Abstract: In a floor nozzle for a vacuum cleaner the nozzle housing is provided with a substantially closed bottom, and it has in its upper housing portion a lockable opening, through which the suction chamber and the mechanical driving members of the cleaning means are accessible when the floor nozzle is in the operating position. The opening is locked by a cover which is hinged on the forward front face of the nozzle housing.
Abstract: On the bottom side of a vacuum cleaner there is arranged a flat spare part compartment extending substantially over the entire surface of the dust chamber for taking up operating instructions, replacement dust bags, fine filters and the like, which spare part compartment can be locked by a cover. The cover is suspended in the motor chamber zone by means of hinges and can be opened to an opening position of about 40.degree. or completely removed by pushing said cover beyond the opening position. In the handle region of the vacuum cleaner said cover has a key locking with a resilient tongue which engages in a clearance on the bottom side of the handle region. The cover is reinforced by ribs which extend onto the motor chamber side of the housing and which can serve as skids.
