    There are two electical connections on the back of the rewinder. As the wires are exact length it is difficult to attach them to the wrong spot. The one the majority of people miss is the one at the bottom of the rewinder. It is a wide terminal with a narrower tip. The wide portion has to fit through the fitting at the back and bottom of the motor. Then the 2 piggy back wires should be slid onto the narrow part. Use needle node pliers to help. If you just slip the piggy back wires on, the temperature light will come on and the machine will only run if it happens to the touching the electrical fitting from the motor. Great way to have a fire! Also, when viewing from the left side near the rear, there is a white wire from the bag sensor that has to be slipped onto a (spade) terminal which already has 2 other wire connected. Easy to miss. Took me a while to figure out, but it works.

Turn the knob on the top of the canister all the way to the right and try it again.

Accessory compatibility between Electrolux Models 1521 and Epic 6500 SR

No, they have different connectors. 1521 uses a pigtail hose that has little metal clips. 6500 has a plastic end with an arrow that helps guide you for proper placement. Unfortunately you will need 2 separate hoses for the respective models.

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.
