Having problems with your Electrolux EL4100A Ergospace Cannister Vacuum ?

My Ergospace Vacuum took some apple juice in and now it makes strange noice and even threw out some sparks. Is there anything I can do my self or is it over with this vacuum cleaner? I opened 6 screws, but I still can't open the motor cover. Are there some hidden screws?


Answers :

Liquid plus electrical parts always ends up with the electrical parts losing. Juices, although they will dry, will leave behind a sticky residue. You'll need to replace at least the motor, but due to the other electrical components, probably be better off replacing the whole thing.

\015\012The hidden screws are beneath the control panel. There are two tabs beneath the panel cover. Using a thin bladed screw driver release these to pop of cover. You may need to use a flashlight to be able to see the tabs and make sure they get released. If the tabs break, the cover won't stay on. Under the cover are two screw that need to come out.
\015\012There are two more tabs in the bag well that need to be released. Remove the bag and at the top of the back of the tank you'll see two tabs. Do so with a screw driver. After this the top of the machine can be lifted off with some manipulating.
\015\012There are electrical motor spray cleaners you can use to try to get the residue off the motor, but it's doubtful you'll be able to remove it all.

I have a Royal 7910 extractor and even though I vacuum before cleaning the carpet, by black cocker spaniel's hair gets pulled into the plastic pick-up attachment and I cannot find an easy way to clean it out.

The orange power light on the body also dims. I assume the motor or fan is jammed, but I can't open the body to find out.

I have a Wertheim 4808 Barrel vacuum cleaner that has suddenly stopped working. I believe that there is a problem with the electrical cord connection inside. I have tried unsuccessfully to open the compartment that leads to that area. One side unscrewed with a phillips head screwdriver but the other side seems to have a different type of fixing screw that I am unable to undo. It is awkward to get at and in a deep slot and the head of the fixing screw? is not visible.

Our plug got pulled out (by driving away while the canister was still plugged-in after a vacuuming the car). How can we open up the unit to reattach the wires? We accessed two sets of screws (2pairs) toward the bag-end (not the motor-end) of the canister, but we can't locate any access for the two other apparent screws inside the body.

Then you should have access to the wires which can then be ... Electrolux EL7020A Oxygen 3 Ultra Canister Vacuum Cleaner Bagged Vacuum

Also turns easily until it engages the carpet. Self propel function works just fine.
