You need to unscrew the screw at the back / base of the handle. The whole handle section will need to be slid backwards. Best way is to unscrew the screw on the rear approx 5 turns and then bump the end of the screwdriver. A few more turns then bump the end of the screwdriver again. The whole handle will eventually slide backwards and fall off. Then unscrew the two screws at the front (near switch) and the front switch cover plate will lift up (hinging at the top). This reveals the incoming wires etc.

to get the handle off unscrew the long screw at the back of the handle then the handle slides back, to reveal the switch an input flex unscrew the 2 screw inside the bag cover then the swich cover should easily unclip. hope this helps

Snap together with lugs a thin blade and gentle prising. The Elctrolux Website should have a diagram available for this.

How do i remove screws from a hoover windtunnel upright cannister vacuum that have no head on them?

I'm going to assume that by this you mean the heads have been stripped or damaged so that a screwdriver does not stay in the screw. In this case you can often lay a rubber band across the head and put the screwdriver in on top of it. This will often give you enough grip to turn the screw.

I have a Electrolux velocity hoover one side of the hoover brushes is stuck not the side with the belt how do I fix it thanks

Are you talking about the brushroll? If one side of it wont turn then most likely the beating is fouled and it needs to be replaced.

Hoover HWD-20 how do I open/access the switch and motor section?

I\'ve discovered how to get the cover open.

There are four grey inserts on the top of the machine that are used to store the power cable. If you pull these up and out

(takes a bit of force) they reveal four small star screws that are somewhat difficult to access. They can be undone with a

small long handled hex nut though.

Once the screws are undone, lift the cover carefully because the switch is connected to the top. Carefully put your hand inside

the machine, having made sure the device is disconnected, and push the switch through and out the top. Then write down how the

wires are connected, red and blue on the "O" side and for the two black connectors first make a small notch with any device or

wrap some coloured tape around it etc so that you know which is which (Though technically it shouldn\'t matter). The crimp curl

overs point away from each other. Pull the crimp ends off.

There are then three slightly larger star screws to remove. You\'ve now access to the devices internals.

Do in reverse to re-assemble.

There isn\'t actually much one can do once inside the device, it\'s suprisingly well made with very little dust penetration even

after a lot of abuse. Other than the difficult to get to screws I\'m impressed with Hoover.

Cable does not wind in. Hoover Helios 2000. Found the 4 font fixing screws - there must be more at the back. How do you get at them?

The flex is fitted to a spring loaded cord reel.
in side the Telios, chances are the reel is faulty and too expensive to change, either get use to it or buy a new one. sorry

Auto rewind for the electrolux oxygen 3 ultra

If this isnt working correctly, take it back. It wont get better

Cord is stuck out full length

Not sure if you're posing about the Hoover since you're in the Hoover S1361 forum, or the electrolux.

I had similar frustrating problems with my hoover and made a blog post on how to take it apart and fix it here.

Hoover s3639 vacuum...cord does not rewind

I had the same problem with my Hoover s3639. The cord rewinder started squeaking, and retracted less and less of the cord each time, until it finally stopped retracting the cord at all. Here is what I did. I hope it will work for you as well. Open the covered tool storage and remove the tools. You should see three screws. Unscrew the screws. Remove the cover. You should see the motor for the vacuum and the cord rewinder. Between the vacuum motor and the white wheel where the cord is, you should see two brass wheels that turn into each other in order to operate the cord rewinder. Spray a small amount WD-40 between the two brass wheels. This should solve your problem.

F7452900 the brushes won't rotate during floor cleaning

Solution for Hoover SteamVac (F7452-900) brushes not spinning
Uses the turbine model and same solution would be similar. Root cause is simply the main gear attached to turbine becomes stuck. This problem should not happen as often as I see other people also having this problem. Must be a poor design on Hoover’s part. It takes about 30 minutes and a Phillips screw driver and wrench. Pretty easy, just have to remember what screws went where.
Remove brushes, and front suction cover
On the bottom of the machine:
Remove the 4 screws behind brushes which attach the top faceplate
Remove the 2 screws from base in the sunken holes
Remove the two long silver screws from base which connect all the way to turbine assembly
Stand machine upright
Remove the floor select switch handle
Remove 1 screw near the center beside the intake hole
Remove the 2 screws over the rear wheels
Remove faceplate cover, the front will need to be gently pried over the clear plastic part, be careful about the upright disengaging lever under faceplate, move it under the metal wire
Remove the 2 screws in the front of the turbine assembly
Remove the 2 hoses on either side
Disengage the bar on the floor selector switch
Pull out the turbine assembly
Remove the 4 screws and 3 clips to separate the assembly
Remove the filter (which is most likely clean since, cleaning this is the manufactures only solution)
Remove the large white gear and with a wrench remove ball bearing
Remove other large white gear
Note that the metal gear attached to turbine will not move (this was my problem), with a wrench gently grab metal gear and twist free. Spin turbine to make sure it moves freely.
Put everything back together again and you should be good to go.
