Question about Kenmore 23612 Progressive PowerMate Bagged Canister Vacuum
Opps!!! Lost manual. I wish to remove the bottom of the powerhead of my Kenmore Progressive canister vacuum to remove the power brush to really scrub and clean the brushes, check the belt...etc...
Power Head: model number: 11659912990
Kemore vacuum: model number:11629912990
p.s. I looked at the bottom of the Power head and saw a notification: ''insert screw drive here...'' I think I'll wait for further instructions....
Thanks A Bunch for any help!!!!!!
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.

On the Kenmore powermate the cover over the light can to be popped off, the directions for the base and brush removal are on that plate. Basically you take out the 2 philips screws and then the bottom can be pried off easily with a twist of the screwdriver. For easier removal and detailed cleaning the rubber around the base can also be taken off. The directions indicate it's necessary to put a flat head scewdriver between the bearing and the base to remove the roller.
