Re: I don't have any suction
Finish cleaning, through the whole air path
usually, by the time that a large clog has built up in the narrow neck behind the brushes,
that is easy to find when the cover plate is removed,
some has also got into the fan impeller,
not so easy to see
and restricts suction
the fan housing is held on the front of the fan & motor with clips, it disassembles easily and the lint and such can be flicked out of the impeller
then the exhaust of the motor to the bag can be likewise cleaned

Like everyone else (!) your lint filter is probably clogged. It is located on the top clear palstic section (the one with the dial to switch from tool to floor use) and is on the underside. It is a small (1 inch square) red plastic filter with a little door on it. Flip the door open and you will probably find it is clogged with hair, carpet fibre., etc.. Clean it out and you should have suction again.
I had these same issues. It came down to my husband beating the **** out of it several times. He'd take the canister apart, pound it on the ground, use a hair dryer to blow out as much as we could, a hanger down the top to pull out any hair we could grab. Then I'd use it -- it definitely loosened up some stuff. He'd pounded on it again and more stuff came loose. Don't know if it's fixed, but it's got it's suction back. Now I have have hose suction issues.
http://geeksquad.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?prdid=109459&thid=699656 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? RJ 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. http://www.sears.com/Customer Service1-800-4-MY-HOME1-800-469-4663 Thanks, Don the Vac Man Go Ahead.

Is there suction at the end of the hose, if not then the blockage is in the hose, unhook the hose and dig out the debris, if hose isn't blocked, then clean out the filters, if they get clogged, then air can;t flow thru them and you won't have suction. If you have suction at the end of the hose, then it is clogged down in the nozzle asm. there is an inlet by the brush roll and it comes up to where the hose plugs into. Clean the clog out.
