Question about Electrolux Epic 6500 Vacuum

1 Answer

I need to remove the handle of my Eletrolux 6500 from the hose.

I was vacuuming the car interior without any attachments. Apparently under the seat was a part of a plastic Easter egg that went right into the vacuum hose handle but is now stuck there because it's too big for the hose. I tried blowing it out but it must be lodged in there.

If it is in the tube part of the vacuum, you could poke it out with a long and skinny pole, or a meter stick. If it is stuck in the hose, just open up the part that closes the vacuum bag, and do the same with a very long piece of metal or wood, as a meter stick will not be long enough.

How can I separatte the ****** handle of my Epic 6500 fromthe hose? I have a wrapped pair of socks stuck in it at the handle


There are two different styles of hose for the 6500 vacuums. Please be careful when you take the handles off and also when putting it back togeather. To remove the handle there are two screw caps that you need to remove to get to the screws. You can do this with the tip of a knife or something similar inserted under the edge of the screw cap and pry up. The screws can either be a Phillips head or a torx bit. Remove the screws and then separate the top part of the handle from the bottom. Make sure to notice the position of the wires and do not unplug them from the switch or the contact block.The contact block at the hose end of the handle has two contacts that transfer the power from the hose to the handle and will bend out of shape if you are not careful. To remove the contact block, use a flat head screw driver under the block and pry up. On the older models, the handle will slip right off. If you have a newer model, there is a handle retainer at the base of the handle and will push out with a screw driver. It only goes one way and
the handle will slip off.
To replace the handle just reverse the procedure. Good luck.

My mother's Bissell 66t6 has a tear in the hose very near the handle. I'd like to remove all of the duct tape she put there and disassemble the handle so that I could shorten the hose by a few inches at...


I can't say for sure without seeing your model but this can. E done on most vacuums as long as it doesn't have electric wires to run a power nozzle. Some hoses simply unscrew from the fitting and some have an extra connector. The easiest way if it won't easily come out by twisting the hose counter-clockwise is to cut the hose at the bad spot and pull on the hose and it will come apart so you can remove it. Sometimes they have glue or silicone holding them in but if you pull you should be able to remove the old hose and screw the good part back in.

Electrolux Epic 6500 Vacuum - Suction stops when hose is attached


If the bag full light keeps coming on, you can first try adjusting the dial on top of the vacuum cleaner. If that does not work, then you need to change the control valve. This is an internal component of the canister and is directly below the dial.

You can ship the vacuum to http://evacuumstore.com/ and they can reapir it for you.

How to dismantle vacuum hose at the handle with the power switch on epic 6500


Good that you didn't just pry things open. If you look closely you will see several tiny plastic caps under which will be hidden screws. Remove the screws and gently separate the "handle cover" from the main handle, then slide the handle off the hose. Clean the internal handle contacts and the rings on the hose. Reassemble by installing handle onto hose fully to align contacts, then installing wiring cover portion onto the hand grip.
Any evidence of black pitting on the rings needs to be polished with fine sandpaper and the finger contacts adjusted for tension to eliminated further shorting. After cleaning, you can apply a very thin film of petroleum jelly to the contact rings for smoother rotation.

How do I attache the hose on an Electrolux Epic Cannister vacuum and have it lock into place?


If you are having trouble hooking the hose to the machine, your latch is mostlikely broken. This can be replaced. You can either buy the latch at your Aerus/Electrolux shop and replace it yourself if you are mechanical or have the service manager do it for you. There shouldn't be very much of a charge for this simple process.
If you are talking about hooking the hose to the wands, there is a latch that will need to be replaced. If so, the best thing to do is have the service manager replace the latch because there are wires in the hose handle that are sometimes hard to deal with.

Electrolux Epic 6500/ handle clip broke....


The clip can be replaced by taking apart the handle. Small round plastic inserts cover up the screws that hold the handle together. Use a very small screwdriver to pry them off, then use a small screwdriver to remove the screws(Some of the screws may be star screws requiring a special screwdriver. The top part of the handle will then lift off and you will be able to change out the clip. Before reasembling the handle, clean the contacts which attach to the hose and be careful that you do not bend the contacts. It is kind of tricky to put back together.

Good Luck

Suction loss when handle is tipped back to clean carpet


can any one help,
Our Dyson Animal vacuum has plenty of suction when it is upright and the attachments are being used off the hose, but when the handle is tipped back to begin cleaning carpets the beater head is getting no suction. As the handle is being tipped back you can hear what sounds like a flapper valve in the body of the vacuum opening and then all the suction just goes away.

How do you dismantle handle to replace aforementioned hose?
Swing arm on unit goes all the way to the floor. Is this normal? Is there a "stop" broken that caused the hose to stretch, and ultimately break?


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Hoover SteamVac Carpet / Upholstery Deep Carpet Cleaner.

There are handle screws that you can get into the handle and then you can back track the replace the interior hose for the cleaning attachment. There should not be a stop that caused the hose to stretch ad break. The hoses after a while do get old crack and break due from normal use or if the bend @ sharp angles, this is common among all vinyl vacuum cleaner hoses. You should really check with your local factory authorized Hoover vac dealer in your area or , please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
