Broken black plastic of hose handle where it meets the metal part

I am looking to replace the whole extendable metal tube. The black plastic top part where is the air intake control and meets the (sealed) metal pipe has craked and split open. It broke when it hit the floor tile while resting against the wall. It just craked open... not very strong plastic. where can I find another part?

Top coupler on gas pump handle ONLY (Majestic 360 SS) is broken. Do we have to replace whole hose and handle assembly?


They now make a replacement tab so you don't have to replace the entire handle grip. The bad part is, most of the time it's the handle grip that has the broken place in the plastic, not the latch tab. That too can be bought seperately though, so you don't have to buy the hose. Call your local vac shop for assistance.

Dyson wand, handle and hose are all unattached. How do I put them back together?


You can find a copy of the DC14 Manual here (
https://www.dyson.com/medialibrary/Files/Dyson/Support/downloads/US/Floorcare/manuals/dc14_opmanual_usa2007%20pdf.pdf ) Pages 4, 5, and 6 have plenty of schematics for putting the wand/handle assembly back together and getting everything to click. In a nutshell, the metal tube pretty much just slides back into the tube top, and then the slid-in tube clicks back into the top of the machine.

Good Luck!

I have Dyson DC05. The plastic clip from handle to the metal pipe is broken. Can this be repaired or do I need to replace the whole metal pipe section? If so where can I do this.


Dear Madam/Sir

This is very simple problem. the problem can be solved in a very simple manner.

As you have told me that the plastic grip from the handle to the metal pipe is broken.

You Can do it near by any welding shop, tell him to weld and the problem can be solved easily.

or i'll give you another mode as this one you can do in home itself. heat the metal then insert hte plastic pipe in the metal then it can be fixed easily and leave it for 5 to 10 minutes.

When running the 2100 Electrolux vacuum, it is stopping and starting when pulling or pushing the floor attachment. Seems like the connection at the top of the handle is a little loose or the electric tabs...


Depending on the age of your 2100, you will need to replace, the wand cord, the handle wiring and perhaps theh upper wand inner tube and handle as well.
If you examine your cord contacts they will be blackened from slippage, so will the female socket they plug into. On and aging 2100 the 1/2 inch groove at the front of the chrome handle tube begins to wear and the metal inner tube clip under the thumb button of the wand develops play back and forth. The wand comes apart into 4 pieces, plastic sheath, upper and lower tubes and cord assy.
If the hose handle groove is worn enough to allow in and out play, you will need to replace the handle, it's wiring, and at least the clip button on the upper wand as well as the wand cord.
You will find these wand parts at a pro vacuum shop but if your hose is original you will need to go to an AERUS Electrolux repair center for parts.
Post back with your results.

My Eureka Optima vacuum handle broke right at the metal tube.


I have exactly the same problem. I plan to drill a hole in the handle through plastic and metal, and then pass a metal pin to hold them together. I don't rotate the handle much, so the loss of handle spin functionality will not be a major issue for me.

Remove hose from handle on old electrolux canister


BE careful here. Do not fish a coat hanger in the handle.
The original hose has a set of detachable handle componnets.There are two metal screws in the underside of the hand grip.Do Not pry. Once removed go to the suction dial area underside of the grip. Observe the plastic fingers near the dial. These must be reset in their " track " when reassembling the handle.
Gently insert a small flat screwdriver between the rubber wiring contacts and the plastic tongue wraps around the socket. this tongue which extends from the hose handle adjacent to the metal tube. Work you way back to the hose area carefully separating the "hand grip cover" from the hose handle itself.
Once apart remove the obstruction. Carefully clean the two brass rings looking for any pitting. If pitted, gently polish by rotating fine wet/dry sandpaper around the rings, then lube with vaseline.
The matching contact fingers on the handgrip cover should be cleaned as well and gently tensioned to put a bit more presusre on the contact rings.
Slide the handle ONLY onto the hose. Once in place the contact rings will be visible. Now you can work the handgrip cover back into place starting with the two tabs at the hose end below the contact rings. To seat the small fingers at the control valve gently click into place before reinstalling upper handle screws.

I NEED A TELESCOPIC HOSE FOR MY PHILIPS EXPRESSION HOOVER, WHERE CAN I GET THIS MY HOSE PIPE IS BROKEN AND I HAVE TRIED TO GET A NEW ONE AT VARIOUS SHOPS HERE IN IRELAND AND I CANT.


Hi - greetings from Scotland! Im not sure if you mean telescopic hose = do you mean telescopic metal tubes? If so they are readily available on ebay.co.uk I buy from many sellers on there but Hoovermania are one of the best.
What you need to do before order is to measure one of the smaller cleaning tools at the opening with a ruler where you'd usually put the hose. If you haven't got one to hand measure the end part of the plastic handle where the hose is where you'd usually attach the pipes. Generally if it measures 3.5 cm this works out to be a 32mm fitting tube which is readily available on Ebay and from different sellers. If however it is more then it has a 35mm fitting.
If its bigger than that, then you'd need 35mm tubes of which some are still available on EBay. In any case, you can look at different manufactures because when it comes to telescopic metal tubes the 32mm fittings will fit any vacuum cleaner that can accomodate these sizes. Therefore shop around; Hoovermania have a few on offer and you can phone / email them if you are not sure.

I need to reassemble my rainbow e series electrified hose handle


Yes, it is a ground wire. When you put it back together, make sure that the two halves of the hose handle are holding the wire up against the metal. I just had one apart the other day for the first time and if I recall correctly, the wire goes near the center for reassembly. Hope this helps!

How do you remove the plastic end fitted to the flexible hose


Not necessarily. Some Dyson models have an all inclusive flexi hose which attaches to the handle spine. Check EBay for replacement flexi hoses - UK has many sellers - or handles which have the metal pole and the flexi tube attached. 
Alternatively take off the flexi hose from the bottom rear of the Dyson - it can come out via a press in lock release but it may take some time to do this. Once that is done the flexi hose should come down freely from the metal tube. If it doesnt then you may need to consider both replacements.
Dont forget to rate, thanks.
