Q:

Vacuum Hose Replacement 1162843080 Kenmore Vacuum cleaner/hose & attachment parts

A:

Thank you for choosing Searspartsdirect.com and being a valued member. I can certainly assist you.

I did check into the part number you have provided and I do apologize I cannot guarantee 4148697 will fit model 116.28410 because they do not look alike and all parts are model number specific. Your orginal hose is no longer available. After 5-10 years manufactures stop selling parts. You will need to locate a used hose or purchase a new unit. 

You can also visit searpartsdirect.com for parts, diagrams, and repair information.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Thank you for your question. Have a great day.

Thank you for your question on the filter installation location on the vacuum cleaner.

The part number KS706389 I do not recognize as a filter for this model vacuum cleaner

The model you have listed has only two filters. One is behind the dust bag and it is a plastic mesh filter that goes in front of the motor intake and the other is an internal foam exhaust filter.

Please reply as to the type of filter you have for this vacuum and I will try to help you with its location and installation.

The model number of the vacuum is of an older style so if you could please verify that the number you gave as 116.2843080 is the correct model number for your vacuum.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Yes. 116-2843080 is the model of the vacuum cleaner. Yes. The vacuum cleaner is old. It's around a 1987 model. Yes. KS706389 is the interior foam filter that the Sears parts lady said I needed for this model vacuum cleaner. I have seen this filter number in one of the parts diagrams for this model, but there was no clue as to how I was supposed to get to it. I originally was ordering just the one behind the bag, but she said I needed the internal one also. I told her I didn't see anyway to install it, but I asked her at least twice and she assured me instruction would come with it. I'm not happy that I have apparently been swindled into buying a filter that apparently was never meant to be replaced by the typcial homeowner. Shame on that lady. Sorry to sound so cranky about this, but someone at 800-366-PART should have been able to email or mail me the installation directions without having to go to so many outside sources. Hopefully you can help me. Sears is a good company, but I am NOT pleased this time, at all. Please make me feel better.

Thank you for your update. This filter part number 706389 is the exhaust filter for capturing the carbon particles that come of the motor as it the motor ages. Because of the age of the motor it would be a good idea to change this filter but it is usually done by a technician but customers with a little instruction can also change this filter. Lift the tool cover and the bag cover up and pull them one at a time over backwards to remove from the base. (They will not break) This will expose the two screws on the corners of the front part of the motor compartment. Then remove the top canopy of the motor cover by pressing in on the sides and popping up and off. This is where the on off rocker switch is located. This exposes the screws that hold the back part of the motor canopy to the base of the vacuum. Once removed you can lift the motor canopy straight up and off the base enough to take the old foam filter out and slip the new foam filter into place. If you choose not to do this, you do not have too. This filter is probably okay the way it is. As long as you never had a bag break during operation and replaced your bags on the regular bases it probably is fine with out replacing it. I am sure she was thinking of the newer models that have a final air filter at the back of the vacuum that normally needs to be replaced and is behind a flip down door and is replaceable from the outside. I am sorry that she sold you something you really may not have needed. Sam A.

Q:

How do I open the back of my Kenmore Vacuum 1162843080 to replace the rear exhaust filter?

A:

You can go to www.searspartsdirect.com and enter the model of the vacuum. You can see a parts diagram of the vacuum that will show you the rear filter. It is item 7 in the parts diagram.

To access the screws to remove the rear cover, you must remove the cord return button. To remove the cord return button, place one knee on the vacuum, grasp the cord return button with both hands and pull straight up as hard as you can. You will think you are going to break the cord return button, but you won't.
