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.

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.

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.

Without doubt this indicates that there's a blockage somewhere. The two easiest places to look are: 1. on the underside of the machine there's an inspection flap - check in there; 2. remove the flexible hose completely from the machine at both ends - check in the hose itself, and where it enters the machine near the handle . The only other place to look is where the base connects to the bag compartment - to check there, you need to separate those two parts by pressing the button at bottom front of bag compartment and pulling the base away (this can be difficult - four hands would be useful - but once you're pressing that button, nothing else other than friction is holding the parts together). Once the parts are separated, check every orifice you can see (the parts just push back together again).
I think that covers it. Good luck, and please remember to rate this response.

This is most probably due to a worn out or clogged Control Valve Assembly.
Detach the hose and see if it runs. If it does, place hand over hole. If it shuts off, CVA is probably the cause. A clogged CVA is generally due to using generic/made-to-fit bags. Genuine bags have "Home Solutions" printed on them.
You can try turning the dial all the way to the large dot, then try to run the vacuum.
If it is the CVA, you'll need to take it to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store and have their service tech repair or replace the part. I recommend a service and clean of the vacuum at the same time. This will extend the life of the vacuum.

Testimonial: "Super reply! Thanks for specific info. I detached the hose and (dang it) had the same problem. The bags are genuine, so it looks like a dealer repair."
