there is a hose in the ball that moves from wand to floor attachment when the handle is moved from parked to push position.

the hose sometimes hangs, or fails to complete its motion from one vacuum seal to the other.

i am here trying to find out why that is happening, before i have to go behind the filter in the ball

I am also having this issue, except there is a visible hole in the small flip flop hose on my vaccuum. I can repair the hose but how do I get to it?
