I am still searching for instructions. Your unit is over 5-10 years old so there are no instructions available. Thank you.

Thank you, but I have that diagram. I ordered the hose but no directions came with it. I know I need the two ends, but before I order them I want to know is they will come with instructions as to how to attach them to the hose. I don't know if I need a special tool or something like that.

Thank you for your question.

I can understand wanting to replace the hose yourself instead of having to pay to have a technician to it.

This is not as hard as it first looks and I am sure with a little information you can do this repair.

I have e-mailed you the instructions for this repair process and also have added a couple of picture images below for you to look at.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

I used to repair Kenmore vacuums and this is a common problem. If the hose has a hard cuff, you will have to put it in a vise and compress it slightly and pry the hose off. If the cuff is soft, I always heated it up with a hair dryer to make it plyable, then it will come right off, but be careful not to scorch it.

Thank you Sam & Rita I will try this tomorrow. As far as paying a tech to do the repair. I asked about a hose replacement at a Sears store and the saleman told me that I should order it because they didn't do repairs. I called a couple of Vaccum repair shops and they either won't do the repair or the one that would was over 70 miles from my home. I'm kinda stuck with my DYI.

Q:

Older Canister Vacuum problems with suction.

A:

From the description you give the problem is most likely with the power mate unit. It may have a broken belt/roller or be clogged.

You say the attachments work so the canister and suction seem to be okay.

You don't include much detail about if the power mate is running or if the light works. There is usually a reset button if the motor is not running.

Try turning the roller by hand. The roller bearing may be bad or the belt might be broken. The model number you submitted is for the canister. The power mater would have a separate model number.

The image below shows how to access the roller and belt on most Kenmore vacuums. Remember to unplug the unit first.

I hope this information is helpful to you but submit another question with any additional details for further assistance.
