Having problems with your Kenmore Vacuums ?

No suction for Kenmore upright vacuum

\015 I have cleaned the hose - there are no blockages. When the vacuum is turned on it has suction for maybe a second then a loud noise starts. The noise is coming from what appears to be a pressure release (flap) valve on the back of the vacuum.\015

Answers :

You have not stated which model vacuum you have. Bipass vacuum have a bipass compartment which is under drive unit. Make sure there are no cracks around housing as this is where you vacuume is created. In order to have vacuum you must have airflow, in assences suction. No air flow, no suction. If the airflow is deverted somehow suction will stop. Your filter, your bag are all sources of air flow. Clog either and you lose suction. Start with loss of air, being cracks in housing,bag or filter

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.
