Question about Electrolux Epic 6500 Vacuum
Cord rewind mechanism is in rear of canister. Peeled back rubber trim strips on sides, only to reveal white plastic "I-beam." These appear to hold canister together top & bottom. How do I remove these white plastic stringers without breaking them? Thanks for your time Tom
To seperate the two body halves: 1-Set the vacuum on it's wheels & open the front door. 2-Place a wide screwdriver blade just between the reaer cover and the rubber bumper and tap the screwdriver on the side to push the bumper forward towards the door a little bit. 3-Grasp the bumper and pull it straight out. 4-Leave the vacuum halves together...flip the vac over on it's top. 5-Put your palms against each wheel with your fingers in between the body halves..pull each side out just a little and snap the lower body upwards. It will then come apart. 6-You can then mark the wires on the cordwinder for corresct replacement afer the repair. Make sure you put the bumpers back on each I-Beam before you put it back together. (they don't need to be removed). And the FLAT end of the rubber bumper is against the front door. Good Luck !
