Remove hoover vacuum fan


I don't know what model you have but on most vacuums you need to remove the nozzle housing from the vacuum, remove the cover over the motor to gain access to the motor. Remove any screws holding the motor in. Remove the motor and take the screws out to allow access to the fan. Remove the fan, replace and put back together exactly as it was before.

Accessing the motor on a riccar radiance


On a Radiance you will need to remove the screws going through the bottom of the vacuum nozzle housing which hold the cover on. Remove the cover and remove the screws holding the cover that goes from the brush roll to the lower motor. When you remove this cover tpyou will be able to see into the fan of the lower direct air motor to remove the obstruction. If it is in too far. You may have to pull the motorand open up the fan. This is not a hard thing to do but. If you have never done it, it can be a confusing job that may be best left to your Riccar dealer.

New bag indicator will not reset causing bare floor mode not to work at all and mode 2 not to vacuum dirt properly


Your top motor (suction motor) isn't running. Your vacuum has two motors in it. The top motor is the suction motor that runs on the first switch position and the bottom motor (brush motor) turns on with the second possition.
It could be the switch.If it isn't the switch, the only other thing it could be is the motor itself.
To check the switch, unplug the vacuum and then take the three screws out of the back of the handle. If you are comfortable with electricity, jump the black wire and the blue wire togeather and plug the vacuum into a electrical outlet. If the motor dosen't run, the problem is with the motor. If the motor runs, the switch is bad and needs to be replaced. You can get one at most any vacuum shop.
The motor could be bad or the carbon brushes can be stuck with dust. This is more involved and I recomend taking the vacuum to a vac shop that works on the "old" Electrolux vacuums. The new name for the "old" Electrolux is now Aerus Lux but you would probably get it repaired less expensively at another vacuum shop.
If you want to go into the motor housing you'll have to take the big screw out of the back of the handle and pull up on the handle to remove it. Next, remove the four screws holding the top half (motor housing) of the vacuum. Two screws on the back and two screws to the front inside of the bag housing. You'll need a long #2 phillips screw driver. Then pull up on the bag housing with a side to side motion.
With the housing removed, you will see the motor and can lift it out.
Check for any bad winding. You can smell them to check if you can't tell by looking at them. If they are burned, you will need to replace the motor.
To check the brushes, you will need a 5/16th" socket to remove the two bolts on the top of the motor and lift the top bracket with the carbon brushes off and see if the brushes move freely. If not moving or not long enough to touch the top part of the motor with the copper bars (the comutator) it would be best to replace the motor.
To reassemble the vac just reverse.
This is a long and difficult prosedure and I reccomend that you take the vacuum to a repair shop that works on the Electrolux.

Electrolux Vacuum Cleaner Epic series 3500SR: The motor runs but not at full power and then quits then will start again.


Check the piece of flex hose between the vacuum body and the power nozzle. This will sometimes get a blockage in it, causing varying motor speeds.
You can remove the tube by grasping it firmly and pulling from the power nozzle. Then twist clockwise to remove it from the vacuum body. Clear blockage with a wooden spoon handle or similar blunt object. Insert tube into body and twist counter-clockwise until tight. Insert other end into power nozzle about an inch, or until it stops.

Another thing to check is the foam filter at the bottom of the bag well. Remove and replace if necessary. If a new one is unavailable, the vacuum can be used until you get a new one. Or rinse the old one out and allow to thorougly air dry before using. Also check the screen covering the motor intake and clean if needed.

Also, if your machine is fitted with a afterfilter on the lower side of the tank, this may need to be removed if dirty.

I have a clog in the vacuum line that comes out of the face that runs to the vacuum tube to the bag


To check for blockage in the fan housing, remove the bag assembly. Grip the lower bag housing and turn it counterclockwise for removal. If it has not been removed regularly to clean out debris, it may be hard to remove. Insert a screwdriver between the housing and the motor for leverage. For easier installation, wet the seal on the motor outlet before re-installing the bag assembly. Remember that the motor will not run unless the bag housing is fully attached.

My on vacume it on juice on carpet and now it is not turning on


Remove the bottom plate under the vacuum and check the brush assembly for being stuck. Remove the belt from the motor and try to start the machine--does the motor spin and have vacuum? This machine is not a wet-pickup type vacuum. If the motor now runs, remove the brush assembly and remove the end bearings. Clean the brush in hot water and dry off. Clean the outer bearing interiors with a Q tip swab wet with hot water, then another to dry them out. Use a third to apply a small amount of light machine oil (3in1, or sewing machine oil) to the brush ends and the bearing interiors. Reinstall the belt and turn the machine on--hopefully, this will get it working again. Good luck!

When I turn the vacuum on it sounds really loud, louder than usual, and after a few minutes it smells like burning rubber around the canister. The vacuum is still sucking.


The armature is probably missing a plate and the motor is about ready to burn up, but check the filter and screen on the bottom of the motor first. The screen can be checked by removing the filter and looking up at the motor from below. Clean if necessary by removing the motor. Unplug the unit first. If the motor sounds rough and smells like something electrical burning. It's going to need to be replaced. Check your model # and order a replacement. Pretty easy to install if you get the right motor. Get the foam gasket for under the motor if your replacing a three stage motor.

Rainbow stops shortly after starting to vacuum


There is a thermal fuse on the motor field that sometimes fails. Sometimes the fuse does what it is supposed to do - prevents motor from overheating.
Causes:
a) Improperly worn motor brushes
b) bad motor bearings (that usually leads to uneven motor brush wear)
c) very dirty cooling air filter

To access filter and the motor - use small flat screwdriver to remove clear side panels. You will see 4 or 6 Phillips screws. Remove screws - cap will come off.

Good Luck,
Rocky
