Question about Riccar Vacuums
If it is not repairable, can I purchase a hose and replace the house without buying the entire control handle?
More than likely you can just take it into your local guarantee vacuum and sewing center and they will tell you the cost and get the part for you

There are 2 tabs that stick out on the release, they fit in slots, so from the top look down and you can see them, using a flatblade screwdriver that will fit in there, push the side in to release it, which isn't easy, but it can be done. When you get the old one out, then the new one, push down on it until it locks into place.

Go in your garage or to your workbench and grab a BFH whack the **** out of the rest of the steamvac and never buy one again. For those of you not familiar with a BFH it is a Big F_ _ _ ing Hammer.

If you just grab it where it swivels and pull with a slight bending motion the plastic "bayonet" section on the end of the hose will pull out of the plastic housing that attaches to the vacuum. Don't pull on the corrugated hose section or you will ruin the whole assembly.

We've actually shot a video on how to repair the hose on the kenmore vacuum cleaners. The repair we show in the video is different from yours, but the video will clearly show you to pop open the handle assembly.
Here's the video;
