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!

With the cord pulled out, the rewind spring should be very tight.

The mechanism may just need lubricating, or there is a worn or broken part preventing the spring from retracting the cord, or the spring is loose/broken.

How do I replace cord rewinder on Hoover UH70120?


You should not try this on your own. Take it to an authorized Hoover warranty repair center near you. This is not an easy job and is usually not worth the expense if the machine is out of warranty anyway. If it's within the warranty period, warranty will cover it. My shop is a Hoover warranty center and we have replaced a lot of these.

How do you get into the rewinder?


This repair should be taken to a expert, If you take this cordwinder apart and don't know what you are doing you could end up having to replace the cordwinder because of the spring tensioner.

Motor shut off


Try it half an hour later, does it run? If so it's overheating. Change your filters and empty the cup.
If it does not run it's likely a problem with the cord rewind. Some of those units had a recall on the cord rewind. To find out for sure find a local hoover service center and take it in for repair many times at no cost.

My hoover wind tunnel cord is all the way out; will not rewind. Can I fix it myself?


I took off the dust canister and then the 2 Phillips screws on top of the rewinder. I was searching how to get at the rewinder so I took out the HEPA filter and holder. I then pressed down on the rewind leaver and it rewound. I am not sure why but maybe what I removed was putting some pressure on the rewind mechanism or I just had good luck.

Power cord will not come out


There is probably a crossed cord in the rewinder. I am not sure but if you can get into the rewinder you can free up the cord it should go, hope this helps. Chris

Plug/wire is stuck partially out (4-5 inches)pressing on rewind button nothing happens....just stuck!


This usually means the cord got twisted over itself. Pull it completely out and give slight resistance on cord and rewind it again.

Hoover s3639 vacuum...cord does not rewind


I had the same problem with my Hoover s3639. The cord rewinder started squeaking, and retracted less and less of the cord each time, until it finally stopped retracting the cord at all. Here is what I did. I hope it will work for you as well. Open the covered tool storage and remove the tools. You should see three screws. Unscrew the screws. Remove the cover. You should see the motor for the vacuum and the cord rewinder. Between the vacuum motor and the white wheel where the cord is, you should see two brass wheels that turn into each other in order to operate the cord rewinder. Spray a small amount WD-40 between the two brass wheels. This should solve your problem.

Hoover U5507900 Elite Rewind problem


May have to replace the cord reel asm. It will have to be taken out and inspected, if can't see a problem, then replace it. If this is less then one year old, then it is still under warranty and should be taken to a warranty shop along with proof of purchase.
