Question about Electrolux Guardian Bagged Canister Vacuum
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

On my 6500, I just disconnected the air line from the switch and now the vaccuum won't sense the bag pressure; I just have to check the bag myself now.

The model E vac was made from 1954 to 1956. The worth depends on what the vac looks like and how it runs. Maybe between $50.00 to $100.00.

SOURCE: what charge for this service?
Actually there are no hidden screws on your Electrolux Epic model. This is the newer plastic body canister made by Aerus Electrolux. In order to open the vacuum cleaner to inspect the motor, first open the vacuum bag door and remove the vacuum bag. After the vacuum bag has been removed, keep the vacuum bag door open.
The two rubber furniture guards on both sides of the vacuum cleaner are actually what are holding the top housing and the bottom housing together. You'll need to slide both of these rubber furniture guards off in order to open the rest of the vacuum cleaner. They slide forward towards the vacuum bag housing which is why the door needs to be open.
In order to get these slides started, it's sometimes necessary to put a flat head screwdriver in between the back of the furniture guard and the start of the cord reel housing. Right after the rubber starts behind the word Electrolux. Fit a flat head screw driver in this gap, and it's sometimes easier to use a hammer, and hit the screw driver that's on the furniture guard facing the front of the vacuum.
With a little perseverance, you should be able to get the slide started, and when the slide starts to come out past the vacuum bag housing, simply grab the end of it with a pair of pliers, and pull the rest of it out of the vacuum.
Do this on both sides of the vacuum, and you'll be able to separate the two housings, and get access into the motor compartment.
If you have any problems, or would like me to take a few pictures of this being done, I'd be happy to do so. Please just rate my repair as helpful if you found this advice useful. I really do appreciate this.
