Electrolux Discovery III

The carpet sweeper will not operate on our Electrolux Discovery III. The suction only option works. When the switch is moved down to the sweeper option (3rd) the motor cuts off. I have cleaned out the sweeper and tried resetting.

Welcome to the forums.

Which motor cuts off ? The main suction motor ?

The main motor cuts off when moving switch to sweeper option. Neither motor operates.

It would appear that the multi-postion power switch is defective. If yours uses the rocker type then the replacement is shown in the link below.

Then it would use the alternate slide switch in the link below.
