Having problems with your Vacuums ?

I have an Easy-Flo central vac unit. The handle on the electric hose has a switch on the handle. With the switch on ''O'' in the center, it's off. On the left, is the ''I'' position. The vacuum runs but the power brush doesn't. On the right is the ''II'' position. The switch won't flip that way. It feels stuck. It feels as if there is something underneath of it that won't let it push that direction. I have the switch out of the handle, but I can't seem to get the actual black casing around the


Answers :

Switches are not usually designed to be dissembled.
I would strongly suggest that you dont take the switch apart. you are better off getting a new one. then if you feel like it you can take the old switch apart and if it dosnt work you still have a new switch. if you decide to dissemble the old switch be vary careful there are very small parts in there that will fall out. and most of the time the casing will crack when you pry it apart.



Good luck

You can't get that apart. I repair the switches on these hoses a lot. The only way to fix it is to just get a new switch and replace it. You can get a replacement switch here:

I have a Eureka Upright vacuum (4800 Series). When I try to start it by turning the switch on, it wont.
