Question about Electrolux Lux 7000 Bagged Canister Vacuum
The power cord no longer retracts. How to I take the machine apart to get at and fix the power cord so that it will retract?
The trim pieces along the sides just pull off seperating the two housings. The back portion where the retract drum is is held by two plastic tangs on top inside. use a screwdriver to pry the ring down to dislodge the tangs. the bottom part will lift off. remove the front part using two screws just below the hinge. the retract has a long coil spring wound around a free spinning hub. there are two "tangs" inside that engage a ratchet-pawl assembly. you'll need to rotate the drum to rewind the spring onto its hub.

Open the bag door, remove the bag (leave door open)and then with a hammer and a blunt instrument(wooden dowel) Strike the side rubber "bumper" rails towards the open door side of the machine from the back of the vacuum. You should get it started and then it should easily pull out from both sides. you can remove the bottom of the vacuum and remove the cord "guard" to allow the cord to go thru also. The back is held on by the union of these two halves by dowel pins(plastic nubs) Sometimes the "spring" mechanism gets jammed from over pulling. Just simply roll the smaller wheel to retract the cord manually. You coould try spraying the rollers with a silicone or graphite type spray to allow free movement of the spring. Hopes this helps.

I own an electrolux ambassador III i spent a lot of money on it and if it broke it i would take it to an authorized electrolux repair shop because it sounds easy to fix them but electrolux vacuums have a complicated wire system and it is easy to mix them up or break is worse then it is to begin with.
