Having problems with your Electrolux Epic 6500 Vacuum ?
Vacum keeps turning off with warning lights
\015 My vacum keeps turning off, the top warning lights come on. The bag with the dots in it and the cord light. I checked the bag which was not close to full. I changed the filter on top, which was not very dirty. When I turn the machine off it restarts then shuts down after about one or two minutes. I'm afaid to burn up the motor. Please advise.\015
Actually the problem is that you need to change your control valve. The motor has an internal thermostat on it already so the chances of you burning the motor out are very slim. By changing the control valve, you will solve your problem. Very simple and quick fix.
It sounds like your vacuum motor is over heating to the point that the safety feature is engaging so not cause further damage. Take it into a shop to see what is causing it to shut off. You could also try taking it apart and checking for a hiding clog!

My Kirby G6 light is not turning on when I start the machine. I took off the front piece and removed a lot of hair from the roller and interior. Since I did that, the belt keeps coming off (even though it is fairly new). Is that the reason the light won't turn on? Is there any advice you can give me before I take it in?
The light indicates that the brushroll is spinning. If it isn't coming on, the power nozzle may have been reinstalled incorrectly. Take the nozzle off and then use my step-by-step guide to reinstall it. I expect that it will take care of the problem. ... Kirby Vacuums

My Scooba floor cleaner "check tank" light stays on even after it's refilled and everything cleaned but still will not work. It just keeps beeping at me when I try to start it. How do I reset it or get the light to turn off so I can wash my floors?

I was just using my Bosch 1450W bagged vacuum and all of a sudden, the motor just shut down. No warning, no problems. The light still turns on, but the motor is unresponsive. There is a clean bag and filter, and nothing caught in the front roller. The motor sounded fine - no shaking, or weird frequency variations. There were no weird smells, just a little bit of heat, but nothing beyond normal. I've had this thing for several years, and never had a bit of trouble with it. Any suggestions
