The power head of my 1165581590C Kenmore Power mate Whispertone 12 amp vacuum won't open. It is an older model and it desparately needs a clean!

I am not 100% sure of the model number but most of their powerheads come apart quite easily if you know how. There is a light lens cover on the top of your powerhead. On each side of this cover there is a little clip that holds it in place. You can usually see that spot by simply taking your thumb and pushing the light cover to one side or the other. Place a small flat head screwdriver in that slot and gently pry upward.

Once that cover is off, you will see two screws. Remove those two screws. Now simply grab each side of the cover towards the bottom and back of the nozzle and pull out. This should release it from the base. It will lift from forward from back to front..

Reassembly is pretty easy. Just reverse the instructions.

Let me know if this helps.

I need to change the power cord on my electrolux 2100. how do i open the body to get to it?

Due to problems getting it back together, I don't recommend taking it apart. Dismantling and reassembly the cord winder assembly is also complicated and most people have problems doing so correctly. I strongly suggest taking it to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store and spending the money to have an experienced tech do the job. However, if you do decide to try this yourself, there are instructions on the second site below. The first site is for locating the nearest Aerus Electrolux store.

Now that I just fixed my Lux Legacy canister vacuum, I need help on my other Electrolux Regency Series upright! The vacuum works fine but the rotating brush does not work and the brush motor does not turn...

There are a couple rectangular holes on the bottom of the power nozzle, beside the wheels. These have tabs in them that need released with a standard screwdriver.
rogerpotts_10.jpg Once they release, turn the vacuum over and lift cover of power nozzle at the back. This pulls the front of the cover out of the lip on the "bumper".
Once this is done, you'll need to unscrew the screw at each end of the brush. Lift the brush out and thoroughly clean it, including the ends.
Check the wiring to make sure they're connected to the terminals of the motor. Also, check the belt for wear and tear. These belts can last for five years or more, but if it looks bad a good time to replace it is while you have the power head apart.
When reassembling the vacuum, ensure the belt is fitted properly around the motor shaft and brush.
Insert the front of the cover first, ensuring the edge fits neatly beneath the lip on the bumper all the way around. It takes a little manipulating to press the back into place. Make sure both tabs click into the locked position. Turn the vacuum over and reinstall screws. Try to rotate brush by hand a few times.
At this point, plug the vacuum in and turn it on. If the power head doesn't run, press the reset button. If the power head motor still doesn't run, it could be due to loose or disconnected wires that lead to the reset switch, a bad reset switch, or even a bad motor. The vacuum needs to be taken to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store for further diagnosis and repair.

I have a DC25 that will not pick anything up. It seems to be throwing everything back out somewhere. It only powers on when its not in the upright position. There is also a strange noise when it's turned...

The discharge is just the brush kicking whatever you try to vacuum to the rear of the vacuum. Without suction, that's the results. If there are no clogs throughout the hose, including the piece that's in the power nozzle, then the fan assembly is probably shot. The noise, probably a rattling noise could be pieces of the fan that have broken off.
The fan assembly should be able to be replaced, but unless you know what you're doing, take it to an authorized shop. It's possible that the motor and fan assembly are one piece, so both would need replacing.

Can't find the belt # for an electrolux genesis upright, serial number u 75344 p

The best place to get a genuine belt is the local Aerus Electrolux store. They're the only place to get a genuine belt without going on line. Most of their uprights use the same belt, so the store should have it on hand. I do highly recommend allowing their technician to make the switch as the power nozzle can be a bit tricky taking apart and reassembling.
To find the store nearest you, follow the instructions on the following site.

The water will not spray out. we've check all the troubleshooting suggestions , still won't spray

This seams to be a common issue with Bissell cleaners. Personally I think it's great but I love taking things apart. So I'll be more then happy to explain how to completely dismantle your cleaner......or I can just tell you where to look for the problem with the sprayer.......

From your frown I take it you don't have the "I don't care if it's not broke I want to take it apart anyway gene".

Ok the sprayer repair it is...
The two most common causes of the lack of spray are a worn, stretched or broken belt or a clogged heater unit. Along with those there are a couple miscellaneous items you can check also.

Since the belt is easier start there. Remember that most Pro Heats have two belt. A cogged belt which turns the brushes and a flat belt for the pump. Since I'm not sure exactly which model you have this description may not be a perfect match. The belts are located on the operators left. Turn the machine over and you’ll see a red retainer with 2 screws. Remove the retainer to gain access to the pump and belts. While you’re there check the red pump pulley, it’s where the two belts are. If that pulley is broken or loose you’ll have to replace the whole pump, the pulley is not available separate.

Before you check the heater be sure to check the spray nozzles at the front most Pro Heats have one on each side and they are attached with small hose clips. Just pop them off and make sure they are clear of any clogs.

After the nozzles and again this will depend on your Pro Heat model. Make sure that the nozzle on the bottom of the reservoir is working properly. Just pushing it open from the underside will verify it's not plugged.
If the belt, pulley and nozzles are all ok then......are you sure you don't want to tear it apart?......A relaxing weekend at home with carpet shampooer parts strewn everywhere? fine but don't say I didn't offer.

At the very least you will need to remove the screws from the back of the handle to gain access to the heater core. Please be careful as they can retain heat a long time. Remove the tubing from the heater and also the heater cover. You’ll probably see sediment inside. Clean out any sediment you see and use a paper clip on the nipple connectors where the clear plastic tubing was attached to ensure they are not clogged. After reassembly, running some white vinegar through your machine may help to clean out any sediment left behind.

If you have reached this point you could have a bad pump. In which case you can buy a replacement pump for around $20,00.

If this is the case please respond back to me with your exact model # and I can get you to a web site for a replacement and possibly even diagrams.

I hope something here helps.
