How do I gain access to the motor of an Electrolux 2000 canister vacuum. The air intake on the motor must be partially blocked as there is a loss of suction and the motor makes that high pitched whine like...


Dismantling the vacuum probably won't help much, and reassembling can be a bear.
To check the intake, remove bag and look into bottom of bag well. It there's a filter there, remove it and check intake at bottom of bag well. Clear if there is.
The afterfilter on a canister is located beneath the air diffuser grid on the top of the machine where the tools can be attached. Remove this cover and there should be a white filter. Yours is probably black, or at least real dirty, if it's never been changed. This also blocks the airflow, reducing suction, and potentially damaging the motor. Extremely dirty filters are an indicator of how much dust is getting into and through the motor. This is usually caused by using generic bags rather than the genuine Electrolux, now Aerus, bags.
It is also an indicator of another internal problem on some other Aerus and pre-Aerus Electrolux vacuums.

My vacuum is making a high pitched sound and has no suction from the hose?


hi, what this points towards is a blockage either in the pipe or where the filters are, if you dont unblock it then it will over heat and blow the motor.

This is a very common fault for this make of vac and they dont tend to last long anyway.

Your best option would be to remove the part you empty and take out any filters you can get access to give the filters a good clean by banging them on a wall to remove any build up of dust and hair.

The have a look at the pipe try and take the pipe off the usual place for blockage is where the pipe goes into the vac so check here for blockage its usually just a build up of stuff you have vac up that has caused a blockage.

as you have no suction from the hose you would then have no suction at the floor part so dont try using it like it is . you need to remove the hose its either screwed in or held in by two plastic clips that you can push with a screwdriver once you have undone this you should be able to see the blockage.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
