Pwr cord rewind reel

\015 The power cord has jumped the cord rewinder reel and is stuck. I have removed 4 screws on the top of the vac (inside the bag cover door) but the unit will not come apart to gain access to the reel. Any sugestions? It is a hoover canister Vac. model S1361\015

Answers :

You have to pop the grey button off for the cord rewind. There is one more screw under there. You have to be very careful, because you can break one of the tabs that hold the button on. In fact, it is almost a garuntee. There are three tabs that stick off the button that hold it in place on the orange hood. There's a long tab about 3/4 inch long on the inside corner of the button you need to be careful of. Good luck!
I had the same problem and was able to fix it with your suggestions. I would add when you attempt to remove the grey button, I had the most success (I had to do it twice) by prying the side of the button farthest from the long tab. That is the end of the button closest to the top of the machine. Also be careful that the wind up reel is correctly reinstalled with the lever on the reel directly aligned with the grey button so it can press it to rewind the reel. I found one of the wires to the reel very lose and had to tighten the spade female connector end so it would fit tightly. Also, remember to install the black rubber gasket around the bag opening before tightening the four screws around that areal

I have the Hoover Deluxe Elite Rewind with the 24 ft cord reel. I can't seem to find the instructions or a model # exactly for it. The vacuum is just over a month old but when I turn it on now it's not sucking at the bottom and the hose and everything else appears to be attached so I don't know why it's not working.

I want to open a Hoover S3825 Elite Cyclonic Vacuum to see if I can repair or replace the cord reel assembly. Currently the reel slowly draws the cord back into the canister once it is pulled out.
