SOURCE: vacuum shuts off
if you want to fix this problem gently pry up the air flow control knob and look down at the plastic hose connected below the control valve. insert a small screwdriver and push off the hose from the valve. this disconnects the bag full indicator but will let the vacuum operate normally at full vacuum. you will change the bag when suction gets low. this will save you at least $100 repair bill.

Take the hose off and see if the light is still on or is it off. If it is off, then there is a clog in the hose. While the hose is off, drop something thru it and see if it comes out the other end. Press the retaining clip and the hose will disconnect. Separate the power head from the handle unit to make sure there is no clog by the brush roll. If it is still on then probably the computer controller, part # 5740ER has a problem. It is located in the power head.

The control valve has gone bad. This is the dial that you move on the top of the vacuum that has little indents on it.
You cannot do anything to bypass this problem from outside the machine.
This is not a repair that you can make yourself. You should look in your local yellow pages for Aerus (new name for electrolux) under vacuum cleaners, or go to www.aerusonline.com and find your local dealer. It is not too expensive to have fixed, it is a common issue with later model electroux vacuums.
You can try a test to see if it the valve. Remove the bag from the vacuum, look at the back of the bag holder near the motor, in the upper right or left depending on your model. You will see a very small hole 1/16 or an inch or so. Put a piece of tape of some sort to close off the hole. Replace the bag, turn on the vacuum, if it is a bad valve, the tape will override the bag full action, and the vacuum will run.
It is not advisable to run the vacuum this way since it will overheat, damage the thermostat, and can destroy the motor. A motor will cost over $200.00, the valve can be replaced for a lot less….

Underneath the machine is an inspection door to check for blockages. To open the door, press down the catch on the door.
Blockages in the neck can be checked by first lifting off the dust bag housing.
