Not sure what a bacteria smell is perhaps you mean a mildew type smell.
If you have picked up something wet, start at the front of the vac and work your way to the exhaust.Change the front most filter first. Baking soda may help to eliminate some of the odor.
Personally as an allergy suffer, which you may be given the Brand I would remove all and let them and the tank air outside. Meanwhile install a fresh set.

SOURCE: red when bag is not full
The red light will also come on when there is a blockage in the pipes leading to the bag compartment. To test that the light is working correctly, you can unplug the flexible hose from the top of the bag compartment then switch the machine on. The red light should be off, but will come on if you block the hole with your hand. If that test shows the light is working, you need to search for a blockage - which is most likely to be in the flexible hose, but can be in the rigid plastic tube or in the base of the machine (turn it over and look in the little trap-door). Clearing a blockage from the hose can be difficult - you are more likely to be successful if you can devise a way to pull it out rather than trying to push it (as with a broom handle, for example), because pushing may just compact it. Good luck!
