Kenmore progressive upright canister vacuum

\015 Hello,\015\012My vacuum has begun to make a high pitched squeal when in use...the suctions does not seem to be affected by it but it's pretty loud.\015\012Please help.\015\012Thank you, Trish\015

Answers :

I had the same problem and so my husband took our vacuum apart. I cleaned what I could and discovered that there is a foam filter that sits below a dark gray cover immediately beneath the bag (on the floor of the inside of the vacuum). This is different from the HEPA filter. I cleaned this off (ours had a lot of dog hair on it) and placed it back in the slot. The vacuum is not making the noise anymore and the suction is even improved. I had not noticed the suction had deteriorated as the vacuum still worked well in my opinion. I hope that this helps and that you have the same problem. It was very easy to fix. I believe the noise was due to the impairment to the suction. Good Luck!
I have the same problem with the same age Kenmore. I checked for clogs but there were none. The loud noise sounded like a vibration. The noise was so loud you almost couldn't be in the house when using the vacuum. What I found was, the outer rubber housing of the motor/fan was held together by electrical tape and split at the electrical tape (wow, that's a surprise!!). I taped the housing together with fresh tape but the motor housing continued to split when the filters got slightly clogged and higher pressure was generated inside the motor. I suspect that the split was causing some amount of air from the motor to be exhausted into the inside of the vacuum causing internal parts to vibrate and resonate.

I haven't been able to fix this problem. Unfortunately, the excessive vibration caused a control board to fail which controls the agitator. At this point the vacuum is useless. Poor design by Kenmore so I doubt it can be fixed.

I have a Kenmore Progressive Upright Vacuum - Purple, and it worked just fine. I emptied the canister (like always) and put it back in place. I turned on the vacuum to it immediately shutting down (motor) and only the lights come on. There is no movement/noise/suction at all! Any suggestions? I have tried everything. I have no idea why it did this.


Make sure that something didn't fall into the fan assembly in the base when the canister was removed. The motor should have an overload reset switch. Try moving the motor manually (power plug out) to make sure that it isn't bound up. ... Kenmore Progressive Bagless Upright with Inteli-Clean SystemVacuum

I had the vacuum cleaner question about the canister and the wand/powerhead... the Kenmore Progressive Vacuum canister model 116.25812 and the canister not powering off without unplugging the vacuum. The solution I received that they both run on their own switch so it is normal makes sense. However, is there a power switch on the canister anywhere? The only way for the canister to be turned off is by unplugging it. Any ideas? One would think there would be a switch. I am new to fixya and hope


Hi. On some models, one switch controls all of the power. Your issue, which is no working switch is almost certainly a blown triac on the circuit boar ... Vacuums

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.

Hello, I have a Kenmore Progressive Canister Vacuum 116.20912006. It won't turn on. On the hose assembly, the end where the hose swivel is, there are 4 metal pins that plug into the canister. One of the pins looks like it broke off. There are only three pins remaining. I assume there should be four pins as there are four holes. Is this the problem and is it fixable? The vacuum is from 2002 so I am not sure a replacement part is even available and at what price. Thank you. Susan susan.eng@


Hi Susan, if the pin has broken off you can do one of two things, first, would be to find a local vacuum repair shop and take it there for them to look at. they may be able to look at the hose and fix it for you pretty cheaply. what ... Kenmore Progressive 20912 Bagged Canister Vacuum
