The lower cord hook is held in by a screw removed with a phillips screwdriver. The upper cord hook has a nut on an "L" shaped bolt. The "L" goes through the hole in the handle. Reassemble the cord hook parts in the same way they were before.

How do I replace Riccar 8625 upper cord hook?


There are various small parts that make up the hook. First insert the L bolt through hole in handle. Put cord holder on L bolt, put lock washer and nut on and tighten nut. Then put cord hook on L bolt followed by spring, large washer, lock nut and another nut. Snug nut up and test to be sure it will swivel.

It sounds like there's a problem between the power cord and the vacuum cleaner itself. Remove the power cord check the connection at the vacuum cleaner and see if something came unconnected

Splicing kirby electric cord


If you are unsure on how to splice the cord back together it may be best to just purchase a new cord. You can find a new G6 cord and it is easily installed into the switch at the base of the Kirby.

Can't hook up power cord to main motor on Hoover model F5915100


You have a black and white and green wire. Green is ground white is neutral, black is hot . Should say on the motor either L1 = black wire. L2 = white wire , G = Green wire or it say H = black wire, N = white wire , G or the symbol for ground = green wire

Top cord handle fell off


The spring is part of the silver power cord clip that you flip around at the top of the handle to release the power cord that has been stored in a coil sour the fixed position plastic hook at the bottom of the handle and this one at the top. There is a long silver screw that goes through a washer then through this clip. The clip is in two parts, the hook or clip that rotates and a saddle that is stationary against the handle. The spring then goes on the screw under the saddle and finally is skewed into the handle.

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.

Replaced Oreck power switch. 2 black leads and 1 white lead for switch. Posts marked 1, 2, and 3. 2 black wires to switch powers on. Connect white wire and breaker trips. Where does the white wire go?


Both black go to the switch. Power in - black to switch / white to white from motor.
From motor - black to switch / white to white from power cord
The black wire from the power hooks to the off end of the switch and the black wire from the motor hooks to the on end. Third post is not used. The two white wires are connected to each other with a small twist on wire nut.

Repplacing power cord on Hoover Wind tunnel (not self propelled)


I am thinking that the cord goes in on the back, just below the handle. Remove the handle, then from the front, remove the tool holder(#8), then you can get to where the cord comes in and hooks up.
