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.

Remove handle from hose electrolux


You don't have to "remove" the handle from the hose to attach other attachments, just depress the tab at the end of the hose and pull the upper wand loose then use the "adapter" to use the dusting brush or simply snap the crevice tool in place to use. If the handle won't come loose from the upper wand, then the described "tab" needs replaced as it's locking up the parts. Hope that helps!

I have an Aerus Guardian canister vacuum with a clogged hose. The tiny stuffed animal toy is lodged right below where the swivel handle meets the hose. Switching the air flow does not dislodge it. I would...


Consider this. If your vacuum is still under warranty, removing the hose will void the warranty on the hose. I strongly recommend calling an authorized dealer/consultant.
Although it may seem to be fairly simple to remove the handle, there are wires that need to be disconnected in order to separate the handle from the hose, gaining access to the toy. And reconnected. If not properly done, attempting this may lead to needing to purchase a new hose.

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.

I jammed a deodorant cap into the entry hard plastic part of the hose. can I open that up to get it out?


What goes into a vac hose enters the smallest part. The handle is designed to be a small reducer to prevent some blockage so the obstruction must back out. Do not attempt to use a sharp coathanger as you could tear the inside of t the hose and do not attempt to push the cover deeper as it will wedge tight. Your best bet is to draw this item back out with another vac. Sometimes bumping,( not smashing) the side of the handle against a carpeted floor area while doing so will help dislodge the item. Failing that you will need to open the handle itself.

If you look closely on this hose there are several small screw covers which will pop out with a pin to reveal hidden screws. Once removed the handle will open like a **** shell and then slide off the hose. The handle must be carefully aligned when reinstalling and the wire covers installed last, with the handle fully in place.
If all else fails and you must use a wire coat hanger, create a small 190 degree hook at the end so there is no chance of a sharp edge cutting the hose itself if pushed to far. Post back with results or if you need more help

Shorten hose, Beam


If your Beam has a fixed handle RUBBER hose with switches and is deteriorating between coils, you can dismantle the handle (or wall end) with about 6 screws. If it has a swivel handle with switch it can not be shortened. If it is not switched and non electric, the cuffs simply unscrew and the vinyl can be cut and reglued with vinyl adhesive.
You will see once open the handle that the hose has fine wiring wound through its shell and this wiring controls the switching between the handle and the vac. You must unwind the hose from the inside handle stem, cut short with a utility knife and wire cutters and then screw the fresh hose end back onto the handle stem.
The hose should also be glued from the inside (after cleaning with a dry cloth) with a contact type cement suitable for rubber and plastic. Generally PLIOBOND is used.
Then splice your wiring and reassemble the handle.

Remove hose from handle on old electrolux canister


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.

Can the damaged hose 8 inces from handle be cut then replace hose


If the hose is non-wired then you can fix this yourself. When you Plug the cuff into your wall inlet does the vacuum turn on automatically? If so then you should be able to trim the hose with no ill effects other than losing eight inches of cleaning area.

If the hose has a switch on it's handle that turns the vacuum on and off, you will probably need a technician to fix the hose. Some wired hoses even have High Voltage lines in them and should never be taken apart.

Electrolux Central Vac Hose Clogged


John,

There are several handle types. The pump style has about 8 phillips screws that hold the handle together. Make sure it is not connected to the wall as some have 120V cords or direct connect pins to supply power to a motor driven brush.

The two halves will separate and if it has slip rings the tube will lift up out with the hose.

If this is a low voltage hose, there are three tabs at the base of the handle you press in and pry out the end piece. You will need to remove the switch contacts before the hose will pull out. Remove the phillips screw that holds the switch trim in place and lift out. This will allow the cover to be removed to lift the contacts off the slip rings and the hose will drop out.

Hope this helps!
