Thank you for your question. Thank you for the model number. I can understand wanting to replace the swivel yourself. You will need some basic tools. Two small pocket sized flat bladed screw drivers seem to work the best. I will send you some pictures on how to change the swivel.

  • Remove the swivel and hose from the vacuum.
  • At the swivel end look for the plastic mold lines on both the rubber cuff and the elbow of the swivel.
  • Once you locate those insert your flat bladed screw drivers into the swivel groove at the mold seam lines and pry under the cuff and slide the screw driver back under the cuff about 1 1/2 inches to release the locking tab for the cuff on both sides of the swivel.
  • Once you have this done you should be able to slide the cuff up the hose and expose the wire harness and how they lay in the holders. Make note of the wire harness routing so you can install them the same way on the new swivel assembly.
If you do not get them correctly, the cuff will be very difficult to get to slide up and lock.
  • You will now see the locking tab on the swivel that hooks onto the corrugated hose, Flex to release and remove the swivel from the hose.
Re-assemble in reverse order.

I hope this is helpful. Please reply below if you need further assistance on installing the hose. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Thank you for your question on the Kenmore vacuum cleaner power mate brush.

It is possible that the belt has been stretched and will need to be replaced.

I would suggest that you also order the new update roller brush that has a better design to decrease the problem of debris winding around the bearings of the roller brush.

If you have to repeatedly push the reset button to get it to run it sounds like the bearings in the roller brush end caps still have debris wound around the bearing shaft.

I would suggest replacing the roller brush and the belt to repair and upgrade to a brush system that will work better.

New one piece roller brush .

Drive belt .

I hope this will help.

Because we couldn't get the cover off, we took it in for service. I hope they will replace the roller brush instead of just cleaning the bearings. Thanks for the reply.

Thank you for your question on the vacuum cleaner performance.

If you have change the bag and also cleaned or replace the filter in the front of the motor intake right behind the bag then I would say that you have a air flow problem or you power mate is not working.

Can you tell when you turn the vacuum on that the power mate motor is working? Can you tell if the roller brush is rotating?

If you remove the wand tubes from the handle and turn on the vacuum do you have a good suction at the handle.

If you do then there may be a blockage in the wand or the power mate air tube.

You will need to take the power mate cover off and clean any debris that has built up in the tube in the power mate.

If you do not get good suction and the handle assembly then you may have a clogged hose going to the canister head.

To access the power components and air tube, flip the power over and remove the two screws on the underside by the wheels. These screws are recessed.

Then flip it over and pull up on the power mate cover to remove. With the cover off you will have access to the air path from the roller brush.

I have given you a picture of how to remove the cover on the power mate below.

Please let me know what you find out and we can continue troubleshooting.
