Question about Kenmore 25512/ 25513 Progressive Canister Vacuum

The belt in the PowerMate won't run

When I plug in the vacuum, the unit turns on. I have appropriate suction throughout. However, the belt does not turn the roller brush. I have completely removed all hair, fuzz, and anything else that may restrict the roller. Could the motor in the PowerMate be shot? If so, should I just replace the entire vacuum?

If the motor on the floor attachment runs, it could just be a worn belt - it can be replaced. Also check the switch to turn the attachment on, and the electrical connections in the hose and wand from the vacum all the way to the attachment. An electrical meter could be used to check for power at the motor in the attachment also - just be careful. Here's the instruction book, in case it's of use.

    Not sure if this posted... there's also a reset button on top of the attachment, I believe, so make sure it's reset :)

Why I have no suction


Hi, it's Jim with Crucial Vacuum!

If your vacuum is lacking in overall suction there are several places you can check to help your vacuum operate at its peak performance.

First thing to check is the brush roll and belt. If the brush roll isn't spinning try rotating it manually to help unclog any hidden debris. Your vacuums belt stretches out overtime and lessens in tension. Make sure your vacuums belt is on your brush roll nice and tight. Without these two parts functioning properly your vacuum will have poor, or no suction at all.

Empty your units dust cup, or change out the bag if necessary. When you allow dust and debris to sit in your vacuum it leads to clogs throughout your unit. Avoid this by changing out your dust cup after every use.

Another area to check for clogs, which may be effecting your vacuums suction is the hose. Stretch out your hose fully to see if any debris are stuck. If there are any clogs that are hard to reach use a broom handle to unblock it.

I installed the Hoover Wind Tunnel Central Vac in my new home. After connecting the wall outlets and successfully turning on the system from the hose control, I discovered there is lots of air flow t


I would recommend checking your wall outlets where the hose plugs in for any type of clog in the tubing. If the vacuum itself has great suction but when you go to the wall outlets that is probably something in the hose that is stuck. If cleared it will most likely have excellent suction throughout the entire system in the house.

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.

Belt needs fixed after sucking up a soft rug.


if its a canister model there probably is no belt just suction.open the canister and if it has a bag feel the bag ,if it feels kind of hard then the bag is full.take the tool off the end of the hose and turn it on to see if you have suction if you do then the tool is blocked up.take it to the sink and run some warm water through it and maybe use a little brush to clear out the dirt.full bag will cause your vacuum not to have suction or not as much as it should

Vacuum doesn't ****


Assuming the unit (motor) runs ok and since it used, you may need to disassemble it and check the suction right at the motor. Sometimes there is a filter screen in front of it that can plug. The motor impeller could be partially obstructed or dirty, reducing the vacuum force. The bag should be the correct one for the unit or suction can be lost if it doesn't fit correctly.

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.

Burning smell


I had burning smell and some visible smoke which I tracked down to the handle area. The mains socket at the bottom of the handle had burned out. When I pulled the plug out I noticed that the prongs were blackened and scorched. I will replace the socket.

Dirt devil mvp not sucking


Could be bad filters, is there suction at the end of the hose. That will tell you which direction to start looking. If no suction at hose end, then filters could be the problem. If you have suction, then the problem is down lower, dirt inlet is clogged, if belt has never been changed, then I am sure it has stretch to the point that under load it doesn't turn like it should. Could even be that although the motor is running, it may be running at a slower speed, in which case it would have to be replaced.
