SOURCE: how to open the case of a wertheim b20 vacuum cleaner

Take out all the obvious screws around the base and coloured top using the appropiate driver.   There is one screw under the flap used to hold the dust filter in place.   The flap is spring loaded and can only be removed (as I see it) once the top is taken from the base.   To remove the screw I used a pair of long nose pliers and some patience.   Once the top is clear of the base, other screws can be easily seen and removed.  

My problem was a badly worn bearing at the commutator end of the motor.   There was so much movement that the brushes would not follow the commutator with a result of excessive noise and sparking.   The brushes had dug into the commutator segments and chipped etc.

The bearing is permanently pressed into the motor end and cannot be replaced.   This means a new motor which, in my part of the world, was quoted as $250.00.    My neighbour will be purchasing a new vacuum cleaner but after 15 years with the old one he hasn't done too badly!

SOURCE: How do you open a wertheim 2000P vacuum cleaner?

Hi there,
SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. The ET2000 has a latch that is located at the very end of the machine lid (about 6 cm in front of where hose clips in. If you sit the machine up on its back end you should see the black lever that needs to be pushed in. Now I will also say that it is possible that you have actually been pushing this but the lid still wont open, this is because every now and again the whole latch moves itself out of alignment by about a milimetre. The easy fix for this is a gentle screw drive to assist the relesing of the catch, this needs to be gently pushed in at the same time as squeezing the latch (hand at top of latch screwdriver at base kind of toward the middle of machine). You should be able to get it open like this with only light pressure. Now of course if you need bags or filters please visit us at NelsonVacuums.com.au.
Kind regards Alec

Popped the lid open to change vacuum cleaner bag...now lid won't close. It's stuck at 90 degree angle. Is a button to release it?


Hi bndennis,

Please check the spring on your lid, it may be keeping the door open. Miele vacuum cleaners mainly use a spring concept for keeping lids open - merely pushing it down will lock it at the bottom.

Kind Regards :-)

Wertheim vacuum cleaner 2000 does not seem to be having enough suction


If you are sure the is no leaks on suction line, please check and clean the filter. The common problem on weak suction vacuum cleaner are leaks and filter clog up.

My 30 year old canister vac has had both the filter and bag changed, but everytime I turn it off the bag compartment opens and ejects the bag.


I think its time for a new vacuum cleaner.....sounds like the circuitry is malfunctioning or you have an airflow problem that is tricking the vacuum into thinking the bags full. check all hoses and airways for blockage

Sanyo vacuum cleaner bag


We have the Sanyo Transfomax 3 in 1 vacuum and FINALLY found that one has to use a screwdriver at the edges of the "hand hold" just above the Sanyo name (between black and green parts), to pop open the cleaner in order to replace the bag or clean the filter.

What a miserable way to change a bag!

I know this is almost a year late...but I just found your request. Ta ta, Rita
