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.

How do I replace cord rewinder on Hoover UH70120?


You should not try this on your own. Take it to an authorized Hoover warranty repair center near you. This is not an easy job and is usually not worth the expense if the machine is out of warranty anyway. If it's within the warranty period, warranty will cover it. My shop is a Hoover warranty center and we have replaced a lot of these.

My hoover wind tunnel cord is all the way out; will not rewind. Can I fix it myself?


I took off the dust canister and then the 2 Phillips screws on top of the rewinder. I was searching how to get at the rewinder so I took out the HEPA filter and holder. I then pressed down on the rewind leaver and it rewound. I am not sure why but maybe what I removed was putting some pressure on the rewind mechanism or I just had good luck.

Power cord will not come out


There is probably a crossed cord in the rewinder. I am not sure but if you can get into the rewinder you can free up the cord it should go, hope this helps. Chris

Hoover UH70120 WindTunnel TSeries problems with the cord. im a tech savy guy and have been trying to fix a cord after it was pulled to far out and now wont auto retract, but just cant find a way to pull...


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.

Cord rewind hoover s3765


Remove the 5 Phillips-head screws carefully without stripping the heads. There are 2 at the front bottom, 2 at the top back (above the wheels), and 1 at the back beneath the dustbin. After the screws are loosened/removed, you can remove the top cover of the vacuum (be careful with the attached wiring harness). Then remove the black plastic cover over the cord rewind wheel, and you can easily remove the wheel. Pull the cord out a bit to give yourself some slack. You should be able to free the jammed cord and then reassemble the vac.
