Question about Kenmore 22812 Bagged Canister Vacuum
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.

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.
