Try using a broom handle and push it out the the same end that it came in. If that doesn't work, straighten a metal coat hanger and make a small hook on the end of it. Reach in and grab it.

Good Luck!

    You can try but you will need someone else to help you more than likely. I think the snake will be too flimsy. Broom handle or a stiff curtain rod.

I sucked up a sock and think it's in the hose


Remove the hose from the vacuum cleaner and push a broom handle all the way through the hose. If its in there, that will remove it.

I sucked in a sock or something. How do I get at it?


remove the lower floor unit plate,, and use a wire coat hanger to fish out the ' sock '. if it is way up the hose - then you might need to remove the hose from the unit and try and work out the blockage using your wire or a stiff dowel.

Any tricks to putting on a central vacuum hose sock? The last one took me 4 hours and I'm sure there must be an easier solution. It has no zipper.


Send it back and get one with a zipper. :) Okay did it come in a tube or with a tube? They are really necessary when putting a hose sock on. You first want to put the hose sock on the tube. You then slide the tube over the hose and take the hose sock off at the end. Tie the hose sock securely in place and start pulling the tube over the hose. The sock will slide off the tube and onto the hose as you go.

Clogged hose and can not get the handle off


The best way to fix this problem is to Stick the other end of the handle into the wall inlet making the nozzle contact the pin jacks of the wall inlet. You may need to work the clog back and forth by then plugging the hose in normally. Eventually you will be able to work the clog out of the hose.

If all else fails you should use a plumbers snake.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The best thing to do is to see if you can open the power mate or powerhead, the sock is jammed in there and blocking the path of the dust and dirt. There should be some screws on the bottom to release the bottom plate or the top cover will come off, it would be one or the other It probably is stick in the gooseneck the swivel neck portion of the vacuum and or the wands or hose. If you need further help look in the owner’s manual or contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or call Sears cust serv listed below. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

I had the same problem with my vacuum. I called in for technical service and was told to push the "reset button". It turns out that there is a small red button right next to the dirt indicator light. I pushed the button, plugged the vacuum back in and started it up and it worked like a charm! :) Hope this helps!
