Can't open rear compartment

\015 Cord rewind mechanism is in rear of canister.\015\012Peeled back rubber trim strips on sides, only to reveal white plastic "I-beam." These appear to hold canister together top & bottom. How do I remove these white plastic stringers without breaking them?\015\012\015\012Thanks for your time\015\012\015\012Tom\015

Answers :

To seperate the two body halves: \015\012 1-Set the vacuum on it's wheels & open the front door.\015\012 2-Place a wide screwdriver blade just between the reaer cover and the rubber bumper and tap the screwdriver on the side to push the bumper forward towards the door a little bit.\015\012 3-Grasp the bumper and pull it straight out.\015\012 4-Leave the vacuum halves together...flip the vac over on it's top.\015\012 5-Put your palms against each wheel with your fingers in between the body halves..pull each side out just a little and snap the lower body upwards. It will then come apart.\015\012 6-You can then mark the wires on the cordwinder for corresct replacement afer the repair.\015\012Make sure you put the bumpers back on each I-Beam before you put it back together. (they don't need to be removed). And the FLAT end of the rubber bumper is against the front door.\015\012Good Luck !

I want to open a Hoover S3825 Elite Cyclonic Vacuum to see if I can repair or replace the cord reel assembly. Currently the reel slowly draws the cord back into the canister once it is pulled out. I found the mounting screws under the rear wheels once I removed the hub but I do not know how to remove the rear wheels, everything is plastic. The front screws are under the front caster wheels and I think I need to take a screwdriver and pry off the little cylinder wheel to get to them by rotating

Miele Cat & Dog vacuum gets VERY hot and is VERY loud. Hose has no restrictions and I have changed the dust compartment (motor) filter and the exhaust filter. It still gets hot when I run it with the top open and all filters removed, so I'm guessing the problem is with the motor. Should I be going into the motor compartment? If so, what am I looking for?


Hi\015\012\015\012The fact that it gets very hot could be due to a number of issues.,but the fact that it started making a very loud noise at the same time suggests that there might be more problems maybe brushes etc.\015\012\ ... Miele S514 Solaris Bagged Canister Vacuum
