SOURCE: Electrolux Lux 7000 retractable power cord

I own an electrolux ambassador III i spent a lot of money on it and if it broke it i would take it to an authorized electrolux repair shop because it sounds easy to fix them but electrolux vacuums have a complicated wire system and it is easy to mix them up or break is worse then it is to begin with.

You will need to take the machine apart to correct this. Open the front of the canister and remove the bag. As you are looking at the front of the unit, there are two vinyl covered strips that run the length of the unit. Pull forward on these strips and then pull out so that the vinyl separates from the plastic underneath. Now grab the plastic strip with a pair of needle nose pliers and pull towards the front of the canister. These can be tough if the machine has never been opened up before, but pull as hard as you need to, to slide the strip out. Once both strips are out, turn the machine over, pull out on the sides of the bottom of the unit, and lift up. The bottom should come off relatively easily, and everything will be exposed. Now, assuming that the cordwinder isn't damaged, you should be able to wind the cord in by hand. Once it gets started it may start to retract automatically. Usually the spring just gets in a bind against the housing when it's over extended, and rolling it in by hand a little will free it up. Good Luck!!

SOURCE: cord retracted into canister-how to take electrolux apart to get it out

You will have to take the cover off...it should be held together my a few screws. Just lay out everything in the orde that you take it off so it is easier to reassemble.

Tie a knot in the cord so it can't retract.

Self clean and power lights flashing on electrolux


you either need new filters or you have a bad electronic board or possibly both. Most of these machines only last a couple of years. Not to discourage you, but do yourself a favor and don't buy another one. It's a chinese made Eureka with a lux label. Electrolux went bankrupt many years ago and Eureka bought the name. Miele, Sebo, Riccar, or Lindhaus are all better choices.

Cord will not retract


Tilt the front of the vacuum to a 45-90 degree angle. Gently tug and release cord until it retracts.
If this doesn't work, repair or replacement of the cordwinder is needed. For this the vacuum needs to be taken to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store.

Need to open the canister to get to the cord assembly of my Electrolux Lux 5000


Why do you need to get to the cord assembly?
If the cord will not retract, tilt the vacuum to about a 45 degree angle and gently tug and release cord. It will usually retract.
Due to problems ensuing from untrained persons attempting to reassemble the vacuum and having to take it to the shop anyway, I recommend not taking it apart.
If the above isn't the problem, please take it to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store for repair.

The retractable cord is all the way out and won't go back into the machine! How do we get the machine apart to fix this problem?


You shouldn't have to. Simply tilt the machine to 45 degree angle and gently tug and release the cord. From my own experience, this almost always works. It's possible it's due to a broken part, but not likely.
Also, the vacuum should still be under warranty. If it's disassembled by anyone other than an authorized Aerus Electrolux servich tech, the warranty is voided.

The cord won't retract, how do I fix it?


Hold the vacuum at a nearly upright position. Gently tug and release the cord near the vacuum. This should cause the cord to retract. If not, it may be a worn out spring or a broken piece on the cordwinder. If this is the case, it needs to be taken to an Aerus Electrolux store for repairs.

My power cord will not retract back into the housing< i would like to open the back of the unit but there no screws or bults to due so. How do you open the back of model c151d


Try standing vacuum on end, then gently tugging and releasing cord. This generally will retract it.
There are many problems that can result in disassembly and reassembly by an untrained person, including shock and fire. For those and other reasons, I don't recommend trying this yourself. Take it to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store for repair.
The back of the vacuum can only be removed by separating the top and bottom portions of the canister. The cord winder will need to be removed and the wires all disconnected. The cordwinder is then taken apart and the cord rewound and set for proper tension for rewinding. If the cord is simply stuck due to having been pulled out too far, this is generally not necessary.

Electrolux EL 7001 Oxygen 3 power cord continually retracts


The button has two parts - the inner part (button) and the outer part (surrounds the button). The press the outer part to deactivate (pop out!) the inner part.

It took me a while to figure this thing out, but I was glad the vacuum wasn't broken.

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.
