Kenmore vaccum cleaner

I have a Kenmore vaccum cleaner model 116 (36312691), serial number DG2844863 for last 3-4 years. It runs great but lately I have a problem with the ON/OFF switch. I was wondering if you can tell me where can I find the replacement switch?

Switch number is 4369051 . You can go to sears.com, click on the parts link, put in the part number and you can order it thru them. Or put in you model number, click on dust compartment and a parts list and a picutre diagram will come up. You can order there also.

I need to know where can I take my dyson vaccum to repair in Las Vegas, NV. And, if it's under warranty.


This site doesn't have local information, but from my own experiences you can take it to any vacuum cleaner repair shop for repair.

Just picked up the vacuum - any idea the dates of production on a G4 Anniversary Edition?


The 10 digit serial number on ALL G series Kirbys (G3, G4, G5, G6, Ultimate G, Diamond Edition and Sentria) is engraved into the aluminum on the side of the Kirby, right above where the cloth bag attaches to the machine. This serial number contains the EXACT manufacture date of the machine.
The first number in the serial number will be a 1, 2, 3 or 4 and pertains to the quarter of the year in which the machine was manufactured. The second and third number is the year of manufacture.
FOR EXAMPLE.... in the serial number 1071104984, the machine was manufactured in the first quarter of the year 2007.
The G4 models were manufactured from 1993-96.
My G4 80th Anniversary edition doesn't seem to fit this, however. It's 8941106700. I suspect it's got a replacement handle.

Model 116 Kenmore vacuum cleaner. 20+ years old,


Greetings,

I believe that this is probably a Kenmore Canister vacuum cleaner, but I can't be positive. The model number 116 is just the first part, and all Sears vacuum cleaners start with model 116. There is a . after the 116 that will identify the vacuum. If you'd like me to be more model specific, or if this is an upright vacuum, please just request a clarification and I can take pictures even for you.

If this is a canister style vacuum, then you'll need to remove the foot pedal that rewinds the cord reel. There are 2 or 3 (depending on which model you have) hidden screws underneath of this pedal. You may simply pry off the pedal using a flat head screw driver. Also when you have the bag door open, you may just pull forward while it's open, and this will remove the bag door housing. There should be two screws in the front of the motor housing that need to be removed as well.

My guess from the age of the vacuum that's probably the motor that's gone. If this is the case, you probably can still get a motor if you'd like to just replace the motor inside, rather then buying a new vacuum. Typical Sears Kenmore canister motors sell for 79-120 dollars.

Again, I'd be happy to try and help you further, I will just need the entire model number after the 116. to know which vacuum you have.

If this was helpful, please click the 4 thumbs up icons in the top of the page. Thank you,

Chris J.

I need a hose for a Kenmore vacuum. The serial number I found is D80501276 and model numder is 116. Another number on the bottom is 2841080. Where can I get these? Claire Salter


Go to the Sears appliance center. They should have parts for vacuums at least up to 10 years old.

Sometimes vacuum cleaner repair shops have hoses that are used that may work. Check in your community.

On-off switch on vacuum cleaner does not work


These machines had a defective switch and a bulletin was sent out to all service depots. If you contact any Hoover Warranty Depot, they will replace the switch, wiring harness and tool receiver under a no-charge warranty. It doesn't matter how old it is, but it must be listed in the serial number listing as one of the defective machines. It is possible that the switch just failed, as any switch can, and that your machine is not one of the affected models of the early switch, which means that they would charge for the repair work. You can go to www.hoover.com and check the serial number to see if your's is one of the defective ones. Other wise, you can buy a switch and install it yourself or have a repair shop do it.
As far as the toy part, your flat rubber belt will need to be replaced because, even though it looks fine, it will have sustained damage from the toy part jamming the brush roll. This belt should be change yearly anyway.
