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.)

Why does not my rainbow vacuum will not pick up dirt


Check you belt first. Check for a clogged hose. You can do this by putting the other hose on the exhaust of unit with the crevice tool. Blow air through the other hose to see if anything comes out. This is good to do anyway to ensure clean hoses.

My Dyson DC17 is picking up on the floor, but the wand is not working. I cleaned out a clog from the port in the back, but the wand still isn't working.


If there's no suction at the end of the wand, check at the end of the hose. If none here, then there's none at the powerhead, so it's not picking up either.
Check the hose. A clog at the tank port generally result in a clog in the hose as well. If none are visible, detach hose completely, hold one end up and drop a coin in. Lifting the hose should result in the coin falling through. Not doing so means a clog. You may be able to push it through with a broom handle. If that doesn't work, try holding the powerhead end of the hose to the tank port. Turn the vacuum on. This may provide enough suction to pull the clog through.
If not, and you have access to a shop vac or air pressure hose and generator, try blowing the clog out with one of these. Or you can buy an air mattress pump and try that.

The best way to clear an obstruction is to blow it out by attaching the wall end to the exhaust of a shop vacuum, or using an air compressor.
You can try holding the wand end of the hose directly to the CV in port and turning the machine on. This provides essentially the same action as the previous method.
If neither of these work, try a combination of the two. Or using a shop vac, hold the wall end to the exhaust of the vacuum and the wand end to the in port of the shop vac. Turn shop vac on and the obstruction should come out.
Borrow a good strong shop vacuum if you need to.
If these methods fail, take it to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store and have the service tech try to clear it. Care must always be taken when trying to clear an obstuction with a long object, especially if it's pointed. I've seen many hoses that have shorted out and even caught fire due to the wiring accidentally being "nicked".

How do you unclog a hose on a Bissell proheat powerlifter


Detach the hose completely.
Plug wrong end of hose into in port of vacuum.
Turn on. This should remove the clog.
If not, try using a vacuum with an exhaust blower to blow out the clog. Most canisters have these. An air pressure hose may work as well.

No air pressure to **** up dirt


First test suction on unit without the hose, is there suction? If yes, attach hose and test. If no go to the door to outside, attach hose to the top of unit where it blows (under handle on top), put hose out door and turn on. The stuff clogging the hose should blow out the end.

If it wasn't the hose check the wand, and then the power nozzle and using the above to clear obstruction.

No suction from base or hose attachment


Hi,
I had the same problem with my Eureka vacuum cleaner. I don't have the problem with the beater bar, but I had the problem with the attachment hose not getting any suction. I found out that I was putting attachment on the wrong end of the hose. The end that you use in the front. Don't how I got that confused because it always worked before. Hope this helps with the hose part of the problem.

Steam and spray


the heater may be clogged. You will have to take it aprt, pull the hoses off, using somothing small, clean out the prots that the hoses hook to. After that, blow thru it if you can to see if air comes out. Then after it is put back together, put a mix of vinegar and water in and let it run thru until it works good again. Calicum and such plug up the works and just need to be cleaned out.
