Kenmore 25512/ 25513 Progressive Canister Vacuum\015 I have a kenmore canister vac model # 116.25512504. One day while using it the vac began to shut off. Then finally it stopped working. We replaced the switch in the handle, but it still isn’t working. I checked the fuse in the machine and bypassed it, but it still won’t turn on. Any other suggestions???.Thanks,.Jodi\015

At only 14lbs, the 2-motor vacuum cleaner provides 10ft of extended reach for cleaning above floors, stairs and other hard-to-access areas. The versatile 3-in-1 combination tool includes a crevice tool, dusting brush and an upholstery tool to lift pet hair from couches to curtains to baseboards.
Most side-by-side and some inexpensive French door models are made by Whirlpool, while nearly all high-end French door and some side-by-side models are made by LG. Vacuums: For the past decade, Kenmore`s flagship vacuums were made by Panasonic (less-expensive models came from TTI, Eureka, and PhoneMate).
How long do Kenmore vacuums last? A. It`s suggested that the typical vacuum can last up to an average of eight years. With proper maintenance, a Kenmore vacuum could last that long or longer.
Kenmore model numbers typically include a three-digit prefix followed by a dot and a series of numbers that represent the specific appliance model.

The maximum time one can safely be exposed to 100dB is for 15 minutes only. This means it is best to choose a vacuum cleaner with a noise output that is less than 70 dB. However, the noise levels of vacuum cleaners fall between 75dB to 85dB.
One caveat: Handling this vacuum`s 23 pounds takes some muscle. In our member survey, Kenmore canisters earned a very good score for predicted reliability and an average rating for owner satisfaction.
The vacuum emerges as the synthesis of concepts of space, time, and matter; in the context of relativity and the quantum this new synthesis represents a structure of the most intricate and novel complexity.
Commercial vacuum cleaners are mostly larger in size, with greater suction power but less energy consumption. They are heavier as well because of the more sturdy materials used to manufacture them. Regular vacuum cleaners are usually lightweight, so it is easy for the users to carry them around the house.
For a perfect vacuum to occur, space would need to be totally devoid of all matter including energy fluctuations which exist even in empty space. A vacuum is defined as a space devoid of all matter.

I had the vacuum cleaner question about the canister and the wand/powerhead… the Kenmore Progressive Vacuum canister model 116.25812 and the canister not powering off without unplugging the vacuum. The solution I received that they both run on their own switch so it is normal makes sense. However, is there a power switch on the canister anywhere? The only way for the canister to be turned off is by unplugging it. Any ideas? One would think there would be a switch. I am new to fixya and hope
ANSWER : Hi. On some models, one switch controls all of the power. Your issue, which is no working switch is almost certainly a blown triac on the circuit board in the canister – kenmore part number KC86WBZRZ000

Looks like a common fault with this particular model judging by the number of complaints on the web.

No power to head of Kenmore Progressive canister vac
ANSWER : The extension wands are defective and have trouble with their plug connectors on each end. The power head has a reset button on top right but no lights mean no power which means the wand isn’t connecting the power to anything.

Sears has a new replacement — too bad it isn’t recalled so you could get it for free ($106.59 + tax + shipping). 2nd sweeper — same problem.

1st sweeper: I just took needlenose pliers and pulled connectors out a little further (Too bad I can’t seem to make the 2nd sweeper work with this easily. It might be one of the connectors or the wiring harness inbetween with a break.) Can’t buy the wiring harness for this or connectors, just the wand.

If anyone has a working wand you want to sell me email me at [email protected]. Thanks!

It has a 2 stage switch on the handle, the vacuum motor will not work, the carpet beater attachment does work, the vacuum motor will not cut on at all with either stage, 1st stage is vac only, 2nd is vac a carpet attachment. Carpet attachment will work, vac does not.
ANSWER : Try to find the reset button. It should be somwhere near the bottom area. It looks like a red dot that you can push inward. If you can press and hold the reset button, it will restart your suction and solve your problem.
