Having problems with your Kenmore 25512/ 25513 Progressive Canister Vacuum ?

Agitator on kenmore 36622 seized up

\015 I've just had to replace the agitator on this kenmore model for the third time in 1 1/2 years. Even if it's kept relatively clean it seems to eventually stop working and seizes up. It cannot be fixed and has to be replaced at nearly $40. Is there a problem with this model? I didn't see it stay on the market for very long. I never had a problem with past Kenmore's.\015

Answers :

Kenmore actually doesn't make very many of their own products. Typically their vacuums are privately labeled by Panasonic. I don't want to get into trouble for saying something bad, so I'll just say I wouldn't consider Panasonic a best buy anymore.

\015\012Next time you're ready to purchase, you might take a look at Miele Canisters. They are a German family owned business, and they have hands down the best vacuums on the market and outstanding customer service. Or you may consider Riccar which is an American company that has an awesome reputation for quality and customer service. Just something to think about.

The agitator on my kenmore progressive vacuum won't keep going. It keeps stopping while vacuuming.


This sounds like the belt that drives the beater bar on the vacuum. The beater bar bearings and brushes could be plugged with debris and/or the belt is simply worn out and needs to be replaced. Unplug the vacuum, turn it over and look for clogging. ... Vacuums

Kenmore InteliClean 116.35923502 Two, I believe unrelated, problems. 1) The InteliClean sensor lights stay amber and red even when the machine is in the upright position and the suction line is disconnected from the cleaner head. 2) There is a lot of vibration and noise in the agitator roller housing. I picked a little hair out of the roller brushes but other than that they were clean. Thank you for any suggestion you might offer.


I had the same problem with the amber inteliclean light continually on. I found the problem to be in the plastic housing that connects the suction hose to the back of the upright section. You have to remove three screws and gently pull ... Kenmore Progressive Bagless Upright with Inteli-Clean SystemVacuum

My kenmore vacuum model 116.36933502. It has no suction. I have cleaned out every spot,taken off the back and still nothing. The motor runs but doesnt seem to be at full power.

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 Kenmore canister vacuum (model 11627515700) will not turn on. Although when I set it to CARPET the agitator does come on, however the vacuum still doesn't. Is it likely a motor or switch problem??

I've got a Kenmore canister vacuum, Progressive 236123, and there's a burning smell from the belt side of the head--smells a lot like hot rubber. I've cleaned the agitator and changed the belt, but I still get the smell. It's stronger when I'm using "carpet" mode than when I'm using "bare floor" mode. Any ideas what the problem is?
