If this is the same model that I just worked on. (Red canister type vacuum) You have to remove the cord release pedal by prying or pulling it straight up with it lying on it's back. There will be two phillips screws. There is also two screws near the hinges of the door where the bag is located. Once you remove all 4 screws it will easily come apart.

How do I change the belt on the 116 model?


To properly fix a belt on a Kenmore vacuum, you will first need to indicate whether this is an upright or a canister vacuum. The model given, 116, is only the first part of the model number, and all Kenmore vacuums, upright and canister style, start with 116. There is a period first, then a whole string of numbers, 116.255553 etc.

Kenmore vacuums are mainly made by Panasonic for Sears, and most will use a Panasonic belt. If the belt is an upright, this makes it simple, and will be a Panasonic "UB" belt.

For a canister vacuum, most models use what's referred to as a cogged belt. This type of belt has little teeth on the inside of the belt, and is Panasonic CB-5 belt.

Instructions on How to Replace the Belt for an Upright;
There will usually be to plastic screws on the top of the agitator housing on the base of the vacuum, that will say belt access. Simply take a flat head screw driver, and turn the screws so that the screw is pointing up and down on both sides. Then pull the plastic agitator housing, or the top of the base of the vacuum off. Inside you will see a the roller brush, and the belt (or broken belt). Simply take the new belt and wrap it around the silver pulley located in the back of the machine, opposite the roller brush, and wrap the other end of the belt through the roller brush. Stretch the roller brush back into the housing of the machine, and replace the top of the base of the vacuum back on the machine. You should give the belt a tug, to ensure that the brush is spinning when the belt is being pulled..

How do I replace the belt on my Kenmore canister vacuum?


Turn the power brush over so the bottom faces up. On the bottom there are two access screws. Remove the two screws and then the top cover can be removed from the base. With the top cover off you can access the belt. You can get a replacement belt for your model here:

Motor keeps running after hose is removed


This is usually a stuck relay. Unplug one leg of the low voltage wire at the unit and see if that solves it. If it doesn't then the relay in the machine is bad. If it does then there is a short in that wire somewhere in the home, or a piece of metal is shorting the contacts inside of one of the wall valves. If it is the wire somewhere in the home....have you had any one work on the house recently? Hang any pictures on the wall with a metal nail? If you can't find the short Google central vacuum remote control and you can find a solution that way. If it is the relay you can most likely replace it.

Rear air port for release of too high suction


You have to open the entire mid section of the vacuum. There is about 8-10 screws to remove. I would inspect for clogs in all tube sections prior to opening. I've opened my vacuum many times it's not terribily difficult just be careful to not disturb the wire routes or pinch them when closing the vacuum back up.

Replacing the electical cord on Kenmore Progressive Vacuum


To the right of where the cord comes out of the machine is a large screw. Remove it, and slide the upper handle assembly free.
Then, on the front of the machine, remove the screws located toward the top of the vacuum just inside the bag chamber cover. This will allow the front panel to be removed, giving you access to the cord from the front.
