    So how easy is it to open her up and check it out?

  • sublime158 May 11, 2010

    Okay, I have located the rewinder on my Hoover Elite rewind and have the screws removed. The spring reel is visible. The spring does not look broken. But I still do not know how it should work... so I'm feeling a little ignorant at this moment. I'm not a mechanic, or an engineer, just a frustrated woman who needs a little guidance. I know how to diagnose most things on a vacuum. In fact I solved the lack of suction problem today. Any help will be appreciated. THANKS

Sounds like the spring is either over stretched or broken. you may have to have the spring replaced

    I would try and locate the screws holding it in place first. If there easy enough to take out. after you have it open the spring should be right there first thing you see. If in fact it is broke or stretched just replace the spring. not exspensive at all. I have had to replace many of them myself.

You should take it to a vacuum repair shop. You are most likely not going to be able to repair the rewinder yourself and may get a nasty surprise if the spring pops out in your face. Access is with 4 screws ( depending on the model ) ; 2 under the bag housing lid, and the other 2 at the rear corners , under the rewind pedal or inside the power tool caddy.

heya,

your exactly right. there is probably 2 or 3 screws your missing there.

now getting to these screws is easy. If you haven't already, remove the top filter and the bag door lid.

Assuming you have taken the screw out holding the black control panel out already... you want to remove the black panel with your on/off switch and the cord rewind. Once you have the panel off there are a couple of screws there that are holding you back. once removed, you should have full access to the underneath with the motor and cord rewinder there.

Good luck,
Mark

Power cord reel problem with a kenmore canister vacuum whisperti


Pull the cord all the way out and see if it's contaminated with anything sticky. Also check the guide rollers that the cord rides in and see if they are rolling smoothly and without resistance - they may also need cleaning. If so, clean it off and try again.

If not, it may be the spring reel itself in which case you may need to replace it.

You can go to the Sears Parts Direct website and type in your Model number. It will return both an exploded view and parts list, with pricing for replacement parts. You can also order from them, and they can tell you stock status as well.

Power cord retrieval


Depending on which model you have, take the bag door or lid off by pushing it back and it will unhook and come off, there are 4 screws that hold the cover on over the where the cord rewind button is, take that cover off and you can get to the cord reel.

Pwr cord rewind reel


You have to pop the grey button off for the cord rewind. There is one more screw under there. You have to be very careful, because you can break one of the tabs that hold the button on. In fact, it is almost a garuntee. There are three tabs that stick off the button that hold it in place on the orange hood. There's a long tab about 3/4 inch long on the inside corner of the button you need to be careful of. Good luck!
