Having problems with your Kenmore 35912 / 35913 Progressive Upright Vacuum ?

The indicator lights are not working

\015 When I turn on my inteliclean button it does not move up to the green level no matter what. I have it raised up and it still has a red light and it should be green. The vacuum is sucking up dirt and cleaning but the lights are not working and the vacuum is not changing the level of suction so the motor is always running at high speed.\015

Answers :

The dirt sensor is just inside where the bag attaches. It shines a beam of invisible light across the bag discharge tube. It will always show dirty if dust gets caked on it. Try wiping the area clean. This fix did not work for me. Remove the 3 screws that hold the hose assembly to the back of the vacuum, check to see if there is a piece of hair snagged on the end of the hose. This was the case for me. When running, the hair would wave back and forth by the sensor and set it off.
Wow! This worked like a charm. Thanks for the info

I cant detect where the damage but it dosn't work or even the light indicator didn't open, no heat even in maximum level, i plug in for almost an hour but the iron is not responding or not really working and still cold.... how can we fix to make this appliances work again? tanx,


If it's an old iron, then maybe there is some loose wire inside, which could be fixed with proper tools and some knowledge of electricity, but if you are not familiar with taking apart electric appliances - you should just replace it, because it is p ... Vacuums

SEBO vacuum cleaner makes a strange noise and shuts itself off after a few minutes. Suction not working when tube is attached, but works with hand-held portion only. Indicator light saying bag is full/clogged is on, but we've cleaned out the bag, cut away any fur/strings that were wrapped on the turning portion, and cleaned out the refuse valve. Not sure what else to do. Thanks!

Hi, last week I bought a new Henry vacuum with autosave, now the autosave feature is not working. The red indicator light does not light up and the motor does not change speed. Any ideas, other than returning to dealer?

Haier 65 pt Dehumidifier. I purchased a new Haier Dehumidifier 2 years ago. I believe this is the third season and it had been working great. Very quite and on humid day's, I have to empty it every 10-12 hrs. Two day's ago it just stopped working, no indicator lights. I plugged it into another outlet to be sure with the same result. I believe it is either the bucket switch or main switch. What do you think and where can I get parts. I live in MA.

I have a 2 fluorescent light fixture in my bathroom. The right side light quit working. I took the starter out of the left side and put it in the right and it worked. Starter, right? I bought a package of 2 Leviton starters FS 2 15w. They didn't work. Thinking bad, I returned it for another package. Still not working. The original starter is a Sylvania FS 2. Is it possible to have FOUR bad "new" starters? Do I need to replace it with the EXACT same starter? This light fixture is 38 years old. No


It is not likely that you had 4 bad starters.I assume you have more modern lights in it too(not 30 yrs old).Here is a link to Sylvania.It may be just that it requires certain something(who knows what)that only Sylvania has.It seems strange because th ... Vacuums

I have a remote Hunter Ceiling Fan w/ remote 1-2-3 fan speed buttons and one on/off/dimmer light button. Model Number CP-9110R. It only has one pull string and it is for the light. I would like convert the light to work off of a simple wall on/off switch and the fan to be controlled by a 3-speed pull string. Can I by-pass all the sensors and make it work?


I see noone has answered so I will.Yes,it could be done,but if there is not a conversion kit for your fan,it would not be wise to do it.For starters,all of the things required would probably cost at least $15.Also,there is at least one tool you would ... Vacuums
