Question about Hoover Portapower C2094 Bagged Canister Vacuum
Hi, when I got this Hoover Portapower used the cloth bag had about an inch of stuff built up on the inside of it. I got the adapter and replaced the cloth bag with paper. Still has very poor suction. Also the hose doesn't stay on well, so when I carry it up the staircase to vacuum the hose keeps falling off. I can't see any way to fasten it. Thank for any suggestions for either or both problems.

In reply to the problem you have about the hose not staying attached very well, we had this problem years ago with one of our old cylinder vacs. Sometimes after several years of the hose connector being rotated to attach/remove it from the machine, the lugs that lock it into the hole can wear down or become mis-shapen as they are only made of plastic.
I have a UK model Hoover Portapower and luckily have never had this problem as I hardly remove the hose at all (except when emptying the bag). If you remove the hose from the machine and have a look at the connecting part of the hose where it attaches to the machine, there should be two lugs/clips either side of it. If these lugs look a bit mis-shapen or the plastic on them looks worn, then the hose will not fit the two slots either side of the hole on the inlet fully hence the hose being loose. The only way to cure this problem is either put a little bit of electrical tape on them which will stick the hose to the machine better as that's what we did. Overall though you are probably best replacing the hose for a new one if this is the case as these lugs will then be the correct shape to fit the machine properly on a brand new one :)
