Question about Kenmore 25512/ 25513 Progressive Canister Vacuum
I opened the machine to change the bag. Now it won't close. I'm afraid to push too hard in case I would break the plastic hinges.
You have probably closed it by now :-) but when this happened to us we found that if we opened the tool compartment on the lid, the main lid then closed on the bag with a tiny bit of jiggling around. I don't know why, but this worked.

You might have the vacuum bag in incorrectly. Pull your vacuum bag all the way out, and check the cardboard for arrows (as some bags are cut to go in one way, and one way only). If your vacuum has a cartridge that the vacuum bag goes into, make sure that this is seated completely, securely, and correctly. After you have checked all of this, seat your lid meaning make sure it is going to sit correctly on the housing, then as you are closing the lid, check the latch as it begins to close - making sure that the male and female portions are going to match up. You may have to give it a little pressure, but should not have to put enough pressure to break anything. Good luck.
