Having problems with your Miele Red Star Bagged Canister Vacuum ?

Miele Red Star model S314. Cord reel is stuck. About three feet of cord is out. The rest of cord is jammed inside machine? How do I get to where the cord reel is?


Answers :

It is actually simple when I tell you, Here we go...
\012
\012First, open the lid and take the bag, and hepa filter out of the machine.
\012
\012With a slot screwdriver, pry the hinges of the bag door out a little and take the bag door off.
\012
\012You should see one screw holding the black black panel, remove that. When that is out, you can pull the black panel off. It will give a little resistance to you, do not be afraid of breaking it, it will come off.
\012
\012Next you will see 4 or 5 screws down the holes there, remove all of them and the final remaining red piece will come off. When you pull this off, it will have both the cord rewinder and the motor assembly attached to it. It will be heavy becasue of the motor. Before you pull out the cord rewinder, just have a look at it closely and you may be able to just fix it without removing anything else.
\012
\012good luck with it.

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.
