SOURCE: Electrolux Epic 6500SR Full Bag sensor working, Does not Reset properly

The problem was a sticking switch that was not being reset. The vacuum on/off switch mechanism is comprised of two switches. One is the main switch that turns the vacuum on and off. The second is a shut off switch that gets tripped when the full bag sensor is engaged. This second switch is supposed to get reset when you push the on/off switch on the outside of the machine. The full bag shutoff switch was stiff and it, therefore, was taking a couple of presses of the on/off switch to move the shutoff switch back into the running position.

Greetings from GoVacuum.com,

It sounds like you may have a bad thermal switch inside the machine. Most vacuum cleaners have a switch connected to the motor, so if the vacuum cleaner is running hot, it will shut off to prevent any damage to your motor. You did all the right things by checking the bag, making sure the hose was NOT clogged, and replacing HEPA filter.

Most of the time on canister vacuums, the reason is caused by a clog in the hose, or somewhere in the powerhead. If you're sure that there is no clog anywhere, it is going to be the thermal switch on the motor.

Here's a link to the parts schematic for the Bosch upright vacuum. I hope it helps you in determining how to access the thermal switch. A word of warning to you before you try it, this is a very tough vacuum cleaner to work on, you may want to bring it in to a vacuum repair shop, as this is not an easy repair.

Here's the link;

Greetings from GoVacuum.com,

Yes, you certainly can take off the outer bag of your Oreck and wash it in the washing machine. You DO NOT however want to put the bag through the dryer!!!!! Just hang the bag outside, and let it air dry. It is important to make sure that the bag is 100% completely dry before you use the machine again. If the bag is wet, it will cause dirt to turn to mud in the bag, and probably cause a foul odor when you use the bag.

There are 2 different types of bag systems with Oreck vacuums. The one pictured below is the older style that uses a metal clamp to hold the bag in place. The newer docking system, will be a white plastic clamp that holds the outer bag in place. They both will be removed the same way however. Simply take a screwdriver and pry off the clamp;

Once you have removed this clamp, simply pull the outer bag off. Once it has been washed, and the bag is 100% completely dry, put the outer bag back over the bag housing as far as it will go. When you put the clamp back on, it is imperative that the clamp go behind the plastic ridges, to ensure that it is tightly fastened. If the clamp is not put on correctly, this will cause the inner paper bag to fall off during vacuuming. Make sure that the clamp is in the right position when putting the bag back;

SOURCE: my vacuum stops showing "bag full" even after I

This is most probably due to a worn out or clogged Control Valve Assembly.
Detach the hose and see if it runs. If it does, place hand over hole. If it shuts off, CVA is probably the cause. A clogged CVA is generally due to using generic/made-to-fit bags. Genuine bags have "Home Solutions" printed on them.
You can try turning the dial all the way to the large dot, then try to run the vacuum.
If it is the CVA, you'll need to take it to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store and have their service tech repair or replace the part. I recommend a service and clean of the vacuum at the same time. This will extend the life of the vacuum.

Hi. Visit http://www.bosch-home.co.uk/customer-service/download-instruction-manuals.html and follow the link to add the model number in. Also if no joy there contact Bosch UK - they will be happy to help you. Generally this vacuum has a bin door at the top that opens up towards the owner. The hose will have to be removed and the latch is behind the handle. Thereafter the bag can be slipped out and replaced.

There is a thermal sensor in the motor which shuts power off if it gets too hot but usually it won't turn back on until it cools down. It seems you might have a defective switch

Hello,

If the vacuum sounds like it usually does and still doesn’t pick up, you probably need to replace the belt. To check this, turn the vacuum on and lay it down sideways. Check to see if the roller is spinning. If it's spinning, turn the vacuum off. Stand it up and turn it back on. Do you hear the roller spinning. Some belts stretch over time. If the roller was spinning when the vacuum was on it’s side and stops when the roller has some pressure on it (your carpet), change the belt.
A clogged vacuum cleaner usually sounds "clogged". The noise the vacuum normally makes will seem muffled. First, Unplug Your Vacuum. Then change the vacuum bag or empty the dirt cup. If the bag is filled up more than halfway, this could reduce your suction. Throw out the bag. Look at the area that holds the dirt cup or vacuum bag. Remove any debris. Look for a filter in this area. If you find a filter make sure it's relatively clean. A clogged filter will shorten the life span of your vacuum. Make sure your filter is back in place or replaced, and reinstall the vacuum bag or dirt cup.
A lot of the current style upright vacuum cleaners have attachments and a hose on board. If you have a vacuum hose on your upright, pull it out like your going to vacuum with it. Look at the area you removed the hose from. Remove any debris. I recommend wearing gloves, and try not to use any sharp tools like a needle nose pliers that might puncture your vacuum hose.
For the final step in this vacuum cleaner repair, place the vacuum in a position where you have a birds eye view of the bottom plate. You can usually see if there is any debris that requires removal.
Here is a link that will take you to a site that shows how to access your machine to change belt or look for clogs.

Same problem. I suppose BOSCH dumped these into the market and have chosen to disown them. Support is pitiful and vacuums have also been taken off their website. Too bad, was a nice quiet product for the 2 months it worked. Solution = new, non-BOSCH vacuum.

The store you bought your vac from should have bags for it. Alot of stores and Sew and Vac stores carry a large variety of bags, you will have to shop or call around. A repair shop should be able to order them if need be. You should change bags when they are maybe 3/4 full. The fuller they get, the suction will decrease and make the motor have to work too hard. Also check your filters, change them if they look bad.
