There is an area on the back of the tank where you will see lines, put your thumb there and pull the top half of the tank towards yourself. That should open the machine so you can replace your after filter.

I need to find out how to open the cover to change the motor filter on my Electrolux Epic Series 6500 sr canister vacuum.

There is not a replaceable motor filter inside the body of the vacuum. There is an exhaust filter under the cover on top which can be removed by pushing a little tab at the rear of the cover.

Ultraactive vaccum filter keeps popping off

There are two possible causes for this issue. The most likely is that your exhaust filter is blocked and so the air literally cant get out. You need to replace the exhaust Hepa Filter every six months anyway so get a new one and see if that fixes the problem. If it still is popping off after this it means the tiny lugs on the filter cover are damaged so you will need to get a new one of those.

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.

Electrolux #1521 Canister Vacuum won't stay closed

hi from uk your problem with the canister cover/door coming off whilst vaccing ? you have renewed bag ? ok but there is a filter/gauze also inside the canister where bag is fitted if you check inside you should see the filter at opposite end from where bag is secured it is usually fitted behind a slotted pull out plastic gate ? this filter/gauze is to allow air out of canister when vaccing and the filter traps any dust that may accumulate inside the canister case so the dust does not get blown out to atmosphere/rooms SO if this filter is clogged it will not allow vacced air to escape out of canister so result is build up of pressure within cylinder and eventually cover flips open ! so for now you can remove filter/gauze and wash then dry refit this will allow air to escape from canister but still retain dust particles from escaping as it is designed for however may i suggest you replace filter when convenient ? all above is on assuming that the latch on cover is working ok and not now damaged ? hope this helps best wishes

Electrolux canister vaccum 2100

The filter for your Electrolux 2100 is located on the rear top of the machine. It is covered by a plastic grill. You simply place your finger in the rear of the plastic grill, push the tab in slightly and lift the grill up to expose the filter. The filter is approximately 4" by 6". It is NOT washable. Most Vac Shops sell replacement filters in addition to them being available at the local Electrolux distributor.

How do we open this vacuum?

Some of these, the strip on each side, in the middle, slide off, then the 2 halfs will separate. They only slide in one direction and some are hard to get off.
