Hi, yes, the turbo nozzle can be broken down with just a little time and effort. The two plastic wheels in the rear pop out, and then you'll see 6 screws on the bottom of the unit. Once these have been removed, gently pry the top and bottom pieces of the turbo nozzle apart, and you'll have access to the belt, gears, and brush inside. Good luck!

If this solution was helpful, please consider rating it. Thank you!

Can the Turbo Brush on a Bissell vacuum be repaired?


Hey Teri! If you have good suction from the end of the upholstery hose, the turbobrush should rotate as long as there isn't anything binding the brush. Otherwise, a new turbobrush will need to be purchased.

Here's a quick link to ordering one online.

My vacuum hose won't power on but the vacuum in the attic powers on


I guess you are talking about the power nozzel not working. Try pushing the reset button on the top of the power nozzel first. Make sure you have the switch on the hose handle is in the right possition. If it still dosen't work, you could have a bad switch or a broken wire in the hose itself. If this is the case, you'll have to take it to the shop. All you need to take is the hose and the power nozzel.

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)

I just replaced the drive belt on a Guardian vacuum and am having difficulty putting the cover on. Is there a trick?


There is a collar on the power nozzel elbow where the elbow goes to the nozzel. You need to pry it off with a screw driver. Don't worry about it breaking. It just snaps off and on. This will make it easier to get the top aligned. Make sure that the front of the cover is touching the rubber bumper and lay the cover down to the back side of the nozzel. You will have to lean the elbow up when you are trying to get the cover down in place. You'll see what I mean when doing this. When you replace the screws, you'll have one that is shorter than the rest. The short screw goes in the hole on the front side of the nozzel on the part that the motor is not on. Hope this helps.

The brush on the power nozzle N137P does not rotate on my Guardian and I can't get it apart to see if the belt is broken.


First of all, have you tried pushing the reset button?Do you hear the brush motor come on when you push the switch on the hose? If the belt is broken the brush will spin freely without any resistence.
The elbow of the power nozzel has a history of breaking and one or both wires in it will loose connection and the motor will not run.
There are five screws on the bottom of the power nozzel. Four long screws and one shorter screw. Be sure to mark where the short screw goes for re-assembly. Then the top will lift off. You might want to take it to your Aerus/Electrolux shop for repair. Your Guardian should be under waranty.

We've used this 5 times...the tools work, but not the main unit


Hi, W/D here. Couple of things will make your life difficult with these machines. What usually happens is that the cleaning solution sets up in the tubing and hose low points as a gel. Sometimes the attachments work, sometimes the floor spray will work or any combination thereof. If the tools work, the pump is ok. Put hot hot water in the machine and take it outside onto dry concrete if possible. Operate the pump, alternating the action between the attachments and the main head. By alternating pressures, usually the tubing will slowly release and become operational again. The only other thing to do is what you were doing, tracing tubing back and feeling for set up material. Hopefully this will work for you. The only good advice that will help you is to always run a last load of just plain water through the machine when the shampooing day is done. Flush through the main discharge and the attachment discharge, getting the cleaning solution completely out of the machine. This will also clean the suction side of the machine before you put it away.
Best regards, --W/D--

Rainbow e series musty odor


The unit and the nozzle have to be taken apart and cleaned. You almost for sure will need a new HEPA and possibly even the motor cooling filter. There is a lot of dust inside that got moist (moisture in the air,vacuuming wet carpet, maybe you have pets or everything together)

It will require a bit more advanced skills but you do not have to be a vacuum repair professional to do this.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
There are 2 types of Turbo Brushes, the electric type driven by a power head or power nozzle most likely used on a canister type vacuum or a central vacuum driven by electricity and there is an air driven power head. In either case the belt should be riding on the brushroll pulley on the end or if it is an air driven power head, sometimes the pulley section is in the middle, and the other end would run off the motor pulley / shaft. If you have a flat belt it is suggested that you change the belt every 4 to 6 months, if you have a geared belt, suggested change would be one year or so. I am not sure on the Brand of turbo brush you have, but you can refer to your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or the yellow pages, or contact the manufacturer for a phone # or website address, some times if you have a air driven turbo power brush it may be cost efficient to replace the brush instead of repairing the turbo brush. Just a suggestion.
Example: www.turbobrush.com – this may or may not be the website address not knowing the brand name.
Thanks, Don – The Vac Man
Go Ahead. Use Us.
