Open the cover and keep pushing back until it pops off, remove the on/off pedal(pry it up from the back), take out the 2 screws and then the cover over the motor and cord reel will come loose. You can go to sears.com, click on the parts link, put in your model # and a page comes up, you can select the main body to see it apart, and you can select the reel cord asm. The parts list and picture will come up, you can order thru that page. To replace the cord is tricky, use a allen wretch to put in one side of the reel and lock it down, maybe in a vise. Then you can start taking it apart, careful as not to let the allen wretch go or the spring will unwind, then you would have to replace it also. Repalce the cord then put it back together again. Print out the diagram of the reel so you know how it is put together.

Kenmore Powermate power head not working


I've got the same problem. Try checking out the electrical connection where the hose attaches to the canister. The hot male terminal is corroded and the female socket is burned out. Its an unfortunate design flaw that every time you open the vacuum to replace the bag the electrical connection disconnects and reconnects. Not sure if I can find replacement parts for a 10 year old vacuum or if a home-made re-wiring job is in order. Will find out tomorrow.

Kenmore canister vacuum will not turn on


No, the only effect of not cleaning them would be decreased air flow and consequently . The time between changing filters depends on how much the vacuum cleaner is used. Common failures are damaged cords and a damaged or failed power switch

How do I open a Kenmore 116 Vacuum?


You shouldn't need to remove the cord just to put a new plug on. Just cut the end off about 2 inches back, strip the outer insulation and the wire ends and install the new plug. Make sure there are no stray strands of wire hanging out from under the screws. I always solder the ends, so that I am dealing with a solid wire rather than twisted strands.

It is pretty tough to fix a retractor. Maybe hook direct and wind up the cord manual like uprights.

Power cord reel problem with a kenmore canister vacuum whisperti


Pull the cord all the way out and see if it's contaminated with anything sticky. Also check the guide rollers that the cord rides in and see if they are rolling smoothly and without resistance - they may also need cleaning. If so, clean it off and try again.

If not, it may be the spring reel itself in which case you may need to replace it.

Need to replace power cord and can't find how to open canister to replace


I had the same problem and could not find the other screws. You need to pry off the power cord retraction button, you will find two more screws under there. It's pretty easy after that!!!!
