Question about Kenmore 22812 Bagged Canister Vacuum
I have a Kenmore Progressive canister vac (model # 116.22812201). When I turn it on, it seems like it's sucking up from the head, but no lights come on and the brush doesn't roll. In other words, if I had hard wood floors, it would be great, but it doesn't do anything for the carpet. It seems like there's no power getting to the head although there is suction. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
The extension wands are defective and have trouble with their plug connectors on each end. The power head has a reset button on top right but no lights mean no power which means the wand isn't connecting the power to anything.
Sears has a new replacement -- too bad it isn't recalled so you could get it for free ($106.59 + tax + shipping). 2nd sweeper -- same problem.
1st sweeper: I just took needlenose pliers and pulled connectors out a little further (Too bad I can't seem to make the 2nd sweeper work with this easily. It might be one of the connectors or the wiring harness inbetween with a break.) Can't buy the wiring harness for this or connectors, just the wand.
If anyone has a working wand you want to sell me email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!

I'm NO help but maybe you can enlighten me. Where IS the reset bugtton? The manual was lost in a move OR address to request a new manual. Thx

Most of the Sears power heads have a reset, did you push it? There are several reasons why the power head won't work. Switch in the handle is bad, the plug at the end of the hose is pushed in too far to make contact with the cord from the power head, if that is the case, then a plastic piece tjat holds in from doing that has broken off. Could be the cord itself or a bad motor.

hello... you might want to try checking the elbow or neck of the power nozzle for blockage. Remove the wand from the head and look through it. Also look through the wands . If there is no blockage, maybe there is a problem with you nozzle. Reattach all the parts and turn on the machine, turn on the power nozzle. Can you hear the other motor start? If so, check to see if the belt is turning. If it is not, and you definitely hear the secondary motor, then you need a belt. If it doesn't make any sound then, with the machine still running, press the button on the upper part of the power nozzle, this should reset your motor. I hope these tips helped ya, let me know, by giving feedback when asked. thank you, Rene (The Vacuum Doctor)
