How do you replace switch on Epic 6500 vaccum

\015 How do you replace switch on Electrolux Epic 6500 vaccum cleaner\015

Answers :

You may need a ROCKER device for the switch, however before you go there determine if you can hear an audible click when depressing the switch, or if the switch just springs up and down with no click.
A click means a rocker is needed. No click, just springing up and down with an occasional click means the spring attached to the underside of the switch button is fatigued, you need the button and switch mechanism, same location but above the rocker.
Also post the issue. If the lights are on and the vac won't start or stop, the switch is the problem area. If it starts and shuts off with the bag full light on it is more likely the control valve. If no lights come on your problem is in the cord or rewind and could be a failed rewind spool.
The best and genuine switch parts are best found only at an AERUS Elctrolux store
Look for my post from earlier today and you will have full instructions on opening and checking the control valve and the entire unit.

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,

On-off switch My problem is finding a source for an on-off switch for an electrolux vacuum sweeper model 2100. I have replaced the broken toggle and now the sweeper turns on but only as long as the outside button is depressed. It appears that the on-off switch itself is broken as the switch does not ''hold'' when the toggle is activated. It seems to return to it's ''off'' setting as soon as the toggle is released. What ''holds'' the switch in its ''on'' position? Does it depend only on the on-

My Electrolux Epic 6500 SR will not turn off by pressing on the switch button. I took it apart and removed the switch assy.
