Electrolux LE, cord retractor not working - Electrolux Vacuums

Posted by on

  • Mickey Mack Dec 27, 2011

    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.

This happens when the spring inside the cord reel fails. The reel can't be fixed, but can be replaced. A Google search for Electrolux parts turned up several sources. Here's a link to one company I have dealt with in the past:

Replacement isn't too difficult if you're comfortable with hand tools and have some patience. Hope this helps and good luck on the repair!

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.

ElectroLex Cannister model C101J Cord won't retract, trying to remove hard plastc side strips. Appears to be 'one-way' lock in 'T' channel - suggestions unlock?


Use a screwdriver to pry on the top or bottom of REAR cover. I t is held by 4 prongs that fit into 4 holes in tabs. It took a little effort to do mine but it came off. From there you can access retractor mechanism.

Electrolux EL 7001 Oxygen 3 power cord continually retracts


The button has two parts - the inner part (button) and the outer part (surrounds the button). The press the outer part to deactivate (pop out!) the inner part.

It took me a while to figure this thing out, but I was glad the vacuum wasn't broken.

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.
