Unless you are able to turn the blade backward and pull on the cord at the same time no luck. it may be easier to just cut the cord and install a new one. solution one is best and both require taking the machine apart. start there and hope it works out for you.

Ps. dont forget to rate the solution. Thanks

How do i remove the power supply socket from the dyson wall mount


Hi Les, it's Jack at Dyson.

The end of the charger cord assembly which attaches to the machine itself is held in place securely by a friction-fit connection. You should be able to use something like a flat-bladed screwdriver to free the end of the charger cord from the docking station. Then with the docking station removed from the wall, you should be able to disconnect the charger cord completely from the rear of the dock, following the route shown in the image below:

How to I fix the stuck power cord on the Dyson DC23 Turbine Head Animal?


Hi Saule, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear your DC23 Turbine Head's cord seems to be stuck. If there's an issue with the cord reel mechanism, your machine may need a repair.

We'd be happy to help you arrange this, and will also be able to confirm if this is covered under your Dyson parts and labour warranty. Please note, we would advise against trying to repair the machine yourself in case damage is caused - if your vacuum is within our warranty period, this could also void any remaining cover.

When you have a moment, please give us a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU) to discuss your options with our experts.

We'll look forward to speaking with you.

Our experts will also be happy to take you through some troubleshooting checks - and if a repair is needed, we'll be able to confirm if your machine is within the Dyson guarantee period.

When you have a moment, please contact the Dyson customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU). We'll look forward to speaking with you.

Hi marilynh57....
Try removing the fan blades and putting them into different positions.
This will sometimes solve your wobbling problem as some fan blades are heavier than others and this causes the wobble you experiance.

My husband got a 18"


1. There is probably a hook type affair on the back of the trimmer that you are supposed to route the extension through to keep the plug from falling out.
2. I would never do what I am going to tell you for safety reasons. It is possible to get a piece of cord, a tie wrap or a hose clamp, adjust it to fit over the trigger and around the handle so that when you pull the trigger, you slip this tight fitting device over it and it keeps it held in tightly enough so you don't have to keep your hand on it. Be advised that this is dangerous in that if you drop the trimmer or hit the electric cord, the trimmer will continue to run uncontrollably until you can get to the power, slip the device off of the trigger or the trimmer cuts the electric cord.
It can be done, but as you can see, it can be very dangerous. These things can amputate fingers.

Just purchased this Dyson dc24 today. brush doesn't spin after gettin tangled in a cord. removed the cord from the brush OK. I have several times: removed the brush and replaced it OK. pushed the red...


When you removed the brush roller dod you examine the end of the actual roller that is opposite from the removal opening. There is a gear that the roller fits over that may have gotten stripped when it became tangled. Check that the gear has not rounded off and look inside the roller bar to see if the area where the gear fits into may have gotten stripped as well. You might try to operate the vacuum without the roller brush installed for a few seconds just to see if the gear turns. When I say gear, it is actually a somall "post" about 1-2" long that the roller brush fits over. Hope this helps!

Automatic Cord Rewinder is not rewinding anymore


I had the same problem - the power cord for my Hoover Elite Upright (U5507900) was stuck a few inches out and wouldn't go any further. But when I unscrewed the rewinding mechanism, the cord had clearly gotten twisted and partly buried under itself so after some work I was able to free it. Now it seems to be working fine, at least for the moment. Note that I had to use small screwdrivers to unscrew the cord rewinding compartment, like the kind of screwdrivers you use for computer repair.
HTH!

My dirt devil just did the same thing to me. I cleaned the filter super good, checked all the hoses for clogs and the brush for tangled strings. Plugged it in and it worked! Yay!!! Hope this works for you too. Linda

Hoover Model S3281, disassembly instructions


GET TO THE REEL AS FOLLOWS:

(BEFORE YOU START, BE SURE TO UNPLUG THE DIMENSION FROM THE OUTLET)

1). TURN VACUUM OVER AND USE A FLAT-BLADE SCREWDRIVER TO WEDGE/SLIDE THE WHEELS OFF (PUT THE SCREWDRIVER BLADE BETWEEN THE LITTLE BLACK WHEEL BRACKET PIECE AND THE GREY CHASSIS OF THE VACUUM AND SLIDE/WIGGLE THE WHEELS OFF);

2). THE 2 DEEP HOLES AT THE TOP OF EACH WHEEL RECESS LEAD TO 1-1/2" LONG PHILLIPS SCREWS >> UNSCREW THEM;

3). AFTER REMOVING ALL 4 SCREWS, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO EASILY LIFT OFF THE TOP OF THE REEL/MOTOR COMPARTMENT.

4). CAREFULLY LIFT AND ROTATE THE CONTROL PANEL TO THE SIDE.

5). THE REEL IS NOW IN PLAIN SIGHT.

6). I’M STILL TRYING TO FIGURE-OUT HOW TO SAFELY ACCESS THE GUTS OF THE REEL MYSELF. I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH INTERMITTENT VACUUM POWER AND ALSO WITH WEAK CORD RETRACTION.


ANYWAY, GOOD LUCK TO YOU !!!
