Think cleaning lady pulled too hard on cord...now no power, doesn't turn on

Hoover UH70120 WindTunnel TSeries problems with the cord. im a tech savy guy and have been trying to fix a cord after it was pulled to far out and now wont auto retract, but just cant find a way to pull the cord rewind mechanism out to work on it. Any advice

You will probably have to replace the cord winding mechanism. I have never had any luck trying to repair one. Cord retracters are great when they work but it seems like they always go bad before too long. On many units you can't even replace the cord ...

The power cord is stuck part way out - it seems to have slipped over the edge of the reel inside the machine, so it won't pull out and it won't retract. Pulling hard does no good.

Hello,Yes, pulling hard is not a good idea. You need to use techniques to get it out.Get a flat Phillips screw driver, use it to bring it out. Or use a screw drive to disassemble the part that that went inside the machine. If ... Vacuums

I have an aerus electrolux guardian canister vacuum. The cord was damaged but the retraction winder is still fine. I have ordered a replacement cord but I have no idea how to remove the old cord and install the new one. Am I over my head?

The winder is activated by a coil spring located in a drum. The drum transmits the power from the wire with 2 circular contacts. To replace the cable you must dismantle the case to access the drum, take the spring pressure out carefully as to not let ... Vacuums

Cord/recoll/turn on The miele white star vacuum will only start if I pull out the cord very fast and hard. I assume there a relation between the cord extraction and the power switch. What is it and how do i fix it? Drew

This is a tricky problem and if your are not mechanically skilled can destroy your cord reel. Basically the reel spring has collapsed inside and you need to install two washers to help push the contacts back into place. Take the entire unit apart and ... Miele S514 Solaris Bagged Canister Vacuum

Hey guys ! I have (or my wife has) A KENMORE whispertone 116. When my wife is cleaning with it it will suddenly stops.She then wiggles/pulls on the cord and it starts again and the stops.I pulled the cord all the way out and it is fine.So its inside.I dont relish the thought of playing with that reel but thats probably where the problem is (you think ??) My first challenge is how to seperate thw tp and bottem half peices???

It definitely sounds like the cord winder is the problem. I can tell you how to take the machine apart, but it's just about impossible to rebuild that winder. When you take the winder apart the spring blows apart, and it's very dangerous. I won't be ... Vacuums

I only know this model as the Classic, but the colour of the canister in the photo is the same. The machine will not turn on, but when I retract and pull on the cord, the power light comes on briefly. Is there a short? I lent the vacuum to my daughter and perhaps she was rough with the cord.

The automatic cable rewind on my Morphy Richards pod vacuum cleaner keeps retracting. I'd rather it didn't work at all than be constantly pulling out the cord. Is there any way in to fix it or disable it?

Hi\015\012Not really. It means that the cord has been pulled roughly when its been plugged in and the retracter is getting weaker to hold the cord that has been pulled out. Generally though wipe the entire cord from the end of the machine with a dry ... Miele S251i Plus Bagged Canister Vacuum

My dyson animal is hard to push on carpet - the beater bar is still operational. When I turn off the beater bar and run the vacuum on hardwood the beater bar stops moving, but it still ''rolls'' on the hardwood - it doesn't pull up like it used to. It also seems to not be picking up as well as it used to, although no blockages are present and the filter is clean.

I have a hoover all terrain cleaning for carpets and hard floors and the Brushes will not rotate. I have replaced the filter on the bottom which is recommended by hoover and the brushes still wont rotate. Please advise

I assume this unit has no mechanism to turn the brush but instead using the air flow to activate the brush, in this instance it could be that there is dirt which is caught up in the brush which is stopping the rotation.A nice good clean and make sure ... Hoover Vacuums

Rule 1800 Pool Cover Pump With Leaf Protector 110v not running. Pump had a partially severed electrical cord which I repaired. I have cleaned out the pump for debris (took off outer parts). I still get nothing when I plug it in. Impeller is somewhat hard to turn but I can find nothing impeding it. Thoughts?
