How to fix a broke cable inside a reel in Electrolux Ergospace ZE2262

Hi there, I took apart the vacuum cleaner, checked it with multimeter and found out that the cord is wrong, but the connection problem is inside the reel. However it looks like the reel cannot be taken apart and put together again(well it is written on it: Do not open, replace the whole thing.). The vacuum is old I won't buy a new reel, it'll cost more than new VC, but this one could work for a while more. Should I just take it apart and connect the cable with loosing the ability of rewind or is there a way to put it back again? I'm afraid that if I take it apart the spring will jump out of the case. Thanks.

If the vacuum runs well with no other problems it may be worth buying a new cord reel. It may be less expensive to purchase a new vacuum but it may not last as long as an older machine. I have many 10 to 20 year old vacuums brought into my store for routine maintenance. Do not try to replace the cord as you are correct, the spring come flying out.

SOURCE: 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!

Hi, I have replaced the electric cord on Electrolux Lux Royal vacuum, but the rewind that retracts the cord does not pull it in. The coil spring looks ok but it will not pull the cord back in, any suggestions please.
Thanks Dave Ryder


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
The question I have is it the Electrolux or the Royal cordwinder, if the cordwinder is sprung you may have to get a new one or a good used one, it’s been a while since I have done a cordwinder and I have seen it done, but I know when you remove the cordwinder you need to lock in the spring so that it does not loose it tension and re-coil ability. You may want to ask your local vac dealer to see if you need to repair or replace. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

SOURCE: 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.

The plug prong broke on my Electrolux Epic 6500 SR vacuum. I cut it off and was going to replace it with a new plug. However, I mistakenly rewound the cord and it went all the way into the body.


You will likely have to install a new cord reel. Cord reels have a long tightly wound steel spring which can fly out causing injury if you attempt to take it apart.

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..

My Ergospace Vacuum took some apple juice in and now it makes strange noice and even threw out some sparks. Is there anything I can do my self or is it over with this vacuum cleaner? I opened 6 screws, but...


Liquid plus electrical parts always ends up with the electrical parts losing. Juices, although they will dry, will leave behind a sticky residue. You'll need to replace at least the motor, but due to the other electrical components, probably be better off replacing the whole thing.

The hidden screws are beneath the control panel. There are two tabs beneath the panel cover. Using a thin bladed screw driver release these to pop of cover. You may need to use a flashlight to be able to see the tabs and make sure they get released. If the tabs break, the cover won't stay on. Under the cover are two screw that need to come out.
There are two more tabs in the bag well that need to be released. Remove the bag and at the top of the back of the tank you'll see two tabs. Do so with a screw driver. After this the top of the machine can be lifted off with some manipulating.
There are electrical motor spray cleaners you can use to try to get the residue off the motor, but it's doubtful you'll be able to remove it all.

Electrolux z4494 vacuum cleaner mains cable wont stay out


Opened up case as follows:
- Open lid of bag chamber. Remove lid by gentry prising the hinge arms slightly further apart so the hing unclips from the body.
2 deeply recessed screws now accessible at rear edge of bag chamber - undo.
Prise out large button of on/off switch to reveal another screw - undo
Prise out large button of cable retract to reveal another screw - undo.
Cover now lifts off.

Inside I found the brake wheel had fallen out of its plastic bracket. The plastic bracket is hinged, and moved my pressing one end with the big button, which lifts the wheel away from the cable drum. Gently prised the bracket arms apart and put the brake wheel back in.
Solved it - but don't know why it happened, or whether it is likely to happen again.

Electrical problem


May have broken the cord, in which case you will probably have to repace the reel cord asm. But you will have to take it apart to find out. Take off the bumper that gores around the cannister, there are 3 or 4 clips that hold the two halfs together.

Power Issue


Could be the cord reel causing the problem. Sometimes the contacks on the inside of the reel loose contact and won't conduct. If this is the problem, then you will have to replace the reel cord asm. Part # 06777540, may cost about $150 approx.

Depends on which model you have, but most of them you take off the center section, then you cab get to the 2 screws on top , and there is a screw on the bottom, then the back end will pull off. But I wouldn't try taking the cord reel apart, if that spring lets go while you are doing that, it could be dangerous. Also make sure that it isn't plugged in.

They aren't quality machines, they are made by Eureeka, not Electrolux. Aerus/ Electrolux is really the way to go!
