Question about Kenmore 25614 / 25615 Progressive Bagged Canister Vacuum

1 Answer

Performance indicator light is on and suction is not strong

We have a canister vac and lately the performance indicator light is on and will not shut off. Since the light came on the suction power has dropped dramatically. We checked inside the hose and that was clear. We have also changed the bag and two filters but the problems continue. What else can we do?

    I have replaced the bag, and both the filters and the performance light is still on and there is no suction. What's wrong?

    Same as Mrs. Chief's problem... low suction, light on, new bag, filter okay... I'm going to try the broomstick solution...

    I have the same problem and I did as was suggested,and still no suction, indicator is still on. I tried to get the broom stick through the plastic hose part also but the broom stick won't go around the bend. I didn't want to force it as this is a new vacuum and is probably still under warranty.

    Same problem! Took apart EVERYTHING that would possibly come apart and cleaned it out. Light is on AND when I vacuum, its spitting the dirt back into the air! HELP!!!! Cannot afford a new one, and probably can't afford them to fix it!!!

You do have a clog! trust me. Check the wand and the yoke which is on the brush assembly. its the part that connects with the wand.
if thats not it then it has to be in the hose. the only way to get it out of the hose is to take one or both ends off and push a broom stick through it

Will run for a few minutes, then red light comes on canister an unit shuts off.


That's the thermal cut off circuit. If the motor gets to hot it trips and shuts it off. When it cools down it will turn on again but it is generally an indicator of one of the following; the cone filter needs changed or the inner filter ring that sits above the motor inside the unit is shot. One is an easy change the other requires dis-assembly, better carried out by a vac tech if you aren't comfortable taking it apart. In the meantime remove the cap out of the top of the vacuum, that will let it exhaust heat better but I strongly recommend getting that filter ring changed.

Electrolux 2100 vac dies when you attach hose even with new bag.


If the bag full light keeps coming on, you can first try adjusting the dial on top of the vacuum cleaner. If that does not work, then you need to change the control valve. This is an internal component of the canister and is directly below the dial. You will need to follow the instructions on a previous post to open the Electrolux plastic canister vacuum, and remove the bage cage. Once you remove the bage cage you can change the control valve, and this will solve your problem with the bag full indicator.

Lost suction


TOSS IT and forget it! I have never used a hand vac that worked that was worth the effort of turning it on .... I suggest they are all junk ... I found very few vacuum cleaners ... actually **** especially anything made by dirt devil ... I do have a bagless Bissell 6579-2 that I purchased 4 years ago at walmart for $49 ... It outperforms any vacuum I've ever used, including my worthless Shop-Vac that I paid a lot more for ... this Bissell vac SUCKS ... It could **** the barnacles from a steamship!

EL7020A ELECTROLUX VAC SHUTS OFF AFTER 10 MIN


The symptoms you describe are typical of a vac that has a blockage (hence poor suction). It cuts out because it's over-heating. You need to check the hose, the filters and anywhere else where something may have got stuck. Blockages are often caused by things like paper clips, but can be caused by something as apparently harmless as a piece of paper which gets stuck and then debris builds up behind it and causes a log-jam.

Performance indicator light


check to make sure the bag isn't being sucked into the air filter. open the access door where the bag is and you'll see the air filter at the bottom. to check, leave the door open while you would see the performance indicator light on, and then pull up the bag. this is one of many solutions i'm sure to the performance indicator problem.
