How to repair the lower intake flexible hose on the Hoover Agility


hoses are screwed into the end bits by turning in the do up direction
original equipment hoses are normally glued into the end piece but with a bit of determination and a flat bladed screw driver, the glue can be broken and the end removed
fit the good section of the hose into the end and screw it in using an un do direction
if it is the plastic fitting itself that is broken then weld the broken section back together
Basically use a soldering iron and heat the sections until the plastic melts back together
There are u tube pages that show how easy it is to do as they heat weld all sorts of plastic and tips on how to improve the strength of the repair. go google and type in how to weld plastic.

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!

Why lux 5000 has nosuckshen


90% of the time it's because the hose is either clogged or in need of replacement. Quick way to check for an obstruction is to simply drop a nickel in one end of the hose and if it doesn't come out the other...IT's CLOGGED! Remove the rear cover where the after filter is, remove the filter, stick the vacuum end of the hose into the blower port, turn the vac on to clear the hose. If it's not a clogged hose and you have low suction at the port where the hose goes into the machine, then it's most likely a motor situation and in need of replacement. I do that here. Hope it helps!

Problem is system cuts off after 10-30 seconds. Is this a common problem?


It is if the motor overheats. Overheating can be caused by several things. Clogged pipes, hose, wands, or power nozzle, or a dirty filter are the most common.
First, disconnect the hose from the wands, plug the hose into the wall outlet, and check the suction. If it's weak or non-existent, there's probably a blockage in it. You can double check by dropping a coin in one end and lifting the hose until the coin drops out the other end. This can best be cleared by using a shop vac or air compressor to blow air through it from the wall end. Plug the shop vac hose into the exhaust port, with the other end in the wall end of the hose Turn on. If this doesn't clear it, you'll probably need to take it to a repair shop.
Visually check the wands. If clogged, simply push it out with a broom handle.
With the wand detached, drop a coin into the wand opening of the power nozzle. If it doesn't fall through, use a wooden spoon handle to push the clog back through toward the brush. Clear it from there.
Check the filter. Remove it and rinse thoroughly. Allow it to air dry thoroughly before reinstalling.
If none of these help, the vacuum needs to be taken to a repair shop for diagnosis and repair.

I am experiencing some (not complete) loss of sunction when I use the hose


Possibilities:
Dirty filter, needs cleaned or replaced.
Partially clogged hose, needs cleared. Detach hose from tank and drop marble down the end of the hose. It should roll through the hose and power head to the floor.
Partial clog in the power head between where hose attaches and the brush. Detach hose from power head and drop marble into opening. If the marble doesn't roll through, there's a clog that needs removed. You may need to disassemble the power head to do so.
Leaky hose, needs replaced.
Clog between back of tank and filter. This is where the hose attaches to the tank. Remove clog.
Clogged filter at bottom of tank, needs cleaned. Remove tank. There's a screen at the bottom of the tank/vacuum. Simply remove/clean anything that may be covering/clogging any of the holes.

My beater bar doesn't work on my power nozzle


Hello,

This could be caused by a few problems. I happened to notice a different repair that you posted about your Sidekick handheld power head also not working. Is this correct that you have two motorized attachments that don't work? If this is the case, this sounds like your electrical hose has gone bad, and has a short circuit somewhere inside of it.

You may verify this by using a simple Continuity Tester that you may pick up at any Hardware store. Simply place one of the testing prongs into the wire harness at the end of the hose that connects into the wand, and the other arm of the tester on one of the prongs that plugs into the wall. If the tester doesn't light up, move the one prong into the other electrical connection on the end of the hose that connects to the wand.

If neither one of these ports lights the tester up, then this indicates your hose has gone bad and needs to be replaced. Unfortunately there's really no way to repair the hose once it has a short circuit.

Here's a link to a replacement hose on our website that will work with your Electrolux Central Vacuum:
http://www.govacuum.com/elcevareho30.html

If you do have continuity in the hose, then try pushing the reset button on the power nozzle (small red pole on the right hand side). If you indeed however do have two different attachments that don't turn on, chances are most likely that your hose needs to be replaced.

I hope this was helpful to you in answering your question. If this helped, please be so kind and rate my repair helpful, or leave feedback for me. This is really appreciated by the Fixya community when an answer was able to fix your problem.

Thanks again,

Beater bar lost power - even after pushing reset button


Hi There,

If you've already tried resetting the power brush, and it still won't come on, this indicates that your electrical hose has most likely gone bad, and needs to be replaced.

This is actually a pretty common problem on Panasonic canisters, as well as Kenmore canisters (Panasonic makes Kenmore canisters).

In order to confirm this, what you'll need to do is purchase a simple electrical tester from Home Depot, or Lowes, and test the hose to make sure you have power making it through the hose.

To test this, remove the hose from the wand so you just have the handle of the hose in your hand with nothing attached to it. Put both ends of the electrical tester into the two female receptacles that plug into the wand, turn the machine on, and make sure that your hose is set to the carpet setting.

You definitely should have power coming to the hose at this part. If there is no power getting her, this indicates that your hose has gone bad. You may also just purchase a new hose (see link below), and if for any reason this doesn't fix your problem, you may return the hose to us within 60 days for a full 100% refund.

If the hose does have power at the end of it, repeat the process with the wand attached to the hose, but not connected to the power nozzle. If you have power getting to the hose, but not the wand, this indicates your wand has gone bad and need to be replaced. If you have power to your wand and hose, this probably indicates that the cord in the neck of the power nozzle has gone bad. Inspect the wire in the neck of the nozzle and see if you see any burning, or discoloration in on the male prongs.

I'm pretty sure that you'll just need to replace the hose, this is by far the most common problem on Panasonic canisters.

There are two different styles of hoses for Panasonic canisters. In order to find out which one is yours, remove the hose from the canister itself. Where the hose cuff plugs into the canister portion, look at the electrical prongs. There is either a 2 prong hose, or 3 prong hose. Here are links to both of the hoses. If your hose is a 3 position hose with a setting for bare floors, and carpets, then you have the 3 prong hose.

If this didn't fix your problem, please just use the comment section on this repair page and let me know what the outcome was after testing it with the electrical tester, and I'll be more then happy to try and do some more advanced diagnosing with you.

I hope this was helpful to you. If you found this helpful, please be so kind and rate my repair helpful, or leave feedback for me, this is really what keeps Fixya repair experts answering free questions, rather then just the premium questions that we get paid for. This is greatly appreciated.

REMOVING HOSE END


I had to replace the hose end on my Kirby, the motor end. I have the Diamond edition. Just take a hair dryer and get the end of the hose warm, and then us a screw driver. Works like a charm. It stays warm long enough to put the new end on.

I want to reconnect a hose to my dysons upright


You can find replacement hoses on eBay for the price of $20 to $30. Search for "DC07 hose". That, obviously is the easiest route. But, you can repair the old hose if the damage is near one end or the other of the hose. Damage in the middle of the hose will not leave enough length for effective use and thus buying a new hose makes since.

If you decide to repair the hose, you will need to use wire cutters to snip the wire in the hose below a point where the damage is and then use scissors or an exacto knife to trim away excess plasitic hose above the snip.

Remove the damaged hose section from the fitting that was cut off. You may need to use pliars to pull on the wire until it comes out. Check the inside of the fitting and remove any remaining debris so you have all of the grooves as clean as possible. The inside of the fitting is threaded like a nut and "screws" onto the hose. You will need some form of adhesive to help keep the hose attached to the fitting. I use silicone caulk for that purpose. Squeeze some into the threads on the fitting, screw the hose on and allow to dry over night.

Hope this helps.
