Kenmoor Progressive 360 seems to have a short somewhere between the handle and the head of the vacuum. I believe the short is were the handle meets the wand. Help!

With a multi meter set to ohms, back probe one wire at a time from the motor to the switch while shaking it check for an open. if none are found continue this be on the switch until the open is located. Make repairs as needed.

Hat is most likely true because the wire is constantly being bent there. To repair or replace it you will need to open up the whole bottom of the device and the wand as well to expose the wire completely for inspection.

SOURCE: canister vacuum keeps turning off, can push

its sounds like the problem is either the power head wire which when your using it and twisting it left and right, turns it off.. Or it could be in the hose where the connect meets with the unit.

SOURCE: electrolux oxygen vacuum

WARNING WARNING Danger danger Will Robinson! The power head "wand" and the hose from the body of the vacuum have shorts in them. While my wife was using this machine.. she started smelling plastic.. seeing whitish smoke and then sparks... The pin connector arc'd through the plastic... Some research on Google found that this has been a large problem for Electrolux, when i tried to call the factory.. robots.... no solution. Then I contacted a distributor and they informed me that it was not really that big of a problem. Only later to say, that they had replaced ALOT of them. My unit was past its warranty period so I just hardwired it. (now the unit is only two pieces, body and hose w/wand.)

hello... you might want to try checking the elbow or neck of the power nozzle for blockage. Remove the wand from the head and look through it. Also look through the wands . If there is no blockage, maybe there is a problem with you nozzle. Reattach all the parts and turn on the machine, turn on the power nozzle. Can you hear the other motor start? If so, check to see if the belt is turning. If it is not, and you definitely hear the secondary motor, then you need a belt. If it doesn't make any sound then, with the machine still running, press the button on the upper part of the power nozzle, this should reset your motor. I hope these tips helped ya, let me know, by giving feedback when asked. thank you, Rene (The Vacuum Doctor)

SOURCE: kenmore progressive 360 vacuum cleaner has low

Check the tube that leads down to the brush head for clogging as well as any motor or HEPA filters. If that still shows nothing, take the cover off the brush head (like you're changing the belt) and look for obstructions in there. Usually, if you have low suction on the accessory hose, the problem is with a motor filter, HEPA filter, or a clog where the hose goes into the unit. If you have good suction on the accessory hose but none on the floor, it's usually in the brush head (clog or broken belt) Good luck

My floorpiece keeps turning on and off when I try and vacuum. It almost seems like it is shorting out, but it isn't. I suspect it is something to do with the handle piece attaching to the floor piece.


You are exactly correct.

What it is exactly is the hose connection to the power nozzle. The plug on the handle of the hose should be flush with the plastic piece below it. To correct this, you can open the handle and push the plug back into place. What I normally recommend is a super glue of somesort, like krazy glue.

remove the plug, glue into place and make sure that the recepticle or plug is out far enough to make a solid connection.

Good luck

Power Head keeps cutting in and out while vacuuming???Canister motor keeps running but the power head starts and stops like there is a short or some loss of connection somewhere. Any ideas?


The electrical terminal at the top of the extension wand may be loose or corroded. Unplug the vacuum and remove the wand from the hose assembly. Look at the 2 prongs and clean off any corrosion using a a Q-tip or scrape with a screwdiver if it's more persistent. After cleaning reconnect the wand to the hose and try it again. If the prongs are not corroded, they might be loose instead or they might not be aligned properly. If this is the case then bending the prongs very slightly may help realign them. The part that may be giving you the trouble is called the terminal cover (PN 8191782). It costs about $10 but the problem is knowing the procedure to actually replace the part. CAN ANYONE EXPLAIN HOW TO OPEN UP THE EXTENSION WAND TO REPLACE THE TERMINAL COVER ??

THe vacuum won't divert from hose to carpet


Turn the vacuum off, return the handle to upright locked position.

Then securely fit hose into the hose holder.

Then depress lever and engage handle into non-locked position, and turn on vacuum on "carpet"

There will always be some airflow through the hose, but when the hose is parked it creates more airflow to the carpet head

Kenmore progressive 360 will not turn off


I have the same problem. Couldn't turn it off and now it doesn't work for the floor setting (though I can now turn it off). I suspect the switch in the handle is the problem but having trouble opening the handle...

I have a Kenmore progressive cannister vacuum cleaner.


There should be a pile height pedal on rear of the attachment, just behind the where the wand goes into it, near the handle release pedal. Just keep clicking on it to go through the height settings.

Please rate if this helps :)

Losing power to stick/floor vacuum


if you have an extension wand, the replacement will cost about $100.00. there is a way to repair both the pwr-cord on the brush assemble and the wand, but it depends on how much damage there is. also you need to check the contacts where the wand connects with the handle,and the prongs on the handle.

let me know if you still need help
