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

My vacuum is making a high pitched sound and has no suction from the hose?


Answers :

Hi, what this points towards is a blockage either in the pipe or where the filters are, if you dont unblock it then it will over heat and blow the motor.

This is a very common fault for this make of vac and they dont tend to last long anyway.

Your best option would be to remove the part you empty and take out any filters you can get access to give the filters a good clean by banging them on a wall to remove any build up of dust and hair.

The have a look at the pipe try and take the pipe off the usual place for blockage is where the pipe goes into the vac so check here for blockage its usually just a build up of stuff you have vac up that has caused a blockage.

as you have no suction from the hose you would then have no suction at the floor part so dont try using it like it is . you need to remove the hose its either screwed in or held in by two plastic clips that you can push with a screwdriver once you have undone this you should be able to see the blockage.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

High pitch My Hoover fusion vacuum cleaner began making a high pitch sound that makes it very annoying to vacuum. I cleaned all the things I could clean. I even cut out all the hair that was entangled in the brushes. Any idea what is causing the sound. It sounds like an siren is going off.

It sounds like the bearings in the motor are shot. You can try to get a replacement motor, or if you're a mechanical genius type, you might be able to repair the motor bearings. If the shaft is worn, you'll have to buy a new motor.\015\012Y ... Fein 9-77-25 Turbo III Bagged Canister Vacuum

With cleaning carpets with the Stowaway when the head gets a blockage it makes a high pitched whining sound and requires unblocking - then works fine. Now when vacuuming the head always makes the same sound when the head is against the carpet. you can also see that the rollers are slow or stopped. We have pulled the Stowaway virtually completely apart and checked for blockages as well as washed the filter and no difference. Any ideas?

I bought a Kenmore canister vacuum, model 116, in April 2007. This morning, the sound of the motor suddenly began to deepen, and I began to lose suction. Normally, if something is clogging the hose, the motor will wind up to a higher pitch, not a lower one. The filters are clean, the bag is empty, and I can't detect anything lodged in the hose. If this were a car's engine, I would say it's "lugging down". Any pointers?
