Question and Answers

Q:

part number 1162431290

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com. 
The reason why the PowerMate is not within the canister parts list is because the PowerMate has its own model number and is not incorporated within the canister parts.
The PowerMate's model is on the bottom cover of the PowerMate. Based upon the canister model, I show the PowerMate should be model 116.5431290, but it would be worth verifying that number on the PowerMate before ordering parts. 
That will allow you to pull up the PowerMate parts and diagrams on SearsPartsDirect.com. to identify the parts needed for it.
Hopefully this helps and let us know if we can be of any further assistance. Thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com.

Thanks for your answer. However, because the label that shows the info of the powermate was located at the bad spot, which is the bottom cover of the powermate, it was worn and damaged as not to be readable. I'll try the model number that you gave. However, is there another way to find the model number and part number by product name, not by the number? Thanks.

I have another vacuum cleaner, which is 11622312202. What might be the model number of the power-mate of the cleaner? Thanks.

Please disregard my second reply. The model # I gave was wrong. The correct number is 11622512202. What might be the model number of the power-mate of the cleaner? Thanks.

Q:

I have a Kenmore Canister Vacuum Model#116.2431290 and the retractable cord is hopelessly tangled 18" out of the retriever rewind mechanism.

A:

Good morning... Sometimes those cords can be notorious. Keep in mind they have a high tension spring I want you to be alert to. Below I have provided a link that will bring up a full page of canister cord issues. I did not find a link for your particular model number. Go through these different reports because mechanically they will all be very similar. You will hear from an expert within the next two business days. I hope this helps you and have a nice day.

Hello Will. I posted a basic procedure for removing the canopy on that vacuum cleaner in the image below. You can view that parts diagram for your vacuum cleaner on this page: Kenmore Vacuum Cleaner Model 116.2431290 Parts . This information may help you free up that power cord so that it will retract. Henry is correct about that cord reel being under spring tension. Use caution when working around that cord reel.

If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will try to assist you further.

Thank you for your question.

I can understand wanting to replace the hose yourself on the vacuum.

To replace this connection pipe you will need to have some basic tools.

  • Two small pocket type flat blade screwdrivers seam to work the best for this repair.

  • Locate on the hose elbow connection the molded seam line in the cuff and on the elbow connection.

  • Place the flat blade screwdriver in the gap between the elbow and the hose cuff and work up under the cuff along the seam line up the hose in under the cuff for about 1 inch or until you release the locking tab.

  • Do this on both sides of the cuff, so both sides are released at the same time.

  • Once the tabs are released, slide the cuff up the hose and out of the way.

  • This will expose the wiring harness on the connection pipe. NOTE: the location of the wires and how they fit onto and around the connection pipe so you can install them back exactly as they are or the cuff with not lock back onto the connection pipe.

  • Remove the push in connectors on the wire harness and then locate locking tab on the connector pipe and release it from the spiral of the hose and remove the connection pipe from the hose.

  • Install the new connector and re-connect all the wires and slide the cuff back up the connector. This will take a little working back and forth of the cuff to get it to lock onto the new pipe.

I will include a couple of pictures to help you with the repair.

I hope this will help.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.
