You'd be better off using duct tape on it. Ensure the wiring is intact first, then wrap a couple wraps of electrical tape around the hose, then 2-3 of duct tape. May not be pretty, but safer than cutting the hose and wiring just right to get everything safely connected.

My mother's Bissell 66t6 has a tear in the hose very near the handle. I'd like to remove all of the duct tape she put there and disassemble the handle so that I could shorten the hose by a few inches at...


I can't say for sure without seeing your model but this can. E done on most vacuums as long as it doesn't have electric wires to run a power nozzle. Some hoses simply unscrew from the fitting and some have an extra connector. The easiest way if it won't easily come out by twisting the hose counter-clockwise is to cut the hose at the bad spot and pull on the hose and it will come apart so you can remove it. Sometimes they have glue or silicone holding them in but if you pull you should be able to remove the old hose and screw the good part back in.

Should I replace the vacuum hose or simply shorten it if a hole developed near the vacuum canister base? What are the disadvantages of this? For now I am doing duct tape, which is not so elegant as dust...


You can just shorten it as long as there is not a underlying power supply in the hose itself. after you shorten it use a "hose clamp" to hold the shorten hose in place. :)

My Hoover Steam Vac Spin Scrub aw/ Clean Surge


Greetings,

A few more things that you can try on your SteamVac. First remove the dirty water solution tank from the machine completely. You should see where the solution tank was just sitting, a plastic casing with a whole in it. This is actually where the suction from the motor goes into. Turn the machine on and feel the hole there for any suction coming out. Did you feel suction coming from the hole? If yes, then your issue is going to be something with the dirty solution tank, because without the tank it's sucking fine. If you didn't feel any suction from this hole, it may indicate that there is something more serious that needs to be taken care of.

One other place you may look on your machine (as long as the upholstery hose for stairs and furniture is already attached to the machine, and you don't have to hook anything up to the dirty water tank to use the attachments) while the dirty solution tank is out of it, is where the attachment hose makes connection with the vacuum. If you recline the handle down while you have the dirty water tank out, look in the back of the handle housing for a hose that enters the housing 3/4 down the housing. Now follow the hose on the inside of the handle not the outside, follow it up to the point where it goes into the neck, near where the suction hole is. Right at the end of the hose, right before the hose cuff, is this ripped, or damaged here?

Please feel free to request a clarification to this repair if you still need addtional help. If you can leave me the model number exactly that would help me help you, lol. I hope that this was helpful to you. If this was helpful to you, may you please click the helpful Thumbs Up Icon in the lower right hand corner of this repair?

Thank you so much,

Hole in hose


according to the schematic it doesnt look like you can take that coupling apart. Usually when one has a problem with an electric canister hose its just easier to replace the hose because trying to shorten it without damaging the internal electrical wires and reassembling with the hose working is very unlikely. the hose part # is 43433113. you might have a hard time finding it tho. that hose was discontinued on 1/09 (same time that dirt devil bought out hoover and moved them over to china.) if you need anything else feel free to let me know.

I have a torn hose on my Samsung Quiet Storm should I try to repair or toss it. Mfg no longer makes replacement hose


The early hose on these was prone to tearing. If you are careful you can shorten it once. Beyond that it will become too short to use on the vac properly. This hose was copied from the original Black and Decker hose and power head kit and was likely upgraded by a flex vinyl molded hose which should be more resistant to tearing.
Some vac shops carry hose "refills" and a Samsung dealer may have one in stock even if the hose was discontinued. The vac is good quality in its general design and worth fixing although the original diameter of this hose may be tough to match

Shorten hose, Beam


If your Beam has a fixed handle RUBBER hose with switches and is deteriorating between coils, you can dismantle the handle (or wall end) with about 6 screws. If it has a swivel handle with switch it can not be shortened. If it is not switched and non electric, the cuffs simply unscrew and the vinyl can be cut and reglued with vinyl adhesive.
You will see once open the handle that the hose has fine wiring wound through its shell and this wiring controls the switching between the handle and the vac. You must unwind the hose from the inside handle stem, cut short with a utility knife and wire cutters and then screw the fresh hose end back onto the handle stem.
The hose should also be glued from the inside (after cleaning with a dry cloth) with a contact type cement suitable for rubber and plastic. Generally PLIOBOND is used.
Then splice your wiring and reassemble the handle.

I have a large lego stuck in the middle of the hose on my hoover


Ok This same thing happend to my wifes vacuum. If its on the straight part use a small broom handle. If its down deeper you can cut the handle in short pieces as if to make a small train. Drill a small hole in the center of the blocks or broom handle pieces. I cut mine 1 1/2 inches long so they can make the turn. Next take a stick and force the clog back words.keep tapping and shacking the hose and stick till it drives the clog back. Keep your tool hanging In a good place till you or someone else needs it. I had to make 2 of them, Because she has a small light weight vacuum with a smaller hose on it. i got a dial rod that fit just right in the hose, And made a uncloger for the small vacuum also.

hope this was helpfull

Wiring diagram s3755 hoover


Today I shortened my hose by 4" to get around a tear problem. You can use an Ohm meter to find the right 4 wires. When looking from the top of the canister with the hose heading to your left, the wires should be:
White (furthest connector away from you)
Black - to the switch
Red
Blue
With the Red and Blue going to the speed con trol curcuit board.

Electrolux Renaissance Hose Replacement


Notice how the hose has a groove just around the outer edge of the gray plastic near the white plastic insert. The hose is held into the handle buy two "tongues" inserted into this groove. One of these tongues is on the end of the top plastic piece of the handle. The second is on the piece of plastic that is slid into the little hole at the base of the handle and it is visible in the picture.

To remove the first, you'll have to remove the two screws in the top of the handle that hold the top plastic piece. This can be a challenge unless you have the right tool. It's essentially a hex-star allen wrench tool that is required, I'm guessing about 1/16 inch. I had one in my tool box that fit. Remove the screws and pop the top plate off. This frees the first tongue from the groove. Now, just get a screw driver (or use your finger) to press the plastic piece inserted in the hole at the bottom of the handle. Press from the "t" side and this should slide right out. Now your hose will slide right out of the handle and you can replace the old with new. Re-insert the small plastic insert, and refasten the top plastic piece of the handle and you're good to go.

Torn Hose


HI.

You can use evo stick glue.
But normally once it has ripped open it will do it again so probably best option fit new hose.
