Replace Kenmore Vacuum Hose

Ref: Sears Kenmore Wispertone Vacuum mdl. 116.27612690 I purchased a replacement hose for one that is crushed. How do I remove the old one from the swivel assembly and the handle assembly on the other end of the hose? I tried to unscrew them but they appear to be glued or something. Is there a trick to removing these?

    same problem

  • laleandra Jul 10, 2008

    I am trying to find a replacement hose for a very old Kenmore cannister. Sears has discontinued the hose replacement. Can I buy just a hose part and if so where and then somehow remove the old hose and replace it with the new one? How do I get it out and how do I put the new hose in?

    Thanks

    let me add this caution to the link previous....maybe it's my bonehead way of looking at it but let me clarify a little as I tried to detach it from the where the two hard plastic pieces meet. the tabs are under the hard plastic where the hose fits in. they slide over the ribs in the hose. they are hard plastic tabs that press the hose over a hard plastic inner pipe that the hose slides over. hope that helps...excuse I am going to glue my tabs back on now

Vacuum won't shut off. Switch appears good. Won't shut off with hose removed.


The "vacuum won't shut off" problem is caused by a faulty triac (electronic component) on the P.C.B. assembly. You have two choices, depending on your handiness:
  1. Easiest: Replace the PCB: P.N.=KC86WBZRZ000
  2. More difficult: Replace the triac: P.N.=BTA16-600CW (ST Microelectronics): http://www.st.com/internet/com/TECHNICAL_RESOURCES/TECHNICAL_LITERATURE/DATASHEET/CD00002265.pdf
The PCB costs about $25.00 from Sears, whereas the triac costs about $1.50. Sears will not sell the triac - you'll have to find an electronics parts supplier.

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.

Vacuum wont run


THE BEST SOLUTION IS TO NEVER BUY A SEARS VACUUM AGAIN. THEY DO NOT LAST AND WARRANTY AND REPAIRS ARE TOO EXSPENSIVE! I BOUGHT THREE OVER TEH YEARS, AND NOW AS YOU KNOW, THREE STRIKES AND SEARS IS OUT!!!!!

Can the damaged hose 8 inces from handle be cut then replace hose


If the hose is non-wired then you can fix this yourself. When you Plug the cuff into your wall inlet does the vacuum turn on automatically? If so then you should be able to trim the hose with no ill effects other than losing eight inches of cleaning area.

If the hose has a switch on it's handle that turns the vacuum on and off, you will probably need a technician to fix the hose. Some wired hoses even have High Voltage lines in them and should never be taken apart.

Need to know if a replacement part can be purchased and where


Kenmore canisters are privately labeled Panasonic canisters and sometimes panasonic parts will fit them. Any reputable independent dealer should be able to tell you if the part you're looking for is intercharngable with a Panasonic, but he/she will probably need to actually see the unit.

Your other option is to take it to the Sears service dept. They are the only ones who have access to the schematics and "Kenmore" parts. It'll probably be more expensive through them though.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
There are some hoses that have separate hose ends and some hoses that you have to replace the entire hose the way the manufacturer made the hose. There are some local vac dealers that may have a new, or a good used hose or they also may have a non-genuine replacement hose that you could use. It really depends on the hose that you have and how it was made.
So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Kenmore canister hose


The part number for the hose is 4370993, you can go to sears.com, put int he part number and order it. You will only get just the hose, you have to take the ends off of the old one and put them on the new hose.

Hose


You will have to replace the hose. If you want to get it thru Sears, go to Sears.com, click on parts, enter the model number, if they have it in their system, you can find the part there and order it. Or take the model number and go to where someone has Hoover parts and buy it thru them.

You can sometimes find the PCB from a 3rd-party supplier. For example, this one on EBay: Mel-Co KC86WBZRZ000
