Dirt sensors stopped working - Kenmore Vacuums


Answers :

Sadly if a vacuum cleaner has a sensor plate that senses if a room or floor surface is dirty, it will have a sensor plate built in. Check to see if this is possible to gain entry into the Kenmore - I doubt it - but it would have to be cleaned in order for it to be used again. Usually sensors are gimicks when it comes to cleaning up dust. If the vacuum won't function because the sensor plate isn't working, it would have to be repaired by someone who deals with Kenmore.

I have a Kenmore Elegance Vacuum with Dirt Sensor, Model # 116.30750400C, Serial number M41901532.

... Kenmore Vacuums

Unbeknownst to me, someone took the bag out of my Kenmore Progressive vacuum and failed to replace it. I have been vacuuming without a bag for months, and today the vacuum stopped sucking. When I opened up the front to replace the bag, tons of dirt and dust came pouring out. I thoroughly cleaned the vacuum, put in a new bag, but still no sucking power. Just dust coming from the rear vents where one of the filters is. Is the vacuum ruined, or is it a simple solution of buying a new filter?


Sounds like you need to buy a new motor. All that grit and dust will ruin a motor and I'm surprised it lasted as long as it did.\015\012This is where a vacuum that won't run without a bag would have been nice. (Aerus for one) ... Kenmore 31913 Progressive Direct Drive Bagged Upright Vacuum

Which Kenmore vacuum cleaners are made by Panasonic? Are all of their direct drive machines made by Panasonic? We have a blue Hoover Windtunnel with the dirt sensor.

We bought Kenmore models 36722 and 36724 and love them. I believe they were made by Panasonic. Our Kirby sits in the basement. Much heavier. These are quiet and clean well. I would like an

Some of the Dirt Devils have a reset button on the back, near the bottom. But if the it is getting hot on the bottom, that may mean the motor is trying to run but can't. Maybe something has jammed it. You would have to disasemble it to find out. ... Vacuums
