Having problems with your Eureka Altima Upright Vacuum Model 2996AVS Vacuum ?

Hose is clogged, can't remove hose.

\015 My wife was vacuuming the needles from our Christmas tree and noticed that the cup was not filling up with anything. The hose immediately at the base of the vacuum is completely clogged with needles. Anyway, I can not for the life of me get this hose off to clear it of needles and I've lost my manual. Please, help.\015\012\015\012Tanks,\015\012Nate\015

Hello,i have a 2996AVS,i have worked on many vacuums like this,if you look down on the top cover where the wheel height knob is,on the far left & far right side's there is a chrome phillips head screw on each side,remove these two screws,the top cover will lift off,just pull up on the back part of the cover and it will lift off,then you can see where the hose attaches,there is a small slot where the hose clips in,use a small flat head screwdriver or pocket knife and insert it in the slot,there is a raised lip on the hose you can see, slide the driver in the slot right on top of this raised lip and slide the small screw driver in until it is under the slot,this will pry up the slot and you can pull out the hose from there,on the rear of vacuum there is a clear plastic attaching cup that locks the hose to the unit,just squeeze the two clips together and pull and this section will come off,then you can clean out end to end of hose,just line them up and push them back in when your done,then reinstall top cover and tighten screws,also check your belt why you have the cover off,it it ffeel's loose or hardened,or slick and shiny on inside of belt,this will cause thr roller brush to slow down or stop ,hope this helps you. r.man
