Having problems with your Kenmore Vacuums ?

We have a kenmore canister vacuum, the part that is attached to the wand that picks up the dirt doesn't work, when it's on the carpet the light does not go on. Do we need to buy a new vacuum or is there a replacement for this part.

Hard to say without the correct model number.\015\012
\015\012However, you could check these things first:\015\012
\015\0121- Is the belt that runs the brushes on the end pieces broken? If it is, is needs to be replaced.\015\0122- Is there power to the control head that is not operating? This is a guess on my part since it is not possible to know the makeup of your unit without the model number.\015\012
\015\012Check these things and let me know how you make out and we can go from there, as long as I can get the model number.\015\012

Kirby Vacuum Hi Bruce, In my opinion, yes the Kirby would be worth it, as long as you are not replacing the motor. The switch would be the most expensive part besides the motor that would need to be replaced. The switch costs USD 49.99, the cord is roughly $39.99, and the carbon brushes are $29.99. I can easily walk you through any of these repairs should you need help. Kirby's are great vacuum cleaners, that usually last 30+ years. Brand new these machines sell in the US for $1600 or more,

I need to purchase new blades for our 52" Jericho IV ceiling fan, Model 166315. I went to home depot in Harrisville, UT and they said that we would have to contact you and they didn't have ANY replacement fan blades in stock. HOW COULD THAT BE WHEN THEY HAVE HAMPTON BAY FANS ALL OVER THEIR LIGHTING SECTION? What kind of a business are you running when one can't get replacement parts? Our fan is making noise and I want to replace the blades. How hard can that be? By-the- way; I hope you no

My older Dyson DC14 (the purple one) early model with a clutch on the beater bar belt needs a clutch replacement. The bar has been cleaned and there are no worn or damaged parts so I conclude that the clutch at the motor end of the belt needs to be replaced. I can find the part online but no instructions on how to disassemble the vacuum to get to and replace it. Dysons only advice is to give me the address and phone of the nearest service center. Can you help me?

Have a look at www.dysonmedic.com which has some very useful info on dismantling and repairing Dysons.\015\012\015\012Although this site doesnt actually cover the DC1 ... Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

I have a dyson dc07 with a malfuncitoning clutch diagnosed here on fixya. I've replaced the clutch and the grinding noise when the clutch is engaged for carpet and non rotating brush problem presists. This is after replacement of the clutch with a new part. Install of the new part went well and there are no otehr apparent problems with the unit. Ideas? The unit is only a couple years old and not used that much on carpet. For an expensive vacuum I'm not that impressed with it at this point.

I Have two questions concerning my AIRVAC AV2500 Red Series Vacuum System. How do you replace the light in the floor power head sweeper and can you replace the permanent fabric filter? We had the system installed in 2004 and the light in the sweeper head just went out and can not find any manual on line on how to replace it. The filter if not torn but avter 6 years it probably needs some kine of cleaning or replaced even though it says permanent. Any help would be appreciated. Jim McCluskey

I was vacuuming and noticed that the bag needed changing. the red light with the ! inside the triangle also came on. When the bag was changed, the vacuum would not restart. The red light came on. Tried the reset button but nothing happened. Tried unplugging and re-plugging in and nothing happened. Replaced all the filters and still it wouldh't start. So I brought it downstairs and tried one more time to get it to start. it worked! Is there something wrong with the vacuum cleaner? Was it overheat

It was overheated that is why it worked downstairs after cooling off. ... Miele S548 Bagged Canister Vacuum

While vacuuming the red light for the bag of the vacuum came on and the vacuum stopped. The bag was no where near full so I replaced it with a new bag - same problem. It vaccumes for a minute or then stops with bag light on. It is the correct bag for the machine - so what's the problem?

I'm assuming this is the Epic 6500 or similar model.\015\012Detach the hose, turn vacuum on. If it runs, place palm of hand against inport hole. If it shuts off the problem is with either the control valve setting or the control valve assembl ... Electrolux Vacuums

Dirt devil vacuum cleaner--trouble vacuuming dirt and pet hair on carpeting --is the problem with the spinning brush which contacts the floor,  not contacting the carpeting??  I thought (when I bought this vacuum) that the aforementioned brush was adjustable to various heights of carpeting.  Sometimes, it seems like nothing is being vacuumed up --unless I have just put a new bag on the vacuum...

Replacement parts? Where can I get a new impeller. Something somehow made its way into mine and trashed it. Now it makes an awful noise. I know I could replace it my self, but it probably costs more than a new vacuum.

VACUUM REPAIR I have a Hoover Savvy upright, windtunnel, bag/bagless vacuum (model U8150-900). The Handle Release Foot Pedal - Part #38434026 broke soon after purchase but I finally found a source to replace this item. The problem is that now that I have the repair part I cannot figure out how to remove the old pedal and install the new one. The housing appears to be one piece of solid plastic. Any ideas, PLEASE!

There are 2 tabs that stick out on the release, they fit in slots, so from the top look down and you can see them, using a flatblade screwdriver that will fit in there, push the side in to release it, which isn't easy, but it can be done. When you g ... Vacuums

Please tell me why I should consider buying a dyson after 4 years mine has had to have new parts and now it is totally beyond fixing. So many parts have broken off of it and I can only use so much duct tape to repair. I need a new vacuum but I am very skeptical to invest again in a dyson.

Hi, I have a Kenmore Whispertone canister vacuum that I purchased in 2007. The model # is 116.22271503C, which seems to confuse the parts people. I need to buy a new powerhead & a few months ago was given a price of $75, but now Sears Canada tells me the part # is 20 116KC5OXBZRZUO1 described as Power Mate Assembly for $192.99. I thought the Power Mate was the small powerhead for stairs, upholstery, etc. Have they located the wrong part for me, or is this really what it costs?? Thanks in advance

Yes, powerheads are quite expensive. That sounds about right.\015\012You can check Ebay for better prices, but check the shipping rates before ordering. ... Kenmore Whispertone 23312 Bagged Canister Vacuum

I have a 2 fluorescent light fixture in my bathroom. The right side light quit working. I took the starter out of the left side and put it in the right and it worked. Starter, right? I bought a package of 2 Leviton starters FS 2 15w. They didn't work. Thinking bad, I returned it for another package. Still not working. The original starter is a Sylvania FS 2. Is it possible to have FOUR bad "new" starters? Do I need to replace it with the EXACT same starter? This light fixture is 38 years old. No

It is not likely that you had 4 bad starters.I assume you have more modern lights in it too(not 30 yrs old).Here is a link to Sylvania.It may be just that it requires certain something(who knows what)that only Sylvania has.It seems strange because th ... Vacuums
