Usually there are screws on the bottom, normally 6-12 screws. Once they are out, there may tabs on the outside of the base fram, lightly use two flat head screw drivers and pull the cover away from the base.. be gentle as this plastic is thin, and could break. You will also need to make sure that the handle assembly is in the down position as the cover can get caught up in the handle when you try to remove it.

I have an old AP 200 Electrolux Canister Vacuum cleaner. Can,t figure out how to take it apart to check the main switch & motor. What is the trick to getting it apart?


The whole thing comes apart like a puzzle. The side rubber pieces on each side slide outward to front of machine. After they are removed everything comes apart. Make diagrams so you will not forget how to put back together. If you need any more help, let me know. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Need to replace the main control board


Your best solution is to call Electrolux Home Care and find your nearest warranty station, even if you are no longer covered.
They will know how to perform this fix conveniently...unless you already have the new SUMO board. If that's the case contact me here, if that's possible, and I'll try to lead you thru the steps.

I have a electrolux Pronto 2 in 1 and the suction really never seems strong plus the brush in the base doesn't turn and the vacuum has been plugged in for two days. how can I get more suction and make the...


There is a filter inside the main filter. Once that filter gets clogged it will loose suction. Pull the filter and clean it, you can wash it by hand. Turn the unit roller side up and check for a small screw cover that you can use a dime to loosen. This cover is used to remove the roller unit. Once out check and clean then check the gear assy. for miss-alignment.

Have them replace at the Aerus Electrolux shop. Aerus uses a higher grade plastic (Lexan, read about it on the net) which should last the life of the the power nozzle and wands. The part and labor will have a 1 year warranty.

I am having a problem getting one of my brushes off. The other 2 came off very easily. Is there a trick to romoving them? Also, do I use the knaplifters before or after shampooing?


This is the Floor Pro for those wondering.
Generally, giving the brushes a quick tug with a counter-clockwise twist will get them right off.
The naplifters can be used either way, but generally are used after shampooing. Be aware that if you happen to have Berber or any looped carpet, absolutely don't use the naplifters. (I hate Berber!)
For best results, use naplifters, vacuum slowly, shampoo (1 cap of shampoo per line of water), use naplifters, allow a couple hours to dry, vacuum slowly. Vacuuming slowly removes the maximum amount of dirt from the carpet and even under pad.

Splitting the shell on Electrolux Epix 6500


With the vacuum on flipped on it's top and the bag door open, wedge a screw driver between the rear cover and the bumper. Gently tap the side of the screw driver blade toward the front of the machine. Make sure you pay very careful attention to where everything goes. It is very specific inside for reassembly.

Electrolux z4494 vacuum cleaner mains cable wont stay out


Opened up case as follows:
- Open lid of bag chamber. Remove lid by gentry prising the hinge arms slightly further apart so the hing unclips from the body.
2 deeply recessed screws now accessible at rear edge of bag chamber - undo.
Prise out large button of on/off switch to reveal another screw - undo
Prise out large button of cable retract to reveal another screw - undo.
Cover now lifts off.

Inside I found the brake wheel had fallen out of its plastic bracket. The plastic bracket is hinged, and moved my pressing one end with the big button, which lifts the wheel away from the cable drum. Gently prised the bracket arms apart and put the brake wheel back in.
Solved it - but don't know why it happened, or whether it is likely to happen again.

Motor shaft wont turn on EL2050


Have you tried running the brush motor without a belt on it? Does it not spin without the belt? If so, you may have worn motor brushes (not too expensive parts, but make sure you order both brushes, or make sure they are sold as a set). If your motor is in good condition (you can check the brush motor by hooking it up to a momentary power source NEVER apply constant power to a motor that is not mounted to either the machine or something to keep it from running away) There is sometimes a switch down towards the brush head assembly that could be bad.
