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.

Vaccum afuera 550 start few minutes and stop few secondes, after 10 min its stop 30 sec and start 3 sec, after 20 min start ok


Your vacuum may be clogged, overheating and shutting off. Check for obstructions in the hose by laying it as straight as possible and shining a flashlight in one end while looking thru the other end. If you have a curved hose end, try holding the suction hose from another vacuum while checking for airflow in the opposite end.

My Roomba Model 440 runs for about 2 minutes and stops. I can start it up again after which it repeats stopping after not quite 2 minutes. It is perfectly clean and charged. What is the problem?


Most likely your NiCad battery is at the end of it's life and needs replacement. The packs in Roombas are made up of a group of individual cells and what often happens as they age is that a single cell will fail, causing the entire pack to provide less than usable voltage. The Roomba will attempt to operate and then sensing low voltage, it will shut down.

To prevent reduced battery life in the future with your new pack, always keep your Roomba charged as storing a NiCad pack in a discharged state will cause the build up of salts within the pack, damaging the cells.

Replacement is simple and packs are around $40 bucks online, all you need is a small Phillips screwdriver and about 5 minutes.

I was vacuuming with bissell 3750-T and I shut it off and went to turn it back on and will not start or do anything, what is wrong?


If you can't smell burning then it's probably a broken power switch or the vacuum got too hot and the thermal overload protection has tripped. Try leaving it off for 15-30 minutes and try it again. The thermal overload will reset itself during this time and it should work again.

In the meantime, make sure you have power to the vacuum, check for any blockages and check that the rollers in the cleaning head will turn by hand. Also, give your filters a clean. Any of these could cause the vacuum to overheat.

If you've already done this and/or power doesn't return after 15-30 minutes, I would start by checking the switch.

A couple of questions . . .

1. Does the power switch feel "normal" - basically does it have a positive feel when you switch on and off?
2. How long had you been using the vacuum before it stopped working?

I changed the motor in my Dyson Animal hoover and works fine but after 15 minutes it stops as if it was turned off, if i leave it for a period (2 hrs)it will start up again and work for a further 15 mins...


Hi there

All Dyson vacuum cleaners are fitted with a thermal cutout, which will switch off the motor if it becomes too hot. This is normally caused by a lack of airflow to the motor, i.e caused by a blockage or a dirty filter.

I would make sure that you have completed the full blockage procedure and have thoroughly washed the filter and see if this helps.

Kind regards

Hoove Cyclonic Bagless vacuum shuts off after only a few minutes


The motor has a protective overload cutout device to stop it from over heating - this can be caused by a blockage of some sort in the hose or brushroll compartment or blocked filters.
After checking the above and it still cuts out, take it back under gurantee

Check any filters that may be clogged, try running a mix of water and vinegar thru it, to clean out the lines and brush block. Brush block may be bad.

Vacuum stopped in middle of vacuuming our carpet. Would not startup at switch. Tried other electrical outlets wondering if this was the problem and checked breakers, but it still did not go back on.


2 guesses.... One is that you vacuumed up a pice of cord or sting that got wound up on the roller (if it's that tyme of machine, and NOW everything's completelt "loced." Cure: look at the brush roller and "unwind" the cord or string.

Two is that you were doing it for a long time and the thermal circuit breaker (which is IN the vacuum cl;eaner itself) over heated and cut out. Usually these are self-resetting, so in a 1/2 hour or 45 minutes - when the thing coold down, it'll start working again.

Note that my first suggestion COULD cause the motor to heat up the and cause the thermal cur out.
