Question about Electrolux Vacuums
After you remove the screws, just tap the casing -gently- with a hammer or similar object in order to loosen it. Then you will be able to separate it.
Just a comment: Vacuum cleaners have 'brushed' motors, and if there is a burning smell coming from the motor it usually means trouble that you may not be able to repair.
Likely one of the rotor coils or windings is shorted out.
