Most vacuum cleaner hoses can be unplugged at some point. One way to clear a clog is to reverse the hose & let the vacuum **** the clog out the way it went in. If you have to remove the clog manually, a length of coat hanger wire, with a small hook bent on one end, will serve. Most clogs are near the hose ends, so not much wire length is required.

HI, it's Jim from Crucial Vacuum!

If your Fuller Brush Vacuum is experiencing problems with the hose a simple fix is to detach it from the vacuum itself. On the far end of one side of the hose there should be a button to remove it.

Stretch the hose out as far as you can, this will help loosen any clogs as well as provide more durability with your hose. A handy device to use to unclog hard to reach spots in your vacuums hose is a broom handle. This will unclogging easy by running the broom handle through the entirety of the hose.

SOURCE: clogged hose...

Hi!

Low suction, poor pickup, or no suction may be due to a clog in the vacuum cleaner. If you notice a change in the sound of the motor or a reduction in the spinning action in the Dirt Container, check for clogs. Unplug cleaner from electrical outlet. Empty Dirt Container. Check Upper Tank and Louvers for build up or clogs. Check to make sure Louvers are installed correctly. To unlock the Louvers, grasp the rim and turn toward the left. Pull straight down to remove. If the Louvers are missing or not locked into place, check and clear the tube in the center of the Dirt Container. Remove the Twist ‘n Snap Hose from the vacuum by turning to the left. Check the Suction Inlet, Hose and Hose Wand for clogs. Remove any clogs from the hose using a long, narrow object. Check the Foot Hose for clogs. If needed, remove the screw attaching the Hose Wand Base to the vacuum. Straighten the Foot Hose and unclog with a long, narrow object. If the clog persists, then check the Rotating Floor Brush the Air Passageway for obstructions.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

How to remove a clog


Hey there! Most of our vacuums you are able to remove the tool hose without the use of a screwdriver or other tools. Follow these brief steps to check your vacuum for clogs.

Remove the hose from both ends. Use a broom stick to gently loosen and clear any clogs from hose.

Remove the hood or nozzle to access the brushes, remove the brushes. Use a wooden spoon or something similar to loosen and remove any clogs from the lower hose

Hope this helps you!

If the hose was clogged there's a good chance the head was clogged too. Try to stick a bent coat hanger or other semi-rigid piece down the throat at the top of the head to push the clog out through the mouth. You might have to remove the beater bar to get the clog out.

Lost suction but no cloggs in line


see the solution; God bless you
How to determine a clog in your hose
Take your central vacuum hose and connect it directly to the dirt canister. After turning on the vacuum if the hose has normal suction here then the clog exists in your tubing.
Click here for help with tubing clogs. But, if you experience reduced suction at the canister then your hose is clogged. See Solutions below.
check.gifPlug hose in reverse into the inlet located on your unit and turn on the system. This should aspirate the clog out.
check.gifOr, remove the hose from the inlet and push a garden hose through hose to push out the clog. Most importantly, the garden hose must be turned off and there should be absolutely no water entering your vacuum hose.
check.gifOr, remove the hose from inlet and drop in a heavy object such as a screwdriver to push out clog.

The dirt isn't making its way to the canister . . . what could be the problem? I have taken apart everything I know to take apart to check it.


Generally this is due to a clog in the hose.
Disconnect both ends of the hose, hold one end up and drop a coin into it. Raise the hose so the coin should drop out. If it doesn't there's a clog. It can usually be pushed back out with a broom stick. Push toward the powerhead end.
A blockage in the powerhead above and behind the brush will also cause this. One here can usually be pushed out using a wooden spoon handle.
Is there even suction at the power head? Drop a bit of paper on the floor and try to vacuum it up to find out.

Model 116 hose clog?
Posted by rfrazelle on Jun 23, 2008
My old canister model 116 followed with numbers 2839580 marked Kenmore 3.9 with power-mate, worked fine until the bag got overly full. I have changed the bag, cleaned the filter, and removed a nasty hair/fur/dust clog :-p from the lower metal tube of the power mate. It now has very weak suction and won't pick up anything. I suspect a clog in the grey plastic flexible tubing attached to the canister but cannot get it apart. Advice?
RJ


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Kenmore 22313 Bagged Canister Vacuum. The best way to find a clog in an electric hose is to use a steel ball or a large marble to place inside the hose and to let it so threw as far as it can to determine where the hose clog is. Once you have determined where the hose clog is then you can use a small end of a broom handle of take an old wire coat hanger and place a hook on the end and try to pull the clog out of the electric hose – the electric hose is very expensive so try not to damage the hose in any way, shape or form. Or another way is that id you have another canister vacuum you can try to pull the clog apart by using two vacuums turned on and running. If you are successful then run the round marble or steel ball thru the hose again and the clog should be cleared.

I have a vacuum cleaner model Z5245 and the flexible hose keeps sucking together and stopping suction. This is the bit with the stop start controls on it. How do I repair this or replace it?


If theres a clog, then youll have to remove the entire section of hose from the vacuum and use a non blunt stick - bamboo sticks are excellent for this purpose. Stretch the whole hose out and put the stick down the hose until you can wriggle the stick down the hose - this usually gets rid of most clogs until it falls out - then you may have to reverse the hose on the other side to dislodge anything which gets stuck from the control side. 
You may have to take your model back to Eureka/Electrolux for it to be repaired if theres a clog.
