well this afternoon I was helping someone clean out his "barn/ garage" when I stumbled upon this absolutely Georgeous Electrolux model G, it was rust red and turquoise in color with a pitted chrome paint. on the bag door was perfect for the winter season, it looked like snow. the inside of the machine however was a different story. there was a really warm feeling as the bag chamber was lined with fleece. I did not know if it ran due to all of the beautiful artwork but figured I would dig into it and see what was up.

here it is

well seeing this I guess I was a little too artsy with the description. anyway, I needed a new motor for my G and a new switch seeing that the original was shot. after a few minutes of tinkering with the motor in the destroyed machine I was able to get it running. smooth as glass the motor purrs and talk about power WOAH!!! this thing has power to spare and then some. I was a little afraid to power it up since it had not been touched in about 15+ years. and seeing that it sat for so long I feared that the bearings would be far gone, well I was totally wrong. after freeing the obstruction in between the fan and the fan casing the motor spins freely, a little bearing noise is there but not much at all, it is hardly noticable when running.

for 3 years straight I have been waiting to post this.

here is my model G.

I have had the same exprience with an old electrolux I have I think it is a model 12 that it took a really wide plug almost like an old electric frying pan, well I found an old cloth covered wide ftying pan cord that was in descent shape. I to figured as long as I have had that old machine it may not run either but when I pluged it in, truned the switch it pured. I do not have any attachments for my 12 but it is nice to know it actually runs.

On the throw away maching did you pitch it already? I need a tan wheel like the one that is on that back of that one.

Did the worn lux have the tools with it? If so what condition was they in?

Hello James

nothing came with the machine as it was just the machine. however I did find a rotted out hose a while back in the garage this was in. as far as restoring it, I dont think it could have happened as I would have needed a lot of time. lol
