There is a red button on the head of your power nozzle. It is the reset button. Try hitting it and see if that helps.

SOURCE: lux 5000 vacuum cord will not rewind it is pulled all the way out need to disassemble

This rewind is not easy to work on, I rewound my Eureka with much persistance. The vacuum shop didn't want to tackle this.
It's easy to cut your fingers on the spring.

SOURCE: How do I open the canister of the Aerus Electrolux

Hi there,

This will not be difficult to open, however, inside may scare you.

Remove your hepa filter cartridge (if you have one)
turn the machine over.
Undo the 6-8 screws there and pull the bottom off.
you should see everything there. If you are careful, just remove the old rewinder, and replace with the new one.

Good luck.
Mark

How to take cordwinder out of aerus 7000 power cord doesnt retract. so how do i get into the canister where the cordwinder is?


Set the vacuum on the table, bench, etc. on it's wheels, remove the bag and leave the compartment lid open. All internal components are accessed by removing the two rubber side bumpers on either side of the vacuum. This is done by sliding a wide blade screwdriver at the back of the bumper in between the bumper and the plastic rear of the vac and tapping forward with a rubber mallot. Just be careful.
After removing the two rubber side bumpers, turn vacuum over on it's back and pull the bottom off but only after pulling about 2 feet of the retractable cord out for clearance. You may then access the cordwinder to replace. I have replacement cordwinders available for you.

Disassebiling the unit body


It is fairly simple to get the unit apart, but putting the unit back together properly does require some mechanical expertise.

The unit is held together by the two side rails or "bumpers". Once these are removed, the unit will split apart in two halves.

  1. Ensure the unit is unplugged.
  2. Open the bag door, and remove the bag.
  3. With the bag door open, peel about one inch or so of the rubber from each of the side rails back
  4. Insert a tiny flat head screwdriver into the T shaped channel the side rail sits in and lightly tap it in about 3/4" or so
  5. Pull the side rail out using a needle nose pliers. Repeat for the other side.
Once you have the side rails removed, your Electrolux 7000 unit is easiest to disassemble and reassemble if laying on its top. Remove the bottom half of the housing first.

Here is a quick video of the disassembly.

I would recommend taking the unit to an Aerus dealer or a local professional repair shop for any major repairs.

Need to open the canister to get to the cord assembly of my Electrolux Lux 5000


Why do you need to get to the cord assembly?
If the cord will not retract, tilt the vacuum to about a 45 degree angle and gently tug and release cord. It will usually retract.
Due to problems ensuing from untrained persons attempting to reassemble the vacuum and having to take it to the shop anyway, I recommend not taking it apart.
If the above isn't the problem, please take it to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store for repair.

The retractable cord is all the way out and won't go back into the machine! How do we get the machine apart to fix this problem?


You shouldn't have to. Simply tilt the machine to 45 degree angle and gently tug and release the cord. From my own experience, this almost always works. It's possible it's due to a broken part, but not likely.
Also, the vacuum should still be under warranty. If it's disassembled by anyone other than an authorized Aerus Electrolux servich tech, the warranty is voided.

How do i get in to the back of my vacuum 7000 to repair my cord retractor. thank you Dan


The back won't come off until the top and bottom of the case are separated. This is a job that should only be done by an authorized Aerus Electrolux service tech. You may be try to save money by doing it yourself, but it's not worth the potential problems that could lead to. Improper reassembly can and often does result in more being spent in the long run.
Since disassembly of Aerus and pre-Aerus Electrolux vacuums is proprietary information, it shouldn't be posted on the web.
I know this isn't helpful, but it's the best I can do.

How do I repair my Electrolux Lux 9000 cannister electrical cord retraction? It was pulled out as far as it would go and now it doesn't retract.


First, try standing vacuum on it's back end. Gently pull on cord and release. Try this a few times.
If this doesn't work, you'll need to take it to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store and let the service tech repair it. Although it's relatively easy to disassemble, reassembling correctly is trickier. I've had several machines come into the shop disassembled because the owner couldn't figure out how to put it together again.
Also, when taking the cord rewinder apart, there's a risk of breaking tabs that hold it together.

How do i open the housing of an electrolux ambassador model #c101j to fix cord recoil


This can be a complex undertaking, so I highly recommend taking it to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store for repair. I've seen many disassembled machines come in to the shop because the owner couldn't figure out how to put it back together. Any misplaced wires during reassembly can result in nonworking vacuum, shock and even fire hazard.
Taking it to the shop may cost more, but I believe is less expensive in the long run. They'll do it right.

I want to open the cannister to work on the cord rewinder but I don't want to force it and I am unable to locate/see how the back latches work.


This should really be done by an authorized Aerus Electrolux servich technician. I've seen quite a few dismantled machines come into the shop because the owner couldn't figure out how to put it back together properly. And the cordwinder can be even more difficult. The service techs really don't like to put together a dismantled machine.
There are no back latches.

However, to open the canister:
You will need a flathead screwdrive and a hammer.
1. Remove bag
2. Lay on one side, with bag door open all the way
3. Push tip of screwdriver in the back of side rubber strip.
4. Use hammer to hit screwdrive toward front of vacuum.
5. When strip is 5-6 inches out, grasp with fingers and and slide gently out the front of vacuum.
6. Repeat for other side.
7. Lay machine on it's top and lift bottom half of canister off top half.
8. You now have access to cordwinder. I suggest you take notes as you go so you remember where everything goes.

Putting it back together isn't this easy.

I have an epic 6500SR I'm trying to change the


You really don't want to get into the vacuum. You could cause more damage than what you have now. After you do get into the vac, the cordwinder is another monster to get into.
There are two strips,one on each side of the cleaner under the rubber bumpers. The strips have to be removed by pulling off the bumper and pull them out the front of the vac.This is not easy. After you get the locking strips out, turn the vac over and pull the bottom off. Then you can see the cordwinder.
The best thing to do is take the vac to a Aerus/Electrolux shop for repair.
