Open and check for belt damage. Also make sre there isn't debris causing this error.

Your not gonna find a belt because the belts on these units are not designed to be replaced by the consumer and would need to go to a service station

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.
