Question about Electrolux Epic 6500 Vacuum
Read online that contol valve needs replacing. Where is it ? How do you change it?
It does sound like your control valve is bad. I would suggest taking it to your Aerus dealer, because it shouldn't be that expensive for them to fix. Plus, I'm not sure if you can get the part fom anywhere else. That's the only place I've ever found them. If you don't have a dealer around, you may be able to call their corporate HQ and get them to ship you the part. The control valve sits right under the dial knob on top of your canister. You have to dissassemble the entire unit from the bottom up to get to it. It might be a bit much if you aren't pretty handy. But if you really want to, open the front of the canister and remove the bag. As you are looking at the front of the unit, there are two vinyl coverd strips that run the length of the unit. Pull forward on these strips and then pull out so that the vinyl seperates from the plastic underneath. Now grab the plastic strip with a pair of needle nose pliers and pull towards the front of the canister. These can be tough if the machine has never been opened up before, but pull as hard as you need to, to slide the strip out. Once both strips are out, turn the machine over, pull out on the sides of the bottom of the unit, and lift up. The bottom should come of relatively easily, and eveything will be exposed. You will now have to remove the cordwinder, motor, and bag housing. Under the bag housing you will finally see the control valve with vacuum lines attached to it. Good Luck!!
