Well, I presume that you have two colors. Or perhaps three.

I am not familiar with your model, but Green is always ground, all whites go together.

That leaves black. Black it the hot wire, and wants to go to the switch FIRST. Then other blacks hook up to the output of the switch.


If you have twist wire connections, be sure to trim up and re twist. leaving no single strand out. Nice and tight.

The cord will not rewind


These get stuck all the time...I own 2 of these , and I have done this many times...Get a can of WD40 or some type of spray lubricant with the little straw in the nozzle. Try pulling and pushing the cord back inside(don't pull it too hard) while you are spraying the lubricant directly inside where the cord comes out. push the cord back in as if you were going to force all of it back inside the cord winder. You may even have to bump the back of the machine where the cord winder is located. But it will wind back up.If you are worried about getting the lubricant on something that it doesn't need to be on , then take the Vac apart and spray it directly on the the coils of the cord winder..A lot of times, that's all they do in the repair shop when they tell you they replaced the cord winder....

My power cord will not retract back into the housing< i would like to open the back of the unit but there no screws or bults to due so. How do you open the back of model c151d


Try standing vacuum on end, then gently tugging and releasing cord. This generally will retract it.
There are many problems that can result in disassembly and reassembly by an untrained person, including shock and fire. For those and other reasons, I don't recommend trying this yourself. Take it to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store for repair.
The back of the vacuum can only be removed by separating the top and bottom portions of the canister. The cord winder will need to be removed and the wires all disconnected. The cordwinder is then taken apart and the cord rewound and set for proper tension for rewinding. If the cord is simply stuck due to having been pulled out too far, this is generally not necessary.

Following old directions found online I opened an Electrolux Ambassador III to fix the cord winder. When reassembling, I found a loose white wire. Where should it be reconnected?


A white wire is part of the power wiring (neutral), but if the machine runs ok, it may be a left-over from previous work or original manufacturing. If the machine does not run now, then look obvious bare connectors to reinstall it. Hope this helps!

Have a miele S546 vac. and it won't turn on. Is there a fuse? Can the on/off switch burn out? Thanks.


If you vacuum wont turn on it is most likely the cord winder. This is a pretty big repair, you wouldn't want to attempt it yourself. Most shops should be able to repair the cord winder for about $50-75. If you need a new cord winder expect to pay about $150.

Vacuum not running; do I have to replace the cord winder or just cord?


Typically, the cord and winder are supplied as a unit.  It is possible to fit new cord to an existing winder, but the amount of labour involved will make the job more expensive than simply exchanging the complete unit.  Even if you're going to do the job yourself, it's simply not worth planning to just fit new cable (unless you are a masochist with unlimited time and patience).  Pay that bit extra for a complete unit - you'll be glad you did (or you'll be sorry if you don't!).

Won't start


It is most likely your cord winder. They are a little tricky to fix yourself. A repair shop will probably charge about $50. To fix it. The contacts where the cord winder plugs into the motor need to be cleaned and adjusted. Just don't let your repairman tell you that you need a new cord winder.

Hey guys ! I have (or my wife has) A KENMORE whispertone 116. When my wife is cleaning with it it will suddenly stops.She then wiggles/pulls on the cord and it starts again and the stops.I pulled the cord...


It definitely sounds like the cord winder is the problem. I can tell you how to take the machine apart, but it's just about impossible to rebuild that winder. When you take the winder apart the spring blows apart, and it's very dangerous. I won't be doing that again. lol Another option is to replace the winder and that is just not cost effective, and it will go bad again.

You could just take out the winder and wire a regular cord in it's place if you want to save the vacuum. You can tie the new cord in couple knots to keep it from pulling out of the unit.

As for taking the machine apart, you probably found the two screws under the hood. Sometimes they hide others under the hepa filter, but the really hard ones to find are under the cord retract button. You have to pop that off to access them.

Hope this helped. Good Luck

Retractable power cord


JUST LIFT OFF THE TOP HALF. CAREFULLY REACH IN FROM THE LEFT SIDE AND DISCONNECT THE CLEAR PLASTIC HOSE THAT IS ATTACHED TO THE "DIAL" ON TOP OF THE MACHINE. THEN LAY THE TOP HALF OF THE MACHINE TO THE RIGHT. DON'T DISCONNECT ANY WIRES. YOU'LL HAVE TO HAVE A NEW CORD WINDER (LOOK ON E-BAY). THE MOTOR AND CORD WINDER ARE ATTACHED TO EACH OTHER BY WIRES AND CAN BE LIFTED OUT OF THE CANISTER.EVERYTHING YOU DO JUST REMEMBER THAT ALL OF THESE PARTS ARE ATTACHED TO EACH OTHER BY WIRES. THE ONLY WIRES YOU'LL NEED TO DISCONNECT ARE THE ONES ATTACHED TO THE CORD WINDER ASSEMBLY. THEY JUST PULL OFF, NO TOOLS ARE NEEDED.
QUITE FRANKLY THIS IS A ROYAL PAIN AND YOU'LL PROBABLY WISH YOU TOOK IT TO A REPAIR (AERUS/ELECTROLUX) SHOP. IF YOU DECIDE TO DO IT YOUR SELF TAKE PICTURES OF EVERY STEP...'CAUSE YA GOTTA PUT IT ALL BACK TOGETHER.
GOOD LUCK!
