How to Identify and Fix Common Vacuum Problems ?
Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced Vacuum Technicians :
Try and pull the cord firmly
all the way out
Should you find that the mains cord has tangled inside the machine and will not feed out, you could try a firm pull on the cable – this should untangle it. Pull it out until you see the yellow warning marker on the flex appear at the cord entry.
Hold the plug when rewinding onto cable reel. Do not allow the plug to whip when rewinding. To retract the cable, press the button firmly until it clicks and the cable rewinds.
Twisted Cord – Oftentimes we see that the rubber exterior of a cord is very twisted and disfigured by one of the ends of the vacuum. This is caused by the user either winding the cord from the plug to the machine or from the machine side to the plug with the plug still in the outlet.

Grab the cord between your thumb and index finger. Keeping a mildly firm grip, slowly and thoroughly pass the cord through your fingers, moving from the base of your headphones to the end where the jack is. Repeating this process 2-3 times should significantly untwist your headphone cord.
Unruly cords and wires have long been troublesome for robot vacuums. The spinning wheels, and brushes of robotic cleaners often wrap themselves around these obstructions. Minimize that risk by organizing and securing them. The less mess your cords and cables make, the less likely your vacuum will be tangled by them.
Robot vacuums are packed with sensors to help them avoid objects, and many advanced models can also judge if there is clearance to make it under furniture. But these features don`t always work as planned, and homes can have many different kinds of furniture with varying heights. So, sometimes robovacs get stuck.
What is a Vacuum with a Retractable Cord? A vacuum cleaner with a retractable cord is exactly how it sounds — a vacuum cleaner that has a cord that`s stored internally. Usually, these types of vacuums are designed to automatically retract the cord as soon as it`s unplugged from a power source.

Cord getting stuck, won’t come fully out.
Hi Karen. Chances are your cord has a kink in it which is preventing it from coming all the way out. Pull the cord out almost as far as it will come and then twist the cord one way or the other and pull to get the kink out of it. Once you have it all the way out you can start closest to the machine and smooth out the entire cord to be sure that the kinks are more or less permanently gone.
Miele Red Star model S314. Cord reel is stuck. About three feet of cord is out. The rest of cord is jammed inside machine? How do I get to where the cord reel is?
It is actually simple when I tell you, Here we go…
.First, open the lid and take the bag, and hepa filter out of the machine.
.With a slot screwdriver, pry the hinges of the bag door out a little and take the bag door off.
.You should see one screw holding the black black panel, remove that. When that is out, you can pull the black panel off. It will give a little resistance to you, do not be afraid of breaking it, it will come off.
.Next you will see 4 or 5 screws down the holes there, remove all of them and the final remaining red piece will come off. When you pull this off, it will have both the cord rewinder and the motor assembly attached to it. It will be heavy becasue of the motor. Before you pull out the cord rewinder, just have a look at it closely and you may be able to just fix it without removing anything else.
.good luck with it.
I can’t get the vacuum to **** and can’t get to the point of the clog. The pieces don’t come off. Also need to know how to get the filter piece off the machine.
Cord replacement I need to replace a damaged cord (the reel works). How do I get the top off so I can remove the back end? Once I get it off, will I be able to change the cord, or do I need to buy the whole reel assembly? (and thanks for the help – I love this site!)
You will probably have to replace the whole reel cord. Depending on your model, on each side, there is a bar in the middle that will slide off, then the 2 halfs will come apart. They will only slide in one direction. If an older model, there are screw on the top to remove the top panel, then remove the 2 screws on the bottom and the reel cord (which is the back end of the vac)will come off. Pay attention to where the wires go so you don’t hook them up wrong.
We have the water hooked up at the back of machine. there is a spout for the water to come in and fill the ice tray.but is does not. If we turn the water on it fills up the space under the ice basket. I keep getting red light and then the two smal llight one ice and one water come on. We can hear the motor trying to fill the ice try and then lights come on. Please help me this so I can use this product. It did not come with a manual.
The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn’t seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.
With the fill tube blocked with ice the water can drip down the back wall or drip into the ice bin or just stop up. You can use a hairdryer to thaw the tube out.

Have an older model Electrolux canister model. The electric plug is broken so I got a new plug to put on. When I cut the cord to replace the plug, the dang cord retracted into the unit. So how do I get access to the cord area so i can find the end to the cord!
.You have to open the vacuum cleaner and look for the wire..
.It is located inside the circular wheel, where it wind itself up..
.Don’t be afraid to open it, unless your willing to pay somebody just to install a 1$ part..
.Just always remember when taking the screws off and make sure you don’t lose any of them..
.Hope that helps you out!.
