Electrolux vacuum ergospace stop working how to fix


I am not too familiar with this particular model but I would think the cord winder may be shorting out. I think you can take it apart by turning it on its side, pull the side strips off. It is a bit tricky but if you access the winder check the electrical conitinuity from the winder to the plug in cord. You are probably better to take it in but if you cant please be careful to not get a shock..

Repair retractable cord


Depending on which model of Electrolux you have and how far out you have pulled out the cord (most of the Electrolux canisters have a yellow tape around the machine end of the cord to alert you not to pull it out any further), you might have to take it apart to fix it. However, the first thing that I would try would be to stand it on the end (the hose end at the top), and pull short jerks on the cord to see if it will correct itself and retract. If that does not fix it, I would stick a screwdriver in the hole where the cord comes out of the machine and attempt to wind the cord reel back up which will slowly wind the cord back up on the cordwinder. This usually cause the cord to wind back up. If that does not work, then the only option is to take the machine apart to fix it.

The power cord is split near the base unit


There are 2 screws on each side of the top cover of the Rainbow ‘E’ series vacuum cleaners located behind the decal windows. To get to the screws; use a non-scratching tool such as a plastic putty knife and pry out a corner of the plastic window, carefully pull out the plastic window and decal and remove the 2 screws. Repeat this process for both windows and then just lift up the top cover to expose the inside.

Cord rewinder on a Electrolux model C102J vacum cleaner


Hi there Johnd, SmartAlec from Nelsonvacuums.com.au here. I fix vacuums full time for a living and the first time i had this problem with the australian version of this vacuum it tok me an hour to pull it apart and back together. now i have done a dozen or so it is about a 30minute operation. I dont know what you rate your technical skill level at but i give this machine a 8/10 for hardness. It is most likely that the cord has jumped off the reel and is wedged so it shouldn't require parts but it cant be done without nearly stripping it down. There is no reset or similar for the reel. My advice unless your very confident take it to a repairer. It would be 1/2 - 1hr of labour charge only i would think.
Hope this helps.

Meile s251i won't turn on


Hi If the power head isn't working it may be clogged. Try taking it apart to see if threads and general dirt has got in at the sides. Also without the power head if the Miele still isn't working then its a possibility that the on switch wiring is either loose or check the plug at the end of the power cord.

Automatic cord return


if it is anything like an electrolux there is a coiled spring inside that free wheels around a hub. pulling the cord too far out makes the spring slip on the free spinning hub. you may need to take apart the vac and rewind the spring.
