Electrolux Discovery II 1500c Upright Handle Switch Assembly

Hi, The on/off [off/floor/carpet] switch on my Electrolux Discovery II 1500c became jammed. When I removed the screws from the handle assembly, it slipped and the parts flew apart before I could see the configuration. I need to find a diagram somewhere to ascertain the correct reassembly.

Turns out, the plastic slider/switch cover that shows on the outside of the handle and what physically moves the actual inner switch had a chuck of plastic broken on one side that was hanging it up. Luckily, the piece was right there and krazy glue worked on this particular kind of plastic [bless them].

Now, I'm having problems getting the whole assembly back together so that it will slide. The problem now is that I cannot get the switch, the nylon switch housing, a little H-shaped nylon piece that acts as a spacer/bushing/shim to hold the switch/switch assembly in place within the handle, and the outer switch slider-thing to go back together so that they fit snuggly - I have too much play and the outer switch slider doesn't get a good grasp on the actual switch to move it without the whole thing bobbing.

Is there a known schematic online somewhere that anyone knows of? I just need to see something that shows the proper config. I think I have it together right, but may be missing a piece that flew out of sight.

Thanks!

Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. I have a U6445 but i suspect there is little difference. Mine has only 2 screws as well and it also was very stiff. After a bit of medium pressure and a twist side to side mine came off.

Hi its Darran at Dyson.

The brush control is designed to switch the brush bar off automatically when you stand the machine back into the upright position. It is designed this way to protect any delicate floor surfaces when you have the machine switched on and upright and when you are using the hose.

If the brush control should be in the centre position and move forward to the "on" position when you release the head. If it is not doing this, please contact our Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Kind regards

How do you start an electrolux floor pro


Hi,
With the shampooer plugged in the receptacle and in an upright position with the handle up, step on the handle release with your left foot at the bottom left of the unit. It will release the handle back and also triggers the "on" switch at the same time. voila!
Hope it helps! amerivac4u@yahoo.com

Hi Janet. Thank you for asking this question. Your vacuum wasn't designed with a brush on/off switch so having the brush continually spin is normal for your vacuum.

I have an electrolux discovery II vacuum cleaner and the floor function works, but when I try to switch over to carpet mode, it doesn't seem to engage.


There is a red reset button on the back of the machine. When it trips, the brush won't engage. Press the reset button and then try your machine again.

The switch is replaceable, so you don't need to replace the complete handle assembly. I've got a 3500 that I replaced the switch on and it works great now. You can get a new switch at the local Aerus Electrolux store. To find the nearest store, just follow the directions on the below site.
I do recommend letting the service tech do the replacement.

Brush will not spin


Hello :

Try this: switch the carpet/bare floor dial back & forth 5 times, ending on carpet. Tilt the handle back as if to vacuum upright & lay the vacuum on its side so it is resting on the side opposite the carpet/bare floor dial. Turn the vacuum on.
