Electrolux Nimble Vacuum Clogged Base hose

I've had the nimble for a few months now and my problem is the entry way on the base of the Vacuum where the brushes are is clogged. I've tried using another vacuum to **** out the blockage but it seems to go up into the area where the motor is and I cannot stick a snake or wire to clear the blockage. Will removing the hexagonal screws allow me to access the hose? The hose that has the 1 screw is the hose that is blocked to be exact. I cannot reach any more into it to pull out the blockage, any advice on how to do this??

SOURCE: Eureka the boss vacuum cleaner brush won't turn

Take the top cover off, remove the torx screws on each side of the motor housing, remove the screw on the back holding the hose, then you just have to compare the 2 before putting on the new one. Can't tell for sure without a model number to get you a picture. What isn't on the new base, take off the old base and put it on the new one.

SOURCE: Clogged Hose

Hi, this sounds like you have something stuck quite firmly in the hose!! If you use a good sturdy stick then you should be able to move the object without any damage to the hose. Check along the outside of the hose first just incase something has pushed its way out of the hose wall.
Get back to me.........

SOURCE: hose is clogged, can't remove hose.

hello,i have a 2996AVS,i have worked on many vacuums like this,if you look down on the top cover where the wheel height knob is,on the far left & far right side's there is a chrome phillips head screw on each side,remove these two screws,the top cover will lift off,just pull up on the back part of the cover and it will lift off,then you can see where the hose attaches,there is a small slot where the hose clips in,use a small flat head screwdriver or pocket knife and insert it in the slot,there is a raised lip on the hose you can see, slide the driver in the slot right on top of this raised lip and slide the small screw driver in until it is under the slot,this will pry up the slot and you can pull out the hose from there,on the rear of vacuum there is a clear plastic attaching cup that locks the hose to the unit,just squeeze the two clips together and pull and this section will come off,then you can clean out end to end of hose,just line them up and push them back in when your done,then reinstall top cover and tighten screws,also check your belt why you have the cover off,it it ffeel's loose or hardened,or slick and shiny on inside of belt,this will cause thr roller brush to slow down or stop ,hope this helps you.

Worked perfectly. Thanks, jade_greeney. We thought we were going to have to shell out $100+ for a new vacuum.

    Brush not turnning

    The brush roller is driven by a belt installed on the motor shaft. The belt could be broken or off the shaft. The brush roller could be clogged inside the end caps with debris which prevents rotation. To solve the debris problem, it will be necessary to remove the belt from the motor shaft, then note the orientation of the end caps and remove the brush roller. Next, remove one end cap and check for clogging material. Remove the material. Slide the brush roller shaft away from the end of the brush roller to check for clogging material at the opposite end. Remove the material. Slide the brush roller shaft back into position and reinstall the end cap. Reinstall the brush roller in the correct position. Reinstall the belt. Check for proper rotation of the brush roller.
