Question about Electrolux UltraLux 2000 Bagged Canister Vacuum
The on/off switch isn't working
Posted by Anonymous on
This machine model is a real bear to work on. It's a relative to what used to be called the "special model". I'm not sure if they purposely engineered it so that it was extremely difficult to repair or if that just came as a by product. If the switch is the problem you have to take the housing apart with the unit laying upside down, and this is accomplished by removing the rubber side bumpers by grabbing them at the rear of the machine with a pair of long nosed pliers and pulling. Sometimes they come off fairly easily, most times not. Once the bumpers are off, the unit becomes two halves. Lift the bottom section off and lay it aside while you take the vac bag chamber out of the top section and lay it aside. You should be able to see the switch at this point so that you can remove it and check it for continuity on and off. If it's faulty then you need to order a new part, if not then you need to check the cord assembly to make sure that's good. Whatever you find that's bad will need to be replaced, then re-assemble the unit and it should work fine.

Hi If the power head isn't working it may be clogged. Try taking it apart to see if threads and general dirt has got in at the sides. Also without the power head if the Miele still isn't working then its a possibility that the on switch wiring is either loose or check the plug at the end of the power cord.
