SOURCE: Kenmore vacuum manuals

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.

You can go to the Sears Parts Direct website and type in your Model number. It will return both an exploded view and parts list, with pricing for replacement parts. You can also order from them, and they can tell you stock status as well.

SOURCE: Kenmore Progressive Canister Vacuum -Model 116 22812200.

hello... you might want to try checking the elbow or neck of the power nozzle for blockage. Remove the wand from the head and look through it. Also look through the wands . If there is no blockage, maybe there is a problem with you nozzle. Reattach all the parts and turn on the machine, turn on the power nozzle. Can you hear the other motor start? If so, check to see if the belt is turning. If it is not, and you definitely hear the secondary motor, then you need a belt. If it doesn't make any sound then, with the machine still running, press the button on the upper part of the power nozzle, this should reset your motor. I hope these tips helped ya, let me know, by giving feedback when asked. thank you, Rene (The Vacuum Doctor)

SOURCE: Kenmore Model 116 upright beltless vacuum, agitator will not turn

I had the same issue. The holder for the micro switch is very weak and will open up and allow the switch to come loose, and in my case the was not enough slack in the wire. I unplugged the unit, pressed the pedal and laid it down. Open up the bagger door and remove the bag and filter. Remove 4 screws in the bagger compartment, remove 2 screws by InteliClean indicator lights, remove 4 screws on the outside close to the light. You will be removing the blue upper case. Remove the upper case and look on the right where the lower agitator section pivots. There you will see a micro switch. I ended up lifting and tilting the lower pivot section to the side, repositioning the switch in the holder, and then wedging a full glue stick (not melting but wedging) between the white plastic housing and the switch holder. This added the strength needed to the switch housing to hold it in place. Put it all back together, install the filter and bag. This fixed mine. Good Luck.

Sears kenmore vacuum 116.23401211C hardly used, suddenly no power at all. Cannot find manual, appears to be no fuse or reset on this model? Thx!


There is no fuse there is no reset either. If it doesn't run most likely the vacuum cleaner suction motor is defective or the power switch.

This happened to me too. I was using the wrong bobbins and when I would try to sew, the bobbin would slide up and down. I switched to a Kenmore bobbin and my machine hasn't given me any more trouble.

I need a model number for the kenmore durapower vacuum. Don't have the manual can't find on vacuum


Hi There,

The model number will either be located on the bottom or the back of the machine on a sticker that also contains the serial number. All vacuums have to have this sticker, and serial number information on the machine somewhere. On uprights it's usually on the back of the machine towards the bottom, or on the very bottom of the floor nozzle part. On canister vacuums the model number will either be found on the bottom of the canister, or on the bottom of the power nozzle.

Hope this helped!

Kenmore canister vacuum will not turn on


No, the only effect of not cleaning them would be decreased air flow and consequently . The time between changing filters depends on how much the vacuum cleaner is used. Common failures are damaged cords and a damaged or failed power switch

What you see from the outside is usually a pop up button which sits on top of the actual internal switch remove the lid of the power mate as though you are cleaning the brush roll or changing the belt. Then test the reset internally. Post back to advise .
