Bosch canister vac BSG81313. Took cover off to remove lots of hair, dirt etc from running without bag in place. Everything went back together OK, but cord reel spring went zip when cover was removed.

Took my Miele Solaris canister vac in for repair as it wouldn't turn on. The repairman said to come back the next day for the estimate. I called and he said I needed a new cord reel and it would be $189. I drove to his shop and said I would wait to do it later, that I wasn't ready to spend that much. When I came home, it started right up but has no power and doesn't sound right, the noise of the motor is real soft, not as loud as before. I have this terrible feeling that when we decided not to
