Question about Kenmore Vacuums

How can I remove the handle and hose swivel to unclog the hose on my Kenmore 116-29229

I sucked up some socks and they are lodged in the middle of the hose. I want to push them through with a broom handle but the curved handle and hose swivel prevent that. I tried a couple of hangers put together but they are not rigid enough.

Don't put a hanger in there.... Call your local Aerus Service Center and they can remove it for you . If they tear the hose its their responsibility to replace it. If you tear it you are looking at $119.99tx at least.

Consider this. If your vacuum is still under warranty, removing the hose will void the warranty on the hose. I strongly recommend calling an authorized dealer/consultant.
Although it may seem to be fairly simple to remove the handle, there are wires that need to be disconnected in order to separate the handle from the hose, gaining access to the toy. And reconnected. If not properly done, attempting this may lead to needing to purchase a new hose.

SOURCE: Vacuum hose is clogged.

You could probably dislodge it with a hand operated sewer snake used to clean drains if you have one available.

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.

My Kenmore vacuum model #116.27515 will not turn on.


When you took the hose apart were there wires that you had to take apart as well. If those wires were inside the hose then you need a new hose. I think they are about one hundred dollars or go to second hand store and get a used one.if you can.

Remove the hose from the vacuum cleaner and push a broom handle all the way through the hose. If its in there, that will remove it.

I have a nv30 infinity vacuum. The handle is clogged with a sock right where the flexible hose begins. I cannot reach the sock even after removing the telescoping tube. How can I unclog the handle?


Hi Jackie ma268...
You need a metal coat hanger nd a pair of pliers.
You will straighten out the coat hanger with a pair of pliers, except the end that you hang the clothes hanger up with, because it has got the hook already made..
After you have gotten the hanger straight, you will take the hook of the hanger and make a smaller hook that will slide easy into your hose with the hook being able to catch the sock ...once it has caught the sock, then twist it a few times so that it will get caught up in the sock really well...then pull the sock out of the hose...Job done.
Please take time to rate me

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.

I sucked in a sock or something. How do I get at it?


remove the lower floor unit plate,, and use a wire coat hanger to fish out the ' sock '. if it is way up the hose - then you might need to remove the hose from the unit and try and work out the blockage using your wire or a stiff dowel.

Hose is plugged close to the handle. How is the handle removed from the hose and reassembled after the plug is removed?


I don't recommend this for the homeowner. Take the hose in to your nearest AERUS store. It is just too easy to damage the pins and rings putting the handle back on. If you insist on trying, remove the little torx screws under the little buttons on the top side of the handle. Good LUCK and be careful. Don't force anything.

My Dyson DC20 motorhead vacuum has a blocked hose - how can I unclog this? I think there is a sock caught up by the handle. The hose has electrical wires running through it so I cannot cut the hose.


Usually a plugged hose can be cleared using a broom handle, if you can force the blockage through, if not as previously suggested a coat hanger attached to the broom handle (duck tape will do) straighten out hanger so it can be used like a cork screw to screw into the blockage and pull it out, socks,underwear and pantyhose are the usual suspects!

Assemble Swivel Assembly onto Kenmore Canister vac


Got this post off this web site...I just replaced my swivel and it worked:
http://www.managemyhome.com/mmh/answers/Answers.action#l4q110567
To install a new swivel assembly, you will need 2 small, flat tip screw drivers. Unplug the vacuum. Push the screw drivers in between the hose and the collar where you see the seams in the plastic collar on the end where the hose enters the collar. This will release tabs that hold the collar to the swivel. Pry and pull the collar back over the hose and then pull the small screwdrivers out of the collar. Slide the collar back along the hose. Unplug the wiring connections from the hose. Pull the hose wires up and out of the holder on the swivel assembly. Lift the tabs on the side of the hose and pull it off of the swivel. Push the new swivel onto the hose. Align the hose wires and secure them in the holder. Plug the wires from the swivel into the hose wires (blue to blue, white to white). Secure the swivel wires into the wire holder on the swivel assembly. Push the collar back up the hose and onto the swivel with the plastic seams aligned with the tabs on each side of the hose. Snap the collar securely into place.
