How much will it cost to fix the on/off switch on an upright vacuum?

I am trying to decide if it is worth it to fix the vacuum.

The replacement switch is cheap - less than five dollars. But the repair shop rates often exceed $75 per hour. Get a written estimate and don't spend more than $150.00

When I broke the on /off switch on my vacuum I brought to an appliance repair shop. The cost to fix the switch was only 12 dollars. The repair was done in one day and I picked my vacuum up the following day. I have'nt had a problem with the repair for two years now.

Having an on/off switch can vary in price. It can be as little as twenty dollars and as much as fifty depending upon the issue.

For the Kirby, the on/off switch is approximately 40 dollars, but it is intended to last a long time, so therefore, it would be worth it to fix the vacuum.

Depending on the brand of vaccum cleaner the cost for fixing the on/off switch my range from about $4. 00 for some Hoover Models to $35. 00 for Kirby Models.

Well it really depends on the brand of vacuum you are replacing. After you have tested the circuit to be sure there are no lose wires and that the switch is getting power the actual cost should not be much. Contact your brands website.

To find out how much it will cost to fix a switch on an upright vacuum you need to ask a repair man, I think it would be worth it if it was an expensive vacuum, but if it is a cheap one just replace it.

If you are capable of doing the repair yourself, you can probably get a switch for around $5-$7. If you want a shop to fix it, expect to pay around $20 for labor.
