SOURCE: electrolux z4494 vacuum cleaner mains cable wont stay out

Opened up case as follows:
- Open lid of bag chamber. Remove lid by gentry prising the hinge arms slightly further apart so the hing unclips from the body.
2 deeply recessed screws now accessible at rear edge of bag chamber - undo.
Prise out large button of on/off switch to reveal another screw - undo
Prise out large button of cable retract to reveal another screw - undo.
Cover now lifts off.

Inside I found the brake wheel had fallen out of its plastic bracket. The plastic bracket is hinged, and moved my pressing one end with the big button, which lifts the wheel away from the cable drum. Gently prised the bracket arms apart and put the brake wheel back in.
Solved it - but don't know why it happened, or whether it is likely to happen again.

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore Vacuum

The retraction mechanizm is likely jammed. Mostly likely the cord has jumped it's groove in the retraction wheel/hub. If you are good with tools there is a 70% chance you can get it to work again with a basic DCR operation. Most mechanical problems can be solved using this simple rule: Dissassemble Clean and Reassemble.

CAUTION: The retract mech has a powerful spring inside, avoid exposing. Most retract mech units are rivoted closed so consumers won't poke thier eye out.
CAUTION: UNPLUG THE UNIT

Open the unit from the bottom and the top lid of the canister should come off.
The retract mech should be obvious as it is where the cord comes into the unit.
Look for the cord being bound by iteslf either on top or underneath (lie two cordes in one groove)
Remove any binding.
If you see no debris or obsticals for the cord to retract (where it is getting stuck)
Your spring could have sprung!
Do you feel and retract at all?
Can you locate the releae mechagnism?
Does the Release button seem to function? When Pressed it should take pressure off of the cord hub.
The retract mech may need replaced. Overall the cost will be about $60 for parts.

Bissell momentum canister vacuum retractable electrical cord not retracting


Either the cord inside is caught on something or the retraction spring is broken.
Try to pull it out further, if you can feel any spring-back then most likely the cord is caught, maybe on itself.
Either way, the canister will probably have to be disassembled to fix the problem.

The retractor has failed. You will have to disassemble the machine, find the retractor and repair/replace it.

I am trying to find out the size of the filter. The model is C 2006P. It also does not have a brand name, only a D on the side. It takes a cyclone shaped filter


Mellisa, searched the net, very little info. suggest you take vac/filter with you and stop by a vac/repair shop who will be able to see if it matches other models and can set you up with replacement filter.

Do you mean S5380?
Phone local vacuum repairers and ask for estimates. The power cord is only fairly cheap. I would have thought that even with expensive labour it should cost less than 100$. He's probably trying to cover himself in case its something else. Have you contacted Miele? it is worth asking for a price if they'll give you one
Miele Inc Anything Else is Compromise
As far as replacing the cord yourself, it's not as simple as just connecting it, i think it has to be put on a tensioned drum.

How do I take about my Dyson DC11 to replace the retractable power cord assembly


While it doesn't require a collection bag, a Dyson-brand vacuum cleaner can still suffer the problems of wear and tear that are prone to any vacuum cleaner--for example, a frayed power cord. If the power cord of your Dyson vacuum cleaner has become frayed, change it immediately to avoid a dangerous electrical mishap. You will need a replacement cord from an electronics service center, along with a few common household tools. You do not need electrical skills to complete the task.
Follow this steps on how to replaced the power cord assembly:

1 Unplug the Dyson vacuum cleaner's power plug from the wall outlet. Press the button on the top front of the plastic collection cover. Lift the cover off the front of the vacuum cleaner and place it aside.

  • 2 Trace the power cord to where it enters the back bottom of the vacuum cleaner. Remove the screws from the panel surrounding the power cord with a Phillips screwdriver. Remove the panel. Aim the beam of a flashlight inside the compartment so that you can see where the wires at the end of the power cord wrap around two screws on the motor assembly. Loosen these screws with a Phillips jeweler's screwdriver.

  • 3 Pull the power cord out of the compartment and dispose of it properly. Strip a 1/2 inch of insulation from the ends of the two wires of the replacement power cord. Run the wires into the compartment along the path of the original power cord--pushing the wires into the grooves inside the compartment.

  • 4 Tie a knot on the cord on the inside of the compartment to prevent the cord from being pulled out.

  • 5 Wrap the exposed end of each wire of the power cord around the loosened screws. Tighten the screws. Replace the panel and reattach the screws. Stand the vacuum cleaner right side up. Place the bottom of the plastic collection cover into the bottom front slot on the vacuum cleaner. Push the cover back on the front of the vacuum cleaner.

    The plug in cord will not retract. How do you take the end off to repair?


    You can usually get it to rewind by tipping the front up and gently tugging and releasing the cord.
    The back doesn't come off unless the top is separated from the bottom first. Do to difficulty in disassembly without breaking something, and reassembling correctly, I strongly recomment taking it to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store for repair.

    The power cord is fully extended and will not retract in Miele LUNA vacuum cleaner model s4580


    Keep playing with it, it will go if you are careful. The alternative is to disassemble the device and get involved with the retractor system. This is not always a simple task with springs under tansion, reassembly required about 8 hands ... which MAY be a small exageration.

    Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

    The cord won't retract, how do I fix it?


    Hold the vacuum at a nearly upright position. Gently tug and release the cord near the vacuum. This should cause the cord to retract. If not, it may be a worn out spring or a broken piece on the cordwinder. If this is the case, it needs to be taken to an Aerus Electrolux store for repairs.
