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

Kenmore Progressive issue

\015 The dirt sensor red and yellow lights stay on all the time now. I've had the vacuum for two months. The suction is still fine, so I assume it's a sensor problem. But if this is a main feature of the vacuum and it goes on the fritz this fast, that's now good. Any suggestions? Cleaning of a sensor? Where is the sensor located?\015

Answers :

I started by replacing the bag. No change.

I opened the bag compartment and noticed that the dirt sensor went to clean, but only when the compartment was open.

I cleaned out the foam filer at the bottom of the bag compartment. No change.

I took off the air outflow filter and cleaned it (Should have replaced it, but don't have a spare right now.). No change.

Unscrewed the hos from the back of the vacuum. The dirt sensor again went to clean.

I had isolated the problem to the hose. I hooked the hose back up and the dirt sensor went to dirty again.
The problem was that the hose was dirty on the inside. To clean the hose, I stretched it out little by little and banged it a little to loosed the dirt with the vacuum running. After the hose was cleaned, the dirt sensor had no problems.
In manual it tells you how to clean the dirt sensor

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

My Kenmore progressive vacuum is extremely loud. The airflow and suction seem to be uninhibited, but the noise is loud and frustrating. Should the filters just be cleaned or is this a sign of a different problem? It's a Kenmore Progressive Bagless Upright Vacuum 35912 and we've had it for about four years.

I have a Kenmore DuraPower Dual Cyclone Action 12 Amp that just randomly stopped right in the middle of vacuuming. I assumed the plug had come out of the wall so I went to check and this wasn't the issue. I tried multiple outlets and that wasn't the issue. I made sure nothing was stuck and there is nothing stuck. Nothing happens when I press the red "ON" button. What could this be? Thanks!

I just bought a good Sears Kenmore Progressive 300 upright vacuum (116.38812891) today at a garage sale for five bucks. I left my relic Electrolux with the new owners of my former home during a recent relocation. In the interim I bought a Bissel 3750H which I do not care for, and borrowed a Eureka 7685 AU which performs somewhat better. I cleaned up the Kenmore, and though it seems to run well, noticed the drive belt is showing signs of degeneration. I would like to replace it, but was unable t

Kenmore 21875 One day it's working fine. Next day, it won't turn on. When I attach the hose to another vacuum cleaner, it runs. Is there a reset button on the canister? Could it be the receptacle is bad? My Kenmore Progressive won't turn on today either -but was fine last week. I cleaned the filters checked for blocked air, tried a different outlet and no luck. I'll check the pins on the connections and see if one of them is not matching up or appears worn.
