vacuum cleaner repair?

This answer was rated:

Also I'd like to know an idea of what it's likely to cost if I can have it repaired at a repair shop.


And, if I can do it myself, as I'm usually pretty good at such things, would I have to take it completely apart to do so?


Would you be able to provide any guidance on doing it myself?



Yes it is fixable and yes you can do it. Just open the vacuum up and expose the wiring. Cut the bad portion off and trim back the coating of the good wires, attach the wires together using wire nuts and black electrical tape. You can most likely get another rubber/plastic grommet at a local hardware store to replace the one that pulled out. This should take care of the issue.

Any idea of what it should cost for a vacuum repair shop to do this?


I have taken it somewhat apart before, and this particular vacuum was not so easy to put back together. I don't want to do it unless getting it fixed costs more than $40.

It will cost anywhere from $30-$75 depending on your location
