Why would my simplicity vacuum hose not work? the sweeper itself works but cannot use the attachments?

If the hose is partially clogged it could cause it to not have much suction but may still seem to be vacuuming properly because the brush roll is agitating the carpet. Depending on which model you have if there is no suction at the hose end there is likely none at the floor. If your model is a tandem air it could still be in the hose or in the valve where switch from floor to the hose. The valve can get plugged and it may still vacuum floors very well because the direct air motor is still blowing a lot of air to clean the floor but the clean air motor is not providing any suction. If you have a tandem air model it may be best to take it to your local Simplicity or Riccar dealer for repairs.

When I use the hose on my dyson animal there is a hissing sound so I am wondering if there is a blockage. How do I remove the hose to check this?

There are many different models of Animal. I need your model number to tell you how to remove the hose.

Question re hose and head

Hi There,
Ok so the hose definitely cannot be interchanged, all the dysons have a different (slightly) fitting where the hose clips to the vacuum. The head I think can be fitted from a DC19. To be sure I would buy the correct one for your model. Dyson have a bad habit of using different fittings for different models to force you into buying the proper dyson one. With the DC05 and earlier you could adapt heads from normal vacuums but they stopped it from dc08 on.

The hose split. I ordered a replacement but can't figure out how to remove or loosen the back panel to get the old hose out and the new one in.


I'm sorry, I thought I had one of these models in stock here so I could take it out of the box and photograph this repair for you. Unfortunately I didn't have the exact same model, however I do have a similar model to yours in stock, which I used to try and demonstrate how to get the new hose in.

This was a terrible design by Eureka BTW. The new model I photographed today had this problem fixed, and they bottom hose holder no longer is screwed in.

If you look at the very bottom on the back of your vacuum cleaner, You'll see where this plastic cover piece goes over top of the hose. You need to remove one screw, the one all the way at the bottom in order to install the new hose properly. You'll need to use a T20 Star bit Screw driver, which is kind of rare, and you may need to go out and buy one, as most people don't have these types of screw drivers.

Here's the picture of the newer model I opened up. If you look where my finger is pointing, you should see the screw:

Once you've removed this screw, simply pull the flap that goes over top of the hose out, just far enough so you can slide the new hose behind it.

Once you've pulled the hose about half way through, you can then screw in the screw, and you attach the hose proper way on both ends.

Hopefully this helped you. If you have still have questions on how to fix this, please just use the comment field at the bottom of the page. I'm always more then happy to help, and I'll try and wait until I get your particular model in stock so I can take better pictures of the repair. If you found this solution helpful, please be so kind and rate the repair helpful by, or by leaving feedback for me, this is really appreciated by the FixYa community.

Thanks so much,

I just bought a Miele s558 Silver Moon, seems like it's from 2000 or so. If it's in good condition, can I expect this machine to last another ten years? Or would it have been better to buy a lower end...

Greetings from GoVacuum,

Ahh, the Miele Silver Moon model S558i. This is great model that I know a lot about because I actually own this exact model. I have had my Silver Moon now for going on 10 years, with almost no problems. The motors in the Silver Moons are excellent, and should last 20 or 25 years without problems. This particular model did have one major problem however. This is the first model that Miele put the suction controls in the handle of the hose of the vacuum, allowing the user to easily adjust the suction setting with fingertip controls. The problem with these models is that static electricity (usually happens when vacuum carpeting) causes the hose to shut down the power to off. You can be in the middle of vacuuming, and all of a sudden the vacuum will turn off. You can easily turn back on the vacuum with the push of a button, but it's irratating for sure.

Miele did come up with a solution for this problem with a newly redesigned hose, part number SES125-3. Since this new design has come out I haven't had a single issue with my hose. The way you can tell if you have the old or new hose is by the numbers (or lack of ) on the different suction levels. If your hose goes up to 1100 Watts, then this is the older style hose. If you're hose simply has a minimum to high setting with no numbers at all on the hose, then this is the redesigned 125-3 hose.

If you have the older style hose, I would get the dealer that sold you the vacuum to exchange the old hose for the new hose, you definitely don't want to have to buy that new hose ($150+). If you have the new hose, then I would say stick with the Silver Moon over the newer Miele models, in my opinion the Silver Moon is one of the most durable models that Miele has ever made.

The only other thing you need to be careful of is the cord reel. When you are retracting the cord reel, it's best to kind of guide the cord back in, and take it slow rather then just stepping on the cord rewind pedal. The cord reel can sometimes be touchy, especially if you are rough with it. If you're careful with it, you should never have any problem with the vacuum cleaner as long as you change the filters on a regular basis as well as the bags.

I hope this helps, if you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me at chris (dot) jones (at) govacuum (dot) com.

Thank you,

Chris Jones

It has lost most of its suction power...what to do?

clean all the filters if this doesn't help then check for blockages at head, hose and entrance to collection chamber

Hose for G3 Kirby doesn't fit Sentria

Yes G3 and G4 had different gasket thus the suction blower connector connecting Kirby hose to the unit on later models is different. You do not need to replace entire hose but just the plastic part that connects to the vacuum. You can find it HERE. To remove old connector you may have to submerge the end of the hose into hot water (not to hot to touch) so the vinyl becomes soft and you can bend it in with finger bringing plastic end over the lip on the molded end of the hose.

Good Luck
