Question about Kenmore 34720 Upright Vacuum
I have a Kenmore Quick Clean vacuum, and when I turn it on there is a loud screeching whistle-type noise that comes from the back of the vacuum, from what I would call an air exchange. There is also a burning smell. The vacuum still picks stuff up but the noise is unbearable. This problem started happening after I emptied out the canister one time.
On the back side of most kenmore vacuums, there is an air relief diaphragm that, when the motor is sucking but there is no air flow, will pop, causing the sound you heard. check your hose for blockage, check your bag and or filter for blockage,even your attachments/wands can become lodged with debris. Often, after a few, the motor will get hot and the machine will shut down. This is a thermostat on the motor that protects it from overheating. I am quite sure that this will solve your kenmore woes, fine choice in vacuum, kenmore, tried and true. hope to have helped! Have a super, and hopefully sucking(ha ha) Sunday
