Pulled on the electrical cord and has stopped working.


You probably have separated a wire from the prong inside the cord. You may get a new end for the cord at a hardware store or you can get a replacement cord form the manufacturer

How do get electrical cord to vacuum replaced?


Look, don't try to do it yourself. This is serious. You need it looked at by an electrician, otherwise it could be very dangerous to use if you attempt to fix it yourself. Honest!

How do I replace the power cord on an electrolux 8502A vacuum cleaner?


1 Unplug the vacuum and remove all accessories such as extensions and brushes. Open the vacuum's outer casing to get at the end of the power cord. Exactly how you will do this depends on the model of vacuum. Generally it simply involves the removal of two to three Phillips-head screws.
2 Follow the power cord to the two connections at the vacuum's motor. Unfasten any clips or holding bracket and disconnect the cord from the motor. Sometimes this can be accomplished by unscrewing two connection screws, other times the cord is soldered directly to the motor. If this is the case use wire cutters and cut the cord about 4 inches from the motor to give room for splicing on a new cord.
3 Insert the new power cord into the vacuum. Follow the exact same path as the old one. If there were any brackets or clips that held the old cord in place inside the vacuum or out use them on the new cord.
4 Tie a knot in the cord on the inside of the vacuum casing so that it will not accidentally be pulled out of the motor once it is in use.
5 Connect the new cord to the motor in the same fashion as the old one. With wire strippers take off about 1 inch of insulation from the new cord to expose the two wires. Either wrap them around the connection posts and re-screw, or twist the new cord wires around the 4-inch remnants of the old cord and seal all exposed wire and connections with electrical tape.
6 Replace the vacuum's casing in reverse order from how you removed it. Plug in the vacuum to test.

How do I take about my Dyson DC11 to replace the retractable power cord assembly


While it doesn't require a collection bag, a Dyson-brand vacuum cleaner can still suffer the problems of wear and tear that are prone to any vacuum cleaner--for example, a frayed power cord. If the power cord of your Dyson vacuum cleaner has become frayed, change it immediately to avoid a dangerous electrical mishap. You will need a replacement cord from an electronics service center, along with a few common household tools. You do not need electrical skills to complete the task.
Follow this steps on how to replaced the power cord assembly:

1 Unplug the Dyson vacuum cleaner's power plug from the wall outlet. Press the button on the top front of the plastic collection cover. Lift the cover off the front of the vacuum cleaner and place it aside.

  • 2 Trace the power cord to where it enters the back bottom of the vacuum cleaner. Remove the screws from the panel surrounding the power cord with a Phillips screwdriver. Remove the panel. Aim the beam of a flashlight inside the compartment so that you can see where the wires at the end of the power cord wrap around two screws on the motor assembly. Loosen these screws with a Phillips jeweler's screwdriver.

  • 3 Pull the power cord out of the compartment and dispose of it properly. Strip a 1/2 inch of insulation from the ends of the two wires of the replacement power cord. Run the wires into the compartment along the path of the original power cord--pushing the wires into the grooves inside the compartment.

  • 4 Tie a knot on the cord on the inside of the compartment to prevent the cord from being pulled out.

  • 5 Wrap the exposed end of each wire of the power cord around the loosened screws. Tighten the screws. Replace the panel and reattach the screws. Stand the vacuum cleaner right side up. Place the bottom of the plastic collection cover into the bottom front slot on the vacuum cleaner. Push the cover back on the front of the vacuum cleaner.

    What is easiest way to replace electric cord that has frayed at entrance to the vacuum?


    I would take it to a qualified repair shop for this type if repair. Without knowing the specifics, most vacuums have a strain relief that needs to be squeezed and pryed out. Once this is out the cord can be replaced, but will need to have the correct type of electrical connectors and tools to make the connection. Most cords cost about $15 - $20

    It seems like the hose might be clogged. How do I get possible blockage out? The hose is so long - too long for a wire hanger to reach all the way through.


    put a golf ball through it or if that is to big get a smaller heavy ball bearing put in hose and hold hose up until it passes thru

    Need to change electrical cord on g5 kirby


    This should be fairly easy to do. With the cord unplugged, take the screw out that it holding the hard plastic cord cover onto the base of the machine. This is where the cord looks like it's going into the bottom of the machine. The next part is a bit tricky. The hard plastic piece holding the cord in can be popped out with a flat head screw driver. On each side of the cover pop the tip of the screw driver into the side and gently pull to the side. Do this on both sides of the cover and it should come right off.
    The cord should just pull out.

    Put the new cord in, pop the plastic cover back on, and put the screw back in.

    Let me know if you need more help.

    :)

    Broken electrical cord


    The belt can e replaced but I recommend you should take it to your local vacuum cleaner service center. They may even be able to fit a new plug on the end for you if the damage is at the plug end.

    Change cord on electrolux EL5020


    In order to get to the cord that is disconnected you need to remove the screws that hold on the frame(the red shell). You will need to remove the "fenders" that are near the wheels. In order to remove the fenders get a flat tip screwdriver and pry up on the front part of the fender, there are three clips holding the left one on and two holding the fender near the cord. You will need to remove the left wheel (the wheel farthest from the cord). After you remove all the exterior screws and the four screws under the brissels the shell should be able to be removed. Next you will need to pull the cord all the way out and there will be a clear clip, use a flat tip screwdriver and release the clip in order to remove the clear piece that holds the power cord electrical ends. Reattach the clips of the power cord and be sure when you put the clear piece back in that the two contacts are not bending. You will need to use a screwdriver to guide the electrical clips back into place. I didn't count the screws there is a lot of them. I hope this helps you

    Electric cord


    You did not say which model you have, but if upright, most cords went in on the upper part of the handle and you need to take it apart to do that.
