Was using kenmore whispertone stopped suddenly disconnected brush unit will not switch on ????


if you took the hose out of the wand assembly then it may not turn on as the hose handle has a power button on it and must be connected to turn on the unit.Also check the powerhead for a reset button (small red / or black button on the back of the head){back of head not the bottom}

When i pull out hose it immediately will **** inwards together and I it is hard to move and has litten suction.


Sounds like a clogged hose. Try to roll a marble or small rock through hose. If it doesn't go through, it's clogged. If you've got a shop or canister vacuum, try hooking your hose to the exhaust port of other vacuum. Detach your hose from your vacuum first. Turn on other vacuum, attempting to blow out or dislodge clog. You can also try using an air pressure hose, or getting a long length of PVC pipe, to help clear it. Do not use sharp/pointed objects.
If the marble rolls through, check the flex hose inside the power head, This may be clogged and need to be unplugged. If it can't be unclogged without damaging it, it will need to be replaced.

I have kenmore progressive and it is clogs is there a way to unclog it


The easiest way we unclog this machine is to take another canister vacuum and use its' hose to put on the hose of your machine then switch it on and **** the clog out of your machine. Works great.

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:

KENMORE pROGRESSIVE WITH DIRECT DRIVE SUCKING NOISE


I had the exact same problem. The port is a relief valve to prevent the motor from burning out if the hose/bag are clogged. Check the main hose from end to end after removing the 3 screws that hold it to the body of the vacuum near the handle. If that's clear then it's almost certainly clogged in the short tube that goes from the beater bar housing to the hose extension (where the flex tube attaches). There are two ways of going about this.

Option 2
(the way I did it) -- Lock the base on the upright position and turn the unit over. Unscrew the 12 or so screws in the black base. You'll need to depress the release pedal when removing the screw at the end of the pedal. Once you have all of the screws removed carefully wiggle the base loose. You do not need to remove it completely to access the short flex tube. Clean it out and replace everything in the opposite order from how you removed it.

Option 1 (what I would do next time) -- Cut a wire coat hanger and make a small 1/2" hook at the end. Bend the straight section into about a 4" radius arc leaving plenty to handle at the end opposite the hook. Carefully snake the hanger down the tube and pull out the giant clump of hair and dirt that's clogging the vacuum.

cheers -- eric

Clogged vacuum hose


I used a snake like they sell for unclogging pipes. I can use the snake on one end to break it up. I attach the other end to my industrial wet.dry vac and **** it clean. Sometimes I cannot imagine how it fills half a five gallon bucket of dog hair and stuff.
