The problem almost certainly is that the axle of the brush in your power bar has dirt/fluff in it that is preventing the belt from turning it so that the fuse in the power bar clicks off after 2 or 3 seconds. It is fairly easy to fix. All you will need is a Phillips screwdriver and about 15 minutes. Follow the following steps

1. With the power bar disconnected from the vacuum, turn it upside down and you will see two inset screws at the rear side of the base of the power bar. Unscrew these two screws using your Phillips screwdriver.

2. With the power bar in the same position unlatch the two plastic tabs at the rear of the power par. [It may be useful to flip up the metal bar that you see on the base to use as a handle] On each side of the base you will see an arrow saying insert screwdriver here to release. Insert a screwdriver and lever the plastic of the base slightly apart from the plastic of the side. When you have done this for both sides the base should lift off.

3. Now lift the brush including the two end pieces straight up. It should just slide up. You will need to unhook the drive belt from the brush as you lift it out.

4.Pull of each end piece and clean the dust, lint, hair off the end piece and from inside the end of the brush.

5.Once clean, reinstall the end pieces on the brush. Hook the belt back over the brush to its original position and slide the brush back into the power bar.

6. Reinstall the base by hooking the tabs from the front of the base into the small openings on the power bar.then push the base down until it clicks back into place and the tabs are back in their original position. Reinstall the two screws you removed earlier.

7. The power bar should now work. Good luck.

How do i fix the brushbar on my vacuum cleaner there are three switches - power switch , brushbar switch ,and reset switch ,the latter does'nt seem to click ,should i replace this one


make sure you're getting power to the brush bar switch. If so there is a micro switch that activates the brush bar when you pull the handle back into the vacuuming position. Make sure that micro switch (in the ball assembly) is getting power from the brush bar switch.

How do I get to the belt on a Kenmore vacuum cleaner, belt on a kenmore elegance canister,


Take it to you local vac shop for service. If the belt is broken there is another problem. Those belts are not supposed to break. The machine has a circuit breaker. If the breaker didn't function properly and caused the belt to break, you will likely just break the new belt.

Vacuum will not turn on


Kenmore Model 116, behind the Vacuum cleaner there is a Motor Reset switch which you need to press.
1. Make sure the Vacuum Cleaner is unplugged.
2. Press the reset button gently in with a pen.
3. Plug back the Vacuum cleaner and it should work.

Kenmore upright vacuum model 116.35923500. not rotating when on. Easy way to clean without taking apart?


There is a switch that tells the cleaner that the upright is locked upright and the beater bar won't spin until you depress the foot release and tilt the cleaner. This switch mount is poorly designed, its just sitting in a pocket at the pivot of the cleaner. I had to double stick tape it in the pocket to keep it from moving around and put silicone spray on the pivot. The pivot actuates the switch, but its a bad design.
  • Remove front cover, to do this, pull out the bag, remove the screws under the bag and on the outside. 12 screws total.
  • Locate switch on pivot
  • Confirm mounting of switch, re-adjust and use tape or epoxy.
  • Reassemble and test.
  • This is for a Kenmore 35923500 upright direct drive.

Power brush not working well


You probably have a worn belt that drives the beater bar... 2 year old belts with reasonable use are more than likely due for a replacement. You should be able to get a replacement drive belt from Sears and change it yourself.. The baseplate of your power brush seperates and should provide access to the beater brush and drive pulley system.. Hope that helps..
