Ok as you all know I have been having many problems with my motor recently. Well I had purchased another motor that "ran" a couple months ago well let's just say it isn't running. I broke the pull cord a couple weeks ago and I decided I would take the pull cord out of the other motor and put it on my "new" motor. I had the "bright" idea of just taking the pin out of the thing that holds the cord and just pulling the cord out. Well that didn't work so go so I had to take the whole assembly apart. When I did that the spring came out and is now expanded. How can I go about putting it back on? Thanks for the help. BTW I did get the pull cord on the other motor so maybe it will actually work. I'll try it out on Friday morning on Hoover. Thanks everyone.
