Question and Answers

Q:

Why won't the adapter snap in place over the hose of my Sear's progressive vacuum?

A:

The adapter has a slightly raised molded joint on it. Place a small screwdriver at each end of the molded joint and push it underneath the joint 1- 1 1/2 inches. These screwdrivers will release a tab underneath the molded joint and the hose adapter will slide off the hose. You will need to perform this operation to both of the hose adapters. The hose adapters will slide on to the new hose and lock without you having to use the screwdrivers.

You need to line the molded joint up with the tabs on the connector before pushing it onto the adapter.

Q:

Button cover removal

A:

Thank you for your question on the button release for the reel cord.

There are three plastic tabs on the front leading edge of the button.

If you press in and compress plastic button firmly from behind and pull up at the same time you should be able to pop the button off the canister motor canopy. I have found if I have the front of the vacuum cleaner at my waist and reach over and put my fingers on the back side of the button and then do the procedure as described above you should be able to pop the button off. Note! There is return button spring that will pop out when you remove it and it has to go back on the spring post on the button and the recessed location on the plastic mold on the canopy when you pop it back on.

I hope this description will help you.
