Vacuum parts are not easily accessed. To help you get started on this replacement, I located a similar question from a previous expert post. I also attached your manual for additional info on your vacuum. If you need parts, you can also check the Sears Parts Direct link below. Hope this helps make the project easier.

Thank you for your question.

I can understand wanting to repair you canister vacuum reel cord assembly.

I have given you some pictures below on the removal of the hood and motor canopy to get to the reel cord assembly.

If sounds like you will need a new reel cord assembly but if you are mechanically inclined you may just have to replace the cord and contacts.

The complete cord reel part number is; 8195114 and the cord and contact part number is; 4370695.

I would suggest that for $6 more you can get the whole reel cord assembly and will not have to mess with what can be a little tricky to fix just the contact and cord kit.

You can purchase this from;

Sears Parts Direct


I hope this will help
