Having problems with your Bissell PowerGroom Helix Rewind Bagless Upright Vacuum, 98N4 ?
Cord won't retract or pull out
\015 It seems that the cord has slipped behind the wheel that it wraps on. does the cover to the cord wheel come off? if so, how?\015
There is one screw, but I can't locate another. I can even see where it is jammed. If I can't do a simple repair on a cheap vaccuum, I won't buy Bissell ever again.

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.

My Kenmore 7520 canister vacuum has a problem with the retractable cord. It has jammed and does not come out or retract. It jammed half way through the retracting action. Cannot pull it out or retract. Would like to know how to open the canister to take a look for the problem. Thank you
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.

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.
Hello,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 ... Vacuums

The automatic cable rewind on my Morphy Richards pod vacuum cleaner keeps retracting. I'd rather it didn't work at all than be constantly pulling out the cord. Is there any way in to fix it or disable it?
