Question about Kenmore 34923 / 34925 Progressive Bagged Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Vaccum has no suction

My vaccum sucked up a ribbon while vaccuming. i stopped the vaccum and pulled the ribbon out. when i restarted the vaccum it smelled like it was burning and the brush on the bottom was not spinning. also, there was no suction so it was not cleaning.

The Vacuum is not sucking anything up. The suction seems weak. Hot air is coming out of the filter, but nothing is being sucked up. I have taken the hose out to convert it to the attachment mode and still get nothing being sucked up.

    My bag got full, so I replaced it, but now I essentially have no suction. I know that I have to clean the suction hose, which I did successfully once when I had access to the owner's manual. But I lost that manual, and now I can't figure out how to do it. Anyone have the manual and can tell me what to do?

Here is what we did to fix the problem of our vacuum having no suction.
We unscrewed the three screws on the back and took the hose off of the vacuum.  Then we took the hose outside and put the water hose through the vacuum hose and turned on the water.  After about 30 second the water pushed through a dust bunny the size of a fist and a marker.  Basically, the vacuum did not have suction because the hose was clogged with dust, etc.  After reassembling the vacuum, it worked just fine.

Why is my wet dry vaccum blowing and not sucking?


The clog or the bag or canister is full. Clean or replace filters.
First of all, make sure you put the hose on the suction port. If it's blowing where it should be sucking, the polarity of the motor is backward; the wires are hooked up wrong.

It isn't sucking up things like it use to. Where the Hepa filter is it is blowing out to much air. I need it to blow less and **** more.


Not knowing the model number of your vaccum a lot of problems stem from a clogged or partially clogged suction hose. If your model has a suction hose remove it completely from the back of the vaccum at both ends. Hold it out staraight and look for a clog. Pine needles, hair, paper, small sticks, etc. Once cleaned that should do it. Let me know, OK?
Good luck and thanks for your question and I hope my suggestions help. burdfrenzy

I bought it in may , I can honestly say , it is THE worst vaccum


There are several filters on bag-less vacuums that need to be cleaned. Dig out your owners manual or open the one below. See section 3 for filters and maintenance. If you are vacuuming a house bigger than about 1500 square feet, you should be cleaning the filters every other use. Personally, after using a bagless for a couple of months, I went back to my bagged vacuum.

Extreme vaccum has no suction.


Make sure you put the dirt cone back in the bucket to create the tight seal. You will have no suction without the dirt cone.

Vaccum has no suction


Need a new belt -- you might have suction but you need the brush to spin (hard to help without make or model, upright or canister)
