The cover over the light, push in on the sides to release the tabs, then remove 2 screws. Using a screw driver, put it in the slot, one on each side, from the bottom, pry up to release the tabs, cover will come off and you can get to the belt and brush roll.

The shaft on the motor
Posted by tsnater on Jun 10, 2008
The shaft on the motor for rotating the brush is not moving. It is a Kenmore Whispertone 12 V Model 116 3521290.
I am suspicious of the Belt Protection system.
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It sounds to me that you have a motor that is froze up and would be in need of some type of service, whether it be the fan(s) on the end of the motor, the carbon brushes are sticking and bound up, or the armature would be the last thing. Just be careful that the repair cost and labor do not exceed the cost of a new motor. The motor shaft should @ all times should spin freely. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Greetings from GoVacuum,
I wasn't able to find the manual for the Kenmore model, however I did find the instruction manual for the corresponding Panasonic canister vacuum cleaner. Your particular Kenmore model is actually made by Panasonic for Sears, and then Sears puts the Kenmore name on the vacuum cleaner. They are identical internally, and have the same parts and components, besides the filter that is behind the bag. Sears makes Panasonic put a specially designed filter in the Kenmore's so that the customer has to go back and purchase that filter from Sears.
To download the instruction manual, please visit the link below;

You can also find a parts schematic of the power head below if you need to purchase parts;
