If you look closely, you can see a sahllow groove along the inside top of the handle. The curved portion of the static wire fits in that. One end fits in a hole just below the switch, the other end just goes down inside the metal post.

    Thanks that worked, wire didn't stay exactly in the groove, but mostly.

Top cord handle fell off


The spring is part of the silver power cord clip that you flip around at the top of the handle to release the power cord that has been stored in a coil sour the fixed position plastic hook at the bottom of the handle and this one at the top. There is a long silver screw that goes through a washer then through this clip. The clip is in two parts, the hook or clip that rotates and a saddle that is stationary against the handle. The spring then goes on the screw under the saddle and finally is skewed into the handle.

My dog chewed the plug completely off my Bissell vacuum, model 61C5-W. Can I fix it myself, and where can I find the replacement cord?


The power cord should be a standard 3 wire cord. Any hardware store. Just buy the length you want. You will have to remove some covers/plastics to get to where the cord connects inside the vacuum. Look for screws holding panels in place. Once inside, you'll see how the cord is attached. Just replace the old with the new. Not critical which of the flat prong wires goes to + and - but be sure the ground wire (usually copper) goes to the ground screw and not a hot connection.

There are 2 tabs on the bottom front edge of the switch plate which slide under the metal top cover. Make sure these tabs have not gotten bent upward so they will not slide under the top cover. If they are bent, simply pry them open. Also, note that the handle pivot has a sliding latch on it to allow the handle to be fully lowered. To lower the handle flat, push the little knob inward.

If you got the handle apart, Id say you can probably fix it yourself. You might be able to patch it but I would say to maximize your effortrs please visit RepairClinic.com to find the exact replacement parts you need. They also have expert advice and guidance available.

I hope this works for you.

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.

Brush not working when the handle is reclined


Sonds like you have a problem with the self propel switch in the handle. Since you didn't provide a specific model number, I can only give you generic information on what might be the problem.. Here is a link for a hoover upright model ( may or may not be yours) but it does show the switch in the handle that does sound like your problem... http://www.hoover.com/pdfs/manuals/U6634900.pdf If you can provide a specific model, perhaps I can provide specific details on the repair.. Good Luck !

Hoover Model S3281, disassembly instructions


GET TO THE REEL AS FOLLOWS:

(BEFORE YOU START, BE SURE TO UNPLUG THE DIMENSION FROM THE OUTLET)

1). TURN VACUUM OVER AND USE A FLAT-BLADE SCREWDRIVER TO WEDGE/SLIDE THE WHEELS OFF (PUT THE SCREWDRIVER BLADE BETWEEN THE LITTLE BLACK WHEEL BRACKET PIECE AND THE GREY CHASSIS OF THE VACUUM AND SLIDE/WIGGLE THE WHEELS OFF);

2). THE 2 DEEP HOLES AT THE TOP OF EACH WHEEL RECESS LEAD TO 1-1/2" LONG PHILLIPS SCREWS >> UNSCREW THEM;

3). AFTER REMOVING ALL 4 SCREWS, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO EASILY LIFT OFF THE TOP OF THE REEL/MOTOR COMPARTMENT.

4). CAREFULLY LIFT AND ROTATE THE CONTROL PANEL TO THE SIDE.

5). THE REEL IS NOW IN PLAIN SIGHT.

6). I’M STILL TRYING TO FIGURE-OUT HOW TO SAFELY ACCESS THE GUTS OF THE REEL MYSELF. I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH INTERMITTENT VACUUM POWER AND ALSO WITH WEAK CORD RETRACTION.


ANYWAY, GOOD LUCK TO YOU !!!
