SOURCE: Kenmore Elegance Upright Bagged Vacuum Belt Broken and Smelling

It sounds like the brushroll has caused your belt problem and will be the cause of your burning smell as well. What commonly occurs is that carpet fiber,hair,string, thread,etc got wound around the brushroll and some will get caught in the end caps which is where the bearings are.The end caps need to be removed and cleaned so that the bearings can allow the brush to rotate freely.Check that there is no melting of the end caps or the base plate where the end caps fit into the machine._Good Luck

Kenmore 116 Progressive Canister Won't Run

In the canister there is a fuse wire, also a circuit board that could be bad, I would check the fuse wire first. If the motor has a thermo protector on it, it may be open. The switch asm. in the hose handle could have gone bad.

You can to and click on the parts link, enter your model number, then scroll down, you can chose which page you want to look at. It will bring up a parts page, scroll down and you get a picture breakdown. You can also order parts thru the site.

Need a model number to be sure, but alot of the Sears cannisters have a relay and it is found mounted in the motor comparment, it may be sticking in the on position.

Kenmore canister model 116.25512 won't start

Sounds like you have a switch problem. Some of the Sears models also have a relay in them, which could be bad. The complete model isn't stated so couldn't look it up. But you can go to, click on parts, enter your complete model number and a parts list with diagram of parts will come up.
