Having problems with your Kenmore 23612 Progressive PowerMate Bagged Canister Vacuum ?
Vacuum doesn't ****
\015 I bought this at a yard sale today and owner told me it was quirky. Motor sounds fine. Light suction. I did put another style bag but was snuggly placed. It seems to have a replacement plug (home repair type). There doesn't seem to be a clog in hose or unit.\015
Assuming the unit (motor) runs ok and since it used, you may need to disassemble it and check the suction right at the motor. Sometimes there is a filter screen in front of it that can plug. The motor impeller could be partially obstructed or dirty, reducing the vacuum force. The bag should be the correct one for the unit or suction can be lost if it doesn't fit correctly.

On/off switch we have two of these vacuums at work, and both of there on/off switches dont work too well. its hard to explain, but when u normally turn it on or off theres a little resistance in the switch and you hear a click, with both of ours the switch moves freely back and forth from on to off, no resisntace, no click, and the machine doesnt stay on, or off for that matter. the switch just moves back and forth.
