If the motor is real loud, then it is bad and will have to be replaced. Either the fan or motor bearings have gone bad.

Take the top cover off, remove the torx screws on each side of the motor housing, remove the screw on the back holding the hose, then you just have to compare the 2 before putting on the new one. Can't tell for sure without a model number to get you a picture. What isn't on the new base, take off the old base and put it on the new one.

Move covers (forcibly !) away from the centreline of cleaner then move to rear until released. The covers are held by slide catches on inner edges.

Thank you for and excellent solution. I have several suggestions:

1) After removing the 11 screws as directed, I was unable to remove the handle. However, I was able to sneak in and remove the one screw that holds the top front thingy. I should warn you that it is easy to break the tab at the switch end of the front thingy. It was zip wired to the handle. (How do I know, I'll let you guess:-)

2) I would recommend re-soldering the wires to the new switch. They are already tinned and take up much less room than push on connectors.

3) Finally, be sure to use insulating shrink tubing. Put it on before soldering. Duh!

SOURCE: PHILIPS MOBILO PLUS (vacuum)- How to remove motor cover?

I found a solution. At least on my Mobilo HR8572. There are two tabs on the top plastic parts that hold on to the bottom plastic part. These tabs are located above the wheels, if you look closely you will see thicker grey plastic. You have to put a big screwdriver under the top plastic part and move it outward. The tabs are 6mm thick so you have to bend it out considerably. It then pops open. Works a treat and all the motor and electrical components are easily accessible using a simple star driver

How do I take about my Dyson DC11 to replace the retractable power cord assembly


While it doesn't require a collection bag, a Dyson-brand vacuum cleaner can still suffer the problems of wear and tear that are prone to any vacuum cleaner--for example, a frayed power cord. If the power cord of your Dyson vacuum cleaner has become frayed, change it immediately to avoid a dangerous electrical mishap. You will need a replacement cord from an electronics service center, along with a few common household tools. You do not need electrical skills to complete the task.
Follow this steps on how to replaced the power cord assembly:

1 Unplug the Dyson vacuum cleaner's power plug from the wall outlet. Press the button on the top front of the plastic collection cover. Lift the cover off the front of the vacuum cleaner and place it aside.

  • 2 Trace the power cord to where it enters the back bottom of the vacuum cleaner. Remove the screws from the panel surrounding the power cord with a Phillips screwdriver. Remove the panel. Aim the beam of a flashlight inside the compartment so that you can see where the wires at the end of the power cord wrap around two screws on the motor assembly. Loosen these screws with a Phillips jeweler's screwdriver.

  • 3 Pull the power cord out of the compartment and dispose of it properly. Strip a 1/2 inch of insulation from the ends of the two wires of the replacement power cord. Run the wires into the compartment along the path of the original power cord--pushing the wires into the grooves inside the compartment.

  • 4 Tie a knot on the cord on the inside of the compartment to prevent the cord from being pulled out.

  • 5 Wrap the exposed end of each wire of the power cord around the loosened screws. Tighten the screws. Replace the panel and reattach the screws. Stand the vacuum cleaner right side up. Place the bottom of the plastic collection cover into the bottom front slot on the vacuum cleaner. Push the cover back on the front of the vacuum cleaner.

    On a Hoover Steamvac: How do I remove the clear plastic cover? I want to clean the vacuum intake.


    3 screws to remove. Remove 2 from the bottom at the front that hold the clear plastic cover on. The other larger one is at the top by the tank. The cover comes completely off. Another way to clean that area is with pipe cleaners, coat hanger or an old thin plastic ruler with a notch cut out to grab the dirt.

    I want to release flex from sebo x4 vacuum cleaner to cut back...


    On the underside of the handle, there's a small screw close to where the metal and plastic parts join. Undo this screw. This will allow you to pull the plastic part out of the metal part - not very far, but just far enough so that you can separate the plastic part into two halves lengthways. That gives you access to the switch, and you should find the rewiring job and reassembly straight forward from there on.
    I hope this helps. If you need more, just post a reply and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. I do value feedback, so please remember to rate this answer.

    Where can you purchase a belt for the dc07?and how do you change the belt on it?


    Belts can be bought from eBay, vaccum cleaner shops and Dyson direct.
    Please note that DC07s have two belts - one connects the output of the motor to the clutch, the other connects the clutch to the brush bar.
    Unfortuenately the belt that connects the motor output to the clutch is hidden under a plastic cover, so you cant see if it is okay or not without some dismantling. This cover is not easy to remove and requires a Torx driver to under the securing screws.
    If, after removing the cover, the other belt is okay, then you have a faulty clutch. New clutches are available on eBay reasonably cheaply, but again good tools and DIY skills are required.
    Have a look at www.dysonmedic.com which has some excellent info on dismantling and repairing your machine, but unless you have access to such tools, and feel confident to tackle it, it's probably time to call Dyson or a Vacuum repairer.

    How do I remove and replace the on-off switch on hoover upright self propelled vac.


    Greetings,

    This is a relatively easy fix for you. What I've done for you is take pictures of this repair on your type of vacuum to make it as easy as possible. I will explain step by step what you need to do in order to fix the switch on your Hoover.

    What you'll need to do this repair:
    - Phillips head screwdriver
    - Needle Nose Plyers
    - Hoover Windtunnel Switch

    Step 1. Turn the vacuum cleaner2_bing.gif so that the back is facing you. Remove the two screws at the top of the vacuum that are holding the handle on the machine. Please see the picture below of the two highlighted screws that need to be removed;


    bbf0111.jpg
    Step 2. After these two screws have been removed, simply slide the handle backwards, and remove it completely from the vacuum and set it aside. You now can see the on/off switch, but you can't easily change it from here, you'll need to complete several other steps before you may remove the switch. Here's what the vacuum should look like after removing the handle:



    721c0e8.jpg
    Step 3. After removing the handle from the vacuum, turn the machine around so the front of it is facing you. Open the bag housing and set the bag door aside. Also remove any attachments that are on-board in the tool storage bin, this model has a hand-held turbo brush stored here. After removing both of these parts, you'll need to unscrew 3 screws that holds the tool caddy onto the vacuum cleaner. I have circled the area where these 3 screws are located:


    071e740.jpg
    Step 4. After removing these three screws, pull the tool caddy off of the vacuum by pulling straight forward by using the tool caddy lid. You'll now have access to both the front and the back sides of the switch. Use your needle nose plyers to remove the two wires that are attached to the switch. Be careful when pulling these wires off because if you pull too hard, then it will break the switch terminal off inside of the wire. Most models have the wire that has a plastic covering over the end of it on the top, and the metal terminal is connected on the bottom. The two lead wires that need to be removed are highlighted:




    d5638fa.jpg
    Step 5. After the wires have been removed from the switch, turn the vacuum back around so that the back of the machine is facing you. Simply use your flat head screwdriver to pry the switch off. You may push on the front side of the switch where the wires connect to it in order to give a space so that you can get a screw driver behind it. Here's how it should look:


    a01a9ad.jpg
    Step 6. Once the old switch has been removed, simply push the new switch into the open hole. Important: Make sure that the Off setting of the switch is at the bottom, and the part of the switch that says on is on the top, otherwise the switch will be reversed. Re-attach the wires to the switch, with the wire that has the plastic covering on top, and the metal wire terminal on the bottom. The only tricky part of reassembling is when you put the handle assembly back on the vacuum. As you can see, there is a metal cable below the switch. This metal cable controls the self-propelled mechanism. If you look at the handle assembly, you'll see where the self propelled cable sits inside. The easiest way to line these up is to pull the cable up to the top, and then line up the rod inside of the handle that the cable goes in, and slide the handle back on the vacuum.

    I hope that this was helpful in fixing your Hoover Windtunnel switch. If you found this helpful, please be sure to rate the repair as helpful by clicking the Thumbs Up Icon in the top right hand corner of the repair. If you have any questions, or need some help on this repair, please just use the Clarification Request option here on Fixya, and I'll be happy to help you further.


    Thanks so much,

    Chris J.

    How to remove an old Rainbow E Series Cooling Filter


    The motor filter is under the top cover.
    Caution: Be sure your vacuum is unplugged from the electrical outlet before proceeding! There are 2 screws on each side of the top cover of the Rainbow ‘E’ series vacuum cleaners located behind the decals. To get to the screws; use a non-scratching tool such as a plastic putty knife and pry out a corner of the plastic window, carefully pull out the plastic window and decal and remove the 2 screws. Repeat this process for both windows and then just lift up the top cover to expose the inside.

    Panasonic Vacuum MC-E450UK


    Panasonic MC-E 450UK upright vacuum cleaner.
    Just had this problem myself...........easy to get at it when you know how.
    Panasonic UK wouldn't help me so I spent some time working it out..........here it is.
    Remove the hose from its mounting storage at the rear (called hose clip) where the main body of the vacuum cleaner meets the base of the handle assembly. Remove the screw at the rear of the handle assembly which is behind where the hose 'was' situated and is located inside the deep recess.
    Using the soft part of your clenched hand as a hammer, knock the base of the handle assembly at the front and it will slide backwards off the main body of the vacuum cleaner. Don't be scared, give it a thump and keep moving it backwards with a few more knocks.
    Next remove the two screws at the front which hold the mains cable and on/off switch cover in place.
    Finally looking from the rear once more, lift the plastic 'lug' at the top of the cover and which is part of the cover. This will now allow you to release the cover and pull it forward.
    There you go! Told you it was easy!
    Watch out for the funny little spring at the front behind the cover in the tiny plastic tube where it connects to the small rubber tubing as it could possibly try to escape.
    You now have complete access in order to cut the intermittent part of the cable out and remove it from the 'choc' block.
    Happy fixing!!
    Jack.
