Hoover s3639 vacuum...cord does not rewind

The electric cord on my hoover s3639 does not wind back.  Is there an easy way to fix it?  If I have to open the body of the vacuum cleaner to do that, how do I open it?  Where can I see an exposed view of the interior of the s3639.  Please help.

I had the same problem with my Hoover s3639. The cord rewinder started squeaking, and retracted less and less of the cord each time, until it finally stopped retracting the cord at all. Here is what I did. I hope it will work for you as well. Open the covered tool storage and remove the tools. You should see three screws. Unscrew the screws. Remove the cover. You should see the motor for the vacuum and the cord rewinder. Between the vacuum motor and the white wheel where the cord is, you should see two brass wheels that turn into each other in order to operate the cord rewinder. Spray a small amount WD-40 between the two brass wheels. This should solve your problem.

Windup spring has come undone from assembly inside reel. I guess you order another reel assembly, probably cost almost as much as a new S3639.

You will probably have to replace the cord winding mechanism. I have never had any luck trying to repair one. Cord retracters are great when they work but it seems like they always go bad before too long. On many units you can't even replace the cord if you get a bad spot in it, you have to buy a new cord reel which can get expensive.
