Having problems with your Kenmore 31913 Progressive Direct Drive Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

The foot pedal on my Kenmore 116-31912100 stays in down position like a spring is broken.


Answers :

The plastic tab on the foot pedal that acted as a return spring has broken off of the foot pedal. It's Macgyver time! For the not-so-mechanically inclined, this involves tape and rubberbands. For the somewhat mechanically inclined, a drill and small extension spring from the hardware store. For anyone freaked out just thinking about fixing the pedal themselves, $$$ for a new vacuum cleaner!
And it probably is. Access the part & replace.

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.

I am replacing a foot pedal on an upright Sharp vacuum cleaner-EC-TU2607. I have the broken foot pedal removed from vacuum cleaner proper but it is the removal of the broken pedal from its spring load that has me puzzled. I applied some pulling effort on the pin that holds the spring in place but there doesn't seem to be any give. Is that the correct approach or is there something else that one should be doing first to release some of the resistance by the pin or spring? Thanks!

I have a Kenmore vacuum cleaner model #116.34720. The problem I am having is that if you are rolling the vacuum around, the base will drop without pressing on the handle release pedal. This often results in a bunch of dirt being dumped back out. The manual doesn't show anything about adjusting the handle release pedal so it holds the handle and base in an upright position better. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
