Overtime the dirt canister can get somewhat stuck. Once you unclip it, you will need to apply some force and pull down. The dirt canister should release.

I think it's the on/off switch since it doesn't feel right. But I would like to diagnose it before I bring it in for repairs. Can I replace a control switch myself? I can take apart anything!


It sounds like the Rocker Assembly has cracked inside your switch. When they break it's usually in the "Off" position.

So this is how you take it apart:

Remove Hose
Remove Bag

Now stand the vacuum up and peel back the bumper guards on the left and right side of the vacuum. Peel them back roughly 6 inches and pull straight up on the bumpers. This should release the side of the machine.

When doing the other side be careful in doing so because once you release that last bumper, your vacuum will be ready to disassemble.

When you remove the bumpers place your vacuum wheels up. Pull the cord out roughly 3 ft, just for slack. Now you should be able to release the bottom of your vacuum.

When you lift off the bottom of your vacuum (wheel side) the front cover and the bag compartment will come with it. Just be careful. There will be about 4 wires. Just unclip the wires from the bag compartment. That way you can place the front of the vacuum at the back of the machine to give you more room to work with.

When removing the bag compartment, there will be a clear hose that plugs into the lower corner of the compartment. That will just slide off, but be sure when you reassemble that you connect that clear hose back on your vacuum will show a full bag indicator.

Now once you have the front cover and bag compartment out you should see the underside of your switch. There will be 2 to 4 screws. Remove them and the cover will release your switch from the underside.

When your switch comes out you will have to push the retaining clip on the top of the switch to remove the cover. Once you do that you will see 2 slider switches with a broken rocker in between them. There will be a small spring attached to this rocker so pay attention on how it goes back on the rocker.

Go to your local Aerus Electrolux with your rocker and tell them you want a replacement rocker. It should be under $10.00 and once you do that, just reverse these steps.

Good Luck!

I want to open the cannister to work on the cord rewinder but I don't want to force it and I am unable to locate/see how the back latches work.


This should really be done by an authorized Aerus Electrolux servich technician. I've seen quite a few dismantled machines come into the shop because the owner couldn't figure out how to put it back together properly. And the cordwinder can be even more difficult. The service techs really don't like to put together a dismantled machine.
There are no back latches.

However, to open the canister:
You will need a flathead screwdrive and a hammer.
1. Remove bag
2. Lay on one side, with bag door open all the way
3. Push tip of screwdriver in the back of side rubber strip.
4. Use hammer to hit screwdrive toward front of vacuum.
5. When strip is 5-6 inches out, grasp with fingers and and slide gently out the front of vacuum.
6. Repeat for other side.
7. Lay machine on it's top and lift bottom half of canister off top half.
8. You now have access to cordwinder. I suggest you take notes as you go so you remember where everything goes.

Putting it back together isn't this easy.

Where is the filter


Dyson put filters in three locations. 1) Remove the canister, there should be a release clip in the front above the handle, this allows the top to tip backwards. 2) On the left side, at the main unit is a round cover with thumb release, this pulls straight out. These are cleanable filters, RINSE ONLY no soap!!
3) Under the canister is a filter, the cover has 3 clips which need to be pried gently to open the cover. This is a hepa filter and cannot be cleaned, it must be replaced.

How to use the after filters for the electrolux canister vacuum


At the back of the vac on top you will have a removable grille. Release the thumb tab to lift the grill.Older models had this tab at the back of the grille. The filters will sit underneath. They should clip into the round exhaust opening. Then replace the grille. Change filters every 6 bags. More often if you have pets or allergies.

Changin the dust bag how do you do it?


1. open the bag compartment by lifting the black catch near the handle. 2. grip the grey plastic fitting on the bag, using the little handles on each side, and slide it out of the black holder. As you do this, part of the grey fitting remains caught in the black holder, and this causes the bag closure to cover the hole. When the cover is fully in place, if the grey bit doesn't release itself, you can help by slightly lifting the black tab where it's trapped. 3. slide the new bag in where the old one came out, and close the lid. 4. job done!

How do I open my Kenmore Whispertone 12.0 to get to the cord reel


The motor / cord compartment cover must be removed to access the cord reel. There are four screws that hold the cover to the chassis. Two of the screws are found under the cord-retractor-foot-pedal on the top back of the canister. To access these screws the pedal must be removed. To do this, press the pedal down and look (from the top) for the four plastic clips that attach/hold the pedal hinges to the cover. There are two at the end corners and two in the middle. Using a long, thin flat-head screw driver (or similar instrument) press each clip to unhook/popout the hinges. Note: the foot pedal spring will also come out when the pedal is removed.

The other two screws are found under the curved hinges of the vaccum bag compartment cover. To access these, lift the cover as if accessing the vacuum bag. Keep pulling the cover back until the hinges release from the motor cover. Don't worry, it is disigned to do this and will not break but it may require a little force. A long phillip-head screw driver will be needed to access and remove each screw. Good luck. - Gary

I can not find how to get the canister apart to empty the dirt.


From the bottom of your machine going upwards past the handle that is on the canister portion of this vacuum, you will see that the top of that canister had a depression where you should be able to put your fingers in, and gently pull that lid back, opening the vacuum bag compartment. According to the manual, simply pull that back, exposing the bag. To remove the bag, pull the cardboard plate on the top of the bag, out towards the no open face. Throw away your old bag, and take your new bag, fold down the paper sides of the bag, then slide the new bag into the track completely. Close your lid, and you are done.
While you have this compartment open, it's a good idea to check your filter that sits below the paper bag.

Part numbers
Paper Bag: SC-P11
Filter: SC-F2

I hope this helps you.

How do i get access to replace the belt?


If it is the one in the picture above, then from underneath there are 2 screws to remove, then on the back there is 2 catchs, and on each side a catch, pry up slightly to release them and the top will come off. There may be a cover over the brushroll, there is a catch on each side to release and it will come off.

The cover over the light, push in on the sides to release the tabs, then remove 2 screws. Using a screw driver, put it in the slot, one on each side, from the bottom, pry up to release the tabs, cover will come off and you can get to the belt and brush roll.
