SOURCE: Electrolux model LX vacuum- Problem, ejects empty

The vacuum is doing exactly what it is suppossed to do, on this model, the bag will eject when the suction is reduced due to the pores in the bag becoming clogged by dirt, dust, or fine powder. Try a NEW bag, and **** up less superfine dust such as baby powder or plaster dust that immediately clog the bag. Next, on later model LX's on the bottom of the canister near the bag door is a dial, setting the dial to a higher number will reduce the sensitivity of this automatic bag ejection operation and will allow the vacuum to continue to run until the bag is even more clogged, however, running the vacuum with a fully clogged bag causes the motor to overheat and reduces suction and damages the vacuum. If you have an early model LX, there may have been a "basement and attic" key mounted to the bottom, but often are lost by now and it is used to make such an adjustment. The 1952 model LX was the first with the diaphram automatic bag ejection system and the problem of the bag ejecting too soon was common. An improvement on the model LXI added the control dial with numbers 1 to 6 on it to adjust the sensitivity. I am looking up more info on adjusting a model without the dial because I just picked one up at an estate sale a few days ago and I've heard (some time ago) that the early ones with no dial had a "basement and attic" key that snapped to the bottom of the cleaner to make this adjustment, not sure where it is though and the one I have does not seem to have the key. Will let you know more if I find it! Thanks, I am an Electrolux fan and will use nothing else because I have used so many vacuums but love the convenience of Electrolux design and durability. They have been in my family since my grandparents came to America and are simply the best in my opinion.

Electrolux Vacuum Renaissance Power head brush won't turn


if it is making a humming sound but not turning you belt is broken, if it is not check the reset switch (little res button) if that doesnt work check the connections between the cord of the powerhead and the wand, the wand and the hose, and the hose and the vacuum
give the hose itself a good look over sometimes the wires up by the grip break in the casing

We have two of these vacuums and both of them have experienced the same problems. First the floor heighth adjustment doesn't work and now neither one will pick up on either carpet or floor when in the...


Did you check the powerhead for obstructions? With a bend in the tube just below where the hose connects, this is a common spot for clogs. To check, detach hose and drop a coin in the hole. If it doesn't drop through, a blockage is present. Use the handle of a wooden spoon to push clog back through to brush. It can be removed with long-nose pliers from there.
For height adjustment, check for debris that may be preventing the nozzle from raising and lowering. There may be something inside the powerhead preventing it as well.
The manual can be found at the following site. On the left side of the page, under the image, click on the Use and Care Manual button.

Height adjustment


You'll have to turn the upright to its side to show the sole plate where the rolling brush is. Check where the front wheels are located and ensure there is no blockage obstructing the rotary dial. Sometimes the spring mechanisms can work themselves loose. 
Inevitably you'll have to remove the sole plate and/or the rotary dial which may be screwed down. If it has cracked then you may have to seek a replacement. 
Dont forget to rate this suggestion.
