Hi, you very likely have a defective control valve under the dial on top of the vac , or a kink or blockage in the tiny pressure hose that feeds the air from the throat of the vac or the back of the bag chamber against the two sides of the rubber diaphragm inside the valve.
You can inspect the tiny hose ports for blockage and clean them with a fine piece of wire. To access the control valve you will open the bag chamber door and slide the bumpers forward with their internal locking keys with a pair of pliers. Once removed the body will open like a **** shell front to back. The control valve will likely have a crack in its threading and can only be replaced with a genuine part available at an AERUS Electrolux store. The fix is a most often a new valve.
This vac is the RUBIKS cube of all vacs. It reassembles with ease when all wiring and tabs are perfectly aligned, so open slowly,upside down , wheels up , mark your wiring and take your time reassembling.
When it all clicks EASILY together without the bumpers, you have it done right

Select your model from the "older models" listing..

Take care

I had this same problem with a 6500. Sheikhtijani's solution along with http://www.fixya.com/support/t1470586-need_service_manual_electrolux_6500 gave me the information to fix it. My actual problem was that the vinyl air hose leading from the throat to the control valve is so old that it slips right off of the control valve connector. I will be replacing that hose.
The measurements I made of the clear vinyl hose were: Outer diameter = 7.6 mm Inner diameter = 4.86 mm length = 52.7 cm

Hi,
Check your hose you have something stuck in the hose...stretch it out straight and run something through it to push out whatever is stuck in there...

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.

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.

Electrolux upright bag light stays on even when bag is not full


Once you change the bag, be sure to turn the machine off and back on to clear the fault. If it is the full bag light that is on, and not the "?" light, and you have a new bag in place, then you probably have a bad control valve. I would suggest finding the closest Aerus (formerly Electrolux) dealer and having them change it. It shouldn't be too expensive. If you have the "?" light illuminated, the bag probably isn't pressing the actuator like it should. When placing the new bag into the machine, be sure the bag top presses the small button in the lower right hand corner. Good Luck!

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.

RENAISSANCE HOSE/VAC


THE RENAISSANCE IS KNOWN FOR HAVING PROBLEMS WITH THE CIRCUIT BOARD IN THE HANDLE.YOU'LL NOTICE THAT MODELS THAT CAME AFTER THAT HAD SLIDING SWITCHES. UNFORTUNATELY THE NEW HOSE DESIGN WON'T WORK ON YOUR MACHINE BECAUSE THE CIRCUIT BOARD INSIDE THE MACHINE WAS CHANGED TOO.AERUS MAY OR MAY NOT STILL MAKE THE PARTS YOU NEED. OTHER WISE LOOK ON E-BAY FOR A NEW HOSE.
ELECTROLUX FOOLISHLY REPLACED IT'S FLAGSHIP STEEL MACHINE WITH THIS DESIGN...A FEW YEARS LATER ALL THEY HAD WORTH SELLING WAS THEIR NAME, HENCE THE NEW NAME AERUS.

Same Shut Off Problem as Hamster71


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.
