Having problems with your Kenmore 22612 Bagged Canister Vacuum ?

Power nozzle shuts on and off - Kenmore 22612 Bagged Canister Vacuum


Answers :

(2 years later) in my case the problem was in the "wand". There is a 'female' (not sexist - this is what it is called) plug on the outlet side of the "wand" (handle). The "tube' that attaches between the handle and the "power head" (the thing that houses the brush that beats on the carpet) plugs into this (at the handle). One of the cheap plastic parts in the handle broke and allowed the plug (in the handle) to slide back when the 'power head' as pushed forward. This broke the connection between the handle/tube and the 'beater bar' /'power head' ( thing that spins on the carpet) - so the 'beater bar' quit, well, beating - the light on the went out also.
Solution: insert a piece of PLASTIC (not metal or any other 'conducting material' between the 'plug' and the 'tube' - apply the guy's universal fixer (duck tape) to the piece of plastic and vacuum on!
Note: be really careful prying the parts of the handle apart. There is a REALLY CHEAP" plastic clip holding the bottom of the handle to the hose (which carries the power). Break this & you're outta luck (unless - {self censored - break it - buy a new wand as suggested above}).
HI There,\015\012 \015\012When a Kenmore power nozzle cuts on and off, this usually indicates that your electrical hose has gone bad and has a short circuit somewhere.\015\012 \015\012You can try and troubleshoot the hose to find out where the short is by trying to determine what position the hose is in when it cuts on and off, and try to isolate the short circuit by spinning the hose on both the end that plugs into the canister, as well as the end that plugs into the wand. Sometimes the short is in the wands, or even the swivel neck assembly on the power nozzle where the wands connect.\015\012 \015\012I would say 9 times out of 10 though on Kenmore canisters, the problem is in the hose. \015\012 \015\012Kenmore is actually manufactured by Panasonic, and the two brands use a lot of the same identical parts, including the electrical hose (most cases).\015\012 \015\012If your Kenmore has a two position switch, with a setting for floors and carpets, then here's a link to the corresponding Panasonic hose that you can buy. The Panasonic hoses are a little more expensive then Kenmore, but the huge benefit is that they come 100% completely assembled, where as the Kenmore hose has to be assembled (which is extremely difficult even for me to do).\015\012Panasonic 3 Wire Electrical Suction Hose To Fit Kenmore Canisters\015\012 \015\012On just a handful of Kenmore models, an additional modification has to be done with the internal switch. Kenmore must have had the hose modified so you'd have to buy the genuine Kenmore part, but luckily simply switching two wires on the switch will allow the Panasonic hose to work. Try just plugging in the hose into the vacuum first, and if it still doesn't work properly, then you can modify the switch. \015\012 \015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012If you find that the short is in the wand or swivel neck, just use the comment field on this repair page and let me know, I'll be happy to follow up and walk you through either of these repairs as well. If this was helpful to you, please be so kind and rate the repair, or leave some feedback for me. This is greatly appreciated.\015\012 \015\012Chris Jones\015\012GoVacuum.com

I have a Kenmore Elegance Vacuum with Dirt Sensor, Model # 116.30750400C, Serial number M41901532. When vacuuming the carpet the power head will work for 3-6 mins then automatically shut off, power is still there and lights work but the power head motor turns off and the suction stops. I will turn it off and on, check the outlet, flick the on off buttons...nothing. I will turn it off for a couple minutes and it turns back on and runs like normal.

I had the vacuum cleaner question about the canister and the wand/powerhead... the Kenmore Progressive Vacuum canister model 116.25812 and the canister not powering off without unplugging the vacuum. The solution I received that they both run on their own switch so it is normal makes sense. However, is there a power switch on the canister anywhere? The only way for the canister to be turned off is by unplugging it. Any ideas? One would think there would be a switch. I am new to fixya and hope

I have a Kenmore central vacuum cleaner model number c107 34601. We have emptied the bucket and shaken the filter out to clean it. There is a filter that is filthy so we shook it out into a bag but the cleaner still seems to not have great suction. I notice there is a similar cap to the outlets I plug the central vac hose into on the unit itself that doesn't power the nozzle when used. 1 - what is this for? 2 - Should I somehow remove the entire filter and if so - can you tell me step by step ho

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?

Overheated vacuum After I finished vacuuming the library last night I changed the bag and shook out both filters and vacuum would not restart.

The carpet is long shag from the 70's Did it just over heat? Thanks Shauna


It normally won't over heat unless the bag is too full, the filters are clogged, or you have have a clog in the hose or down by the brush roll, the inlet may be clogged.
