I use a pool cue ,but a broom handle or any handle will do or just a nice straight stick about 3 or 4 ft. long.

Disconnecting the hose and holding the opposite end to the intake can sometimes **** the clog back they way it came more easily than trying to push it all the way through the other way.

If you access to an air compressor blow the hose out, a high powered nozzel on a garden hose to force out debri, or if you have pets that shed groom them more often

sounds like you have a clog in your hose, full bag, or dirty filters. take the bag door off and feel inside at the bottom for suction or air movement. if you have suction there chances are its a clog in the hose. You can use a coat hanger or something similar to reach into the hose just be careful not to puncture the hose. First just try turning the unit on and stretching the hose as far as you can. try to feel for a clog and try to free it with the hose stretched.

I have kenmore progressive and it is clogs is there a way to unclog it


The easiest way we unclog this machine is to take another canister vacuum and use its' hose to put on the hose of your machine then switch it on and **** the clog out of your machine. Works great.

No suction


If the motor is running and is not full of dirt, and the hose is not plugged, the canister must be cracked or open somehow.

KENMORE pROGRESSIVE WITH DIRECT DRIVE SUCKING NOISE


I had the exact same problem. The port is a relief valve to prevent the motor from burning out if the hose/bag are clogged. Check the main hose from end to end after removing the 3 screws that hold it to the body of the vacuum near the handle. If that's clear then it's almost certainly clogged in the short tube that goes from the beater bar housing to the hose extension (where the flex tube attaches). There are two ways of going about this.

Option 2
(the way I did it) -- Lock the base on the upright position and turn the unit over. Unscrew the 12 or so screws in the black base. You'll need to depress the release pedal when removing the screw at the end of the pedal. Once you have all of the screws removed carefully wiggle the base loose. You do not need to remove it completely to access the short flex tube. Clean it out and replace everything in the opposite order from how you removed it.

Option 1 (what I would do next time) -- Cut a wire coat hanger and make a small 1/2" hook at the end. Bend the straight section into about a 4" radius arc leaving plenty to handle at the end opposite the hook. Carefully snake the hanger down the tube and pull out the giant clump of hair and dirt that's clogging the vacuum.

cheers -- eric

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.

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.
