Question about Electrolux Vacuums

1 Answer

I have an epic 6500 sr. I need to take apart the handle on the wand to clean it (I unknowingly vacuumed over a puddle of urine, yuk!) It is a replacement wand. I've unscrewed the only screw I can find and pushed out a plastic connecting piece, but I still can't get it apart. If I can't clean it, I'll have to replace it and I just did that within the last year, so I don't want to do it again.

Look on the handle near the wand handle release button for extension and there is a little round cover, under that is another screw...usually it is a tamper proof torque screw.

SOURCE: Repair manual for Electrolux EPIC 6500 SR

I don't have a manual for these but the trickiest thing about these units is taking them apart. If you have an Aerus/Electrolux dealer near you, it's not a bad investment to have them install the motor for you. You would probably receive a warranty with the work, and the things a long time. Great return on investment. But if you are determined to do it yourself, 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. Good Luck!!
