Remove hose from 66T6


I know how frustrating this can be. Try turning the hose and wands in opposite directions where they connect. Once the hose and wand is separated you'll be able to connect the pet hair attachment.

Here's a quick link to obtaining a copy of the user guide if you've misplaced yours:

How do i release. the hose to attach the attachments?


Near the carpet attachment, on the lefthand side of the hose, there should be a release mechanism that you simply push in with your foot while pulling on the hose/wand. Once the carpet attachment is removed, you can connect the other attachments. Push the release toward the hose.

Carpet setting: the brush drive does not work with the carpet setting. Is there a way to remove the bottom to determine if something is caught in the system?


To determine if you have a clog, first remove the attachment hose like you were going to put an attachment on. With the vacuum in the upright position, turn the vacuum on and place your hand over the hose. Do you feel a strong suction? If not remove the hose attachment by turning the locking ring at the end of the hose on the back of the vacuum counterclockwise, then remove the hose. Stretch the hose to it's fullest length several times. I would do this over some plastic or outside to keep the dust down.
Once you have done this replace the hose turning the locking ring clockwise to lock it in place, give the hose a little tug to make sure it's attached and locked.
Again, with the hose free from the agitator turn the vacuum on and fee for a good suction.
If you still don't have one then you likely have a plugged filter.
You will need to remove the dust bin.44d2af9.jpgOnce the dust bin is removed, over you trash can empty it by pressing the dustbin door release downwards. Now rotate the dustbin lid counterclockwise to remove the primary filter. With the lid removed grasp the filter and turn counterclockwise to remove the filter.

Pull the filter out over a trash can. Once out inspect it, if it's dirty you should wash the filter in warm water until the water is clear. When finish let the filter air dry for 24 hours before reinserting it.
Upon reinserting the filter, turn it clockwise to lock it in place, install the filter cover with a clockwise rotation to lock it in place and reinstall the dust bin.
Now plug the vacuum back in and again with the hose removed from the agitator or brush and ready to install an attachment then the vacuum on and you should have a solid suction.
These vacuums are really prone to poor suction if the filter get dirty. Because they have washable filters, you should take time about one a month to clean the filters.
Thanks Dorrian

Hoover Superscub attachments won't work


It sounds to me like you have the water hose plugged in, but not the hose block. In the front of the dirty water return tank there should be a removable square plastic piece. Remove the lid and slide that piece out. Replace wth the back end of the hose receptacle. If you have already done this, then here is your problem: when you return the lid to the top of the return tank, you must roll it on from the front(there are brackets the lid hooks under) to the back and listen or feel or the "click" your tank is now ready to pick up the dirty water from your hose. let me know if this helps!

Dirt Devil Upright Bagless Vibe Vacuum no longer sucks


Sounds like there's a clog in the long hose that connects to the dirt canister. Remove the hose completely and check for clogs. There is a blue plastic piece that the hose is attached to. You can remove it by taking out the two screws in the back, and the four screws behind the dirt canister. Once those are removed, the hose comes away from the vacuum with the blue plastic piece attached. That should allow you to check for clogs. If necessary, take the hose outside or a place that is well lit, so you can visually verify the absence of clogs.

Connecting hoses on Kirby G4


The hose attaches in place of the beater-bar head unit. To remove the head unit, lift the headlight assembly, then turn the square gray Kirby emblem counter-clockwise 3/4 of the way around until the red triangle on the square portion aligns with the red triangle on the base unit (this disengages the belt). Then flip the silver metal fastener that was underneath the headlight to release the head unit and remove the head unit. To attach the hose, simply line it up so that the safety button is engaged by the hose assembly and then use the metal fastener under the headlight to secure the hose to the base unit.

How do you remove the plastic end fitted to the flexible hose


Not necessarily. Some Dyson models have an all inclusive flexi hose which attaches to the handle spine. Check EBay for replacement flexi hoses - UK has many sellers - or handles which have the metal pole and the flexi tube attached. 
Alternatively take off the flexi hose from the bottom rear of the Dyson - it can come out via a press in lock release but it may take some time to do this. Once that is done the flexi hose should come down freely from the metal tube. If it doesnt then you may need to consider both replacements.
Dont forget to rate, thanks.
