I am the Sales Coordinator with Electrolux, and personally it sounds to me like your machine could use a service check. Your local Aerus/ Electrolux office should be able to help you out with that no problem. If you are having trouble reaching them feel free to call my office (570)326-1731 and ask for Liz. I hope this is able to help you out.

    It has a 25 yr warranty... I am not drumming up business by giving things away for free.... I will not discusss what could potentially be wrong in an open forum.... but as an employee of the company I have worked with these machines from time to time.... I am pretty sure I know the problem..... Any Aerus Electrolux location with a service dept. could help you.... which is why I said "Your local Aerus/ Electrolux office should be able to help you out with that no problem. If you are having trouble reaching them feel free to call my office (570)326-1731 and ask for Liz. I hope this is able to help you out." So hopefully you take my advice and call your local office. By giving you my # I figured if you could not locate the location closest to you, I could help. So as for a sales tactic.... If I was trying to sell you a machine, maybe I could see your point. I am just trying to help you fix the one you already have.... Have a nice day.

Electrolux vacuum has very little suction

If you have dogs that shed, canister vacuums will always need cleaning out.. try to empty it before it's total full more often, this should prevent it from backing up so much.

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 ergorapido does not seem to have much suction, it is also very quiet. is this just the way it is?? i am the second owner, i have cleaned everything.

I took mine completely apart, removing every screw to get to the motor which was full of lint, hair and god knows what. I removed all the debris I could by hand, put it back together, and it works like new. I think debris gets in if the filter part is pushed too far down and the hole in the cup is open to the top part. My husband wanted to throw it out but I figured "what the heck". It's broken, it won't get more broken if I take it apart, it's only a year old.

No suction; beater bar works. Motor does not seem to be running.

This model has a complicated trouble-shooting procedure that needs to be done by an authorized Aerus Electrolux service tech.
This is often caused by a bad relay board or a Triac. However, problems in wiring or swswiches, including the hose wiring.
I stress that this must be done by an authorized Aerus Electrolux service tech.
