I have an Aerus Lux 7000 C153A vac that has an air switch problem. Vac keeps shutting off, especially if you place your hand over the intake. I can usually figure mechanical things out, but for the life of me I cannot determine how to access the wiring and the switches.

Is there a manual or video that can instruct me as to how this vac comes apart?

All help is appreciated.

Here's a video of someone disassembling a similar vacuum.

I had that problem on my Electrolux Diplomat LX. I ended up ust disconnecting the vacuum tube that connected to the valve, effectively disabling it. The vacuum runs just fine, even if it won't stop automatically anymore.

Your valve (the dial on top) likely has broken plastic inside. You can either replace the valve or disconnect the tube, connecting it to the switch. If it were me, I would just replace the valve. But either way youíll have a functioning vacuum again.

Iím not sure why those valves break so much.. maybe people jerk the knob too hard on the top? I currently have about 15 plastic bodied canisters in my collection.. and Iíve sold quite a few on eBay over the years and Iíve seen this issue with the valves in a couple of them.

Either you need to change your vacuum bag or you forgot to LOG-IN?
