You did not give the complete model number, but you can go to sears.com, click on parts and put in you model number. You will get links to click on, click on the cannister one and you get a picture breakdown and a parts list, you can also order after choosing the part you need.

I have a kenmore vacuum, Series 116-23613300. four years old. It is emitting a high pitch squeel. I have checked and the hose is not clogged, I have put in a new bag and I have washed the foam filter. ...


If the squeal is coming from the canister portion of the machine, then you most likely have a fairly serious motor/fan problem. There are no moving parts on that machine other than the fan/motor assembly in the canister.

A local service center could confirm that. You can try to get a free quote if they offer such a service. Many may charge a fee even for diagnostic work.

If the noise is coming from the power-head, then there are multiple possibilities ranging from bad brushroller bearings to failing power-head motor.

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

Model 116 Kenmore vacuum cleaner. 20+ years old,


Greetings,

I believe that this is probably a Kenmore Canister vacuum cleaner, but I can't be positive. The model number 116 is just the first part, and all Sears vacuum cleaners start with model 116. There is a . after the 116 that will identify the vacuum. If you'd like me to be more model specific, or if this is an upright vacuum, please just request a clarification and I can take pictures even for you.

If this is a canister style vacuum, then you'll need to remove the foot pedal that rewinds the cord reel. There are 2 or 3 (depending on which model you have) hidden screws underneath of this pedal. You may simply pry off the pedal using a flat head screw driver. Also when you have the bag door open, you may just pull forward while it's open, and this will remove the bag door housing. There should be two screws in the front of the motor housing that need to be removed as well.

My guess from the age of the vacuum that's probably the motor that's gone. If this is the case, you probably can still get a motor if you'd like to just replace the motor inside, rather then buying a new vacuum. Typical Sears Kenmore canister motors sell for 79-120 dollars.

Again, I'd be happy to try and help you further, I will just need the entire model number after the 116. to know which vacuum you have.

Owners manual for kenmore power-mate # 116


Greetings from GoVacuum,

I wasn't able to find the manual for the Kenmore model, however I did find the instruction manual for the corresponding Panasonic canister vacuum cleaner. Your particular Kenmore model is actually made by Panasonic for Sears, and then Sears puts the Kenmore name on the vacuum cleaner. They are identical internally, and have the same parts and components, besides the filter that is behind the bag. Sears makes Panasonic put a specially designed filter in the Kenmore's so that the customer has to go back and purchase that filter from Sears.

To download the instruction manual, please visit the link below;

You can also find a parts schematic of the power head below if you need to purchase parts;

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.
