You can try to fix this problem by cleaning that filter as shown in the first image below. Be sure that you have the vacuum cleaner
when accessing internal components.
If that does not help, you will probably need to access the suction motor as shown in the second image below (with the vacuum cleaner
). You may be able to find the cause of that noise by physically examining the motor area.
If you need parts, you can order them from this page:
Kenmore Upright Vacuum Cleaner 116.35923500 Parts
. As noted above, be sure that you
unplug the vacuum cleaner
before accessing internal components.
I hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.
If you get to a point where you need to have a service technician examine and repair the vacuum cleaner, you can carry it into your nearest Sears Repair Center or Sears Store. Here is a link for the Sears Service website that has information on repair locations in your area:
