Also, I forgot to add above that after my wife pulled the Swivl-Hose assembly apart, she then stuck the hose part of the swivl-Hose assemble back into the body insert part of the Swivl-Hose and bent over the top contact. I am not sure if this allowed it to short to the contact below it or not. (there are 4 contacts inside the Swivl-Hose assembly allowing it to rotate.) Just FYI incase the above addl. info. might influence you opinion of what may have gone wrong with the Kenmore Progressive Canister Vacuum 116.29912990. As stated above, I have already installed a new Swivl-Hose Assembly and now the Vacuum will not turn on. Thanks again, Mark

Thank you for your question on the vacuum cleaner not getting power to run.

If you have power to the outlet and all you repair connections are good with wiring in the hose and swivel that was replaced then I could be either the control pcb in the handle control or the main motor controller in the base of the canister.

You will need to remove the top canopy over the motor so you can check the voltage going into and out of the pcb board for the suction motor.

You will first need to remove the top dust and tool storage cover buy pulling them up and over backwards to remove from the canister base.

This will expose the two front screws to the motor canopy.

Then pop the rewind reel cord button off the base to access the two back screws.

Then you can remove the motor canopy straight up and off the canister base.

I have attached a couple of troubleshooting pages below to help you with the diagnosis.

On the link posted in question #197911 the page showing how to remove the hose refers to using the "same procedure as removing the hose from the handle". Can you send me the link for the handle as well as the connector?

Thank you for your question on the replacement of the hose for the vacuum cleaner.

I will give you some instructions for changing both ends of the hose.

You can replace just the hose on this model.

On the handle end you will need to remove the recessed screws in the handle half and then unsnap the plastic locking snaps to separate the two half�s of the handle.

Keep track of where all the loose parts in the switch and slide knobs are so you can put them back in the same places.

On the hose elbow end it is a little trickier.

116.2 vacuum cleaner hose elbow swivel replacement.

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.
