My kirby heritage II vacuum hose has a cut near the end of the metal nozzle. Is there a way to replace just the hose or even just cut off the damaged section and reattach to the metal nozzle?


We do carry a brand new Heritage II hose here. I do not know how you would cut and reattach the hose without losing hose integrity. You can try submerging the end in warm almost hot water and pulling off the end, cut the hose, and squeeze the end back in. But your hose will be shorter and I am not sure if it will work depending on how it is torn.

It is not cleaning the dust properly. it make too much noise.


It would help if you gave us more detail. What type of vacuum. Does it have a long hose and then terminate in wand and power vacuum head with a beater bar brush arrangement? If so, did you check your hose for obstructions? Disconnect the hose from the wand to see if it is sucking air. Do the same at the canister, disconnect the hose and see if it pulls air at the canister. I assume that you replaced the bag from inside the vacuum and cleaned up any dirt that may have accumulated inside the compartment where the bag goes. Or is this a bagless type vacuum.
It would be best if you give us the make, model number and a descrption of the vacuum.

I have a Dyson DC07 and it has lost suction. I have checked the belt, cleaned the circular filter and emptied the dirt chamber. The hose still has plenty of suction but I can't use the hose the vacuum...


Here are some things you can check.First you need to see if the problem is with the suction or agitation.If the suction on the hose for using the attachments is low you either need new filters a new cyclone(they are not cleanable) or it is clogged.To check for a clogg remove the cyclone and turn on the vacuum cleaner.you can put your hand over the suction side of the handle tub and feel if it has suction there.Reinstall the cyclone and again check the hose.If it is the same you don't likley have a suction problem you have an agitation problem.The 2 belts on the DC07 are part of the clutch and when they are strectched to a certain point (3-5years) the clutch needs to be replaced.you can check the clutch by turning on the vacuum cleaner and applying slight pressure downward on the front of the vacuum head.If the vacuum makes a loud ratcheting noise or you can stop the brush from turning the problem is most likely the clutch.One last thing is to make sure the bottom plate is on correctly I often see a misaligned bottom plate and the brush dosen't hit the carpet so it dosen't pick up.  www.sewvac.com

There is minimal suction in the hose. Nothing appears to be blocking the hose.


You most likely have a gasket out of place.
1. On the bottom, there is a panel held in by two screws. Open that up. Inside you will see a white gasket that should be aligned with the hole. If it is not aligned, you will not get good suction.

2. The other gasket will you require you to take out the two screws on the blue cover (at the base of the unit where the dial is). You will see a black plastic tube with two clear tubes attached. Remove the two tubes. remove the screw holding the black plastic tube in. Inside is a red gasket. Ensure that is in the correct place. Reattach screw + clear tubing. Reattach blue cover.

Let me know if this helps.

I lost power.?


Check all filters, hoses, and the bottom. One or all maybe clogged, so you will need to clean it out. Also check the small areas where the hose attaches to the vacuum. Good Luck!

Dirt does not go in the dustdup


Take off the front top filter (the clear plastic peice where it says eureka) there should be two filters inside, the bit of foam and the peice it's attached to.

I clean both parts in warm soapy water and let dry, that always fixes the problem for me.

I cant open it


Before doing anything, make sure that the vacuum is unplugged from the outlet. After that, you are now ready to open your vacuum. Here are the steps to do so:
a) First, remove the dust cap by pressing the "cup release" button on the top rear right of the cleaner and pulling the dust cap away from the top. Set aside.
b) These first three steps are optional, but will make the process a bit easier... Now remove the hose attachment by twisting the base of the hose clockwise until the tabs line up and allow you to easily remove. Set aside.
c) Now remove the floor nozzle attachment by depressing the silver lock button located on the bottom back of the cleaner. While this is pressed in, pull the body of the vacuum and the carpet cleaning nozzle away from each other. (This is easier with two people, but can be done alone.) These steps will make the cleaner less bulky for you to take apart and work with.
1) Now on the back of the cleaner, you will see 9 screws. (3 on each side of the rear of the body, 1 on each side of the rear base of the body, and 1 in the middle of the hose actuator valve [the knob that switches between floor and hose]). Unscrew all of these and set them aside. *see note at bottom
2) Now that these 9 screws are removed and placed aside, you will now be able to remove the rear panel of the vacuum. Do so and move it out of your way. Keep in mind that the power cord runs through a hole in this panel and cannot be removed entirely without disconnecting wires (which I wouldn't recommend if you don't know what you're doing).
3) Now on the inside rear of the cleaner, your should see 1 screw in the top right holding the power cord in place. 1 screw below that on the right side holding a number of white and black wires in place. There will be 1 screw on top right of the gray plastic that the floor nozzle had attached to, and 1 on the bottom left. There are also 2 screws at the same height (1 on the left and 1 on the right) about a quarter way up from the bottom screwed into the green plastic on the left and right of the gray plastic floor nozzle attachment. Remove these 2 screws.
4) Now look on the outside left and right of the base of the cleaner. You should see 4 screws (2 on each side). Remove these.
5) Now you should be able to remove the front panel to expose the motor which will be surrounded by black foam and resting in a circular hole in the bottom. Voila! You have now opened up your vacuum cleaner.

*Something to keep in mind before removing the screw from the hose actuator valve is to pay attention to the position of the knob. Also look inside the hole of the hose coupling while turning the knob to note how the valve moves inside the cleaner. When reassembling, make sure that this is in the correct position.
