Having problems with your Kenmore Canister Vacuum Vacuum ?

Also have a Kenmore Model 116. Power retractor not holding cord

\015 When pulled out to any specific length. Always wants to pull the cord back into housing. Would like to open the housing to see what might be wrong, but without a Owner's Manual can't determine how this is done (no screws to remove) ?\015\012Anyone know how to open these ? ?\015

Answers :

The cord winder on these is spring loaded and has cog which is meant to lock with every full rotation of the spool the cord winds onto. It is tricky to work on.
Try pulling a bit more slowly and see if the rewind will stop.
The back housing on top of the vac needs to be removed to access the rewind. The housing snaps into place at the back corners, generally must be carefully pried and popped off by someone familiar with the vac. Some models may also have 2 screws under the lid in the bag area.

A family member recently gave me their Kenmore Vacuum Cleaner (model 35821) and I did not notice that the power cord was missing at first. I tried to look closely at the manual online to see if this was something I would be able to purchase or if the vacuum was no longer any good. Do you happen to know if there is a replacement part for the actual power cord for this item?

I am getting very little suction from the motor. The hose is clear, the bag new. When I open the bag cover, plug the hose in and turn the vacuum on, there is next to no suction from the motor. What do you think is wrong? How do I remove the cord retractor to get to the two screws that hold the back of the canopy cover?

Your problem is probably is you don't have a proper seal in your chasis. A vacuum has to be sealed tight or the air will leak out and the seal broken. Check around the whole body after the bag is in and check for any airflow noise. I could help more ... Vacuums

I have a Kenmore canister serial number DB12027279, model 116-2234590. The problem is that the power cord plug gets very hot. Please advise what to do. Thank you.

Just a suggestion, as the debris enters the machine, it has to pass the motor. The motor has vents around it. Enough "debris" gets in that motor, the motor starves for power, which inturns make the media, the cord, work harder.\015\012\01 ... Vacuums
