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

Won't **** I have a kenmore progressive upright bag vacume. when I turn it on it sounds find, then all the sudden it sounds like it has sucked something into it blocking the suction. Can you help?

Answers :

There is what they call an intake.disconnect the hose and see if it make the same sound.if not then its clogged up in the hose.if it still makes the same sound with the hose off then here is what you have to do.on the top of the base there are 2 slide buttons ,slide them outward to unlock the cover.remove the cover and you will see where the suction intake begins.it will be on your left side as your facing the vcuum.the tube sets into a slot just raise it up and look inside and see if theres anything in there.take a coat hanger with the end bent so it is round and work it down into the tube where you disconnected the hose.if theres anything in there you should be able to push it out with the coat hanger.you can take the bag cover off and remove the bag then you will see the outlet tube that dumps the dirt into the bag.see if there is anything there..see if you can blow into the hose if not thats where the clog is.if so take the hose off completely and put it in the sink and run water through it,better yet take it outside and blow it out with a garden hose

My dyson turns on but when i push it to vacuum it makes this awful sound like something got sucked up and caught. i turn it off and turn it over and nothing is stuck. My husband even looked at it and he thinks it's the belt. The belt doesn't turn as loose. Please help.

Hi. I have a Kirby from back in the early 90s (model G3D). Never had major issues with it. Can't remember the last time I had maintenance/tune up done. It's just sounding different when I run it the last few times...almost like it's louder and kind of echo-ey. Still suctioning well, but something's not right and I don't want to run it until I know if anything's up. Any suggestions? I'd like to try and figure this one out on my own with your help. Thanks in advance for your help. Marci

Check the belt. this is a strong vaccume and even without the belt it will still have a decent amount of suction. If the belt is not tight or intact it can let the motor turn faster which will sound louder. other than that check all the hoses for hol ... Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum

It's previously low decibel drone is now so loud it makes my ears ring afterwards...its sound is high pitched, almost like its hose is blocked, but it isn't...and suction remains good...I just can't take the sound...Help me.

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

I bought this vaccuum just a few months ago. Now it barely sucks anything up and it is making this very loud noise. It almost sounds like the brush is going to vibrate off.

Kenmoore Intellivac w direct drive suddenly started making internal sound like something was stuck. Hose is clear, and sound is made when hose is detached from main unit. Vacuum sounds find at lower pressure, only makes sound with bag door closed and/or placing my hand over the end of hose.

Shut off the vac and open container and remove the bag. Try dropping a coin into the hose, then raise up to see if it falls thru to the bag area. If it does check the throat of the vac where the dirt is sucked upward to dump into the bag itself. ... Kenmore 35912 / 35913 Progressive Upright Vacuum

Dead motor? My 8 year old Miele S251i has worked fine, until I was recently vacuuming and moved the plug from one outlet to another. When I restarted the vacuum, it made rrrrr.....rrrrrr....rrrrr noises and smelled like something was burning. I turned it off, and it's shown no signs of life since. Sound like a motor problem? I've taken the cover off and looked at the cord and seen the motor, nothing looks obviously wrong, but I'm also not mechanical.

Loud noise I ran over a string and then shut it off quickly. It now makes a horrible grinding sound. Did I ruin the motor? Sounds like something came undone. I checked the belt and that is fine. Ideas?
