ELECTROLUX model 1623 switch replace

This 1623 model canister vacuum has a top mounted rectangular switch that you step on/off with your foot. The handle is a recessed hole in the switch area that you plunge your hand into to pickup the canister.
I dont see any screws to remove. I am trying to gain access to the switch which is not working. There are strips/bumpers along both sides that I have tried sliding off but they wont slide off and there dont seem to be any screws under these strips/bumpers. Can you help? Thanks.

How do you remove the bottom of the electrolux model 1572E to replace belt?


the discovery electrolux are different. :)
The top comes off, not the bottom like other vacuums.
After taking the screws out, turn the vacuum on its side (vacuum handle to your left, front of vacuum to your right when looking at bottom).
There are two rectangular holes, one on top above the wheel and one on bottom below the other wheel. Place a flat head screw driver in one of the holes and pry gently, pushing handle of screwdriver toward your right. At same time pull up on top plastic of vacuum. Do the same thing for the other side. Top should come off.
Best to you.

I have a Electrolux canister model L-E (circa 1986). Won't turn on. I think the foot switch is broken inside. Was working fine - turned it off then would not turn on BUT foot switch sounded different,...


I have one of these LE models also. Yes, the on/off button is broken. I have had to replace it twice on mine. My local vacuum repair shop suggested NOT to use your foot to operate this switch, but just press it on or off with your fingers. That will help to keep it from breaking.

I have an electrolux 2100 and it won`t shut off when i depress the top button? thank you


You need to replace the switch button:

Take out the bag and keep the door open.
While the bag door is still open, turn the machine upside down so you are looking at the serial number.
Pull the cord out one foot.
Use a puddy knife and put it between the rubber side rails and the **** end of the machine.
Use a hammer or malett to hit the putty knife from the back of the rubber bumber toward the bag door.
Pull the rubber bumber stright out on both sides.
Once both bumpers are out pull the lower body of the canister from the **** end toward the intake of the machine.
Once the bottom is open you can then service the motor, cord winder, switch, and all other components.

Don't know where to turn on the vacuum of the electrolux guardian. Bought it used. Can you help?


Usually these types of vacuums havve a foot operated switch that is part of the body and kind of blends in with the body of the vacuum, they may also have a switch on the handle.

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

Older electrolux on/off switch


I'm not exactly sure which model you have, but I'll take a guess. Usually there are four screws that hold the cover on the top of the machine. One in the very front, one in the handle, and then two under the sliding exhaust cover near the rear. There are variations of this but it's usually the two exhaust screws that get missed. Good Luck!

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.

Eleectrolux canister sweeper power switch


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.
