Question about Electrolux Lux 7000 Bagged Canister Vacuum

1 Answer

Same Shut Off Problem as Hamster71

I have the same model LUX7000.  My machine is doing exactly the same thing.  It shuts off and indictates the bag is full when it is brand new.  The top filter (HEPA) is in place and clean.  I have tried running the vacuum without that filter and it still does the same thing.  I have blown everything with a high presure air hose, I have vacuumed the unit with a shop vac and tried everything I can without success.  One thing I noticed is when the knob on the top that adjusts how sensitive it is to the size of particles before the machine shuts down is set lower than the most fine setting,  the machine even shuts off more quickley.  The only way to get it to run at all is to make that setting for the finest particle setting.

What does the key light stand for on lux7000 canister vaccuum?


The light on the top of the 7000 that represents a "key" as you state it, is actually a "No Bag" light. That means to check the bag compartment for a bag. Replace if you do not see one. Close the door, push the start button, and voila....it will start. If it doesn't , make sure the bag top (cardboard) is flush inside. It may be missing the bag switch. Hope that helps!

S7000 Just shuts off...


It's shutting down due to overheating to protect the motor ( and to prevent a fire! ). Running it and feeling around the motor to see if it's gotten hot would be the first thing I'd check. If the vacuum is new and giving you these problems, I'd return it to the store you bought it from and see what they'll do about it..there may have been a recall you aren't aware of.

When you put your hand over suction it shuts off and the bag light goes on it acts like the bag is full but its aq brand new bag


So what's the problem? Stop blocking the suction with your hand! The machine can't tell the difference between a blockage caused by your hand and a blockage caused by a full bag. Just be grateful that you've got a machine with such good protection.

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.

With a new bag -after turning vacuum on, it shuts down


This vac is prone to a control valve failure with the exact symptoms you describe. There is a dial valve on top of the machine designed to regulate how full the bag will get. The valve which sits underneath the dial on the vac likely has a broken plunger and will need to be replaced. Take it to an AERUS Electrolux dealer / shop for an experienced tech to work on.

Can't get my lux7000 to run


Make sure the bag is in place correctly. The question mark light indicates that there isn't a bag in the machine. There is a small button in the front of the bag housing that is depressed by the cardboard top of the bag. I think it is located in the bottom right hand of the bag housing if you are facing the front of the machine. Make sure the bag is depressing this actuator when the front of the machine is closed. If it is, it may be an internal problem with the switch. Good Luck!!

Same Shut Off Problem as Hamster71


The part that you call the particle size sensetivity adjuster is bad. There are 2 seals in the assembly, the lower seal is slipping out of place because the plastic lip which keeps it in place is broken. Split housings and replace part. This machine is alot of work to take appart and get back together correctly. Might want to bring to local vac shop. good luck.
