Question about Electrolux Epic 6500 Vacuum
Posted by Anonymous on
First, turn dial on top of vacuum counter-clockwise so the smallest dot lines up with the arrow. See if it stays on. If not, detach hose and turn vacuum on. Place palm of hand over intake. If it turns off, it's possible that the tubes connecting to the CVA (control valve assembly) are clogged and simply need cleaned. This should be performed at an authorized Aerus Electrolux store only.
Second, check the afterfilter. This should be changed after every six bags. It's located beneath the tool caddy on the back of the machine. Press in the tab and lift tool caddy. If the filter is dirty, remove and replace. If you're out, try running the vacuum with no afterfilter.
I mentioned the CVA earlier, and a broken or worn out CVA will cause the vacuum to not start/run. This is an internal part and needs to be replaced by an authorized Aerus Electrolux service tech. Use the same check as above; detach hose, switch vacuum on. If it doesn't come on, it's most likely a bad CVA.
