Having problems with your Kenmore Vacuums ?

Kenmore Whispertone 12 Cord Retractor Replace or Retension ?

\015 I see the answer to how to get to the cord retractor (removing the 4 clips on the pedal) but my question is this: The spring that pulls the cord into the machine doesn't have any tension once it gets about 1/2 way through retracting the cord.Can the spring be "re-tensioned" --tightened up or can it be replaced? Has anyone run into this problem and fixed it?Thanks\015

A family member recently gave me their Kenmore Vacuum Cleaner (model 35821) and I did not notice that the power cord was missing at first. I tried to look closely at the manual online to see if this was something I would be able to purchase or if the vacuum was no longer any good.
