Question about Kenmore 25512/ 25513 Progressive Canister Vacuum

Kenmore Canister Vacuum Model 116.23912300 Hose Connection Pipe (KC92PBZTZV06)

The base of my hose connection pipe broke where it snaps into the body of the vacuum. I patched it with tape and it worked for a while, but now the whole vacuum has stopped working. Since the controls are on the hose, I think the problem is with the connector pipe. I have ordered the hose connection pipe (KC92PBZTZV06)...but don't know how to take the hose apart to install the new part.....Can you help me? I'm pretty handy, but there's a trick to this that I don't know.

This is the part.

    Yes, of course I checked the manual. It doesn't cover this repair.

    Please direct my question to a vacuum expert!

  • amiability Nov 01, 2008

    I removed the rubber cuff around the elbow and have been working with a vice and two screwdrivers to pinch the tabs, but have been unable to remove part 9... Is there anyone around who has done this before?

    I appreciate the "keep it simple" sentiment. Believe me, I'd rather not bother, but thrift and the potentially needless disposal of a product that will not breakdown in landfill...compel me to try. I love this vacuum! I haven't found it's equal elsewhere. My new husband came with a cat...and it's hair and tracking litter is getting ahead of us now that this vac is out of commission.

To remove the cover. There are two tabs on the connection pipe that hold the hose connector onto the connection pipe, one on each side located on the section of the connection pipe just next to where it bends. They are visible under the lip of the cover if you gently pry up the cover on each side. You have to use two flat-bladed screwdrivers, one for each tab, and gently pry the cover over these tabs, working simultaneously on both tabs. The cover will then slip off onto the hose. Next, pull off the three wire connectors from the hose wires. After that you should be able to lift the hose wires out of the grooves they are in. There are also two latches on the connection pipe that help hold the hose on. Gently raise these without breaking them as you work off the hose. Remove the old hose from the connection pipe. Slip the new hose onto the connection pipe. The latches will hold the hose onto the connection pipe. Be sure you follow the color code on the wires to match the new hose wires to the connectors on the connection pipe. Push the wires back into the groves on the connection pipe. When everythings is sitting snugly against the connection pipe, you should be able to slip the hose connector cover back on the connection pipe and lock it over the two tabs.

good luck.

feel free for further queries.
thanks

    Thanks, that really did work great for getting the connection pipe off. Now I've been trying for the past half hour to get it back on, very frustrating!! It all goes well until you try to get the two tabs to lock back over the connection pipe flanges. I'm tempted to see if I can buy a pair of snap ring pliers big enough to get the tabs pulled apart simultaneously!

I put a tiny bit of liquid soap on the tabs and connection pipe flanges. I was then able to wiggle the tabs over the flanges.

Hello there,

Can you see the round strip between part 9 and part 10, that is a lock.

That means that you need to rotate parts to unlock it.

I think part 9 must be rotated anti clockwise, try both.

If it really got stuck in all this years and part 9 brakes, change the hose connection as well, (part 9) , it costs only $5.

Let me know.

Check out the solution at this website. It has some blogs that you can read that can help you: http://www.howtomendit.com/answers.php?id=25754
A littlehint of advice: The tabs are under the hard plastic where the hose fits in. They slide over the ribs in the hose. They are hard plastic tabs that press the hose over a hard plastic inner pipe that the hose slides over. Be careful.

I couldn't open the link from IrishDruid.  I have this vac, but haven't work on it(yeah).  You need to seperate part 9 from 10, then clip 11 will secure the hose to 10.    I know you don't want to spend a lot of money on this repair,  but if you get it apart and together and it doesn't work,  would you have preferred to spend the $55 on a new hose  and be done with it?  I hate this approach, replacing the entire thing, but in the real world we only have so much time.

My Kenmore vacuum model #116.27515 will not turn on.


When you took the hose apart were there wires that you had to take apart as well. If those wires were inside the hose then you need a new hose. I think they are about one hundred dollars or go to second hand store and get a used one.if you can.

My new Kenmoore Powermate 116 canister has poor suction. I have no pets and light dust. Its not picking up small particles on the wood floor with the floor attachment. When I put my hand to the suction it...


First of all disassemble the handle and hose as much as possible and examine the inside. Make sure there is not any significant debris lodged in the hose somewhere like a plastic bag or something.

Also check at the top of the pipe right under the handle and power switch for a circular plastic ring that rotates round the metal suction pipe. There is an empty slot in the steel pipe underneath it and in one orientation the hole in uncovered thus reducing the suction for use on delicate items like drapes. Just check that that plastic ring is rotated to the closed (full suction) position.

If you have any questions or require further assistance please comment back here on this page and I will endeavour to help you.

Thank you very much.

It stopped working while I was using it . I tried to plugged in different electric outlets but it still dead. What should I do or look into in order to get it back to normal?? thanks


I would start by taking the wand apart. Be sure vac is unplugged from the wall outlet! You should be left with two pipe pieces, and the beater bar. I would also pull the hose from the canister unit itself. Once all the pieces are pulled apart, check the two or three prong wire connectors on each piece, both the female and male ends. If you have any dielectric grease, use a dab on each electrical connection. Once you reassemble, and still not powering up, wiggle the wand back and forth at the connection near the canister, and after the hose near where the switch is. If the vac cuts on after wiggling it, then you have a loose connection, and will need to tighten the female ends on the electrical connections, by squeezing them together slightly with a pair of pliers. Please rate if this works or does not work. Thanks!

Kenmore progressive canister bad connection from hose to canister


It could be, the female part of the connector is stretched open. You can usually insert something, like a dart, between the sleeve and the holder, to tighten it. If you paid with Pay Pal, see about getting your money back.

Won't work cleaning tools


There is a clog somewhere.

Most likely at any bends or where the hose enters the main body of the vac.

Make sure it's unplugged.
Romove the hose, stretch it out straight and see if you can see through it.

If there arer any hard piped bends try running a pipe cleaner through it to see where the blockage is.

Again, it's likely where the hose base meets the vac housing.

Needle nose pliers com in handy for pulling out string, hair, rig fibers pet fur etc.

Need to know if a replacement part can be purchased and where


Kenmore canisters are privately labeled Panasonic canisters and sometimes panasonic parts will fit them. Any reputable independent dealer should be able to tell you if the part you're looking for is intercharngable with a Panasonic, but he/she will probably need to actually see the unit.

Your other option is to take it to the Sears service dept. They are the only ones who have access to the schematics and "Kenmore" parts. It'll probably be more expensive through them though.

Brush motor doesnt work


The cord at the bottom of the power head neck may be bad. But so could the plug connections in the hose handle, and the cord on the wand. Check both ends of the wand and make sure that the plug ends aren't burnt, if they are replace them and maybe the plug inside the hose handle.

Intermittent Power brush


I would first check where the hose attaches to the canister. There are 3 power leads; if one is bent, this might produce what you describe. You might even try wiggling this connection to see if it affects operation.

The other place you might see a problem is where the hose connects to the handle itself. There are 3 wires that attach from the hose. This is a bit tricky to remove as it's basically a force fit and take some effort to remove.
