I think the belt is off or broken in the cleaning head, but need to get it apart and don't know how


It appears to be the same cleaning head on my model # 116, if so, there are two phillips screws underneath that must be removed. Also remove the two phillips screws on the collar above the head where the wand tube enters. Then there are four plastic retention clips that can be released with a flat head screwdriver. When lifting twist the collar assy that remains on the cleaning head to allow the top plastic cover to come away from the cleaning head. Once off, th brush and belt are easy to access.

Cant open roller assembly roller not spinning i dont see anything in the way


Turn the power head over so the bottom is facing up. On the bottom towards the back there are two holes (one on each side) where you can get to the access screws. Remove the two screws (you'll need a phillips screwdriver). With the screws removed you can now remove the top cover from the base by pulling out on the two clips on each side of the power head. With the top cover removed you can get to the belt and roller brush. If you need a belt for this model you can get it here:

Kenmore Powermate power head not working


I've got the same problem. Try checking out the electrical connection where the hose attaches to the canister. The hot male terminal is corroded and the female socket is burned out. Its an unfortunate design flaw that every time you open the vacuum to replace the bag the electrical connection disconnects and reconnects. Not sure if I can find replacement parts for a 10 year old vacuum or if a home-made re-wiring job is in order. Will find out tomorrow.

My power head on my Kenmore canister sweeper dont work right.How do I get it apart and fix the problem?


Try pushing the reset button on the top of the power head first. There is a protection system on Kenmore canisters that protect the belt from breaking, and if something was vacuumed up into the head, it will cause this reset switch to activate to protect the belt. On the top of the power head look for the a small red button, or a grey button that says overload protection switch, and push down on it.

If the power nozzle lights are coming on, and the machine is making noise, then this means that the belt may be off inside the head, however if you're not getting any power, and the head light is not coming on, then this is probably a bad hose on the unit.

I have written a detailed repair on how to replace the belt on the Kenmore canisters on Fixya, just follow the link below. The only difference on the one I helped repair and yours may be the that the screws are actually located on the bottom of the power nozzle rather then underneath of the headlight cover. The other steps will be the same, just unscrew the screws on the bottom of the power head.

Here's the link:

Please let me know if this didn't fix it, and I'll help you walk through this further and help you diagnosis the power head further.

Thanks,

How can I access the roller belt in Kenmore Powermate 116 53313305? with no screws. Does the entire black half separate from the blue half?


If there are no screws on the underside (like mine) you need to remove the top light cover. There are tabs on either side that need to be pressed in so it pops out. Under the light cover there are two screws located in the center. Remove those and the blue and black components should come right off.

Power head for Kenmore Canister Vac


Another potential problem for the increase in difficulty in turning the beater bar (drum) could stem from extremely dirty bearings, located at each end of the beater bar. I've seen hair knotted up to the point it chokes the bar and significantly reduces its ability tpo turn.
