Vacuum Cleaners/Cubby Vac parts


I have a Cubby Vac with two problems.  The first and major is that the feed and retract plastic gear is eaten up.  I'm looking for a replacement gear, or new gear assembly.  Right now I have to try and force the hose back into the unit as well as pull the hose out - not good fhr the hose.

Second problem is the main handle assembly has become loose and I've had to tape the hose and handle together.  


Hello John. Thank you for your question. Cubby Vac is not widely distributed on the West Coast so I have little familiarity with the brand. The best advice I can give you is the same as to the previous Cubby Vac owners: Visit the MD Manufacturing website (I think it is This comprehensive site should answer  any questions you have.  Or give them a call for personalized assistance.
 I hope this helps a little in your search.  Thanks again!

Please ask me any questions regarding the efficiency, durability, and value of 99.5% of today's vacuum cleaners, residential and commercial. I am able to help, also, with your residential carpet cleaners and vapor steamers. I cannot answer questions such as "how much should I pay for my vac?" "how often should I change the bag, belt, filter?" or "how often should I vacuum?" , etc. I also will not advise you how to use equipment for other than its original application; including any disassembly or modification not approved by the unit's manufacturer.


I am the owner of a well-established (sixty-plus years), family-owned & operated vacuum retail and repair business. We are a full service/warranty center for 99.5% of vacuums manufactured. I, personally, have extensive hands-on experience with today's most popular vacuum cleaners, I have not only used the vacs in my own home, I have repaired them. I have been in the floor care industry for over 25 years.

I have attended certification seminars with the industry's trade association. My education, however, has been mostly hands-on, carrying on a sixty year old tradition in a brick and mortar 'mom & pop' location.
