Having problems with your Electrolux Vacuums ?

Have an older model Electrolux canister model. The electric plug is broken so I got a new plug to put on. When I cut the cord to replace the plug, the dang cord retracted into the unit. So how do I get access to the cord area so i can find the end to the cord!


Answers :

Hi,\012
\012You have to open the vacuum cleaner and look for the wire.\012
\012It is located inside the circular wheel, where it wind itself up.\012
\012Don't be afraid to open it, unless your willing to pay somebody just to install a 1$ part.\012
\012Just always remember when taking the screws off and make sure you don't lose any of them.\012
\012
\012Hope that helps you out!\012

Cord replacement I need to replace a damaged cord (the reel works). How do I get the top off so I can remove the back end? Once I get it off, will I be able to change the cord, or do I need to buy the whole reel assembly? (and thanks for the help - I love this site!)


You will probably have to replace the whole reel cord. Depending on your model, on each side, there is a bar in the middle that will slide off, then the 2 halfs will come apart. They will only slide in one direction. If an older model, there are s ... Electrolux Lux 5500 Canister Vacuum

I just purchased a Sebo Airbelt D canister vacuum. I plugged it in and used it for ten seconds then turned it off, retracted the power cord and now cannot get the power cord out of the machine. Did I not spend enough money to get a quality product? Does anyone have any idea how to get the power cord out without breaking the machine?

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

My older Dyson DC14 (the purple one) early model with a clutch on the beater bar belt needs a clutch replacement. The bar has been cleaned and there are no worn or damaged parts so I conclude that the clutch at the motor end of the belt needs to be replaced. I can find the part online but no instructions on how to disassemble the vacuum to get to and replace it. Dysons only advice is to give me the address and phone of the nearest service center. Can you help me?

My electrolux ambassador power wand quit working. I replaced the switch that shuts it off when the roller stops, but it wasn't the problem. The on/off switch is fine, the motor is fine.

We can't find any screws to undo that would open it up in order to follow the wires deep into the canister. We've bypa

No power. I was getting intermittent power with my miele s558 midsize canister, but it was predicated with me fiddling with the retractable cord to get it to come on and then not move the canister while I was vacuuming.
