Question about Electrolux Epic 6500 Vacuum
I need to find the service/repair manual for an older Electrolux/Aerus Series 6500 model C102G. I think the control valve needs to be replaced, but need some basic instructions to open the unit. An assembly drawing would even help.
I don't have a service manual but maybe I can give you some instructions that will make some sense. Open the front of the canister and remove the bag. As you are looking at the front of the unit, there are two vinyl covered strips that run the length of the unit. Pull forward on these strips and then pull out so that the vinyl separates 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 everything will be exposed. The control valve rests under the bag housing, since the machine is now upside down. I hope this helps. Good Luck!!
