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.

My Dirt Devil Reaction vacuum cleaner has a plugged hose.


Hi! A broom stick or something similar is probably the best tool you can use to remove a clog. Try pushing the broomstick in an up and down motion gently against the clog until it starts to loosen and slide out. If you are unable to remove the clog the hose can be replaced. I have included a link where you may go to purchase a replacement hose if needed. Good luck!

I sucked up a sock and think it's in the hose


Remove the hose from the vacuum cleaner and push a broom handle all the way through the hose. If its in there, that will remove it.

I have a nv30 infinity vacuum. The handle is clogged with a sock right where the flexible hose begins. I cannot reach the sock even after removing the telescoping tube. How can I unclog the handle?


Hi Jackie ma268...
You need a metal coat hanger nd a pair of pliers.
You will straighten out the coat hanger with a pair of pliers, except the end that you hang the clothes hanger up with, because it has got the hook already made..
After you have gotten the hanger straight, you will take the hook of the hanger and make a smaller hook that will slide easy into your hose with the hook being able to catch the sock ...once it has caught the sock, then twist it a few times so that it will get caught up in the sock really well...then pull the sock out of the hose...Job done.
Please take time to rate me

I sucked up a sock I think its in the hose but I am not sure can you help me slove the problem?


Try using a broom handle and push it out the the same end that it came in. If that doesn't work, straighten a metal coat hanger and make a small hook on the end of it. Reach in and grab it.

Good Luck!

Bissell 35962 Cleanview Bagless Revolution Upright Vacuum hose is clogged with sock where hose meets handle attachment. Attempted to use broom handle to push back through suction opening. Sock is...


If you have access to a small sink "snake" used to clear clogs in sinks, you might be able to use it to "snag" the sock and pull it out. Needs to be a metal sewer snake so that you can tug on it if and when it snags the sock.

Hose is plugged close to the handle. How is the handle removed from the hose and reassembled after the plug is removed?


I don't recommend this for the homeowner. Take the hose in to your nearest AERUS store. It is just too easy to damage the pins and rings putting the handle back on. If you insist on trying, remove the little torx screws under the little buttons on the top side of the handle. Good LUCK and be careful. Don't force anything.

I have a sock stuck in the hose of my vacuum cleaner. Rennaisance canister model. Because of the design of the handle I can't utilize the reverse blower. Please advise. Thanks


lol

Try taping a fishing hook or some such onto the end of a straightened out coat hanger. See if you can push it up the hose and hook the sock.

Or, remove the hose entirely, and push a broom handle down the hose.

That's all I got...

My Hoover is picking dust , very poorly


The Telios has a bad design on the handle and it sounds like something has definately got stuck. Unfortunately the nature of the cheap European design means the handle can only be removed by someone who owns a vice in their garage without breaking the removal points. Alternatively find a long bamboo stick or pole to put inside the hose mount which connects normally from the main bin of the Telios (not the other way around up the handle) which has no sharp edges and push up and down vigourously to dislodge any clogged dirt which may have inadverntely got stuck either by the handle or in the hose itself.

Another thing to do is to check the suction from the Telios itself by removing the hose. If there is suction coming from the main dirt bag/bin door with the hose removed then there is no problem other than a clogged hose and handle. Hoover updated the handle and hose in 1999 and spares can be found by looking on Ebay.co.uk for cheaper prices.
