SOURCE: Miele S528 Cord Retractor

There are some screws not removed yet, on the top under the filter there may be one, sometimes there is a screw under the control panel. Maybe these pix's will help. Most likely you will have to replace the cord reel asm (#05240303). You can take the reel apart and re-attach the cord, but if the spring unwound, then it maybe better to replace it.

It is pretty tough to fix a retractor. Maybe hook direct and wind up the cord manual like uprights.

A lot of Miele's have similar construction, you might find the instructions here useful: http://www.sannerud.com/house/miele.html

SOURCE: VACUUM - 1. How to open

Hi,most cord reels have a metal flat spring, wound very tight, like in an old clock (if you remember cartoons very well, you can imagine the spring). It's this coil that retracts the cord. The locking in/out mechanism is similar to a venetian-type blind pull; you can release the blinds, and lock them in any position you choose by pulling slightly at an angle.
The cord reel itself is mechanical; however the cord usually is soldered or otherwise wire-connected to a metallic contact, which in turn is connected to the motor. So if a cord is yanked hard enough to dislodge the connected contact, the vacuum will not run. But, it does take a big yank!
Cord reels, as a rule, are only good for so many ins-and-outs. Eventually they all fail. But, how convenient they are!

Hope this helps.

How can I fix my Miele cat and dog vacuum cleaner. The electric lead will not stay out it keeps wanting to rewind. What can I do?


I think this model is a canister. If it is you might have broken the retractor reel from its bracket. Unfortunately it has to be taken apart and the part checked. Unless you are familiar with taking these apart you will need to bring it to a Miele dealer to have it looked at.

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

Cord will not retract?


This is caused by a broken retractor reel spring, you will need to replace the retractor.

How do i disassemble (i.e. which screws do i pull and which hidden tabs are there) the cord retractor/switch assembly? there is only one screw that appears to hold the piece but it does not come out,...


There are 7 torx head screws to remove in the top plastic housing. 5 are in the perimeter and two are "hidden". One is under the power/cord winder panel which pops off in an upward diredtion. and one is under the cloth filter on top of the motor, inside the bag compartment. Take out those 7 and lift the plastic top panel off !

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.

Cord will not remain OUT..keeps slip-sliding back in


The return is stuck on your cord retractor. Take the machine apart untill you can see the retractor, then there is a button or wire that retracts the cord. If it is stuck in the down possition simply reset it, if it is broke you must replace the complete cord retractor.

Miele .s5210 Bag Vacuum


either the switch or the motor has burned out. try resistance test on each. look for positive resistance change on switch and about 2 ohms on motor. also look for a disconnected wire
