SOURCE: what charge for this service?

Hi,

Actually there are no hidden screws on your Electrolux Epic model. This is the newer plastic body canister made by Aerus Electrolux. In order to open the vacuum cleaner to inspect the motor, first open the vacuum bag door and remove the vacuum bag. After the vacuum bag has been removed, keep the vacuum bag door open.

The two rubber furniture guards on both sides of the vacuum cleaner are actually what are holding the top housing and the bottom housing together. You'll need to slide both of these rubber furniture guards off in order to open the rest of the vacuum cleaner. They slide forward towards the vacuum bag housing which is why the door needs to be open.

In order to get these slides started, it's sometimes necessary to put a flat head screwdriver in between the back of the furniture guard and the start of the cord reel housing. Right after the rubber starts behind the word Electrolux. Fit a flat head screw driver in this gap, and it's sometimes easier to use a hammer, and hit the screw driver that's on the furniture guard facing the front of the vacuum.

With a little perseverance, you should be able to get the slide started, and when the slide starts to come out past the vacuum bag housing, simply grab the end of it with a pair of pliers, and pull the rest of it out of the vacuum.

Do this on both sides of the vacuum, and you'll be able to separate the two housings, and get access into the motor compartment.

If you have any problems, or would like me to take a few pictures of this being done, I'd be happy to do so. Please just rate my repair as helpful if you found this advice useful. I really do appreciate this.

Thank you,

Chris J.

SOURCE: I am trying to disassemble

There's a tab at the back of the rail that needs to be released. Turn the vacuum on it's side, slip the tip of a standard screwdrive into the space between the rail and the back of the vacuum, and tap lightly with a hammer. Tap toward the front of the vacuum a few times until the rail is far enough forward to be slid out fairly easily. As a side note, the rubber covers do not need to be removed to do this.

Cleaner won^t spray water


Helo There!
I the cleaner won't spray that is nit necessary mean the heater is clogged. Try to make sure if the pump is running (by listening to it, measure about 12 V on it). The pump has a hidden 3.15 A fuse in the cable harness (in a heatshrink). If that one is blown the pump won't work.
The heater is accessible after you opened up the base panel. Remove the tank assembly and look for the screws to the bottom plate. Loose and take out those, lift up the base panel carefully. Underneath, you will see a cell phone size aluminium piece connected to rubber lines. This is the heater. If you unscrew the mounting screws, lift up the heater, disconnect the rubber tubes. Take out the heater and open up by removing the screws around the edges. You can look inside, clean it if it was plugged. Assemble the pieces in reverse order and test the functions.
Good luck with your project!

Does the turbo nozzel come apart to repair?


Hi, yes, the turbo nozzle can be broken down with just a little time and effort. The two plastic wheels in the rear pop out, and then you'll see 6 screws on the bottom of the unit. Once these have been removed, gently pry the top and bottom pieces of the turbo nozzle apart, and you'll have access to the belt, gears, and brush inside. Good luck!

Power cord caught in rewinder, Sears bagged canister. 10 yrs old Model is 116.3285590C I replied earlier but don't know if you received the information. Thanks Bryan


Hi There,

I'm sorry, I didn't get your comment on your previous repair. In order to get the cord reel out of the canister, here's what you'll need to do:

I have uploaded a parts diagram of your model below so that you can follow along:

7dbc7c2.jpg

Step 1. Open up the tool lid as if you were going to remove the dusting brush or crevice tool from the top of the vacuum. Once the lid for the tools is open, simply grab the two arms at the base of the lid, and pull forward towards the front of the vacuum where the bag connects. You'll need to remove the tool lid completely from the rest of the vacuum. You may have to lift slightly upwards while pulling forwards to remove the lid.

Step 2. After you've removed the tool lid, now open up the lower part of the tool lid that covers the vacuum bag (Part 29 in diagram above). While this cover is open all the way, grab the two arms on this part as well, and pull towards the front of the vacuum where the bag connects, and slightly upwards, just as you did to remove the tool lid. Remove the vacuum bag lid completely from the vacuum cleaner as well.

Step 3. There are two visible screws that are now visible (The screw listed as number 16 that's directly underneath of the number 36) on the front corners of the motor housing. Remove both of these screws that are in the front corners of the motor housing.

Step 4. There are actually two more screws that are hidden on this model, that are located underneath of the foot pedal that retracts the cord reel. You'll need to now remove the foot pedal from the vacuum cleaner (part 36 on the diagram). In order to do this, use a flat head screw driver to pry off the foot pedal. Insert the flat head screw driver in the front of the pedal where the pedal meets the motor housing. There are 4 tabs that hold this pedal in place. Usually if you put your flat head screw driver in the middle of the pedal where two of these tabs are right next to each other, the pedal will come off right away. Insert your flat head screw driver where I have circled red, these are the two tabs that you want to pry off. Simply push towards the rear of the vacuum while the flat head screwdriver is inserted in between the foot pedal and the motor housing:

ecba94c.jpg

Step 4. Now that you have the foot pedal off of the canister, simply remove the two now exposed hidden screws (oh yea watch out for that spring that's underneath of the pedal! remember to put this back when putting the pedal back), and lift straight up on the motor housing. You'll now have full access to the cord reel so that you may push the cord back through the hole in the rear of the vacuum cleaner.

Please feel free to send me a message to chris (dot) jones (the rest of the address is under my name in the signature) if you have any questions, or need some further help in accessing the cord reel. If your cord reel has gone bad, we do carry all the parts for your vacuum, and we'd be more then happy to provide any part that you may need.

How to dismantle vacuum hose at the handle with the power switch on epic 6500


Good that you didn't just pry things open. If you look closely you will see several tiny plastic caps under which will be hidden screws. Remove the screws and gently separate the "handle cover" from the main handle, then slide the handle off the hose. Clean the internal handle contacts and the rings on the hose. Reassemble by installing handle onto hose fully to align contacts, then installing wiring cover portion onto the hand grip.
Any evidence of black pitting on the rings needs to be polished with fine sandpaper and the finger contacts adjusted for tension to eliminated further shorting. After cleaning, you can apply a very thin film of petroleum jelly to the contact rings for smoother rotation.

How to clean turbo brush of harmony electrolux and put it back together properly


Wait, there are two more screws that must be removed before the top shell will come off. They are located under the wheels. Pop the wheels out by simply inserting yoru finger or a small tool into the wheel and pulling straight up. Remove those two screws and then you can proceed as mentioned above.
When reassembling the head, if the shell does not snap back onto the base, check for plastic chips or other debris in the narrow slots on the underside of the shell. Clear these slots out and the head should easily snap back together.

How do I replace the motor brushes in my DC11? I cannot dismantle beyond removing the pipe attachment. I've removed the 6 fixing screws that are visible, but the machine is still firmly "together" as if...


Hi,

I've never worked on a DC11 but have worked on several types of Dyson uprights. The following may or may not be relevant to the DC11 but may give you a few clues.

On the uprights I've worked on, if you remove the dust canister, underneath it is a clip-on cover with what's known as a post motor filter under it. This varies between models from a simple fibre pad, to a plastic encased paper filter very similar to the one that goes in the top of the dust canister. Having removed the clip-on cover / pad / filter, there should be a few more screws that when released will allow the motor housing to be taken apart.

The site www.dysonmedic.com is excellent, but doesn't yet cover the DC11.

Incidentally, I've just repaired my fathers DC07 which appeared at first to be a brushes problem. When I got it apart, it became obvious that the motor armature had a worsening fault whereby it was overheating so badly the over-current trip on the motor kept cutting out. The overheating was so bad that the bottom of the post motor filter was actually burnt !
Searching on eBay, I found a complete replacement motor for £18 inc p&p, but no listing for brushes. You may therefore find a) it isnt the brushes and b) you cant buy the brushes separately anyway.

Good luck !

Turbo Brush roller problem on Electrolux Harmony EL6985


To get the bottom off, you have to remove the two big wheels by popping them out, and there are two more screws underneath. Once you remove those screws, you can pop the housing halves off and get to everything inside so you can clean it.
