\015 I have an Electrolux epic 6500SR I'm trying to change the power cord can't seem to find how to take apart the cannister where the cord is located Can anyone please give me step step directions?\015

Answers :

You really don't want to get into the vacuum. You could cause more damage than what you have now. After you do get into the vac, the cordwinder is another monster to get into.
\015\012There are two strips,one on each side of the cleaner under the rubber bumpers. The strips have to be removed by pulling off the bumper and pull them out the front of the vac.This is not easy. After you get the locking strips out, turn the vac over and pull the bottom off. Then you can see the cordwinder.
\015\012The best thing to do is take the vac to a Aerus/Electrolux shop for repair.

I was vacuuming and noticed that the bag needed changing. the red light with the ! inside the triangle also came on. When the bag was changed, the vacuum would not restart. The red light came on. Tried the reset button but nothing happened. Tried unplugging and re-plugging in and nothing happened. Replaced all the filters and still it wouldh't start. So I brought it downstairs and tried one more time to get it to start. it worked! Is there something wrong with the vacuum cleaner? Was it overheat

I have an electrolux epic 6500 sr. The change bag light came on, I changed the bag, now it won't run properly. If the bag is out and the hose attached it will run or if the bag is in and the hose is off it will run, but not if the bag is in and the hose is attached. Any suggestions?


First, if it runs without a bag, there's a problem with the bag lock-out switch or wiring. This needs to be replaced/repaired by an authorized Aerus Electrolux technician.\015\012\015\012First, turn dial on top of vacuum counter-clockwis ... Electrolux Epic 6500 Vacuum
