Question about Vacuums
My hose broke right where the attachment go on it like torn loose .can I cut the hose then try to attach it back ?
Bissel. com actually sells the parts quite cheaply.
I have one of their "Spotbots" and you can get most of the replacement parts right on the site...

If one attachment works ok, but another doesn't, then there must be a problem with the attachment and will have to be replaced.

Change the belt, they stretch after a short time and then it can't drive the brush roll under load. The part # is 2031329

Ladies! Go to vaccums24X7.com. They have more parts for older machines than you can imagine. They have good pix to help you ID your model if you can't read the worn spec plate. They have hoses for the 1970's-1990's old "iron horse" electrolux canister models. So does ebay and a few other sites...do a google search and you will find them. Sadly, Electrolux (the company) is more interested in selling new machines than supporting old ones...like everyone else these days. Still my old (1982) Silverado Delux really sucks, so much so in fact that it pulled the liner out of the old hose and would not pick up dirt as a result. A new hose is about $70....you can get a whole new vaccum at Wally-World for that, though as you point out they do not have the vaccum that the older machines do, but then the older machines are always needing work because of their age. I hope that helped you.

its probably a solenoid that controls the flow to the floor, take it to a bissell repair center, because its not an easy fix.

SOURCE: hose attachment
Your wand is getting stuck in the hose because the hose is twisted - you need to unwind it:
1) Pull the wand up as far as you can, all the way if possible
2) Stretch the hose out and unwind it, use some babypowder on the metal part of the wand and in the future, unwind and stretch the hose out after you use it
3) If you can't get the wand all the way out, remove the canister from the front, push the button where you see the 7 vertical grooves (on the opposite side of the hook that you wind the cable around) - then pull on the hook and pull the hose up and off of the machine - stretch the hose out from the bottom and pull the wand out - now apply baby powder to the metal rod and disconnect and stretch and unwind the hose every time after you used the wand to clean.
