SOURCE: Retractable cord

first, i'll apologize for not posting pictures with this, but i didn't have a camera handy when i "fixed" it. i'll do my best to explain the sitch.

i also have a sunbeam 4124 whose retractor was jammed...the cord would not release more than two feet or so, nor would it retract. i was able to disassemble it, but broke some internal retaining clips meant to hold the retractor housing to the iron. WARNING!! do not attempt this if you do not want to void your warranty. i can only assume that the manufacturer did not want you to disassemble the cord return housing and as such, hid the retaining clips where it would be impossible to disengage them. i got lucky and only broke one set of the retaining clips....if you carry on, you stand a chance of breaking both sets, which will not allow you to reattach the retractor housing to your iron securely. best thing to do is call sunbeam and have them send you a new iron, but if you're bent on fixing it yourself, here's how i did it (you'll need one medium philips head screwdriver):

1) remove the rubber feet from the bottom of the iron. this will expose two screw holes (the third foot under the retractor button has no screw; this is the side where the reaining clips are buried).
2) remove the two screws
3) WARNING! this is where you have a good chance of breaking your iron. pull the base of the iron really hard, rocking it from side to side. there are two sets of retaining clips recessed in the housing of the iron. the button will come with the base of the iron, the entire cord retraction assembly is self-contained. you can carefully use a screwdriver to pry the two halves apart. also, be careful not to pull too hard as the electrical connections between the iron and the retractor assembly has only about 2 inches of slack, though the connections are just wire-nut'd together and could be reassembled in a pinch.
4) after the retractor housing is separated from the iron, remove the housing cap by unscrewing the four screws.
5) carefully separate the two halves of the housing; the spring may be loose inside and could snap out at you.

here's where my iron was broken....the coil spring is contained by a plastic tray that had snapped, probably due to somebody pulling the cord out too hard. a section of the tray had jammed itself into the inside of the housing, immobilizing the winding mechanism. my only recourse was to completely remove the spring and permanently extend the cord all the way (not one of the features i bought the iron for anyway, so what the heck). PLEASE be careful unwinding the spring if you have to do it....wouldn't want anybody poking out an eye inadvertantly.

6) reassemble the retractor housing by screwing the cap back on with the four screws
7) if you're lucky enough to keep one set of retainer clips, snap the base of the iron back on and reattach the two screws located under the feet.
8) rubber pads back in and voila!

hope this helps!

SOURCE: my grohe kitchen faucet hose won't retract

the first thing you need to check is the weight on the hose under your sink. if it is set too high or to low it doesnt allow the proper weight to pull the hose back into position. also check to see if the hose is twisted under your sink also. I hope these answers will help you out.

How do you get the dog leash/cord to go back into the casing on a retractable leash.


Could be twisted inside, pull the lead out and see if it is twisted and then it might retract properly!

Retractable leashes can usually extend up to 25-30 feet long. They are ideal for leash training puppies; however they may not be the best solution for keeping your pet under control.

Can you lock the brake button on pet leashes? My dog is really strong and when the kids are walking her, I want to be able to control the length of the leash.


Sure - there is a button to press when you want to put a brake on the retractable leash, but there should also be a button you can press in that allows you to lock it. Our dog is huge and pulls against the leash really hard sometimes, so the brake feature is vital.

I want to buy a retractable dog leash but you need to pick a size. How do I know what size to choose?


That depends on the type of dog you have and how much he weighs. The retractable leashes are great but you need to have the right leash or it may not be strong enough to hold your dog. In general, small is for dogs up to 26lb, medium for dogs up to 44lb and large up to 110 lbs.

What is a retractable dog leash?


Retractable leashes are great as they let your pet run around on a long leash, giving them the sense of freedom but allow you to put the brakes on and retract the lead when you want to stop your pet from going any further.

My Flexi retractable dog leash will not retract is there any way to overcome this or do I need to buy a new one?


It could be that the leash became twisted when it retracted or that the spring that is used to retract it has broken, first of all pull out the lead all the way and try to slowly feed it back into the unit ensuring that it stays flat. If you have trouble feeding it back in to the unit it could be the spring - this shouldn't be too hard to replace by opening the unit. Undo the Allen screws on side of retractable leash. Carefully use standard screwdriver to gently pry the top from the bottom. Try to pry evenly on each side to avoid breaking the plastic casing. Visually inspect parts for signs of damage such as burns, cuts, rubs, tangles, frayed or worn sections. Check all sewn areas for loose, missing or damaged stitches. Replace leash material if necessary.
