You should be able to find a replacement at a hardware store. Take the plug end with you to get any assistance in determining the cord wire guage.

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.

SOURCE: dog chewed power cord

you have to take the machine completely apart and get inside where the motor is.take the cover off there are 3 screws 2 on the left side behind the hose and 1 on the right side back by the wheel.that will take the covr off.now where the upright sets on the base you will see a ******** each side of the motor, take those off,that will seperate the upright from the base.now you have to open the motor housing,there are 4 screws 2 on the front side and 2 on the bach side that will expose the motor and the cord.take out the old cord and splice in the new one.then put it all back together in reverse of how you took it apart.please leave feedback

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Dog chewed off the plug. Can I replace the plug

You should be able to replace the plug, just follow the instructions on the replacement plug to insure you wire the proper polarity. Otherwise, you could create a potential for a shock. Not a good thing with a wet mop.

My dog chewed the plug off the power cord, is there a way to replace it. I love my dc-17 dyson animal


Yes. You can splice the cord together. But when you pull it it will want to separate, so when you splice it add something ...like a wire tie..super glue it to both sides before you tape the splice. If it is the whole cord you will have to take it apart and make new stripped ends and just remove the old piece..put the new end on. This is not as easy as it sounds, I have done it but I am handy with tools and a little common sense.A handy man can fix it for you.

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.

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.

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.
