Question about Kenmore 25614 / 25615 Progressive Bagged Canister Vacuum
The height adjustment feature won't change. It's stuck on the highest level. What can I do?
Generally, there are screws that hold the beater bar onto the vac head. Loosen them, remove the glop that got in there and you should be okay. If you remove the screws, note the location of all parts...Digital cameras are great things. If you forced the adjustment, you may have broken or bent something.

I have the same/similar problem. I disassembled the vacuum
and discovered that it was not actually the servo motor itself. The problem on
mine was little a little sensor.
The motor that raises and lower the height adjustment
obviously need to stop when it reaches the highest setting (or the lowest setting)
so that it doesn't over-adjust itself outside of the normal range (example an
elevator in a building must stop trying to go down when it reaches the lowest
floor, and must stop trying to go up when it reaches the highest floor.) In the
vacuum there is a little slider and a pair of sensors that 'tells' the vacuum
when it hits the bottom or top height. The sensor in mine had gotten mashed up
and was not working anymore. Unfortunately the position it was in when it got
mashed was all the way up, and worse, because it had been triggered to tell the
vacuum that it had reached its highest point, it disable the adjustment motor from
making further adjustments.
So I bought a new sensor part ($15) (US) but since Electrolux
didn't actually stock them, it took almost three months to arrive.
Unfortunately for me, I have since forgotten where all the little pieces and
parts came from. I am trying to find a repair manual to help me reassemble it
properly, and I'll remain cautiously optimistic about this.
Hope this helps you with some insight in your problems
possible diagnosis and resolution.
