HI, it's Jim from Crucial Vacuum!

Turn the vacuum off first and then try stretching the hose out entirely to release any clogs. A handy way to unclog hard to reach spots in your hose is to use a broom handle, or coat hanger. With the coat hanger try and use a plastic one to avoid tearing the walls of the hose.

Was using vacuum and sock is now lodged in vacuum hose. How can I get the sock out?


The easiest way to remove an article of clothing from the hose is to remove one end of the hose from the vacuum, and reach in with a piece of wire with the end bent into a hook. A wire coathanger will work well for this. Just straighten out the coathanger, take a pair of pliers, and put a small bend at the end of the wire, in a J, or hook shape. Then, reach the wire into the hose, and when you feel the obstruction, twist the wire, so that the hook gets stuck on the sock. Then, pull it out, and reattatch the end of the hose back on the vacuum.
It doesn't matter which end of the hose you remove, just whichever is easier, and hopefully closest to the clog.

Do not try to push it out, as it will just bunch up tighter. It must be pulled out.

Sock stuck in hose midway. Unable to getit out with wire or brrom handle. Is there a way to take hose apart at either end.


If the sock is midway, taking either or both ends apart won't help. Take it to a vacuum repair shop and ask them to try to unplug it. You may need to buy a new hose.

If you have access to a small sink "snake" used to clear clogs in sinks, you might be able to use it to "snag" the sock and pull it out. Needs to be a metal sewer snake so that you can tug on it if and when it snags the sock.

I got a sock stuck in the hose how do i get it out?


Take a metal closthes hanger and undo the hook end from the spiral at the base of the hook, leave the hook and the coil that held the hanger together as is and straighten the rest. Put the spiral end of the hanger into the hose, when it reaches the sock twist the hanger to screw the spiral into the fabric, not too far, only a little. If you have enough grip on the sock, it should pull back out. You may have to try several times until the sock pulls free. Good luck.

When i use the power brush attachment, dust flies out of the hole that the hose attaches to... is there a way to prevent this or is it just how it works?


this is the nature of this vacuum, the roller will always spin, when the vac is turned on. You can either cover wit tape or maybe find a sock to put in it (remember to remove sock) when putting hose back

Any tricks to putting on a central vacuum hose sock? The last one took me 4 hours and I'm sure there must be an easier solution. It has no zipper.


Send it back and get one with a zipper. :) Okay did it come in a tube or with a tube? They are really necessary when putting a hose sock on. You first want to put the hose sock on the tube. You then slide the tube over the hose and take the hose sock off at the end. Tie the hose sock securely in place and start pulling the tube over the hose. The sock will slide off the tube and onto the hose as you go.
