SOURCE: Electrolux model 2100 shuts off with slightest suction blockage

This is exactly the symptom you would expect from a defective bag control valve. The actual control valve sits under the dial on top of the vac and often cracks internally. It can be replaced in about 15 minutes by a good tech with genuine parts from AERUS Elctrolux dealer or repair center.
You can open the vac front to rear like a **** shell by sliding the bumpers out the front with the bag door open, however you must be careful not to disturb the wiring harness and to mark wiring locations. The body must be carefully realigned for closure. If it is not perfect you will not be able to slide the bumpers back in.

SOURCE: Electrolux #1521 Canister Vacuum won't stay closed

hi from uk your problem with the canister cover/door coming off whilst vaccing ? you have renewed bag ? ok but there is a filter/gauze also inside the canister where bag is fitted if you check inside you should see the filter at opposite end from where bag is secured it is usually fitted behind a slotted pull out plastic gate ? this filter/gauze is to allow air out of canister when vaccing and the filter traps any dust that may accumulate inside the canister case so the dust does not get blown out to atmosphere/rooms SO if this filter is clogged it will not allow vacced air to escape out of canister so result is build up of pressure within cylinder and eventually cover flips open ! so for now you can remove filter/gauze and wash then dry refit this will allow air to escape from canister but still retain dust particles from escaping as it is designed for however may i suggest you replace filter when convenient ? all above is on assuming that the latch on cover is working ok and not now damaged ? hope this helps best wishes

SOURCE: electrolux canister special edition problem

If this canister has a "bag full" light and auto shutoff, there is an internal diaphragm switch controlled by a dial on top of the vac. Set the dial for medium setting. Install a fresh bag and test again.
There is a pinhole in the throat of the vac which allows air to flow through a tube to the diaphragm. Check to see that it is not blocked with a grain of sand. There is a second pin hole in the corner of the bag chamber check there as well for blockage. If this vac is less than 20 years old the control valve for the diaphragm often cracks and needs to be replaced. You would access it by peeling ( like a banana) the soft rubber bumpers off the side of the vac and sliding the locking keys underneath the bumper out the front end of the vac when the bag door is open.Then gently popping the housing apart from FRONT to back. DO NOT try to pry the back housing off. Caution, this is normally performed on a cradle in a repair shop designed to hold all the components in place

Bag full vacuum shut off. Is there a reset


You didn't mention the model, but with several Electrolux canister models, I'd say there's probably a problem with the control valve assembly inside the canister. This would need to be repaired at an authorized Aerus Electrolux store. If unsure where the nearest store is, use this link to locate one:

The tip on the following link covers other possible causes.

Bag full switch is bad


I assume this is an Electrolux Canister with long narrow body and a dial control on top for adjusting the bag fill level.. Please confirm model and name on canister, as in LE, Ambassador, Renaissance, etc.
If this is a plastic bodied unit with 2 side bumpers the body opens like a **** shell after sliding the bumpers out the front. The normal cause is a failed control valve under the dial at the top center of the vac. The failed part can only be replaced, not serviced and can purchased through an AERUS Electrolux repair center. Please confirm and I can wa;lk you through the process if required

Powerhead Keeps Shutting Off


Open up the power head and check the toothed corners where the power head sits - it sounds like thread has caught up at the sides which can only be removed by opening up the powerhead to clean it.
