There is a switch that tells the cleaner that the upright is locked upright and the beater bar won't spin until you depress the foot release and tilt the cleaner. This switch mount is poorly designed, its just sitting in a pocket at the pivot of the cleaner. I had to double stick tape it in the pocket to keep it from moving around and put silicone spray on the pivot. The pivot actuates the switch, but its a bad design.

  • Remove front cover, to do this, pull out the bag, remove the screws under the bag and on the outside. 12 screws total.
  • Locate switch on pivot
  • Confirm mounting of switch, re-adjust and use tape or epoxy.
  • Reassemble and test.
  • This is for a Kenmore 35923500 upright direct drive.

SOURCE: Kenmore Model 116 upright beltless vacuum, agitator will not turn

I had the same issue. The holder for the micro switch is very weak and will open up and allow the switch to come loose, and in my case the was not enough slack in the wire. I unplugged the unit, pressed the pedal and laid it down. Open up the bagger door and remove the bag and filter. Remove 4 screws in the bagger compartment, remove 2 screws by InteliClean indicator lights, remove 4 screws on the outside close to the light. You will be removing the blue upper case. Remove the upper case and look on the right where the lower agitator section pivots. There you will see a micro switch. I ended up lifting and tilting the lower pivot section to the side, repositioning the switch in the holder, and then wedging a full glue stick (not melting but wedging) between the white plastic housing and the switch holder. This added the strength needed to the switch housing to hold it in place. Put it all back together, install the filter and bag. This fixed mine. Good Luck.

I am looking for a parts diagram for a Miele Upright S7280 (Salsa) vacuum


See if there is a manufactures web site and inquire if diagram is available or just Google for info with proper make and model.
Fist just search for vacuum diagrams then refine search for your vacuum but this not always easy can be confusing so might have to take it to vacuum repair business or if you have not dissembled it yet just make notes when you do. Its not as hard as it seems I have done it many times.

Is there an easy way to see if a drive belt may be broken? It's so difficult to push my Kenmore upright vacuum!


Well there is only turning the vacuum over and see if the brush is rotating.

If it is not moving then you need to replace the belt.

If you need to know how to remove the bottom plate to replace the belt, please post the model number, the numbers you posted above are not the kenmore model numbers, the model numbers will look like this

Theres a little bendable neck that hose with suction plugs into. Thats the one thats clogged. You will have to fish it out by taking off the roller and clearing the clog.

I need to take apart my Kenmore Progressive Bagless Upright with Inteli-Clean System


What problem are you trying to fix? The is no belt so you don't need to remove the bottom plate. If you are trying to remove the main hose, remove 4 screws on the back and remove the plate. There are 2 more screws under that.
