40 meter Hozelock auto reel would not lock when winding back into the drum.
1, Make sure the Hozelock hose has fully retracted into the drum.there should be no tension on the hose reel spring.
2, Use a Black & Decker Workmate.
3, Carefully opened the side cover taking out all of the Torx screws (10 in total) remove handle.
4, Turned the reel over and placed the auto reel onto the Black & Decker Workmate.
5, Placed a socket into the Workmate vice then line up the centre shaft bolt on the auto reel onto the socket, this will hold the steel spring in place so that I could undo the 2 security Torx screws. Slowly remove the 2 screws- there will be a little spring tension when removing the 2 screws, take care.
6, Lever up the centre shaft up out of the reel to expose the internal hose reel, take note the rotation of the plastic cog inside the cover.
7, Remove the brake locking arm from the side cover.
the arm had broken in half, I used a soldering iron to weld the two halves of the brake lever back together.
8, Rebuild in reverse order.
8, When rebuilding the auto reel use the ratchet and socket to tension the steel spring, I unwound the hose out of the drum then slowly wound the spring using the ratchet and socket. This wound in the hose onto the drum up to the hose stop then a couple more turns on the ratchet for a little more tension.
9, Whilst holding the ratchet keeping the tension on the spring. Replace the 2 security screws on the centre shaft .
10, This link on Youtube I found very helpful (46 sec into video) you can see the internal working and the brake lever.

Hozelock Auto Reel


I took it apart by unscrewing the 2 halves of the plastic cover making sure the hose was fully wound up as the spring mechanism can be dangerous. Extreme care must be taken. I can now get lubrication on to the spring. The manufacturers will not tell you how to do this due to health and safety rules.

Auto-stop malfunction and stuck cassette door


Hi I'm not familiar with your particular model, but the auto stop problem is common and is usually the result of a slipping drive belt, or bad idler/reel drive. The auto-stop works by popping a small tooth like plastic or nylon piece attached to an arm, when you runout of tape and takeup reel pulls the tape tight. The auto-stop mech can get contaminated with dust, and not work, or the reel for some reason does not pull the tape tight enough to fully engage that piece and the result is a ticking sound. As the deck now has your tape, I suspect the main drive belt is broken or probably slipping, and all will work fine if it is replaced. Although changing the belt is not difficult, you should probably take it to a repair shop, as getting the right size is important, and the deck may have to be dismantled to change it. Hope this helps, good luck!
