Re: I can not get the power cord to go back into the...
If you can't get it to go back in by pulling on it, you will need to open up the machine to rewind it by hand. Open the front of the canister and remove the bag. As you are looking at the front of the unit, there are two vinyl coverd strips that run the length of the unit. Pull forward on these strips and then pull out so that the vinyl seperates from the plastic underneath. Now grab the plastic strip with a pair of needle nose pliers and pull towards the front of the canister. These can be tough if the machine has never been opened up before, but pull as hard as you need to, to slide the strip out. Once both strips are out, turn the machine over, pull out on the sides of the bottom of the unit, and lift up. The bottom should come of relatively easily, and eveything will be exposed. You can now see the cordwinder and the spring that pulls the cord back in. If it's not broken, you should be able to manipulate the spring reel by hand and get the cord started so that it will rewind by itself. If not, you probably need to have the cordwinder replaced. Good Luck!!

On your DC23's cord is a red indicator to show the maximum length the cord should be extended - pulling it further than this could cause damage to the machine. If this appears to have happened to your machine, please get in touch with us so we can provide further assistance - you can call us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).
We'll look forward to helping you resolve this issue.
there are screws under the power switch and the cord recoil switch. the switches pry off lengthwise. once the switch covers are off you will see the rest of the screws. it was pretty straight forward from there.
Try standing vacuum on end, then gently tugging and releasing cord. This generally will retract it.
There are many problems that can result in disassembly and reassembly by an untrained person, including shock and fire. For those and other reasons, I don't recommend trying this yourself. Take it to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store for repair.
The back of the vacuum can only be removed by separating the top and bottom portions of the canister. The cord winder will need to be removed and the wires all disconnected. The cordwinder is then taken apart and the cord rewound and set for proper tension for rewinding. If the cord is simply stuck due to having been pulled out too far, this is generally not necessary.
Open the bag door, remove the bag (leave door open)and then with a hammer and a blunt instrument(wooden dowel)Strike the side rubber "bumper" rails towards the open door side of the machine from the back of the vacuum. You should get it started and then it should easily pull out from both sides. you can remove the bottom of the vacuum and remove the cord "guard" to allow the cord to go thru also. The back is held on by the union of these two halves by dowel pins(plastic nubs) Sometimes the "spring" mechanism gets jammed from over pulling. Just simply roll the smaller wheel to retract the cord manually.You could try spraying the rollers with a silicone or graphite type spray to allow free movement of the spring. Hopes this helps.

You don't have to open the cannister. You can easily remove the black plastic collar through which the cord is supposed to emerge. The collar has a little springy tab that holds it in place. Once the collar is removed, you can reach in and grab the cord and pull it out.
Depending on which model you have, take the bag door or lid off by pushing it back and it will unhook and come off, there are 4 screws that hold the cover on over the where the cord rewind button is, take that cover off and you can get to the cord reel.
Most cord reels have a stop on it, it is a rubber wheel and when dust gets on the wheel, they won't always stop the reel. It would have to be opend up to get to the cord reel, then you could clean it out.
