Model 116 29319800

How do you disassemble the handle on my Kenmore Mod. #116-29319800 vac? I removed the 5 screws that hold the handle halfs together but there's a plastic sleeve over the end of the hose that I can't turn or slide back to allow me to get at the on/ off switch.

I require the Old hose handle/end plug disassemble instruction for a Kenmore Whispertone model 116.20600001c

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
There are some hoses that have separate hose ends and some hoses that you have to replace the entire hose the way the manufacturer made the hose. There are some local vac dealers that may have a new, or a good used hose or they also may have a non-genuine replacement hose that you could use. It really depends on the hose that you have and how it was made.
So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

SOURCE: how do you remove the plastic end fitted to the flexible hose

Not necessarily. Some Dyson models have an all inclusive flexi hose which attaches to the handle spine. Check EBay for replacement flexi hoses - UK has many sellers - or handles which have the metal pole and the flexi tube attached. 
Alternatively take off the flexi hose from the bottom rear of the Dyson - it can come out via a press in lock release but it may take some time to do this. Once that is done the flexi hose should come down freely from the metal tube. If it doesnt then you may need to consider both replacements.
Dont forget to rate, thanks.

SOURCE: I need to reassemble my rainbow e series electrified hose handle

Yes, it is a ground wire. When you put it back together, make sure that the two halves of the hose handle are holding the wire up against the metal. I just had one apart the other day for the first time and if I recall correctly, the wire goes near the center for reassembly. Hope this helps!

How do I take the handle apart on my Kenmore Progressive vacuum model 116.21614011? I removed the screws but it won't come apart.


There are catches that snap the handle together. It's hard to separate the handle without breaking the catches. Replacement may be required

How to change upper filters?


Open the vac as though to change the cone and remove the plastic inner cone with the slotted screw at the bottom.. Underneath you will find a 5" disk , likely coated with fine dust.
That is the one which needs to be changed. Around that disc will be three more screws holding the upper housing onto the vac. These ones are accessible from inside, if changing the motor.
Below the handle of the vac there is a serial number ring and three screws in an offset triangle. If you remove these and the rubber cover for the toe switch, the vac housing will come off. This will reveal the `foam or cotton ``muffler``. You can replace it or wash and dry it if foam. It acts as a muffler more than a a filter....

Electrolux Central Vac Hose Clogged


John,

There are several handle types. The pump style has about 8 phillips screws that hold the handle together. Make sure it is not connected to the wall as some have 120V cords or direct connect pins to supply power to a motor driven brush.

The two halves will separate and if it has slip rings the tube will lift up out with the hose.

If this is a low voltage hose, there are three tabs at the base of the handle you press in and pry out the end piece. You will need to remove the switch contacts before the hose will pull out. Remove the phillips screw that holds the switch trim in place and lift out. This will allow the cover to be removed to lift the contacts off the slip rings and the hose will drop out.

Hope this helps!

Dirt Devil upright vac


It could be a broken handle release, but it also could be the the clamps where the handle asm, and the base hold together came use, this will cause this problem on some Dirt Devils. The top has to come off to check this out.

DIRT DEVIL MADEL 08245 BRUSE DOSEN'T ROTATE


I had the same problem and fixed it to where it would work OK, althought not 100%. 1. Disconnect the hose that goes to the roller brush area. 2. Press the button right below the power switch while sliding the handle what ever direction it will go to release it from the body of the vac. 3. Remove 3 screws from the handle halves. 4. Remove 2 screws from a keyed black plastic piece that hold the handle halves together. 5. Carefully separate the handles halves from the clear plastic piece in the center that allows you to view the brush and belt. 6. If the belt is broken or missing, replace it and reassemble, if the belt is OK, remove the roller and test if the bearings spin freely. 7. If they don't, then remove the clip or clips of each end that hold the bearing(s) in place. (Work in a controlled environment so that when the little clip goes flying you'll be able to locate it without moving the refridgerator.) 8. Clean the back side of the bearing of hair, dust and dirt. (used compressed air if you have it) 9. Reassemble the bearing(s) you removed and cleaned on each end of the roller. I used a spritz of teflon dry lube spray on each when I put them back together. 10. Disassemble the air motor bearing from the shaft on the end that does not have the belt gear. Be careful not to lose the flat thrust bearing/washer at the bottom of the bearing housing. Clean, lube and reassemble. 11. Since I felt I couldn't remove the belt gear from the shaft (to get at the bearing), without damaging it, I worked at cutting the hairs and threads wound around the shaft. I used a single edge razor blade to painstakingly cut and remove what I could, then lubed and reassembled air motor. 12. I then reassembled everything and tried it. IT WORKED. The still sluggish bearing on the gear end of the air motor wasn't enough to stop the motor from turning the brush at an acceptable speed and torque.

Received hoover powermax fusion vac today and the handle will not go down as indicated in diagram.


What is your model number? A Savvy and Powermax are differntent models. The Savvy the handle slides on and there are 4 screws to hold it in place. The Powermax has 2 screws to hold it in place. have you removed them before trying to put the handle on. If you have, you just have to work so it will slide down then put in the screws to secure it.
