It's plastic with chrome paint, not metal. Take it to a vac repair shop and have them fix it. You may break the tabs if you force it.

How to rewind the power cord assemble?


The only way to rewind the cord assembly is to take the cord real out of the vacuum and rewind it and put it back in. There is no easy way to do it

My cord wont rewind


The rewind tension spring may be broken or fully extended. Try to yank hard on the cord and pull toward you with some force. Pull until the line will no longer come out and if it won\'t recoil then it needs to be repaired.

Think cleaning lady pulled too hard on cord...now no power, doesn't turn on


it is possible that the cord rewinder has become broken inside the unit. It is a common problem with this and other models by Miele.

There IS a fix to the cord rewind, unless your model falls within the 5 year warranty. In which case contact your nearest Miele dealer for a replacement to the cord rewinder.

Good luck.

Power cord caught in rewinder, Sears bagged canister. 10 yrs old


Hi There,

I'm sorry, I didn't get your comment on your previous repair. In order to get the cord reel out of the canister, here's what you'll need to do:

I have uploaded2_bing.gif a parts diagram of your model below so that you can follow along:

7dbc7c2.jpg

Step 1. Open up the tool lid as if you were going to remove the dusting brush or crevice tool from the top of the vacuum2_bing.gif. Once the lid for the tools is open, simply grab the two arms at the base of the lid, and pull forward towards the front of the vacuum where the bag connects. You'll need to remove the tool lid completely from the rest of the vacuum. You may have to lift slightly upwards while pulling forwards to remove the lid.

Step 2. After you've removed the tool lid, now open up the lower part of the tool lid that covers the vacuum bag (Part 29 in diagram above). While this cover is open all the way, grab the two arms on this part as well, and pull towards the front of the vacuum where the bag connects, and slightly upwards, just as you did to remove the tool lid. Remove the vacuum bag lid completely from the vacuum cleaner2_bing.gif as well.

Step 3. There are two visible screws that are now visible (The screw listed as number 16 that's directly underneath of the number 36) on the front corners of the motor housing. Remove both of these screws that are in the front corners of the motor housing.

Step 4. There are actually two more screws that are hidden on this model, that are located underneath of the foot pedal that retracts the cord reel. You'll need to now remove the foot pedal from the vacuum cleaner (part 36 on the diagram). In order to do this, use a flat head screw driver to pry off the foot pedal. Insert the flat head screw driver in the front of the pedal where the pedal meets the motor housing. There are 4 tabs that hold this pedal in place. Usually if you put your flat head screw driver in the middle of the pedal where two of these tabs are right next to each other, the pedal will come off right away. Insert your flat head screw driver where I have circled red, these are the two tabs that you want to pry off. Simply push towards the rear of the vacuum while the flat head screwdriver is inserted in between the foot pedal and the motor housing:

Step 4. Now that you have the foot pedal off of the canister, simply remove the two now exposed hidden screws (oh yea watch out for that spring that's underneath of the pedal! remember to put this back when putting the pedal back), and lift straight up on the motor housing. You'll now have full access to the cord reel so that you may push the cord back through the hole in the rear of the vacuum cleaner.

Please feel free to use the Clarification Request form here on the repair page if you have any questions, or need some further help in accessing the cord reel. If your cord reel has gone bad, we do carry all the parts for your vacuum, and we'd be more then happy to provide any part that you may need. Here's a link to the bags for your vacuum on our site, just in case you need to purchase some:

If this was helpful to you, please be so kind and return the favor by rating my repair solution helpful. You may do this by clicking the 4 thumbs up icons in the top right hand corner of the repair.

Handle wont go to upright position


The red pedal has slipped out of position. On both ends of the red pedal you'll see metal rods (the axel of the pedal). On one side you'll see the metal rod sits into a long groove, on the other side you'll see the metal rod sits into a round hole. They both have to be in the long grooves so you have to reposition the rod that's into the round hole by pulling it out and sliding it back into the long groove above the round hole. You'll now be able to bring the handle up and lock the machine back into the upright position.

Automatic Cord Rewinder is not rewinding anymore


I had the same problem - the power cord for my Hoover Elite Upright (U5507900) was stuck a few inches out and wouldn't go any further. But when I unscrewed the rewinding mechanism, the cord had clearly gotten twisted and partly buried under itself so after some work I was able to free it. Now it seems to be working fine, at least for the moment. Note that I had to use small screwdrivers to unscrew the cord rewinding compartment, like the kind of screwdrivers you use for computer repair.
HTH!

Power cord won't retract on anaerus 5500 vacuum cleaner


What you can do is take out the six hex screws on the bottom of the machine while on it's back. When all the screws are out, flip the machine back over, making sure you don't lose any of the screws. From there, open the bag cover and leave it open. Remove the cord release button. (The big rectangular button near the rear of the machine. Usually a firm pull up will get that thing out without incident.) Grasp the handle with one hand and hold the machine steady with the other. With a firm pull, pull upwards. This should seperate the chassis from the main cover.

With the machine guts exposed, place the main cover on the side for now. Now, this next part you can do one of two ways. You can either leave the cordwinder wires attached, (there's only 2 connected wires to the cordwinder, the white and black. Black is on the inside prong while the white is on the outside) or you can take the wires off. I find it easier to disconnect the wires.

Now, remove the cordwinder from it's place, making sure you take note of how the cordwinder rests in the groove from the motor. From there you can rewind your cord fully. Once this is complete, continue winding the cord while holding the cord in place. Take note of the spring. Make sure you are winding in the direction that is TIGHTENING the spring. Make sure you don't overtighten as the center plastic piece will surely snap due to the overtension. This may take a few tries, but be patient. Once you have met your estimated tension needed, replace the cordwinder, put the cover back on WITHOUT SCREWING IT BACK IN PLACE and replace the cord rewind button.

Replace the large cord release button and pull your cord out at least halfway. Hit your Cord rewind button. If your cord rewinds fully, congratulations, you got it in one try. Replace the screws and you are finished. If not, re-open the machine and continue rewinding the cord in the direction that TIGHTENS the spring with emphasis on overtightening. Once you break that center plastic prong, you need to buy a new cordwinder, so emphasize patience. If you're getting frustrated, go take a break and come back. Repeat until the cord winds fully, replace all the screws and you are finished.
