Having problems with your Miele Red Star Bagged Canister Vacuum ?

Cord winder not working

\015 My vacuum would not turn on because the cord winder had slipped and the electrical connection was not complete. I took the winder apart and repositioned it and then it would turn on, but the cord did not wind all of the way up. When I re-wound the cord so that it was cocked to pull the cord all of the way in, but then the spring exploded out. I keep re-winding the spring but it keeps slipping. Have I lost a part or am I missing a step in my reassembly?\015

Answers :

Most times you will have to replace the cord rewind. Sometimes just the cord, but usually there is a problem with thr reel contacts. But now that the spring has unwound, you will have to replace it. You will need model number rather then Red Star.

We bought a new cord winder for our Electrolux 1205 Canister Vacuum cleaner and we are trying to install it is not turning on. We get it all connected but it doesn't turn on. Is there a reset button or some advise you can give me to get it working? I used a voltage detector to see if there was power running through the cord winder and there is.

My wife has a Revlon Rv051 curling iron .. has worked fine for several years but now it has stopped working. No response to pushing the ON switch (normally turns on a red LED).

Cord replacement I need to replace a damaged cord (the reel works). How do I get the top off so I can remove the back end? Once I get it off, will I be able to change the cord, or do I need to buy the whole reel assembly? (and thanks for the help - I love this site!)

I also have a Hoover upright and I need to replace the electrical cord. I have dimantled the back, where the tools are stored, and the hose. I still cannot find the screws or whatever, to get to the area behind the cord, so I can replace it. I think I will have to take off the bottom too. Has anyone out there tried to do this? It seems crazy. This machine works great so I hope I can also put it back together. Thanks for the help.
