    Further question - the instructions for the switch replacement are great, but fail to advise how to open the unit to get to the switch.  Without that knowledge, the switch cannot be replaced!

    Likewise - anyone figure out how to get at the switch?

  • rbelzil May 20, 2009

    Yeah, same issue. I can't figure out how to split the canister housing of my Electrolux L-E 2100 open without damaging it. Once its open I'm sure I can trace the circuit just fine, and replace whatever is broken, but how to open the @#$&%$ canister?.

In yhe side of you canister there is a ruber molding on each side. Open the door to access the bag and you will be able to pull these two molding straight out this will allow you to split the canister.

Replacing on/off switch of Electrolux
Posted by Hunky Bill on Apr 24, 2008
How do I replace the on/off switch and housing of an Electrolux 2100 vacuum?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Replacing an on/off switch is removing the screws and marking the wires so you can back track when you install the new switch, this is a "Hi-Tech" Canister. The one with the BIG machine end that looks like a plastic "donut" with brass contacts on it. Canadian, originally, I think... --- check to see if your local vacuum dealer has a schematic on the switch in order to install it correctly, I’ve seen the canister but rarely worked on the canister. 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.

How do i get the funky smell out of my 2100 electrlux


Hi, it's Allie from Crucial Vacuum!

Vacuums are supposed to help your home smell better, but when they don't there is definitely something wrong. Odors in vacuum cleaners can be caused by several things. If the vacuum is a bagged unit, replacing the bag often will help in minimizing any odors from debris caught inside the bag.

Keeping your unit's filters clean and replacing them periodically will also reduce unwanted smell in your unit. Washable filters are recommended to be washed at least once a month and replaced, as non-washable filters, every 3 to 6 months.

Finally, if your unit is a bagged unit you may benefit from using a scent tablet that you can put inside a new filter before running your unit. You can try these fresh scent tablets: http://www.crucialvacuum.com/vacuum-scent-tablets-10pk.html

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 Electrolux 2100 vacuum. I have found and repaired the broken rocker on/off switch. What I need to know is where does the spring with the rubber tube inside it get connected? Thanks Alan


As you're looking at the switch side, the short end of the spring clips over the right end of the rocker. The long end clips into the rectangular hole at the other end of the switch housing.. The rubber piece will point to the rear.

Electrolux canister vaccum 2100


The filter for your Electrolux 2100 is located on the rear top of the machine. It is covered by a plastic grill. You simply place your finger in the rear of the plastic grill, push the tab in slightly and lift the grill up to expose the filter. The filter is approximately 4" by 6". It is NOT washable. Most Vac Shops sell replacement filters in addition to them being available at the local Electrolux distributor.

Call your local Aerus Electrolux office. If there is a problem in the electrical system you should get that checked before you continue with the machine. As for the cord replacement- Any Aerus service dept. can do that for you. I say an Aerus office because should you let a non-Electrolux employee work on it you will void your warranty.
