SOURCE: Kenmore Model 116 upright beltless vacuum, agitator will not turn

I had the same problem. The agitator stopped turning after I sucked up a foreign object (my wife's watch) and it got jammed in the intake. After removal of the watch the agitator did not spin when turning on the machine, and the reset button never deployed (it remained buried in its housing and would not depress with a paper clip). The agitator was not bound and I could manually move it in both directions with ease. Faced with prospect of paying $125 or more for a repair, a good sharp kick to the chassis from the top promptly fixed the problem. I have found that kicking malfunctioning electronics often works.

SOURCE: My Kenmore canister vacuum (model

Your motor in the canister part of your vacuum is bad you can by a nee one for about $84..They have them used on ebay for $40. just type in Kenmore 116. The reason why your agitator is working is because your agitator has a separate smaller motor. You can replace the motor yourself. Thanks if you have anymore vacuum questions or any more electrical problems come to me.

Agitator wont turn


It could be one or more of a few causes. Easiest to check is the belt and/or brush roll. There are two switches for the brush roll. Both must be working properly. One is by the main power switch and the other is in the motor compartment. If the problem still persists check the brush bar motor in the power nozzle assembly

Vaccum seems to cut off after short use like its hot,,once it cools off i can use again


Check filter. Clean if needed. The filter should be cleaned when it appears dirty. Simply remove filter, rinse thoroughly under warm running water until clear, then allow to thoroughly air dry. The drying is very important. Additional filter cleaning instructions are on page 13 of the manual.
Check the pleated exhaust (HEPA) filter. If dirty, cleaning is necessary. Instructions for removal and cleaning are on page 14 of the manual.
Check hose, wands, and power nozzle for blockages.
Hose: detach at both ends. The ends of the hose are the most common areas for a blockage. Check visually and clear as much as possible if present. If not visible, hold one end up and drop a coin in. Lift the end until the coin falls through. If it doesn't, there's a clog.
The easiest way to unclog a hose is to use an air pressure hose, or a canister vacuum that has an exhaust blower that the hose can be held too. If enough pressure, it will blow the dirt out. Make sure to put a plastic bag around the loose end to hold the dirt.
Visually check wands and power nozzle. The bend in the power nozzle connection is another common place for clogs. A wooden spoon handle, or similar blunt object, can be used to push the debris back toward the brush to clear a blockage here.

If none of these are the problem, contact a vacuum service center, preferably Hoover, for assistance.

I have no suction with my Hoover Mach 5 vacuum.


I had a similar problem. Two things to try. There is a lock symbol on the canister you need to ling it up with the mark on the top (the silver part has a line on it). It can be assembles 3 different ways. Also I over looked the sticker in the back of the canister compartment indicating a filter in the top of the canister compartment. There is an orange lever there to release the filter. Hope this helps.

Vacuumed with power nozzle one day working fine took attachment off to use crevice tool reattached power nozzle and no power whatsoever.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Rainbow E Series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum. The Rainbow Power Nozzle does have a reset button on the newer model on the top of the power nozzle, just push it and it should reset, or check all your pigtail connections to make sure they are connection and the cord leading to the actual Rainbow Vacuum itself. Out in left field might be that the power nozzle motor could be shorting out or not working or dead and might be in need of replacement. Check the cord for any frays or bad connections. If you have a problem please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area. 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.

Thanks, Don the Vac Man
