Hoses are screwed into the end bits by turning in the do up direction
original equipment hoses are normally glued into the end piece but with a bit of determination and a flat bladed screw driver, the glue can be broken and the end removed
fit the good section of the hose into the end and screw it in using an un do direction
if it is the plastic fitting itself that is broken then weld the broken section back together
Basically use a soldering iron and heat the sections until the plastic melts back together
There are u tube pages that show how easy it is to do as they heat weld all sorts of plastic and tips on how to improve the strength of the repair. go google and type in how to weld plastic.

Where is schematics online to replace lower hose assembly part


There is no schematic that I am aware of. I can tell you that from experience that this repair is very difficult. Basicaly the upper and lower handle unscrew along with the tank base, the hood comes off. the lower handle will split but not comes completely apart to remove the hose section. When reassembling, be sure to put the back hose gasket in the correct position. Look at it (take a picture) prior to repair first.

I had the same problem just before the impeller broke. Lower the handle and check the hose connection at the bottom is not broken. Turn the unit on with the handle down, then check the suction on the accessory hose, leae it disconnected. Take off the bottom container, and check the suction on the round intake tube (lower one towards the front), with the handle up and with the handle down. If the suction increases dramatically when the handle is lowered, the impeller is probably in it's self-destruct stage. (same as mine). Soon the impeller will break off, and BINGO no suction at all.

Good luck!

Hoover agility--poor suction, still!


When you remove the dirty water tank, on the machine, there is a screen that gets clogged and will prevent good suction, is this one clean? If it is, do you feel suction at that screen, if so then there is a problem with the tank. If no suction there, then you will have to check it over for a air leak or a bad seal.

Hoover agility wont suck


There are 2 filters and if either one gets clogged, it will not suck up the water. One is from the bottom, it is red, pull it out far enough to clean it. The other one is behind the dirty water tank, remove the tank and you can see it on the wall covering the inlet for the suction. Clean it off, you should have suction now.

Hoover Agility, No Suction!!!


I had the same problem. Lower the handle to the floor and check the black spiral suction hose at the neck of the machine. The lower hose in my Hoover split. Check and see if yours has done the same thing. If so, the lower suction hose will have to be replaced. Hope this helps.
