You have to pop the grey button off for the cord rewind. There is one more screw under there. You have to be very careful, because you can break one of the tabs that hold the button on. In fact, it is almost a garuntee. There are three tabs that stick off the button that hold it in place on the orange hood. There's a long tab about 3/4 inch long on the inside corner of the button you need to be careful of. Good luck!

You can go to the Sears Parts Direct website and type in your Model number. It will return both an exploded view and parts list, with pricing for replacement parts. You can also order from them, and they can tell you stock status as well.

SOURCE: Bosch cannister vac: Cord is stuck--won't rewind

It probably is, these cords are usually 15-25' long ;-)
What you can asssume is that the cord is simply twisted upon itself and doubled up so cannot easily come out, and will not go in... therefore.
Pull gently on the cord and twist in a clockwise direction. Does the cord seem to get a bit longer? If not, or if it gets tighter, try counterclockwise. If you keep trying eventually it will loosen and you can fully extend the cord. Compare this to holding a piece of string between your hands by the thumb and index fingers. Hold one end still and twist the other 20 times (twisting the string). then relax the string between your hands. See how it immediately forms a loop? That is the problem with your cordreel too. There is a loop in there that we need to undo. Now pull a bit so you can still see the loop, and then start untwisting to see what happens. You can also do this with a YoYo ;-)

Be patient, observe, sensitize your tactile senses and see if you can figure out which direction loosens your cord - and get it out ;-)

Good Luck
Hopefully you wont have to take it all apart. that cordreel spring is very strong. Be careful if you do go in there.

Kenmore Progressive canister vacuum cord rewinder is "jammed." How can I fix it myself? Thank you! dan :)


It has to come apart to fix that. I wouldn't recommend doing that yourself, as you will probably break it. Take it to your local vac shop for repair.

Remove the 5 Phillips-head screws carefully without stripping the heads. There are 2 at the front bottom, 2 at the top back (above the wheels), and 1 at the back beneath the dustbin. After the screws are loosened/removed, you can remove the top cover of the vacuum (be careful with the attached wiring harness). Then remove the black plastic cover over the cord rewind wheel, and you can easily remove the wheel. Pull the cord out a bit to give yourself some slack. You should be able to free the jammed cord and then reassemble the vac.

Also have a Kenmore Model 116. Power retractor not holding cord


The cord winder on these is spring loaded and has cog which is meant to lock with every full rotation of the spool the cord winds onto. It is tricky to work on.
Try pulling a bit more slowly and see if the rewind will stop.
The back housing on top of the vac needs to be removed to access the rewind. The housing snaps into place at the back corners, generally must be carefully pried and popped off by someone familiar with the vac. Some models may also have 2 screws under the lid in the bag area.

Kenmore progressive canister Sweeper


I figured it out ..by pushing the lever down and pry a screw driver into three different spots on the top, to release the rewind bar. Looks like three little j hooks hold it down. It took a flashlight and night time for me to see it.

Most of these you have to take off the cover on the back end where the cover retrack button is. Usually it has a catch, 2 on each side, use a screw driver, pry up near each corner to release it, then you can get to the cover over the moter and cord reel. Remove the 2 screw and put up and out.
