For some reason power is running into the line that supplies that light. It's usually nothing.

How do you replace switch on Epic 6500 vaccum

You may need a ROCKER device for the switch, however before you go there determine if you can hear an audible click when depressing the switch, or if the switch just springs up and down with no click.
A click means a rocker is needed. No click, just springing up and down with an occasional click means the spring attached to the underside of the switch button is fatigued, you need the button and switch mechanism, same location but above the rocker.
Also post the issue. If the lights are on and the vac won't start or stop, the switch is the problem area. If it starts and shuts off with the bag full light on it is more likely the control valve. If no lights come on your problem is in the cord or rewind and could be a failed rewind spool.
The best and genuine switch parts are best found only at an AERUS Elctrolux store
Look for my post from earlier today and you will have full instructions on opening and checking the control valve and the entire unit.

What does the warning light with question mark mean on the Electrolux Epic 6500 SR canister?

It means to check the bag. Your bag is either missing or misaligned and has slipped past the little clear sensor or bag lockout plunger in the corner of the bag chamber at the door.
Remove the bag turn on the vac and push this switch, the vac should start when the switch is depressed. If not the internal switch inside the vac is misaligned or damaged. Please post back to confirm how you make out

What does the question mark light mean?

There is no bag in the vacuum, or the bag is not placed in the vacuum correctly.

In the lower corner of the bag holder near the door is a little black switch, this switch must be pushed in for the vacuum to run. This is a safety so you cannot clean without a bag in the machine.

Does the epic 6500 sr have to have a bag in it to start?

Yes, you must have a bag in it for it to run. This is a protection feature so that the motor isn't damaged. You can bypass it just to see if it runs by depressing the small button in the lower front right hand corner of the bag housing. If you open the front, you should see it. Just press it while the machine is switched to "on", and it should come on. Good Luck, and great buy!!

The cord light just indicates that the machine is plugged in and has power. In other words, you did great!

Warning Light

Check the hose and wands for a clog. Usually that light means a full bag, but a clog or restriction will also cause it to come on.
