Customer Question

I have vacuum model 1UV300 8/00. The controls in handle do not work. Batteries are good. All connections good. Filters cleaned. Using power button turns vacuum on, but the handle controls still do not work, so unable to toggle from carpet to floor, etc.

Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset I am just one of the techs on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can and I just picked up your question now.

The switch in the handle control has gone bad as many of them did, the issue is they no longer sell the handle kit. It is part #AED72911901 if you can find it on ebay possibly. Otherwise you will not be able to fix it. Sorry for the news please do not kill the messenger thanks.
