    Hi:
    If you don't have any knowledge of electrical wiring, have a pro do it. Not something to mess with. If you feel competent, let me know at firehead@rogers.com and I can walk you through it

You can cut the bad section of wire out of the cord, cut the insulation on the cord to get to the wires. Match your colors, strip the insulation from the individual wires and twist together. Wrap each wire with electrical tape (making sure no wire is exposed, can be a fire hazard), then wrap the cord with electrical tape. The cord will be a little shorter, but should work fine.

My dog chewed the plug completely off my Bissell vacuum, model 61C5-W. Can I fix it myself, and where can I find the replacement cord?


The power cord should be a standard 3 wire cord. Any hardware store. Just buy the length you want. You will have to remove some covers/plastics to get to where the cord connects inside the vacuum. Look for screws holding panels in place. Once inside, you'll see how the cord is attached. Just replace the old with the new. Not critical which of the flat prong wires goes to + and - but be sure the ground wire (usually copper) goes to the ground screw and not a hot connection.

My dog ate the e cord ... how do i replace it?


Available replacement parts for your vacuum can be order online from this site:

http://canada.bissell.com/Products/p/pethaireraser/ak/replacementparts/Product.aspx

I don't see the power cord available but would recommend you contact the company through their Customer Support to see if a cord may be made availble; quite possible the cord for another model would be suitable.

Contact information can be found here: http://canada.bissell.com/Customer_Support.aspx

Thank you for using FixYa!

The cord is all chewed up. How do you replace the cord?


Vacuum cleaner power cords are just insulated wires. It should be fairly easy and inexpensive to replace. You did not give a brand or model number, but hear is a list of available vacuum cleaner power cords

Dog chewed on the power cord, how do I replace it?


I would try to find a repair shop to replace it as bissell does not currently offer replacement power cords (atleast not on their website) if your power cord is only chewed in one place you could always just splice it back together and use some electrical tape. sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Dog chewed cord
Posted by jnunez918 on Jun 20, 2008
My dog chewed through the power cord (luckily unplugged). Are there replacement parts available and I can't seem to find out to detach the cord from the unit.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. There are replacement parts available for the replacement of the power cord and to check your owner’s manual to see the schematics of the replacement of the cord. You can check with your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or you can call cust serv @ Bissell @ the phone # listed below. 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.
