Question about Vacuums

2 Answers

I want to install a new hose on a Sears vacuum Mod #116.23812300. How do I remove the Hose Connection Cover(#4370325)? It appears to be a flexible plastic part, however, it will not move from it's position on the old hose.

    The question pertains to a Sears vacuum cleaner. Reply is of no value. Thanx anyway.

  • Hert May 07, 2008

    I did find a way to solve the problem. You're right, a photo would have helped in stating the problem. Your reply did not address the fact that this particular hose is wrapped with electric wires, which complicates the situation. Your solution may work with a hose without electrical wiring. Thanx for your respose.

You are trying to remove the flexible hose part from the end correct? If you post a picture of the item that would be very helpful since the numbers you posted really didn't help much.

Usually you can just take a flat headed screwdriver and pry out the old hose from the side of the connection piece. Let me know if I am not understanding correctly and I would be glad to help you.

thanks

Only suction from hose


What again for the third time? Already answered this but if it helps:

If you have taken the bottom end of the machine apart, you might not have reassembled it correctly so that the path to the floor (base) plate is obstructed when the vacuum cleaner body is laid back, otherwise:

You have either a blockage in the section of the cleaner in the vicinity of the short flexible hose and the floor (base) plate or the the short flexible hose has become detached at one or both ends.

1. Stand the machine upright with the beater bar in the "off " position. Machine switched off but plugged into the mains outlet.
2. Lay machine on its left hand side. You will see the short flexible hose uppermost. Check that it is attached at both tends and has not split or cracked. Check for obvious visible obstruction inside.
3. Remove the floor (base) plate by releasing the three plastic clips with a quarter turn anti-clockwise. Lift floor plate forwards and check no obstruction. Replace floor plate. Stand machine upright on floor.
4. Press two plastic clips to release the inspection cover, on bottom right hand side of machine (when standing behind it). Look into the hole: you will now be looking down into the U-bend that leads to the hose. Switch on the machine: full suction should be at the hole on the side of the machine (otherwise the hose would not have worked). Switch off.
5. Lean the handle and machine body backwards, as though you were going to use the machine on the floor. The hole to the hose now becomes covered and you will be able to see into the short flexible hose that leads to the floor plate. Check for obstruction. Replace inspection cover.

If there's no obstruction and the flexible hose is sound and attached securely then the machine will work - there's nothing else to check.

No suction for the hand tools


If your suction is ok for normal cleaning and bad for just the hand tools then you have a blockage in the flexible hose or the "u pipe" at the bottom of the flexible hose. Un-clip the u pipe and check it for blockage. Un-clip the hose from the vacuum and you should be able to look through it when letting it hang straight down.

I just changed my bag and now it is squealing and the red bar is in window?


It would seem that your vacuum is clogged, hence the change bag indicator. Pull the hose out and and remove at the swivel connection at the base of the hose.You can use a small flashlight to check the hose, lay the hose on the floor with the light at one end and look for light at the other end. I know the grip end is curved but you should be able to see some light. Check the rear port by removing the cover located near the base, on the rear side, close to the hose swivel. Unscrew the 2 plastic screws and lift out the cover; check for a clog here. Next lay the vacuum flat on it's front and shine the light behind the brush roll and up the short black internal hose. Facing the metal sole plate, the hose should be near the right corner. Good luck.

Turn the vacuum on it's side. Pull the power nozzle end out. Unscrew, in a clockwise direction, the hose from the body/tank.
Reverse to install new hose. Screw the hose into the tank, turning counter-clockwise. Place other end into power nozzle. Ensure it's set properly.

Hoover Upright SteamVac Deluxe with stair and upholstery cleaner


Don't listen to Solution #1, it is simply NOT correct. This is the correct answer:

As you stated, you already know where the water hose connection is. It is under the easily visible port cover on the top of the base.

What is NOT easily visible is the connection for the vacuum hose. That's because the machine needs to be "reconfigured" before the hose can be attached. To "reconfigure" the machine:
1) Remove the cover off the waste water tank and notice how things appear--it will soon be important.
2) Find and remove the "panel" on the front of the waste water tank by sliding it straight up and out.
3) Replace the panel with the connector by sliding it straight down. When finished the top should look something like it did in step 1). This assures that the dirty water will be vacuumed into the waste water tank.
Done!
