Having problems with your Kenmore Vacuums ?
Our kenmore progressive model #11634922 was working fine today. And then - it's not. Plugged in - nothing is working on it. We let it cool down (though it didn't seem hot). Still nothing - no light, no motor. Tried it in some other plugs that we know are functioning well - and still nothing. Any idea what might be wrong with it? It's six years old but doesn't get heavy use.
Thanks so much ~ Susan Golden
Hi, it could be a number of things, cord may be bad as well as a problem with the motor. There also is a fuse that could have blown.

Motor still runs--sounds like jet engine. do I need a new motor? or is there some sort of muffler that has malfunctioned? vacuum belongs to disabled mom---so trying to do work ourselves--cant afford much. dont see anything obviously wrong--but know nothing about electric motors.
This little vac I think is actually made by Samsung. If it is ROARING and vibrating, either the bearings or suction fan is in bad shape. Remove the lid as if to inspect the belt and see if there is a visible intake opening with a plastic fan rotatin ... Bissell 3590 CleanView Bagless Upright Vacuum
I have only had my shark steam mop for about a month and only used it twice. I tried to use it yesterday and it would not work. The green light came on and it worked for maybe ten seconds, then it completely shut off. I tried switching outlets and draining the water but nothing worked. It still doesn't work today either. What do you think is wrong? Does this product have a warranty?
Yes has warranty call Shark/europro. ... Euro-Pro Shark Steam Mop - Gray/ Purple Vacuum
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

I have a Zanussi 1700W bagless upright vacuum cleaner which keeps cutting out after about 5/10 mins use. I had to replace the rubber drive belt which snapped not long after purchasing and it was fine for a while, but now its just keeps cutting out after a small amount of use. Nothing wrong with belt which is still intact so we don't know what the problem is. It's a great cleaner otherwise - but it's driving us mad!! Please help!
Hi all---I have a Dirt Devil 091020V. there was a problem with the wand where it was the only thing sucking even when it was stuck in the tube it would ****--but nothing from the vacuum end--the diverter was stuck closed I took it apart and found something stuck but in the meantime the torsion spring [I think} fell out and I don't know where it goes--so now only the vacuum works --not the overhead cleaner part.. is there a digram somewhere that can tell me where it goes--I think it might b

FOR dlh2457: Just came across your post to another person's dilemma. I found this Baby Lock BL4 428 serger at a thrift store. It powers on but I know nothing about its use.

The handle for my Eureka 5993 AVZ was getting very hot when used. Finally, the wires around the switch melted and now the vacuum will not work. What is wrong? Is the switch bad? The wires only melted in the immediate vicinity of the three-prong switch. Nothing else appears to be wrong; the vacuum worked fine when it was running - except for the handle getting hot. Thank you!

The vacuum won't start. I used it for about an hour and then turned it off and when I went to turn it back on ..there was no response. I cleaned every compartment on the machine and it's still not working. I also tried using a different outlet in the house. I've waited 24 hours thinking maybe it might have been just the vacuum over heating, but it's still not working.

Water is not being discharged. I have filled the reservoir that holds the carpet cleaner fluid And I have filled the water container. I know how to use the cleaner, it has always worked, But now, no water is being discharged to the carpet. I turn it on, squeeze the trigger, but nothing comes out. The wheel that is suppose to spin (to indicate that water is being discharged) is not spinning. Everything else works. I.e. the suction works, and the hand held accessories work.
