Question about Kenmore 25512/ 25513 Progressive Canister Vacuum

Agitator on kenmore 36622 seized up

I've just had to replace the agitator on this kenmore model for the third time in 1 1/2 years. Even if it's kept relatively clean it seems to eventually stop working and seizes up. It cannot be fixed and has to be replaced at nearly $40. Is there a problem with this model? I didn't see it stay on the market for very long. I never had a problem with past Kenmore's.

Kenmore actually doesn't make very many of their own products. Typically their vacuums are privately labeled by Panasonic. I don't want to get into trouble for saying something bad, so I'll just say I wouldn't consider Panasonic a best buy anymore.

Next time you're ready to purchase, you might take a look at Miele Canisters. They are a German family owned business, and they have hands down the best vacuums on the market and outstanding customer service. Or you may consider Riccar which is an American company that has an awesome reputation for quality and customer service. Just something to think about.

Kenmore intuition non-turning beater bars, beltless model


When you press the reset button does the vac motor start but the bars do not turn? If so the drive belt may be broken that drives the bars. If so you will have to replace the belt. If the motor does not start it is possible the belt could be jammed or the motor seized or burnt out. If it's not very old check to see if it's still under guarantee.

Motor smells like it's burning. Upright Powerline Model 5847. Have kept filters clean and cut entangled hair from the rollers. Have had vacuum for about 5 or 6 years.


The burning may be coming from the roller drive belt if the roller is jammed due to debris build up or has seized roller end bearings. Remove the roller and belt and examine both for damage. The roller, without the belt, should spin freely by hand. Replace the belt if it has a burned spot as it will fail shortly. Hope this helps.

Kenmore vac won't shut off, blowing heavy air from vent


For the stack of problems you have, it sounds like it be best for you to ditch it and get a new vacuum. The heavy problem sounds like a motor issue. The burning smell is most likely from the belt being loose on the power head.

Economically, you should just get a new one instead of replacing the whole system guts

Motor on our kenmore progressive agitator is not


Look for a reset button on the motor and press it in. If it clicks, then it was tripped. An excessive load on the motor can make the reset trip. Try turning the motor shaft to make sure that it is not bound up. Run the machine empty for a short time to see if it works. Good luck!
