Kenmore Quick Clean - how to remove dirt from cannister

I have a Kenmore Quick Clean, which I bought at Sears on sale.  When I got it home, I realized that there was NO Owner's Manual with it.  When I called the store, they told me that it was probably an 'open box' purchase - meaning that the product had been sold, then returned.  The returned products often no longer have the Owners' Manual with them.  The sales lady told me that all sales were final and that I could find a copy of the Owners' Manual on the Kenmore web page.  However, when I tried that - I had NO luck.  
Basically, all I want to do at this point is to figure out how to remove the canister which holds the dirt so that I can empty that and begin the operation all over again.  I have looked in every conceivable nook and cranny but just can NOT find any kind of latch or button which would release the canister so it can be removed and emptied.  Does anyone know how to do this.  Also, if someone has a ink for the CORRECT Kenmore web page which WOULD have a copy of the Owners' Manual for this product, I would greatly appreciate it!  Thanks in advance - Deborah

If you look at the top front of the canister, there is a groove that may say release above it. Pull up; it is a handle, and then pull forward. The canister will then release, and you can twist off top, and empty canister. I hope this has been helpful.

I bought a Kenmore 30012 Quick Clean Vacuum on 7/5/2011 it was working fine till just recently. Its not picking up anything off my rug, I've cleaned the filters, the belt is fine. It was blowing dust...


A clogged inlet. Something is likely clogging the opening where the dirt goes in. Paper, cellophane, or anything else light enough to get sucked in but too large to pass through.

My kenmore quick clean vacuum cleaner has no suction. Just seems to blow the dirt out and away from the cleaner. The canister is empty and the filter is clean, so what's going on?


Hi,
The hose or hoses are plugged...take all the hoses apart and stretch them out... run a stiff wire through them or something like a broom handle...you will find that they are full of dust and dirt inside...

Check down by the brush roll to see if the inlet is clogged. This type of problem usually means there is a clog. But you do have a year's warr. on this, if you can't figure it out, then take it a Sears repair shop.

Vacuum Cleaner sucking dirt out of the cannister instead of into it.


You didn't give you model number, but check by the brush roll to see if the inlet there is clogged, hose still has a clog, filters are bad and need replacing. Does the brush roll turn, belts stretch after short usuage and will not drive the brush roll under load, may need to replace the belt.
