag connects this gauze filter is the outlet from bag compartment that the air exhales when vac is operating ie as vac **** up dust into bag the bag has microscopic holes that allow sucked up air and dust to collect but keeps dust from passing into bag chamber but allows air to escape thro holes and so enter bag chamber then escapes via the gauze filter to outside of vac hope you follow this ?? now if this filter is blocked/never been cleaned/changed ? then the symptoms of indicator bag full light will come on you can remove and wash filter if it is gauze typ? dry and refit then try vacuuming ? or replace filter they are not expensive usually in pack of 3 in uk DO NOT RUN VAC WITHOUT THIS FILTER FITTED ! or you will have some dust in the room ? hope this helps?
is there a filter in it if so clean the filter.try it without the bag in it.make sure the bag is in correctly.does the bag expand when you turn it on.you might have something caught up in the hose.take the hose off and blow througfh it.if you can't its clogged.also check the inlet where the dirt goes into the bag.the inlet might be clogged.please leave feedback
There is a reset button at the back of the powerhead. The user manual can be downloaded from the electrolux website, although I didn't find it very useful. There was some info on how to change the powerhead drive belt.
