This can be a complex undertaking, so I highly recommend taking it to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store for repair. I've seen many disassembled machines come in to the shop because the owner couldn't figure out how to put it back together. Any misplaced wires during reassembly can result in nonworking vacuum, shock and even fire hazard.
Taking it to the shop may cost more, but I believe is less expensive in the long run. They'll do it right.

Following old directions found online I opened an Electrolux Ambassador III to fix the cord winder. When reassembling, I found a loose white wire. Where should it be reconnected?


A white wire is part of the power wiring (neutral), but if the machine runs ok, it may be a left-over from previous work or original manufacturing. If the machine does not run now, then look obvious bare connectors to reinstall it. Hope this helps!

ElectroLex Cannister model C101J Cord won't retract, trying to remove hard plastc side strips. Appears to be 'one-way' lock in 'T' channel - suggestions unlock?


Use a screwdriver to pry on the top or bottom of REAR cover. I t is held by 4 prongs that fit into 4 holes in tabs. It took a little effort to do mine but it came off. From there you can access retractor mechanism.

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.

Most cord reels have a stop on it, it is a rubber wheel and when dust gets on the wheel, they won't always stop the reel. It would have to be opend up to get to the cord reel, then you could clean it out.

Electrolux Lux 7000 retractable power cord


The trim pieces along the sides just pull off seperating the two housings. The back portion where the retract drum is is held by two plastic tangs on top inside. use a screwdriver to pry the ring down to dislodge the tangs. the bottom part will lift off. remove the front part using two screws just below the hinge. the retract has a long coil spring wound around a free spinning hub. there are two "tangs" inside that engage a ratchet-pawl assembly. you'll need to rotate the drum to rewind the spring onto its hub.
