Dezeray S Yes this is the correct model & I already have the handle part that needs to be replaced. My question is "How do I remove the hose from the old handle with out damaging the hose"? This info does not show that.

How do you remove Part 6 from Part 8, so I can replace with part 7 which already has a new part 8 on it.

A:

We figured it out ourselves after looking at all of the parts. We just pryied it open with a screwdriver. It broke a part off of the handle, part 8. However since we replacing that piece with Part 7 anyway, no worries. Would not recommend doing this if the handle is still good & you are wanting to replace the hose. There must be a better way to remove it.

Thank you for your question. I can understand wanting to replace the handle yourself.

I see that you have the handle already installed. I will still include the instructions for future use. You will need some basic tools. Two small pocket sized flat bladed screw drivers seem to work the best. I will send you some pictures on how to change the handle.

  • Remove the handle and hose from the vacuum.
  • At the handle end look for the plastic mold lines on both the rubber cuff and the elbow of the swivel.
  • Once you locate those insert your flat bladed screw drivers into the handle groove at the mold seam lines and pry under the cuff and slide the screw driver back under the cuff about 1 1/2 inches to release the locking tab for the cuff on both sides of the handle.
  • Once you have this done you should be able to slide the cuff up the hose and expose the wire harness and how they lay in the holders. Make note of the wire harness routing so you can install them the same way on the new handle assembly.
*If you do not get them correct the cuff will be very difficult to get to slide up and lock.
  • You will now see the locking tab on the handle that hooks onto the corrugated hose, Flex to release and remove the handle from the hose.
  • Re-assemble in reverse order.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.
