I have a loud noise coming from the motor. Electrolux Epic 6500 sr Vacuum I have a loud noise coming from the motor. It smells like it is overheating. How do I open the canister to see the motor?


With the smell and the noise, it's likely the motor is shot. Unless it's seen heavy use, this is unusual for an Electrolux of this age. Or it could have been used to vacuum sheetrock dust, glass, or even liquids, possibly without your knowledge. Or "made to fit" bags were used, allowing more dust to get inside the canister and into the motor.
Unless other parts/accessories need replaced, it's much cheaper to have the motor replaced than to buy a new vacuum.
I recommend taking it to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store for a definite diagnosis (should be free), cleaning, and repair if needed. The technician will also let you know what other problems there are.
If you leave it for repairs, make sure you are given a copy of the work order for the vacuum that includes: type and model of vacuum, serial number, accessories left, your name and address, and an estimate. You'll need this to get your vacuum back. It's a good idea to also have this information written down at home.

The engine makes a funny noise and the brushes make sparks.


Hi
The bearings are not replaceable. If the bearings have gone you need to replace the complete motor

Electrolux Canister - Stops working after 1-2 minutes.


Electrolux Canister - Stops working after 1-2...
Our vac works for a short time, then shuts off and makes clicking noise as if trying to restart again. Works after cooling for a while but for another very short time. Your suggestion on fix would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks


I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure
I would advise that it could be a thermal switch or a regular switch that the thermal switch is over heating and needs replacement – there are small hoses in the door section that could have been pinched or kinked and it stopping the air flow from the vacuum – also check for a clogged or plugged vacuum hose, a full vacuum bag or a dirty vacuum filter. Check the thermal switch or reg switch or the hoses in the door. Or feel free to contact your local vacuum dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or call the factory @ the phone number listed below:
