I picked up another model G from a thrift store. I passed by it several times over the last couple of weekends. It was 75 percent off this past weekend. I have replacement wheels at home so I figured what the heck. The hose still holds good suction which is the main reason I got it. When I opened it up, I found it had a replacement lamb motor that doesn’t seem as strong as the original.

Will a motor from an E or older Electrolux, fit in a G? Just curious thanks!

lux designed thier own motors. it was replaced with a lamb motor? must've been modified since the bolts are so long to mount those motors.

Yes, vac shops used to do this from what I understand. It has a plate the motor screws into

I've read in some places by a poster that "G" stood for gentle and quiet performance in the model G. Is this official in any of the Electrolux literature?

Doubtful. I've never heard this. If that's the case, did "E" in the Model E stand for "Excellent" and "F" in the Model F stand for "Fantastic?" And what could be said for the Model XXX? That it was X-rated??!

I've seen the term "gentle" used in Model G literature. This coincides assigning letters to other models of that era, including:

E - Economical
F - Fully Automatic
T - Thrift
S - Special
L - Limited

XXX was Roman numeration for 30 and had nothing to do with what has become known as "adult entertainment" in our modern society.
