You could have a clogged hose, afterfilter, or worn/broken control valve assembly.
1. To check the filter, press the tab located at the bottom of the tool holder/air diffuser. See photo below. Lift air diffuser. There may or not be a filter here. If there is, remove it, then check machine operation.

2. Disconnect hose form canister. Turn on machine. Place hand over intake. If the machine turns off during this process, the control valve assembly is broken or worn out. Replacement needs to be done at an authorized Aerus franchise service center.

3. To check the hose, disconnect both ends. Drop a marble or similar size item in one end and allow to roll out the other. If it doesn't, the hose is clogged. This will cause the machine to shut off as well.

    Roger, is replacing control valve something that I could do? Could you please explain how a DIYer could do this? My vacuum cleaner exhibits the behavior you described in number 2. I don't have a clogged hose but attaching the hose to the unit turns the machine off.

    No. The machine has to be disassembled to get tothe control valve. This is not a job for a "weekend warrior." This should be done by an authorized Aerus/Electrolux repair person.

SOURCE: Vaccum cleaner belt change

If you've put a new belt on and you still are getting a rubber smell, then odds are that your agitator (the rotating brush) is not turning freely, and that means either (a) you need to remove the end caps and remove any hair / debris that is under those end caps, or (2) the bearing(s) of the agitator are bad. Depending on the model of the Sharp (which was not provided), you may be able to order just the defective bearings and replace them (or take the agitator to a vacuum shop to have them do it), or you can (or may need to) order the agitator assembly complete.

Vacuum cleaner does not work


most upright vaccums have a reset button at lower rear area of the vaccum. operates similar to gfi plug reset, push button back in usually with small screwdriver. is your debris bag to full? power brush jammed with debris? hose plugged? this will cause motor to over heat and in turn kick out reset button. always unplug power cord before putting fingers in areas where moving parts are!!

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.

Have the cannister 6500 SP just changed all filters but when I start the vaccum it shuts itself back off and the full bag indicator light comes on?


It sounds like the valve assembly (full bag control) is faulty. Threr are two O rings inside of it and the plactic holding the bottom one has broken. You'll have to take it to the shop.

Just powered itself off


It will shut off if your bag is full. If you are cleaning up fine dust, it will give a false bag full indication. Take the bag out and carefully, shake it down to get the dust out of the filter layers inside. This will let more air flow through the sensor.

Most Hoovers if you turn the vac over, remove the plate covering the brush roll, then you can get to the belt and brushroll.
