BE careful here. Do not fish a coat hanger in the handle.
The original hose has a set of detachable handle componnets.There are two metal screws in the underside of the hand grip.Do Not pry. Once removed go to the suction dial area underside of the grip. Observe the plastic fingers near the dial. These must be reset in their " track " when reassembling the handle.
Gently insert a small flat screwdriver between the rubber wiring contacts and the plastic tongue wraps around the socket. this tongue which extends from the hose handle adjacent to the metal tube. Work you way back to the hose area carefully separating the "hand grip cover" from the hose handle itself.
Once apart remove the obstruction. Carefully clean the two brass rings looking for any pitting. If pitted, gently polish by rotating fine wet/dry sandpaper around the rings, then lube with vaseline.
The matching contact fingers on the handgrip cover should be cleaned as well and gently tensioned to put a bit more presusre on the contact rings.
Slide the handle ONLY onto the hose. Once in place the contact rings will be visible. Now you can work the handgrip cover back into place starting with the two tabs at the hose end below the contact rings. To seat the small fingers at the control valve gently click into place before reinstalling upper handle screws.

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.

Why does the full bag indicator not work


Usually means there is something blocking the suction (like something stuck in the hose). Try taking the hose off and turning the vac on. If the indicator doesn't go to full now but does when the hose is on, something is in the hose. Usually it's right in the curve of the handle. If your model has a suction relief on it, try opening it up and looking in there. You can also put the hose on the exhaust and try to blow out what is stuck but do this outside as it can get messy.

Miele Callisto keeps turning itself off and has poor suction


Hi there, You don't actually specify how long it takes to turn off but this is normally due to a blockage in the hose or due to excessively dirty filters. Given that you have said the suction is low i would be inclined to think you have a blockage in your hose. Remove the hose and test suction of the machine again. If you have a notable improvement it is telling you something is stuck in the hose which you will need to remove.

I need help removing a cat toy from the handle that connects to the hose on my vacuum? The ball seems to be stuck in the curve or just below the curve before it enters the hose.


The handle needs to be removed to do this. Taking the handle apart and especially putting it back together can be tricky, so I recommend taking it in to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store to have the item removed. If you don't put it back together properly, it could result in an electric shock, and even a fire. I have seen a totally melted hose from someone trying to dig out an object, then the hose wiring shorts out and lights up.
I dislike having a disassembled machine or part brought in to be reassembled, and finding a broken tab that requires replacing the handle or part that's brought in.
Be safe, please take it to the shop.

Little suction


Most vacuums have an air intake adjustment. If this intake is opened,the suction is affected. It is on the hose usually and is a simple procedure to turn it to closed. If yours is an upright, there may be something lodged in the machine that keeps the air from flowing as it should. And of course, the bag or filter needs to be cleaned, emptied or replaced (depends on the type of vacuum) to assure good suction. Oh, also if you have a hose type vacuum, there might be something lodged in the hose. I usually take a mop or broom handle, remove the hose from the machine, and plunge the handle into both ends of the hose to dislodge the stuck item.

I have a similiar problem, but LED light does not flash. I have determined it is a short in the hose wire. THERE ARE NO REPLACEMENT PARTS FOR THIS MODEL OF ELECTROLUX. I'll never buy another Electrolux product.
