Help! i have a whispertone 300 model 116 28612790. the retractable cord is jammed & i could only get the front part of the canister open that houses the motor, etc. there are only 2 screws to open it...


even if you get it apart chances are it needs a new spring but it requires a special tool to get the rubber molding off that separates the top from bottom and sears repair guys and vacuum shops have them. I would take it to a used vac store and get them to fix it before you try yo remove the rubber seal as it will not go back on well and that will cause the machine to not get aproper seal and lose airflow.

Prong on one side of plug broken


You will need to get in touch with a Sears repair center and replace the cord and plug (they're one unit). If you do not have a local repair center, you can order the part online at searspartsdirect

Sears Kenmore Whispertone Vacuum Problem:


If you push inwards on each side of the light cover on top you can remove it. With the light cover removed remove the (2) access screws. Now you will be able lift of the entire top cover from the base. You will then see the belt and roller brush, remove the old belt and replace with a new one. You can get the replacement belt you need here:

Power cord broken inside reel


the reel doesn't come apart, its a replaceable item. the only place that you can get another one is through sears.

Kenmore whispertone 100 model 116. powerhead no


  • The motor / cord compartment cover must be removed to access the cord reel. There are four screws that hold the cover to the chassis. Two of the screws are found under the cord-retractor-foot-pedal on the top back of the canister. To access these screws the pedal must be removed. To do this, press the pedal down and look (from the top) for the four plastic clips that attach/hold the pedal hinges to the cover. There are two at the end corners and two in the middle. Using a long, thin flat-head screw driver (or similar instrument) press each clip to unhook/popout the hinges. Note: the foot pedal spring will also come out when the pedal is removed.

    The other two screws are found under the curved hinges of the vaccum bag compartment cover. To access these, lift the cover as if accessing the vacuum bag. Keep pulling the cover back until the hinges release from the motor cover. Don't worry, it is disigned to do this and will not break but it may require a little force. A long phillip-head screw driver will be needed to access and remove each screw

Hot cord


likely after all these years that the motor is starting to go bad and draw more amps thasn it should. a new motor at a vac dealer is your best bet. it was likely made by panasonic, so a new panasonic is your best bet, and less $$$than the kenmore for the same vacuum. sears parts are extremely expensive
