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 up the front to replace the bag, tons of dirt and dust came pouring out. I thoroughly cleaned the vacuum, put in a new bag, but still no sucking power. Just dust coming from the rear vents where one of the filters is. Is the vacuum ruined, or is it a simple solution of buying a new filter?

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.\015\012This is where a vacuum that won't run without a bag would have been nice. (Aerus for one) ... Kenmore 31913 Progressive Direct Drive Bagged Upright Vacuum

I just bought a good Sears Kenmore Progressive 300 upright vacuum (116.38812891) today at a garage sale for five bucks. I left my relic Electrolux with the new owners of my former home during a recent relocation. In the interim I bought a Bissel 3750H which I do not care for, and borrowed a Eureka 7685 AU which performs somewhat better. I cleaned up the Kenmore, and though it seems to run well, noticed the drive belt is showing signs of degeneration. I would like to replace it, but was unable t

Hi, I have a Kenmore Whispertone canister vacuum that I purchased in 2007. The model # is 116.22271503C, which seems to confuse the parts people. I need to buy a new powerhead & a few months ago was given a price of $75, but now Sears Canada tells me the part # is 20 116KC5OXBZRZUO1 described as Power Mate Assembly for $192.99. I thought the Power Mate was the small powerhead for stairs, upholstery, etc. Have they located the wrong part for me, or is this really what it costs?? Thanks in advance

I have a Kenmore Destiny Plus vacuum, and it doesn't have suction anymore. I've come to the conclusion that the tubes, I guess you can call them that, are plugged. I'm trying to find the user manual/service manual to know how to open the vacuum up to unplug the tubing.

It's October now so this is probably too late to be useful for you but it might help someone: I had the same problem. I used a bright light to see that there was a clog up high in one of the plastic tubes on the side. Using an untwisted wire coat han ... Kenmore Vacuums

I have a Kenmore 116.36932 (upright-bagless vacuum) that the motor protector by-pass valve has opened. I've clean out the area between the agitator brush where the flexible extension hose starts. There was some blockage there. I checked the rest of the system (extenstion hose, back filter area, pipe area to canister and area to side filter. I took the 2 filters out and the by-pass valve is still open. Where else could there be a blockage that I can take apart to clean and put back together

My 8 yr old kenmore vacuum works well - however the hose has worn under the handle where there is a hole (resulting in decreased suction power). I'd like instructions on opening the handle and bypassing the worn piece of tubing rather than replacing it for $129. Some of the handle screws remove easily but the last one doesn't loosen easily.

Hi,Have you tried spraying the stubborn screw with WD40 and let it soaked for a while? Other than these screws holding the handle together, there would no other way of opening it up. Hope this be of initial help/idea. ... Kenmore Vacuums
