wire coathanger, unbent.

twist the end back on itself so it won't puncture the hose.

It's in a bend in the pipe (i think) where the head fits on to it. I thought I'd got it with a bent knife but then it seemed to come back again.

Where exaclty is the blockage? As KAty said, is a wire hanger feasible? If its in the pipe, a decent screwdriver dropped in then shaken through can sometimes dislodge it

Buy a cheap hoover? Borrow one from someone?

Have you tried a bent coathanger or something to get to the blockage? If you can't get to it, I think borrowing or buying something cheap may be your only option.

You can also consider selling the thing before you move.

Stupid thing has a blockage in a place I can't fucking get to to unblock, and if that wasn't bad enough the height adjusting thing keeps slipping so that I can't lock it at full height, meaning I have to hoover on my knees or bent double. angry

There is sawdust EVERYWHERE in the house as it keeps getting tracked around and I've just got fed up with it now. I can't hoover it up properly when the suction is half arsed because of a blockage I can't get to.

Any suggestions? It's not even worth buying a new one because we're emigrating in the summer and the plugs won't be the same.
