Question about Kenmore 31913 Progressive Direct Drive Bagged Upright Vacuum
None of the pictures was mine. It is an upright with bag and it is a kenmore whisperton model 116.36312691. Please tell me where I can get a manual.

The cover over the light, push in on the sides to release the tabs, then remove 2 screws. Using a screw driver, put it in the slot, one on each side, from the bottom, pry up to release the tabs, cover will come off and you can get to the belt and brush roll.

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

There are two screws. Pry off the light bar on top by pushing against the sides, and you will see them inside just behind the light bulb.

I logged into the Kenmore website, entered the vacuum model no. and found that the bag has been superceeded by 20-50004, which appears to be available only from Kenmore. The belt required is #5270.
