Having problems with your Electrolux Epic 6500 Vacuum ?

Bag Full Sensor

\015 I have an Epic 6500 SR and the full bag light will not go out after I changed the bag. Based on another post it sounds like the full bag light switch is sticking. How do I get to that switch ? Thanks\015

Answers :

Opening The Unit:
\015\012Remove the hose, open the door, and remove the bag. Making sure that the door is open wide enough, pull the rubber strip on each side of the canister toward the opening until they are completely removed. With a little shifting, you will now be able to pry open the top cover from the bottom. Remove the obstruction sensor hose so that you can completely separate the halves.
\015\012Note: If the strips will not move toward the front, the you will have to slide them off to the rear. You will need two screwdrivers to pry open the top rear of the unit far enough to release the back cover.
\015\012Locating The Switch:
\015\012The "trip" switch is located on the inside top cover under the power button. The trip switch is activated by the sensor valve next to it.
Its a bad controll valve i would take it to a vacuum shop so you don't break your expensive vacuum trying to pry it appart.

Hi there, I have an excellent Electrolux (but older) Diplomat LX model which stops when the bag is supposedly full. It''s not full however, but merely 1/4 to 1/3 full. I'd like to reduce the "sensitivity" of the sensor or turn it off altogether. I don't run my vacuum with a full bag, but there's a limit. Please tell me how to address this problem. Thanks very much.

My Windsor Sensor XP12 says the bag is full when it's not. I have removed the hose, brush, and filter and cleaned everything. I can put a bag on without the cover and it works great. However, when I add the bag to the front cover and close the latch the right way, it does not work. I'm thinking that the cover is not seating the bag correctly over the hole, but I can't figure out how to fix it. Any suggestions?
