How to fix a broke cable inside a reel in Electrolux Ergospace ZE2262


If the vacuum runs well with no other problems it may be worth buying a new cord reel. It may be less expensive to purchase a new vacuum but it may not last as long as an older machine. I have many 10 to 20 year old vacuums brought into my store for routine maintenance. Do not try to replace the cord as you are correct, the spring come flying out.

I have a Eureka Contour model 2900 type A upright vacuum, the roller works fine nothing clogged, took it apart motor blade is free of debris, no suction from tube and blasts OUT air from the front HEPA...


Even with your explanation,it seems the hose is clogged.Try taking the hose off,then blow through it or pour water through it.If this doesn't do it,make sure the suction canals are going to the proper areas.

Tristar vacuum has wiring pulled loose inside and I cannot figure out how to open the vacuum. It is a 1997 model. It appears that the rubber seal is holding the two halves together.


I have the same problem with my older '80s Tristar.
This may work for your model, give it a try.
On mine, there are 3 phillips head screws holding the two halves of the cleaner together, and the rubber bumper.
You have to remove the screws first. Your model may have more or less screws.
On mine, there are two screws near the front wheels, down deep. I had problems taking them out, but not to worry, once they are loose, they are no longer holding the other half, don't worry about taking them fully out.
Also, at the rear, there is a small black plastic clip that has a screw in it. You'll need to remove that too. Once all the screws are removed, use a medium sized flat head screwdriver to go behind the rubber seal -- you're looking to get the screwdriver to where you can see or feel the edge of the canister. Simply twist the screwdriver a bit and the canister should feel like it's coming apart. Mess around with that for a bit, and the parts should come apart easily.

I have a Sebo air belt K1 How do you open the outer casing so as to replace the electric cable.


OK, but be warned... it's not so difficult getting the thing apart, but making a neat job of reassembly has been known to drive grown men to despair. And that's because you have to remove the airbelt. But first things first:
1. remove the hose
2. remove the hose-retaining ring
3. remove the flap that covers the green filter.
4. remove the screw beneath that flap nearest to the handle (there's a deeply recessed screw on the other side, but you can ignore that)
5. remove the clip at the back of the machine where the airbelt joins (lever it off carefully with a screwdriver)
6. this is where it begins to get interesting. The airbelt is in two parts - the bulky foam strip and a thin material cover. The cover is held in grooves, top and bottom, running all the way round the machine, by two thin plastic strips around which it is wrapped and which just slip into those grooves. The first challenge is to get those strips, and the covering material, out without damaging them. Just prise one end out with a small screwdriver and work your way around the machine - it's more a matter of patience than anything else. (The second challenge is getting it back neatly!)
7. remove the ends of the foam strip far enough to reveal two plastic clips that hold top and bottom of the body together
8. prise those clips off with a screwdriver.
9. it should now be possible to lift the top cover off. It can be a bit fiddly getting it off over the neck where the hose plugs in, but it does come off.
10. the cable rewind spool is now revealed in all its glory.
11. if you've found my advice helpful so far, here's a final piece... don't try to fit a new cable to the old spool - fit a complete new spool.
12. good luck!

I value feedback, so please remember to rate this response.

I need to replace the cord. There is a short near the housing.


hi may i suggest ? if you wish to renew the complete cord/wire? why not fit a longer length to facilitate more reach thro different rooms from the preferred wall socket ? the problem of short /breakage of wires within outer sleeve near casing is common on lots of vacs it is not a difficult job to replace if you are competant with wire and colour codes remove the access cover where wire enters vac then observe the attachment of each wire ? then disconnect faulty cable transfer the rubber tube that is normally fitted at entry point to vac at this point to new cable remove outer sleeve of new cable same length as old cable to reveal the inner wires then connect to vac sockets resecure cable to vac as previous dont forget the rubber tube? refit entry cover and fit a new 3 pin plug bs kite marked ? then away to vac the rooms? hope this helps

Dyson DC04


you have to remove the yellow switch but to do this there is a small hole at the side of the switch nearest to the machine you have to push something in this which will push the clip that is holding the switch if you can do this there is a screw behind this that allows you to remove the switch

Take off the strip that runs around it, then you can get to the casing clips, remove them and the 2 halves come apart.

Electrolux contour 1100 flexihead. Z1436


You need to unscrew the screw at the back / base of the handle. The whole handle section will need to be slid backwards. Best way is to unscrew the screw on the rear approx 5 turns and then bump the end of the screwdriver. A few more turns then bump the end of the screwdriver again. The whole handle will eventually slide backwards and fall off. Then unscrew the two screws at the front (near switch) and the front switch cover plate will lift up (hinging at the top). This reveals the incoming wires etc.
