Question about Kenmore 25512/ 25513 Progressive Canister Vacuum
Performance light stays on,indicating full bag,NEW bag is in polace.Yet the light stays on and there is low suction.I have checked the hose for a clog,nothing there
If you have something like a metal ball, drop it down one end of the hose to see if it comes out the other side. The hose, wands or the inlet in the power head, if any of these have a clog, that red light comes on and suction is low.

This problem could be very easy. remove the power mate from the rest of the vac. now in the hole where the wand should go spray a mild cleaning solution mixed with water. just spray a little. now take a rag and stuff it inside the hole until you can reach the other end of the rag by where the brushes are. grab each end of the rag and move it in and out (as if you are polishing a shoe) this might just do the trick. Dirt passing through this point gets stuck on the lens where the sensor is located and will cause this problem. Try not to pickup wet dirt and keep your brushes cleaned. if this does not work then bring it to your local Sears repair center.

There is a suction control on the end of the hose. Its a hole in the metal part of the hose (sticking out from the end) with a circular piece of plastic wrapped around it. I had not noticed it before, but once I covered up the hole, normal suction was restored.
