Question about Kenmore 34612 Bagged Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

We have a Kenmore Progressive Model 116 Upright bagged vacuum with Hepa filter. It's at least a couple years old. For quite some time now when ever we use the vacuum the vacuum motor will shut off nafter about 5 min. of use. We then need to let it sit for awhile and then we can run it again for another 5 min. The bag has been change. Any one have any ideas how to fix this?

I suspect that you have a restriction. The motor sounds like the thermal break is stopping the motor before damage, due to heat.
You must witness that the entire suction and discharge side are clear. This is not always very easy, but necessary. I bet that you find something blocking somewhere...

Why is there no air blowing into the dust bag ?


Hi, it's Allie from Crucial Vacuum!

There are a few potential solutions you should try. Start by checking your unit's roller and clear it of any tangled hair strands or debris that my be blocking the airway. Follow by checking your unit's internal airway for any blockages.

If the unit's suction is still not normal, the problem could be related to your filter. Filters should be washed frequently after every 1 or 2 uses or at least once a month, and replaced every 3 to 6 months for optimal performance.

Check your unit's exhaust HEPA filter and replace if needed.

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

I would suggest checking the hoses for clogs. Especially the hose right after the carpet brushes. Don't forget to clean off your brush. Hope this helps.

Kenmore Progressive Canister w/Hepa Filter


May have a problem with the motor protector or the motor itself. The motor thermo protector will shut the motor off if it senses it getting hot. So it could be bad.

Did you replace the hepa filter with a new one? Those filters may not look bad, but after a period of time and use, air is restricted thru them. They should be changed at least once per year.
