Having problems with your Hoover Powermax S3601 Bagged Canister Vacuum ?
S3601 Power Cord Mainspring Has NO Tension.
\015 I have a Hoover Powermax S3601 and for the past few months the power cord just wont retract. It does for a few seconds and stops, all the way down the line. I opened it up and nothing seems to be wrong. I even put some WD-40 to make sure its not just the mainspring being rusty. \015\012Can anyone tell me either what the problem MAY be, OR how to ADD tension to the mainspring ( the coil that turns the power cord cable holder ). \015\012\015\012Thanks!\015

Miele vacuum Sometimes when I hit the auto roll up cord button or even move the cord, the power vacuum goes off. I move the cord again and it comes back on. I took it apart and looked at the connection from the cord to the auto roller. These are the electrical slip on type connections and are still in good shape. There are no bends in the cord. I air dusted everthing inside, put it together (with no extra parts!). Good news..it powered up so I did not break it, but it still has the same problem.

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 have a hoover upright bagless - turbo power 6500 The cord has been run over and I just noticed white stuff on the cord where it is tattered. My husband said he saw it 6 months ago and never said anything! Anyway, what is that white stuff in the cord? Is it dangerous in any way? Is it insulation? What is that usually made of? Just concerned since the cord is dragged over the floor and my little boy constantly has his hands and face on the floor. Thanks. Worried mom
