    I superglued the rocker switch inside (it had broken) but I too am uncertain how the "noodle" and the spring go back in.

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.

Shuts off (overheats) after 10 minutes. Protecto relay? How to take apart?


Your machine is what's called a "Special Model" and needs to be disassembled upside down in a form fitting tray, by removing the two side rubber bumpers, then taking off the bottom and finding the part that shuts it down. The best thing to do is to take it to an Electrolux repair shop and let them handle it. They have the trays and they're trained in the way it comes apart properly;

Cord will not reel in


Try standing machine upright to rewind. If it doesn't, it should be taken to a shop, authorized Aerus Electrolux preferrably, and a trained service tech allowed to fix it. There may be a broken piece in the cordwinder that needs replaced and it's cheaper to let them fix it in the first place than to take it apart and not be able to put it together again.
To find a shop near you, simply follow the directions on the following site.

I have an electrolux 2100 and it won`t shut off when i depress the top button? thank you


You need to replace the switch button:

Take out the bag and keep the door open.
While the bag door is still open, turn the machine upside down so you are looking at the serial number.
Pull the cord out one foot.
Use a puddy knife and put it between the rubber side rails and the **** end of the machine.
Use a hammer or malett to hit the putty knife from the back of the rubber bumber toward the bag door.
Pull the rubber bumber stright out on both sides.
Once both bumpers are out pull the lower body of the canister from the **** end toward the intake of the machine.
Once the bottom is open you can then service the motor, cord winder, switch, and all other components.

I'm looking for a used or reasonable priced motor for my Electrolux LE, series 2100 vacuum. LEE is shown as model but no searches respond to this as a model number. Help. Thanks, Max


Unfortunately, the Electrolux company as such no longer exists. Eureka bought the name "Electrolux" and started making Eurekas with Electrolux stickers on the outside. This makes for some confusion when looking for parts.

The company that used to make Electrolux is called Aerus, and they may still be manufacturing parts for those machines, but true Electrolux parts are getting scarce. I'd check the Aerus website and see if they have a way to get those parts, or at least a cross-reference.
