Kenmore vacuum cleaner model no. 116. 5861279 belt replace


Do you need the belt or the directions for changing the belt? Sears Parts Direct has the manual for the 116.58612790 here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Vacuum-Parts/user-manuals/manual-downloads/Model-11658612790/0582/0640500?modelNumber=11658612790&diagramPageId=&documentId= . The direct link to the manual is http://c.searspartsdirect.com/mmh/pd_download/lis_pdf/OWNM/L0802691.pdf . See pages 14-15 of the manual.

To replace the belt, you need to remove the light cover and then the light bulb. Press in the sides of the cover and lift to remove it. the bulb needs to be pushed in and then turned couter-clockwise. Remove the cover screws. Then flip over the Power Mate and use the flat blade screwdriver to release both tabs. Turn the Power Mate back to right side up and press on the handle quick release pedal and lower the swivel. Tilt the cover forward until it snaps free. Carefully, use your screwdriver to pop the brush supports free on both sides to remove the brush. Slide off the old belt. (If needed, slide off the brush supports and washers. Clean the brush before reassembling the unit. Then replace the brush supports and washers.) Push the belt on motor drive and then onto the brush sprocket. Push the brush supports back into place on the base. (Make sure that this isn't assembled upside down.) Then line up the front of the cover with the base and tilt the cover back into place. Press firmly until you hear both sides click into place. Replace the cover screws, light bulb and bulb cover.

The belt is available here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/Kenmore-Vacuum-Parts/742024/0020/116/Model-11658612790/0582/0640500.html . This is part number 5285; it's the direct replacement for the original 742024 belt.

I hope this helps.

Bissell powerforce brush won't turn when powered


Hey, you may want to have check if the brush turns by hand without the belt in place. If the brush doesn't turn manually, you'll need to replace the brush.

Here's a quick link to the BISSELL website to assist you.

Shark SV736R motorized brush won't rotate


The 2 metal pins of the motorized brush are not in contact with the vacuum cleaner. or the Motorized brush is clogged up. You have mentioned that it is cleaned, but still give a thorough inspection. For the metal pins, firmly insert the motorized brush into the air-intake nozzle. This will connect the motorized nozzle to the unit power supply.

Roller won't turn,


Refer to your owner's manual on how to replace the belt. You have a broken belt if the vacuum is working fine but brush roll isn't turning. Either that or you have an option on your vacuum to turn the brush roll off???????

When i try to use the reset button on my kenmore progressive vacuum, it is having no effect. The agitator brush still will not turn.


Take the time to check to see if the belt that drives the brush is operating correctly. I would also see if the brush itself is frozen up and unable to move. You need to remove the brush in order to change the belt. It would be a good time to clean the brush of all debris and add some WD40 to the plastic tabs at the end of the brush. Add the WD40 and turn the tabs around the brush to make sure the turn freely. Reassemble with a new belt.
If you find this solution to be beneficial, a Thumbs Up rating from you would be appreciated. Paul

Wish to remove bottom ofpowerhead-Kenmore Progressive 11629912990


I have a whispertone vacuum, different model #, but maybe instructions will be the same. Turns out I didn't need a new belt, just clean out the crud and reset overload protector. The instructions in the manual tell you to remove the light cover and bulb first. To do this, press in and lift both sides. Push in and turn bulb counterclockwise to remove. (you need to do this because the next step involves turning the unit over). This takes you to
Step 2. Unscrew the cover screws ( on either side of bulb).
Step 3. Turn unit over. To remove cover, insert screwdriver at cover tabs on both sides and twist to release tabs.
Step. 4 Turn unit right side up. Press handle release pedal and lower the swivel. Tilt cover forward from back until front snaps free.
Step 5. Carefully insert and twist screwdriver at each brush support to free brush from base.
Step 6. Remove worn belt.
Step 7. Slide brush supports off to check and clean brush support areas.

To replace belt: slide washers and brush supports onto brush assembly.
Install new belt over motor drive, then over brush sprocket.
Snap brush supports into place on base. Be sure brush supports are not upside down.
Line up front of cover and base. Rest cover on front edge of base. Tilt cover to back. Press cover firmly until side tabs snap into place. Replace cover screws, light bulb and light cover.

Check the brush roll ends, make sure they turn freely, if not then replace it. The belt may look ok, but they stretch after a short time and should be replaced.
