Q:

Removing the canopy 1162143090 Kenmore Vacuum cleaner

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

Unfortunately, due to the age of this canister vacuum, we do not have any model specific literature for the canopy removal. However, I will provide you a general outline of how it’s done.

The first thing to do is to remove the tool cover and dust covers off the top of the canister by pulling them up and over backwards until they pop out of the housing.

This will expose the two front screws. Remove these two screws.

Then remove the cover over the final filter, and remove the filter.

Then remove the cord retractor button on the back of the housing. This should expose the other two screws that may be recessed into the motor canopy.

To remove the button, push in to compress the side with your fingers on the back side to release the plastic tabs that hold it into the housing. Squeeze in and pull up to pop it off. Watch for the return spring for the button.

With all four screws removed you should be able to lift the canopy straight up off the base.

I hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

Thank you for submitting your question. I understand your concern and I will be happy to assist you. The rubber part on the end of your old hose is called a hose adapter. The adapter has a slightly raised molded joint on it. Place a small screwdriver at each end of the molded joint and push it underneath the joint 1- 1 1/2 inches. These screwdrivers will release a tab underneath the molded joint and the hose adapter will slide off the hose. You will need to perform this operation to both of the hose adapters. The hose adapters will slide on to the new hose and lock without you having to use the screwdrivers. I hope this information helps. Please reply back to this thread if you require further assistance with this repair. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
