\015\012I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
\015\012I believe the part you are taking about is the fan and the fans generally are installed by a reverse thread and screws off counter clock wise. Once you removed the fan or the wheel you can use a blower and blow the motor clean, remove the carbon brushes and use a pipe cleaner to clean out the carbon brush holders and then re-install. Also free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages under vacuums.

The removable filter at the front is cleaned regularly, and is not clogged. However, the machine appears to be suffering from being clogged by dust, as it has started to make a high pitched noise, and I fear it may burn out. I can see some dust inside the front panel but cannot see how to remove the front to clean it out. (NB. I have located two screws - one on either side - but cannot see how to proceed further.) Please help! Thank you.
