First remove the bag and the filter, then open the top lid as far back as possible, and then push it a little further. It will make a horrible crunching noise as if it's broken, (which it isn't,) and will then lift free of the body. (If you're afraid to do this you can use a flat-head screwdriver to pry the tabs free by the hinges, but be gentle so you don't snap them.) Remove the screws from the front of the black assembly on the top, (where the on/off switch and power controls are located,) and lift it free. It may also make a horrible snapping sound, but it's ok. Then remove the five or so screws from the main body (in the colored plastic,) and flip the machine upside-down. You can then lift the bottom of the machine free and access the motor and cord reel from there. Reassembly is a reverse of this process, except when putting the main bag chamber lid back on you will need to use a screwdriver to gently hold the tabs out of the way when putting the hinges back on.

Polaris 9300 sport pool cleaner. the wires pulled free from the plug into the power supply. not sure which wire goes where. There are 3 red black and brown. 4 holes for them to go back into.


Without a wiring diagram it will need either model knowledge or some educated guesswork aided by a multimeter and carefully studying the internal wiring of the power supply.
Without a great deal of additional description I can't help further other than to suggest you contact the retailer who sold the appliance.

Good luck!

I opened the vacuum,i checked the cord and it is in the correct form,not tangle etc..still doesn't work after pluging it the wall out let..help


Possibly a broken wire. It is common for the flexible cable to break at the 3 pin plug end from constantly pulling the cord / plug out of the socket or if its a retractible cord, they get broken where the cord enters the machine rewinder. this happens when the cord is pulled out to its maximum length all the time and eventually cuts through the cord. I would try a new 3 pin plug first.

Retractable cord stuck


I wonder if there is a tangle in the cord. It could have also come off the wheel inside. Open the vacuum to see if you can untangle the wire and put it back on the wheel.

Hi there,

Sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC07 Animal. From what you've described, it sounds as if the wand has been replaced on the cleaner without the hose being retracted. To remove the wand from the machine, hold the cleaner securely in place by placing one foot on the cleaner head, then pull the wand up forcefully whilst holding the purple quick-draw hose release (located above the on/off switch) down. Make sure you are not leaning over the top of the wand as you do this.

Once you've freed the wand from the cleaner, make sure you retract the wand before replacing it on the cleaner again. Hold down the hose release button on the hose cuff as you retract the wand inside the hose.

You might find it useful to refer to the user guide supplied with the cleaner - in case you don't have this to hand, you can download a copy here:

Our tractable cord is half-way stuck and will not retract and its all tangled inside and you cant pull it to use it


The only thing you can do is you must open it by removing the screws and take it apart your self, once open it should be apparent what to do, or take it in for the repair.

You will need to pull the roller out and clean it. I think some of the strings are tangle up at the end of this roller. (Most rollers will come apart at the end for cleaning.) Make sure that the strings are not tangle up on the belt pulley as well. I hope this will help you.

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 Not 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 cloth and some furniture polish. This will clean the cord and add some resistance to the retractor that could minimise the cord flowing back into the vacuum.

Nilfisk king 540: The cable is stuck. I can´t take it out


Tools required: Haxalobular screwdriver (Torx or 'Star'), Strong hands/fingers, flathead screwdriver.

Possible hazards: sharp edges (metal plastic), bacteria enriched dust/dirt.

Notice the black ring/skirt near the bottom of the unit...sit on the vacuum cleaner, and pull very firmly at the ring, which will begin to click and pull upwards, rotate around the unit pulling the ring up until the whole ring comes off and you can pull it off over the top of the unit.

Now, there will be a white plastic ring revealed around the unit, using a Flat Head screwdriver to pry the ring out of the grooves it sits in (pull it off towards the bottom of the unit as opposed to the intial black ring coming off upwards).

Now take the handle of the unit and give a firm **** upwards, the whole encasement will slide off in your hand.

You will now see the spring loaded cord retracter. The problem here is that the spring has become too losely wound back onto the larger spindle, or it is dirty.

Firstly pull the entire power cord through the outer shell that you removed (you will need to unscrew and remove the black facade that the cord goes through otherwise the head of the cord wont go through).

Then take the plastic cirlce cover off the smaller spindle (carefully as the wound tin spring could pounce).

Now you need to manually turn the larger wheel clockwise until it has no coil left on it, and the smaller coil now is full.

While winding, dont let the powercord wind back onto the wheel, let it sit to the side (there will be a bit of tangle which will go back to normal when we finish winding back the other way).

Once it is fully loaded onto the smaller coil, wind it back on to the larger coil again, but make sure it's loading on 'tight'. You can ensure this by keeping some pressure on the smaller spindle while winding (be carefull because the coil edge is sharp). Once the smaller coil is basically gone and there is just a small curved end of the coil, put the small spindle back on making the curved coil wrap around it.

Wind some coil back onto the smaller spindle so there is atleast one full ring plus a small overlap, around the spindle, or it may come off. Also, make sure that where the cord is coming out of the larger spindle, is pointing towards where it goes out the back of the vacuum cleaner, so that when you pull the cable it wont wind the wheel at all, otherwise it may wind some coil off the smaller spindle.

Proceed to put the unit back together, but before putting the white and black rings back on, test the retract button. I noticed the first attempt to put it back together that the external button had not lined up with the internal mechanism and it wouldnt retract, i had to open it again.

All done, it should now retract, but it will never be as strong as the day you bought it, but atleast you dont have to have the cord hanging round. Hope this helps.
