How to Identify and Fix Common Vacuum Problems ?

If the grease or active charcoal filter of your ventilation hood(s) is saturated, the red LED indicator will light up. Your filter should then be cleaned or replaced as soon as possible.
If this happens, check if the motor protection filter and exhaust filters need to be replaced. If so, replace them and reset the indicator. To do this, turn on the vacuum and press the reset button. The service indicator light will turn off and then be reset to its original position.
There are three main causes for your Miele to not power on: The power switch has failed. The cord reel is damaged. Your motor has gone bad.
The battery needs to be charged. Leave the robot on the base. If it`s still not fully charged after 3 hours visit Why does my Roomba® or Braava® not turn on or charge properly?
Loose connections will cause your vacuum cleaner to lose suction. Make sure that the dust container, the hose, the tube and the brush are all attached properly. If the problem continues, your vacuum cleaner might have a technical problem. If you suspect this to be the case, contact an authorised service agent.
Use Some Water
A little bit of water can do wonders for boosting a suction cup`s grip. Using warm water, rinse the whole cup so it softens it up. Shake the drops of water off the cup quickly and then put it up on the wall. That can often do the trick.
Durability & Warranty – If you`re looking for a vacuum cleaner with durability and longevity, look no further than Miele. Miele vacuum cleaners are designed and tested to last for 20 years. Miele vacuum cleaners come with a 7-year warranty on the motor and a 1-year warranty on parts and labor.
The most common culprits for a Miele vacuum losing suction are a clogged filter, overfilled bag, and a blockage somewhere in the hose.
If a malfunction occurs during the cleaning process, the ring-shaped indicator of the device will flash rapidly in red and the voice message will turn on.
If the Side Brush is not spinning, please perform the Side Brush care procedure. If the Side Brush is not spinning after cleaning, you may need a replacement Side Brush Module. Please visit the iRobot Store – Parts and Accessories, contact iRobot Customer Care, or use an authorized retailer or partner.
A red light indicates that the device is not charging. If the battery does not charge, the battery will need to be replaced.
All batteries, even Dyson`s high-end lithium ion batteries fail given enough time, and the blinking red light problem is an indication that your battery has failed. The battery cannot be fixed. It has to be disposed of and replaced.
Around every six months the filter will need to be removed and washed to help keep performance levels at a high standard. This is indicated by a red light and the filter can be easily removed from its chamber, rinsed under water before being allowed to dry. The CX1 also benefits from a lifetime HEPA filter.
If the temperature becomes too warm, an alarm sounds and the “alarm” indicator turns red and flashes and the temperature flashes in the control panel.

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.
No Suction I get great suction in the hose, but when I plug the hose back into the unit, there is no suction and the air flow indicator line goes completely red. I've changed the bag and filters. I took the small panel off the back and made sure there is no clog, and took the hose off to make sure there was no clog there. Still no suction. Please help.
I about to say that’s always a clog of some sort that causes that
No suction – goes to red alert even with a new bag
Sounds like its blocked in pipe somewhere take hose of and push something like a long brush handle through the pipe if there’s anything in there it will get pushed out
My electrolux oxygen cannister has the “bag change” light on when there is a new bag. The light stays on when the suction power is high (to pick up small particles) and it won’t pick up, but the ight goes off when the suction power is low (to pick up big objects). I changed the hepa filter, cleaned the motor filter and changed bags, but all that didn’t help.
You may have a clog in the hose, and/or the inlet by the brush roll. A clog will turn on that light as well as a full bag.
While vacuuming the red light for the bag of the vacuum came on and the vacuum stopped. The bag was no where near full so I replaced it with a new bag – same problem. It vaccumes for a minute or then stops with bag light on. It is the correct bag for the machine – so what’s the problem?
I’m assuming this is the Epic 6500 or similar model.
.Detach the hose, turn vacuum on. If it runs, place palm of hand against inport hole. If it shuts off the problem is with either the control valve setting or the control valve assembly itself.
.For cvs, turn dial on top of vacuum all the way to the largest dot, and try above test again. If that doesn’t work, then it’s the CVA. It needs to be cleaned or replaced, which is an in shop job. Fro repair, take it to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store. I recommend a full clean and service to remove any dust/dirt from the motor, fan assembly, and other internal parts.
.Another problem, which relates to the dial setting, is that fine dust will quickly clog the pores of the bag, resulting in the machine “thinking” the bag is full. Turning the dial to the proper setting helps get the bag fuller. The middle setting is the normal setting, and is for areas without fine dust and sand.
I have the electrolux guardian-My full bag light indicater is coming on even with a new bag. It gets worst-the machine will cut off when I insert the hose or put my hand over the hole where the hose goes. I changed the filter on the back and put in a new bag. Help please 🙂
.Check your hose you have something stuck in the hose…stretch it out straight and run something through it to push out whatever is stuck in there…
When you put your hand over suction it shuts off and the bag light goes on it acts like the bag is full but its aq brand new bag
So what’s the problem? Stop blocking the suction with your hand! The machine can’t tell the difference between a blockage caused by your hand and a blockage caused by a full bag. Just be grateful that you’ve got a machine with such good protection.
Unbeknownst to me, someone took the bag out of my Kenmore Progressive vacuum and failed to replace it. I have been vacuuming without a bag for months, and today the vacuum stopped sucking. When I opened up the front to replace the bag, tons of dirt and dust came pouring out. I thoroughly cleaned the vacuum, put in a new bag, but still no sucking power. Just dust coming from the rear vents where one of the filters is. Is the vacuum ruined, or is it a simple solution of buying a new filter?
Sounds like you need to buy a new motor. All that grit and dust will ruin a motor and I’m surprised it lasted as long as it did.
.This is where a vacuum that won’t run without a bag would have been nice. (Aerus for one)
