Question about Vacuums
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.
I have an older Regency Series 1500 Electrolux, Model 1515. The hose is clear, there's a new bag in vacuum and as soon as I get close to putting the hose on, the vacuum shuts down and the bag full light comes on. Just putting my hand close to the opening will do the same thing. I've tried with and without a filter, same thing happens. Looking for ideas! Thanks
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.
