Open the door to remove the bag. Pull the side bumpers forward when the door is open. The profile of the edge of the top and the bottom of the vacum body is a "L" shape. The cross section of the bumper is a "I" and that holds the body together. Carefully lift up the top just a little to free the plastic end cap that conceals the cord spool. There are two plastic pins on the top and bottom that hold this piece on and they frequently get broken. (If that happens repair shops drill and hole and insert a screw.)
There is a plastic protector plate that lifts up on either end and then is slid about 1/8th inch clockwise and then up.
Copy the wiring pattern on the four male connectors on the motor and the wire spool.
Post your wiring diagram and it will solve a lot of people's problem trying to reassemble this machine's -- including mine.

The easiest solution would be to call your local Aerus/ Electrolux representative, because the corporation doesnt publish diagrams.

SOURCE: Electrolux Model E switch wiring diagram

The black wire coming from the power cord connects to one side of the switch and the other black and the red wire go to the other side of the switch. If it turns on with the switch in the off position reverse the sides. Good luck. If you need anymore help just ask. Please rate me so I know if I helped. Thanks.

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.

Why does my 1521 overheats and turn off


Its probably full of dust and lint, and most likely has something wrapped around the motor shaft. Take it apart and inspect in and around the moving parts of the motor, impeller, shaft etc Best way if you are not too handy and poor memory. Either make a video of disassemble or detailed diagrams as you take it apart. It will make your life a lot easier when you re-assemble it!

Unfortunaly I don't have that wiring diagram. I am sure that the service manual can be ordred thru sears as they are the carriers for this material. What excactly is the issue and maybe we won't need the diagram.

How hard is it to replace the motor brushes on a electrolux model 1590 central vac. do they just pull out or is there a proceedure and any special tools required


No it is very simple. You will probably need a pair of pliers, wire cutters and maybe some wire nuts. Remove the nuts that hold the motor down (some have springs that hold them down). Pull out the old motor, there will be three wires that go to it, (2) power and (1) Ground. Most likely you'll have to cut those and splice in the new motors wires with some wire nuts. Then simply reattach the motor the way you removed it and that's it. Good luck!

The vaccuum overheats after about 10 min. i have cleaned out all vissable particals , is it the brushes? this is the electralux 1521 model


Have you changed the bag and filter ?
This usually happens when the motor dosen't get enough air over the motor to keep it cool. Try dropping a coin thru the hose and see if it comes out the other end. If it dosen't, try pushing a broom handle thru the hose to move the blockage. NEVER use a coat hanger or anything that could damage the hose and there are electrical wires that run thru it. If you still have the problem, take your vac to the Aerus/Electrolux store.

Need a wiring diargam to look at


You won't find a diagram.
You will have series of yellow and white and sometimes gray wires on the outside of the motor housing and often a letter code etched on the housing , indicating the original wiring from years ago, red, blue, yellow, however the newer wiring eliminated those colors.
These wires are almost fool proof as they will align with the longest wire at the furthest point,a center one piggy backed , etc however before starting please post back to advise if you have removed the rewind and or motor and if so, did you disturb the motor wiring inside the motor shroud.
Please post the original problem you opened the vac for as well and I will try to walk you through this
