Excellent question, however a D3 is basically a problem free vac. All you need to do to maintain it is keep a stock of fresh 4 ply bags and periodically remove the lid from the head and clean out any dust and dirt building up around the motor or brush roll. There are 5 philips screws recessed in the lower housing , accessible from underneath the head , Once removed the lid will lift of and you can vacuum any dust away from the motor and brush roll. There are two hex nuts holding the power head motor in place and if loosened they will change the tension on the brush roll and belt so check the tension before tampering with them.
NOTE On this vac a properly installed brush roll will stop the motor and kick out the breaker/reset on the vac if the brush roll is gripped firmly against the brush opening with a hand securely gripping it.
I mean grab it VERY tight or you will have it slip and blister your fingers. If the belt / motor position is too loose or if the belt has a broken tooth, it will rattle like a machine gun , because it is slipping.
If too tight it will kick out the motor rest continually.You can periodically remove the belt, turn it inside out for inspection and examine for cracking or loose teeth by rolling through your fingers and pull the brush up and slightly forward from its housing to inspect for hair and thread at the end of the brush roll. There are recessed ball bearings inside the wood on the brush roll and they need to be kept clear of buildup on the outside.
Spray any wheel squeaks with wd 40, with the straw in place, justy a quick burst and you can also do this on the very end at the centre of the Power head motor , however DO NOT spray the carbon brush copper surface area as WD will burn. If you are very methodical you can actually remove the carbon brushes which are offset and clean them with a dry cloth and inspect for chipping and wear. Pay attention to their position and do only 1 at a time. That's all. Electrolx 101.
Post back with how you make out.
PS parts come from an AERUS Electrolux source but a good pro vac shop can give you great service too as this same vac is now sold under several labels.
