To install a new swivel assembly, you will need 2 small, flat tip screw drivers. Unplug the vacuum. Push the screw drivers in between the hose and the collar where you see the seams in the plastic collar on the end where the hose enters the collar. This will release tabs that hold the collar to the swivel. Pry and pull the collar back over the hose and then pull the small screwdrivers out of the collar. Slide the collar back along the hose. Unplug the wiring connections from the hose. Pull the hose wires up and out of the holder on the swivel assembly. Lift the tabs on the side of the hose and pull it off of the swivel. Push the new swivel onto the hose. Align the hose wires and secure them in the holder. Plug the wires from the swivel into the hose wires (blue to blue, white to white). Secure the swivel wires into the wire holder on the swivel assembly. Push the collar back up the hose and onto the swivel with the plastic seams aligned with the tabs on each side of the hose. Snap the collar securely into place.

My husband accidentally dislodged the belt on my kenmore canister vac. how can we disassemble the head to put the belt back on?


There should be 4-5 screws on the bottom of the brush assembly, remove them and you will see the brush and belt, remove each end of the brush assembly they should lift up and out of the housing,and either replace or reailine the belt on the motor side of the housing.

I have to replace the power head swivel. I have the part. I can't quite figure out how to swap out the broken with new.


Hello,

I just shot a short video explaining how to replace your swivel neck. I hope this was helpful to you.


Also, here's another repair I wrote showing how to replace the belt, which will help you "crack" the two housings apart on the Kenmore Canisters.

Hello, I have a Kenmore Progressive Canister Vacuum 116.20912006. It won't turn on. On the hose assembly, the end where the hose swivel is, there are 4 metal pins that plug into the canister. One of the...


Hi Susan,

if the pin has broken off you can do one of two things,
first, would be to find a local vacuum repair shop and take it there for them to look at. they may be able to look at the hose and fix it for you pretty cheaply. what cost, not sure.

second, would be to contact sears and order a new hose assembly complete with the ends. Make sure you specify complete and one piece so that all you have to do is plug it in and vacuum. Many times my customers have brought me just the hose and no ends because that is what sears sent.

Good luck.

The power head has developed an intermittent, but frequent, electrical short. Is there an easy way to assess where? Or is this a matter for a repair shop.


Greetings,

A majority of the time when this happens, it's caused by the hose having a short in it. You'll need to first identify what the source of the short it. To do this, turn the power brush on, and then swivel the hose on both the end before the handle, as well as the end that plugs into the vacuum, can you get the power brush to cut on/off for you from here? If yes, then you'll need to purchase a new hose. You may purchase this hose directly from Sears, however when you buy the hoses through Sears you have to assemble the hose yourself, which is very challenging. An easier way for you to replace the hose, is to purchase a Panasonic canister hose. There are two types of hoses, a 2 wire hose, and a 3 wire hose that fit most Kenmores. When you take the hose out of the canister, look on the part that plugs into the canister, how many prongs do you see here? If 2 then you'll need a 2 wire hose, if 3 then a 3 wire hose.

If you are not able to locate the short in the hose, then you may have a short either in the wand, or the power nozzle neck wire. For the wand, put one foot on your power nozzle while it's running, then pull up and down on the end of the wand that plugs into the canister, as well as the end that the hose plugs into. If you can get the vacuum power brush to cut on / off when you're doing this, this indicates your wand is bad and needs to be replaced. If it doesn't cut on / off, remove the wand and hose from the vacuum completely. Now look where the wand connects into the power nozzle. You should see two electrical prongs on the neck of the power nozzle. Do you see any burns, or black marks on the prong, or the plastic part that it comes out of? You can also test this part by turning the vacuum's neck to the left and to the right as if you were turning the vacuum.

Hopefully this helped you. If you need further help on figuring out which part is bad, please just use the clarification request here on Fixya, and I'll be happy to try and diagnose this further with you.

Thanks,

Chris J.

I have a Kenmore Canister Vac. I need to replace


Try forcing a flathead screwdriver between the flange (tab) on the hose collar and the tab on the swivel assembly itself, taking care not to gouge the wires. Saw one solution where they used 2 screwdrivers simultaneously; couldn't do that, but did loosen one side at a time.

im not familiar with kenwood vacs (i'm in uk not us) but usual cause of this type of fault is a fracture in the power cord where it enters the appliance or at the cable clamp. cut 6ins of the power cord and remake the connection

Won't power on.


It maybe cheaper by going to somewhere like the Radio Shack to get a fuse. Take the bad fuse with you and they should be able to fix you up with one.
