How to Identify and Fix Common Vacuum Problems ?
Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced Vacuum Technicians :
Most vacuum models including brands like Oreck feature models with a 30-foot cord. A cord of this length allows vacuum users to maneuver around their home and complete cleaning needs with ease.
If you see a bare wire, stripped insulation, or wire shielding, that could be the source of the problem. Additionally, plug the cable in, then wiggle the cable at both ends. If the charger works intermittently as you move the cable, the cable`s copper wiring is damaged.

.Hi, I have replaced
.Posted by dryder on May 02, 2008
.Hi, I have replaced the electric cord on Electrolux Lux Royal vacuum, but the rewind that retracts the cord does not pull it in. The coil spring looks ok but it will not pull the cord back in, any suggestions please.
Thanks Dave Ryder
.I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
.The question I have is it the Electrolux or the Royal cordwinder, if the cordwinder is sprung you may have to get a new one or a good used one, it’s been a while since I have done a cordwinder and I have seen it done, but I know when you remove the cordwinder you need to lock in the spring so that it does not loose it tension and re-coil ability. You may want to ask your local vac dealer to see if you need to repair or replace. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

If you keep that in mind then……
One of the most important rules in the universe is “If it was put together it can be taken apart”. I take my vacuum apart just for fun. I will use as an example the most common type of vacuum, an upright bagless. You will need to remove the lower unit. You will find after the top section has been removed four screws, (two on each side), holding the upper section to the lower with two plastic half circles clamps. In most newer vacuums of this type these are the only things holding the two pieces together aside from the hose. The motor housing is usually held together by several screws. Once you get the upper and lower sections separated you will be able to gain access to the screws.
Probably the most important thing I can tell you is to keep track of the screws. Use a piece of styrofoam draw a shape of a vacuum on it and press the screws into it in the area that they came out.
If you need more specific instructions you will have to clarify this with the exact make and model.
Hope this helps.
