Depending on where your tear is, you can follow just a few steps to help you out. If your tear is a couple inches from either end (like in the middle or close to it) all you need to do is cut out the part that is torn. Once that is done, carefully cut some of the outer plastic back (so that it reveals the actual wires on the inside). Make sure you take that step slow, as to not cut all the way through, just cut through the outer layer. After that, twist the metal wires on the inside together, then cover the exposed metal wires with electrical tape (be generous with the tape so you don't shock yourself in the future. Wrap around 3 to 4+ times)
Tools: Electrical tape Scissors
Hope this helps! :] Good luck!

Can I replace the jack that my puppy chewed off


The puppy probably chewed off the plug. If the plug was molded on, it may be more practical to replace the entire cord assembly.

My puppy chewed the powercord to my tv, what can i do


Try a T.V. repair shop to see if they can replace the cord for you if it is no longer under warranty...and make sure puppy has plenty of rawhides or chew toys to gnaw on while teething. They can't help it. Those teeth need help breaking through.

Puppy chewed the cord. It is an internal cord and does not plug into the back of the tv. Can I replace it myself? Directions or diagram? Where is the best place to get the replacement cord?


Any polarized power cord will work----cautions: the cord where it connects inside will have either a white stripe on one side or a rough surface---that is the neutral side---replacement must be soldered to correct points---you get it backwards and set will work but shock hazard will exist-------if you have enough cord left you can do a splice repair-----I cut them back and offset so not next to each other(the two sides of the cord----get some heat shrink tubing--slide it over each side and down a ways---solder the two ends for each side back together (you will lose a little of the cord) and once soldered slide the shrink tubing down over the soldered parts and heat it with a hair dryer and it will shrink air tight over the solder connection's---you do not want the splices side by side to prevent any possible short----for extra protection once done use some black electrical tape and tape the whole area.

Either replace entire cord or splice repair it. Examine cord end to end for any bare wire showing---if chewed in more than one spot replace entire cord.

Our puppy chewed through the cord on our Rainbow. we paid $45 to have the cord replaced, got it home and it still will not turn on. Any ideas? Thanks!


The service tech who replaced it didn't know what he/she was doing. That's my first guess. If it was working before the puppy chewed through the cord, then if the cord was replaced, it should work. That leads me to believe the cord wasn't installed correctly. Take it back and have them redo it, then make sure it works before leaving the shop.

Our puppy chewed through the cord of our bread maker. Are cords replaceable or is the machine useless for good?


Yes cords are replaceable. Just show the hardware store what is left of your cord and they should be able to get a replace ment for you.

How to replace electrical cord on Dyson ball vacuum cleaner. Our puppy chewed it.


Depending on where it has been chewed, you may not need to replace the whole of your cord. Ask your local electrical supplier, or possibly somewhere like B & Q, if they have an 'inline' plug and socket to repair your existing cord.this would resemble the type of plug and socket used to connectd the power chord to a lawnmower, except you would not be buying the sealed type.Then you could simply cut out the chewed part of your ccord, and fit the two new ends, one the plug and the other the socket.It is no more difficlt than fitting a new domestic 13 amp plug on a cable.It is also a safe but much cheaper solution, so you should save money too.

My daugher has a small George Forman grill and her puppy chewed the cord to it. Is there somewhere we can have it replaced??? Thank you.


Any appliance shop can replace it for you or you could replace it yourself it is not hard to do. Or you could just repair it if he did not chew it off at the housing.

My puppy chewed the electric cord! Can i buy a replacement? Model GGR200RDDS


This should be an obvious one. If the cord is attached HARD, meaning you can't remove it, you have to buy a new unit. punish your puppy as you see fit. If the cord is removeable, meaning there is some sort of lock-in plug end to the cord to the cooking unit, OR a magnetic lock, you can most likely buy a new one. just call up the number for sales that should be printed on your owners manual somewhere. And if you tell me its not there, look harder. every company wants a sale. and you know the company name anyway. GEORGE FORMAN GRILL. Also you can splice the cable if its a chew in the middle. it takes some electrical know-how, but if a puppy chews in the middle, a pair of wire nuts and some electrical tape fixes it. talk to people in the know. CONTACT CONTACT CONTACT! :) The world is not at an end due to a fiesty puppy.

My puppy chewed on the cord; i can purchase a cord but how do I replace it


You'd want the repair dealer to replace the cord, they're authorized and trained to do it - there's electricity involved and you don't want to make a mistake, it'll void the warranty of your machine (if you still have one) but more than that, you can cause serious harm to yourself. Call the Dyson helpline, they'll find the closest authorized repair dealer in your area to you.
