Neato vacum powers up but immediately shuts down and flashes the "debris caught in brushes". I have taken the brush out and cleaned it but it still does the same thing.

Hi thanks for giving me the opportunity to assist yu. I know these little ones can sometimes be a real pain. I wonder at times if the "Coolness" factor is really worth it...Then I see it just doing its thing without me being there and Im like "Heck Yeah its worth it!" I know on my Zoomba unit under the brush you should find several differnt sensors. They kind of look like masking tape! Make sure they are clean. If not they will cause your unit to continuously shut down because it thinks it full!. Give it a try. Thanks.

There is a thermal sensor in the motor which shuts power off if it gets too hot but usually it won't turn back on until it cools down. It seems you might have a defective switch

When I turn on the unit and push on the level that draws the "arm" back, it immediately shuts off. I return it to the upright position and turn it on again and repeat the process. Same thing...

seems like there is a short in the unit. it is extremely hard to find kenmore parts. i would probably just go out and buy a new vacuum. Kenmores arent worth fixing.

Vacuum turns on for 2 sec and then shuts down, full bag light on , but bag is new

This is more than likely due to a broken control valve assembly. I'm seeing quite a few machines come in for replacement of this part.
To be sure, disconnect the hose and turn on the machine. If it still shuts off immediately, or if you place your hand over the opening and it shuts off, it's due to a bad cva. If it continues running, then the problem is more likely due to a clog in the hose or the tube in the power nozzle.
Also, try replacing or removing the afterfilter and see if that makes a difference.

I have a Kenmore Progressive Upright Vacuum - Purple, and it worked just fine. I emptied the canister (like always) and put it back in place. I turned on the vacuum to it immediately shutting down (motor)...

Make sure that something didn't fall into the fan assembly in the base when the canister was removed. The motor should have an overload reset switch. Try moving the motor manually (power plug out) to make sure that it isn't bound up.

Bag light stays on, powers on then shuts off immediately. What is the problem?

first check to make sure there is a bag in the machine, if so make sure that its in securely, there is a pin switch in the bag door that wont allow the machine to turn on if there is no bag in it. If that's okay, then find the knob on the top of the machine ( in the middle of the canister ) and make sure its turned to the maximum, that is a sensitivity knob that can keep the machine from working ( in case it was clogged, but if its too sensitive it could think the machine is clogged when it really isn't ).

Turned off but won't turn back on

There is a safety switch where the front head connects to the machine, sometimes, readjusting the head will be enough.
