Having problems with your Kenmore 31912 Progressive Direct Drive Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

The red sensor light is stuck on red. I have cleaned the filters. What might be the problem?

Answers :

A common problem with this unit is that the sensor will clog up with dirt and debris and will give a false reading to you. my best advice is just to ignore the sensor light... mostly because your machine is running and it will not affect the performance of the machine. Next time you have the unit in for a service, let the repair person know and they should be able to clean it for you.

Good luck.

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.

We understand that your problem is: I currently own and use on a regular basis the Kenmore Progressive upright bagged vacuum. Model number 116.35923500. The headlight flickers and the intelliclean light stays red. Ive tried cleaning the intelliclean sensors, changed the bag, and cleaned off the agitator. Is this a power issue? Should I take it to the store? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

I have the IROBOT discovery that just got a new battery. IT ran great! As the battery was dying, I put it into the home base. The "brick" is green, the home base has two green lights and the on/off pulsates red. It never charges though. Eventually the red light stops pulsating. Customer service said to reset it, clean the metal, and nothing works! They told me to just buy another one. The problem is that I know it was working! Help!

Roomba Discovery Roomba is fully charged and cleaned with sensor wiped clean. When turned on it it sounds normal and commences to go, but it then acts like it is putting on the breaks, spins, tries to go and manages a short distance and breaks again, just not making any progress because it keeps breaking after a foot or so and turns and tries again.
