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

No parts required.

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.

Pull on the dark gray end of the hose that attaches to the roller brush chamber to remove the hose from the base. This may require some force. Twist the hose out of the chamber that attaches the stick to the base.

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.

Where can I order the hose? What's the part number?

Where do we buy the those? This must be a throw away sweeper. Had a shark at work and the hose broke in the same way as my rocket. Need a reinforced hose in this location

I was able to get the cracked hose out, but it destroyed it. Where can I buy the replacement tube?

Has anyone found a replacement hose?

lmonta60 - Reply

I have not found replacement, but since my hose was not totally destroyed (hanging together by a smidgen) I bought FLEX TAPE (as seen on TV that is nuclear sticky) and held together & taped. Be careful, it is not repositionable & you have 1 chance to stick it.

Great instructions, now where do I get the replacement hose. I can't seem to find one anywhere, please tell be where to look

Rob the hose from the hard floor attachment, you probably do not use it as at low speed the brush head is awesome on hard floors.

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.

How did you get the hose from Home Depot to work? I’d like to try it, and I was hoping you would give some advice.

Joey Griffin -

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

Great news. I robbed new hose from the hard floor attachment that I never use ! Love this vacuum and the tutorial was very helpful.

Suzannne Scheans - Reply

I just took everything apart from main head and hard wood floor head to replace hose like u fucken said and the hose is a different size (to big) and won’t fit. thanks for nothing.

Jessica Brown - Reply

I am not able to find this part “Hoze" for my Shark Rocket HV300.

I’ve purchased 2 shark rockets. The 1st Hv 301-40 the 2nd Hv325. After about a year use of each the hose is torn. I called Shark for replacement hoses and was told I need to purchase entire new vacuum head. I think this is ridiculous. All because of a hose? Anyways. The reason I purchased 2nd vacuum was due to torn hose on the original shark vacuum head. I love my shark rockets but I am tired of replacing vacuum yrly all because of a hose. I’m beginning to believe Shark isn’t as good as I believe it to be

I tried the hose from Home Depot (EVERBILT 6 ft Bilge and Pump Discharge Hose. 1-1/8 inch ) last night and it works. The hose costs about $9. I just cut out a section of it and then I was able to get it the thread into the vacuum, just like the original. It doesn’t seem as sturdy as the original hose, but since you get 6 feet of it, there is plenty to replace it again in the future.

I took my old hose from my Shark Rocket HV300 to Home Depot, & the bilge hose is smaller in diameter. But Home Depot also sells FLEX TAPE as seen on TV.

Let's hope the stuff works as advertised!

The hose from the hard floor attachment is wider than the vacuum hose. I managed to get it pretty tight but ROUGH! I think the suction is compromised

lmonta60 - Reply

Oops! Let me try again…

Instructions are pretty much the same for the Shark Rocket bare floor attachment:

Dust-Away Hard Floor Attachment (HVDA300),

except you don't have any electrical wires & stuff. Unscrew from underneath, unscrew the hose - but I swear it must have been made down under where everything spins in the opposite direction - I believe it was "Righty Loosey, Lefty Tighty" Go figure.

The bilge pump hose diameter was smaller (but I could have probably MacGyvered it). Instead - I resorted to super nuclear black Flex Tape (as seen on TV) from Home Depot. You will need 2 pairs of hands to tape - one to hold the hose together, & one to carefully tape (it is NOT repositionable ; you get one chance).

Lets hope the tape works as advertised!
