Question about Kenmore 35912 / 35913 Progressive Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Intelliclean green light comes on almost immediately when using

I recently changed the bag in the vacuum. Seems like the light goes to all green very quickly even though I can see that it is not picking up all the dirt. Does the machine need to sense there is a new bag or do I need to clean/change the filter?

    When you have it in sensor mode, it thinks the carpet is clean and goes to the low setting with the green light on. If you press the button twice though, it stays on the high setting the whole time, so that is how I get my carpets clean.

We changed to a new bag and changed the filter but everytime we turn it on it goes off and the green light turns red.


Try this. Detach hose from canister. Turn on. What happens?
If it runs, place hand directly over intake port. What happens?
If it shut off immediately, an internal part is broken and needs to be replaced. This is a repair that needs to be done at an authorized Aerus, new name for the Electrolux company that made these vacuums, service center.
It's also a problem that's seen a lot when generic "made to fit" bags are used. Genuine bags are made by Home Solutions and will have their name on it. Use of generic bags also voids the warranty. Which, depending on date of purchase, yours may still have on the canister itself with it's components.
Wiring and switch problems can also cause this, so the machine, including hose, wands, and power nozzle, should be taken to a service center for a complete check.

The vacuum won't turn on. plugged in, all lights flashing. no power


When switched on the vacuum goes through a self diagnosis test. Lights will come on for a while, then go out. If everything is okay, then the blue "Optimum" light will come on and stay on. If it turns of, a red indicator light should come on providing information on what's needed; i.e., filter or bag change needed.

Green light on power nozzle of Kirby vacuum, Model G7D


The green light is just to inform you that the brushroll is spinning. there is a magnet on the brushroll that makes the green light come on every time it rotates. also why it looks like the light flickers because the magnet only makes contact once per rotation of your brushroll. Let me know if you have any other questions.

The Intelliclean function isn't working properly. The indicators illuminate when I switch Intelliclean off, then on again, but the indicators are not changing (nor the power level) when I vacuum dirty...


I was having the same problem with my Intelliclean and I read somewhere on the internet that I should undo the bag, clean in the area where the bag attached to vacuum. When I took bag off, something was stuck there and after I removed it, everything worked fine. I think you need to clean the sensor and check your bag.

You may need a new belt, it may have stretched enough so it isn't turning the brush roll anymore.
