Question about Kenmore 23313 Whispertone Bagged Canister Vacuum

1 Answer

Can't shut off my vacuucm, it keeps on working despite the fact that I place it on OFF.

My vacuum keeps on working even when I turn it off. The only way to shut it is to pull the plug out of the outlet. I have unscrewed the nozzle and checked the switch, i have also taken out the switch and it still does the same thing.

I presume the brush is rotating? If so I think your feeling its blocked somewhere is probably right. The most likely is a small stick or hairgrip type debris. This may require dismantling of the main body to trace. If you are not competent, take it to an appliance agent. If you are then carefully remove the various screws holding the main body together. Pay particular attention to following the vacuum passage from the brush or hose duct and I'm sure you will find something. The only other possibility is the motor is not driving the vacuum fan. Check the lower casing for this. Exploded parts lists are available online to give you an idea of what to find inside.

Why would the filter in the ball keep unlatching while vacuming? The ball get hot also.

Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

Please be assured it's normal for the Ball to become hot in use. This is where the motor is housed, to give the vacuum a low centre of gravity. The motor will generate heat as it runs, but it's protected by a sensor which will shut the vacuum down for protection if it starts to overheat.

However, the HEPA post-motor filter should stay in place in use. It's worth checking the filter is correctly in place, as shown in the video below. Press the filter firmly down into place until you hear an audible 'click' from the release catch:

If you're confident the filter is still coming out of place in use, despite being correctly and securely fitted, we should be able to help you further. Please give our experts a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

If it shuts off after being used for a whirl and won't come back on for a while it is probably overheating. The heat sensor shuts the machine off and won't let it turn back on until it cools down. If this is the issue it could be the filters are clogged and not allowing enough airflow to keep the motor cool. Most bag less vacuum filters should be replaced frequently even if they are cleaned regularly.

My back wheel won't roll on my electrolux 2100. If I turn the cannister over, I can spin the wheel, but when I place it right side down, it just drags on the floor. How do I replace it?

Hi you need to find a local Vacuum repair place one that deals in Electrolux, and go there and take the vacuum or the make and model, and ask for a replacement part, that is the only way that you would be able to obtain spare parts, in fact while you are there, perhaps even inquire as to how much it may cost to do it? ask for a "Quote" and go from there.

My Oral-B Sonic Complete stops working afer 2x use despite being on the charger always.

These toothbrushes need to be completely discharged every six months or so to keep the battery fresh. Maybe the battery has packed in.
Take it out of the charger and turn it on till it stops completely then re-charge. It might kick start the battery.

My vacuum turns on for a second and shuts off. I have replaced the bag and filter, and it still happens. The replace bag light turns on after I do this.

1. Detach the hose and turn on. If it runs, place hand over opening. If it shuts off, the control valve assembly is dirty or worn out and needs cleaned/replaced. This is a job that should be done by an authorized Aerus Electrolux service tech. It's most commonly caused by use of "made-to-fit Electrolux" bags, rather than the genuine bags made by Home Solutions.

2. If the vacuum keeps running after detaching hose and placing hand over in port, then check the hose. Drop a coin or similar small item through the hose. If it doesn't go through, there's a clog. It will probably be at the bend of the handle. Plug hose into exhaust port and turn vacuum on. Make sure the other end of the hose is in a bag to catch the dirt and stuff coming out. If you have problems, it's easily removed by a service tech.

Belt Keeps Coming Off

Replace the belt with afresh, proper sized one. Yours is stretched. It will be shiny on the underside. hoover belts are meant to fit snug. Check the bearings on the end of the brush roll to remove dirt and thread. The proper belt will need to be stretched into place using the brush for leverage. Likely that your low carpet is more dense causing enough drag to throw the stretched belt.

My vacuum will not pick up even fuzz on the carpet

If the suction is strong through the hose and its still not picking up, then something is definately clogged despite the strong suction and rolle brush. Check all inspection tubes including the main dirt channel behind the roller brush. You may find something that keeps getting in the way when dirt or hair is trying to bypass through.

U5180-910 vacuum shuts off on own

I had same problem. Turned out to be the filter that sits above the waste cannister. Remove the waste cannister. There is a little orange lever that releases the filter. It was caked with dirt not allowing any air flow causing the motor to overheat.

This foam filter gets dirty pretty fast.

Same Shut Off Problem as Hamster71

The part that you call the particle size sensetivity adjuster is bad. There are 2 seals in the assembly, the lower seal is slipping out of place because the plastic lip which keeps it in place is broken. Split housings and replace part. This machine is alot of work to take appart and get back together correctly. Might want to bring to local vac shop. good luck.
