    • We will remove the wand, detach the body from the base.

    • Clean things up or wipe it down, or go outside and do this because you'll be dealing with fine dust.

    • For the teardown, we'll need the Torx T10 and T20. There are TWO screws at the bottom of vacuum cleaner that need a very long and thin reach. Somehow you will need something that can let you reach in. In the image with the screws, I used an extender that you can see is raised above and to the right. (The screwdriver handle was too thick.)

    • If you have a soldering iron, ready the soldering iron (no need to heat it up yet at this stage).

    • The image of the spring-loaded plastic thing is what we'll be modifying.

    • After detaching the dustbin. Keep track of the screws you remove by yourself because I couldn't figure out where to put ~4 when I put this all back together.

    • Screws marked with red were particularly difficult for my screw kit to reach.

    • This is the panel that covers the small plastic item and the lift-away arm. Arm marked with red. Picture doesn't show every screw.

    • After opening the panel, be CAREFUL about removing the spring loaded plastic thing. 'cause it will jump and maybe get lost.

    • This is the complicated part. Let me explain why this modification was made: I couldn't figure out how to open the thing all the way up to the buttons. I could feel that most of the friction happened up by the lift-away button and NOT here with this thing.

    • However, this white plastic thing can also push the lift-away's actuation arm if you push hard enough from inside the tube. So I decided to just modify this plastic thing. Try this: Put this thing and the spring back in there (don't put the cover back on) and press on the bump from inside the vaccum cleaner's dirty tube.

    • You can see that it CAN push the actuation arm. (Don't let it bounce out when you push on it) I'm hoping that by making it so that this thingy can push against the actuation arm even harder, it will dislodge the actuation arm next time it gets stuck.

    • Anything can get this done. I chose to use a hot object. If you can find something else to get the job done, that works too.

    • The red arrow points to an area which gets bumped against a solid object and PREVENTS this thing from hitting the actuation arm. I decided to burn it down with a soldering iron. You can find any other hot substitues. A hot spoon? Hot knife? Open flame?

    • IF YOU CHOOSE TO MELT IT DOWN WITH A SOLDER LIKE I DID, do this under the kitchen fan. YOU WILL BE INHALING PLASTIC VAPOR IF YOU DO NOT. OR do this outside with wind.

    • You can also use a knife or scissors or nail file but this is truly clumsy. Or whatever other ideas you have.

    • For whatever retarded reason, Ifixit doesn't let me use one image twice. But in short, this time look at the left lip/edge, indicated with a blue arrow. You see it's a bit bumpy.

    • I tried to add another 0.5mm of distance on the lip so it could push against the arm if it is depressed from the direction of the green arrow.

    • You do not need a solder.. if you can find a different way to make the left side a bit more raised then go ahead! Even stacking tape on the lip could work. It just might fall off after a while?

    • But if you use a solder, or heated metal object, again, be careful and do it outside or under the kitchen fan.

    • I did this by sort of brushing the plastic to the right, like repeated brushstrokes. Normally this wall that the blue arrow points at is FLAT/90 degrees sharp and not jagged!

    • The leidenfrost effect saved me from a burn when I accidentally grabbed the searing hot solder. So I guess you can keep your hands slightly wet when handling superhot objects. (The water is immediately vaporized and fails to transfer heat to your hands.) This doesn't work as well with objects that are only slightly above boiling temperatures.

Conclusion

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.

Help! I opened it up all the way and a metal spring came off. Now I can’t figure out the right way to put it back in. The spring keeps the handle upright. So, after you’ve vacuumed, when you put it back upright, there’s that kind of click you feel and the it stays upright instead of falling down. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Lad911@juno.com
