What switch? If the switch is inside the tank, open it from the underside with 3 screws.

How do I get at, and then repair or replace a not working on-off switch of an electrolux ambassador?

You should take it to your local vacuum shop and have it serviced. This is not an easy switch to replace. First, you will likely never figure out how to take it apart, and second, if you do, you will likely never get it back together correctly. Trust me, I've been repairing vacs for over 26 years. This is one you will be wise to spend a little bit and have a proffessional do it.

I have an old AP 200 Electrolux Canister Vacuum cleaner. Can,t figure out how to take it apart to check the main switch & motor. What is the trick to getting it apart?

The whole thing comes apart like a puzzle. The side rubber pieces on each side slide outward to front of machine. After they are removed everything comes apart. Make diagrams so you will not forget how to put back together. If you need any more help, let me know. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

The sweeper part is on, but the canister part is not

The problem is most likely the switch. It could be a bad/worn switch, or simply a broken wire or bad connection to the switch. An easy fix at an authorized Electrolux service center.

Have an electrolux 2100 canister vac, it has lost suction power thru the years. no clogs in newer hose or in sweeper. even with new bag, filter and belt only increases power minimally.

Have you ever over the years replaced your brushroll ? Have you tried dropping a coin thru the hose from one end to see if it comes out the other end ? Have you taken the wand loose from the elbow ( the swivel part of your carpet sweeper) to see if there was a blockage ? Does the motor make a strange noise ? Have you ever had a tune-up on your vac.
You might think about taking your vac to your Aerus/Electrolux shop.

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.

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: Customer Service

No Power coming thru hose handle

It probably wouldn't help, it sounds like the switch. Have you tried pushing the reset button? (It's a little red button on the end of the power nozzle.)

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.
