Replacing the electical cord on Kenmore Progressive Vacuum

The cord is frayed where it comes out of the vacuum near the handle. It' always been very warm while vacuuming. I can replace it if I knew how to remove the plastic housing where the cord enters the machine. Can you help?

To the right of where the cord comes out of the machine is a large screw. Remove it, and slide the upper handle assembly free.
Then, on the front of the machine, remove the screws located toward the top of the vacuum just inside the bag chamber cover. This will allow the front panel to be removed, giving you access to the cord from the front.

How do I take the handle apart on my Kenmore Progressive vacuum model 116.21614011? I removed the screws but it won't come apart.


There are catches that snap the handle together. It's hard to separate the handle without breaking the catches. Replacement may be required

There should be a pile height pedal on rear of the attachment, just behind the where the wand goes into it, near the handle release pedal. Just keep clicking on it to go through the height settings.

Please rate if this helps :)

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.

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.
