Electrolux Epic 6000 SR Owners Manual?

Got an Epic 6000SR and need a manual so I can figure out what the top dial does (I would imagine suction strength), what the lights are for and general care of the vacuum.

Also is there a secondary filter on this machine?

    From the manual: "Adjust the control dial for type of cleaning required. For normal cleaning conditions the dial should be set in center position (T). When vacuuming fine dust, rotate the dial counterclockwise. When vacuuming larger particles, rotate the dial clockwise."

Yes, there is a secondary carbon filter under the accessories tray.

  • Slide accessories of of clip
  • Gently press latch (on rear of tray) and lift off the cover.
  • Lift air filter out and replace.

There are 4 Symbols, next to the suction dial, on the Electrolux Epic 6000 SR vacuum cleaner . . . what does each symbol refer to ? J P Mac D


the dials refer to types of dirt.The higher the dial the heavier the dirt.This is for the auto shut off when the bag is full.The best setting is in the middle.If you are vacuuming up fine dust suck in some Kleenex before this will coat the bag and prevent premature shu toff.

How do I get reverse suction with the electrolux epic 6000?


I have no idea just what reverse suction would be or how to get it from ANY vac. If you're looking at getting the blowing air from the vac instead of suction, then simply move the hose from the suction end to the exhaust end.

Why does my Electrolux epic 6000 sr shut off with suction?


Hi,

If this Epic 6000 is shutting off when you either just turn it on or while vacuuming with it...it\'s one of several things...1. Change the bag if you\'ve been picking up a lot of "fine" dust such as drywall dust or carpet freshener powder. That\'s ******* them. 2. Being the machine is over 22 yrs. old, the suction control valve inside either needs to be replaced or just cleaned well. This is the usual cause of the vac shutting off especially if you\'ve tried the dial in several different settings. Hope that helps!

I have the electrolux vacuum epic series 6000 SR and bought it used therefore I dont have a manual. I have had it for about a yr and it worked great..it looked like it should have a filter but I didnt...


1. A manual can be downloaded from:
http://www.aerusvacuums.com/support/manuals/.
The Epic 60006500 is located under "Older Models". Download the Epic 6500 manual

2. Check for clogs in the hose and the power nozzle inlet.
3. Disconnect hose. Turn on vacuum. Does it run? If so, place hand over intake? Did it shut off? If it did, the problem is a worn out or broken component inside the vacuum. Generally a result of using generic "made to fit" Electrolux bags. This is a part that needs to be replaced in an authorized Aerus (Electrolux) shop.
