Having problems with your Bissell Vacuums ?
Cord won't retract or pull out. It is out about half way.
- This is a common problem with retractable cords. Now because yours is not all the way pulled out you may be able to get it to go back in by giving it a quick **** on the cord. Not a long pull , but a quick tug! and it may release the jam. If not it will need to come apart and fixed. I will need the make and model in order to give you step by step instructions on this. Bissell makes many different makes and models and they are all slightly different from one another. so if this works for you great, if not write back with the make and model and I will give you step by step instructions on how to do this.

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.

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?
