If the floor wand is powered, there may be an electrical connection that is broken when the wand is disconnected. This is part of the design, not necessarily a fault

Depending on which model, there is a couple of scres on the bottom, then on each side and back are release catchs that you pry up to release the top, then you can get to the belt. The other model you take off the light cover, it just snaps in place, then you can take out 2 screws from the top, on each side there is a slot, put a screwdriver up into the slot and pry out to release the tabs, then the cover comes off and you can get to the belt.

I tried what reddevil6 suggested and was not able to get Sears to produce a manual. I would prefer an online manual but at this point I'm desperate enough to try anything.

SOURCE: Brush does not turn on my vaccum

If there is no suction when you disconnect the beater bar assembly near the hand hold where you grab the vacuum, then there may be either a restriction in the vacuum line between there and the vacuum section (that rolls around behind you), or the vacuum line from the handle point to the rollaround section is not properly connected. This all assumes the vacuum motor in the rollaround is running.

The beater bar section does nothing but cause dirt particles to be sucked into the vacuum system. The vacuum or suction is created in the rollaround unit.

Sounds like a motor err. Could be repaired by a professional but it never be as good as a new one. Also they you might not find anyone to repair it because the replacement motor might cost more than a new vacuum /considering it's age the motor will be hard to find and that makes it more expensive to repair./

I suggest you to buy a new vacuum.

My canister kenmore progressive is not sucking and is sptitting carpet powder dust all over the place. could it be it needs a new hpa filter? if so where on the vacuum would it be located?


Remove the hose from the canister, and turn on the vacuum. Does it produce good air flow into the hose port?. If ok, remove the hose from the sweeper unit and plug the end into the canister. If ok, check the bottom of the sweeper head for plugging of the air passages and inspect the sweeper bar for accumulation of thread, hair, and string. If the first test produced no air flow, then open the canister and remove the bag--turn the vacuum on and check for air flow into the motor. If still nothing, then check the hepa filter which should be near the air output from the canister. Go to: searspartsdirect.com and enter the sears model number from the information plate. The machine's part drawings will appear and select the vacuum case drawing which should display the hepa filter location and also be able to order the filter from the web site. Hope this helps!

Kenmore progressive canister bad connection from hose to canister


It could be, the female part of the connector is stretched open. You can usually insert something, like a dart, between the sleeve and the holder, to tighten it. If you paid with Pay Pal, see about getting your money back.

Check the hose after the brushes. With this problem there is normally a clog in between where you disconnect the hose (to use attachment) and the brushes that clean the carpet.

Kenmore canister switch issue


It most likely is the hose pcb. It has the switch on it, and part of it is either just dirty or bad.

Kenmore Progressive Model # 116 25914507


I had the same problem with my vacuum. I called in for technical service and was told to push the "reset button". It turns out that there is a small red button right next to the dirt indicator light. I pushed the button, plugged the vacuum back in and started it up and it worked like a charm! :) Hope this helps!

The switch in the hose maybe bad, motor problem, or some of these cannisters have a relay mounted by the motor, it may be bad.

Vacuum won't turn on!!


Some of these have a relay or circuit board down by the main motor that may have gone bad. Could have a problem with the circuit board in the hose handle, Could have a problem with the motor. Will jusy have to have opened up and checked. Go to Sears.com, click on parts, put in your complete model number, a parts list and picture will come up, maybe that will help you.
