Do Not Cut the hose!
It has wiring inside to control the vac and power head. This is a swivel handled hose with both low and high voltage contacts in it. The same wiring which gives the hose its ribbing, is conducting current for two applications,
If your hose has a switched handle, a very experienced, trained AERUS Electrolux tech will a have a tough time doing this job and will likely refuse as it is not recommended per company policy.
You can purchase a shrink wrap tube which will prolong the life of the hose if it has not collapsed, however this is a short term fix.
I could walk you through this as I have done it before ...Unfortunately, even if you were able to dismantle the hose successfully you would not be able to purchase the wire terminals which you would cut off the end when shortening . Sorry its a proprietary part.

Hose webbing has ripped where attaches to wand. How does hose attach to handle so bad part can be removed & reattached? Used to be able to fix on other vacs by twisting hose, this one will not budge


Anon, some are molded to plastic and not removable. To me, this looks like a perfect time for duct tape, A million and one uses don't you know. Cut out bad section and try threading what hose is left into the other hoses coil and duct tape it securely together.

My kirby heritage II vacuum hose has a cut near the end of the metal nozzle. Is there a way to replace just the hose or even just cut off the damaged section and reattach to the metal nozzle?


We do carry a brand new Heritage II hose here. I do not know how you would cut and reattach the hose without losing hose integrity. You can try submerging the end in warm almost hot water and pulling off the end, cut the hose, and squeeze the end back in. But your hose will be shorter and I am not sure if it will work depending on how it is torn.

When I was vacuuming, I noticed that the cord kind of unravelled, so how do I fix it?


Cut off the broken hose close to the good section of hose with good wire cutters. Un twist or unscrew the hose out of the handle. now screw the good section of the hose back into the handle.

My dyson animal 25 wand won't go into tube


We have a DC65 Animal, the extension tube on the hose would not slide into the top of the handle.

The solution:
1. Slide the hose into the cradle on the handle
2. Push the tube down close to its stowed position
3. Near the bottom of the hose, gently push the hose against the handle with one hand and then push the tube down with your other hand
4. Close the cap on the top of the handle

The power cord is split near the base unit


There are 2 screws on each side of the top cover of the Rainbow ‘E’ series vacuum cleaners located behind the decal windows. To get to the screws; use a non-scratching tool such as a plastic putty knife and pry out a corner of the plastic window, carefully pull out the plastic window and decal and remove the 2 screws. Repeat this process for both windows and then just lift up the top cover to expose the inside.

Split hose?

How do you remove the plastic end fitted to the flexible hose


Not necessarily. Some Dyson models have an all inclusive flexi hose which attaches to the handle spine. Check EBay for replacement flexi hoses - UK has many sellers - or handles which have the metal pole and the flexi tube attached. 
Alternatively take off the flexi hose from the bottom rear of the Dyson - it can come out via a press in lock release but it may take some time to do this. Once that is done the flexi hose should come down freely from the metal tube. If it doesnt then you may need to consider both replacements.
Dont forget to rate, thanks.

Either the filters are clogged, the hose has a clog in it, or the dirt inlet down by the brush roll is clogged. Pull the hose off and see if you have suction at the end of the hose, that will tell you which way to look for a clog.
