Electrolux Central Vac Hose Clogged

Our hose is clogged with a paper towel just behind the handle. I can get it out so I wonder if it's possible to remove the handle? I pulled out the lock pin but don't know how to remove the handle from the hose.

Thanks for any help.

John,

There are several handle types. The pump style has about 8 phillips screws that hold the handle together. Make sure it is not connected to the wall as some have 120V cords or direct connect pins to supply power to a motor driven brush.

The two halves will separate and if it has slip rings the tube will lift up out with the hose.

If this is a low voltage hose, there are three tabs at the base of the handle you press in and pry out the end piece. You will need to remove the switch contacts before the hose will pull out. Remove the phillips screw that holds the switch trim in place and lift out. This will allow the cover to be removed to lift the contacts off the slip rings and the hose will drop out.

Hope this helps!

We have suction at the outlets but when we plug the hose in we have no suction at the carpet vaccuum head.


Is there suction at the end of the hose? If not, the hose is clogged. Generally the blockage is located near the handle, but sometimes at the other end. Occasionally, if something long, like a straw, is sucked up, it will get caught somewhere else in the hose that's impossible to get to.
You can try to hold the wand end of the hose directly to the CV tank and turning it on. This should clear the clog. If not, hold the handle end to the blower of a shop vac or canister and turn it on. The other end should be either in a large plastic bag, inserted in the in port of the vacuum, or directed outside.
If there is suction at the end of the hose, the most likely place for a clog is at the elbow on the power nozzle or just behind the brush. This can be cleared by using the handle of a wooden spoon or similar blunt object to push the clog back out toward the brush.

If none of these help, take the vacuum to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store for assistance.

I have an older model Electrolux central vac. When I put the hose into the wall outlet, the cannister comes on but there is no suction ? What is needed to correct this?


Three things are the most likely.
1. Since it's an older model, the hose is likely well worn and probably has leaks at each end where it attaches to the handle and connector at the other end. If this is the case, a new hose is needed.
2. A blockage in the hose. To check the hose for blockages, detach both ends and drop a coin down one end. Lift the hose a little at a time so coin drops out the other end. If it doesn't, there's a clog. It will probably need to unclogged at an authorized Aerus Electrolux store.
3. A dirty filter. This is probably the first thing to check for, since it's so easy. If it's dirty, it needs to be thoroughly rinsed under warm water. Then allowed to thoroughly air dry prior to use. For this reason, it's highly recommended that an ECV owner have an extra filter on hand.

Is there suction at the end of the hose, or is it just at the power nozzle there's none. If the hose has good suction, check the power nozzle airway. If it's blocked it can easily be cleared by pushing the clog back toward the brush with the handle of a wooden spoon, or other similar object.

Poor suction in system - I have used shop vac to suction all three receptacles. Have checked bag and cleaned everything. Still poor suction. I have one receptacle in garage that works perfectly. Must...


Have you checked the hose for clogs or leaks. Clogged and leaky hoses are an area of concern with any central vac. Unless you hose has a hose sock, then wear and tear from constant rubbing on floors and other surfaces will result in holes and cracks. Pulling the hose can also result in leaks where the hose attaches to the handle and intake connector.
Mix some dish soap with water.
Use shop vac to blow air through hose, with other end capped or "clogged".
Apply soap solution to each end of hose.
If bubbles form, this indicates leakage. Hose will need to be replaced.

Is there a second filter


You have not posted a brand, however central vacs with an internal hanging `self cleaning ` filter seldom contain another filter with the exception of Eureka or Kenmore which may have a secondary optional paper filter installed. Check the bucket and the gasket first. Eureka and Kenmore made by Eureka are prone to a defective gasket which disintegrates with wear. The bucket should sit snug on any unit with no play.
To test for proper suction check at the vac intake itself. If the suction is strong here and weak elsewhere your problem will be either a clogged vac line, a leak in a pipe or an inlet door sagging open, last of all a clogged or partly clogged hose.
Check your hose by dropping a coin through the handle and shaking it down to the other end. If a coin makes it through your hose is clear.
You can test each inlet with a numbered tissue and your hose. Mark one for each inlet and check the tank to see what made it through. If any fail to make it through, go to that inlet with another vac and draw the blockage backwards out the inlet. Then retest
Also listen for a hiss at each inlet with the hose plugged in elsewhere. The hiss indicates a leak behind the inlet in the wall. Check for worn seals or misaligned o rings in the backing plate where the inlet connects.
Last of all inspect the pie for possible cracks from impact . If you listen closely you will hear an audible echo along the pipe path (even within the wall) if a connection has separated or a pipe is damaged.
Please post back with what you find or if you need more help.

I need a new hose for my Electrolux central vac


Do you need a new powerhead too or only the hose? If you need a new powerhead than I would recommend looking at the Imperium Pro Elite Attachment set. It is an excellent quality powerhead and hose. If you only need a new hose than you will need to contact the Aerus because they will be probably be the only company who can sell you a hose that wil be compatible with your powerhead.

Clogged hose and can not get the handle off


The best way to fix this problem is to Stick the other end of the handle into the wall inlet making the nozzle contact the pin jacks of the wall inlet. You may need to work the clog back and forth by then plugging the hose in normally. Eventually you will be able to work the clog out of the hose.

If all else fails you should use a plumbers snake.
