Having problems with your Electrolux Epic 6500 Vacuum ?

Vaccum won't start, question mark appears on unit

Answers :

This generally means the bag is full, or pores in bag are clogged with fine dust. First, replace bag, Check the afterfilter located under the tool holder on the back top of the machine. If it's dirty, replace or remove.
Detach the hose and turn on the vacuum. If it comes on, place hand over intake. If the vacuum continues running, it's an indication there's a clog in the hose. If it shuts off, the most likely problem is the "control valve assembly" (inside the vacuum) that's connected to the dial on top of the vacuum. You can try turning the dial so the large dot is lined up with the arrow. This may or may not help. Try turning vacuum on again.
If it still doesn't turn on, the "CVA" is probably worn out and needs replaced. The part can only be purchased at an authorized Aerus store and I highly recommend letting their service person replace/repair it. To locate the shop nearest you, go to the following site and enter your zip code.


Using generic bags increases the chances of the CVA wearing out before it should. If the bag doesn't say "Home Solutions" on it, it's not the genuine article.

Roomba My Scheduler started making a "grinding" noise every now and then until one day it just started grinding and then stopped (I could restart the unit, however it repeated the grinding and stopping).

On our Hoover U6445-900 (Mach 6.9) we replaced the small belt that goes to beater brushes in front of unit. Upon starting, the Hoover quickly got hot and smoky. We shut it off and looked things over carefully, but the second try also resulted in friction heat on the belt. Now it appears the belt may have stretched due to heat and the brushes won't spin. Any ideas?

Electrolux Centralux I have a Electrolux Centralux. When I plug the hose in at one of the wall outlets the motor will not start. If I go to the motor and slap the unit it will start.....then...it will not stop unless I unplug the power cord to the motor. If I plug the power cord back in, the unit will not restart until I slap the motor unit again. The unit has only been used 20 - 30 times. Any suggestions?? Thanks, Bruce

I have a Kirby Dual Sanitronic '50' Vacuum Cleaner I bought in 1966. The motor does not start when I attach the belt lifter of the rug nozzle. When I remove the rug nozzle and detach the belt from the motor fan shaft the motor starts when I depress the nozzle switch and the power switch . Seems like the brushes in the motor are worn out. I do not have a manual for this unit. Can you assist me as to what newer unit is this compatible to and the problem I'm having at present??

I checked the belt and it has not broken, but when I start to vaccum the spinning head stops, and I start to smell a rubber smell...Do you think I need to replace the belt, I did get some string caught in it the last time I vaccummed, and it did stink like rubber then also...

Yes you do need to replace the belt they stretch out. Think of a belt like a big rubber band if you were to stretch it out and hold a lighter to it the rubber band would stay stretched out. That is the same thing that happen ... Bissell Vacuums

My Singer Izek sewing machine starts and stops and wont sew continuously. When I push down the pedal it sews about 2 inches then stops and light starts flashing, I have to let off of the pedal and push it again, over and over. It did this once before for awhile and then just started sewing right for awhile and now its started it again. I've checked everything.

If it's not the thread and not the pedal then it's definitely a power problem. You need to replace the power cable and then check again the functionality. ... Vacuums
