Thank you for your question on the wiring of the replacement relay for the vacuum.

The fuse is the fat spot in the wire going to the motor in the picture.

I am sorry but I thought I had that information but cannot find it at the moment. I will need to call the manufacturer support team again and then make some changes on the drawing to be sure.

I remember that the locations of the connections were the same but the identification of the terminals was different.

I have repaired many vacs like this. It is easy once you know the secret. To get to the hidden screws, you will have to remove the large bag access door. Open the door like you are going to change the bag. Then press it back toward the rear of the unit. It sounds like it is breaking, but it isn't. The hinge has to disconnect from the socket. This will expose two screws. To get to the other two screws, you will have to snap off the long strip along the rear end of the vac. This will expose the motor unit.

Thank you for your question on the replacement process for the suction motor. I am sorry that I do not have this process for the older model.

First you will need to open the tool storage cover and dust bag cover up and over backwards until the pivot arms pop out of the canister base. (No they will not break.) This exposes the two front screws on the motor canopy cover front edge under the seal on the corners. Then you will need to remove the step button for the rewind power cord on the back of the motor cover. I have found (at least it works for me) that if you have the vacuum canister at waist lever with open bag compartment against your body, reach back to the back side of the step button with both hands and compress the back side of the plastic and pull forward and up and the same time to pop the step button off the top of the motor canopy. Note! The return spring for the button will pop out of position when you do this. It sits in a round mold pocket in the button and on a post on the motor canopy.

Once you have this removed it will expose the two other recessed Phillips head screws to remove and lift straight up on the motor canopy to remove as set to the side.

The motor is just a friction fit into the housing.

When putting back the canopy and the set button, align the spring in its location a pop the step button back in place.

I hope these instructions will help you to replace the suction motor.

Thank you.

Thank you for you question on the water being sucked up in the canister vacuum motor.

All the air that is sucked up by the vacuum cleaner goes through the motor to cool it. When you introduce water to the air flow it will go into the motor and short out the motor windings.

If you replace the motor and the relay, that should repair the vacuum cleaner back to normal operation.

You should not need any more parts than that to fix the vacuum.
