Oops. Don't. First blow it out with another canister vacuum or air hose. That's usually sufficient for removing dirt and dust. For dust/dirt in the motor, use a motor cleaning spray that can be picked up at most auto parts stores. One that evaporates quickly and doesn't leave a sticky residue. One's called Electric Motor Contact Cleaner by Gunk (http://www.gunk.com/CAT_NM1.asp). There are others.
Hobby shops may also have one available called Dynamite Magnum Force 2 Motor Spray.
It shouldn't be that dirty unless someone has been using generic "made to fit" Electrolux bags. Or if water or other liquid has been vacuumed, resulting in rust, etc.

Keep in mind that reassembling the vacuum is more difficult than taking it apart. If not done so correctly, various problems may result. While you have it apart, it would probably be a good idea to use pipe cleaners to clean out the tubes connectiong the "control valve assembly" to other parts of the vacuum. Also, unscrew the knob at the top of the "cva" to check for wear and breaks. Clean dust thoroughly from all interior parts.

Accessory compatibility between Electrolux Models 1521 and Epic 6500 SR


No, they have different connectors. 1521 uses a pigtail hose that has little metal clips. 6500 has a plastic end with an arrow that helps guide you for proper placement. Unfortunately you will need 2 separate hoses for the respective models.

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.

Parts for Electrolux Epic 6500


You need to look under AERUS Electrolux to find a Dealer with parts.
Electrolux USA sold the brand name back to AB Electrolux of Sweden a few years ago and there is no relation between the two.
You may also find a common component of a different color at a Tri Star dealer as they shared some power head and hose technology in the era of the EPIC although they don`t tell people that
