Go to sears.com, click on the parts link, enter your complete model number, then you can click on the links for your vac and you can figure out what it takes, and you can order thru there also.

Do check and make sure you've removed all screws as some are recessed then look at the front of sweeper to see if there are what I would call clips/hinges holding the bottom plate on gently seperate plat e from head Hope this helps

I have a Sears Kenmore canister sweeper with the power mate, but it no longer has sufficient suction to pick up dirt. I took the machine apart and cleaned it, but it is still not sucking, does this model...


When cleaning the machine, did you do a good job of cleaning the beater brush and making sure it turned freely in the holders on each end? Perhaps a bit of WD40? Also, a new set of belts might help a bit.

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!

Sweeper stops running, when I jiggle the electric cord


The wiggle test is very popular and widely used. If you can gently wiggle the area that is in question and it can cause a change. Then yes, it is an electrical issue (loose wire or connection) but if not, and you have to be aggressive with the unit to get a change. Then it could be a bad motor.

SCUNCI RECHARGEABLE CORDLESS SWEEPER


I bought the rechargable sweeper and it was missing a part. The 800# (866-917-6600) is defunct and Conair, who bought Scunci out, said the sweeper division had been out of business for a while now...guess we're all stuck!

Kenmore progressive canister Sweeper


I figured it out ..by pushing the lever down and pry a screw driver into three different spots on the top, to release the rewind bar. Looks like three little j hooks hold it down. It took a flashlight and night time for me to see it.

No power to head of Kenmore Progressive canister vac


The extension wands are defective and have trouble with their plug connectors on each end. The power head has a reset button on top right but no lights mean no power which means the wand isn't connecting the power to anything.

Sears has a new replacement -- too bad it isn't recalled so you could get it for free ($106.59 + tax + shipping). 2nd sweeper -- same problem.

1st sweeper: I just took needlenose pliers and pulled connectors out a little further (Too bad I can't seem to make the 2nd sweeper work with this easily. It might be one of the connectors or the wiring harness inbetween with a break.) Can't buy the wiring harness for this or connectors, just the wand.

If anyone has a working wand you want to sell me email me at hiwhatsnew@hotmail.com. Thanks!
