Q:

How do I remove the Adapter #4370327 from my vacuum hose so I can replace the hose 11620112001 Kenmore Canister vacuum cleaner

A:

Thank you for your question. Thank you for the model number. I can understand wanting to replace the swivel yourself. 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 swivel.

  • 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.
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.

The Third image gives the basic steps for taking the handle apart. Your model might be slightly different but the steps are the same. Once you have the handle apart insert the hose wires into the connector and properly route them in the holders before reassembly. I hope this is helpful. Please reply below if you need further assistance on installing the hose. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
