Power cord leaks green oil


I suggest that you replace that corroding internally power cord. It may not be safe to use that power cord.

You can get your model information, at the bottom of your vacuum canister, from underneeth, where the water pan attaches to it.

It is probably a D3, or a D4

If you have any more questions let me know. I am a Rainbow seller, and a Rainbow expert also.

Thank you,

Cord is stuck out full length


Not sure if you're posing about the Hoover since you're in the Hoover S1361 forum, or the electrolux.

I had similar frustrating problems with my hoover and made a blog post on how to take it apart and fix it here.

The vacuum does not turn on when plugged in.


It could be either the switch, the motor, or the cord reel. Try plugging it in and slowly feeding the cord in and out while clicking the power switch on and off. If the motor kicks on while doing this, you have an intermittent short in the cord reel.

If you remove the bag chamber lid, (on the s300 series merely opening it until it makes an awful cracking sound, and then lifting it off; on the s500 series you'll have to gently pry the tab just inside the hinge away,) you will be able to access the screws to remove the rear housing. Under the exhaust filter are two screws that will allow you to remove the control unit, and then there are about five screws on the top that will need to be removed if you need to go further.

The control unit contains the switch, (in many models, but it depends on your model...) which you can test continuity through by using a VOM. If the switch checks out ok, you can test continuity through the other electrical components on the underside of the control unit. If you find a component that does not have continuity, replace it. If they all appear functional, continue with the disassembly:

On the s300 series it is easiest to flip the machine upside-down after removing the top screws, and then lifting the base away from the top housing. This will give you access to the motor and the cord reel. On the s500 series you will just have to lift the colored plastic body up and away from the base.

What can occasionally happen with these cord reels is that they can wear out, allowing too much lateral slop of the actual reel assembly. You can shim this by using something on the axle in the center to push the reel assembly back against the contacts. I use a small rubber "doughnut," but pretty much anything non-conductive will do the trick.

If this doesn't restore electrical continuity, you'll probably need a new cord reel. I highly recommend against trying to do any further repairs on the cord reel itself, as it's a nightmare to deal with... especially if the main spring comes apart. Miele does not recommend replacement of any component of the cord reel, only the entire cord reel assembly.

Any other problems will have to be referred to a repair station, since it could then be either the motor or the motor control board.

Do NOT attempt to test the motor by directly connecting it to wall voltage, as the actual power applied to the motor when it is functioning is stepped down by the circuits attached to it, and attempting to "hotwire" it will fry the motor.

Hope this helps,

Pwr cord rewind reel


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!
