    My vacuum cleaner is an old model Electrolux L-E, serial number L37237F. I need to replace/repair the on/off switch. The large switch ?push button? protrudes through the top of the tank housing. I can get the part(s) thru TotalVac.com.
    I probably have to replace the on/off switch housing Part: EXR-3438ES. How do I open up the housing of my model LE tank style to access the switch parts to determine what needs replacing? I?m a mechanical engineer by trade and I don?t see a way to open it up. It?s probably simple if I knew the secret.

Wow my mum had one of them 50yrs ago ,worked well as i remember ,i think its just a push button on and off switch and to access the switch which was on the back end you pulled the bag out ,undone the nut on the switch and pulled it out ,it had two lucar connectors on the switch ,now something this old will be difficult to find so if you ask nicely in electrical wholesalers or similar iam sure they will find you a suitable switch ,ok its not the original but so long as it works ?? does it matter ,

Electrolux Epic series 3500 model Upright Vacuum cleaner motor(replace old one)?


I don't know what your question is, but replacing a motor for Electrolux, now Aerus, should be done by an authorized Aerus Electrolux service tech. The uprights are especially tricky to take apart and reassemble correctly. The address and phone number of the Aerus store/service center nearest you can be found at the site below.

It sounds like you may need a new switch rocker arm. If so this is not an expensive repair. I would suggest you takeit to a reputable vacum shop for repair.Chris

I have a 20yr old electrolux central vac that the motor just went bad. in wondering whether to replace motor or replace whole unit i have found an electrolux unit and a aerus unit. someone told me elect....


Motor to replace or rebuild:

Depending if your motor just started to get noisy, you can take it to a private vacuum repair shop and most rebuild for around $80 to $100.00. Usually they replace top/bottom bearing and the armature carbon brushes.

If it's loud and vibrating and probably sparking. Do not bother to rebuild, the armature is now probably damaged and not worth the new parts.

Replacing the motor is pretty basic and usually saves you about $150.00. They're pretty simple to release out of the unit and are pretty simple to remove and reinstall.

To find out your replacement motor number you will need to find the stamped model number on the motor itselt. It is a 6-8 digit number. That is the Ametek Motor Model number. Ametek is used in pretty well all central vacuum systems. Motors range from $99 to $239.00

The agitator brush of my central vacuum cleaner didn't roll.What's the problem of it?


If the power nozzle motor is running, then the problem is a broken belt. It's recommended that it be taken to an authorized shop for replacement.
If the PN motor is not running, locate the reset switch on top of the PN and depress. If the motor still does not come on, there's a problem in the wiring or power module. The entire machine, including hose, wands, and power nozzle needs to be taken to the nearest authorized shop for exact diagnosis and repair/replacement of parts.
If the machine is the old style Electrolux (now known as Aerus), not sold in home improvement stores, the nearest authorized store can be found on the below site. Just follow the instructions.

Vacuum cleaner Lux model motor fails to start


This vacuum has a 10 year warranty on the motor, and 5 years on everything else. Look in the yellow pages under vacuums, for the AERUS dealer, that is the new name for the traditional Electrolux company.....

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.

In your owner manual there should be a number you can call for service. If less then a year old, then it is under warranty.
