Kenmore canister vacuum will not turn on

\015 I have a kenmore canister vacuum model #116.23512302 this will not power on. In the manual the troubleshooting for this is to change the hepa filter and the bag chamber filter. I did both and it still does not power on. This vacuum is seven years old and I never changed the filters. Could I have damaged it by not changing them for so long?\015

Answers :

Check the electrical component
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

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

Hi. On some models, one switch controls all of the power. Your issue, which is no working switch is almost certainly a blown triac on the circuit boar ... Vacuums

I have a Kenmore canister vacuum - model 25614506. Some time ago, I was not able to turn the vacuum off with the on/off switch, but could still use the vacuum. Turned if off/on by pulling the plug.

Kenmore 21875 One day it's working fine. Next day, it won't turn on. When I attach the hose to another vacuum cleaner, it runs. Is there a reset button on the canister? Could it be the receptacle is bad? My Kenmore Progressive won't turn on today either -but was fine last week. I cleaned the filters checked for blocked air, tried a different outlet and no luck. I'll check the pins on the connections and see if one of them is not matching up or appears worn.

Hello, I have a Kenmore Progressive Canister Vacuum 116.20912006. It won't turn on. On the hose assembly, the end where the hose swivel is, there are 4 metal pins that plug into the canister. One of the pins looks like it broke off. There are only three pins remaining. I assume there should be four pins as there are four holes. Is this the problem and is it fixable? The vacuum is from 2002 so I am not sure a replacement part is even available and at what price. Thank you. Susan susan.eng@

Hi Susan, if the pin has broken off you can do one of two things, first, would be to find a local vacuum repair shop and take it there for them to look at. they may be able to look at the hose and fix it for you pretty cheaply. what ... Kenmore Progressive 20912 Bagged Canister Vacuum

I have a Kenmore Progressive Upright Vacuum - Purple, and it worked just fine. I emptied the canister (like always) and put it back in place. I turned on the vacuum to it immediately shutting down (motor) and only the lights come on. There is no movement/noise/suction at all! Any suggestions? I have tried everything. I have no idea why it did this.

Make sure that something didn't fall into the fan assembly in the base when the canister was removed. The motor should have an overload reset switch. Try moving the motor manually (power plug out) to make sure that it isn't bound up. ... Kenmore Progressive Bagless Upright with Inteli-Clean SystemVacuum

When we turn on the vacuum, the canister falls open. The clips holding the canister in place do not seem to hold the canister tightly which I'm sure that it did in the past. The clips do not look bent, but every time we turn on the vacuum the intense pressure blows the canister open only remaining attached the the rest of the vacuum by one clip

Check filter and make sure it is kept clean at regular intervals. Possibly worn out clip retainers on cannister side due to excessive pressure build up. Do not force closure unless pressure is back to normal. May crack cannister or damage unit beyond ... Hayden Industries SuperVac 6000 Central System Vacuum
