    I need to replace the hose. It is torn and a lot of dirt entered the bag. How do I loosen the band that holds the bag in place?

    It is the inner hose that is attached to the cloth outer bag assembly. I removed it and cut the torn part off the bottom (and plastic ties) and reattached it with new lock ties. Thanks for your attempt. The manual is awesome, but lacks a diagram of the assembly I am referring to.

Could the hose on steamvac be saved


The hose for this model when torn can only be replaced. With a torn hose you will loose suction from your floor nozzle, and performance will be decreased.

My Miele S3141 canister began acting strange this morning. No suction...so I took off the hose and checked for blockage, (nothing). Now I can't get the hose back on the canister. It just slips ar


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Air filter:
If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up dirt and has no suction the air filter might be clogged. Remove the filter and either clean or replace it as needed.
Exhaust Filter If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the exhaust filter might be clogged. Remove and clean the filter, replace it if its torn or damaged.


Vacuum Hose If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the vacuum hose might be clogged. Remove the hose from the vacuum cleaner, stretch it out straight, shine a bright flashlight in one end and try to see light through it. If no light can be seen, use something to run through the hose and free up the obstruction.
Vacuum Bag If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the vacuum bag might be full. Clean or replace the bag as recommended by the manufacturer.

Dust Cup AssemblyIf the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the dust cup assembly might not be installed tightly, or it might be cracked or broken. The dust cup must seal tightly in order to produce the right amount of suction. If it is cracked or broken, replace it. Most glues and adhesives will not successfully seal the crack.
Blower Wheel If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and there is no suction, the blower wheel might be jammed or broken. Check the blower wheel to be certain it turns freely. If it doesn't, check to see if there is anything rubbing against it. If not, but it's hard to turn, the motor is most likely the problem.

No electrical continuity within the hose of my Hoover S3670 Vacuum Cleaner. How do I disassemble bothe wnds that house the actual connections?


Those hoses are pretty close to being a sealed unit, and was meant to be replaced and not repaired. That being said, some people do fix the problem IF they can locate the problem close to either end. Most people won't mess with an open in the middle of the hose.

Unfortunately, since they are designed to be a replaced item and not a repairable item, there is no written instruction on disassembly. So it is one of those to times when you study your hose and figure out when the break is and then decide on if it is worth attempting a repair.

I have an electrolux epic 6500 sr. The change bag light came on, I changed the bag, now it won't run properly. If the bag is out and the hose attached it will run or if the bag is in and the hose is off...


First, if it runs without a bag, there's a problem with the bag lock-out switch or wiring. This needs to be replaced/repaired by an authorized Aerus Electrolux technician.

First, turn dial on top of vacuum counter-clockwise so the smallest dot lines up with the arrow. See if it stays on. If not, detach hose and turn vacuum on. Place palm of hand over intake. If it turns off, it's possible that the tubes connecting to the CVA are clogged and simply need cleaned. This is most often caused by using "made to fit" Electrolux bags. Dust is sucked through the bags and into the motor compartment of the machine. All interior parts get covered in dust and need to be cleaned. If this is the cause, the vacuum is best cleaned and repaired at an authorized Aerus Electrolux store. If the vacuum shuts off, or won't turn on before placing hand over the intake, it's probable the control valve assembly is bad and needs replaced.

Another cause is an overheated motor due to clogged screen at back of bag well, full or clogged bag, dirty afterfilter, bad wiring/connections, clogged hose, clogged power head, or bad motor. It depends largely on the type and model of cleaner. Clogged wands are also a possibility, but unlikely.

Check and clean screen at back of bag well.

Replace bag. Make sure it's a genuine Electrolux bag made by Home Solutions.

Check and replace afterfilter if necessary. These should be replaced after every six bags.

Broken and worn wiring connections are often found in the hose ends due to abuse and normal wear and tear. You can check the continuity of the hose using a continuity tester or multi-tester. If a multi-tester, turn dial to one of the Ohm settings. Place one probe into one of the terminals on the end of the hose. This will be referred to as T1. Touch the other probe to each of the terminals/connections on the other end of the hose. These will be T3 and T4. One of them should read zero, the other should read infinity. Repeat this with the other terminal, which will be T2.

Drop a marble in one end of hose and let it roll through. If it doesn't roll through, the hose is clogged and needs to be cleared. Plug hose into the exhaust port of the vacuum, place other end in the in port. Turn vacuum on. This provides a blowing and sucking action which should clear the hose.
Detach hose from power nozzle (PN). Drop a marble into the wand end of PN. If it rolls through, it's clear. If not, there's probably a clog behind the brush where the intake opening is. You may be able to reach this through wand end with needle nose pliers, or either end with a knitting/crochet needle or a bent coat hanger.

If none of these "fixes" provide the answer to the problem, it should be taken to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store for diagnosis. Repairs or checks involving disassembly of the vacuum should always be done by an authorized Aerus Electrolux service technician.

Unit turns off when any type of restiction to air intake. For example when unit is turned if hand is held in front of hose connection unit will turn off


This actually cover several models of Aerus and Electrolux canister vacuums. Models covered include: 2100, Epic 6000, Epic 6500, Aerus Lux 5500, Aerus Lux 7000, and Aerus Lux Legacy. Be aware that some of these models may still be under warranty. Any disassembly of those machines will void the warranty. Use of non-genuine bags also voids the warranty. Use only Home Solutions Aerus/Electrolux bags.

My vacuum shuts off while I am vacuuming. Why does it do this?


Make certain you have the correct bag installed, that the bag does not have a tear in it, and that the hose leading from the floor head, up to the bag, does not have a tear in it.

Also make sure the beater bar belt is not rubbing against anything, and that the beater bar can turn freely only against motor resistance.

The only reason vacuums cut-out during use is because they get too much air (missing or torn bag, bad or missing suction hose, rubbing belt or beater bar rotation restriction). There is a small chance the motor has a problem, but a very small chance.

Part of the hose is torn. Do I have to replace the whole hose or can it be repaired ?


Which hose is torn? The hose underneath or the hose with the extension wand in the handle?

Where I work we can sometimes repair the wand hose, and the little hose undernath is usually a cheap costing replacement.
