Having problems with your Vacuums ?

I have an Electrolux Model G. I have to take the

\015 I have an Electrolux Model G. I have to take the cordwinder apart to fix an electrical problem. How do I lock the return spring so I don't loose the tension in it? Thanks!\015

Answers :

Wow an old but a goody.Electrolux rewinds of this age are like land mines. Be very cautious.
The G is similar to its cousin the model 89. In the 89 a service tech would remove the housing cover with the cord spool held secure and stationary stationary and the housing laying flat. Sometimes a clothes pin or small clamp on the outside of the cord housing.....
Once inside there would be a spool with the cord would on and that spool had both a flat metal spring half visible below the side of the spool and and an open center bearing race. Only half the spring would be exposed from above and a special clamp tool was used to reach in and clamp the spring before any parts were disturbed. You might get away with a set of long skinny needle nose pliers but you must not kink the spring by doing so. Then if removing the spool, you would invert the rewind over an ice cream pail to drop the loose bearings , or remove them with a magnetic screwdriver tip.
If your spring is damaged you will get one through Aerus Electrolux , originally Electrrolux US.
If your cord has given way and you are exceptionally careful, without removing the spool you can desolder the terminals on the bakelite spool inside, drill out the rivets holding the contact ring and shorten the cord . this is far easier than attempting to install a new cord .The next step would be to resolder the cord and re rivet the spool contact ring with a pop riveter and washers to secure the tabs cut out in the ring.
If you remove the entire cord you will have to clamp the spring so a snot to lose its unwound tension. This is VERY tricky. Best of luck . please post back to advise what happens.If you impatient, don't even consider this one, just find another G for parts and steal the rewind

I have an electrolux oxygen canister that's 4 yrs old and it just stop working. It just doesn't turn on and no lights display. I veryfied that the outlet works. I took it at my local Eletrolux store but they don't deal with this model. They told me that this model is made in Europe and they don't support it. Where can I take it to be looked at or do you have any ideas what the problem might be. Last time I used it it was working fine. Thanks, Rodi
