Question about Kenmore 35912 / 35913 Progressive Upright Vacuum

3 Answers

Kenmore 35923 beltless brush not working after rolling up shlace.

Kenmore Progressive with beltless drive, Handi-Mate Jr, model: 116 35923500. The lace was on a shoe so it stopped the brush. I have pressed the reset, and taken the brush out and used a volt/ohm meter to see continuity through the reset switch and brush motor terminals. The brush make a "jump" as a disconnected lead was reconnected to it's terminal on the brush motor (this was done when the power cord was unplugged). Made me think the component mounted in the brush motor rubber end casing could be a capacitor. I'm not sure what that component is or if it is working properly. With everything reassembled, the vac motor runs, the brush can be turned by hand, but it is not being turned by it's motor. Please, what is the fix for the brush?

    The air flow filter had nothing to do with the brush not turning, There was no "clog", just a shoe lace on a shoe that had stopped the brush when it wrapped around it. I blow off my ten bucks because the li'l woman just showed me that the brush does not turn when the vac is in a upright position, but does when the handle is lowered for use. Machine83 keep this in mind in case you should come across another idiot who thinks he can figure out a machine or his wife.

Its due to the grip of the brush and the motor not getting fit its became little bit like streched so this happens and in this case replacing the brushes and checking any other component broken near to it is necessary.

 take out the air flow filter at the back of the vacuum and turned it on, somehow the clog cleared will get cleared . Then  put the filter back in and it will work  perfectly.

On the side of the brush itself should be a rubber belt to drive the brush itself.. it is broken

    I stand corrected..there is no actual belt... is there any resistance to turning the brush by hand when the vacuum is off ?

Why did the brush roller stop spinning?


With the cleaner unplugged, turn the unit over and look inside the opening where the brush is located. Do you see the clogging of the brush with lots of hair? If so, you will need to disassemble it to remove the hair. In any case, you will probably need to take off the cover to see if there is an obstruction jamming the brush. Also, check to make sure that motor for the brush is getting power. If there is an electrical cable on the outside connecting the brush housing to the rest of the vacuum cleaner, check if it is disconnected. When you have the cleaner on, do the lights glow? Do you hear the motor running? Try the above and report back.

BELTLESS BRUSH WILL NOT REVOLVE


I bought my parents the exact same model. Do you have the floor select switch "ON" for the brush? Did the overload protector switch trip? There is a little red button sticking out from the right hand side of the head. Check to see if it is pertruding past the cover. If so, push button in and it should reset.

Kenmore vacuum model 25614 power mate will not reset


What you see from the outside is usually a pop up button which sits on top of the actual internal switch remove the lid of the power mate as though you are cleaning the brush roll or changing the belt. Then test the reset internally. Post back to advise .

I have a kenmore progressive direct drive handi mate jr. upright vacuum. My daughter used it last night to vacuum up some cat litter that had spilled on the floor. I went to use it today and it turned on...


its probably clogged up with cat litter.might have gotten into the motor.your motor has a motor guard inside if it. when it overheats it will shut down till it cools off.you need to clean all th cat liter out of it.and clean the filters.with a direct drive you might want to take it in to a repairman to sevice. its not a shop vac i advise you not to pick up things like cat liter

My handi-mate Jr. is not spinning anymore. What should I do to fix it?


Assuming you don't have a broken belt, you can pretty much completely disassemble the Handimate and clean it out, which should fix "it won't spin any more." Part of the cleaning procedure is pretty obvious - there are tabs on the side that hold the top onto the bottom. Just lift the side flaps on the top section that surround the tabs to release the top section. Pay attention to how the thing is put together so you can reassemble it - there aren't many parts - it's not rocket science. Now the part that's not obvious: it's not too hard to pull the axle out of the cylinder to which the brushes are attached. Gunk, hair and fibers can get caught under the white end caps and around the axle.
