On the bottom you will see 2 levers that slide to the side.turn those and the head should come off.there should also be a knob on the top to disengage the belt.once you get the head off you will be at the motor and you will see the impeller.you will have to take the motor housing apart to replace it though.the impeller should be held on with a nut in the middle

How to disassemble the back /the electrical part/ of Dyson DC44?


Check online for the model of Dyson you have. These units are not easy to take apart and you might have better luck if you have a repair shop locally to get help. Water and electrical parts do not mix well and you may have damage that is not easy to fix. The internet should have a manual on your cleaner and tell how to dis- assemble the unit, but most times they will refer you to a professional repair shop. Hope this helps. Viking.

How do I disassemble a Dyson DC26 Carbon Fibre Turbine Head (920545-02)?


Hi Kristian, it's Jack at Dyson.

It's very unlikely that an internal component would have broken after the blockage was removed. Instead, it's worth checking that the plunger is in the correct position. If it's pushed inwards, this will shut off the brush bar, so make sure it's pulled out:


disassemble-dyson-dc26-carbon-fibre-xjczme1b25opy5c2wdvfnwhk-4-0.jpg

If the plunger won't stay in the out position when you switch on your vacuum, this indicates there may still be a blockage within the Turbine head which needs to be cleared.

This should resolve the issue, but if you find it doesn't help, please get in touch so our experts can provide further assistance. Please be aware that dismantling the Turbine head any further than is shown in the User guide can void your Dyson warranty, meaning future replacement parts or repairs could be chargeable.

You can reach our experts by calling the Dyson Customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Why does my 1521 overheats and turn off


Its probably full of dust and lint, and most likely has something wrapped around the motor shaft. Take it apart and inspect in and around the moving parts of the motor, impeller, shaft etc Best way if you are not too handy and poor memory. Either make a video of disassemble or detailed diagrams as you take it apart. It will make your life a lot easier when you re-assemble it!

Disassebiling the unit body


It is fairly simple to get the unit apart, but putting the unit back together properly does require some mechanical expertise.

The unit is held together by the two side rails or "bumpers". Once these are removed, the unit will split apart in two halves.

  1. Ensure the unit is unplugged.
  2. Open the bag door, and remove the bag.
  3. With the bag door open, peel about one inch or so of the rubber from each of the side rails back
  4. Insert a tiny flat head screwdriver into the T shaped channel the side rail sits in and lightly tap it in about 3/4" or so
  5. Pull the side rail out using a needle nose pliers. Repeat for the other side.
Once you have the side rails removed, your Electrolux 7000 unit is easiest to disassemble and reassemble if laying on its top. Remove the bottom half of the housing first.

Here is a quick video of the disassembly.

I would recommend taking the unit to an Aerus dealer or a local professional repair shop for any major repairs.

We took the vacuum apart including all hoses and there does not appear to be an obstructiobn, what is causing the vacuum to lose suction


The fan/impeller could be broken or too worn to provide suction. Check it and replace if necessary.
Did you clean/replace the filters? Instructions for doing so can be found on page 16 of the manual.
Other things to check can be found on page 17 of the manual.
The manual is found on the following site.

I have a Kenmore vacuum cleaner 116.35922 and it's making a loud noise and not picking up dirt. I checked the hose for a clog and changed the bag. What else can I do?


Check to see if the brush is spinning when the unit is running. If not, the drive belt may have broken and will need to be replaced. Common sized replacement belts can be purchased at most department stores. Kenmore belts should be available at most Sears stores.

Another possibility is that if a large enough object was picked up, it may be lodged in the impeller, or impeller housing. If so the housing will need to be disassembled to determine if any physical damage was done, and to clear the debris.

We need to replace the Fan Blades on our Phillips Fan as they heve got very fragile and they are breaking up!


Yes-- This is the big disadvantage of this type of Vacuum--
Stones and sand wear heavily on that impeller turning a very high rate of speed.

This can be a tricky job----- depending on how long this fan has been on the motor shaft-- and if water has been passed thru this joint--
-- It will take a complete disassembly of the power section of this vacuum--
(I have seen a few times, when the impeller could be just hit a solid blow in the 'un-tightening direction, and the impeller spun right off- -- Very god, if you can get that response! :-) )

Most of the time one has to tear the motor apart, and get a solid grip on the armature (Clamping it firmly-- but gently in a vise -- and then beating on the impeller to remove it.

Naturally-- you would need to have the correct impeller ready to spin right back on the shaft-- for the old impeller will be ruined in removal. Be sure to put some 'never-seize' on the thread, to make it easier to remove NEXT time!

How old is the machine?
Ever consider trading it in on a new type of Vacuum?

Let us know if we can help more-

Hoover U5750-900 just shuts off


I have a similar bagless model U5757-900 that is shutting off. I disassembled the unit, and what I found is that the motor front bearing had accumulated enough grime so that the bearing locked up. When this happened, the bearing outer shell spun in the plastic housing, causing it to soften, from friction heat. This allowed the motor shaft to become off center from the normal, centered axis of rotation. Once this happened, the rotor inside the motor began to rub against the stator, the fixed part of the motor inside. This loaded down the motor, causing excessive current draw, which caused the overheat switch to activate, shutting down the machine.

In your case, it might not be as bad as in my case.

Remove the dual-cannister dirt cup.

To find out, disassemble the unit lower section: on bottom, remove 4 screws around the rotating brush housing. Remove the brush cover, then remove the brush, then remove the belt. Remove the wide plastic housing behind the brush. Remove the two screws, from the bottom, that retain the upper hood. Remove the hood.

On the back, remove the two screws and hose retainer going from the base to the upright section. This releases the hose from the lower section.

Now press the tilt release, and lay back the upright section. Remove the four screws, two on each side, from the trunnion caps, where the upright section tilts on the lower section. Remove the trunion caps. Remove the upright section from the lower section.

Remove the headlight cover (2 screws).

From the back, remove the single screw retaining the bezel above the headlight area.

Slide the bezel upwards and remove.

Remove the four screws that retain the motor cover clamshell. One is from front, and other 3 from rear.

Open motor clamshell halves to expose motor.

Note orientation/position of the three wires on the motor, and remove those wires. Lift motor out.

To open the motor, gently tap the edges of the impeller housing (aluminum shell) on the edge of the shell, in the little gaps around the shell.

Using a 1/2" socket, remove the nut in the center of the impeller. This is a LEFT HAND NUT. TURN RIGHT TO LOOSEN IT.

Gently wiggle the impeller while pulling until impeller comes off of motor shaft. Use a glove so the impeller doesn't cut your hand.

Remove the large flat washer on the motor shaft. Remove the small sleeve from the motor shaft.

On the brush end of the motor, using a small screwdriver, pry out on the brush holders. Set them aside.

Remove the two screws holding motor together. Seperate the motor front from motor rear. Withdraw the motor rotating part.

Look into the inside of the stator, inspecting for bright, shiny areas where the rotor may be dragging on the stator. If you see these, then the front bearing, in the plastic motor frount, is fried. I don't think Hoover sells this part alone. Also inspect the plastic front bearing retainer to see if there is any melting that has allowed the bearing to become off center.

In any case, if there is scrubbed out places inside the stator, then the motor requires replacement, about $70 for the motor... You might be able to find an entire new vac for less... or, like me, find one on the side of the street where someone has tossed out a unit.

You may luck out and find that the impeller unit is just filled with some trash so air cannot get to the motor for cooling... or you may have a shot motor.

Hoover F7431-900


If the screen is not dirty, and the flapper valve to the turbine inlet is open, then the problem is mostly a stuck turbine impeller. The turbine impeller on my F7431-900 has seized TWICE!! The shaft for the turbine is not made of stainless steel, therefore is subject to corrosion. If you have a handy husband or boyfriend, give it to them, because some disassembly is required to access the turbine unit. After the turbine is removed and opened up, get some P'Blaster and squirt is on the shaft. P'Blaster is a rust removing solvent and is great for freeing up rusty nuts and bolts. Allow the P'Blaster 20-30 minutes to penetrate the corroded shaft. Then, grab the impeller and wiggle it back and forth, until free rotation is achieve. The last time my brushes stopped rotating, and I disassembled the turbine, it was really siezed up. I thought I was going to need to buy a new impeller assembly. But, that P'Blaster is really great stuff for breaking up corroded parts (it's like WD-40 on steroids!). I did need to give the turbine's impeller a good twist to free it up. If you can't get the turbine impeller to rotate, then buy a new one (about $27.00). Then, you can just install it and save a bundle on labor. I think I want to become a Hoover vacuum repairman. Their business must be booming because Hoover is putting out a poorly designed turbine unit. Boo, Hiss...... shame on Hoover for selling us **** like this.

PS You can get P'Blaster at any auto store, like Pep Boys, Autozone, etc.
