I have an Electrolux LX that has a problem with the bag ejection system. The vacuum works perfectly and has great suction. However, the pusher plate keeps engaging and the door does not open, which smashes the bag. Is there a way to disable the ejection system? I do not have the "Church Key" that Electrolux used to provide.
Also, I recently obtained a mint condition Electrolux E. Not the AE, but the first E. It did not come with the matching combo dusting brush. Does anyone out there have one that I can purchase?? I display my Electrolux vacuum cleaners with the attachments and really would like to have the matching dusting brush.
I hope that someone out there in Vacuumland can assist me with the above situations.
A great day to all,

Sounds like your pneumatic system is working fine, if it trips the ejector spring.
But your door latch (which is adjustable) is jammed or not lifting, since when in fine tune the door will unlatch & open first with the motor running and in a few seconds, as the suction dies down only then does the spring release and eject the bag.
Easy to fix. Could simply be fine dust clogging the bleed inside the intake port, or lining the clear hose from the door innards through the hinge to the pneumatics & levers inside the base. Quite often the wells under the rubber diaphragms are packed with dust powder which will restrict their full play and movement. There are NO glued gaskets in there; everything is held together airtight with clamps and pressure plates.
Easy to remove and service.
