Clear solution here - the hose is blocked.
Using a blunt stick with blunt ends, remove the entire hose assembly and compact up with the stick. Wriggle the stick a couple of times and this should dislodge whatever has got stuck up the hose.

While vacuuming the red light for the bag of the vacuum came on and the vacuum stopped. The bag was no where near full so I replaced it with a new bag - same problem. It vaccumes for a minute or then stops...


I'm assuming this is the Epic 6500 or similar model.
Detach the hose, turn vacuum on. If it runs, place palm of hand against inport hole. If it shuts off the problem is with either the control valve setting or the control valve assembly itself.
For cvs, turn dial on top of vacuum all the way to the largest dot, and try above test again. If that doesn't work, then it's the CVA. It needs to be cleaned or replaced, which is an in shop job. Fro repair, take it to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store. I recommend a full clean and service to remove any dust/dirt from the motor, fan assembly, and other internal parts.

Another problem, which relates to the dial setting, is that fine dust will quickly clog the pores of the bag, resulting in the machine "thinking" the bag is full. Turning the dial to the proper setting helps get the bag fuller. The middle setting is the normal setting, and is for areas without fine dust and sand.

Lux 5000 put in new bag but when i turn on the


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.

Vacuum shuts off, bag light on, runs fine without hose connected


I'm not sure if I understand your problem completely, but if it is your full bag indicator that is coming on, even with a new bag, it's probably your control valve. These can be replaced by your dealer. When working correctly, the control valve should trigger the off switch when the differential pressure gets too great between the front of the bag housing and the area behind the bag. When it goes bad, it will indicate that you need to change your bag, even when you don't. Good Luck!!

Electrolux renaissance bag is light and vacuum stops and the change bag light comes on


Mine is doing the same thing, well it was. I sat it upright and it seems to be working fine... there is no blockage in the hose, the bag is clean... only thing I can't change is the filter. Maybe that is the problem, it doesn't seem really dirty though. I'm thinking perhaps the unit was too hot, hence having to be turned up right... makes it a little harder to move around but it is running at that is all I care. Hope this helps

Full bag system works properly, but doesn't reset easily


Either there is something wrong with your switch. Which it doesnt sound like it. Take it to your dealer or call another one it sounds like the control valve needs to be replaced. I am a dealer 1-866-966-9350.
