Question about Kenmore 23613 Progressive PowerMate Bagged Canister Vacuum

1 Answer

Replacing On-Off Switch

I actually have a model 23612001 Kenmore Progressive Vacuum but do not see it listed. It appears that it is of the same general design as this one. I need to take the handle apart to get at the power switch. I've removed the three screws that hold the half's of the handled together, but there must be more to do. I have not forced it for fear of cracking the plastic. Is there a trick to getting at the switch?

    I, too, suspect that the On-Off switch is the source of my trouble (vacuum suction works OK, belt drive inoperable on the Power Mate and the Power Mate JR). I was able to remove the cover by first removing three screws, then working the cover back and forth, while GENTLY applying upward pressure on the cover. Be patient - it will come off. As for the switch, I'm still trying to locate the part and haven't replaced it as yet, so I can't say if that is the actual fix.

Agitator doesnt turn


There is actually a reset button on the agitator, I would try pushing this switch first to see if this fixes it. The button is located on one of the sides of the agitator housing, I'm not sure if it's the left or the right side, or on the top of it.

Look on the sides of the part of the vacuum that is on the floor and see if you can see a small red pole on either side. If you can't find it here, look on the top of the part of the vacuum that touches the floor for a brush overload reset switch.

Try pushing that poll whenever you find it. This switch is a protection mechanism that will shut the brushes down to protect them if something gets vacuum up inside of the brush, it will automatically shut itself off to prevent any damage.

Simply push this overload switch down, and this should hopefully fix your problem.

If this didn't, please let me know and I can walk you through some more advanced troubleshooting.

If this was helpful, please be so kind and rate my repair, or leave feedback.

Thank you!

Replacing Power Cord Kenmore Progressive Upright


That actually sounds correct, if it's the model I'm thinking of. As long as you're talking about connecting to the wires that are held in by the wire nuts you should be good to go.

Go to this website and enter your complete model number in the search field in the upper right corner of the page. You should be able to view a parts diagram that will provide some clues about how to disassemble the handle.

I tried what reddevil6 suggested and was not able to get Sears to produce a manual. I would prefer an online manual but at this point I'm desperate enough to try anything.
