Hello Lamar. I added an image below and a good link to that previous answer that should help you remove that pedal and access the on/off switch. Be sure that the vacuum cleaner is unplugged when accessing internal components. If you need more help, let us know.

Q:

Vacuum Hose Removal from End Pieces

A:

Thank you for your question.

I can understand you wanting to fix your vacuum hose yourself. This is not hard if you know what to do.

• First you will need two small pocket type flat blade screwdrivers.

• Next locate on the hose the molded seam line in the rubber sleeve on the hose cuff.

• As shown in the picture below, find the gap in the cuff where it meets the elbow and insert and slide the screwdrivers in about a 1 inch along the seam line on both sides to release the tabs that hold the cuff on.

• Once released use both you hands to pull the cuff down the hose off of the elbow connection.

• You will then see the wires that come from the hose connecting into the elbow.

• Release the wires from there connection sleeves and release the plastic tab the hold the elbow to the hose.

• Remove the elbow and cuff from the old hose.

• Slide the cuff onto the new hose and install the elbow onto the new hose until it locks into position.

• Re-connect the wires from the new hose to the connectors on the elbow.(make sure you have them into there respective locations)

• Pull the cuff up the hose until it latches onto the tabs.

• Do the same for the other end of the hose.

I have sent some pictures below to help.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Q:

My power cord is jammed inside the cannister of my Kenmore cannister vacuum model 11626212690.

A:

Thank you for your question on the reel cord being stuck in the canister base.

You will need to remove the motor canopy to release reel power cord. The cord is jammed against the top of the motor canopy.

To gain access to the reel cord you will need to open the tool and dust box cover and flex them up and over backwards to snap them out of the canister base.

Once you have these two covers removed it will expose the two Phillips head screws on the upper corners of the motor canopy. Then you will need to remove the step recoil button on the top back of the canister to gain access to the other screws for the motor canopy.

Pointing the vacuum hose end towards you place your fingers of both hands on the back side of the release button and pull towards you and up to release the button and the button return spring. This will require some force to get the button to release from the canister top.

Once you have it removed, you will see the other screws you will need to remove to lift up and off the motor canopy.

Once you have the motor canopy off the canister base it will expose the reel cord and you can lift it out if you need to release the backlash.

In cases this backlash is caused by the releasing of the cord that is fully extended and allowed to speed back into the canister and cause a backlash of the power cord.

If you make an attempt to return the cord a little slower, the backlash will not happen.

I hope this will help.

Sam A.
