1. Check if the S-bag® is full or blocked.

Always change the S-bag® when the indicator signal is illuminated even if the s-bag® is not full (it may be blocked), and always after using carpet cleaning powder.

In some models (i.e. AEG VX8.2) the indicator can illuminate in two colours: 

White (or inactive - model depending) - the vacuum cleaner is operating normally, no bag change is needed. 

s-bag white

Red - the bag is full and needs to be replaced.

After replacing the bag, the lamp lights up red for about 5 seconds and then continues to light up in white.

Use only AEG/Electrolux original synthetic s-bags®.
