Did you make sure to cut all the strings, hair, etc. out of the brush attachment on the bottom? Look in the corners too to make sure none has gotten stuck on the sides that needs to be cut out.

check the reset button on the brush assembly which is also called the power mate. if not then take it to your local sears repair center. if it is the pc board. sears has them in stock. I think it is about $7 for the part.

Check the hose and dirt inlet for a blockage. Also the brush roll, check it to see if you can turn it or not by hand. If not, then something may have jammed it.

I would suggest checking the hoses for clogs. Especially the hose right after the carpet brushes. Don't forget to clean off your brush. Hope this helps.

Power is on and running but there is no suction at all and peformance light is on


did you check to see if it was stopped up something could be clogged in the hose. carefully Try running a broom handle or stick throught the hose making sure there is nothing like a dirt clog in there. also if you have a filter you can clean it out because this will cause the vacuum not to have any suction I just take mine outside and put it in a plastic bag and bang it on the ground a few time to get all the dirt out. I also use an air compressor to blow out the filter every once in a while.

How do you get the cover off the vacuum so i can have access to the motor?


If you are trying to get to the motor and not the bag Sears repair people have a special tool to remove the rubber seal and if you try it your self you will end uo ruining it or stretching it and if it does go back together when your done it wont seal properly and therefore it wont have sufficient air flow.

You have to take off the top of the power nozzel that has the light lense. There are two pressure locks,one on each side. Use a screw driver to release. You will see the screws.Take the two screws out and on some models, there are two pressure locks on the back of the nozzel. Again use the screw driver to release. The top should come right off.Hope this helps.

Which side should face me (black or white) when I put in the CF-1 replacement filter?


The white side is filter media and the black side charcoal. The black side should be the side that the air flows out of and the white the side that the air flows into.

The beater won't turn


Un-plug the vacuum.

Turn the vacuum cleaner over and pop off or unscrew the bottom plate. The most common things are broken belt, clogged beater bar (usually hair), bad beater bar bearings, or the beater bar and belt is just plain worn out and needs replacing. If the brush nubs are very worn, replacing the belt alone won't help much.

Clean as much debris, hair etc as possible out of the unit. If you have a can of air like the type used to clean computer key boards, blow out the area and the motor if possible. Do this in a ventilated area or somewhere where it will not mess up your house.

Need new power brush


Get the number off the power head, it should be on the bottom, then go to Sears.com, click on the parts link, put in the complete model number, a parts list will come up and you can order your part.
