Question about Electrolux Epic 6500 Vacuum
Hi, as soon as I put the hose nozzle on the vacuum stops. It rins ok until you put a bit of obstruction in front of the aspiration hole. I have checked the bag,it is new, the filter is also new, I just do not know what can make it die like this.
Thanks for your help.
Ok i found a solution for my Electrolux Epic 6000 which had the exact same symptoms as you describe. I fixed it by disabling the "bag full sensitivity adjustor" (BFSA for short, for the lack of a better term). For that i opened the case, removed the hose that was preventing me from opening complety the casing, unscrewed the transaparent BFSA mechanism.
Here's the walkthrough:
- Open the case: Open the top part of the vacuum (where the bag is)
- Remove the 2 side rubber by sliding them from the back to the front of the vaccuum
- Remove the "plastic cap" at the end of the vacuum (you can slightly lift the vacuum top part to make it easier)
- Now unplug a small air hose to be able to open the case completely.
- Find the BFSA device and unscrew it.
- Now give your vacuum a try... it worked for me.

Check the air filter which is at the air output (blower) part of the canister, under the part where the attachments are stored.

You probably have a clog somewhere, also there is a vacuum switch close to the motor, check that. Those machines cut off if the vacuum pressure drops due to an obstruction.
