Question about Electrolux Epic 6500 Vacuum

Repair my Electrolux 2100 cannister vacuum cleaner

The bag full light comes on and shuts the motor off even with a new bag installed. I have the new control to change it out but can not figure out how to get the outer shell open so I can get inside to change the part.

On my 6500, I just disconnected the air line from the switch and now the vaccuum won't sense the bag pressure; I just have to check the bag myself now.

I have a 2100 Electrolux cannister vac. I have just noticed an odd odor (similar to burning) and the protection mode light went on. Can you advise of steps to take to rtrouble shoot and what might be...


The motor is probably burning out, or has. Smell the exhaust port. If the odor is especially strong, here, then that's the problem. You'll need to take the vacuum to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store for definite diagnosis and repair/replacement of parts.

Electrolux 2100 vac dies when you attach hose even with new bag.


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 will need to follow the instructions on a previous post to open the Electrolux plastic canister vacuum, and remove the bage cage. Once you remove the bage cage you can change the control valve, and this will solve your problem with the bag full indicator.

Bag was full, changed it, the unit now turns off


Try dialing the control valve to the mid way position. If the unit still shuts down with the bag full light on you have a damaged control valve under the dial on the top of the vac.
This valve failure is common in this model and can only be repaired by someone with original AERUS Electrolux repair parts, generally at an AERUS repair shop.

Full Bag Shut-off Comes on With New Bag and No Hose


The control valve has gone bad. This is the dial that you move on the top of the vacuum that has little indents on it.
You cannot do anything to bypass this problem from outside the machine.
This is not a repair that you can make yourself. You should look in your local yellow pages for Aerus (new name for electrolux) under vacuum cleaners, or go to www.aerusonline.com and find your local dealer. It is not too expensive to have fixed, it is a common issue with later model electroux vacuums.


You can try a test to see if it the valve. Remove the bag from the vacuum, look at the back of the bag holder near the motor, in the upper right or left depending on your model. You will see a very small hole 1/16 or an inch or so. Put a piece of tape of some sort to close off the hole. Replace the bag, turn on the vacuum, if it is a bad valve, the tape will override the bag full action, and the vacuum will run.

It is not advisable to run the vacuum this way since it will overheat, damage the thermostat, and can destroy the motor. A motor will cost over $200.00, the valve can be replaced for a lot less….

Aerus Model 152C- vacuum doesn't run


it probably does think you have a full bag.make sure you have it cleaned out and has a bag in there or it might be the sensor for the vacuum and is not working properly. contact your nearest electrolux vac store.or you are not using proper bags.

Electrolux canister vaccum 2100


The filter for your Electrolux 2100 is located on the rear top of the machine. It is covered by a plastic grill. You simply place your finger in the rear of the plastic grill, push the tab in slightly and lift the grill up to expose the filter. The filter is approximately 4" by 6". It is NOT washable. Most Vac Shops sell replacement filters in addition to them being available at the local Electrolux distributor.
