it off. I have changed the filter and the bag, which did not solve the problem. Any suggestions on what the problem could be? It’s only about 31/2 years old and I really don’t use it all that much, mainly for getting up dust and cob-webs from my garage.

Check the hoses, the filters, and throughout the vacuum, and clean out any blockages or clogs. Vacuums will likely also have a recommended cooldown time to ensure that the vacuum won`t overheat. You will need to wait for that time before you turn the vacuum back on.
A telltale sign that the bag is full is if your vacuum cleaner`s suction power is not as powerful. If you`re noticing dirt and debris left behind despite running the vacuum over a few times, it`s time to switch out your bag.
Whatever brand of vacuum cleaners you use, such as Miele, Johnny vac, or Oreck, make sure your vacuum smells fresh when using. But if you notice an odd smell, like burning, you should get the unit repaired as early as possible. The smell can be a sign of overheating.

Alos I have an air filter and a motor filter for it. I have often changed the air filter on the top. How do I get at the motor filter, if there is one?
OK you have to is replaced the bag and that’s it.
And don’t forget to change the bag again to avoid that problem.

I recently bought a house with an older Electrolux Central Vac system. I’m unfamiliar with them, so I’m not sure how to deal with this: I cleaned up some mortar dust with it, and noticed not too long after that when I went into the garage, there was a fog of dust. The hose from the unit is venting into the garage. Is this normal? I have since used it for everyday household cleaning and each time I go back to the garage to a cloud of dust. Is there anything I can do? Thanks
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It sounds to me that the unit you have may have to be vented outside as I am not familiar with this particular unit, or it could very well be that it is missing a filter or the filter you have inside already is shot and is in need of replacement or on some central vacs there are paper filter that go over the cloth type filter. Again, I am not familiar with this older unit but feel free to contact the Electrolux Factory or Manufacturer and give them the model # and the serial # for the unit and they will have a breakdown of if it should be vented and what type of filtration it should be using. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
