Question about Electrolux Centralux Vacuum
Our old Electrolux vacuum hose is damaged where it enters the nozzle. I'd like to overcome this by cutting the hose a few inches shorter. How is the hose removed/reinstalled into the nozzle, please?
YOU DON'T SAY IF YOU HAVE THE NEWER HOSE OR THE CLASSIC ONE WITH THE STEEL TIP (BETTER DESIGN). IF IT'S THE LATTER UN-SCREW THE SCREW CLOSEST TO THE STEEL TIP,TAKE A SMALL SCREW DRIVER AND LIFT THE THE PIECE OF PLASTIC THAT WAS SCREWED DOWN JUST ENOUGH TO SLIP THE HOSE OUT.
WHAT YOU'LL BE FACED WITH IS SOMETHING I WOULDN'T SUGGEST CUTTING.
IT MAY BE MORE PRACTICAL BUYING A NEW HOSE. AN ELECTROLUX WILL LAST FOREVER,BUT YOU DO HAVE TO REPLACE THINGS LIKE THE COMBO DUST/UPHULSTRY ATTACHMENT. THE HOSE IS PROBABLY THE FIRST THING YOU WOULD NEED TO REPLACE BECAUSE OF AIR LEAKS. I'VE HAD MY OLYMPIA ONE FOR 27 YEARS AND HAD TO REPLACE THE HOSE ABOUT 10 YEARS AGO. YOUR CHOICE.

Replacing the hose is probably going to be the next step. Heres the thing.... Even though the hoses are a bit pricey- I have found that if youy try to cut a couple feet off the hose you will tick of your wife. I am so used to the length on mine that if I lost a foot off it, I dont know how I would reach behind the couch.... Except to have my hubby install another ACV outlet.... Plus air leaks and crackages happen when you try to shorten the hose...... Good Luck!
