116 is only part of the model number. On most model the answer is no but not knowing your model I can't say for sure

Open the hood, bag #20-50557 , the cardboard part goes in the bag holder, will only fit in one direction, then close the hood.

If it is a burning rubber smell it may be the belt slipping. Make sure your brushes are clean and spin freely and then put the belt back on and see if that helps.

We have a Kenmore Progressive Model 116 Upright bagged vacuum with Hepa filter. It's at least a couple years old. For quite some time now when ever we use the vacuum the vacuum motor will shut off nafter...


I suspect that you have a restriction. The motor sounds like the thermal break is stopping the motor before damage, due to heat.
You must witness that the entire suction and discharge side are clear. This is not always very easy, but necessary. I bet that you find something blocking somewhere...

Will not turn on


I would start with replacing the cord end. Especially if you have had it for a few years.

Model 116 hose clog?

Model 116 hose clog?
Posted by rfrazelle on Jun 23, 2008
My old canister model 116 followed with numbers 2839580 marked Kenmore 3.9 with power-mate, worked fine until the bag got overly full. I have changed the bag, cleaned the filter, and removed a nasty hair/fur/dust clog :-p from the lower metal tube of the power mate. It now has very weak suction and won't pick up anything. I suspect a clog in the grey plastic flexible tubing attached to the canister but cannot get it apart. Advice?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Kenmore 22313 Bagged Canister Vacuum. The best way to find a clog in an electric hose is to use a steel ball or a large marble to place inside the hose and to let it so threw as far as it can to determine where the hose clog is. Once you have determined where the hose clog is then you can use a small end of a broom handle of take an old wire coat hanger and place a hook on the end and try to pull the clog out of the electric hose – the electric hose is very expensive so try not to damage the hose in any way, shape or form. Or another way is that id you have another canister vacuum you can try to pull the clog apart by using two vacuums turned on and running. If you are successful then run the round marble or steel ball thru the hose again and the clog should be cleared.
