Having problems with your Electrolux Guardian Bagged Canister Vacuum ?

It's an old cannister electrolux vacuum cleaner and it's not worth to have it serviced. The motor is noisy it appears to be obstructed but I can't open it since I don't see any screws. Would you please tell me how to do it. Thanks Ray

Answers :

You will need to peel the soft rubber bumpers away from the side, like pealing a banana. Grip the bumper tabs with needle nose pliers from the bag area with door open. Underneath will be a set of locking keys which slide forward ONLY out the front of the machine. Once they are removed the front of the vac will scissor open allowing the rear housing to drop off. This is normally done in a cradle in a shop. Tag your wiring harness before removing the motor. The motor slides up out of keyed slots. replacement is the opposite.Rubber O ring is a motor seal and must be clean and properly aligned. Motor MUST reinstall with housing in slots. Check your fans for dirt and bearings for replacement. 8mm shaft size 108 bearing???
There is a latch on the top of the tank right above the exhaust hole. Lift, and it will release the back 5" of the unit

My electrolux ambassador power wand quit working. I replaced the switch that shuts it off when the roller stops, but it wasn't the problem. The on/off switch is fine, the motor is fine.
