Question and Answers

Q:

Replacing the hose 1162481290

A:

Thank you for choosing Searspartsdirect.com and being a valued member. I can certainly assist you in locating the instructions to repair your vacuum hose. 

  • Remove the swivel and hose from the vacuum.
  • At the swivel 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 swivel 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 swivel.
  • 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 swivel assembly.
You can also visit searpartsdirect.com for parts, diagrams, and repair information.

 

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Thank you for your question. Have a great day.

Thank you for submitting your question. I understand your concern and I will be happy to assist you. The images below will assist you with the removal of the hose. You'll need two screw drives to remove the swivel. Please follow these instructions:

 

  • At the swivel 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 swivel 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 swivel.
  • 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 swivel assembly.

If you do not get them correctly, the cuff will be very difficult to get to slide up and lock.

  • You will now see the locking tab on the swivel that hooks onto the corrugated hose, Flex to release and remove the swivel from the hose.
  • Re-assemble in reverse order.

 

I hope this helps. Please reply back to this thread if you require further assistance. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
