Question about Kenmore 23612 Progressive PowerMate Bagged Canister Vacuum
There is suction but it seems the mortor won't turn the belt for
the beater bar
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.

WHAT CAN BE THE #1 PROBLEM WITH ALL POWERMATE ATTACHMENTS THAT MANY ARE NOT AWARE OF IS THAT THERE IS A FUSE BUILT INTO THE TOP OF THE WAND HANDLE. THE PART # FOR ALL THESE MODELS OF KENMORE POWERMATE'S IS 8191782, AND ONLY COSTS $9.49 FROM SEARS.COM PARTS. THE ONLY OTHER PROBLEM IS KNOWING HOW TO REPLACE IT.
