Having problems with your Vacuums ?

How can i disassemble my le2100 to replace the power switch?

Answers :

This procedure works on almost all Electrolux plastic body canister vacuums. Caution: Always be sure that your machine is unplugged from the electrical outlet before servicing.
Remove the hose from the front cover and pull the electric cord out 2 or 3 feet. Remove the paper bag. Place the vacuum upside down on a work bench with some kind of pad underneath. Open the bag door and pull the end of the soft plastic rail cover out slightly (on both sides) to expose the rigid plastic side rails underneath. If you look directly at the side rails from the front you will see that the ‘T’ shaped part of each rail slides into a channel that locks the top and bottom halves of the machine together. The rails have notches or barbs on the last half inch or so which keep the rails from sliding out. You will need to get these notches away from the channel by sliding a narrow flat blade screw driver in between the top of the ‘T’ and the channel. Just tap it in and leave it there while you pull the rails out with a pair of needle nose pliers. Next, take a look at the bag door hinges. They have a square hole in the center through which a small tab from the bag compartment pokes through. Take a larger flat blade screwdriver and carefully pry the edge of the hinge away from the tab. This will release the bottom section (which is really on top now of course).
\015\012If you remembered to pull out the two or three feet of cord before you started then you should now have enough slack so that you can lay the bottom section aside.
If you plan to do any electrical work be sure to mark the locations of the wire connections. Electrolux Service Centers are the only source of wiring diagrams and they don’t like to share.

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

Our dustbuster (dont' have model number with me-sorry) won't turn off when I pull back on the switch handle.

The power head of my DC 21 keeps cutting off as soon as I start moving the hose around. The only way to get it going again is to step on the main switch on the canister, then the whole cycle of off and on starts again. I have replaced the entire power head and tested the continuity of all the wires in the hose and they are good. The repair shop says the PCB is bad but can not get one. What can I do ?

Not much. my only suggestion is to dig through the internet and try and find that pcb it may take awhile but it would be worth a shot. if you dont think you can make the repair take it to repair shop with new pcb and let them do it. ... Dyson Genuine DC-21 "Stowaway" Spare HEPA Filter, Dyson

Power nozzle on E-series won't start when cold unless the red 'reset' button is pressed multiple times while also holding the trigger to 'warm it up'...this is w/the power nozzle off the floor - no restriction on it turning. Once it's been running and then turned off the button must be pressed w/the trigger to get it to run - again w/the nozzle off the floor. It also seems to shut off too easily while vacuuming.

I have a Hayden SuperVac 3600, almost 10 years old. The unit still runs, but now when I switch to the power nozzle, it doesn't have power to turn that.
