Kenmore vacuum - no suction, brush wont turn

Hi,
I bought a Kenmore vacuum 2 and a half years ago (Model: 721.35820500) I think its an LG. Recently it started acting up. It doesnt seem to pick up dirt at all now. I have opened it several times, cleaned the filters, cheked the belt.. but no luck. I dont think the belt is loose beause I need to pull it to mount it when I'm putting it back, but I dont know how much tight it should be. Sometimes the roller/agitator doesnt even spin and at other times it either doesnt pick up dirt or just spits it right out. The top filter on it is kinda like a thick paper cylinder with pleats all around, I have washed it also as I was advised at the time of purchase.
Sears ofcourse wants $60 to even look at it.... can someone please help....
Thanks
Uzee

Sounds like the vacuum is clogged and putting too much stain on the agitator, so I would clean out the entire passage way for the vacuum and replace the agitator belt, you must clean out all the hoses it is clogged somewhere

The burn smell means you should take it to a qualified Electrolux repair facility. It may be an electrical issue and could catch on fire if not repaired properly.

My miele titan is not turning on when plugged in. i think it might be some sort of clog? but the electric head is working... help!


Wow!, that's not typical of a Miele, especially a new model like the Titan which has been on the market for less than 2 years. If I read this correctly, your power nozzle (electric head) is working, but the main suction motor is not. Thta's usually a sign that the carbon brushes in your suction motor are stuck or too short. Again, not a common problem with Miele. A clog could cause your machine to run hot from reduced airflow and then shut down until it cools, but it would shut the whole machine down, not just the suction motor.
Is your power dial, (located just forward of the main switch and cord retractor buttons) set to minimum? If so, you just might not be getting enough suction. If, after turning the dial to maximum, you still get no suction, then you should definitely take it back to the dealer you bought it from. You have a 7 year motor warranty and a 1 year warranty on all non-wearing components. If you bought your vacuum on the internet then you can go to www.mieleusa.com and search for a local dealer. There is a 'Dealer Locator' link on the left side menu.

NO SUCTION AND CLEANING LIGHT IS NOT WORKING


You have a dirty filter somewhere. Ignore the fact that the light hasn't come on because it is probably burned out. Check the bag and any filter areas for blockages - they are there. Take the hoses off, stretch them out and run a broom handle through them to check for problems there.
