Stuck sock i have a sock stuck in the handle right where it curves from the hose...i tried a wire hangar but it doesn't budge...does the handle detach from the hose?


Don't put a hanger in there.... Call your local Aerus Service Center and they can remove it for you . If they tear the hose its their responsibility to replace it. If you tear it you are looking at $119.99tx at least. ... Electrolux Lux 5500 Canister Vacuum

My infinity vac NV29 seems to have an extension wand stuck down in then tube and I am not able to get it out. We rented our winter home and evidently they found some type of extension that did not belong to it. Is there a way to take the handle apart in order to remove it? I am not able to use it with the handle and have to use the one on top of the canister, which is extremly difficult for me since I am disabled. Thank you.

My Dyson DC25 got stuck and wouldn't return to the upright position, I figured out that one side had jumped the track and gotten stuck in the square hole below the track. I did not want to break the plastic to force it back, so I removed the screw on the right side that was holding the kick stand on and removed the kick stand, also a spring thing came out.

My 8 yr old kenmore vacuum works well - however the hose has worn under the handle where there is a hole (resulting in decreased suction power). I'd like instructions on opening the handle and bypassing the worn piece of tubing rather than replacing it for $129. Some of the handle screws remove easily but the last one doesn't loosen easily.

Bisell Healthy home vacuum stopped working. The troubleshooting guide said there could be a problem in the connection at the handle.

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
