Introduction

The hose of the Shark Rocket HV301 may need to be replaced if a hole has been worn into it. This can cause weak suction and for your vacuum to not operate properly. If this is the case, follow this guide to replace the hose on your HV301. This guide may also be used to disconnect your hose to remove a blockage.

Parts

Place the base of the vacuum face down so the roller brush is facing you. Locate the five screws and remove the screws using a Phillips #2 screwdriver. You may want to disconnect the base from the stick of the vacuum to make it easier to move around.

How do you get the rest of it out. There is NO way to just twist the hose out of the chamber. Please be detailed in explaining.

Not simply twist but UNSCREW THE HOSE.

Hey anyone figure this out. Which way do I twist the hose? My problem is the tear in my hose make it hard to grip it and twist. Can the swivel apparatus be removed. If I could get that off I'd just tape the hose. This is a pain in arse

It has glue on the end which keeps it secure. Pull it apart, it will come out as the wire sperates and then you can remove glue before replacing.

I found a hose that is a perfect fit. EVERBILT 6 ft Bilge and Pump Discharge Hose. 1-1/8 inch ID. Got it at Home Depot.

Oh, why do you recommend removing the screw to the right of the wheel? Seems unnecessary. And the beginning it is definitely not necessary to remove those little wheels. Strange you even mentioned them as completely unrelated
