Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Need to know how to open the canister of my Electrolux Ambassador vacuum to replace the switch


Answers :

If you switch still"clicks" you need a switch rocker, if it no longer clicks you will need a new switch button. You will get best results with the genuine button from an AERUS Electrolux repair shop

There are a set of body keys under the bumpers on this vac which slide forward to the front door with a set of pliers. They are locking one way so reinstall same direction . Examine the front hinge are before opening the vac. Once removed the panels will open like a **** shell from back to front. You will need to be careful realign all pieces in their tracks.
The switch is best accessed by removing only the bag cage. The housing will lif up without detaching wiring and the rocker and switch button will snap out as separate pieces. Test before reassembling and when done if the entire body does not assemble easily stop and check your alignment. It will click together like Lego pieces when you have it right.

My electrolux ambassador power wand quit working. I replaced the switch that shuts it off when the roller stops, but it wasn't the problem. The on/off switch is fine, the motor is fine. We have traced the problem to the wires inside the canister by opening the inside cover to the bag container. We see the power cords going into the canister but we're not able to get to anything. We can't find any screws to undo that would open it up in order to follow the wires deep into the canister. We've bypa

I want to open a Hoover S3825 Elite Cyclonic Vacuum to see if I can repair or replace the cord reel assembly. Currently the reel slowly draws the cord back into the canister once it is pulled out. I found the mounting screws under the rear wheels once I removed the hub but I do not know how to remove the rear wheels, everything is plastic. The front screws are under the front caster wheels and I think I need to take a screwdriver and pry off the little cylinder wheel to get to them by rotating

Kirby Vacuum Hi Bruce, In my opinion, yes the Kirby would be worth it, as long as you are not replacing the motor. The switch would be the most expensive part besides the motor that would need to be replaced. The switch costs USD 49.99, the cord is roughly $39.99, and the carbon brushes are $29.99. I can easily walk you through any of these repairs should you need help. Kirby's are great vacuum cleaners, that usually last 30+ years. Brand new these machines sell in the US for $1600 or more,
