Having problems with your Tristar Vacuums ?
My friend has a Tristar MG1 vacuum. The cord was
\015 My friend has a Tristar MG1 vacuum. The cord was chewed by her dogs. I repaired the cord, matching black to black and white to white. It now sparks and trips the circuit breaker. I don't understand. I used wire nuts and electrical tape. I cut the chewed portion out so there would not be any shorts. Could this problem be inside the vacuum that we don't know about or is there something else I need to know. Thanks, kat\015
Chances are that there is the tiniest fray of one of the wires touching somewhere. Since you have already made a good repair with nuts and tape, feel the length of the cord for other bite marks where a puncture might short the cords. If you find such a site, **** the sheath lengthwise, tape the wires and replace them in the sheath, then tape the sheath closed.

Miele vacuum Sometimes when I hit the auto roll up cord button or even move the cord, the power vacuum goes off. I move the cord again and it comes back on. I took it apart and looked at the connection from the cord to the auto roller. These are the electrical slip on type connections and are still in good shape. There are no bends in the cord. I air dusted everthing inside, put it together (with no extra parts!). Good news..it powered up so I did not break it, but it still has the same problem.
Bosch canister vac BSG81313. Took cover off to remove lots of hair, dirt etc from running without bag in place. Everything went back together OK, but cord reel spring went zip when cover was removed. How do I rewind the spring so there is tension when the cord is pulled out ? Wound cord back onto reel, but reel just clicks ever revolution etc...no tension when cord is pulled out of vac. Bob
The spring inside the hub of the cord wheel has escaped from the locking tab. You must completely dismantle the vacuum to access the cord wheel - take it out, reattach the spring and reassemble the unit. All you need is a phillips screwdriver, a pai ... Vacuums

I have a hoover upright bagless - turbo power 6500 The cord has been run over and I just noticed white stuff on the cord where it is tattered. My husband said he saw it 6 months ago and never said anything! Anyway, what is that white stuff in the cord? Is it dangerous in any way? Is it insulation? What is that usually made of? Just concerned since the cord is dragged over the floor and my little boy constantly has his hands and face on the floor. Thanks. Worried mom
It can be potentially dangerous. What you see is the cord insulation, if you move that a little you can see the power wires. They are coated and cannot hurt you if not damaged. If i were you i would wrap it in electrical tape or best thing would to ... Hoover U6616-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum
How to wind cord onto spring loaded retractable cord reel for a Kenmore canister vacuum. There is a metal 'U' shaped, spring loaded, piece that fits over the outer aspect of the wheel.

Meile Solaris. Power cord connection faulty. Unit powers on/off when cord is being retracted/pulled out. Maybe a break in wire close to connection point in vacuum. Or, the connection point itself is loose? The problem likely resulted from trying to use vacuum at furthest extent of cord.

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

I've lost my cord for my West Bend vintage Flavo-matic 8-cup 3280E percolator coffee maker. It does not take the standard 1/2" wide cord replacements which I've tried. The prongs look more like they're 3/4" wide. Would anyone be able to recommend an online store that may have this dimension of cord (and will ship to Canada)?
