Thank you for your question.

I can understand wanting to know how to replace this part.

  • On the sides of the top of the upper wand there is two tabs that holds the cover for the release button.

  • Use a small flat bladed screwdriver to pry up the cover to release from the back plasitic sleeve.

  • Once you have that cover and button removed, use the slide button release that extends and retracks the wand and set to about the mid-setting.

  • Locate the two tabs,one on each side of the slide release and use a flat bladed screwdriver in the tab slot and pry out the locking tabs.

  • Once you have the tabs removed you can tap the back plastic cover down about a half inch to release its location from the top cover.

  • You can then remove the cover and expose the ribbon strip that plugs into the part you are replacing.

I wll send some pictures that I hope will help with the location of the locking tabs.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Thank you for the update. The 4370623 lower wand comes as a complete assembly, and plugs into the upper wand and slides into the power mate swivel tube. The hose 4370588 however is a different matter. I will give you instructions and pictures on how to change both ends of the replacement hose. I had to e-mail you the instructions for changing the hose swivel end. The handle end of the hose will need to have the screws removed from the handle and it snaps together in two halves. Make sure when you take it apart that you see how the switch fits into the two handle pieces to make you put it back the same way or you will not be able to re-assemble it correctly. I hope this will help. Sam A.

Q:

install vacuum parts

A:

That's great to hear that you are wanting to change a few parts on your own on the vacuum. Luckily i was able to find some general information on both parts. The first link speaks upon the part # 4370588 and the second link is the hose, on how to take off the part.

Thank you for your question.

I can understand wanting to repair the vacuum hose.

116.2 vacuum cleaner hose elbow swivel replacement.

To replace this connection pipe you will need to have some basic tools.

  • Two small pocket type flat blade screwdrivers seam to work the best for this repair.

  • Locate on the hose elbow connection the molded seam line in the cuff and on the elbow connection.

  • Place the flat blade screwdriver in the gap between the elbow and the hose cuff and work up under the cuff along the seam line up the hose in under the cuff for about 1 inch or until you release the locking tab.

  • Do this on both sides of the cuff, so both sides are released at the same time.

  • Once the tabs are released, slide the cuff up the hose and out of the way.

  • This will expose the wiring harness on the connection pipe. NOTE: the location of the wires and how they fit onto and around the connection pipe so you can install them back exactly as they are or the cuff with not lock back onto the connection pipe.

  • Remove the push in connectors on the wire harness and then locate locking tab on the connector pipe and release it from the spiral of the hose and remove the connection pipe from the hose.

  • Install the new connector and re-connect all the wires and slide the cuff back up the connector. This will take a little working back and forth of the cuff to get it to lock onto the new pipe.

I hope this will help.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Thank you for the update. Sorry that I did not send you the instructions for the other end. There are 3 t0 5 screws that holds the clam shell type handle together. There should be one screw on the back area to release the top cap where the switch is. Then remove the side screws and with a small flat screwdriver pry the to halves apart. Make note of the location of how the switch is held between the two halves of the handle to make sure you get it back together correctly. Also notice the location of the wires from the hose and how they are positioned. The model in the picture is not exactly like your but it shows the two halves of the handle apart. I hope this will help. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
