Having problems with your Electrolux Guardian Bagged Canister Vacuum ?

I have a Guardian that we purchased maybe 10 years ago. The swivel joint connecting to the brush head has worn and the brush does not operate unless you turn to extream angle. How do i resolve?

Answers :

If this is the same one as what is pictured in the picture next to your description, then this is a common problem.

For starters you will want to disconnect the power brush from the wands or poles.
Look on the neck piece, towards the front of the neck, you are looking for either a screw, or a round cover. If its a round cover, you want to remove it to reveal the screw, and then remove the screw.
Once the over is off you should see 2 wires, brown and orange. They should both be connected to the pins for the electrical connection on the power head.

What I suspect here is that the wires are 1) off 2) broken. If they are off, just replace it onto the pins and your good to go. If the wires are broken, you will have to fix those wires. Fixing the wires is not so bad, you do have to make sure there is no exposed wire when your done, however, soldering them and taping them is not uncommon.

Good luck,

We have a Hoover upright vacuum cleaner, model Core 7. There is a switch that turns on and off the brush drive. This operates via a cam with a bearing putting pressure on the final drive belt to engage the brush head. My brush head is not turning and with the lever set to engage the drive there is still considerable slack in the final drive belt. There appears to be only a bearing deflecting the belt, should there be a pully or other device mounted on this bearing? There is so much slack a

Yes, there should have been a white plastic sprocket on top of the bearing - in its channel the belt would sit. Unfortunately no parts are available for this unit that can be bought retail - only available by order to dealer repair shops.\012\012\012 ... Hoover Vacuums

I have a bosch bagless jet 12 amps/1450 W which I got secondhand. the switch to operate the powerhead (the rug brush) no longer gives me any results.

Hoover WindTunnel S3765. The motor spins and the belt turns when I turn the brushes on, and the brushes will spin. The problem is that when I do this on carpet, the brushes stop spinning. As soon as I pull the "head" off the carpet, the brushes spin again. It's almost as if the vacuum suction is too great. I took the head apart and watched the motor turn the metal spindle that the belt rests on, and the belt turns as well.
