Q:

Model number 1162839980 - parts replacement - need help, instructions

A:

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.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.
