Having problems with your Kenmore 25512/ 25513 Progressive Canister Vacuum ?

I have a tear in the top of my hose. Right by the handle is there a way to shorten the hose a few inches at the top to repair the hole?


Answers :

You'd be better off using duct tape on it. Ensure the wiring is intact first, then wrap a couple wraps of electrical tape around the hose, then 2-3 of duct tape. May not be pretty, but safer than cutting the hose and wiring just right to get everything safely connected.

Torn Hose The hose on my Dyson is torn right at the top where the the accessories connect. I was able to take the connection apart and shorten the hose, but I don't know what to use to reattach the hose to the black fitting. It looks like it was glued...not sure what kind. Any ideas?

I have a dyson dc21. All the sudden the hose is hardly suctioning up anything. If I take the canaster off, the top air hole suctions extrememly well, but when I place that canister back on, the suction is not going thru the hose and picking anything up. I have squeezed the hose, I feel no air leaking and do not feel any blockages...what could be wrong. It worked fine the other day and today, it won't pick up a piece of lint!

The Hoover Steamvac Widepath will NOT pick up water. The dispenser with cleaner DOES have water. The TANK that would receive the dirty water is NOT full.

Still will not pick up the water. Any suggestions?

I have a Hoover Deluxe Spin Scrub carpet cleaner that has lost suction. I read the solution by Chris Jones of GoVacuum.com, in which he described the design flaw whereby the tool attachment hose tears at the point of connection with the motor housing.

Should I replace the vacuum hose or simply shorten it if a hole developed near the vacuum canister base? What are the disadvantages of this? For now I am doing duct tape, which is not so elegant as dust and things stick to the tape.

My Windsor Sensor XP12 says the bag is full when it's not. I have removed the hose, brush, and filter and cleaned everything. I can put a bag on without the cover and it works great. However, when I add the bag to the front cover and close the latch the right way, it does not work. I'm thinking that the cover is not seating the bag correctly over the hole, but I can't figure out how to fix it. Any suggestions?

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
