You will need to take the machine apart to correct this. Open the front of the canister and remove the bag. As you are looking at the front of the unit, there are two vinyl covered strips that run the length of the unit. Pull forward on these strips and then pull out so that the vinyl separates 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 off relatively easily, and everything will be exposed. Now, assuming that the cordwinder isn't damaged, you should be able to wind the cord in by hand. Once it gets started it may start to retract automatically. Usually the spring just gets in a bind against the housing when it's over extended, and rolling it in by hand a little will free it up. Good Luck!!

Cord retraction


You may have to replace the cord reel. First inspect it thoroughly to see if you can find something restricting it from retracting.

Several possible problems can cause it not to run. The cord reel often gets lint in side and fails to conduct. Carbon brushes in the motor could have worn out. One of the interlocks that keeps it from working with the bag out can be broken. You need to take this to a local vac shop.

With all that's involved in replacing the cord and potential cord reel damage, it's more cost effective to just have the entire cord reel, complete with new cord, replaced. Less time consuming thus less costly to you. Hope it helps!

I have a Hoover Legacy model S3592 and the cord will not retract, it is fully extended. How can I fix this problem? Patty Lester


You may have to dis-assemble the machine to the point where you can gain access to the mechanism that retracts the cord. Then see if it can be fixed or needs replacement. Just don't lose any parts when dis-assembly, and make sure everything is put back together correctly.

The power cord does not retract or rewind when the button is pushed. How can I repair this?


Sometimes you can help get the springs working again, by gently pulling the cord out a little further and then let it slowly in while pushing the cord retract button.

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

CORD SPOOL WILL NOT PULL BACK


Try tilting the vacuum to about a 45 degree angle. Gently tug and release the cord a few times. This usually will release the cord. If not, the cord winder may have broken, or the spring came loose, and it needs replaced/repaired. Take it to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store for help/repair.

The power chord on the 2100 electrolux will not retract


Try standing the vacuum on end, or at a near vertical position, and gently tugging on the cord a few times. This will usually cause it to retract. The problem is usually caused by pulling the cord out too far. Avoid doing this as it can result in disconnecting or breaking terminals and/or wiring.
