You'd want the repair dealer to replace the cord, they're authorized and trained to do it - there's electricity involved and you don't want to make a mistake, it'll void the warranty of your machine (if you still have one) but more than that, you can cause serious harm to yourself. Call the Dyson helpline, they'll find the closest authorized repair dealer in your area to you.

I need to replace the plug in cord on my rowenta iron. I would replace but I paid $130 for iron and my cats have chewed on the cord so I thought it "might" be a simple replacement.


This is the second cat-chewed-a-wire question tonight.

The only thing to do is to replace the entire cord. You could cut out the chewed section and splice it with **** connectors and electrical tape, but you have a nice iron with a 12' cord. I believe Rowenta uses Torx screws on their irons.

Rowenta has customer support and a list of service centers online:

If you are in the U.S., go to:

http://www.rowentausa.com

and then click on the 'CUSTOMER SERVICE' link on the gray bar below center of the page.

In the 'After Sales Services' column, click on 'Service Centres' and look for one close to you. Perhaps you can order a new cord and use the old cord as a chew-toy decoy.

Good luck from Detroit, MI.

Our puppy chewed through the cord on our Rainbow. we paid $45 to have the cord replaced, got it home and it still will not turn on. Any ideas? Thanks!


The service tech who replaced it didn't know what he/she was doing. That's my first guess. If it was working before the puppy chewed through the cord, then if the cord was replaced, it should work. That leads me to believe the cord wasn't installed correctly. Take it back and have them redo it, then make sure it works before leaving the shop.

How to replace electrical cord on Dyson ball vacuum cleaner. Our puppy chewed it.


Depending on where it has been chewed, you may not need to replace the whole of your cord. Ask your local electrical supplier, or possibly somewhere like B & Q, if they have an 'inline' plug and socket to repair your existing cord.this would resemble the type of plug and socket used to connectd the power chord to a lawnmower, except you would not be buying the sealed type.Then you could simply cut out the chewed part of your ccord, and fit the two new ends, one the plug and the other the socket.It is no more difficlt than fitting a new domestic 13 amp plug on a cable.It is also a safe but much cheaper solution, so you should save money too.

Fliter queen repair


Hi there,
I generally don't like answering questions like this cause it could lead to unwanted problems. But I will say that if the individual wires are color-coded (each wire is a different color and can easily be determined which go to which) and you are handy with some electrical tape and know about how to make wires connect, then you may be able to do this yourself.

If you are NOT able to determine which wires go to which wire, I definitely do NOT recommend you trying to this yourself.

If it is obvious to you which wires go to which, splice them to clean edges, connect metal to metal, wrap two connecting wires tightly with electrical tape, then once all wires are wrapped to one another, bunch all together and wrap all with electrical tape. That's it.

It's fairly simple, but again, YOU MUST, I STRESS MUST be able to distinguish which wires match which wires from the detached (thanks to dear sweet puppy) wires. :) Bad puppy!

Hope this helps at least some. A good repair person shouldn't charge that much to do it for you.

Best, Jenn

My puppy chewed the cord to my dyson, is it easy to fix?


Very easy, if you don't care how pretty it is. All you need is a sharp knife and some electrical tape. Use the knife on each end of the cord to expose 1/2" of copper wiring, twist them together, cover each wire separately with tape, then wrap several turns of tape around the whole thing.

Dog chewed cord on bissell model 6579-2 how do I replace 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.
