Give me a little input on what you have-- such as:

Does the machine have a built-in-re-coil winder?-- Or do you have to wind the cord around the machine, when you wrap it up-- at the end of your vacuuming? (Obviously the latter will be much easier to replace! :-) )

May I ask WHY the cord needs to be replaced?

and what tools will you have on hand to do this job?
We are going to need small hand tools, -- Plus it would help to have a little multi-tester.

Let me know-- and I'll be able to help you to the next step.

How do I take about my Dyson DC11 to replace the retractable power cord assembly


While it doesn't require a collection bag, a Dyson-brand vacuum cleaner can still suffer the problems of wear and tear that are prone to any vacuum cleaner--for example, a frayed power cord. If the power cord of your Dyson vacuum cleaner has become frayed, change it immediately to avoid a dangerous electrical mishap. You will need a replacement cord from an electronics service center, along with a few common household tools. You do not need electrical skills to complete the task.
Follow this steps on how to replaced the power cord assembly:

1 Unplug the Dyson vacuum cleaner's power plug from the wall outlet. Press the button on the top front of the plastic collection cover. Lift the cover off the front of the vacuum cleaner and place it aside.

  • 2 Trace the power cord to where it enters the back bottom of the vacuum cleaner. Remove the screws from the panel surrounding the power cord with a Phillips screwdriver. Remove the panel. Aim the beam of a flashlight inside the compartment so that you can see where the wires at the end of the power cord wrap around two screws on the motor assembly. Loosen these screws with a Phillips jeweler's screwdriver.

  • 3 Pull the power cord out of the compartment and dispose of it properly. Strip a 1/2 inch of insulation from the ends of the two wires of the replacement power cord. Run the wires into the compartment along the path of the original power cord--pushing the wires into the grooves inside the compartment.

  • 4 Tie a knot on the cord on the inside of the compartment to prevent the cord from being pulled out.

  • 5 Wrap the exposed end of each wire of the power cord around the loosened screws. Tighten the screws. Replace the panel and reattach the screws. Stand the vacuum cleaner right side up. Place the bottom of the plastic collection cover into the bottom front slot on the vacuum cleaner. Push the cover back on the front of the vacuum cleaner.

    The lead on our machine is becoming frayed - is it possible to replace the lead and if so, how is it achieved? John Tuffley


    If you are refering to the Electrical Power Cord? Yes, this can be easily replaced or repaired.
    Depending upon where the cord is damaged, you can either cut it a little shorter and install a replacement electrical plug end (available at any electrical parts store (Lowes, Home Depot, Radio Shack, etc) for about $2.50.
    Or if the cord is damaged near the vacuum, you can purchase another cord or even make up one yourself how ever long you want it within reason.

    What is easiest way to replace electric cord that has frayed at entrance to the vacuum?


    I would take it to a qualified repair shop for this type if repair. Without knowing the specifics, most vacuums have a strain relief that needs to be squeezed and pryed out. Once this is out the cord can be replaced, but will need to have the correct type of electrical connectors and tools to make the connection. Most cords cost about $15 - $20

    Dog chewed cord on bissell model 6579-2 how do I replace it?


    You can cut the bad section of wire out of the cord, cut the insulation on the cord to get to the wires. Match your colors, strip the insulation from the individual wires and twist together. Wrap each wire with electrical tape (making sure no wire is exposed, can be a fire hazard), then wrap the cord with electrical tape. The cord will be a little shorter, but should work fine.

    Electric cord won't retract


    Depends on the machine. If its a Sebo K model then usually pulling on the cord will re-automatically retract the cord anyway. Any other brand and it will need to be replaced by a qualified repair.

    Broken electrical cord


    The belt can e replaced but I recommend you should take it to your local vacuum cleaner service center. They may even be able to fit a new plug on the end for you if the damage is at the plug end.
