Thank you for your question.

I can understand wanting to repair this vacuum hose.

Back when this hose system was put together they glued the end sections on the hose. Repairing of these hoses was something that only the service units did at that time.

You will have a problem getting the sections apart and you will have to use some contact cement to put them back together.

You will have to work a thin flat bladed screw driver in under the hose cuff to get the glue to let go and then pull out the hose end fittings.

I am sorry that this is so difficult but most the vacuums of this era have been replaced with new ones.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Thank you for your question.

I can see your concern for replacing the ends on the old style vacuum hose assembly.

  • This model was built in 1988 and that is why some of the parts are no longer available.

  • The process that was used on removing and installing the ends at that time was that they would have to warm the hose,like in an oven and then press the parts out and the new ones in and then as it cooled it would hold the parts in place.

  • I would suggest that you take the hose assembly in for the component exchange.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired by a Sears technician. Here is a link that will provide the nearest drop-off locations: Sears Home Services .

I hope this information helps.
