Question about Kenmore Progressive Bagless Upright with Inteli-Clean SystemVacuum

1 Answer

Kenmore bagless upright Model # 116.35726401

My vacuum just stopped working completely. It will not turn on. I've tried several different outlets in the house and made sure there were no circuit breakers tripped. There's a new filter in it and not a lot of dirt I just emptied the canister. How can I troubleshoot this problem?

Thank you,
L

There is actually an internal fuse in the vacuum. You may have blown this. The circuit board connected to the ON/OFF touch pad may be bad too but probably unlikely. There is also an overheat sensor that trips the vacuum off when it gets too hot. This could be bad preventing it from coming on too. All of these solutions, require you to open the vacuum to fix.

i had a similar thing happen and just got off the phone with dyson. there is a resettable switch on the handle. they told me to start the vacuum in the upright position, put it in the non upright position, then push and hold in the beater bar switch which is located next to the on/off button for 10 seconds and the beater bar should start to function once again

I plug my vacuum in and turn it on and nothing happens. checked different outlets and still the same problem.


Check the following:

- The handle may not be installed properly, causing a loss in the power connection. Remove the handle completely. Slide the handle back into place on the lower section of handle and tighten the screw.

It electrically stopped- no blockage or horrid noise just won't work! About 4 years old - and yes I have changed the fuse. Any answers?


have an electrician check the switch on the vac. probably went bad. also look for broken wires or connections.

you have tried a different outlet, right? also inspect power cord for any damage.

The roller brush at the bottom of the vacuum is not spinning, hence it isn't picking up the dirt. I am unable to find a way to access it so that I can see what is stopping it from turning. Can you help me?


Hello. uUsually when the roller brush stops spinning the belt is broken. TIp the machine upside down and look for several screws which hold the bottom together. Mark the location of each screw when you remove it as different lengths are common and replacement in the same hole is vital. Joe

My vacuum (Eureka Bagless Model 2961 AVZ) will not START!


Had exactly the same problem with my upright Eureka Model 5893 bagless. Eventually, the handle would get hot, and finally it just quit. When handle was disassembled, the wires were melted and it was toast. Ordered a switch after talking to several repair men. Talked to Eureka, too, and they were absolutely no help. Cheap wiring and switch made in China. Good luck trying to find a switch. vacuum-depot.com has switches, so you might try there, but make sure you get the 3-prong switch (same switch used on Eureka's Genesis). It is Part #27871.

Bissell won't turn on


the motor could be ceased up. do you hear a buzzing noise? if you dont hear a buzzing noise, turn it on for about 1 minute, unless it starts smelling hot or starts smoking. if nothing happens after that, try replacing the power cord.

Kenmore 33721 does not start


Same thing happened to me. After taking the cover off I noticed a wiring diagram on the inside cover. There is a fuse between the on/off button and the motor, sure enough the fuse had blown. There is no mention of a fuse in the manual! The vacuum works great again.
