Having problems with your VAX Appliances 2000 Canister Vacuum ?

How to open the motor housing.

\015 NOT A QUESTION, BUT AN ANSA............................\015\012Anyone interested in stripping down the motor area of a Vax 2000, (MAKE SURE UNIT IS NOT CONNECTED TO ELECTRICITY SUPPLY) first remove the 2 black cross head screws form the black plastic carry handle where the on / off button is. This effectively reveals the inside of the handle. At both ends of the open handle, where it meets the motor housing / body (orange plastic) you should find a 10mm bolt. The one about six inches below the on / off switch is obvious, but the one at the opposite end of the handle isn't. To reveal the other bolt head you need to unscrew the 2 black cross head screws that hold the electric cable clamp in place. With this removed, you will now see the second 10mm bolt head. Remove both bolts and carefully raise the orange casing. Be careful not to stress the connected cables. Disonnect the cables if you need to remove the motor. Before re-assembly it's worth tightening all bolts etc, visible inside the housing, as these may have loosened over time due to motor vibration. A fairly simple task, no expertise required. A 5-10 min job.Tools required - Small cross head screwdriver and a 10mm socket.\015

I have a raynor flight star garage opener. Had a lighting strike 4 days ago. All power is good. The opener even has a little green light on the switch that is attached to it. However the opener is not responding. Is there a way to reset on the motor by taking off the housing? I don't see any reset button on the out side of the housing.thnx w


You could always try unplugging the unit and plugging it back in. If that doesn't work the logic board is probably fried and unfortunately there is no replacement available for it any longer. You would need to buy a new opener. I'd recommend Liftm ... Vacuums

After tilting the bag sideways, there are two screws holding the housing visible, but there seems to be a thrid fixing inside the point where the handle shaft is attached - is the handle simply clipped in place?

Yes the handle is clipped in place and should come out when the button in front is pushed. Remove the screws you wrote about. After that the puzzle begins. At the bottom of the vacuum where the head is attached, remove the head by pressing the but ... Vacuums

My Sharp EC-l2TWT4 throws belts and I noticed the motor shaft was not running straight. My wife took it to my local dealer in Brainerd,Mn and they said it was fine.So I took it apart and found the plastic motor housing had melted at some point letting the motor twist out of alignment. Other than this, everything works great.Can I order this plastic housing piece somewhere?


I checked the schematics for that model and the motor housing for that model is no longer available. Your best bet is to either attempt to find a used part or trade it in and get a new unit. Sharp no longer makes any vacuums or parts which makes thes ... Sharp Twin Energy EC-12TWT4 Bagged Upright Vacuum

Miele S5000 (revolution 5000) vacuum cleaner - How do I open the casing? When the power button on the handle is pressed the green power-level lights on the handle light, but the motor sounds like it gives a little 'jump' but nothing more. 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've taken out to screws inside near either end of the handle, but to no apparent effect. I'm assuming the body is held together by plastic

Have Electrolux 1590 whole house vac, and can't see how to get brushes out. Leads so short, and don't want to break them trying to free brushes. Do they slide out of plastic housing? My eyes not real good, but it looks like the leads are part of a brass sleeve that slides into the plastic housing. It also looks like the plastic housing may be a snap lock type, but I don't see how to open it.

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

Recently my central vac system started making a louder than usual and laboured sound when in uise, enough so that I took note and inspected the canister and motor while running. The motor was trowing off blue sparks and looked like it could 'POP' at any moment. I will not risk using it until I know what the problem is and how to repair it. My assumption is the motor needs to be replaced. The system came with the resale house I bought 3 yrs ago but I do not know the age of the system itself.

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 have tried to open the machine from the bottom to see if anything is obviously wrong, but it looks complicated a
