We have a hoover conquest vac. and we got a new intake hose, black oblong accordion style in appearance, the one that takes it from the main body to the hard plastic bagless receptacle.
Would like to know how to attach it.
Thank you. Terry

If you want to take the hose off you can just flush it with a garden hose or in a wash tub. Just back flow it a few times. All the parts are plastic and water proof you wont hurt it. The black seal I believe you are looking for is this:
Tammy, no info re your location, so I''l try this. Your Hoover hose is shot because it was made of rubber.There are new swivel handled, tangle proof lighter hoses made of vinyl which will last much longer and can be adapted to the old Hoover head by changing the upper steel tube. Find a Hoover service center, outlet in the yellow pages and ask for the "NEW "style, gray``Plastiflex`` brand hose and upper adapter tube sold with new Hoovers at Costco and you will be all set. Then, when the head eventually dies, you can upgrade to a far better one , while still having the Hoover cannister, the hose and tools do not need to match the original tank.
Hoover SteamVac Ultra (model F5883-900) Threw it away, and had to buy a new machine. Sorry, but I found it more difficult to deal with the housing unit on the machine and just couldn't deal with it anymore. I hope you have better luck than I did with it. I couldn't find ANY help on ANY web sites for this model, just too old I guess.

Posted by castcomm on May 29, 2008 How do you dismantle handle to replace aforementioned hose? Swing arm on unit goes all the way to the floor. Is this normal? Is there a "stop" broken that caused the hose to stretch, and ultimately break? Hello, I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.Hoover SteamVac Carpet / Upholstery Deep Carpet Cleaner. There are handle screws that you can get into the handle and then you can back track the replace the interior hose for the cleaning attachment. There should not be a stop that caused the hose to stretch ad break. The hoses after a while do get old crack and break due from normal use or if the bend @ sharp angles, this is common among all vinyl vacuum cleaner hoses.
