Hi there,

This will not be difficult to open, however, inside may scare you.

Remove your hepa filter cartridge (if you have one)
turn the machine over.
Undo the 6-8 screws there and pull the bottom off.
you should see everything there. If you are careful, just remove the old rewinder, and replace with the new one.

Good luck.
Mark

How to take cordwinder out of aerus 7000 power cord doesnt retract. so how do i get into the canister where the cordwinder is?


Set the vacuum on the table, bench, etc. on it's wheels, remove the bag and leave the compartment lid open. All internal components are accessed by removing the two rubber side bumpers on either side of the vacuum. This is done by sliding a wide blade screwdriver at the back of the bumper in between the bumper and the plastic rear of the vac and tapping forward with a rubber mallot. Just be careful.
After removing the two rubber side bumpers, turn vacuum over on it's back and pull the bottom off but only after pulling about 2 feet of the retractable cord out for clearance. You may then access the cordwinder to replace. I have replacement cordwinders available for you.

I have an Electrolux Guardian Canister vacuum. The power cord was damaged but the cord winder still works fine. I have ordered a replacement cord and need to know how to remove the old cord and install...


I strongly suggest allowing a qualified service tech at an authorized Aerus Electrolux store take care of this. The disassembly and reassembly of the tank and cordwinder are tricky and complicated and incorrect reassembly can cause serious problems. Even to the extent of permanently damaging your vacuum, or worse, result in a shock hazard or fire.

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.

How do I repair my Electrolux Lux 9000 cannister electrical cord retraction? It was pulled out as far as it would go and now it doesn't retract.


First, try standing vacuum on it's back end. Gently pull on cord and release. Try this a few times.
If this doesn't work, you'll need to take it to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store and let the service tech repair it. Although it's relatively easy to disassemble, reassembling correctly is trickier. I've had several machines come into the shop disassembled because the owner couldn't figure out how to put it together again.
Also, when taking the cord rewinder apart, there's a risk of breaking tabs that hold it together.

Eletrolux lux7000 manu and how to retract the power cord?


For the user's/owner's manual, go to the below link, click on the arrow below where it says "Older Models", click on Lux 7000, click on "download". If you want a service manual, they are only available to Aerus Electrolux stores.
For retracting the cord, try tipping vacuum up on it's back end and gently pulling and releasing cord. This will often cause it to retract. If not, keep in mind that the canister portion of this vacuum has a 7 year warranty on it, so depending on when you purchased it, the cordwinder may still be covered. The warranty does not cover normal wear and tear, or abuse. There are other things that will void the warranty.
