Hope one of you many experts can help me out. I have repaired my Lux cord real several times. The problem is that the cord retracts in slowly and up to a certain point. The whole cord does not fully retract fully into the machine. I have taken it apart and re attached the coil on some instances and many times just tried to adjust the coil too. I have also tried leaving a little tension on the real when I close the machine up. The retracting may work for a month and then I have the same problem.

This leads me to my question that I hope someone can help me with.

1. When attaching the coil to the small wheel I know there is a place that the coil attaches to the small wheel. How many times should the coil go around the wheel?

2.How much tention should be on the real once the machine is closed up?

Am I missing anything?

Try Cord "Reel"....Real is the opposite of fake.
