Eleectrolux canister sweeper power switch

We have a 20 year old Electrolux canister sweeper, Special Edition Model # 1623. The power switch on top is not working. How do I get the top apart to get at the switch. I see no screws. I don't want to break the case by prying on it.

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.

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.

On-off switch


Hi Hugh. The 2100 has a rocker switch under neath the button. it is probably broken, or the button has a worn detent spring. If you would like, I could send you a switch kit with the rocker, button, and detent spring enclosed for around 20 dollars plus ship. If you want to investigate further, The side bumbers on the canister slide off towards the front thus breaking the machine in half. You can then access the switch mechanism and see what is going on. I hope this helps, let me know. Thanks, Rene(the Vacuum doctor)

Electrolux canister special edition problem


If this canister has a "bag full" light and auto shutoff, there is an internal diaphragm switch controlled by a dial on top of the vac. Set the dial for medium setting. Install a fresh bag and test again.
There is a pinhole in the throat of the vac which allows air to flow through a tube to the diaphragm. Check to see that it is not blocked with a grain of sand. There is a second pin hole in the corner of the bag chamber check there as well for blockage. If this vac is less than 20 years old the control valve for the diaphragm often cracks and needs to be replaced. You would access it by peeling ( like a banana) the soft rubber bumpers off the side of the vac and sliding the locking keys underneath the bumper out the front end of the vac when the bag door is open.Then gently popping the housing apart from FRONT to back. DO NOT try to pry the back housing off. Caution, this is normally performed on a cradle in a repair shop designed to hold all the components in place

Electrolux Ambassador stainless lower wand
Posted by Cuyler on Jun 01, 2008
I am trying to locate a stainless lower wand for an Electrolux Ambassador model 1623. The search has proven fruitless so far. Any suggestions?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. A couple of thought came to mind that you can try. Look in the yellow pages for your local vacuum dealer to see if they carry it to contact your Electrolux factory @ the phone # listed below. 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.

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.)
