Replace vacuum hose
Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. You should contact the place where you purchased your vacuum, or if it is a big box store, you would need to supply us with the brand name, model # and the serial # for the vacuum and then you can contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or to contact the vacuum cleaner factory phone #, you can use the Google search site to locate the factory or manufacturer or re-send a message thru FixYa with the info and we will try to get you the information you needs to purchase a new hose.

How can I replace or repair the small hose that is split connecting the brush roll case and the vacuum itself. It does disconnect to the main body of the vacuum. can the hose be replaced?


get an exploded parts diagram of your machine. if the hose (part) is listed separately, then a replacement should be available from the manufacturer. otherwise you may need to take the vacuum in for service from a dealer shop. More than likely, if it is NOT warranty work, it will be less expensive to replace the item.

Tip

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.

Model UH60010, Series X12.0, Mfg code K09A. While attempting to use the hose and the extensions to clean shelves, my wife reported no suction. I removed the brush roller and the plastic piece just below...


There are six different reasons a vacuum can lose suction, a plugged vacuum hose, bad motor, full vacuum bag, or cracked or damage hoses. Purchasing a vacuum cleaner can be a costly expense while repairing the suction on the unit can be virtually free. Most suction loss problems on a vacuum can be easily fixed or remedied with common house hold tools and very little technical expertise.
If your vacuum cleaner losses suction, the first and easiest solution is to check the bag. If the vacuum cleaner bag is full suction will be greatly reduced and the unit will become ineffective. A vacuum cleaner works by passing air through the bag fibers leaving dirt and debris behind inside the bag. If the refuse bag becomes full, airflow is restricted, limiting the amount of air passing through the vacuum bag resulting in loss of suction. When replacing the vacuum bag always consult your owners manual to insure that the vacuum bag seals with the vacuum inlet hose. If your vacuum cleaner bag is not tightly sealed to the vacuum inlet hose you will decrease the air flow through the bag resulting in loss of suction.
The second and sometimes most common reason for loss of suction on a vacuum cleaner is a plugged vacuum hose. If the hose becomes plugged, air flow will become restricted. To unplug a vacuum hose detach it from the machine and inspect the inside. If there is a restriction in the hose, remove it with your fingers and replace the hose onto the unit. If the hose is long and the debris is hard to get too, a broom handle or other long object can be passed through the hose to dislodge the debris. Most vacuum cleaners contain more that one suction hose, so make sure to check each one by process of elimination. Another area that can become easily plugged on a vacuum cleaner is under the lower base of the unit by the roller brush. Large debris can get caught in this area and restrict air flow to the hose.
If your vacuum refuse bag is not full and the suction hoses are not plugged the next thing to check is the condition of the hoses. Many hoses are made from plastic which can easily tear or crack. If your vacuum cleaner shows signs of wear or are cracked they need to be replaced. Even the smallest hole in a vacuum hose can leak enough air to greatly diminish the suction potential of your unit. Replace your vacuum cleaner parts with OEM parts from the original manufacturer to ensure the tightest fit.
Most vacuum cleaners contain filters. Filters are used as a last line of defense to remove dust and smaller debris particles before the air is recycled back into the environment. If vacuum cleaner filters become dirty or plugged they also can decrease the amount of air traveling through the unit. Some filters can be easily rinsed with water whereas others need to be replaced. It is important to check your owners manual before rinsing a vacuum filter.
The last and probably least common problem for a vacuum cleaner to loose suction is a bad or failing vacuum motor. Over time vacuum motors lose power due to worn carbon brushes or long term damage. A vacuum cleaners worst enemy is moisture. If water or moisture is sucked into the vacuum motor it will greatly diminish the amount of suction the unit has. Replacing a vac motor can be a costly and time consuming ordeal. In some cases, replacing a vacuum motor can outweigh the cost of buying a new vacuum. Vacuum suction is measured in water lift which can easily be measured by using a water lift gauge. If the water lift measured in inches, falls below half the original water lift specifications for the unit, it is time to replace your motor. Most vacuum cleaner repair shops carry this type of equipment and can easily tell you if it is time for a new vac motor.

Can the damaged hose 8 inces from handle be cut then replace hose


If the hose is non-wired then you can fix this yourself. When you Plug the cuff into your wall inlet does the vacuum turn on automatically? If so then you should be able to trim the hose with no ill effects other than losing eight inches of cleaning area.

If the hose has a switch on it's handle that turns the vacuum on and off, you will probably need a technician to fix the hose. Some wired hoses even have High Voltage lines in them and should never be taken apart.
