Question about Kenmore Progressive 35922 Bagged Upright Vacuum

Open Question

Kenmore 116.35923 upright vacuum cleaner: I have changed the dust bag and dirt sensor optic cells, cleaned the motor safety filter, and checked for clogs. However, the dirt sensor lights always indicate maximum power, even when manually changed to a lesser power. Nor does the InteliClean seems to work (always stays at maximum. What else can I do to fix the problem?

SOURCE: blows dust and dirt out of brush area

Did you make sure to cut all the strings, hair, etc. out of the brush attachment on the bottom? Look in the corners too to make sure none has gotten stuck on the sides that needs to be cut out.

SOURCE: Bissell Model 3593-2 Upright purchased 3 years ago not drawing up dirt as it use to

Check where there is suction...is there good suction at the hose...at the back of the vacuum. Knowing where there is good suction will help you know where there might be a clog or any resistance. Bissell also has a fairly good customer support line...I believe the phone number might be on the vaccuum possibly in the back.

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.

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.

Best Upright Vacuum You Can Buy!!


Paying a high price for a vacuum does not translate into best performance. My daughter purchased a Dyson (over $700.00) and after considerable goading, she accepted the challenge I had posed. Clean her carpet with her Dyson until she was satisfied that it was clean and then use my Kenmore SensorClean (no longer available by that name and over 10 years old) over the same area and see the results for herself. After the test, she stated she could feel the difference on her bare feet and immediately purchased the Kenmore Elite Bagged Upright Vacuum Cleaner ($279.00). The Dyson is now collecting dust (on the outside). With a build-in fiber-optic dirt sensor, you don't have to guess when the carpet is clean, the vacuum lets you know via the lights. Its suction power is second to none, the extra long cord lets you cover more area without having to change outlets and the direct-drive means no belts. You have 30 days on any purchase to return it, so try it for yourself, you may soon be purchasing a new vacuum that is worth every penny.

My Riccar Upright leave lines of debris when I use it. Can you help?


Inspect the filter.Open the secondary filter on the base of the vacuum to ensure that dirt and debris have not collected on the filter, as this will limit motor performance. Remove the filter from the dust compartment and rinse with water to clean. Allow it to dry completely and return to the dust compartment.--------
Also check if dust bag is got over full and that is causing the problem.Open the dust compartment, take the old dust bag out of the bag holder and discard. Open the end of a new dust bag and attach to the dust bag holder. Close the dust compartment and tighten the dust cover.Also check properly that dust compartment is not got loose. Open cleaning attachment and check the hoses and nozzles on the frequently to ensure that they are free of dirt, obstruction or hair.Also inspect the brushes, if there is already dirt got stuck in the brushes and that is causing the problem.Clean the brushed.---------- This will help, to confirm where the problem is and to resolve the dirt /debris issue.----- Thanks.Helpmech.

Unbeknownst to me, someone took the bag out of my Kenmore Progressive vacuum and failed to replace it. I have been vacuuming without a bag for months, and today the vacuum stopped sucking. When I opened...


Sounds like you need to buy a new motor. All that grit and dust will ruin a motor and I'm surprised it lasted as long as it did.
This is where a vacuum that won't run without a bag would have been nice. (Aerus for one)

Bag full or clog light comes on but new bag and no blockage... Sebo x4 upright cleaner


Have you checked the filters to see if they are blocked and need cleaning/replacing. Failing that it could be the sensor at fault.

Kenmore upright vac model 33922 - good suction but developed loud whining noise after accidentally vacuuming room without bag. Added bag and changed both filters. Still makes noise. How can I stop noise?


The bag is the first stage in your filtration. Most times what you did will draw fine dust right through the filters and into the motor itself, affecting the bearings and clogging the motor fans, throwing them off balance.
The fact that there is a new noise would seem to indicate bearing problems which will only worsen unless the vac motor is dismantled, fans cleaned and bearings either replaced or cleaned and repacked.

Sensor


There is an optical sensor inside the port where you attach your vacuum bag. Take the bag off and take a clean soft cloth and wipe inside the port to remove dirt from the sensor. Don't wet it! Do this every time you change your bag and you shouldn't have a problem.

Upright Vacuum Cleaner Lost Suction


If you had the dryer sheet under the intake filter for any length of time you risk burning out the motor . If
it smells like burning hair and plastic then the motor is toast. Also check the hose and dust passage, but I fear that it is the motor.
Sorry...

Dust blowing out of my vaccuum cleaner


Usually when dust is blowing out it is caused by a clog, either the hose, or the dirt inlet down by the brush roll is clogged. Check them and clean them out and you should be ok.
