Question about Vacuums
Hi, the cord retractor reel in my Hoover Dimension 1000 (Model S3281) needs to be freed up. How does the rear plate on this vacuum come off so I can gain access to the cord reel?
GET TO THE REEL AS FOLLOWS:
(BEFORE YOU START, BE SURE TO UNPLUG THE DIMENSION FROM THE OUTLET)
1). TURN VACUUM OVER AND USE A FLAT-BLADE SCREWDRIVER TO WEDGE/SLIDE THE WHEELS OFF (PUT THE SCREWDRIVER BLADE BETWEEN THE LITTLE BLACK WHEEL BRACKET PIECE AND THE GREY CHASSIS OF THE VACUUM AND SLIDE/WIGGLE THE WHEELS OFF);
2). THE 2 DEEP HOLES AT THE TOP OF EACH WHEEL RECESS LEAD TO 1-1/2" LONG PHILLIPS SCREWS >> UNSCREW THEM;
3). AFTER REMOVING ALL 4 SCREWS, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO EASILY LIFT OFF THE TOP OF THE REEL/MOTOR COMPARTMENT.
4). CAREFULLY LIFT AND ROTATE THE CONTROL PANEL TO THE SIDE.
5). THE REEL IS NOW IN PLAIN SIGHT.
6). I’M STILL TRYING TO FIGURE-OUT HOW TO SAFELY ACCESS THE GUTS OF THE REEL MYSELF. I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH INTERMITTENT VACUUM POWER AND ALSO WITH WEAK CORD RETRACTION.
ANYWAY, GOOD LUCK TO YOU !!!

That solved my Hoover Dimension 1000 Vacuum cleaner problem with the tangled cord issue. When I fixed that problem another arose now the cord will automatically rewind automatically without my intervention. A few parts fell off trying to figure out which one prevents the cord from rewinding into the machine automatically.

Alot of these Hoovers has a panel on the top, near the back that has some screws to take out, then that panel comes off. The motor and reel cord are under that cover.
