Proper Hose Length Sizing for Swimming Pool Pressure Cleaners


Belive it or not... too many swivels add to the problem!
Most people think if I add a swivel right here, where it begins to coil then tangle, it will fix the problem, but yet the problem remains!!!

The manufacturer recommends this for the proper layout of the hoses; from the wall all the way to the head:

If the hoses are old, they may no longer be pliable enough? You should replace them with new ones: 1 section Clear Soft Hose, and 2 sections of White, not so soft hoses.
  • First, determine the deepest part of the pool/pool "Depth"
  • That is how "Long" the 1st hose is to be. The softer clear hose
  • Now... Attach all the hoses together, 1st hose already cut per the above and the other two "White" hoses - UNCUT.
    • Place the head at the point on the deck where the wall adaptor is for the hose to attach
  • Walk around the pool holding the wall adaptor
    • Move your hand forward towards the edge of the pool to mark the total length of the pool, if you come to a point where your hand is over the water, hose is too short, move your hand back, if your hand is too far back away from the waters edge, the hose too long
  • Once you get back to the starting point, you should now know how long the hose needs to be. You could probably have 1' - 4', maybe more maybe less? Take note of the excess hose, that will need to be cut off, too long of hose will only tangle up. BUT WAIT, THERES MORE....
    • You may think that I now just cut off the excess length? You would be wrong!!!
    • Lets say you have 4' of excess hose...
    • Follow the hose in your hand to the next swivel, disconnect it.
    • NOW Cut. But... cut off 2' from one of the white hoses, AND 2' from the other white hose.
    • Reconnect the swivel. You have now cut off 4' of excess hose.
Recap: What you have done is with the 3 pieces of hose is cut it & adjusted it to the correct lengths. The soft hose is as long as the pool is deep. The two White Harder pieces are Exactly Even!! The way it should be!

Now, the Back up valve will be placed on the soft hose about 3-4' away from the head.

Follow this and the hose should not tangle. And...
Heed any advice about storing the hose coiled as it is not good, As this advice will be ABSOLUTELY CORRECT!
Whenever storing, always store in a straight line, otherwise it will retain the memory of the coil. If this has already happened, then take hose & stretch over the deck in the sun for the better part of the day, this will relax the hose & erase any memory of the coil.

Good Luck

Extend a Vacuum's Hose "Lifespan"


There are several things that can lead to a fairly short "life span" on a vacuum hose. Hoses need to be replaced periodically anyway, but getting the maximum use means reduced cost for your investment. Common problems are: worn out hose, leaky hose, broken wire, loose connections, and of course, clogs.
Normal wear and tear may seem to be a problem that there's no help for, however anyone can reduce this on their vacuum hose. Some examples include:

Hang hose properly. Improper storage may promote wear on the hose and stress on the wiring. I recommend detaching from vacuum and wands, and hanging across two large hooks or hangars. This places weight upon two areas of hose, instead of just one.

Placing a hose sock on the hose will help reduce wear and tear caused by dragging back and forth on the floor, corners, and other surfaces. The heavier the fabric, the better protection.

Pulling the vacuum behind you while cleaning creates high stress on both the hose material and internal wiring. Indications of problems are loss of airflow/suction at end of hose for the first, and power nozzle not operating or intermittently operating. Avoid pulling vacuum behind you; move vacuum closer to the cleaning area to clean.

Loose connections are pretty much inevitable over time. The connections from hose to wand, wand to wand, and wand to power nozzle all are susceptible to wear and breakage. Replace hose and wand connections that are broken, loose, and/or blackened. Those things can cause bad electrical shock.

Clogs are often caused by a large item being vacuumed, but more often are due to a long, thin object being sucked up, sticking in the hose, and other stuff backing up against it. This will eventually cut off air flow and result in a burned out motor if not remedied.

Maximize your vacuum hose’s use by following the above suggestions.

I have a S3765 Hoover Wind Tunnel with a crack in the hose close to the cannister. I know wires run through the hose and that there are wire connections on either end of the hose. The replacement hose...


If the vacuum has been maintained properly and runs well it may be worth repairing. The hose is pricey but less than a new vacuum. Many new vacuums today, especially lower priced ones are very poor quality and don't last much longer than a year. It appears by the schematics of your model you can replace just the hose section or the entire hose assembly. Replacing the hose only would require removing the ends of your old hose and installing them on the new hose.

Beater bar lost power - even after pushing reset button


Hi There,

If you've already tried resetting the power brush, and it still won't come on, this indicates that your electrical hose has most likely gone bad, and needs to be replaced.

This is actually a pretty common problem on Panasonic canisters, as well as Kenmore canisters (Panasonic makes Kenmore canisters).

In order to confirm this, what you'll need to do is purchase a simple electrical tester from Home Depot, or Lowes, and test the hose to make sure you have power making it through the hose.

To test this, remove the hose from the wand so you just have the handle of the hose in your hand with nothing attached to it. Put both ends of the electrical tester into the two female receptacles that plug into the wand, turn the machine on, and make sure that your hose is set to the carpet setting.

You definitely should have power coming to the hose at this part. If there is no power getting her, this indicates that your hose has gone bad. You may also just purchase a new hose (see link below), and if for any reason this doesn't fix your problem, you may return the hose to us within 60 days for a full 100% refund.

If the hose does have power at the end of it, repeat the process with the wand attached to the hose, but not connected to the power nozzle. If you have power getting to the hose, but not the wand, this indicates your wand has gone bad and need to be replaced. If you have power to your wand and hose, this probably indicates that the cord in the neck of the power nozzle has gone bad. Inspect the wire in the neck of the nozzle and see if you see any burning, or discoloration in on the male prongs.

I'm pretty sure that you'll just need to replace the hose, this is by far the most common problem on Panasonic canisters.

There are two different styles of hoses for Panasonic canisters. In order to find out which one is yours, remove the hose from the canister itself. Where the hose cuff plugs into the canister portion, look at the electrical prongs. There is either a 2 prong hose, or 3 prong hose. Here are links to both of the hoses. If your hose is a 3 position hose with a setting for bare floors, and carpets, then you have the 3 prong hose.

If this didn't fix your problem, please just use the comment section on this repair page and let me know what the outcome was after testing it with the electrical tester, and I'll be more then happy to try and do some more advanced diagnosing with you.

I hope this was helpful to you. If you found this helpful, please be so kind and rate my repair helpful, or leave feedback for me, this is really what keeps Fixya repair experts answering free questions, rather then just the premium questions that we get paid for. This is greatly appreciated.

Part of the hose is torn. Do I have to replace the whole hose or can it be repaired ?


Which hose is torn? The hose underneath or the hose with the extension wand in the handle?

Where I work we can sometimes repair the wand hose, and the little hose undernath is usually a cheap costing replacement.

How do I change the setting on the capture bagless vacuum from hose to floor?


-Pull out your hose from the hose port, and it should be ready to go. If it is not sucking, then perhaps you have an obstruction in you hose. On the back of the cleaner where the hose attaches, you can squeeze the two tabs and the hose will release and you can check it for clogs. One easy way to tell, run the machine with the hose plugged in the hose port. Listen to the sound then take out the hose and listen. If there is a sound of release of air that is significant, then you have a clog in your lower duct hose(the hose that comes out of the lower half of the vacuum. You can usually remove this type of blockage from the underneath where the roller brush is, fairly easily. If it is in your hose, then you can try shaking it out. Sometimes you can see the clog and remove it easily. I am not sure if this was your problem I think maybe it is because there is not anything special to use the hose attachment.

We inherited an ancient canister Electrolux. There's plenty of suction with the hose out, but almost none when the hose is in. The hose is clear, and I can see no holes. What could the trouble be?



If it is an older fabric braided hose, which I expect it is, the rubber inside has been dried out for the last number of years. A great test is put the machine end of the hose in the blower side of the vacuum, under the little door on top. Spray the hose with windex or some other window cleaner, and cover the open end of the hose with your hand, turn on the vacuum, there will be bubbles all over the hose, this demonstrates how leaky the hose really is.
This is like trying to drink through a straw that has a hole in it.....does not work very well.

Do not under any circumstances buy another fabric type hose (USED) it will be just as leaky as yours.

The newer hoses are vinyl and last much longer. Also in most all cases when you replace the hose on these older electroluxs' they will clean as well as when new.....

Call most any vac shop they will have replacement hoses.

I want to reconnect a hose to my dysons upright


You can find replacement hoses on eBay for the price of $20 to $30. Search for "DC07 hose". That, obviously is the easiest route. But, you can repair the old hose if the damage is near one end or the other of the hose. Damage in the middle of the hose will not leave enough length for effective use and thus buying a new hose makes since.

If you decide to repair the hose, you will need to use wire cutters to snip the wire in the hose below a point where the damage is and then use scissors or an exacto knife to trim away excess plasitic hose above the snip.

Remove the damaged hose section from the fitting that was cut off. You may need to use pliars to pull on the wire until it comes out. Check the inside of the fitting and remove any remaining debris so you have all of the grooves as clean as possible. The inside of the fitting is threaded like a nut and "screws" onto the hose. You will need some form of adhesive to help keep the hose attached to the fitting. I use silicone caulk for that purpose. Squeeze some into the threads on the fitting, screw the hose on and allow to dry over night.

Hope this helps.
