Im going to guess you have an Electrolux Tank. the control valve inside probably went bad. normally i just disconnect it. Do no try to take it apart if you don't know what your doing. take it to a vacuum shop.

My vacuum turns on for a second and shuts off. I have replaced the bag and filter, and it still happens. The replace bag light turns on after I do this.


1. Detach the hose and turn on. If it runs, place hand over opening. If it shuts off, the control valve assembly is dirty or worn out and needs cleaned/replaced. This is a job that should be done by an authorized Aerus Electrolux service tech. It's most commonly caused by use of "made-to-fit Electrolux" bags, rather than the genuine bags made by Home Solutions.

2. If the vacuum keeps running after detaching hose and placing hand over in port, then check the hose. Drop a coin or similar small item through the hose. If it doesn't go through, there's a clog. It will probably be at the bend of the handle. Plug hose into exhaust port and turn vacuum on. Make sure the other end of the hose is in a bag to catch the dirt and stuff coming out. If you have problems, it's easily removed by a service tech.

The light on the top of the vaccum stays light and


You have a Electrolux, not a Guardian though, right? The light you are talking about is the bag full indicator. I know your bag is not full, so, try this. The knob on the top of the cleaner is a fine adjustment designed to let the bag fill up in different conditions, (dirt types) . So...turn the dial down to setting 2. Try it again. Did it work? If so, this is your adjustment . No need to ever adjust it agin. It is NOT the suction control. If this did not fix ya (haha) then, your adjustment diaphragm is bad and you will have to break down and bring it to Aerus(Electrolux) for a repair. I hope this info was helpful, if so, please leave feedback, it helps my rating, Thanks, Rene(The Vacuum Doctor)

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.

Electrolux Epic 6500SR Full Bag sensor working, Does not Reset properly


The problem was a sticking switch that was not being reset. The vacuum on/off switch mechanism is comprised of two switches. One is the main switch that turns the vacuum on and off. The second is a shut off switch that gets tripped when the full bag sensor is engaged. This second switch is supposed to get reset when you push the on/off switch on the outside of the machine. The full bag shutoff switch was stiff and it, therefore, was taking a couple of presses of the on/off switch to move the shutoff switch back into the running position.

Full bag system works properly, but doesn't reset easily


Either there is something wrong with your switch. Which it doesnt sound like it. Take it to your dealer or call another one it sounds like the control valve needs to be replaced. I am a dealer 1-866-966-9350.
