Having problems with your Electrolux Lux 7000 Bagged Canister Vacuum ?

Retractable power cord

\015 The power cord no longer retracts. How do I take the machine apart to get at and fix the power cord so that it will retract?\015\012\015\012I posted this problem earlier and on August 20 received this response from Buffalo 12980:\015\012\015\012"The trim pieces along the sides just pull off separating the two housings. The back portion where the retract drum is is held by two plastic tangs on top inside. Use a screwdriver to pry the ring down to dislodge the tangs. The bottom part will lift off. Remove the front part using two screws just below the hinge. The retract has a long coil spring wound around a free spinning hub.\015\012There are two "tangs" inside that engage a ratchet-pawl assembly. You'll need to rotate the drum to rewind the spring onto its hub."\015\012\015\012My problem is that I cannot get past the first step. I am able to pull off the rubber bumpers but not the bumper tracks. I assume that the bumper tracks are what is meant by "the trim pieces." \015\012\015\012The tracks are held in place by the back section of the machine, where the power cord is meant to be housed. How do I remove the back section?\015\012\015\012Any additional help you can provide will be much appreciated.\015\012\015\012Thanks again.\015\012\015\012Tyaq\015

JUST LIFT OFF THE TOP HALF. CAREFULLY REACH IN FROM THE LEFT SIDE AND DISCONNECT THE CLEAR PLASTIC HOSE THAT IS ATTACHED TO THE "DIAL" ON TOP OF THE MACHINE. THEN LAY THE TOP HALF OF THE MACHINE TO THE RIGHT. DON'T DISCONNECT ANY WIRES. YOU'LL HAVE TO HAVE A NEW CORD WINDER (LOOK ON E-BAY). THE MOTOR AND CORD WINDER ARE ATTACHED TO EACH OTHER BY WIRES AND CAN BE LIFTED OUT OF THE CANISTER.EVERYTHING YOU DO JUST REMEMBER THAT ALL OF THESE PARTS ARE ATTACHED TO EACH OTHER BY WIRES. THE ONLY WIRES YOU'LL NEED TO DISCONNECT ARE THE ONES ATTACHED TO THE CORD WINDER ASSEMBLY. THEY JUST PULL OFF, NO TOOLS ARE NEEDED.
\015\012QUITE FRANKLY THIS IS A ROYAL PAIN AND YOU'LL PROBABLY WISH YOU TOOK IT TO A REPAIR (AERUS/ELECTROLUX) SHOP. IF YOU DECIDE TO DO IT YOUR SELF TAKE PICTURES OF EVERY STEP...'CAUSE YA GOTTA PUT IT ALL BACK TOGETHER.
\015\012GOOD LUCK!
Those trim pieces SLIDE off by opening the front where the bag goes, Take a pair of pliers and slide them out. You might have to use a screwdriver to help initiate the grabbing of the slide.

I just purchased a Sebo Airbelt D canister vacuum. I plugged it in and used it for ten seconds then turned it off, retracted the power cord and now cannot get the power cord out of the machine. Did I not spend enough money to get a quality product? Does anyone have any idea how to get the power cord out without breaking the machine?

No power. I was getting intermittent power with my miele s558 midsize canister, but it was predicated with me fiddling with the retractable cord to get it to come on and then not move the canister while I was vacuuming. Now I can get no power. I have taken it apart and can see no issues with connectors, cord, casings, etc. It all looks fine. It is about 5 years old and I have had no problems with it.
