I can't say exactly how to do this, but when you can't find the screws to take something apart, they are usually hidden by something else. You did good looking under the bottom cover, but what you're looking for is elsewhere. If there is a seam or line around the middle where it looks like two halves fit together and you can't find anymore screws, use a flat blade screwdriver and GENTLY start to pry them apart to see if they start to separate. If it doesn't give easily, don't force it. Many times a cover will snap into place and then is held secure by screws.

    Take it apart again and clean the contacts with a pencil eraser. Also, you may need to remove the wires going to the motor and squeeze the terminals with pliers so that they are tight again when you put them back in place

    Open the door to remove the bag. Pull the side bumpers forward when the door is open. The profile of the edge of the top and the bottom of the vacum body is a "L" shape. The cross section of the bumper is a "I" and that holds the body together. Carefully lift up the top just a little to free the plastic end cap that conceals the cord spool. There are two plastic pins on the top and bottom that hold this piece on and they frequently get broken. (If that happens repair shops drill and hole and insert a screw.)There is a plastic protector plate that lifts up on either end and then is slid about 1/8th inch clockwise and then up.
    Copy the wiring pattern on the four male connectors on the motor and the wire spool.

Model Silverado Deluxe 1505. When I turn the switch on it gives power to the floor brushes but the vacuum motor isn't working.


If you have power to the "electric power nozzle" but nothing in the motor, it could be a wiring issue, especially if someone has been "servicing it" lately and didn't replace the motor wires properly.
If not, given the age of your Silverado, it may be the motor itself.
I am in the business of servicing and rebuilding them if it would be helpful. mickeymackmark1@yahoo.com. Good Luck! Mick

New bag indicator will not reset causing bare floor mode not to work at all and mode 2 not to vacuum dirt properly


Your top motor (suction motor) isn't running. Your vacuum has two motors in it. The top motor is the suction motor that runs on the first switch position and the bottom motor (brush motor) turns on with the second possition.
It could be the switch.If it isn't the switch, the only other thing it could be is the motor itself.
To check the switch, unplug the vacuum and then take the three screws out of the back of the handle. If you are comfortable with electricity, jump the black wire and the blue wire togeather and plug the vacuum into a electrical outlet. If the motor dosen't run, the problem is with the motor. If the motor runs, the switch is bad and needs to be replaced. You can get one at most any vacuum shop.
The motor could be bad or the carbon brushes can be stuck with dust. This is more involved and I recomend taking the vacuum to a vac shop that works on the "old" Electrolux vacuums. The new name for the "old" Electrolux is now Aerus Lux but you would probably get it repaired less expensively at another vacuum shop.
If you want to go into the motor housing you'll have to take the big screw out of the back of the handle and pull up on the handle to remove it. Next, remove the four screws holding the top half (motor housing) of the vacuum. Two screws on the back and two screws to the front inside of the bag housing. You'll need a long #2 phillips screw driver. Then pull up on the bag housing with a side to side motion.
With the housing removed, you will see the motor and can lift it out.
Check for any bad winding. You can smell them to check if you can't tell by looking at them. If they are burned, you will need to replace the motor.
To check the brushes, you will need a 5/16th" socket to remove the two bolts on the top of the motor and lift the top bracket with the carbon brushes off and see if the brushes move freely. If not moving or not long enough to touch the top part of the motor with the copper bars (the comutator) it would be best to replace the motor.
To reassemble the vac just reverse.
This is a long and difficult prosedure and I reccomend that you take the vacuum to a repair shop that works on the Electrolux.

I have a 20yr old electrolux central vac that the motor just went bad. in wondering whether to replace motor or replace whole unit i have found an electrolux unit and a aerus unit. someone told me elect....


Motor to replace or rebuild:

Depending if your motor just started to get noisy, you can take it to a private vacuum repair shop and most rebuild for around $80 to $100.00. Usually they replace top/bottom bearing and the armature carbon brushes.

If it's loud and vibrating and probably sparking. Do not bother to rebuild, the armature is now probably damaged and not worth the new parts.

Replacing the motor is pretty basic and usually saves you about $150.00. They're pretty simple to release out of the unit and are pretty simple to remove and reinstall.

To find out your replacement motor number you will need to find the stamped model number on the motor itselt. It is a 6-8 digit number. That is the Ametek Motor Model number. Ametek is used in pretty well all central vacuum systems. Motors range from $99 to $239.00

What would cause the suction to be weak?


Hello,
It sounds as though there is something stuck in the hose or outlet from the motor to the hose.

Does anyone know how to get the bottom off the electrolux Epic 3500 SR I need to check the beater brush? Thanks Jim


Actually the top comes off from the bottom base. Remove the underside screws, flip the machine over and gently remove the gray cover from the motor and brush assembly. Once inside, remove two more screws holding down the brush cover which is also part of the tunnel. It will reveal the brush, belt, and much dirt so be prepared.
