Replacing the unit is quite easy, offers more power & better filtration, and one of our dealers can help.

Our Electric Hose (Option 1) is the latest and greatest hose technology for your older brush nozzle. The hose is lightweight and pliable; a dream to use. Requires two adaptors to fit it into the nozzle. The first adaptor is a new top wand (#406SU), which replaces your current top wand. The second adapter is a 6-inch cord to mate the nozzle's cord to the new hose and wand (#480AC). When your power nozzle stops working you can buy a newer style nozzle which mates with the new hose. If you have proprietary Kenmore inlet valves then you will need a metal stub tube hose adapter (#302-1.25ST) to allow the new hose to fit in your valves. We also sell the electric hose (Option 1) with this wall end adapter included. If you have standard inlet valves, then the hose will fit directly into your valves.

We have three choices: Basic Hose, Stretch Hose, and the Low Voltage Hose. We explain the main features of each hose, and why any of them may be the right hose for you. Next, we discuss some of the extension wands we have for each of the hoses. Finally we introduce you to the Hose Sock; a handy accessory for your hose to protect your baseboards and furniture legs.
The hoses are crushproof, lightweight, and offer 27% more suction. There are several types of kits. The electric attachment kits are best if you have carpet and/or pet hair. They dig down deep in your carpet to make it super clean. The electric kits are also the quietest available on the market today. (Electric Kits for Kenmore) The air driven kits are excellent for minimal carpet. They are louder than electric kits, and slightly less efficient (in our opinion). (TurboCat, TurboCat Zoom). Another type of kit we have is a Quick Clean Kit. This kit comes with a stretch hose that is 6ft long when relaxed, but stretches to as long as 28ft. Hose Socks are also available. This handy accessory item goes over any hose (except the Stretch Hose) and protects your baseboards and furniture legs. It is important to determine which type of inlet valves you have before purchasing a new kit. You may either have proprietary valves or industry standard valves. If you have proprietary inlet valves, then you will need to purchase the metal stub tube; however, if you have standard industry inlet valves, then the new kit will fit directly into your inlets.
MD has three different types of hose hangers: a nylon plastic hose hanger, a hose tote that hangs on a hook, and a wire hose hanger. Our tool caddy can be used for storing your accessories. We also have a wand wall clamp. The clamp screws onto the wall and hangs your wands and even your power nozzle. A real space saver! This gets the power brush and/or accessories up off the floor and onto the wall, and only needs a few inches of wall space depth.
The two main types of inlet valves are the Proprietary Inlet Valves, and the more Industry Standard Basic Valves. Though the proprietary inlet valves are not sold anymore, we do have replacement inlets available (though it involves a lot of work to replace - see the next video). However, if you have any of the standard inlet valves, you can replace them with any of our basic inlet valves.
If you have industry standard inlets, then you can replace them with any of our Basic Valves. However, if you have Kenmore proprietary valves, it is a big project to try and replace them. We will show you how to replace the proprietary inlets and list what parts are needed. Use regular PVC cement/glue for the connections but the faceplate is only screwed on. Here are the parts you need.
