Follow the suction path starting at the motor, follow how the air travels through your model from the motor to the carpet. It has to be somewhere in there you have a clog or a suction leak.

My electrolux ergorapido does not seem to have much suction, it is also very quiet. is this just the way it is?? i am the second owner, i have cleaned everything.

I took mine completely apart, removing every screw to get to the motor which was full of lint, hair and god knows what. I removed all the debris I could by hand, put it back together, and it works like new. I think debris gets in if the filter part is pushed too far down and the hole in the cup is open to the top part. My husband wanted to throw it out but I figured "what the heck". It's broken, it won't get more broken if I take it apart, it's only a year old.

Reset button or Fuse on my Infinity?

Ok, I took it apart, cleared the clog out, and put it back together. It wouldn't switch to "carpet". Got no answer on my question. Took it apart again, only I went further. Took apart the bottom - brush out, all inside bottom parts out, cleaned all that part of vac. No clogs down there. Ran the carpet/bare floor switch back and forth several times while I had it apart. Put it all back together and it worked fine. Still didn't find a fuse or reset button...

Wiring schmatic for kenmore canistar vacuum

Generally, there are two wires inside the unit which connect to the wiring going down the suction hose.  Since the unit is a/ doesn't matter which of them goes to which terminal.  The wires are switched in some cases.  Look for the open terminal.

Remove the sole plate turn the 3 plastic screws to unlock & lift off.

Now remove the blockages that have accumilated from the oppening of short clear hose.

If not check the knob on side of machine is in drive (D) position.
