This is a bot of a blind guess, I don't know the model. But most power head cleaners I have worked on use the suction of the vaccuum to spin a turbo fan in the head (like blowing a child's windmill). The head not spinning is usually because there's not enough **** to spin the turbo fan. Check for:
Gummed up brush bearings (dirt or damp) making the brush harder to turn than it should be.
Poor suction caused by a blocked or partially blocked pipe.
An obstruction that is tactchin the beater or the turbo fan.
Blocked filters on the cleaner, reducing the **** and thereby not providing enough vaccuum to spin the beater.

How is the belt on the power head replaced?


Well u would have to give me a brand manufacturer name or some thing but with almost all vacuums there are either tabs or screws on the top of upright or bottom of floor tool on sweepers. All you should have to do is remove screws to access belt, then pull out the brush and that should be it.

How do I find the belt on the electrolux epic 6500. My husband picked up a scarf end, and now the brush won't turn to clean the rug. A rectangular light came on, I do not know what that means.


Turn off power. Remove the screws in the bottom plate of the vacuum head. The belt is around the beater bar inside the power head. Pull the beater bar out of its bracket to access the belt.

Accessory compatibility between Electrolux Models 1521 and Epic 6500 SR


No, they have different connectors. 1521 uses a pigtail hose that has little metal clips. 6500 has a plastic end with an arrow that helps guide you for proper placement. Unfortunately you will need 2 separate hoses for the respective models.

Need manual for epic series 6500sr


Hi,
Go to aerusonline.com. They have a section under the "surface" heading that you can download the manual. If no Epic 6500 is showing, use the Legacy manual. Same thing.
Hope that helps. :-)

The motor on my Epic 6500 works, the hose is sucking, but the power head isn;t working... I tried the sidestep power head and that one works. Ive opened and replaced the belt and that is fine. The bulb...


Connect the power nozzle directly to the hose and try.
Check the terminals where the wand connects to the PN. If any are discolored or cracked, that may be the problem.
Open the PN and check for loose or broken wires and connections. Repair or replace as necessary.
The reset switch could be broken or worn out. You can check this with a continuity tester or multimeter.
If none of these solve the problem the vacuum needs to be taken to your local Aerus Electrolux store for diagnosis and repair.

Power head on my Electrolux Epic stopped working. Do I need a new one or could there be a part that needs replacing. Can I open it to see?


Have you tried pushing the reset button? I'd try that first. If that doesn't work it could be that the belt is broken. The motors don't go out very often on those.

Parts for Electrolux Epic 6500


You need to look under AERUS Electrolux to find a Dealer with parts.
Electrolux USA sold the brand name back to AB Electrolux of Sweden a few years ago and there is no relation between the two.
You may also find a common component of a different color at a Tri Star dealer as they shared some power head and hose technology in the era of the EPIC although they don`t tell people that
