20 Most Recent Kenmore 34721 Upright Vacuum Questions & Answers

Refer to your owner's manual on how to replace the belt. You have a broken belt if the vacuum is working fine but brush roll isn't turning. Either that or you have an option on your vacuum to turn the brush roll off???????

It sounds like the motor's going bad. I suggest replacing the motor or the vacuum, depending on the condition of the rest of the vacuum, and how much the service center charges for a new motor and service.
If it's an older vacuum, there are probably additional items showing wear and tear. This would make it more feasible to purchase a new vacuum.

if the motor is running and you have checked airway then you may need a filter

Could be the cord, overload protector for the motor, or the motor itself.

Is the brush roll turning, if not then replace the belt. You may have a clog in the hose or in the dirt inlet down by the brush roll.

Go to sears.com and click on the parts link, put in your full model number, there you can choose the page you want to look at, then a parts list and picture of the parts will come up. You can also order the part direct from there.

You have to "help" the button depress sufficiently to allow the wand to release.

I don't have one of these, but is it possible that the new, clean bag has not been installed properly or the cover is not completely in place? Just some things to double check. If all else fails, I suggest calling the manufacturer. (Kenmore is owned by Sears)

I saw a number of fraudulent web sites pretending to have the manual when I performed a Google internet search.

Please contact Sears to request assistance so you are not deceived.

The model number on all Kenmore vacuum cleaners starts with 116 and is then followed by the important numbers.
