Model 116 hose clog?
Posted by rfrazelle on Jun 23, 2008
My old canister model 116 followed with numbers 2839580 marked Kenmore 3.9 with power-mate, worked fine until the bag got overly full. I have changed the bag, cleaned the filter, and removed a nasty hair/fur/dust clog :-p from the lower metal tube of the power mate. It now has very weak suction and won't pick up anything. I suspect a clog in the grey plastic flexible tubing attached to the canister but cannot get it apart. Advice?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Kenmore 22313 Bagged Canister Vacuum. The best way to find a clog in an electric hose is to use a steel ball or a large marble to place inside the hose and to let it so threw as far as it can to determine where the hose clog is. Once you have determined where the hose clog is then you can use a small end of a broom handle of take an old wire coat hanger and place a hook on the end and try to pull the clog out of the electric hose – the electric hose is very expensive so try not to damage the hose in any way, shape or form. Or another way is that id you have another canister vacuum you can try to pull the clog apart by using two vacuums turned on and running. If you are successful then run the round marble or steel ball thru the hose again and the clog should be cleared.

SOURCE: Smoke coming out of my Kenmore Canister Vacuum Model 22550300C

Sounds like a motor err. Could be repaired by a professional but it never be as good as a new one. Also they you might not find anyone to repair it because the replacement motor might cost more than a new vacuum /considering it's age the motor will be hard to find and that makes it more expensive to repair./

I suggest you to buy a new vacuum.

Have you checked the belt. If the brush is not turning,the brush is not sweeping.

SOURCE: 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

Filter cleaning


The fact is that the "bagless bandwagon" is powered by some excellent marketing that conceals what is often poor technology. In your case, the filter blocks because it's doing the job that a bag would do in a bagged machine (catching the dust), and then the machine overheats because the flow of cooling air to the motor is restricted. The only solution (for this machine) is to keep buying new filters - the only permanent solution is to buy a different vacuum cleaner. And my advice is to buy one with a bag!

remove all the filters and clean themon the bottom you have what is called an intake hose.you will see it as it comes up from the bottom and up on the backside.it connects to a fitting take the screw out and pull the hose away from the back.take a coat hanger and bend the end so its round then work it down through the intake hose,you should be able to push the clog out through the bottom

Cleaning my bagless vacuum


Hi Anne,
It does not say to get the filter wet but;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;; I have had mine for 2 years. When I do a thourgh cleaning of the filter. I actually fill the inside of the filter up with water then hose the outside and let air dry. Another great thing to do is always have 2 filters. Let the one dry out and pop in a new one.

Good luck...
I have only had 2 filters.. and they clean out great with water..

Kenmore Progressive 36932 Upright Vacuum


It's located inside the vacuum kind of behind the where the dirt is collected. You can open and clean but this is probably not necessary. You probably vacuum very fine dust that is hard to remove from the system.

Try replacing or cleaning all filters and letting the vaccum run for a few minutes without moving. Agitator off of course.

Kenmore Bagless Issue


after cleaning the filter,replace the bag.But this time before you close the lid,make sure you remove the hose.after the lid is closed then put the hose back on.

leaving the hose connected to the lid after closing will create a gap between the bag holder and the bag.so just remove the hose first before changing the bag
