Kenmore cannister vacuum tube - reattaching connectors

Any thoughts would be helpful...

I have replaced the connector that connects to the cannister and the tube. I was able to wire everything up and test, but now despite large efforts of pulling / pushing I cannot get the clips to click. Any ideas?

Thank you for any help!!!

    That was it - heated up the neck and the clips directly, and then squeezed the suckers together.

    Thank you very much!

Make sure that the two prongs that go over the hose are going in the correct slot in the cuff. If in the wrong one, the cuff won't snap into place. I have had to slam the end of the hose on the work bench while holding the cuff to push it all of the way on. Some I have heard warm up the cuff in hot water or a hair dryer to make it more pliable.

How do i reattach wires to motor from cord and lights

Black wire from the power cord goes onto the wire connection closest to where it comes into the back of the vacuum. There should be a black dot beside the wire connection on the motor. On the other side of the motor, there should be another black dot beside a wire connection and the two white wires will go there. The white wire coming from the lights usually has a double connection and it will go on first and then the white wire from the power cord will go onto the other side of the double connector. The black wire coming from the light usually will go to a wire connector right next to the white wires or just above it . Hope this helps!

I was lifting off the canister, and now there is a connector sticking up from the base. It looks like a phone jack connector. I can't reattach it. It's right in the center of the bottom of the cannister....

If the connector does not move when you gently push or pull it when you slide the canister back on the vacume it should go in place. If it is on a short piece of wire you have to gently fit it in to the hole on the other part of the vacume

You have to take off the top of the power nozzel that has the light lense. There are two pressure locks,one on each side. Use a screw driver to release. You will see the screws.Take the two screws out and on some models, there are two pressure locks on the back of the nozzel. Again use the screw driver to release. The top should come right off.Hope this helps.

You need to open the head by gently squeezing the light cover housing and lifting it off. There will be two screws underneath and once removed the lid will lift off and reveal the area where the pedal installs.

Won't work for carpet

You could have a bad switch in the handle on the hose, may also be that the female plug at the end of the handle has broken loose inside and has gotten pushed in to far for the male connector on the want to reach it and cannot make a good connection. The switch and wire hartness come together when you order it. If the plug broke loose, you can either glue it to the tube or replace the tube.

Did you replace the hepa filter with a new one? Those filters may not look bad, but after a period of time and use, air is restricted thru them. They should be changed at least once per year.

Kenmore Bagless Issue

after cleaning the filter,replace the bag.But this time before you close the lid,make sure you remove the hose.after the lid is closed then put the hose back on.

leaving the hose connected to the lid after closing will create a gap between the bag holder and the just remove the hose first before changing the bag
