Re: Sock stuck in the vacuum

My fan changing guide will lead you through the process of taking the vacuum apart to get to the sock (if it is still in there)...

Hope this helps,

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.

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.

My shop vac blows dust as soon as it's turned on and throughout use. I have changed filters, nothing is helping. What part of my vac can not get wet, or is there a better way to clean out the system?

there should be a cover or sock over the filter,this will stop the dust.the paper filter is the part that can not get wet. if you don't have a cover for your filter use an old sock or something simular to a sock.

I have a sock stuck in the hose of my vacuum cleaner. Rennaisance canister model. Because of the design of the handle I can't utilize the reverse blower. Please advise. Thanks


Try taping a fishing hook or some such onto the end of a straightened out coat hanger. See if you can push it up the hose and hook the sock.

Or, remove the hose entirely, and push a broom handle down the hose.

That's all I got...
