Yes, it indead has the clutch. It has the adjustment you have pictured that can switch it from carpet to bare floor. It is called an ALL FLOOR model. Unfortunately!!!! What a pain! I discovered after posting that this is the indicator of clutch or clutchless. Oh well.
Get this: It is under warranty for 5 years --- But I have NO SERVICE centers near me to take it. They can't even pull up
one on their system within any range of my zipcode. Therefore the warranty is pointless, right - unless I mail it to them and be out
of a vacuum for weeks. However, at least the representative was kind, gave a part number and let me know he thought
I was probably savvy enough to do the job! However, he offered no schematic or instruction by which to do it! Also, the CS said
only ONE belt- the clutch belt attached to beater bar, but, clearly, he is wrong! The clutch in all clutch models has two belts on the clutch. Perhaps he just didn't understand my question! Anway...
I found this last night:
I didn't know how on earth to take the clutch apart without destroying it!
Thanks for your help. I will let you know when my carpets look nice again! teehee
