By reversing it, I assume you plugged the hose into the exhaust blower on the top of the machine. If so, insert the other end into the intake and turn one the vacuum. This way the clog is also getting sucked at what should be the loose end.
If it's a sock or similar item, it will be more difficult. Yes, the handle can be removed, but can sometimes be a bit difficult to put back together for someone not real sure of what they're doing. I've seen several hoses ruined by having sharp or pointed objects inserted to clear a clog, cutting the hose and/or wiring, and ending up burning it up. I recommend taking it to a shop and letting a trained technician take care of it. An authorized Aerus Electrolux dealer would be best.

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.

Small potato (yes) stuck in hose, dont know how to reverse. tyvm


Possibly, find the location in the vacuum hose, where the potato is stuck, squeeze the hose there to force the potato to break up into smaller pieces that can be sucked through. If it is stuck in the "wand" the solid part, a straightened out wire coat hanger, may suit, instead, but be extremely careful with that, as the wire may pierce the hose. Alternatively, you can reverse, by plugging the hose into the "exhaust" .

Electrolux Epic 6500 Vacuum - Suction stops when hose is attached


If the bag full light keeps coming on, you can first try adjusting the dial on top of the vacuum cleaner. If that does not work, then you need to change the control valve. This is an internal component of the canister and is directly below the dial.

You can ship the vacuum to http://evacuumstore.com/ and they can reapir it for you.

I need to remove the handle of my Eletrolux 6500 from the hose.


If it is in the tube part of the vacuum, you could poke it out with a long and skinny pole, or a meter stick. If it is stuck in the hose, just open up the part that closes the vacuum bag, and do the same with a very long piece of metal or wood, as a meter stick will not be long enough.

Electrolux EPIC 6500 won't stay on


find and clean all filters,if an air compressor is available take it apart what you can and see if you can get to the motor and blow it out and check for restrictions in hoses,motor has overload protection and dirt will make it overheat and shut off when it cools down then it works again and or check electrical cords and sawitches
