Clogged hose A makeup brush (about 3.5 inches long) was sucked up through the vacuum hose. It won't come back through the same way it came in because the bristles in the brush are expanded. We can see the brush on the side of the hose that connects to the canister but can't get it around the bend of the 360 part of the hose... is there any way to take the hose apart more?

Wondering if the head is plugged up because it makes a sound like air is escaping somewhere. I've replaced the original cloth bag with a comparable "O" paper bag from Sears. I tried to see if there was a clog in the hose by placing a broom handle in the hose to see if something would loosen. I also cleaned the filter and the air filter. If the head is plugged, how can I fix it? We can't get the vacuum apart. Thanks.
