Having problems with your Electrolux Lux 5500 Canister Vacuum ?

The chord will not retract? I can't find a way to get at it? I have the air filter part off. It is an ambassador vaccum.


Answers :

Hi,

for this model, there are no screws or anything to pry open.
First, remove the bag, from the unit and keep the door open. Remove the hose for easier operation here.
Next, both of the side bumpers must come off. They will actually slide out where the bag goes. Which is also why we are keeping the bag door open.

The easiest way to get the sides off is to use a flat screwdriver and insert it just a little at the back and then tap the screwdriver towards the front of the unit. you can use a hammer for the tapping, and you may want to have someone hold the machine as it will slide.

for this unit, when you have the side rails off, TURN THE VAC OVER so now you are looking at the wheels. You will want to remove the bottom of this machine. There are no wires or switches connected to the bottom panel. easiest way for this is to grab hold of the rear wheels and lift up.

your cord winder will be there at the back. Its probably just locked in an awkward position OR its actually broken.

Good luck

My 4 yr old Nilfisk vacuum cleaner has been working fine up until now.

We have inherited a Filter Queen Majestic Triple Crown Model 99C vaccum and have no owners manual stating the year it was purchased and parts available. Our power hose electic wire connection (about 6 inches long) which plugs into the main unit is split in the hose attachment end. The motor sound went instantly quieter and I wondered if this was why when I found this frayed electical wire. It has not been used since this problem was found.

I have an old Progressive vacuum cleaner that says "Hepa Filter" and "Whisper Belt". Not sure what the model # is.

I have a Z345 Electrolux cylinder vacuum cleaner, from the 1970s probably, but not used much. I have lost the guide. I forgot to change the bag before it was full.

No vacuum My Floormate has plenty of air moving, but no vacuum at the nozzle. When I turn it on, the filter hops up to the black rubber "intake", rather than staying in its spot. It seems to me that the intake should be in contact with the filter when the reservoir is installed. And I don't understand why the intake isn't closer to it, but it seems fixed there, almost an inch higher than the filter. When I remove the bottom reservoir and turn the h3000 on, I feel vacuum at the intake, and air

Wondering if the head is plugged up because it makes a sound like air is escaping somewhere. I've replaced the original cloth bag with a comparable "O" paper bag from Sears. I tried to see if there was a clog in the hose by placing a broom handle in the hose to see if something would loosen. I also cleaned the filter and the air filter. If the head is plugged, how can I fix it? We can't get the vacuum apart. Thanks.
