SOURCE: Electrolux Epic 6500SR Full Bag sensor working, Does not Reset properly

The problem was a sticking switch that was not being reset. The vacuum on/off switch mechanism is comprised of two switches. One is the main switch that turns the vacuum on and off. The second is a shut off switch that gets tripped when the full bag sensor is engaged. This second switch is supposed to get reset when you push the on/off switch on the outside of the machine. The full bag shutoff switch was stiff and it, therefore, was taking a couple of presses of the on/off switch to move the shutoff switch back into the running position.

SOURCE: Full bag system works properly, but doesn't reset easily

Either there is something wrong with your switch. Which it doesnt sound like it. Take it to your dealer or call another one it sounds like the control valve needs to be replaced. I am a dealer 1-866-966-9350.

When you open the canister you eill see a little rubber hole that senses when your bag is full. This must be clogged. If you have another vac try to vacume all the dusr from this hole and any other opening inside the vacume that you can reach. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate this answer.

Why does it start, then immediately stop and bag light comes on?


My epic 6500 starts for a few seconds and turns off. With the filter light on. I take out the filter and it still does it. It only stays on if I cover the filter hole with my hand. Any solutions.

Just given what looks like a brand new Electrolux Epic 6500 series canister vacuum. I have plugged it in, there is a bag but it won't turn on. Is there something I have missed??


The Epic 6500 was actually manufactured in 1992 so in no way can be considered brand new.
First, make sure the plug symbol beside the dial is lit. This indicates the vacuum is getting power. If it doesn't light, there's a problem with the cord or the connections.
Second, turn dial on top of the vacuum so the smallest dot lines up with the arrow. This will allow for vacuuming finer dust for longer periods of time.
Third, check the afterfilter on the back of the machine. You do this by pressing the tab on the base of the tool caddy (in back) and lifting off. If the filter is dirty it needs replaced, or at least removed. Try the vacuum.
4. Detach hose from the vacuum and turn on. If it does, hold palm of hand over hole. If it shuts off, the control valve assembly is bad and needs replaced. The tubes connected to it will probably need cleaned. For this, It will need to be taken to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store for repair.
There are a few other things that could cause the vacuum to not run. See the following page for more information:

With a new bag -after turning vacuum on, it shuts down


This vac is prone to a control valve failure with the exact symptoms you describe. There is a dial valve on top of the machine designed to regulate how full the bag will get. The valve which sits underneath the dial on the vac likely has a broken plunger and will need to be replaced. Take it to an AERUS Electrolux dealer / shop for an experienced tech to work on.

What is the symbol above the "change bag" symbol?


When the bag is full, the "full bag" light will come on and will turn itself off. Replace bag (make sure there is no clog) and try again.
Hope this helps.
