Q:

Part #: 2CKH405000 how to Replace base 21637100700 Kenmore Vacuum

Q:

The step button that changes between carpet and bare floor has come off 21637100700 Kenmore Vacuum

A:

I checked for a diagram of that step button but I did not find one. The only technical information that we have for that model of vacuum cleaner is the parts diagram. You can view that image on this page:  Kenmore Vacuum Model 216.37100700 Base Assembly Parts. There appears to be a spring that needs to be "loaded". I just don't have a diagram that will help you see how to position the spring and install the switch.

Q:

Can no longer switch suction between floor and accessory on a Kenmore Progressive vacuum cleaner.

A:

I understand that your Kenmore progressive vacuum has no suction. I have taken some time to research your question here on the Manage My Life website and I noticed that someone else had asked a similar question with a posted response from an expert. I attached the link below for you to view. I hope the link that I provided is helpful.

A:

Thanks for the link, Alina. However, my Kenmore Progressive vacuum motor does appear to have plenty of suction. The problem is that roughly half the suction goes to the floor and the other half to the accessory hose -- all the time now. I cannot switch the suction to just the floor or just the accessory hose. If I could just do that, I would probably get sufficiently high suction either way.

Thank you for your question.

I can understand loosing suction on the vacuum to be a concern.

In looking at this model the floor valve is in the nozzle assemble in the base and the handle operates a valve to open and close the two different directions of air flow.

You will have to flip the vacuum over and remove the lower plate and the roller brush to check the nozzle valve for debris that must be holding the valve door, and wont let it open or close completely.

I hope this will help.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

A:

Thanks, Sam. I found no debris but the valve door is unhinged and stuck open, jammed. The door hubs have been pushed out of the half-circle notches that evidently they are supposed to pivot in. What would you recommend? Take apart and reassemble? Thanks in advance.

Thank you for your update. If the retainers are not broken then I would take it down to the point to where you can snap the door back into place. If it is broken you may have to replace some parts of the base assembly. I hope this will help. Sam A.
