Aerus Model 152C- vacuum doesn't run

Aerus Model 152C- when I step on switch, the motor will run about a second or two, then shuts down, and the full bag light comes on. I have a new bag installed. Vacuum is about 5-6 years old, no problems with vacuum before this one today.

It probably does think you have a full bag.make sure you have it cleaned out and has a bag in there or it might be the sensor for the vacuum and is not working properly. contact your nearest electrolux vac store.or you are not using proper bags.

The motor in the power head ran at a higher pitch for a for 8 to 10 seconds then stopped. If I push the reset button the powerhead may or may not start or it may start and run for a few seconds. The brush...


Did you check the belt? A broken belt results in lower strain on the motor, causing it to run faster resulting in the faster speed and higher pitch. This could result in overheating, which will cause the motor to shut off.
If this isn't the problem you'll need to take it to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store for trouble-shooting and repair.

Aerus Electrolux: Don't Void Your Warranty


Aerus Electrolux Warranty
Aerus carries a great warranty on their machines, up to 20 years limited on top of the line models. However, there are some things that WILL void the warranty. The following are probably the most common.

Use of generic/made-to-fit bags. There’s a reason genuine bags are strongly advised for use with the Aerus and previous Electrolux vacuums, and it’s not just the strength of the bag. Fine dust particles will get through generic bags and result in a damaged motor.

Vacuuming wet carpet and liquids. Although you may try to make sure you don’t use your vacuum on liquids, children, other family members, and/or house cleaners won’t necessarily be as careful/caring. If kids notice the vacuum doesn’t work anymore, they may try to hide the evidence, thus you may not know about the problem.
Keep in mind that if you have your carpet steam cleaned, it can take a week or more to thoroughly dry. Vacuuming during this time will result in water/mud getting into the motor, ruining it almost immediately. A wet bag will also usually break open, sending contents through the motor. The motor will have to be replaced, but it won’t be covered by a warranty.

Dismantling of vacuum by unauthorized persons. If you’re having a problem with your vacuum, and you think it’s an easy, quick fix, don’t. You may get it fixed, but this will void the warranty for future problems. It’s simply not worth it.

Commercial use. The Aerus commercial upright is made for tougher work, but only carries a one year limited warranty. Even though your machine may have a longer, better warranty when used properly, using it as part of a cleaning or similar business voids the warranty. Solution; Don’t do it.

Aerus Electrolux does NOT warranty machines sold over the internet, such as on E-bay. Only those purchased through an authorized franchise or representative carry Aerus' warranty.

Be aware of your machines’ capabilities and warranties. An Aerus Electrolux owner has made a wise investment in a top-of-the-line home cleaning system and generally desires to maintain the system in prime working condition, with full benefits.

Contact Aerus for additional information. You can find a local shop/consultant through their home page: http://aerushome.com/

I replaced the bag full, but the bag full light stays on.


This is most likely due to a broken, worn, or clogged control valve assembly (CVA). You can try resetting the dial to the smallest dot, but I'm not sure that will work for you.
Detach hose from vacuum. Turn vacuum on. If it runs, place palm over intake port. If it shuts off, then it's the CVA. This is a shop repair and should only be done by an authorized Aerus Electrolux service tech. It may seem spendy, but they can also do a clean and service to remove any dust in the interior of the machine and motor. This will extend the life of your machine if there's much dust in it.
The cause of this problem is often due to using "made to fit" Electrolux bags rather than the genuine bags. Genuine bags will always have "Home Solutions" printed on top.

Central vacuum won't start even after depressing the reset button on the carpet sweeper. Hose and wand appear to be unclogged.


Is it only the power head that's not working, or the central vacuum itself? Disconnect wands from hose, turn on, and hold hand over hose end to check for suction. If none, go through first set of steps below.

If the vacuum:
1. Press reset button on vacuum.
2. Check circuit breaker at the circuit box to make sure it's ON.
3. Make sure the unit is plugged in completely.
4. Use a voltage tester to check for power at the outlet.
5. Check filter. If dirty rinse it with warm water, and allow to dry thoroughly. I strongly suggest having a second filter for use during drying, then just trade off using them.

If the vacuum still doesn't turn on, consider the following:]
Broken or worn out power switch in hose handle...Switch needs replaced.
Broken wire in hose...Replace hose.
Bad connection...Needs taken to an authorized Aerus service center for check and repair.

If the power nozzle (suction at end of hose, but power nozzle doesn't work:
1. Ensure the brush has been thoroughly cleaned of any hair, string, and other items that may have wrapped around it.
2. Power nozzle motor runs, but brush doesn't turn when vacuum is on...belt needs replaced.
3. Power nozzle motor does not run...All wiring, connections, and motor need to be checked.

If you can't determine the problem with the above helps, the entire machine, including hose, wands, and power nozzle, needs to be taken to an authorized Aerus service center for complete check.
If you don't know the location of the nearest Aerus Electrolux store, go to below site, type in zip code, and click on "view dealer list". They may also be able to send someone to pick it up.

The reset button on the "sweeper" is only to start the "sweeper" motor after it has shut off due to the brush getting jammed. It doesn't effect the vacuum operation.

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.

It runs for a couple of minutes shuts off then restarts 30 seconds later runs a couple of minutes and does this over and over


Most vacuum motors are protected from overheating by a thermal switch that resets after cooling down. Check for blockage in the hose,
power head or a full bag that would block cooling air from cooling the motor.

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.

Full Bag Shut-off Comes on With New Bag and No Hose


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….

Vacuum cleaner Lux model motor fails to start


This vacuum has a 10 year warranty on the motor, and 5 years on everything else. Look in the yellow pages under vacuums, for the AERUS dealer, that is the new name for the traditional Electrolux company.....

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.
