Question about Vacuums
It would certainly help if you said which model it was.
I can only give generic help now, and do the best I can for you.
Most plastic products rely heavily on moulded catches that click into grooves upon assembly. The screws are fewer in number, and tend to be centred in the assembly, or spaced at intervals around the periphery. This is the "belt & braces" method which works quite well.
With the screws out, press around the seam line to see if it will pop open at one of the clips, then chase the gap around to all of the clips. You may have to insert a spacer as you go so they don't snap shut again.
There may be hidden fasteners under labels, star lock springs, or solvent welding to make more money for the manufacturer who insists you buy a new unit instead, but with a little care, and seeing which parts are not moving - and finding out why, then you should do it.
Worse case scenario, you crack the casing and have to glue it, saving the expense of a new motor. - Usually worth it.
If this helps you, Please rate as Fixya!.. Much apreciated thanks.
