Question about Electrolux Vacuums
Electrolux Epic 6000 SR. I pulled the electric cord a bit too far out of the self winding reel and don't know how to fix it. I am handy with tools. There is still a bit of pull, maybe an inch of cord, and the reel still have some spring, just pulled it out too far. Appreciate any help Thank you

oh, and as far as i know there's no secondary filter on this machine. or at least if there is, ours hasn't needed any tending to in at least ten years or so...

There are two keys holding the body together, underneath the bumpers on the side of the vac. With the bag door open these keys when gripped with pliers will slide forward to release the body panels.
Before opening the vac, gently push the cord back inside the housing.
If the spool rotates and allows the cord to push in , the body must be disassembled, and the cord winder removed and the spring reloaded. This is tricky work. you will need to wind the entire cord onto the spool, then load 3.5 rotations onto the coil spring for tensioning, then reassemble. It's a bit like working on a land mine of you're new at it. Wear safety glasses.
BUT if the spool is locked from the outside and the cord wont push in or pull out, a fine , long blade screwdriver can be inserted diagonal to the body through the cord slot and with luck you can lift a cog of the spool releasing tension and the rewind will work. try that first , but be gentle . You must release the cord spool allowing a a dog ear catch cog to release inside by gently lifting upwards.
Post back to say how you made out,
Or look for an AERUS Electrolux service shop.
