Take the broken part to a Panasonic servicer, alot of Sears Vacuums are made by Panasonic and they may have the part you need. Supply me with the model number and the sears part number, I would like to see what part you are talking about.,

I have a Kenmore "Intuition"


I had a different vacuum that did this. I took all manner of things apart looking for blockages and the like .I found that by having the vacuum handle in the full upright position shuts off the suction to this area and doesn't power the brush BY DESIGN. I think this is to get more suction to the hose.

Everything seems to be working fine except it has no suction. I changed the bag and filter, but still nothing.


Probaly a clogged suction tube, unplug the vacuum first then tilt the vacuum upside down and see if you can see a clog .On the back side of the brush it will be kinda funnel shaped and that leads to your suction tube . That is the most common place for a clog.

It wont pick up with a new bag in and it seems to **** back in


Check if there is something stuck in the the suction tube, telescopic wand or in any of the parts involved. I had the same problem due to a number of chocolate wrappers stuck in the wand. I almost went and bought another one, luckily i had the sense to ask the salesman at sears the same question and he put me on the right path. The suction tube and wand are detachable from the unit, so you should be able to unplug the parts and check. This is the same solution if you motor is running fine but you have lost suction and\or bag shows full when it is not. Hope i am saving someone some money by stating the obvious here, just the way the sears salesman helped me.

Which new model replaces this model #11622612200


Ron, Kenmore assigns model numbers pretty much sequentially as they receive new inventory. There is no cross reference anywhere in the industry for their product except in their catalog. If you want to compare features you must do it that way to find a similar vac. If you are very luck you may find an experience Sales rep at Sears.
If this is a Kenmore canister , as they age the hose and wheels and wand connections break down. For a better designed or improved vac, look at a professional vac shop and look at all the spots which broke down on your old one. If there are feateures you like make note of them too and you should find similar features on a pro brand or at Sears.
One more thing, don't buy a new vac based on amperage. Amperage is consumption of power NOT output but its a big deal to advertise that way. it's only a numbers game. A 12 AMP vac motor with its suction fans removed is still a 12 amp motor, it just has no suction. Anyone who tries to sell you a vac based on amperage does not know there business. Best of luck. For a lighter easier running vac,better design look at Sebo , Miele, etc, as well. The Europeans are far ahead in design and filtration and durability

Dyson DC 18 Model won't stand upright on it's own


If it won't pop back into the cradle that holds it in standing position, take off the entire hose and check for long items such as pens and pencils.

My vacuum will not pick up even fuzz on the carpet


If the suction is strong through the hose and its still not picking up, then something is definately clogged despite the strong suction and rolle brush. Check all inspection tubes including the main dirt channel behind the roller brush. You may find something that keeps getting in the way when dirt or hair is trying to bypass through.

Kenmore progressive upright canister vacuum


I had the same problem and so my husband took our vacuum apart. I cleaned what I could and discovered that there is a foam filter that sits below a dark gray cover immediately beneath the bag (on the floor of the inside of the vacuum). This is different from the HEPA filter. I cleaned this off (ours had a lot of dog hair on it) and placed it back in the slot. The vacuum is not making the noise anymore and the suction is even improved. I had not noticed the suction had deteriorated as the vacuum still worked well in my opinion. I hope that this helps and that you have the same problem. It was very easy to fix. I believe the noise was due to the impairment to the suction. Good Luck!
