Electrolux UltraLux 2000 Bagged Canister Vacuum\015 My Electrolux 2100 canister shuts off and the full bag light goes on when just the hose is connected to it. It will run with nothing connected to the canister, but put your hand over just a little portion of the inlet, or connect the hose to it, and it shuts down. Could this be a bad full bag switch/valve?\015

Turn the unit on and feel the suction at the end of the hose handle. If there is no or low suction, then the clog is in the hose. You can remove the clog by running a long, stiff object through the hose, such as a butter knife, starting at the wall end.
Oil from the exhaust port running down the pump. Rumbling sounds coming from the pump. Repeated failure to reach maximum pressure for tasks. Mist or smoke coming from the exhaust section of the pump.

You can open the vac front to rear like a **** shell by sliding the bumpers out the front with the bag door open, however you must be careful not to disturb the wiring harness and to mark wiring locations. The body must be carefully realigned for closure. If it is not perfect you will not be able to slide the bumpers back in.
got the DC14 and it doesn’t seem to have much suction in the floor head, the hose still has good suction. I have checked all the paths for blockage and there is none.
.If your unit’s suction has decreased there could be several reasons.
.Firstly, the motor may be the problem. If you hear any noises while the machine is running, you should contact the original manufacturer for trouble shootingsolutions.
.Secondly, your vacuum may be in need of new parts. By changing either the brushroll or belts, you should be able to increase the quality of the suction.

.I eventual gave in to curiosity and removed the three screws in the top or the yellow removable dust collection tube and cyclone bit to see what was in there. The mechanism to release the flap at the bottom of the collection tube does not allow you to remove the lid completely but it does open far enough to get inside. I found the whole top section of the yellow plastic bit blocked by a big plug of compacted dust and a champagne cork. If you are willing to take the risk and have a torx 15 screwdriver handy it that part may be blocked. It did get a bit messy.
.If I was going to attempt the same procedure I’d remove the dust collection unit from the vacuum cleaner as I did before, but leave the clear tube attached and the emptying flap firmly closed to reduce the mess from the dust falling out the bottom while cleaning the top part.
