There are 3 visible screws there in the handle and one not so visible.

start by removing the 3 visible screws.
Take a flat screwdriver and pry off the colored portion of the handle that would contain the switch.
There is one more screw in the handle just in front of the switch, remove that one.

This is where it gets tricky.

under the handle between the handle and the hose, is a little square shaped pry area that is locked. Use the same flat screwdriver to get at that and release it. The rest of the handle should come apart pretty easy now.

Good luck.

How do I take the handle apart on my Kenmore Progressive vacuum model 116.21614011? I removed the screws but it won't come apart.


There are catches that snap the handle together. It's hard to separate the handle without breaking the catches. Replacement may be required

Sock stuck in hose midway. Unable to getit out with wire or brrom handle. Is there a way to take hose apart at either end.


If the sock is midway, taking either or both ends apart won't help. Take it to a vacuum repair shop and ask them to try to unplug it. You may need to buy a new hose.

THe vacuum won't divert from hose to carpet


Turn the vacuum off, return the handle to upright locked position.

Then securely fit hose into the hose holder.

Then depress lever and engage handle into non-locked position, and turn on vacuum on "carpet"

There will always be some airflow through the hose, but when the hose is parked it creates more airflow to the carpet head

Loose electrical contact in extension wand


You have a loose connection at one of several possible locations.Inspect the contacts at the top and bottom of the wand .IF they are black or coppery or look melted, both pairs of contacts, male and female will need to be replaced.
Try to wiggle and twist the wand at top, then at bottom. If this does not reveal the short, work your way back down the hose towards the a vac itself, starting behind the hose handle.

Kenmore progressive canister bad connection from hose to canister


It could be, the female part of the connector is stretched open. You can usually insert something, like a dart, between the sleeve and the holder, to tighten it. If you paid with Pay Pal, see about getting your money back.

Won't work for carpet


You could have a bad switch in the handle on the hose, may also be that the female plug at the end of the handle has broken loose inside and has gotten pushed in to far for the male connector on the want to reach it and cannot make a good connection. The switch and wire hartness come together when you order it. If the plug broke loose, you can either glue it to the tube or replace the tube.

Vacuum is not sucking. It is just over a year old.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
It sounds like you have a clogged hose or a full bag, or dirty filter. The best way to check your electric hose id to run a marble or steel ball thru the hose and if it goes thru all the way then check the bag and filter, most times it is the vacuum hose. If it id the hose you can try to pull apart the clog from both ends using another central or canister vacuum. If not and the ball stops mid way thru the hose then you can use a broom handle with a round hook on the end so that it does not puncture the hose is any place and the round hook can loosen or break up your clog and then your suction will return, if you poke a hole in the vacuum hose there are repair kits that go on the outside of the hose that will slide over the hose and then you use a heat gun and shrink the hose repair kit down to size therefore plugging the leak. (Hose repair kit). So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
