Kenmore Canister Vacuum Model 116.23912300 Hose Connection Pipe (KC92PBZTZV06)

The base of my hose connection pipe broke where it snaps into the body of the vacuum. I patched it with tape and it worked for a while, but now the whole vacuum has stopped working. Since the controls are on the hose, I think the problem is with the connector pipe. I have ordered the hose connection pipe (KC92PBZTZV06)...but don't know how to take the hose apart to install the new part.....Can you help me? I'm pretty handy, but there's a trick to this that I don't know.

This is the part.

    Yes, of course I checked the manual. It doesn't cover this repair.

    Please direct my question to a vacuum expert!

  • amiability Nov 01, 2008

    I removed the rubber cuff around the elbow and have been working with a vice and two screwdrivers to pinch the tabs, but have been unable to remove part 9... Is there anyone around who has done this before?

    I appreciate the "keep it simple" sentiment. Believe me, I'd rather not bother, but thrift and the potentially needless disposal of a product that will not breakdown in landfill...compel me to try. I love this vacuum! I haven't found it's equal elsewhere. My new husband came with a cat...and it's hair and tracking litter is getting ahead of us now that this vac is out of commission.

To remove the cover. There are two tabs on the connection pipe that hold the hose connector onto the connection pipe, one on each side located on the section of the connection pipe just next to where it bends. They are visible under the lip of the cover if you gently pry up the cover on each side. You have to use two flat-bladed screwdrivers, one for each tab, and gently pry the cover over these tabs, working simultaneously on both tabs. The cover will then slip off onto the hose. Next, pull off the three wire connectors from the hose wires. After that you should be able to lift the hose wires out of the grooves they are in. There are also two latches on the connection pipe that help hold the hose on. Gently raise these without breaking them as you work off the hose. Remove the old hose from the connection pipe. Slip the new hose onto the connection pipe. The latches will hold the hose onto the connection pipe. Be sure you follow the color code on the wires to match the new hose wires to the connectors on the connection pipe. Push the wires back into the groves on the connection pipe. When everythings is sitting snugly against the connection pipe, you should be able to slip the hose connector cover back on the connection pipe and lock it over the two tabs.

good luck.

feel free for further queries.
thanks

    Thanks, that really did work great for getting the connection pipe off. Now I've been trying for the past half hour to get it back on, very frustrating!! It all goes well until you try to get the two tabs to lock back over the connection pipe flanges. I'm tempted to see if I can buy a pair of snap ring pliers big enough to get the tabs pulled apart simultaneously!

I put a tiny bit of liquid soap on the tabs and connection pipe flanges. I was then able to wiggle the tabs over the flanges.

Hello there,

Can you see the round strip between part 9 and part 10, that is a lock.

That means that you need to rotate parts to unlock it.

I think part 9 must be rotated anti clockwise, try both.

If it really got stuck in all this years and part 9 brakes, change the hose connection as well, (part 9) , it costs only $5.

Let me know.

Check out the solution at this website. It has some blogs that you can read that can help you: http://www.howtomendit.com/answers.php?id=25754
A littlehint of advice: The tabs are under the hard plastic where the hose fits in. They slide over the ribs in the hose. They are hard plastic tabs that press the hose over a hard plastic inner pipe that the hose slides over. Be careful.

I couldn't open the link from IrishDruid.  I have this vac, but haven't work on it(yeah).  You need to seperate part 9 from 10, then clip 11 will secure the hose to 10.    I know you don't want to spend a lot of money on this repair,  but if you get it apart and together and it doesn't work,  would you have preferred to spend the $55 on a new hose  and be done with it?  I hate this approach, replacing the entire thing, but in the real world we only have so much time.

Dyson DC14 hose won't extend and floor unit lost suction


Sounds like the exhaust side is clogged. Remember a vacuum pulls air into the cavity, but for it to work properly it also has to be able to exhaust the same amount of air it takes in. If the exhaust is blocked it will continue to suck air inside and collapse on itself, which is why your hoses are getting shorter and harder to move. Check the exhaust system for any blockages, perhaps the hole you taped was the exhaust.

My bag style RY7500 Vacuum has a broken hose.. i can't find the part to replace anywhere online. Also don't know how to remove/replace.


You don't mention where it broke. Is it broken off at the very end or in the middle somewhere. If the ends are still OK and you love that vac, you can fall back on an old trick used by the military in WWII - duct tape! Find another vac hose the same diameter (any vacuum repair store will have them in stock) or you can take a piece of hose to a home improvement store to match up.

Cut out the broken area as evenly as possible. Cut a new piece of hose the same size you removed so the hose remains the same length. Wipe off the edges to remove any dirt. Lay your tubing on newspaper or cardboard. Next you'll need a sealant that will not only stick the parts together, it will remain strong after drying. (Silicone or epoxy glues both work.) Work on ONE break at a time. Apply a thin bead between the two pieces & press together. DO NOT DISTURB but leave the pieces to dry 24hrs. After it's dry use duct tape to reinforce the break (trust me, you'll be glad you did). Then fix the other side of the cut-out.

If it broke off at the very end, remove the hose from the connectors on both ends. Clean out any old hose -if any - if the hose fits inside the connectors. If it fits over a connector, make sure the outside's clean & smooth. Insert/Apply a new hose using the sealant. Duct tape after it's dry. (Yeah, I love the stuff. Saves a ton of extra work by supporting the stressed area.)

If it's just a small crack in the hose clean the broken ends so there's no dirt. Fill the crack in the hose with a thin bead of sealant, dry & duct tape it.

I've used this trick many times, so I know it works. Good Luck!

Hoover steam vac hose is broken


This applies to Hoover SteamVac model F5899-910.

My unit had a broken hose. I repaired the hose using duct tape and Teflon tape. The breakage seems to be due to a manufacturing error or design defect. The hose is clamped to the unit where it passes to the inside. The position of the clamp did not allow enough slack when the handle is released and the unit is wide open.

The hose coupling has a plastic latch that holds it onto the vacuum nipple. Pry it and remove the coupling. Then trim the ragged end of the hose and clean things up. Wrap the hose with some teflon tape and then tape the hose to the coupling with several turns of duct tape. Attach the hose coupling back onto the vacuum nipple.

Now you should move the clamp say an inch, so that it leaves more slack. Take the two screws out of the clamp and pry out the plastic bracket/cover that holds the clamp in place. Then move the clamp and screw the clamp back onto the bracket/cover. Then snap the bracket/cover back in place.

Take care not to put too much slack in the hose (by moving the clamp too far), as the hose can also bunch up due to being too crowded when the handle is upright.

Inspect the hose and the tape whenever you use it.

My Hoover Linx handle broke.


Not sure what you mean by a broken handle, but if you mean the plastic is cracking where the handle connects to the main body than I have a suggestion. We have had this happen a couple times and I tried various fixes that did not work. However, recently I found a cheap product that will strength the handle to make it stronger than new. It called Fiber Fix tape (its on Amazon). Wet the tape and wrap the handle. It is a quick set epoxy in a fiberglass like cloth. Dries very hard. Not pretty, but it works great.

I have a dyson dc 07 how on earth do i connect the flexible hose for cleasning the the stairs to the machine


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

I am not clear from your question as to whether you have purchased a replacement hose and need to know how to fit it or you are asking how you use the hose to vacuum?

If you are trying to fit a new hose, with the old one removed, simply line up the large plastic cuff on the base of the hose (this is the one with the cable tidy) and push it downwards into the slot at the base of the main body until it clicks into place. You can then insert the wand handle back in and store it on the machine.

If you would like to know how to to use the wand/hose, simply press the wand catch on the front of the wand handle just above the main carrying handle and pull it upwards. You can then splide the hose to the bottom of the metal pipe and press the button on the hose cuff to release the wand handle. The tools fit directly onto the hose cuff for vacuuming the car, your stairs or upholstery.

I hope that this information is useful to you.

Kind regards
Darran

Won't work cleaning tools


There is a clog somewhere.

Most likely at any bends or where the hose enters the main body of the vac.

Make sure it's unplugged.
Romove the hose, stretch it out straight and see if you can see through it.

If there arer any hard piped bends try running a pipe cleaner through it to see where the blockage is.

Again, it's likely where the hose base meets the vac housing.

Needle nose pliers com in handy for pulling out string, hair, rig fibers pet fur etc.

Loss of suction when using upright. Suction remains for samll tools


I checked all the pipes and seals. There is a flexible pipe which you can see underneath that connects the front rotating brush assembly to the vacuum system. This pipe can crack and loss of suction occurs when using it upright. The pipe can be repaired temporarily with strong fabric sticky backed tape (e.g. carpet seal tape). A new pipe can be fitted with a few tools.
