How to Fix a Vacuum Hose (Numatic)

Even the smallest of holes in your vacuum cleaner hose will cause a loss of suction. Replacing a damaged hose couldn't be easier and you should see an immediate improvement in your vacuum cleaner's performance.

If you have damage to the machine end or the tool end of your hose, or if you have a split in the hose itself very near to one of the ends then you can replace these ends without having to replace the whole hose itself.

Both machine ends are available as kits separately and Mat will show you how to replace both.

This video shows an example on how to remove or replace the part on a typical machine, some models may be different but the procedure should be similar.

  What You Will Need:

  Step 1 - Safety Advice

Safety First! Please ensure that you have disconnected the appliance from the mains before starting any repair.

  Step 2 - Cutting Hose to Size

So let’s start with the tool end of the hose. Make sure the hose is nice and stable on your worktop to remove the bent end.

The hose used in our video has a little cut, so using a knife carefully we are going to cut along the same area and remove this end of the hose.

Making sure to cut as squarely as possible so that the kit can go on nice and flush.

  Step 3 - Fitting New Tool End Kit

With the hose prepared we can now attach the new tool end kit.

First the black collar goes over the hose making sure that the pips are up towards the newly cut end. Grab your plastic white boss and thread that onto the end of the hose as tightly as possible until it can't be threaded anymore.

Now we can grab your new tool end. Put that over the boss as far as possible. And then it's simply a case of fitting these pips into position.

It's a good idea to get the lugs in one by one, giving you flexibility to move the hose around into its place.

  Step 4 - Replacing Machine End Hose

Great work so far…we can do the same with the machine end of the hose.

eSpares Top Tip: with the machine end, instead of removing the machine end from the vacuum cleaner simply leave it in place. Simply grab your knife make an incision as high up the hose as possible and then turn the hose to cut it.

So, same process as before, black collar on first with the pips facing out and then thread your plastic boss into position again as far down as it'll go.

Finally, slip your machine end over and make sure the lugs go in the correct way and then attach to your vacuum cleaner.

There you go! You’ve repaired your Numatic vacuum cleaner hose, without having to replace the complete hose. We did say it was a simple fix that you can fix yourself.
