I cannot remove the tubing to replace the harness wires from a Kenmore canister vacuum.


One wire of the old harness is connected to the hose and another wire is connected to the switch. Just pull wires and female plug that is attached to the plastic tube pray both side with flat scewdriver

My Kenmore progressive canistor vacuum has a loose electrical conection in the hose handle. How do you take the handle apart?


There are 3 visible screws there in the handle and one not so visible.

start by removing the 3 visible screws.
Take a flat screwdriver and pry off the colored portion of the handle that would contain the switch.
There is one more screw in the handle just in front of the switch, remove that one.

This is where it gets tricky.

under the handle between the handle and the hose, is a little square shaped pry area that is locked. Use the same flat screwdriver to get at that and release it. The rest of the handle should come apart pretty easy now.

Good luck.

Kenmore vacuum model 25614 power mate will not reset


What you see from the outside is usually a pop up button which sits on top of the actual internal switch remove the lid of the power mate as though you are cleaning the brush roll or changing the belt. Then test the reset internally. Post back to advise .

The on/off switch won't click in either direction.


If this is the switch on the hose the switch can pop out the front for inspection. If it is the switch on the vac the rear housing of the vac needs to be removed to access the actual rocker switch underneath the switch pad. Both are inexpensive. If the vac is in good shape check the switch and replace if necessary.

Kenmore Model 116 upright beltless vacuum, agitator will not turn


I had the same problem. The agitator stopped turning after I sucked up a foreign object (my wife's watch) and it got jammed in the intake. After removal of the watch the agitator did not spin when turning on the machine, and the reset button never deployed (it remained buried in its housing and would not depress with a paper clip). The agitator was not bound and I could manually move it in both directions with ease. Faced with prospect of paying $125 or more for a repair, a good sharp kick to the chassis from the top promptly fixed the problem. I have found that kicking malfunctioning electronics often works.

Kenmore upright vacuum model 116.35923500. not rotating when on. Easy way to clean without taking apart?


There is a switch that tells the cleaner that the upright is locked upright and the beater bar won't spin until you depress the foot release and tilt the cleaner. This switch mount is poorly designed, its just sitting in a pocket at the pivot of the cleaner. I had to double stick tape it in the pocket to keep it from moving around and put silicone spray on the pivot. The pivot actuates the switch, but its a bad design.
  • Remove front cover, to do this, pull out the bag, remove the screws under the bag and on the outside. 12 screws total.
  • Locate switch on pivot
  • Confirm mounting of switch, re-adjust and use tape or epoxy.
  • Reassemble and test.
  • This is for a Kenmore 35923500 upright direct drive.

Kenmore progressive/direct drive-- roller stopped turning


We have the same vacuum & had the same problem. As the vacuum ages & the hose is periodically removed from the nozzle to use with the attachments, the white switch, adjacent to the nozzle connection, wears. If the hose is not fully reinserted or if the attachment notches are inadvertently aligned with the white stitch, the agitator may not work reliably. Assuring the hose is fully inserted, with the locking notches away from the switch has eliminated this problem with our vacuum cleaner.
