Soak the end of the hose it very hot water to soften the end of the hose. Then insert a screwdiver inside the plastic end piece and flex the end of the hose inward and pull the old end off. To install the new end, bend the end of the hose into a "kidney bean" shape and push the new end on.

How to repair the lower intake flexible hose on the Hoover Agility


hoses are screwed into the end bits by turning in the do up direction
original equipment hoses are normally glued into the end piece but with a bit of determination and a flat bladed screw driver, the glue can be broken and the end removed
fit the good section of the hose into the end and screw it in using an un do direction
if it is the plastic fitting itself that is broken then weld the broken section back together
Basically use a soldering iron and heat the sections until the plastic melts back together
There are u tube pages that show how easy it is to do as they heat weld all sorts of plastic and tips on how to improve the strength of the repair. go google and type in how to weld plastic.

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...


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

My bag style RY7500 Vacuum has a broken hose.. i can't find the part to replace anywhere online. Also don't know how to remove/replace.


You don't mention where it broke. Is it broken off at the very end or in the middle somewhere. If the ends are still OK and you love that vac, you can fall back on an old trick used by the military in WWII - duct tape! Find another vac hose the same diameter (any vacuum repair store will have them in stock) or you can take a piece of hose to a home improvement store to match up.

Cut out the broken area as evenly as possible. Cut a new piece of hose the same size you removed so the hose remains the same length. Wipe off the edges to remove any dirt. Lay your tubing on newspaper or cardboard. Next you'll need a sealant that will not only stick the parts together, it will remain strong after drying. (Silicone or epoxy glues both work.) Work on ONE break at a time. Apply a thin bead between the two pieces & press together. DO NOT DISTURB but leave the pieces to dry 24hrs. After it's dry use duct tape to reinforce the break (trust me, you'll be glad you did). Then fix the other side of the cut-out.

If it broke off at the very end, remove the hose from the connectors on both ends. Clean out any old hose -if any - if the hose fits inside the connectors. If it fits over a connector, make sure the outside's clean & smooth. Insert/Apply a new hose using the sealant. Duct tape after it's dry. (Yeah, I love the stuff. Saves a ton of extra work by supporting the stressed area.)

If it's just a small crack in the hose clean the broken ends so there's no dirt. Fill the crack in the hose with a thin bead of sealant, dry & duct tape it.

I've used this trick many times, so I know it works. Good Luck!

How to change coupling machine end


Hi There, Alec from VacuumSpot here. If by coupling machine end you mean Kirby Hose End Piece <---- (This is a link so you can see the part), then it is really easy. Basically submerge the end of the hose and the coupling in hot water and once the plastic is warmed up you twist the coupling off the end of the hose. PLEASE NOTE - do not use boiling water you will cause the hose to melt - just hot.

Replace coupling to Kirby G4


Hi There,
I think what you are asking is how to fit a new hose machine end, (hard plastic bit that connects the hose to the kirby body) to the rest of the corrugated hose?.
If this is right it does vary with the really old models but for the G3 and newer which is everything up to about 20 years old it is the same and quite easy.
All you have to do is heat the end of the hose up with hot water - not boiling or you will shrink the hose and kind of twist the new end on. You will need to have removed the old one first which is the same just heat up and twist off.

Remove hose adaptor for eureka maxima to replace with new one


We banged on the black rubbery part that holds the hard plastic adapter in place until the old adapter was broken into pieces then removed the pieces. The new adapter just simply snapped into the rubbery black connector piece. I then used a screw driver to scrape the gasket out of the old adapter and put it into the new one.

simple and rquires no tools. Fill your sink with hot water and set the end in water with attachment on it. Within a few minutes the end is soft enough to slip out.
setting the hose end in the water again will let you simply slip the hose into the new attachment with ease.

Bissell carpet cleaner


The water sprayers on your Bissell are probably clogged. I had this problem this morning, myself, with my machine, about 15 months old. They get clogged up with mineral deposits. This is a *fairly* easy thing to fix yourself. Read all the way to the end before trying this fix.

Unplug the Bissell. Remove the water container pieces from the top of the base. You'll probably reveal two red plastic pieces mounted in the Bissell's base, about .75" x .75". These spray water on your brushes when you press the water-and-soap trigger at the top of the Bissell's handle. These water sprayers tend to clog. See the metal spring running up the hose, behind each red water sprayer? As you squeeze the red plastic sides of one red water sprayer, use a screwdriver or other tool under the spring to wedge up the hose, to release the sprayer from its mount in the base. Stick a finger in the hole of the base of the Bissell where the sprayer was mounted and run it around the edges there including on the underside of the base to clean out any gunk you can find. Clean any gunk you can off the red water sprayer with an old toothbrush.

Now you need to remove the water sprayer from the hose. You need a pair of pliers. Use the pliers to squeeze the brass colored clip that is keeping the red water sprayed mounted to the end of the small hose there. Move the clip down the hose so it compresses the spring and is no longer on the red plastic water sprayer. Now you can twist and pull the red water sprayer out of the end of the hose. You'll need a little hand strength to do this. Just be careful not to break the water sprayer by using a tool. They're not particularly delicate, but breaking one would render your Bissell useless until it was replaced, so use a little care.

When you've removed a red water sprayer from the hose, put the outer end of the red water sprayer in your mouth and seal your lips around it, and try blowing through it. You can't blow air through it, right? It's clogged. Open up a paper clip and push it back-and-forth through the small hole in the end of the water sprayer back towards its middle. You'll probably push out a line of white mineral deposits. Clean them off the water sprayer with the old toothbrush, and try blowing through the water sprayer again. If air passes through clearly, you've fixed it. Now you have to put it back together. Push the water sprayer back on the end of the hose. Use the pliers to reposition the brass clip on the end of the hose over the water sprayer. Push the red water sprayer back into position in the base of the Bissell.

Now do the same for the other red water sprayer.

I had a problem when I fixed this on mine this morning, because when I pulled one water sprayer off, the hose advanced up under the spring and I couldn't reattach the red water sprayer, because it couldn't reach the end of the hose. So try to use the brass clip or some other means (rubber band, tape, another clip) to keep the hose from crawling up inside the spring after you pull the red water sprayer off the hose. If the hose gets up under the spring anyway, despite your best efforts, I fixed this by removing the six screws on top of the Bissell base (the surface of which the water tank mounts on top of), and then pried it up. You can pull out the hose, reattach the red water sprayers to the hoses, position the hose *very carefully* inside the base (there are mounts under there they need to fit into, so you don't break anything), push the red water sprayers through the mount holes and mount them, and then reattach the screws to the base.

There's something else you may need to do that can help get the water flowing. This one's easier. The Bissell uses pumps, which need to be primed. Sometimes an air pocket inside the machine keeps water from flowing. To prime the pumps, separate the two water tank pieces. Fill the base as usual and mount it on the Bissell without the top water tank piece. Plug the Bissell in and **turn it on**. (The Bissell must be running to do this.) Kneeling on the floor in front of the Bissell, reach up and press the soap and water release trigger at the top of the Bissell's handle and hold it in as if you wanted water to go through. On top of the water tank is a plastic grommet hole about 1 inch in diameter, through which you pour water to fill the tank. Seal that hole with the flat of your hand. You'll feel a bit of suction. Lift your hand up and down a few times. Release the trigger and repeat a few times. Now that you've cleaned out your water sprayers and primed the Bissell's internal pumps, I'm hoping water will GUSH through your Bissell once again.

As you probably have learned the hard way, as I did, it's VERY important to do a lot of cleaning of the Bissell after each use, more than the manual tells you to do. Clean the bottom of the unit. Empty all the water. Thoroughly rinse out both water container pieces. Unscrew the three clear plastic pieces, one in front, two on the sides, that surround the brushes, and rinse them thoroughly in water. Clean off the brushes and all the lint and gunk around and above the brushes. (A water spray bottle and toothbrush are helpful here.) Tip the machine and blow all the water out of the hole in the base. Release the red clip springs on the red water sprayers and blow on them. Doing this will slow the failure of the Bissell. It's a great little machine for the money, but it does have a learning curve and need more pampering than a vacuum cleaner, doesn't it??

Good luck!

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.
