Hello I just purchased the above mentioned tool to try and clear a blockage with my shower. I feed the cable to it's end and could not wind it back in. I now need to figure out how to reconnect the metal snake it to the metal drum. There is no picture in the manual. Thanks in advance.
The cable in the smaller drain cleaners is not attached to the drum. What keeps it spinning is the weight of the cable in the drum. What you will need to do is pull a few feet out of the drain and push it back in to the drum, this should allow the cable to spin again and therefore feed itself the rest of the way out of the drain. I hope that this helps out.
