Owners To Operate

Owners To Retract


Open the battery casement.
Locate the battery casement just below the metallic nozzle at the front of the RF handle (the lid of  the battery casement can be identified by a white  outlined battery icon). Insert a small flat head screwdriver into the slot at the base of the battery casement lid and gently pry upward.


Pull out the battery casement.
Once the battery lid has
been raised, using thumb
and index finger, pull the
casement straight up until
the entire battery is visible.


Replace the battery
Replace the battery with a size 23A 12 volt alkaline battery. Using thumb, carefully push the battery  casement back into the handle until it clicks. When you replace the battery, you may have to reprogram the handle.


Reprogram the handle
Depress the recessed button on top of the receiver with a ball point pen.  While the button on the receiver is depressed (A), push the handle switch to the “on” position for 1 second (B).  (Holding the switch on for more than 1 second will erase the program of additional handles.) If the motor still will not turn on the receiver may need to be replaced.


Vacuum power Unit won’t turn on
Check main home breaker panel to ensure the Vacuum Power Unit Breaker is on.  Check Power Unit Reset Button.  Check the PU plug with another electrical component to ensure it is operating properly.  Check that the Power Unit is plugged in. Check all connections between the RF Receiver, RF power supply, and the Power Unit. Press the handle switch to the “on” position and check to see if the LED light on the receiver flashes.  If the LED light does not flash the handle is probably not transmitting.


See the section on changing the battery in the handle. If the LED light flashes but the motor will not turn on, reprogram the handle.

  • Before I saw the Hide A Hose system I wasn’t sure I was going to get a central vacuum system for my new house. I was tired of lugging a bulky hose from inlet to inlet, up and down the steps, and especially shoving it in a closet when I was done, but I knew a portable vacuum was even worse. The Hide A Hose system may be the coolest thing in my new home...
