Question about Electrolux Epic 6500 Vacuum
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.
