Question about Kenmore 31913 Progressive Direct Drive Bagged Upright Vacuum
Dear FixYa, the beater bar, light and self propel action all work intermittently on our 31913 direct drive Kenmore. The problem is not with the reset button nor a loose hose/switch issue. I believe this problem has been getting worse with time. It seems like it started on just the return/pull stroke but now the light, bar, etc will cut off and on even on the push stroke (the self propelled stroke). I took the beater bar apart to see if there was something wrapped up in the works and found some stuff but removing it did not help. Also pulled the brushes out too and they looked fine. What cuts the self propulsion off for the return stroke and what might cause the system to work in stutter steps (cutting on and off several times on each push pull)?
When you push the hose into the tube, there is an acuator that will push the switch so the beater bar will turn. That switch could be just dirty, dust gets in them and they won't always work, the acuator may need to be replaced. Either that or you have a bad wire connection somewhere in the noozle or where the wires just go into the noozle asm.
