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.


Hello,
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.

SOURCE: owners manual for kenmore power-mate # 116

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;

How do I change the bag in a Kenmore Whispertone 300


Read the instructions.
My new replacement bags have the instructions right one one side of the bag itself. or if you have the book read the instructions.
Mine is a Kenmore Whisper tone but not 300 so I won't pass on my instructions but my bags fit different Whisper tone Vacs.

Kenmore model 116 58015700 power mate beater bar stops working


Just pulled mine apart and the bearing on the belt side is toast. In the past five years I have had several items fail due to less then optimal bearings. Including a transmission in a Vibe and a front load washing machine.

The power head of my 1165581590C Kenmore Power mate Whispertone 12 amp vacuum won't open. It is an older model and it desparately needs a clean!


I am not 100% sure of the model number but most of their powerheads come apart quite easily if you know how. There is a light lens cover on the top of your powerhead. On each side of this cover there is a little clip that holds it in place. You can usually see that spot by simply taking your thumb and pushing the light cover to one side or the other. Place a small flat head screwdriver in that slot and gently pry upward.

Once that cover is off, you will see two screws. Remove those two screws. Now simply grab each side of the cover towards the bottom and back of the nozzle and pull out. This should release it from the base. It will lift from forward from back to front..

Reassembly is pretty easy. Just reverse the instructions.

Let me know if this helps.

I just need to get the power head apart to replace the belt. The two side tabs by themselves don't release the plastic...it is still firmly attached in the middle.


Look for a few screws under the machine, they will probably have Philips (star) heads. Remove these and the power head should come apart so you can access the belt and pulleys.
