Question about Kenmore 23612 Progressive PowerMate Bagged Canister Vacuum

1 Answer

Light bulb burning out.

Bulb burned out on the wand of the canister model..ordered 3 aftermarket bulbs (none listed on the Sears parts list), after replacing the bulb, the new one burned out after 1 or 2 minutes of use. Replaced the bulb again, it got bright then burned out after about 2 seconds. Could there be a power surge to the circuit, and how do I fix it?

    The part isn't on RepairClinic. I bought the replacement bulbs at SweetSweep.com and it's supposed to be the right substitution, although the original bulb has a more complex filament configuration. Sears lists a substitution also, as most parts for this sweeper are no longer available, even though it is less than a year old! Sears wants $5 for the bulb, plus $7 to ship it. I'll sweep in the dark for that price!(or tape a flashlight to the nozzle).The bulbs were $3 each at SweetSweep.

My guess is you didnt get the correct value lamp for your application. Sears doesnt have the proper lamp for your machine - of you didnt want to get it from them?

Try again at Sears or RepairClinic.com for the proper lamp.

I hope this helps you

    Thanks for your feed back. I appreciate your letting me know what happened.



    There is an outside chance you could get a replacement at a good hardware store or auto parts store. It would be worth stopping to ask next time you go by. If you have Ace, Hardware, that could be a good source.



    I agree with you ... Id run the machine in the dark before I paid $10. for the lamp!

Where can i buy parts for the model C151D vacuum. any place i checked does not have that model of electrolux listed. i need the power wand attachment. i ordered one that looked like it from sears parts...


Any Aerus Electrolux store. For the one nearest you, check the below link and follow the directions. Keep in mind that if it's too far away, they do ship. If you're close enough, they do deliver.
This model is not the same company that makes the Electroluxes now sold in department and hardware stores.

My Hoover Soft and Light Supreme upright vacuum has a model #U4264-930. The last two numbers in serial # are 05. I have no manual and need to change a burned out light bulb. Need to know two things:...


http://www.vacshopusa.com/pdf/hu4253930.pdf Use this link to download a pdfd scehmatic for your model. This link is the site I got it from. http://www.vacshopusa.com/elite_%26_elite_ii.htm You may find more info there. Just from looking at the schematic, I would guess the bulb cover would pop off (carefully) and see what type of bulb it is. Remove it, take it with you to buy a replacement.

Need to replace powerhead belt in sears canister vac - cannot get head apart - plz advise


If you press on either side of the raised top light cover it will come off. Then you will be able to see the light bulb and two screw heads. Remove the two screws and the top cover of the power brush will lift off and you will be able to access the belt. You can find this belt you need here:

Burning smell from motor...what needs replaced?


Without the complete model number, I don't know for sure what componets you have, most likely is the motor. You will have to take the motor cover off and check it out. You can go to sears.com, click on parts, enter your complete model number, scroll down to cannister and it will bring up a parts list where you can order parts, also a diagram of the cannister.

Losing power to stick/floor vacuum


if you have an extension wand, the replacement will cost about $100.00. there is a way to repair both the pwr-cord on the brush assemble and the wand, but it depends on how much damage there is. also you need to check the contacts where the wand connects with the handle,and the prongs on the handle.

let me know if you still need help
