Hoover Windtunnel Tseries cord pulled out too
\015 Hoover Windtunnel Tseries cord pulled out too much and won't rewind. I think I know how to fix it, but I need to know how to dismantle the vacuum...at least the clear plastic where you can view the cord...if it were inside...lol. i have the tunnel and filter removed, plus the top screws "supposedly" holding the clear plastic part (labeled cord rewind) in place.\015
In the case of where you have decided to "fix" it yourself the best thing is to make small drawings of what goes where as you take things apart. Lay out a white towel and put all the parts on it in the order you removed them. To keep from loosing screws you can screw them back in their holes you took them out of, or lay them in order next to the part you took off. Sometimes there may be longer screws. On your drawings indicate where they go. You don't have to be an artist, just as long as you can understand what you've drawn. As far as the switch is concerned it's either a safety feature or there is a wire pulled part way out and is pushed or pulled back into place when you lean the handle back. Now, understand that there are flat metal "clock" springs that are wound up tight on the part the end is attached to. Whatever you do pay close attention to what is going on just as you begin to open the housing up that holds the cord. If the clock spring is attached to something that may come loose as you pull it apart, it's liable to come off of the winding mechanism and completely unwind suddenly. I've had this happen before. And you never know how many times to wind it up in order for it to be able to pull the cord back in the housing quickly like it did when it was working.

Hoover UH70120 WindTunnel TSeries problems with the cord. im a tech savy guy and have been trying to fix a cord after it was pulled to far out and now wont auto retract, but just cant find a way to pull the cord rewind mechanism out to work on it. Any advice
You will probably have to replace the cord winding mechanism. I have never had any luck trying to repair one. Cord retracters are great when they work but it seems like they always go bad before too long. On many units you can't even replace the cord ...

The spring inside the hub of the cord wheel has escaped from the locking tab. You must completely dismantle the vacuum to access the cord wheel - take it out, reattach the spring and reassemble the unit. All you need is a phillips screwdriver, a pai ... Vacuums

I want to open a Hoover S3825 Elite Cyclonic Vacuum to see if I can repair or replace the cord reel assembly. Currently the reel slowly draws the cord back into the canister once it is pulled out. I found the mounting screws under the rear wheels once I removed the hub but I do not know how to remove the rear wheels, everything is plastic. The front screws are under the front caster wheels and I think I need to take a screwdriver and pry off the little cylinder wheel to get to them by rotating
Lately, my Kirby Ultimate G has been acting funny. When I push it forward, it's fine, but when I pull it backward on the carpet, the light on the front flickers and the power flutters off an on. I thought it might be the rollers, so tonight I turned the machine over and pulled out the hair that was wrapped around the roller. However, that did not fix the problem. I should probably backtrack a little bit. In the past, I have had problems with the vacuum running over its own power cord.
The cord will need to be replaced with a cord made for the machine, as it has a non-standard plug. The cord cover is held in place with a # 20 Torx screw. Remove the screw and push the cover gently from behind to unlatch it. The handle must also be r ... Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum

It definitely sounds like the cord winder is the problem. I can tell you how to take the machine apart, but it's just about impossible to rebuild that winder. When you take the winder apart the spring blows apart, and it's very dangerous. I won't be ... Vacuums
I only know this model as the Classic, but the colour of the canister in the photo is the same. The machine will not turn on, but when I retract and pull on the cord, the power light comes on briefly. Is there a short? I lent the vacuum to my daughter and perhaps she was rough with the cord.

I have an earlier model Weed Eater blower/vac 1925. the starter cord pulled completely out of the hub.

The power cord is stuck part way out - it seems to have slipped over the edge of the reel inside the machine, so it won't pull out and it won't retract. Pulling hard does no good.
