8 comments on Flex 3401 VRG: Cord Fix and Replacement

  1. Travis says:

    Ivan, great writeup as usual…thank you! Where did you get the 50′ cord and/or what cord specs (gauge) did you use?

    • Ivan Rajic Ivan Rajic says:

      Thanks Travis. I got the cord at a local hardware store (not a known brand name) and it was the next thicker size than what Flex already has… it’s either 12 or 14, but I believe 14.

    Ivan, thanks! One more question, I noticed in your brush replacement article, the white wire (on original Flex cord) went in with the gray wire (right side) whereas here you show the black wire (non-Flex cord) going in with the gray wire (right side)…does it matter?

        Travis, believe it or not I was thinking about this exact thing as I was taking photos, for BOTH articles. Unfortunately I’ve replaced the cords a few times on my machines so I’m not sure anymore how they go. I don’t think it matters, but my advice is to remember how the original cord on the Flex is connected and do that.

    Ivan, it was white with gray. Thank you again for the replies and great posts! Keep it up brother!

    Have yall thought of doing a twist plug for the cord? for easier storage and for mobile stuff. It will fit the pelican better.
