Question about Hoover Elite & Legacy Vacuum Cleaner Belt -
You may have to dis-assemble the machine to the point where you can gain access to the mechanism that retracts the cord. Then see if it can be fixed or needs replacement. Just don't lose any parts when dis-assembly, and make sure everything is put back together correctly.

The hardest part of fixing this is locating and removing the 5 Phillips-head screws without stripping the heads. There are 2 of them at the bottom front, 2 at the top back (above the wheels), and 1 at the back under the dust canister. After they are loosened/removed, you can remove the entire top cover of the vacuum (be careful with the wiring harness), and then the black plastic piece above the cord rewind reel. You can then easily remove the rewind reel, free the snagged cord, and reassemble.

You will probably have to replace the cord winding mechanism. I have never had any luck trying to repair one. Cord retracters are great when they work but it seems like they always go bad before too long. On many units you can't even replace the cord if you get a bad spot in it, you have to buy a new cord reel which can get expensive.
