Electrolux Epic 6500 Vacuum

Hi, the vacuum runs ok until you either put the hose in or a bit of obstruction in front of the aspiration hole like with your hand . I have checked the bag,it is new, the filter is also new, there is no clog anywhere.
Thanks for your help.

    My Electrolux Epic 6500 Vacuum shuts down with a bag check indicator when the hose is attached to the cannister, or if your hand is passed over the hole where the hose is connected. The bag is new and is made by Electrolux and the hose is clear.

Well, make sure the hose part is not clogged, this happened to my friends recently and their vacuum was smoking, if you're positive this isn't happening then it might be just the engine call the sellers, try to explain and see if they exchange for a new one or a refund.

My electrolux Epic won't stay running but it runs when the hose is off.

Check for a clog in the hose or most likely the vacuum valve on top needs removed for cleaning or replacing. Hope that helps!

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.

Electrolux Epic 6500 SR series

Ok i found a solution for my Electrolux Epic 6000 which had the exact same symptoms as you describe. I fixed it by disabling the "bag full sensitivity adjustor" (BFSA for short, for the lack of a better term). For that i opened the case, removed the hose that was preventing me from opening complety the casing, unscrewed the transaparent BFSA mechanism.

Here's the walkthrough:

- Open the case: Open the top part of the vacuum (where the bag is)
- Remove the 2 side rubber by sliding them from the back to the front of the vaccuum
- Remove the "plastic cap" at the end of the vacuum (you can slightly lift the vacuum top part to make it easier)
- Now unplug a small air hose to be able to open the case completely.
- Find the BFSA device and unscrew it.
- Now give your vacuum a try... it worked for me.
