Kenmore intuition bagless suction problems

\015 After sucking up a pair of stockings that got stuck around the roller brush and finally got it out. There seems to be no suction at all when I run it on the carpet, I cleaned the filters and the dirt collector. There is suction but not for the main floor.\015

Answers :

The flaw is in the design. The roller on these things will go bad on you eventually as the roller motor is incorporated into the roller itself rather than being belt driven. To seal against hair and dirt from getting into the roller bearings there is felt around the surface of the roller towards the end, this felt looses its shape over time and lets the hair get in and do its damage. I have had to replace the roller twice and am not looking for solutions to replace the felt with something a bit more sturdy.

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.

Kenmore InteliClean 116.35923502 Two, I believe unrelated, problems. 1) The InteliClean sensor lights stay amber and red even when the machine is in the upright position and the suction line is disconnected from the cleaner head. 2) There is a lot of vibration and noise in the agitator roller housing. I picked a little hair out of the roller brushes but other than that they were clean. Thank you for any suggestion you might offer.
