Question about Kenmore 23613 Progressive PowerMate Bagged Canister Vacuum

1 Answer

On/off switch needs repair

I have a kenmore progressive bagless & the on/off switch just quit working. It isn't that old of a machine, maybe a year old. It makes a loud click when I slide the on/off bar back & forth. I can't figure how to get the front part of the handle off, without breaking it. If anyone has had the same problem & fixed it, I would appreciate hearing how.

You don't have to repair the switch. your vac may have a relay inside the canister which may be defective

I need to take apart my Kenmore Progressive Bagless Upright with Inteli-Clean System

What problem are you trying to fix? The is no belt so you don't need to remove the bottom plate. If you are trying to remove the main hose, remove 4 screws on the back and remove the plate. There are 2 more screws under that.

Well you could have a clog in the hose or the inlet down by the brush roll. other then that, if it s less then a year old, take it to Sears for repair, it would be under warranty.

Check down by the brush roll to see if the inlet is clogged. This type of problem usually means there is a clog. But you do have a year's warr. on this, if you can't figure it out, then take it a Sears repair shop.
