There is a break in the cord where the clamp is entering the unit of our Majestic IAQS system Filterqueen Lux have tried to get into it but cant seem to get it open! Any ideas?? This unit is approximately...


undo the side clamps so that you can get to the dirt below.
Grab the handle and remove the top portion of the canister.
Take the top portion and to go the table.
Remove all the attachments (if they are even attached).
twist and remove the cap under the handle at the top.
remove the three screws under the cap at the top of the machine.
when the screws are out, pull up on the handle and the chrome top should come off from the plastic cone underneath. all of your wires and switch are under the chrome dome there.

cut your cord about 1 inch from the machine, and re-insert it into the machine making sure you do it safely. Wire connectors and NO TAPE.

Good luck.

Vorwerk VK121 vacuum cleaner - smell of burning from housing enclosing motor. How do I get into the housing to inspect the motor? After tilting the bag sideways, there are two screws holding the housing...


yes the handle is clipped in place and should come out when the button in front is pushed. Remove the screws you wrote about. After that the puzzle begins. At the bottom of the vacuum where the head is attached, remove the head by pressing the button. This same button now needs to be pressed all the way through while pulling on the top of the motor base. The outer shell will slide off while the motor stays attached to the part where the bag is attached. After this the entire motor is revealed and the brushes can easily be replaced. Hope this helps.

How to install carbon brush


You have to open the case. First remove the transparent plastic on the side then you will see screws on the bottom part of the transparent plastic. Unscrew them and from there you will open the machine. Remove the rexair cover and unscrew the screw that attaches to the 2 carbon brush. When you remove the carbon brush you will see a spring and the copper wire at the end of the brush. remove it and put the new copper wire from the new carbon brush to the contact passing thru the middle of the spring. Then screw it back tightly.

I am trying to open the outer casing of the vacuum


There is a push in type flat plastic switch trim cover over the metal housing surrounding the switch.. You must unplug the cord, gently pry around the trim cover and you will find a screw, an irregular one underneath holding the switch in place. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN when reinstalling this one or you will crack the switch.

Once removed the rear housing will come off. Then you will see several new philips round head screws holding the front housing onto the vac.With all screws removed the housing should open easily but there may be dirty film inside holding the halves together. The fan shaft will unscrew revealing the fan, a spacer behind and perhaps two different spacer washers. Install the new fan hand tight, washers and spacers in same order...
Good effort figuring this one out. Please post back with results.

Bad on/off switch hoover U6476


It's probably the power switch. My switch was dicey for a couple years, finally gave out. Easy to replace.

Remove the two screws just above the WARNING on the rear of the upper handle assembly, then slide the whole assembly to the rear of the vacuum.

Remove the dust bag cover. You will see two holes just above the upper corners of the dust bag. Remove the screws from these recessed screw holes.

Open the furniture cleaner cover and remove the cleaner attachment. Remove the single screw that was hidden behind the attachment. Then remove the attachment housing by pulling it towards the front of the vacuum.

Inside you will see the rear of the power switch. Pull off the power wires (don't worry, easy on/off male/female connectors, no soldering).

The switch is held in by tension bars at the upper and lower rear of the switch. Firmly press down on one of both of the upper/lower tension bars, and push the switch through the housing from the rear of the switch.

Replacement part number is 28161067, about $2.50. Shop will charge about $85 to repair it themselves.

My electrolux canister vacuum roller does not spin even though it has power.


When the vacuum is one and the switch for on for the carpet position. There is a small button the the floor attachment which we call the power head. It will b in the place of where the head becomes L shaped its either black or red. Push the button while the machine is on. If it does not work call ur electrolux dealer and have them pick it up. Or call me I'm a dealer and can have UPS pick it up no charge for u 1-866-966-9350.

Heats up and produces steam but the release button does not open the flow of steam.


To remedy this, I did the following:
1) Removed screws from: a) Lower area of handle (1 screw), b) Top of steamer, under round rubber flap around fill hole (2 screws), c) Front of steamer where nozzles attach (2 screws)
2) Removed back of handle, top of steamer, front of steamer where nozzles attach 
3) Once all parts are removed, you can see a brass button that is pushed by the trigger
4) Using a needle-nose pliers, grasp and rotate the button several times in both directions (you may hear it cranking against the interior spring). Do this until it turns fairly easily with the pliers.
5) Once this is done, you fill find that the brass button can be very slightly depressed with a bit of force. You may also need/want to unfold a large paper clip to push into the nozzle hole to help unsticking the brass button (not sure if that helped in my case, but it was something I tried along the way). When the brass button moves in and out (again, it won't move much), the steam release mechanism is unstuck!
6) Reassemble all parts (everything snaps back neatly into place).
This worked for my unit!
