Model 116 hose clog?
Posted by rfrazelle on Jun 23, 2008
My old canister model 116 followed with numbers 2839580 marked Kenmore 3.9 with power-mate, worked fine until the bag got overly full. I have changed the bag, cleaned the filter, and removed a nasty hair/fur/dust clog :-p from the lower metal tube of the power mate. It now has very weak suction and won't pick up anything. I suspect a clog in the grey plastic flexible tubing attached to the canister but cannot get it apart. Advice?
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Kenmore 22313 Bagged Canister Vacuum. The best way to find a clog in an electric hose is to use a steel ball or a large marble to place inside the hose and to let it so threw as far as it can to determine where the hose clog is. Once you have determined where the hose clog is then you can use a small end of a broom handle of take an old wire coat hanger and place a hook on the end and try to pull the clog out of the electric hose – the electric hose is very expensive so try not to damage the hose in any way, shape or form. Or another way is that id you have another canister vacuum you can try to pull the clog apart by using two vacuums turned on and running. If you are successful then run the round marble or steel ball thru the hose again and the clog should be cleared.

Hi its Darran at Dyson.
It would be worth checking that the brush bar is turning when the machine is in the vacuuming position. If it is not turning, please press the re-set switch located on the cleanerhead.
If this starts the brush bar turning but does not solve the problem, please check the cleanerhead for blockages and remobve any threads or hair trapped around the brush bar.
Shoudl you need any further help or advice, please contact our Helpline on 1866MYDYSON.

SOURCE: I have a kenmore vacuum,
If the squeal is coming from the canister portion of the machine, then you most likely have a fairly serious motor/fan problem. There are no moving parts on that machine other than the fan/motor assembly in the canister.
A local service center could confirm that. You can try to get a free quote if they offer such a service. Many may charge a fee even for diagnostic work.
If the noise is coming from the power-head, then there are multiple possibilities ranging from bad brushroller bearings to failing power-head motor.
