Even if you get it apart chances are it needs a new spring but it requires a special tool to get the rubber molding off that separates the top from bottom and sears repair guys and vacuum shops have them. I would take it to a used vac store and get them to fix it before you try yo remove the rubber seal as it will not go back on well and that will cause the machine to not get aproper seal and lose airflow.

Dear Technician, I have a problem with my cord to retract back in the canister vac. Would you please help with this problem solution. ...


Try tilting the vacuum so the front is at about a 75-90 degree angle to the back. Gently tug and release cord. This will usually retract the cord.

How do i open canister for cord retract repair


There are four screws under the lid, and there are two additional screws under the face plate for the controls display. You'll need a thin, flat blade screw driver to "pop" the face plate off. The two additional screws that you are looking for are deeply recessed about the bracket-nozzle park.

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.

Electrolux Lux 7000 retractable power cord


The trim pieces along the sides just pull off seperating the two housings. The back portion where the retract drum is is held by two plastic tangs on top inside. use a screwdriver to pry the ring down to dislodge the tangs. the bottom part will lift off. remove the front part using two screws just below the hinge. the retract has a long coil spring wound around a free spinning hub. there are two "tangs" inside that engage a ratchet-pawl assembly. you'll need to rotate the drum to rewind the spring onto its hub.
