Having problems with your Electrolux Epic 6500 Vacuum ?

How do you lower the head?

\015 My vacuum is not picking up very well. I just replaced the bag.....no help. I don't see a lever or anything to lower or raise the head on the power drive. Thanks!\015

Answers :

Do you by chance own a dog? Usually problems just like this are solved by removing the blockage between the bag and where you notice the vacuum has decreased. In extreme circumstances, I've seen the fan blades themselves, at the motor, have been broken requiring replacement.

Needle rubbing I have a singer pro finish and recently I broke a needle and the lower looper also busted clean off. I ordered the lower looper and replaced the broken one and changed both the needles. Now when I turn the hand wheel and the lower looper moves to the left and the needles descend they pass in front of the looper but when the needles begin to move up and the looper moves back to the right the needles bend back and go behind the looper. Help! Thank You!

My dyson vacuum cleaner doesn't seem to have the same suction power it used to. I have cleaned out the canister and have taken apart the vacuum head (for cleaning carpets) and it doesn't seem to be blocked but it seems to lose suction by the time it reaches the head. The suction is strong at the end of the hose (where you attach the telescopic attachment with vacuum head) Any ideas? Thanks, Irene

Miele, Flamenco II. 2 probs. 1. the head brush is not turning when I put it on the floor. If I pick it up to look inside...the brush is spinning fast..I put it down on the floor...the head does not spin at all. 2. The suction power has dropped significantly. The suction used to be so intense, the head would **** itself to my floor and hold on...now, hardly any suction at all.


Sounds like the belt is not on correctly on the beater brush or the belt is worned out now for the suction check filters or bags that need to be empty or clean ... Miele Vacuums

It sounds like you have a hose problem. You should be aware that the Fantom company went bankrupt many years ago. I know that the Fantom name was bought by another company and there may be Chinese units sold under that name, but service and parts ava ... Fantom Vacums Lighting Canister Vacuum

With cleaning carpets with the Stowaway when the head gets a blockage it makes a high pitched whining sound and requires unblocking - then works fine. Now when vacuuming the head always makes the same sound when the head is against the carpet. you can also see that the rollers are slow or stopped. We have pulled the Stowaway virtually completely apart and checked for blockages as well as washed the filter and no difference. Any ideas?

My steam pocket mop seems clogged. Steam does not come out of the mop head. The clog appears to be in the rectangular mop head. The triangular head still works fine. I've tried soaking it in hot water and soaking it with cleaning solutions. They have not worked. If I blow into the connection piece, no air goes through. That's what leads me to believe there is a clog. If you can help, please do. I like the product and haven't been able to use it for awhile because of this. Thanks.


I had the same issue with the rectangular mop and corrected it by disassembling the tube from the rectangular piece. There are two screws that will need to be removed in order to get access to the connector. Once the connector is removed from the rec ... Euro-Pro Shark Steam Mop - Gray/ Purple Vacuum

I have a new Euro-Pro shark model S3101. Used it one time and while I was doing my tile floor in my kitchen I reached under a cabnet to clean and hit the floor kick kind of hard and broke the head off of the shark. I have only the T shaped end on the shark now with the cleaning head broken off and looks unrepairable. I did kind of hit the floor kick hard but the plastic broke like glass. Can I put a new head on the remaining piece or is it repairable? thanks Angie

The motor on my Epic 6500 works, the hose is sucking, but the power head isn;t working... I tried the sidestep power head and that one works. Ive opened and replaced the belt and that is fine. The bulb was already burned out and wasn't replaced so I cant tell if theres power to the head. What else could it be?
