SOURCE: Cord rewinder on a Electrolux model C102J vacum cleaner

Hi there Johnd, SmartAlec from Nelsonvacuums.com.au here. I fix vacuums full time for a living and the first time i had this problem with the australian version of this vacuum it tok me an hour to pull it apart and back together. now i have done a dozen or so it is about a 30minute operation. I dont know what you rate your technical skill level at but i give this machine a 8/10 for hardness. It is most likely that the cord has jumped off the reel and is wedged so it shouldn't require parts but it cant be done without nearly stripping it down. There is no reset or similar for the reel. My advice unless your very confident take it to a repairer. It would be 1/2 - 1hr of labour charge only i would think.
Hope this helps.

Repair retractable cord


Depending on which model of Electrolux you have and how far out you have pulled out the cord (most of the Electrolux canisters have a yellow tape around the machine end of the cord to alert you not to pull it out any further), you might have to take it apart to fix it. However, the first thing that I would try would be to stand it on the end (the hose end at the top), and pull short jerks on the cord to see if it will correct itself and retract. If that does not fix it, I would stick a screwdriver in the hole where the cord comes out of the machine and attempt to wind the cord reel back up which will slowly wind the cord back up on the cordwinder. This usually cause the cord to wind back up. If that does not work, then the only option is to take the machine apart to fix it.

Need to open the canister to get to the cord assembly of my Electrolux Lux 5000


Why do you need to get to the cord assembly?
If the cord will not retract, tilt the vacuum to about a 45 degree angle and gently tug and release cord. It will usually retract.
Due to problems ensuing from untrained persons attempting to reassemble the vacuum and having to take it to the shop anyway, I recommend not taking it apart.
If the above isn't the problem, please take it to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store for repair.

My power cord will not retract back into the housing< i would like to open the back of the unit but there no screws or bults to due so. How do you open the back of model c151d


Try standing vacuum on end, then gently tugging and releasing cord. This generally will retract it.
There are many problems that can result in disassembly and reassembly by an untrained person, including shock and fire. For those and other reasons, I don't recommend trying this yourself. Take it to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store for repair.
The back of the vacuum can only be removed by separating the top and bottom portions of the canister. The cord winder will need to be removed and the wires all disconnected. The cordwinder is then taken apart and the cord rewound and set for proper tension for rewinding. If the cord is simply stuck due to having been pulled out too far, this is generally not necessary.

How do I repair my Electrolux Lux 9000 cannister electrical cord retraction? It was pulled out as far as it would go and now it doesn't retract.


First, try standing vacuum on it's back end. Gently pull on cord and release. Try this a few times.
If this doesn't work, you'll need to take it to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store and let the service tech repair it. Although it's relatively easy to disassemble, reassembling correctly is trickier. I've had several machines come into the shop disassembled because the owner couldn't figure out how to put it together again.
Also, when taking the cord rewinder apart, there's a risk of breaking tabs that hold it together.

I have an Electrolux Model G. I have to take the


Wow an old but a goody.Electrolux rewinds of this age are like land mines. Be very cautious.
The G is similar to its cousin the model 89. In the 89 a service tech would remove the housing cover with the cord spool held secure and stationary stationary and the housing laying flat. Sometimes a clothes pin or small clamp on the outside of the cord housing.....
Once inside there would be a spool with the cord would on and that spool had both a flat metal spring half visible below the side of the spool and and an open center bearing race. Only half the spring would be exposed from above and a special clamp tool was used to reach in and clamp the spring before any parts were disturbed. You might get away with a set of long skinny needle nose pliers but you must not kink the spring by doing so. Then if removing the spool, you would invert the rewind over an ice cream pail to drop the loose bearings , or remove them with a magnetic screwdriver tip.
If your spring is damaged you will get one through Aerus Electrolux , originally Electrrolux US.
If your cord has given way and you are exceptionally careful, without removing the spool you can desolder the terminals on the bakelite spool inside, drill out the rivets holding the contact ring and shorten the cord . this is far easier than attempting to install a new cord .The next step would be to resolder the cord and re rivet the spool contact ring with a pop riveter and washers to secure the tabs cut out in the ring.
If you remove the entire cord you will have to clamp the spring so a snot to lose its unwound tension. This is VERY tricky. Best of luck . please post back to advise what happens.If you impatient, don't even consider this one, just find another G for parts and steal the rewind

Automatic cord return


if it is anything like an electrolux there is a coiled spring inside that free wheels around a hub. pulling the cord too far out makes the spring slip on the free spinning hub. you may need to take apart the vac and rewind the spring.
