Question about Vacuums
Over 21 years repairing vacuum cleaners, I have removed yards of duct tape,surgical tape and package tape from hoses.wands and cords. I have found the best repair method for torn hoses is a product called "Stretch and Seal". This is a silicone-based tape that has no adhesive, but adheres to itself as it is stretched around the hose. If there are any breaks. debris will not stick, because there is no adhesive. Because it literally becomes one with the hose. this is a permanent repair. The one caveat is that the applied surface must be clean, with no grease or loose dirt. At $7 a roll, it is not cheap, but saving upwards of $100 or more on a new hose is worth the expense.

I checked all the pipes and seals. There is a flexible pipe which you can see underneath that connects the front rotating brush assembly to the vacuum system. This pipe can crack and loss of suction occurs when using it upright. The pipe can be repaired temporarily with strong fabric sticky backed tape (e.g. carpet seal tape). A new pipe can be fitted with a few tools.
