My electric cord reel is not reeling in the cord. I get a buzzing noise, however, the wheel to reel To rewind it is not moving. Suggestions? I have the battery on a trickle charger now in the event that it’s low voltage unless anyone has any other suggestions.

A trickle charger will take forever to completely charge a depleted battery, try a serious charger and wait till it is charged.

Let us know if that fixes your issue. We have an electric cord reel and have never had a problem with it, but it's still good to know if your solution worked.

Could always get out your meter and verify voltage right at the reel.

A buzzing sound could also be a mechanical noise, such as a stripped gear in the reel's mechanism. One hopes that's not the case, of course.
