Answers :

Step 1:
UNPLUG YOUR ELECTROLUX VACUUM CLEANER.\015\012This is definately a belt change that can get expensive if you break\015\012something. I do not like the idea of a regular person changing this\015\012belt. I've seen people crack the housing the machine trying to gain\015\012access to the roller area. Be careful or just bring it to a shop. These\015\012belts last a long time anyway. This article will not work for newer\015\012Electolux vacuums.
Step \015\012 2:
Place your vacuum cleaner so\015\012that you have access to the bottom plate. Remove the screws and put\015\012them to the side. Flip the vacuum back over and lay it down flat.
Step 3: \015\012
Place a large screwdriver\015\012between the wheel and the cover. Do this over both wheels. Now,\015\012CAREFULLY pry the top off with a large screwdriver. You need to release\015\012it from the bottom housing.
Step 4:
Look near the ends of the roller. The\015\012roller will be secured in the vacuum housing with screws. You need to\015\012remove this screws in order to remove the vacuum roller. If you're\015\012roller resembles the one in the picture (the original roller probably\015\012will), you can slide the belt pulley out to remove any debris in this\015\012area. Use a scissor to remove any hair, string, and carpet fiber from\015\012the roller. Make sure the roller is spinning freely.
Step 5:
Check the vacuum hose. Make sure it is\015\012clear of any debris. Install a new vacuum belt by placing it over the\015\012motor shaft first. Put the vacuum belt over the roller, and reinstall\015\012the roller. Secure the roller back into place with the screws.
Step 6:
\015\012 Spin the vacuum cleaner roller a few times to assure that everything is ok. Reassemble your Electrolux Upright Vacuum.
There maybe a couple of screws in the top ....have you released the handle to let it dow into a flat position? it might help

I have an Electrolux LITE upright carpet cleaner - about 15 years old. Suddenly last night when using it, from the normal motor (whooshing) sound, the motor suddenly went very slow and with a slight grinding sound. The brushes are now just turning round very slowly and areobviously not picking up anything. Has the motor gone or is this repairable, or should I just get a new cleaner?

I also have a Hoover upright and I need to replace the electrical cord. I have dimantled the back, where the tools are stored, and the hose. I still cannot find the screws or whatever, to get to the area behind the cord, so I can replace it. I think I will have to take off the bottom too. Has anyone out there tried to do this? It seems crazy. This machine works great so I hope I can also put it back together. Thanks for the help.

Since I do not know your specific model I can only supply you with general instructions. Be aware that most of the time you only need to gain access to the on/off switch to replace the power cord. Also Make sure that you are replacing the existing co ... Vacuums

Wont re-assemble I took the bottom plate off to clean out the rotary bush and can not get the plate back on! I think it is the position of the roller but no matter which way I place it when i turn it , it flicks back into the place that means i cant put the plate back on!

November 2008 I bought a Simac Stirella 9000D steam generator iron. Recently its been leaking water out the bottom of the regenerator. It makes a noise when it is trying to get the steam to the iron and it works then but afterwards when the noise stops it stops steaming and I find a puddle of water underneath the regenerator. Also a little steam comes out of the water tank at the top. I understand this is happening because of scale in the base unit. Can I get something to get rid of the scale? -
