Tune up Old Electrolux vacumm

Hi
I have an old vacumme that needs tune up. I left it in the storage for 5 years. Electrolux series 6500 SR.

Is it worth the money to fix it or just get a new vaccum for $100?

NO the new vacuum will last you like 5 years and if you get the old electrolux it will last a long time, but the vacuum should be fine it should only need a new bag and wiped down with a damp cloth

New is not always better. Parts are cheply manufactured out of plastic or weak materials and tend to break easily. Vacuums now are mostly plastic and many pieces just snap together. Getting them apart is very trickey. Taking it to a repair shop is shockingly expensive, but the actual work is quite simple once you crack the code of how to get the thing opened up to do the repair.

The problem with the older vacuums is that parts may not be available. It may be better to get new. But you could take it in and get an estimate first, then decide.

Electrolux Epic Series 6500 SR. The machine is 15 yr. old & is working beautifully. However, when operating it emits a terrible stink, like cat *****. I've changed bags & filters but no ch


You need to have the vacuum cleaned out. If you are good with tools, just remove the motor and fans assembly, take the fans off and wash them. Brush ALL dirt out of the housing and reassemble. Your Electrolux dealer can do this but it isn't cheap. I used to be the service manager for my area. Since it isn't under warranty, you can have ANY reliable vacuum cleaner shop give a good cleanout. NEVER put anything into the cleaner to make it smell good. Electrolux cleaners get their power by having a straight through suction. The air goes through the motor. Adding smelly things can crystallize onto the motor and burn it out.

My Electrolux upright worked fine


Are you using the proper bag? There's a kill/reset switch that needs to be pushed down by the rim of the bag before the unit will run.
