Take a box cutter blade or something razor thin and locate the 2 screw covers on the handle. Pry the two covers off and remove the 2 hex screws. Pull handle apart. Done. Might want to check your elbow down on the power nozzle before you rip apart that handle though. 4 out of 5 times, the problem is in the elbow.

Need manual for epic series 6500sr


Hi,
Go to aerusonline.com. They have a section under the "surface" heading that you can download the manual. If no Epic 6500 is showing, use the Legacy manual. Same thing.
Hope that helps. :-)

Plush carpet setting on vaccuum?


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC41 Animal's cleaner head is designed to self-adjust to different floor types - so you don't need to bend down to adjust a dial. You can see how this feature works in the video below. In addition to this, next to the red on/off switch you'll see a silver brush control switch, which allows you to turn off the brush bar for hard floors and delicate carpeting.

Carpet manufacturers sometimes recommend vacuuming certain types of carpeting with the brush bar turned off - we'd suggest checking directly with the manufacturer of your carpets to ensure you're cleaning them correctly.

If you'd like any further advice on using your DC41 Animal, please email us at askdysonUS@dyson.com and one of our experts will be in touch as soon as possible.

Best wishes,

Jack

I have an Electrolux Epic Model 6500sr canister apart and I need the wiring diagram for it Thanks Jim


Unfortunaly I don't have that wiring diagram. I am sure that the service manual can be ordred thru sears as they are the carriers for this material. What excactly is the issue and maybe we won't need the diagram.

My epic 6500SR is not working. The power comes on


This is usually caused by your full bag indicator shutoff switch.
The control valve has gone bad. This is the dial on the top of the vacuum that has numbers on it.
You cannot bypass this problem from outside the machine.
The part can be bought at the local outlet. Go to www.aerusonline.com and find A local dealer. It is not too expensive to fix, and is a common problem on later model electroux vacuums.

Carpet brush turning on and off during vacumming


If the problem is only with the brush, and the vacuum motor is working all the time, then the most likely cause is a poor connection between the upper and lower parts of the machine. As you will know, the two parts can be separated easily and (especially if you do that often) the two little flat pins that make the electrical contact can become damaged. So check the pins, and the sockets they fit in to. If they are not visibly damaged, good contact can sometimes be restored by VERY SLIGHTLY bending the pins.
If you are able to check for electrical continuity between the pins in the brush part, then do so. If your machine has done a lot of work it may be that the so-called "carbon brushes" in the motor are worn out and are no longer making good contact so will need to be changed.
I hope this is helpful. If you need more information just post a reply and I'll see what else I can do. Please remember to rate this response. Good luck!

I have an epic 6500SR I'm trying to change the


You really don't want to get into the vacuum. You could cause more damage than what you have now. After you do get into the vac, the cordwinder is another monster to get into.
There are two strips,one on each side of the cleaner under the rubber bumpers. The strips have to be removed by pulling off the bumper and pull them out the front of the vac.This is not easy. After you get the locking strips out, turn the vac over and pull the bottom off. Then you can see the cordwinder.
The best thing to do is take the vac to a Aerus/Electrolux shop for repair.

Hoover WindTunnel Self-Propelled V Belt


when you released the end to slide the new belt on it allows the tension roller to slide into the wrong position. Remove the top so that you can see the roller, at the left side of the roller mechanism there is a screw, loosen it enough to allow the roller to return to the correct position.
good luck

Power head on epic 6500 does not work, is there a belt?


This is a bot of a blind guess, I don't know the model. But most power head cleaners I have worked on use the suction of the vaccuum to spin a turbo fan in the head (like blowing a child's windmill). The head not spinning is usually because there's not enough **** to spin the turbo fan. Check for:
Gummed up brush bearings (dirt or damp) making the brush harder to turn than it should be.
Poor suction caused by a blocked or partially blocked pipe.
An obstruction that is tactchin the beater or the turbo fan.
Blocked filters on the cleaner, reducing the **** and thereby not providing enough vaccuum to spin the beater.

Kirby Vaccuum Cleaner:


likely a broken belt. turn vac over and see if roller turns free. if it does the belt is broken. turn the handle on front of vac. turn latch under headlight and remove head. open bottom plate and return handle to normal position. belt and brush roll will lift out. reverse procedure to install. directions are usually printed on the head of vac under headlight.

Carpet Beater for Central Vac


Some of these types of hoses, if there is a male plug on the end that goes into the wall outlet, could be that one side of it is fused and will have to be replaced. When something happens like a short or a bad brush roll stall, this fuse will open up. If you supplied the model number I may habe been able to look it up and see. But if the hose end cuff comes off, then you can check it with an ohm meter to see if one side is open or not.
