Having problems with your Vacuums ?

My repairman moved so I need to service on my own

\015 My repairman moved so I need to completely service my Electrolux Discovery 3 on my own. Any suggestions on repair manuals or other learning tools?\015

Answers :

Excellent question, however a D3 is basically a problem free vac. All you need to do to maintain it is keep a stock of fresh 4 ply bags and periodically remove the lid from the head and clean out any dust and dirt building up around the motor or brush roll. There are 5 philips screws recessed in the lower housing , accessible from underneath the head , Once removed the lid will lift of and you can vacuum any dust away from the motor and brush roll. There are two hex nuts holding the power head motor in place and if loosened they will change the tension on the brush roll and belt so check the tension before tampering with them.
NOTE On this vac a properly installed brush roll will stop the motor and kick out the breaker/reset on the vac if the brush roll is gripped firmly against the brush opening with a hand securely gripping it.
I mean grab it VERY tight or you will have it slip and blister your fingers. If the belt / motor position is too loose or if the belt has a broken tooth, it will rattle like a machine gun , because it is slipping.
If too tight it will kick out the motor rest continually.You can periodically remove the belt, turn it inside out for inspection and examine for cracking or loose teeth by rolling through your fingers and pull the brush up and slightly forward from its housing to inspect for hair and thread at the end of the brush roll. There are recessed ball bearings inside the wood on the brush roll and they need to be kept clear of buildup on the outside.
Spray any wheel squeaks with wd 40, with the straw in place, justy a quick burst and you can also do this on the very end at the centre of the Power head motor , however DO NOT spray the carbon brush copper surface area as WD will burn. If you are very methodical you can actually remove the carbon brushes which are offset and clean them with a dry cloth and inspect for chipping and wear. Pay attention to their position and do only 1 at a time. That's all. Electrolx 101.
Post back with how you make out.
PS parts come from an AERUS Electrolux source but a good pro vac shop can give you great service too as this same vac is now sold under several labels.

Eureka Boss Smart Vac 4870 evidentally overheated. Allowed unit to cool and observed a spark/smoke at outlet when it was replugged into the power outlet. Unit will not power up now. Circuit breakers in the home are fine. Is there a fuse that can be replaced in the unit? Does the unit need to be serviced? Is there a Eureka Authorized Service Center in Orlando, Florida?

My older Dyson DC14 (the purple one) early model with a clutch on the beater bar belt needs a clutch replacement. The bar has been cleaned and there are no worn or damaged parts so I conclude that the clutch at the motor end of the belt needs to be replaced.

Took my Miele Solaris canister vac in for repair as it wouldn't turn on. The repairman said to come back the next day for the estimate. I called and he said I needed a new cord reel and it would be $189. I drove to his shop and said I would wait to do it later, that I wasn't ready to spend that much. When I came home, it started right up but has no power and doesn't sound right, the noise of the motor is real soft, not as loud as before. I have this terrible feeling that when we decided not to
