Question about Kenmore 25512/ 25513 Progressive Canister Vacuum

I think my son used my vaccuum on his wet Jeep carpets. Now it stinks and is spitting stuff out instead of picking stuff up. Will it ever work again or did he destroy it?

I think the pump is clogged and the vacuum inlet filter has also been clogged up with excess intake of dirt.
You will need to remove both the sectiosn fully to clean out without using the vacuum cleane as it will further damage the unit.
All these machines have a limitation to the dirt and cannot be expected to go on with high level of dirt. So the maintenance must be carried over for the dirt accumulation fo the machine to be back to work efficiently.

It is picks stuff up from my carpet put then it spits it back on the carpet after a few more passes; bag is not full so that is not the problem


The belt that turns the brush bar is probably stretched and worn. Once this happens, you will lose suction. When they get worn they stretch, thus causing it to spin on the bar itself. Just simply replace the belt with a new one that fits your machine.

Good Luck!

My son spilled mica all over my carpet. To clean it I used my bissel vaccuum. Now I have orange mica in the removable filter area as well as up inside the part that spins. I need to clean it out, but don't...


Load it into the trunk of your car, take it to a gas station and use the tire inflater hose to blow all the **** out of it. May have to get a tire stem in order to use it as a blower.

My son used it to vacuum up needles from Xmas tree. It is now spitting out dust and not picking up. I changed the bag but does not help


I could not find the manual for the vacuum. I went to the Oreck site and found an online manual for my machine. I was able to take the hose apart and clean out the blockage. Also when I turned the base upside down and rotated the roller, I was able to clean that out too.

Dry/Wet vac is blowing instead of vaccuum


Check to see if the plastic ball is stuck . There should be a ball under the motor , make sure it moves freely. Make sure your vacum lines are not plugged . Best of luck Ed.

Vacum will not pick up


Due to the way carpets are made - new carpets sometimes have a lot of loose fiber. This is NORMAL and it may take 3-5 times to vacuum the carpet till it goes back to normal. Spitting out fuzz balls is a bit weird. Make sure you have the belt installed right - see video on www.goodvac.com. but the fact that belts keep breaking I am assuming that you have them installed right. Give it a few more belts and if the problem presists - let me know.

Suction problem


The valve on the bottom of the water bucket is not being pushed up enough to allow the vaccuum to go through. Perhaps a part is missing but I used a small ball bearing and a car vaccuum cap to build it up and now our works but it is still a piece of ****. I hope this helps

Today lemonaide is made of artificial flavors and furnature polish is made of real lemons.
Believe me that alot of stuff now is **** and you will find that out. I have to fix most stuff that comes right out of the box before we can use it. If I cannot I take the darn thing back. Welcome to the real world of the industry standards that have no ethics anymore.

Vacuum cleaner safety popped


I had same exact problem. It stopped sucking, just spitting out trash back. You need to clean all pipes, all of them. Then take canister apart and clean and wash top filter. It works like new now again
