Fit rounded side into the top red part first. The flat side is toward the bottom black part. Then push the bottom on until it snaps in place on each side.

I bought a 1 gallon shop vac at an estate sale. They said it was new. It isn't. The model # is 2E200. The front says shop.vac 1X1. I have no directions can't open it or put the hose in it.


You have two options: return it to seller or put the information about the model number and name in your search spot and Google for manual.

Riccar 8995 no suction


I think you mean it's an 8955, Riccar has not had a 8995 model. If there is no suction in the hose it has to have something clogging it. Open the little round opening on the back of the vacuum where the hose attaches to see if you have suction there.

The hose split. I ordered a replacement but can't figure out how to remove or loosen the back panel to get the old hose out and the new one in.


Hello,

I'm sorry, I thought I had one of these models in stock here so I could take it out of the box and photograph this repair for you. Unfortunately I didn't have the exact same model, however I do have a similar model to yours in stock, which I used to try and demonstrate how to get the new hose in.

This was a terrible design by Eureka BTW. The new model I photographed today had this problem fixed, and they bottom hose holder no longer is screwed in.

If you look at the very bottom on the back of your vacuum cleaner, You'll see where this plastic cover piece goes over top of the hose. You need to remove one screw, the one all the way at the bottom in order to install the new hose properly. You'll need to use a T20 Star bit Screw driver, which is kind of rare, and you may need to go out and buy one, as most people don't have these types of screw drivers.

Here's the picture of the newer model I opened up. If you look where my finger is pointing, you should see the screw:

Once you've removed this screw, simply pull the flap that goes over top of the hose out, just far enough so you can slide the new hose behind it.

Once you've pulled the hose about half way through, you can then screw in the screw, and you attach the hose proper way on both ends.

Hopefully this helped you. If you have still have questions on how to fix this, please just use the comment field at the bottom of the page. I'm always more then happy to help, and I'll try and wait until I get your particular model in stock so I can take better pictures of the repair. If you found this solution helpful, please be so kind and rate the repair helpful by, or by leaving feedback for me, this is really appreciated by the FixYa community.

Thanks so much,

I just bought a Miele s558 Silver Moon, seems like it's from 2000 or so. If it's in good condition, can I expect this machine to last another ten years? Or would it have been better to buy a lower end...


Greetings from GoVacuum,

Ahh, the Miele Silver Moon model S558i. This is great model that I know a lot about because I actually own this exact model. I have had my Silver Moon now for going on 10 years, with almost no problems. The motors in the Silver Moons are excellent, and should last 20 or 25 years without problems. This particular model did have one major problem however. This is the first model that Miele put the suction controls in the handle of the hose of the vacuum, allowing the user to easily adjust the suction setting with fingertip controls. The problem with these models is that static electricity (usually happens when vacuum carpeting) causes the hose to shut down the power to off. You can be in the middle of vacuuming, and all of a sudden the vacuum will turn off. You can easily turn back on the vacuum with the push of a button, but it's irratating for sure.

Miele did come up with a solution for this problem with a newly redesigned hose, part number SES125-3. Since this new design has come out I haven't had a single issue with my hose. The way you can tell if you have the old or new hose is by the numbers (or lack of ) on the different suction levels. If your hose goes up to 1100 Watts, then this is the older style hose. If you're hose simply has a minimum to high setting with no numbers at all on the hose, then this is the redesigned 125-3 hose.

If you have the older style hose, I would get the dealer that sold you the vacuum to exchange the old hose for the new hose, you definitely don't want to have to buy that new hose ($150+). If you have the new hose, then I would say stick with the Silver Moon over the newer Miele models, in my opinion the Silver Moon is one of the most durable models that Miele has ever made.

The only other thing you need to be careful of is the cord reel. When you are retracting the cord reel, it's best to kind of guide the cord back in, and take it slow rather then just stepping on the cord rewind pedal. The cord reel can sometimes be touchy, especially if you are rough with it. If you're careful with it, you should never have any problem with the vacuum cleaner as long as you change the filters on a regular basis as well as the bags.

I hope this helps, if you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me at chris (dot) jones (at) govacuum (dot) com.

Thank you,

Bissell Rug Cleaner Model 1695


I think you have the same problem as me, If you lay the handle down and remove the tank you'll see a vacuum hose that runs from about the middle of the machine back towards and up into the handle. that hose probably has a hole in it. which is my problem also I can't get at the part of the hose that runs into the handle. I hope I could at least help you figure out what the problem was.
