Having problems with your Electrolux Lux 5500 Canister Vacuum ?

How do you repair the hose if it is flattened in the mid way ?

Answers :

Due largely to the electrical wiring, vacuum hoses are very difficulty to repair. If the hose is flattened/damaged, the wiring may have been damaged and construes a shock hazard at the least. Trying to repair the hose increases the possibility of wiring damage.
\015\012However, you can try getting a lenth of PVC or similar pipe that is a slightly smaller diameter than the hose. Insert one end into the canister end of hose and gently push it to the flattened area. Slowly and gently use it to work the flattened area out.
\015\012I don't know if this will work, but it's worth a try. If it doesn't, a new hose is needed.

ShopVac pump The waterhose connection is up high. The only way to get the water up to the level of the hose is to continually hold down the on button due to the automatic shut off after it fills to a certain level. On the bottom of the filter there is a hole. I am thinking there should be a small hose of some sort to put into that hole that would then lead up to the level of the water hose. Concept makes sense to me. But in the meantime, good old duct tape seems to have done the trick. Not exact
