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.

I have a S3765 Hoover Wind Tunnel with a crack in the hose close to the cannister. I know wires run through the hose and that there are wire connections on either end of the hose. The replacement hose...


If the vacuum has been maintained properly and runs well it may be worth repairing. The hose is pricey but less than a new vacuum. Many new vacuums today, especially lower priced ones are very poor quality and don't last much longer than a year. It appears by the schematics of your model you can replace just the hose section or the entire hose assembly. Replacing the hose only would require removing the ends of your old hose and installing them on the new hose.

My Epic 6500 power head will not turn on. Had to push the reset many times the last time it ran, and now it will not turn on. Help!


Does the power nozzle motor come on? Is it just that the brush won't turn? If it's just the brush not rotating, the belt probably broke and needs replaced.
Is the brush clean? If not, clean all threads, etc. off.
Check all wire connections for breaks, cracks, and discoloration. Power nozzle to wand, wand to wand, wand to hose. If any of those are found, that part, and probably the one it connects to. will need replaced.
Ensure all connections are snug.
Internal wiring, including connections, could be bad. This would include wiring in the power nozzle, wands, hose, or canister.
Reset or hose switch could be bad. These would need replaced.
Power nozzle motor could be bad. Generally the belt will break before the motor burns out, but it's possible it's didn't.
For any internal repairs, including belt replacement, the entire vacuum should be taken to an authorized Aerus Electrolux dealer. The service technician can also troubleshoot and find the problem. This is generally done at no charge.
You've got a great machine, and with proper care and maintenance it should last for years to come.

Check all the wiring connections to make sure they're tight.
1/2. Wiring to power nozzle motor or reset switch is loose.
1. Cord from power nozzle to upper wand. If the plastic portion of the wand is cracked near the cord connection, or the connections are blackened, they need replaced.
2. Wiring connection from hose handle to upper wand. Check for cracks and discoloration as in 1 above. Replace if necessary.
3. Hose connection to vacuum. Not likely, but possible.
4. There could very well be a break in the hose wiring.
You may need to take your vacuum, with hose and power nozzle, to an authorized Aerus Electrux service shop. They can try a new hoze to see if that's the problem. If there is a break in the wiring, the hose is probably worn in other areas as well, and should be replaced.

How do you repair the hose if it is flattened in the mid way ?


Due largely to the electrical wiring, vacuum hoses are very difficulty to repair. If the hose is flattened/damaged, the wiring may have been damaged and construes a shock hazard at the least. Trying to repair the hose increases the possibility of wiring damage.
However, you can try getting a lenth of PVC or similar pipe that is a slightly smaller diameter than the hose. Insert one end into the canister end of hose and gently push it to the flattened area. Slowly and gently use it to work the flattened area out.
I don't know if this will work, but it's worth a try. If it doesn't, a new hose is needed.

How can i put on the snap ring on an eloctolux vacuum hose on the end piece of the hose; it is a swivel end and an older vacuum cleaner plastic canister type


The snap ring is generally found on a Canadian made LUX AP series prior to 1982 and it is in fact a coil spring you must leave the wiring off the handle. Be sure the steel cap and rubber o ring are on the tip of the hose. Slide the handle onto the hose with the hose tip facing upright. then with a small flat screwdriver separate the hooked tip of the spring from its body and run your screwdriver around the spring,feeding it into the groove inside the hose handle, spiraling as you go. similar to how you would feed a key onto a key ring. Before inserting the wire cover try to swivel thew handle it should rotate smoothly. Be very gentle inserting the wire cover pin as it will crack the handle. Use gentle pressure with pliers to start it , then squeeze it into place with your plier jaws fully open.
