Re: electrolux 2000 Mod# c151c
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. http://evacuumstore.com/

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.
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.
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?
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.
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
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.
