Stops vacuming quickly after new bag inserted

The vacuum works fine with a new bag in it, but quickly, if the bag is only a 1/4 full, it stops the suction action.

Any solutions?

Thank you,

Riccar vacume lite for bag is on when bag is not full

sometimes that can happen if the pores in the bag are clogged, as might happen if you have been vacuuming very fine dust like wallboard dust. this means that the bag might be functionally full, even though it still appears un-full. also, check the hose for a clog, because that can also give a false indication light.

Have a 6500 epic electrolux canister vac shuts off if you restrict the hose new bag not completly

Shake the bag if you've been cleaning up "fine" carpet freshener powder, drywall dust or anything extra fine as it clogs the pours of the bag and the machine stops thinking the bag is full. If this doesn't work, you'll have to have the control valve on top cleaned or replaced to correct the issue. Hope that helps!

While vacuuming the red light for the bag of the vacuum came on and the vacuum stopped. The bag was no where near full so I replaced it with a new bag - same problem. It vaccumes for a minute or then stops...

I'm assuming this is the Epic 6500 or similar model.
Detach the hose, turn vacuum on. If it runs, place palm of hand against inport hole. If it shuts off the problem is with either the control valve setting or the control valve assembly itself.
For cvs, turn dial on top of vacuum all the way to the largest dot, and try above test again. If that doesn't work, then it's the CVA. It needs to be cleaned or replaced, which is an in shop job. Fro repair, take it to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store. I recommend a full clean and service to remove any dust/dirt from the motor, fan assembly, and other internal parts.

Another problem, which relates to the dial setting, is that fine dust will quickly clog the pores of the bag, resulting in the machine "thinking" the bag is full. Turning the dial to the proper setting helps get the bag fuller. The middle setting is the normal setting, and is for areas without fine dust and sand.

My vacuum stops showing "bag full" even after I

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.

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.

Full bag system works properly, but doesn't reset easily

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.
