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.

Check bag light on and bag fine. also seems like it is shooting stuff out of vent on top


Hi!, It's Jim with Crucial Vacuum,

Often times when your vacuums bag light remains on even after installing a new bag there is an air flow problem within your vacuum, or clog. This would explain why there is debris shooting out of your vacuums top vent.

Remove your vacuums bag and check to see if there are any clogs where the bag would attach normally. Clear out any noticeable debris.

While you're looking for clogs, check your vacuums hose, brush roll and filters. Stretch your vacuums hose out completely to unearth any debris. Manually spin your brush roll to help release any clogs, and wash your filters, but be sure to allow them to fully dry before re-installing them.

This should undo any clogs in your vacuum and cause your bag light to turn off.

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.

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.

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!!

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.

Won't Pick-up, "Bag/filter" ligth flashing


Sounds like one of two things: First, is the beater bar turning? If not, you'll have to remedy that. The bar should turn freely without a belt attached. But...you may have a problem with a jam in the tube leading from the beater head to the suction area. It will be coat hanger time in there. Be sure the unit is unplugged!
