First you will need to take the recoil cover off as your taking the cover off see if the cord goes back in on it's own, if it doesn't then it is likely you are going to need a new spring for it

SOURCE: pull cord will not retract

Have to take all 3 plastic covers (housings) off to get to the spring and tie the new pull rope or change the spring. Just did mine, spring just unlatched and string wouldn't retract. Did not have to by any new parts....works great! Took me 1 hour to get it done.

Bissell momentum canister vacuum retractable electrical cord not retracting


Either the cord inside is caught on something or the retraction spring is broken.
Try to pull it out further, if you can feel any spring-back then most likely the cord is caught, maybe on itself.
Either way, the canister will probably have to be disassembled to fix the problem.

How do u fix a loose starter cord people?


Hi Rick:
Most starter cords rely on a recoil spring to make them retract.
Sometimes when the cord is replaced it is longer than the original so just needs to be shortened. Pull the cord all the way out and if you have way more than you use for a pull start, then shortening it is a fast fix.
To do that, pull out the cord a couple of feet. flip a slip knot in it to keep it from retracting, then take the start handle apart and shorten the cord about 6 inches. Should work fine.
If the cord is talready too short to make it shorter, you'll need to put another wind on the spring.
Reply as a COMMENT to this post af you need coaching through that.
Hint. Don't dismantle the spring assembly so it can get out. They are related to rattlesnakes.
Cheers.

Problem with retractable cord on hand mixer


Hi Sandy

Retractable cord mechanisms, after a while, can get a bit dodgy, especially with things like mixers where there may have been years of accumulated batter, frosting, bread dough, or what have you that got splattered on the cord and subsequently sucked back up into the retractor reel. They typically have an inertial ratchet that lets you pull out, but sticks on retract, unless you pull the cord all the way out to reset.

Before starting, cardinal rule is:
Always unplug before working on electrical stuff. If it's already acting up, you don't need to discover a short or a bit of bare insulation by shocking yourself or starting a fire.

With it unplugged:
  1. Pull the cord out as far as it would normally go. Depending on the exterior, give it a wipedown with a cleaning towel and a surface cleaner like simple green or windex. See if it's looking like it's coughing crumbs out of the cord hole as you pull.
  2. Let it retract all the way, then pull all the way back out. After you have a bit of cord out, pull it a short ways at higher speed, then let it retract back in, solid quick pull, slow retract. You're trying to get the ratchet to re-engage if it's gotten stuck or gummed up.
  3. If you can't get any response the above, you may have to consider whether you want to take it apart. Use a search engine to look for 'My mixer make/model service manual', or 'How to replace cord for my make/model mixer'. Likely as not, someone can go through replacement, which will give you the steps to open it up and just see if it needs cleaning. And, if something has just broken, you'll be in a position to replace it.
  4. A final thought - if it's working fine, and it's just an issue of the retracting cord pulling at the mixer as you work, you can also use a temporary cord-hold. You don't want to do anything that could pinch or cut the cord, but something like a medium sized binder clip, perhaps with a fold of tower inside , can be clipped onto the cord right where it emerges from the mixer, after you have enough cord out. The binder clips are cheap, pretty strong. and not likely to pop off without a deliberate re-opening when you're done.
Good Luck!

JIFFY MODEL 75 ICE AUGER recoil isnt retracting my pull cord. A small engine repairman said i need a whole new top housing and that it is all one piece. Second opinions??


He is correct but if you are handy you can take off the starter assembly and locate/repair the problem yourself. There is a spring assembly in there and if it pops off, the string will not be retracted for starting purposes.

Rice cooker retractable cord burned.


If the mechanical part is still good then any handy person can replace the cord with any purchased cord but to do so safely it would be best to have someone with electrical training to do so

Electric cord won't retract


Depends on the machine. If its a Sebo K model then usually pulling on the cord will re-automatically retract the cord anyway. Any other brand and it will need to be replaced by a qualified repair.
