That simply means to check your bag. The symbol actually represents a full bag, so this is telling you it's time to change it.

When I turn it on it shuts down in about 3 seconds, bag is empty, no blockages?


Sounds like a bad handle assembly. Unfortunately these are known for being quirky when the circuit board goes bad. There's nothing else to go wrong with the rest of the unit. Here's the part and number. Good Luck

The unit comes on and the exhaust blows out however no suction at all. l placed a wet vac on the unit where the bag goes and all of the outlets pull some air. The unit is the cv350. Thanks.


there would be 2 things potentially wrong here...

1) the black rubber gasket is missing off the body where the pail goes onto the machine. If that is missing there will be no suction.

2) This is a little more complex but will also lead to the same problem. up above where the bag goes there, is a filter. It could be clogged, but if you are getting a lot of air blowing out of the unit, I think it is more the rubber gasket between the motor and the body. You can check for this by looking behind the little motor pre-filter there (if it is even there) and check the motor intake for the unit. It is probably blocked or partially blocked with the motor gasket. To fix this you will need some weather stripping or another motor gasket.

Good luck.

13 yr Electrlux.Cuts off if hose plugs in.Says Bag Full-bag empty


This sounds like the valve assembly (full bag control) is faulty or one ov the tubes is clogged. You will have to take it to the shop.

sounds like you have the plastic bodied canister. the controll valve inside is bad. I usually just disconnect those to avoid future problems. you may want to take the vacuum to a repair shop though becuase they are a pain to get apart and get back in one piece.

Hoover hygiene full bag light is on but the bag is empty


hi,

theres other filters that may be dirty and need to be washed or replaced below or around the bag, study the owners manual for alternate filter locations, basically the machine isnt getting the airflow it needs and is letting you know. The hepa filter is the most expensive, try and run the vac without it and see if the light goes out. Its okay to run it without but I suggest vacumming then dusting, not the other way around..
replace it as soon as possible

Emptying the bag


Changing the paper bag...Just rotate the cardboard and pull until it comes off of the fill tube. Note the tabs on the fill tube top and the notches in the cut out circle in the cardboard on the paper bag when reassembling. Try this link for free shampooer directions.....manuals also available.
