I strongly suggest not opening it. Although it is simple to open if one knows how, there can be difficulties getting it put back together correctly. And generally problems are due to things other then wiring connections.
However, to open, open bag door and remove bag. Place machine on one side with the door open. Insert flat head of a screwdrive into the space at back end of the rubber strip on side of machine. Using a hammer, gently hit the screwdriver shaft until strip slides forward about 4-6". Grab front end of strip and pull forward. Repeat with other side. Place vacuum on it's top, grasp bottom half of case, and lift. With some manipulation it should come off fairly easily.
Reassembling is a bit more difficult.
Be aware that shops will usually charge more to reassemble a vacuum if they didn't take it apart or repair it.
