I think its time for a new vacuum cleaner.....sounds like the circuitry is malfunctioning or you have an airflow problem that is tricking the vacuum into thinking the bags full. check all hoses and airways for blockage

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.

Electrolux Model 2100 vacuum won't work


hi from uk may i suggest you remove cover and the new dust collection bag then if you look in the bag compartment there is a gauze filter fitted usually grey in colour ? at opposite end of compartment where bag connects this gauze filter is the outlet from bag compartment that the air exhales when vac is operating ie as vac **** up dust into bag the bag has microscopic holes that allow sucked up air and dust to collect but keeps dust from passing into bag chamber but allows air to escape thro holes and so enter bag chamber then escapes via the gauze filter to outside of vac hope you follow this ?? now if this filter is blocked/never been cleaned/changed ? then the symptoms of indicator bag full light will come on you can remove and wash filter if it is gauze typ? dry and refit then try vacuuming ? or replace filter they are not expensive usually in pack of 3 in uk DO NOT RUN VAC WITHOUT THIS FILTER FITTED ! or you will have some dust in the room ? hope this helps?

My canister machine kicks off immediately after starting and bag full light goes on but it has a new bag


hi from uk your problem with vac may be the gauze filter on the inside of the compartment that has bag this filter there to allow air from the micro pores of the bag to expel to the exterior of vac (room) whilst preventing dust from expelling too ? normally another symptom of this is the vac cover sometimes flips up ? however if air cannot expel from compartment it will cause overheat of motor resulting in auto cut off but will reset when cooled SO check the filter gauze and renew or wash clean? hope you understand above and hope this helps ?

How to use the after filters for the electrolux canister vacuum


At the back of the vac on top you will have a removable grille. Release the thumb tab to lift the grill.Older models had this tab at the back of the grille. The filters will sit underneath. They should clip into the round exhaust opening. Then replace the grille. Change filters every 6 bags. More often if you have pets or allergies.

Hi, I have a canister Kenmore vacuum with power head. Everytime I use it, it smells sour. Its strong and like FEET with bad odor. My old Kenmore did the same thing but I used it anyway...because the power...


Never heard of this odor but if you have had it in both vacs it might have something to do with a disintegrating rubber backing on a carpet.
Arm and Hammer makes a baking soda based vac powder that will help eliminate some odors.
Do several things , get the powder and pour a tablespoon of it or baking soda into a fresh bag. Keep your filters fresh. If you use washable filters be certain they are thoroughly dry before reinstalling. And use a Mutli ply filter bag.. and NEVER pick up anything wet or vacuum a damp carpet

How to change filters on a Kenmore canister vacuum


Depending on age there may be one or two filters. A Hepa filter is an exhaust filter generally at the back end of the vac, sometimes at the back top.
For this style filter there will be a small grill with a release tab on it, simply pull the finger tab and the grill should pop off revealing the filter.
There is normally a bag chamber filter behind the dust bag as well. Open the bag chamber below the tool storage and remove the bag.There will be a soft filter sitting behind the bag on most models. If it is a sponge type it can be washed and reinstalled when dry, but if fabric it is disposable.Make sure you have replacement filters in hand before changing as some filters simply pop into a reusable frame, often a red frame. If the material slides out the frame is generally reusable, if glued in , it is likely disposable.
USE only the specified filter and chose the best quality multi ply filter bags for maximum vac performance and efficiency

Will not start


try opening it up again and reclosing. Might be as simple as the cleaner is not lined up right. Check for bag misalignment. some cleaners have a lock-out mechanism that prevents the cleaner from starting if the lid and or bag are not in the proper alignment. If it is the filter compartment, same thing. Then, check a different outlet, check if your bag is full. if you were cleaning with the machine already prior to the checking of the back, maybe there is a clog or full bag as this would cause the vac to overheat and thus, the thermostat would not allow the vacuum to operate until it cools. If this is the case, change your bag, filter, and drop a penny through the hose(unattached from the vacuum and power nozzle) to check for blockage. Chances are, this is where your problem lies.

Electrolux canister special edition problem


If this canister has a "bag full" light and auto shutoff, there is an internal diaphragm switch controlled by a dial on top of the vac. Set the dial for medium setting. Install a fresh bag and test again.
There is a pinhole in the throat of the vac which allows air to flow through a tube to the diaphragm. Check to see that it is not blocked with a grain of sand. There is a second pin hole in the corner of the bag chamber check there as well for blockage. If this vac is less than 20 years old the control valve for the diaphragm often cracks and needs to be replaced. You would access it by peeling ( like a banana) the soft rubber bumpers off the side of the vac and sliding the locking keys underneath the bumper out the front end of the vac when the bag door is open.Then gently popping the housing apart from FRONT to back. DO NOT try to pry the back housing off. Caution, this is normally performed on a cradle in a repair shop designed to hold all the components in place

I can not find how to get the canister apart to empty the dirt.


From the bottom of your machine going upwards past the handle that is on the canister portion of this vacuum, you will see that the top of that canister had a depression where you should be able to put your fingers in, and gently pull that lid back, opening the vacuum bag compartment. According to the manual, simply pull that back, exposing the bag. To remove the bag, pull the cardboard plate on the top of the bag, out towards the no open face. Throw away your old bag, and take your new bag, fold down the paper sides of the bag, then slide the new bag into the track completely. Close your lid, and you are done.
While you have this compartment open, it's a good idea to check your filter that sits below the paper bag.

Part numbers
Paper Bag: SC-P11
Filter: SC-F2

I hope this helps you.

Miele white star canister vacuum - won't turn on, but isn't clogged


Miele S251i Plus Bagged Canister Vacuum
Miele white star canister vacuum - won't turn on,...
Hi,

I have the above canister vac, which after my son tried to vac the stairs, it rolled down the stairs on him, but still worked, after turned off/on. Then after turned off maybe 10-15 mins., stopped working when we tried the switch. My father in law is our fix it guy, but still having a problem with the switch. Is there a wiring guide we could look at?

Thank you!

ALevy


I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
You can try to call the factory for the Miele S251i schematics / wiring diagram @ the phone number and website listed below or I put a few pieces of information listed below that might help.
1. The vacuum cleaner switches off automatically
A temperature limiter switches the vacuum cleaner off automatically if it gets too hot. Some models have a warning light (triangle) which comes on to indicate that it has overheated. Allow the appliance to cool down for approx. 30 mins. and remove any blockages to the air path.
2. The "Change dustbag" indicator stays on even when a new bag has been inserted
To ensure the dustbag change indicator gives a correct reading, lift the floor nozzle or power head off the floor slightly to prevent the vacuum created in the suction tube from influencing the reading.
3. The exhaust filter indicator is red
Change the exhaust filter and then press "Reset" to switch off the indicator light.
