The easiest solution would be to call your local Aerus/ Electrolux representative, because the corporation doesnt publish diagrams.

SOURCE: Brush won't spin when position of handle changes

The belt for this machine is very specific and only one size fits. It is not uncommon for vac shops to sell the wrong belt because the proper belt is not available from normal supply houses, so they will substitute something they think will work.

Also, assuming you do have the right belt, check the tension arm that drops down on the v-belt when the handle is brought back. This arm has a wheel/bearing with a plastic "tire" or trim that rolls on the belt to tighten it. Sometimes, this tire cracks and falls off and then the remaining bearing won't have the necessary tension to tighten up the belt.

I need to replace the actuator pivot arm on my Hoover Wind Tunnel to fix the self propel feature. I can see where it needs to go but I can not seem to get the cover off the vacuum so I can get to it. How do I do this?

I tried what reddevil6 suggested and was not able to get Sears to produce a manual. I would prefer an online manual but at this point I'm desperate enough to try anything.

How can i get my upright kenmore vacuum cleaner to move to the vacuum position?


Don't know your brand vacuum but if I understand you correctly the solution should be pretty straight forward unless the lowering lever is broken somehow. Usually there is a foot lever on the left, or sometimes the right, toward the rear part of the base to push with your foot. Step on it while at the same time push it slightly forward first - just a quick 1" forward motion, then pull it toward you. That SHOULD disengage the handle to be able to vacuum freely.

My Kenmore progressive canistor vacuum has a loose electrical conection in the hose handle. How do you take the handle apart?


There are 3 visible screws there in the handle and one not so visible.

start by removing the 3 visible screws.
Take a flat screwdriver and pry off the colored portion of the handle that would contain the switch.
There is one more screw in the handle just in front of the switch, remove that one.

This is where it gets tricky.

under the handle between the handle and the hose, is a little square shaped pry area that is locked. Use the same flat screwdriver to get at that and release it. The rest of the handle should come apart pretty easy now.

Good luck.

My kenmore quick clean vacuum cleaner has no suction. Just seems to blow the dirt out and away from the cleaner. The canister is empty and the filter is clean, so what's going on?


Hi,
The hose or hoses are plugged...take all the hoses apart and stretch them out... run a stiff wire through them or something like a broom handle...you will find that they are full of dust and dirt inside...

I have had this vacuum for about 3 yrs and nothing but issues with it. It's been in the shop already once and it needs to go again. No power in the power head. A wheel came off of the powerhead too .. keep snapping it back on but it always comes off.
I am disgusted with this vacuum

Failed telescoping tube lock. Will not release


It is stuck because it is full of gritty dirt. Like the guy said, don't force it, get a bigger hammer.

Serioiusly, you can use a hammer to tap along the handle to loosen the gritty dirt and probably get the parts to release.

Wish to remove bottom ofpowerhead-Kenmore Progressive 11629912990


I have a whispertone vacuum, different model #, but maybe instructions will be the same. Turns out I didn't need a new belt, just clean out the crud and reset overload protector. The instructions in the manual tell you to remove the light cover and bulb first. To do this, press in and lift both sides. Push in and turn bulb counterclockwise to remove. (you need to do this because the next step involves turning the unit over). This takes you to
Step 2. Unscrew the cover screws ( on either side of bulb).
Step 3. Turn unit over. To remove cover, insert screwdriver at cover tabs on both sides and twist to release tabs.
Step. 4 Turn unit right side up. Press handle release pedal and lower the swivel. Tilt cover forward from back until front snaps free.
Step 5. Carefully insert and twist screwdriver at each brush support to free brush from base.
Step 6. Remove worn belt.
Step 7. Slide brush supports off to check and clean brush support areas.

To replace belt: slide washers and brush supports onto brush assembly.
Install new belt over motor drive, then over brush sprocket.
Snap brush supports into place on base. Be sure brush supports are not upside down.
Line up front of cover and base. Rest cover on front edge of base. Tilt cover to back. Press cover firmly until side tabs snap into place. Replace cover screws, light bulb and light cover.

Motor goes on and off briefly at regular intervals


Sounds like you may have a bad or loose connection, could be one of wires in the hose to the handle harness or the harness itself may be causing the problem. Also be the motor or relay causing a problem.

Kenmore 23513 canister vacuum won't turn off


Is there two switches for the unit, one for the handle (pick up unit) and brush assembly, and one for the vacuum motor? If so it seems that the handle unit is o.k. but the problem may be the switch to the vacuum motor. I would suggest testing the vacuum motor switch with an ohm meter for continuity through the switch. If its at fault replace it. You can probably purchase one from Sears or maybe Radio Shack.
Good Luck!
p.s. do not work on vacuum if plugged in.
