Question about Kenmore 22313 Bagged Canister Vacuum

1 Answer

Kenmore Progressive Canister w/Hepa Filter

We've had this vac for a couple of years now. It's just shuts down at will. We've checked the head for spinning, blockages, bags, hose, belts, filters, basically anything we could think of that would cause this. Sometimes it will work with no problems then other times it will shut off every couple of minutes. Takes all day to vacuum sometimes!

May have a problem with the motor protector or the motor itself. The motor thermo protector will shut the motor off if it senses it getting hot. So it could be bad.

How do I open the canister to replace my vac filter EF-1?


There should be a cover on the top of the unit that says HEPA filter. There should be a little finger groove there to grab the cover and pull it off. Sometimes you may need a screwdriver or butter knife to get it open. The filter will be under that cover.

Good Luck,
Mark

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

My canister kenmore progressive is not sucking and is sptitting carpet powder dust all over the place. could it be it needs a new hpa filter? if so where on the vacuum would it be located?


Remove the hose from the canister, and turn on the vacuum. Does it produce good air flow into the hose port?. If ok, remove the hose from the sweeper unit and plug the end into the canister. If ok, check the bottom of the sweeper head for plugging of the air passages and inspect the sweeper bar for accumulation of thread, hair, and string. If the first test produced no air flow, then open the canister and remove the bag--turn the vacuum on and check for air flow into the motor. If still nothing, then check the hepa filter which should be near the air output from the canister. Go to: searspartsdirect.com and enter the sears model number from the information plate. The machine's part drawings will appear and select the vacuum case drawing which should display the hepa filter location and also be able to order the filter from the web site. Hope this helps!

Kenmore progressive 360 vacuum cleaner has low suction


Check the tube that leads down to the brush head for clogging as well as any motor or HEPA filters. If that still shows nothing, take the cover off the brush head (like you're changing the belt) and look for obstructions in there. Usually, if you have low suction on the accessory hose, the problem is with a motor filter, HEPA filter, or a clog where the hose goes into the unit. If you have good suction on the accessory hose but none on the floor, it's usually in the brush head (clog or broken belt) Good luck

Shuts off after a minute or so and comes back on and shuts down in 20 seconds


Sounds like it is over heating do to a dirty filter. Or there is something blocking the air flow in the vacuum.

How to change filters on a Kenmore canister vacuum


Depending on age there may be one or two filters. A Hepa filter is an exhaust filter generally at the back end of the vac, sometimes at the back top.
For this style filter there will be a small grill with a release tab on it, simply pull the finger tab and the grill should pop off revealing the filter.
There is normally a bag chamber filter behind the dust bag as well. Open the bag chamber below the tool storage and remove the bag.There will be a soft filter sitting behind the bag on most models. If it is a sponge type it can be washed and reinstalled when dry, but if fabric it is disposable.Make sure you have replacement filters in hand before changing as some filters simply pop into a reusable frame, often a red frame. If the material slides out the frame is generally reusable, if glued in , it is likely disposable.
USE only the specified filter and chose the best quality multi ply filter bags for maximum vac performance and efficiency
