Fix of the Week: How to Change and Electrolux Control Valve

by Mark 28. August 2014 08:31

First, open the canister.  Visit our blog to learn How to Open an Electrolux Plastic Canister.

Order a new Electrolux Control Valve




Once the Electrolux vacuum rails are off, remove the back cover.




Turn the vacuum upside down so the wheels point towards the ceiling; remove the bottom cover.



Locate one of the three tubes that connect to the control valve.



Disconnect this tube from the control valve by pulling.



Keep track of this tube as it reattaches to the new valve.



Remove the bag chamber to reveal the control valve.



Remove the control valve from the housing.



We recommend using a pair or pliers to pry the tubes off of the old control valve to avoid damage.
Be sure to note where each tube went on the control valve.  If you cross the tubes, you reverse the airflow of the control valve and the vacuum will tell you the bag is full and/or there is an issue.



Keep track of the two tubes you just removed. Its best to remove one tube at a time and then connect it to the new control valve.



Note where the slot is on the control valve housing.



Note where the peg is on the new control valve.



Align the peg on the control valve with the slot in the housing and attach the new valve.  A loud click occurs when it seats properly.



Reattach the tubes and assemble the vacuum back together.

Fix of the Week: How to Change an Electrolux Plastic Canister Cordwinder

by Mark 21. August 2014 08:44

Start by assembling the vacuum, the new cordwinder, a putty knife, and a rubber hammer or mallet.



First, open the bag door of the vacuum.



Turn the vacuum on its side and locate the rubber coated bumpers.  Place the putty knife between the bumper and the hard plastic of the canister.



Next, tap the butt end of the putty knife with your mallet to move the bumper down the rail.



Once you have both bumpers off, remove the back cover and you can now open the canister in a clam shell fashion.



Turn the vacuum upside down for easy access.



Locate the old cordwinder at the back of the canister vacuum.



Take note of the contacts.  Here is a shot of the first contact.



This is the second.



Remove the cordwinder from the old contacts; view below for visual demonstration.



Remove the old cordwinder and be sure to guide the plug through the opening.



Once the old cordwinder is out of the plastic canister vacuum, insert the new Electrolux cordwinder in its place and reconnect the contacts.  Put the top and bottom halves of the canister back together.  Replace the back cover.  Guide the bumpers along the rails.  Once finished, plug the new cord into an outlet and watch as the vacuum springs to life again.
