Question and Answers

Q:

How do I repair the foot release for the handle of my Kenmore vacuum cleaner model 1163521290?

A:

The parts diagram for the handle release foot pedal is shown in the image below. You can view the entire parts diagram for your vacuum cleaner on the Sears PartsDirect website. The handle release foot pedal is Key 9 in this image. This image may help you in determining the broken components and ordering parts. We do not have a step by step illustrated repair procedure for accessing and replacing this part on your model of Kenmore vacuum cleaner. It appears that you will need to remove the furniture guard to access this component. Further disassembly may be necessary to access the release pedal. If you are able to disassemble the vacuum cleaner and access the release pedal assembly yourself, you may be able to find and repair the broken part. Without having the specific instructions for accessing and replacing these parts, you may need to take the vacuum cleaner to a technician who can physically examine the unit to determine the proper access procedure and properly replace broken parts.

Q:

I have no suction on my vacuum cleaner. Why?

A:

You probably have a clog inside the nozzle assembly. To check you will need to remove the lower plate and the roller brush.

We don't have images to show you how to remove these parts. Go to www.searshc.com and you can see a parts diagram of the vacuum.

Turn the vacuum nozzle upside down and locate the 2 latches for the lower plate. They are item 23 in the parts diagram. Slide the latches and slowly rotate the cover plate down from the front. Make note of the springs (item 24) in the drawing. Don't lose the springs.

With the roller brush removed, you need to clean the housing that goes back to the hose attachment.
