HI, it's Jim from Crucial Vacuum!
\012Here are some general vacuum maintenance tips that will help out with your Kenmore's loss of suction. After applying these solutions you should see an improvement in your vacuums suction.
\012Lets check out your brush roll. Look for any noticeable debris, and be sure to manually rotate the brush roll to unearth any hidden clogs. If you see carpet fibers, or strands of hair remove these with a razor.
\012After every use, make sure to empty your unit's dust cup. Allowing for fine dust and debris to rest in your unit's dust cup for a long period may cause your unit to become clogged, which leads to poor or even no suction.
\012Another area to check is your vacuums hose. Stretch it out as far as you can to see of any clogs. If there is a clog in a hard to reach spot try using a broom handle to unclog it.
\012It is recommended to wash and clean your unit's filter weekly. To do so, empty your filter screen outdoors to take off any excess debris and then clean under running water until the water comes out clean. Allow the filter screen to fully dry before inserting it back into the unit. This may take up to several hours.
\012Is the belt intact? After usage the belt will stretch out and lessen the tension on the brush roll. This could be causing the brush roll to have a lack of resistance against it. You want to be sure the belt is on there nice and tight.

For the canister-style vacuum with the long hose, you can't see all the way thru it, since the plastic fittings on the ends are curved. Mine was clogged - I mean, really clogged! Others have suggested using a high-powered air compressor to blow it out, but I augured out my lint/hair/straw/other-unidentifiable-stuff clog with a manual (hand-crank) home sink/drain auger. Worked like a charm! Use a small mirror (like a dental mirror) and a flashlight to see a little ways into the hose if you want. Finally, run the auger all the way thru to make sure you push out anything you couldn't spear and pull out.

No Suction My two year old Kenmore Progressive stopped working in January. The guy at the Sears service center convinced me that buying a new one would be cheaper than getting it fixed.
