Having problems with your Vacuums ?

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.

Answers :


Yes, pulling hard is not a good idea. You need to use techniques to get it out.

Get a flat Phillips screw driver, use it to bring it out. Or use a screw drive to disassemble the part that that went inside the machine. If that's not an easy task, then you might disassemble the whole unit so that it can be renove easily.

But you still need to apply some force to bring out the stuck power cord, don't apply too much force, but some force is needs.

You can send me the picture of the stuck part, so that I can see what I am dealing with if the above is not helpful.

Good luck.

My daughter pulled to hard on the ceiling fan pulling out the chain. i have taken it off and apart, nothing appears to be broken but im trying to figure out how to put it together so it retracks, i assume it has something to do with the tension of the small spring inside of it, but not sure how to put it back together im wondering if there is a internal diagram of this ???

Currently my dyson does not work when in the upright position. When I pull the handle back, it will run, but the suction is not very good at all. I tried washing the filter, but that didn't work.

I have a Eureka Upright vacuum (4800 Series). When I try to start it by turning the switch on, it wont. For few days, I was able to get around this problem by repeatedly turning the switch on and off until it turned on but that does not work any more. Could it be something related to the switch it self or the power cable. My wife mentioned that one of my kids might have pulled the power cable too hard (at the back of the vacuum). Any help to solve this problem will be very much appreciated. Tha

Poor Suction Heya! So I just picked up a used Dyson, but when I vacuum with it, the suction is pretty weak and it spits all kinds of stuff out the back and into my feet. When I pull the hose I have good suction, but in regular mode it hardly picks up anything. The brushes are spinning, and it eventually will clean an area if I go over it again and again. Maybe a clog somewhere? Please tell me that Dysons have better suction than my $50 Dirt Devil! Thanks!
