Older electrolux on/off switch

Greetings! I have an older (25+) canister electrolux (silver bullet?) which still works beautifully. However, the on/off switch doesn't work well at times. I'm trying to get the cover off the canister, removed the screws, but can't get the cover off. Please help!
thanks

I'm not exactly sure which model you have, but I'll take a guess. Usually there are four screws that hold the cover on the top of the machine. One in the very front, one in the handle, and then two under the sliding exhaust cover near the rear. There are variations of this but it's usually the two exhaust screws that get missed. Good Luck!

I need the Manual for #2100 Electroluks vacc


Service manuals for the Electrolux vacuums, including the accessories, are only available to the franchise owners and service techs.
Also, having said that, I don't recommend fixing the switch yourself. Replacing the switch involves disassembly of the canister, which is a bit complicated. Putting it back together correctly, without crimping wires. even more so.
I used to be an Electrolux service manager and have seen vacs brought in in pieces. Customers had succeeded in dismantling the machine, but were unable to reassemble it. Or had cracked or broken a piece. This makes the repair more expensive.
Or machines were brought it that had been reassembled incorrectly and wouldn't work. Or worse had shorted out due to crimped or incorrect wiring.
I strongly suggest taking the vacuum to a repair shop that is familiar with the older Electrolux vacuums, in this case the plastic models.

The red light on my electrolux vacuum comes on and cuts power.


If the bag full light keeps coming on, you can first try adjusting the dial on top of the vacuum cleaner. If that does not work, then you need to change the control valve. This is an internal component of the canister and is directly below the dial. You will need to follow the instructions on a previous post to open the Electrolux plastic canister vacuum, and remove the bage cage. Once you remove the bage cage you can change the control valve, and this will solve your problem with the bag full indicator.

Electrolux ambassdor will not run after pluggen in


Greeting from GoVacuum,

On all Electrolux canister vacuum cleaners, there is a kill switch, that will not allow the machine to turn on without a bag in it. Sometimes when replacing the bag, the bag is placed in a position where the switch is not being activated.

When you open the bag housing, it should look like this;

You'll notice in the bottom right corner of the bag housing, the kill switch to the vacuum cleaner.

Try plugging the vacuum cleaner in, and while you are pressing this kill switch down, turn on the vacuum cleaner. Does the vacuum cleaner turn on/off when you push/release the kill switch? If it does, simply just get a new bag, and make sure that the new bag is covering the kill switch, and close the door of the vacuum cleaner.

If it still doesn't start, let me know and I'll try to help you diagnosis the machine differently. I'd say that 6 out of 10 times, this kill switch is the problem.

I hope this helps you. Please email me with any questions, or if this fix doesn't make your vacuum work. I really enjoy sharing my passion, and expertise in repairing vacuum cleaners.

Hello, I have an Electrolux Twin Clean EL7055A vacuum canister, and can't switch it on anymore. The cleaning system is working well (so the power is ok) but the command which is not directly in the canister seems not working. What I can do to test if the problem is here?

1 Other User Has the Same Problem Comment by fayreid, posted on May 31, 2008 I have an Electrolux 6000 series that will not stay on, if you hold switch located inside canister down it stays on but once closed it will not. Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The problem you are describing sounds to me like you have a electrical hose problem where the wires on the inside of the electrical are bad and not creating a solid signal for the power. Or you may have a bad switch and both can be repaired but the electrical hose would be the more expensive of the two (2). You can check with your local vac dealer or contact the Electrolux website or factory phone # for further assistance. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Electrolux Canister - Stops working after 1-2 minutes.


Electrolux Canister - Stops working after 1-2...
Our vac works for a short time, then shuts off and makes clicking noise as if trying to restart again. Works after cooling for a while but for another very short time. Your suggestion on fix would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks


I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure
I would advise that it could be a thermal switch or a regular switch that the thermal switch is over heating and needs replacement – there are small hoses in the door section that could have been pinched or kinked and it stopping the air flow from the vacuum – also check for a clogged or plugged vacuum hose, a full vacuum bag or a dirty vacuum filter. Check the thermal switch or reg switch or the hoses in the door. Or feel free to contact your local vacuum dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or call the factory @ the phone number listed below:

Eleectrolux canister sweeper power switch


There should be screws holding the handle asembly on to the top. One near the from, another by the handle, then slide the door near the back, there are 2 more screws there. with the handle off, you can get to the switch. Hopefully you can fina a replacement, alot of parts for the older Electrolux is No Longer Available.
