Question about Electrolux Guardian Bagged Canister Vacuum
Hi, you very likely have a defective control valve under the dial on top of
the vac , or a kink or blockage in the tiny pressure hose that feeds
the air from the throat of the vac or the back of the bag chamber
against the two sides of the rubber diaphragm inside the valve.
You can inspect the tiny hose ports for blockage and clean them with a fine piece of wire. To access the control valve you will open the bag chamber door and slide the bumpers forward with their internal locking keys with a pair of pliers. Once removed the body will open like a **** shell front to back. The control valve will likely have a crack in its threading and can only be replaced with a genuine part available at an AERUS Electrolux store. The fix is a most often a new valve.
This vac is the RUBIKS cube of all vacs. It reassembles with ease when all wiring and tabs are perfectly aligned, so open slowly,upside down , wheels up , mark your wiring and take your time reassembling.
When it all clicks EASILY together without the bumpers, you have it done right

I had this same problem with a 6500. Sheikhtijani's solution along with http://www.fixya.com/support/t1470586-need_service_manual_electrolux_6500 gave me the information to fix it. My actual problem was that the vinyl air hose leading from the throat to the control valve is so old that it slips right off of the control valve connector. I will be replacing that hose.
The measurements I made of the clear vinyl hose were: Outer diameter = 7.6 mm Inner diameter = 4.86 mm length = 52.7 cm
