Usually these types of vacuums havve a foot operated switch that is part of the body and kind of blends in with the body of the vacuum, they may also have a switch on the handle.

Electroluxl modelel6984a how to access cod reel


Turn Guardian on it's back, remove all screws from around the perimeter of the base, turn vacuum over on its' wheels, and pull up on entire casing (after removing HEPA Filter on top). It will come off but do so gently as to not disturb original parts settings inside. With 30 yrs. experience dealing almost exclusively with the original Electrolux, I have a legitimate store front business and do service by mail at a reasonable cost if interested. mickeymackmark1@yahoo.com
Hope that helps! Mick

How do you make it blow air out? trying to make air blow out,i have the hose that has controls on it. will work to **** up but when i put it to blow out will not come on.


The Guardian Canister vacuums have a blow port under the filter. So you need to remove the filter (on the Guardian Ultra, you have to open the top of the vacuum) by lifting it up the forward. Then disconnect the hose from the normal suction end of the unit and plug it into the blower port. Now turn on the vacuum. If the hose is clogged, position the other end of the hose at the suction port.

For the Guardian canister, select the high, medium or low force for the motor. Then blow the dust out from under the furniture or use to fill an inflatable. Turn off the vacuum and replace the hose in the usual position and replace the filter when done.

If you are still unable to get the unit to blow out when connected to the exhaust port after attempting to clear the hose, separate the hose, wand and handle. Look down the hose for any object that might be creating a one-way valve. Remove the foreign object.Do the same with the other parts of the unit. Also replace the vacuum bag. If the bag is sufficiently full, the airflow will be reduced through the bag to the exhaust and cause the problem you describe.

The Electrolux Guardian Canister Vacuums are part of the Aerus line. The manuals for the vacuums are available here: http://www.aerusvacuums.com/support/manuals/index.cfm . The Guardian Ultra is in the current model section. The Guardian is listed in the Older Model drop-down menu.

I hope this helps.

(many canister vacuums have a blower mode when you connect the hose to the exhaust (after the bag) instead of the suction side of the unit.)

I have an Electrolux Guardian Canister vacuum. The power cord was damaged but the cord winder still works fine. I have ordered a replacement cord and need to know how to remove the old cord and install...


I strongly suggest allowing a qualified service tech at an authorized Aerus Electrolux store take care of this. The disassembly and reassembly of the tank and cordwinder are tricky and complicated and incorrect reassembly can cause serious problems. Even to the extent of permanently damaging your vacuum, or worse, result in a shock hazard or fire.

How do I open the canister of the Aerus Electrolux Lux Guardian? I need to replace the retractable cord mechanism. Aerus won't help me.


Hi there,

This will not be difficult to open, however, inside may scare you.

Remove your hepa filter cartridge (if you have one)
turn the machine over.
Undo the 6-8 screws there and pull the bottom off.
you should see everything there. If you are careful, just remove the old rewinder, and replace with the new one.

Good luck.

Just bought new power head electrolux guardian and


Did you get new wands with the power nozzel? The wires that power the nozzel run through the wands from the hose to the nozzel.The connectors at the end of the wires are fomous for getting too big and making a bad connection. This causes the on/off problem. This will only get worse if you continued use. The wires in the hose handle, the hose and the power nozzel elbow can all be changed out. You will not have to replace the hose handle or the wands unless the plactic has been burned. (A loose electrical connection causes heat). Take your hose,wands and nozzel to the shop for repair. Don't let the sales/service manager tell you that you need new parts until you can see the parts are bad. I think they saw you comming when they sold you the new nozzel.(just my opinion)
