I'm trying to use the reverse flow hole on my Miele s712 to blow up an air mattres. None of my fitting appear to fit so I can use the hose. Is there something I'm missing? Is there a trick of the trade? Or am i missing some gear. It's new, out of the box but I just can't get the hose onto the reverse flow.

No suction Hello - any help with this would be much appreciated! I just changed the bag and filters. The machine runs, seems normal, but there is no suction. There is no blockage of the hose, as indicated by the fact that that little viewer window above where the hose connects to the unit is not showing the red portion that it shows when there is something blocking the hose (god, this is hard to describe!). If I disconnect the hose and put my hand over the hole, I feel some suction. But
Well, it actually sounds like there is a blockage. Try removing your hose and dropping something through it, like a quqrter. If it comes through, no clog. If it is clogged, I believe that machine has a blower on the upper part of the cleaner (mayb ... Miele S514 Solaris Electro Plus Vacuum
Kenmoore Intellivac w direct drive suddenly started making internal sound like something was stuck. Hose is clear, and sound is made when hose is detached from main unit. Vacuum sounds find at lower pressure, only makes sound with bag door closed and/or placing my hand over the end of hose.
Shut off the vac and open container and remove the bag. Try dropping a coin into the hose, then raise up to see if it falls thru to the bag area. If it does check the throat of the vac where the dirt is sucked upward to dump into the bag itself. ... Kenmore 35912 / 35913 Progressive Upright Vacuum

DC07 DYSON REPLACEMENT HOSE. HOW DO YOU REMOVE IT FROM THE HANDLE. I have a kenmore whispertone 8540 canister vaccum. The electrical wires (3) to power the beater are embedded in the hose, in a spiral fashion. The yokes that hold the hose on both ends (and attach to the beater on one end and the unit on the other) have no screws or pressure latches; i don't want to use brute force as i may damage the attachment device inside the yoke. If someone can tell me the trick to get these yokes off each

Doesn't work Our home was built and finished in August 07. The central vac doesn't work. There is supposed to be a slot that opens in the kitchen where you sweep the dust and it sucks it up. Also, the mounted unit on the garage wall has a hose that goes up into the house but there is a hole open at the bottom of the unit. Where can I get someone to help us? Or, is there an installation manual I can download to see if the builder did it properly. He stole our solar heater for our pool and s

There is something stuck in the handle of my Miele vacuum. I unscrewed all the screws hoping that I could remove the hard plastic handle from the hose. I was only able to flip up a piece of plastic where the switch is. Should I pull harder to pry the plastic apart? I was afraid I'd break something. Thank You, Chrissy

Our Dyson sucked something up last week (not sure WHAT) and now the telescoping hose won't ****. Well, it sucks but just BARELY . I took the hose apart and can't see anything, but it makes a weird noise now when you stand the unit up and are not actually vacuuming with it. Help!
Well if the hose is completly clear the blockage is either before that or after that the brush roller should come out to clean the tube as you know also comes out make sure all are clear right up to the collector ... Dyson DC14 All floors Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

I need to remove the top cover from a Wertheim w4030, I have removed all screws that I can get at. I have notice a further 3 in places that is not possible to access. It looks as though the two buttons on the top if removed will provide the solution but I don't want to break anything by forcing something that is not supposed to be done. Can you help?
I need to find a way to replace the attachment hose on this unit. the tube to spray the detergent snakes into the base next to the wheel and i'm unsure of how to take it apart without breaking it. is there a simple way to remove the wheel? do i need to do something special to replace that tube?

I have an Easy-Flo central vac unit. The handle on the electric hose has a switch on the handle. With the switch on ''O'' in the center, it's off. On the left, is the ''I'' position. The vacuum runs but the power brush doesn't. On the right is the ''II'' position. The switch won't flip that way. It feels stuck. It feels as if there is something underneath of it that won't let it push that direction. I have the switch out of the handle, but I can't seem to get the actual black casing around the

Ryno Turbo Vac 180 won't pick up lint from carpet. I have cleaned out all the hoses and filters. Is there something I have missed?
Automatic pump I understand the concept. What is wierd is the place to hook up the waterhose is up high and on the outside of the Shopvac itself. Is there another spot to actually hook up the hose inside the shopvac? I can't locate my manual. I do see a hole in the bottom of the filter but there is not an actual place to screw something in there? Im I just being stupid?
Well that does sound strange but in theory if you hook up the water hose even up high when the water fills the reservoir it should run out while your vacuuming give it a shot and when you wet vac yo ... Shop Vac 584-06-00 Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum

My FIL purchased an Electrolux bagless canister vacuum model EL5 76501 last year. When I tried to use it today, the hose keeps pulling out of the power brush whenever I pull it towards me. it doesn't seem like anything has broken off. The only thing I noticed was that the rubber ring washer seems to be flattened. Could it be something that simple or do you think some part has fallen off and gone missing? Regards, Craig Somersett
