The top and bottom of the canister need to be separated. The back won't come off without doing so. The user's manual doesn't cover that.
This is a repair that really should be taken care of by an authorized Aerus Electrolux technician. Taking it apart is relatively easy, however reassembling correctly is a bit tricky. Actually, disassembly is, too.
The best thing to do is take it in for a clean and service. That will extend the life of the motor by getting rid of any dust that has gotten through the bags and inside the machine. Other parts which effect the effectiveness of the vacuum also get cleaned. Potential problems can be found and corrected before they become real and major problems.

How do you get into the rewinder?


This repair should be taken to a expert, If you take this cordwinder apart and don't know what you are doing you could end up having to replace the cordwinder because of the spring tensioner.

Cord will not retract on epic 6500 sr


Try tipping it on its end,or nearly so. Then tug gently and release until it retracts. This has worked for me nearly every time I'd tried on various Electrolux vacuums.
If this doesn't work, the vacuum needs to be taken to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store for repairs.

I have the electrolux vacuum epic series 6000 SR and bought it used therefore I dont have a manual. I have had it for about a yr and it worked great..it looked like it should have a filter but I didnt...


1. A manual can be downloaded from:
http://www.aerusvacuums.com/support/manuals/.
The Epic 60006500 is located under "Older Models". Download the Epic 6500 manual

2. Check for clogs in the hose and the power nozzle inlet.
3. Disconnect hose. Turn on vacuum. Does it run? If so, place hand over intake? Did it shut off? If it did, the problem is a worn out or broken component inside the vacuum. Generally a result of using generic "made to fit" Electrolux bags. This is a part that needs to be replaced in an authorized Aerus (Electrolux) shop.

The cord on my electrolux Epic 6500 has been pulled too far out and will not rewind. How can I access the cord reel to rewind?


There are two keys holding the body together, underneath the bumpers on the side of the vac. With the bag door open these keys when gripped with pliers will slide forward to release the body panels.

Before opening the vac, gently push the cord back inside the housing.
2 possibilities:
If the spool rotates and allows the cord to push in , the body must be disassembled, and the cord winder removed and the spring reloaded. This is tricky work. you will need to wind the entire cord onto the spool, then load 3.5 rotations onto the coil spring for tensioning, then reassemble. It's a bit like working on a land mine of you're new at it. Wear safety glasses.

BUT if the spool is locked from the outside and the cord wont push in or pull out, a fine , long blade screwdriver can be inserted diagonal to the body through the cord slot and with luck you can lift a cog of the spool releasing tension and the rewind will work. try that first , but be gentle . You must release the cord spool allowing a a dog ear catch cog to release inside by gently lifting upwards.
Post back to say how you made out,
Or look for an AERUS Electrolux service shop.

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

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