Kenmore Q-Style HEPA vacuum bags are easy and quick to replace - just take the full bag out of the vacuum cleaner, and put a new vacuum bag into the vacuum.

Thanks to the bag mount (part of Kenmore canister vacuums) and the bag collar (integral part of the Kenmore Q Style vacuum bags), Kenmore Q Style vacuum bags are properly positioned with ease.

However, if unsure about replacement procedure, please check the manual of your vacuum cleaner.

Q-Style HEPA disposable cloth vacuum bags can be found in packages containing 2 (Kenmore 53291 Style Q HEPA Cloth Vacuum Bags) and 6 (Kenmore 53292 Style Q HEPA Cloth Vacuum Bags) bags - larger package do cost more, but individual bags are cheaper.

Note: there are several compatible non-OEM Kenmore Q-Style vacuum bags on the market. Although such disposable vacuum bags are cheaper, their air filtration are not as good as air filtration of original Kenmore's vacuum bags.

Since Q-Style vacuum bags are very important for achieving required level of air filtration in the Kenmore canister vacuum cleaners, it is very important to use OEM vacuum bags.

Kenmore Q-Style vacuum bags are replaced when they are full or when Check Bag Indicator (if present) is turned ON or when the user notices that the suction is decreased.

Since these bags have very fine pores, it is possible that vacuuming of very fine dirt clogs the vacuum bag, before it actually become full. If that happens, replace the bag with the new one despite the old one not being entirely full.

Note: Kenmore Q-Style vacuum bags are usually distributed in resealable nylon bags in order to prevent any type of contamination before the vacuum bag is actually being used. When replacing the old bag, take the new one out and reseal the nylon (transport) bag to prevent contamination of the remaining vacuum bag(s).


Long Story Short: If you have Kenmore canister vacuum cleaner that uses Kenmore Q-Style HEPA vacuum bags, be sure to get the OEM vacuum bags and replace them when they are either full or start to become clogged due to the very fine dirt particles.

Since these vacuum bags are very important for proper air filtration, it is very important to use original Kenmore Q-Style vacuum bags.
