English term or phrase: loop amplifier
Here is the sentence "Carefully hold the base and the top of the loop amplifier."

It is talking about the tilt function of a vacuum cleaner...

Thanks for your help!

French translation:amplificateur de boucle
Explanation:
Assuming this clever vacuum cleaner uses some kind of induction loop system to guide it around, and that this amplifier is intended to amplify the signal picked up from that loop.

Otherwise, if that's not it, you'll need to give us more context to explain.

It could of course also be an amplifier in a control loop, for example... however, that seems to me less likely in your given context.

  -> Merci, Gilles ! Mais en effet, avec un peu plus de contexte, il s'agirait a priori plutôt d'un élément mécanique :-(
