Question about Sharp Twin Energy EC-12TWT4 Bagged Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

HI, I'm trying to find a part for a Sharp upright vacuum. Its the back part of the handle where the cord is stored. I have taken it off but can't find any part # on it. The model number for the vacuum is EC12TWT4. I was thinking that if I could find a free owner's manual, that would give me the part # and then I could look for it on the net.

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.

How to take apart to replace power cord


Hello,

In order to access the cord on the Miele S183 upright, you'll need to first remove the handle from the vacuum cleaner. There is a large screw that holds the handle in place that is located under neath of the lower cord wrap hook. Simply remove this screw, and slide the off the vacuum by pushing the handle towards the back of the machine.

Once you have the handle removed, now ope the bag door as if you were going to replace the vacuum bag. You'll see two screws directly above where the bag fits inside of the machine. These two screws will open up the switch and cord housing and give you access to the electrical cord.

You'll see that there are two screws that secure the cord as it comes into the vacuum from the back. Remove both of these screws so that the cord is no longer secured. I think the easiest way to replace this cord is to simply cut the cord (MAKE SURE THE VACUUM IS UNPLUGGED) so that there is about 4-5 inches of the cord jacket (rubber coating around the cord) remaining. You may now just pull this cord jacket off of the cord, along with the paper insulation so you have two bare wires of the old cord. Now take your new cord and push it into the back of the vacuum so that it comes through the switch housing. Instead of having to re-secure the cord with the two screws, I've found that if you tie a small knot in the cord, this works just as well at preventing the cord from pulling through the back of the vacuum.

Simply strip the wires that are left from the old cord, and simply wire nut the new cord after tying a knot (or re-securing it with the two screws), and reassemble the vacuum cleaner. Test the vacuum only after putting the switch housing cover back into place.

My Sharp Vacuum, Model EC-S2365 just stopped working in the middle of vacuuming. I'm not sure what happened and I can't turn it back on. Any suggestions?


Just before it shut down were you pulling on the cord? For it to shut down like that it almost sounds like the electric cord has a break in it-probably at the plug

I NEED TO CLEAN UPRIGHT HANDLE TUBE IT IS CLOGGED


Its a simple operation but it will take some time.  On the back of the Oreck just up from the motor you'll come to the first rubber ring which hides the push/pin locks of the main spine. There are two or three on the Oreck depending on the XL model - slide them down to reveal the pin locks and push them in wards to unlock the main spindle pipe. At the same time ensure that the bag clip at the bottom has been unclipped and the cord is also free, taken off the hooks at the back. The main pipe/spine at the back is the main dust channel so this is the first place to check for a clog and then upwards towards the handle/dust channel feeder - there is usually a small screw on the square part at the bottom which loosens the main handle from the body of the spine.

Oreck Upright


The cord could be bad and will ahve to be replaced. It would have to have a problem inside the handle or down by the motor.
