    Sears repair service has advised the motor is bad and no longer available but I'm not ready to accept that as the final answer. A look at the power harness is certainly worthwhile and also a look at the brushes inside the motor. I suspect Sears is more a parts replacement operation than a repair service.

    I have the same problem. My Electrolux Ambassador will not turn on -- no power whatsoever. It has been working fine with no indication of something going wrong. Is there anything like a reset button?

How do i open the housing of an electrolux ambassador model #c101j to fix cord recoil


This can be a complex undertaking, so I highly recommend taking it to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store for repair. I've seen many disassembled machines come in to the shop because the owner couldn't figure out how to put it back together. Any misplaced wires during reassembly can result in nonworking vacuum, shock and even fire hazard.
Taking it to the shop may cost more, but I believe is less expensive in the long run. They'll do it right.

Bag full switch is bad


I assume this is an Electrolux Canister with long narrow body and a dial control on top for adjusting the bag fill level.. Please confirm model and name on canister, as in LE, Ambassador, Renaissance, etc.
If this is a plastic bodied unit with 2 side bumpers the body opens like a **** shell after sliding the bumpers out the front. The normal cause is a failed control valve under the dial at the top center of the vac. The failed part can only be replaced, not serviced and can purchased through an AERUS Electrolux repair center. Please confirm and I can wa;lk you through the process if required

I need a price for a wand for my electrolux ambassador 2100 vacuum cleaner


This same wand is used on all older canister models since 1974 until about 1995.
Metal wand, about $24.
Upper wand assembly, about $34.

Parts should be available at any Aerus shop.
Of course, you can try to find used ones, often with complete vacuum, at second hand stores, pawn shops, yard sales, estate sales, etc.

Hi, I have an Electrolux Ambassador

Hi, I have an Electrolux Ambassador and the other day I was vacuuming a fringe carpet and the fringe made the Electrolux stop (has happened before) and when I pressed the reset button, the motor is on but the wheel does not spin. Any suggestions?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. There are 2 possibilities that could be happening. Either the belt is broken of which you can replace the belt @ least one a year for proper maintenance or there may be a reset for the vacuum in case you get something caught in the brushroll section of the vacuum. Check both of those items and it should work unless you have a motor burn out – if you did there would be a burning smell. Feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area.

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.
