Power cord won't retract on anaerus 5500 vacuum cleaner


Answers :

What you can do is take out the six hex screws on the bottom of the machine while on it's back. When all the screws are out, flip the machine back over, making sure you don't lose any of the screws. From there, open the bag cover and leave it open. Remove the cord release button. (The big rectangular button near the rear of the machine. Usually a firm pull up will get that thing out without incident.) Grasp the handle with one hand and hold the machine steady with the other. With a firm pull, pull upwards. This should seperate the chassis from the main cover.

\015\012With the machine guts exposed, place the main cover on the side for now. Now, this next part you can do one of two ways. You can either leave the cordwinder wires attached, (there's only 2 connected wires to the cordwinder, the white and black. Black is on the inside prong while the white is on the outside) or you can take the wires off. I find it easier to disconnect the wires.
\015\012
\015\012Now, remove the cordwinder from it's place, making sure you take note of how the cordwinder rests in the groove from the motor. From there you can rewind your cord fully. Once this is complete, continue winding the cord while holding the cord in place. Take note of the spring. Make sure you are winding in the direction that is TIGHTENING the spring. Make sure you don't overtighten as the center plastic piece will surely snap due to the overtension. This may take a few tries, but be patient. Once you have met your estimated tension needed, replace the cordwinder, put the cover back on WITHOUT SCREWING IT BACK IN PLACE and replace the cord rewind button.
\015\012
\015\012 Replace the large cord release button and pull your cord out at least halfway. Hit your Cord rewind button. If your cord rewinds fully, congratulations, you got it in one try. Replace the screws and you are finished. If not, re-open the machine and continue rewinding the cord in the direction that TIGHTENS the spring with emphasis on overtightening. Once you break that center plastic prong, you need to buy a new cordwinder, so emphasize patience. If you're getting frustrated, go take a break and come back. Repeat until the cord winds fully, replace all the screws and you are finished.

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.

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.
