Question about Euro-Pro Vacuums
Hi! Sometimes really hard to remember which of these models is which, so please forgive me if this is not a complete solution. I'm pretty sure you will find there are two filters. The first is a foam filter, and is located at the bottom of the bag compartment. It pulls out to the front, and is washable (of course it must be completely dry before re-use). The second (and here I'm on less secure ground) is a HEPA filter, and is located behind a removable panel on the front of the bag compartment door. The HEPA filter is not washable, but rarely if ever needs to be changed unless the machine has been used for vacuuming a lot of extremely fine dust. I hope this helps, and I value your feedback. Please remember to rate my response. Good luck!

Yes, you do... only the 'motor protection filter' in the bag compartment is meant to be user cleaned.
Here's a manual, with a parts diagram near the end, if it's of use.
Please rate if this helps :)

Needed bags for this vacuum and FINALLY found them at http://www.totalvac.com/parts/X10-3005.html?zmam=6843742&zmas=1&zmac=6&zmap=X10-3005. Ten bags and two filters for $10.95 plus shipping. Hope this does it for you and anyone needing bags for this vacuum.

There are two tabs on the bottom that release the plate and allow the plate to be snapped in and out. They are easy to spot. But, there are also screw holes in some models and there may be screws in them. You might have to deal with both. The screws are unecessary and you can leave them out when you put the plate back on.

I believe that this is probably a Kenmore Canister vacuum cleaner, but I can't be positive. The model number 116 is just the first part, and all Sears vacuum cleaners start with model 116. There is a . after the 116 that will identify the vacuum. If you'd like me to be more model specific, or if this is an upright vacuum, please just request a clarification and I can take pictures even for you.
If this is a canister style vacuum, then you'll need to remove the foot pedal that rewinds the cord reel. There are 2 or 3 (depending on which model you have) hidden screws underneath of this pedal. You may simply pry off the pedal using a flat head screw driver. Also when you have the bag door open, you may just pull forward while it's open, and this will remove the bag door housing. There should be two screws in the front of the motor housing that need to be removed as well.
My guess from the age of the vacuum that's probably the motor that's gone. If this is the case, you probably can still get a motor if you'd like to just replace the motor inside, rather then buying a new vacuum. Typical Sears Kenmore canister motors sell for 79-120 dollars.
Again, I'd be happy to try and help you further, I will just need the entire model number after the 116. to know which vacuum you have.
