Vacuum is not sucking. It is just over a year old.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
It sounds like you have a clogged hose or a full bag, or dirty filter. The best way to check your electric hose id to run a marble or steel ball thru the hose and if it goes thru all the way then check the bag and filter, most times it is the vacuum hose. If it id the hose you can try to pull apart the clog from both ends using another central or canister vacuum. If not and the ball stops mid way thru the hose then you can use a broom handle with a round hook on the end so that it does not puncture the hose is any place and the round hook can loosen or break up your clog and then your suction will return, if you poke a hole in the vacuum hose there are repair kits that go on the outside of the hose that will slide over the hose and then you use a heat gun and shrink the hose repair kit down to size therefore plugging the leak. (Hose repair kit). So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

SOURCE: Model 116 Kenmore vacuum cleaner. 20+ years old,

Greetings,

I believe that this is probably a Kenmore Canister vacuum cleaner, but I can't be positive. The model number 116 is just the first part, and all Sears vacuum cleaners start with model 116. There is a . after the 116 that will identify the vacuum. If you'd like me to be more model specific, or if this is an upright vacuum, please just request a clarification and I can take pictures even for you.

If this is a canister style vacuum, then you'll need to remove the foot pedal that rewinds the cord reel. There are 2 or 3 (depending on which model you have) hidden screws underneath of this pedal. You may simply pry off the pedal using a flat head screw driver. Also when you have the bag door open, you may just pull forward while it's open, and this will remove the bag door housing. There should be two screws in the front of the motor housing that need to be removed as well.

My guess from the age of the vacuum that's probably the motor that's gone. If this is the case, you probably can still get a motor if you'd like to just replace the motor inside, rather then buying a new vacuum. Typical Sears Kenmore canister motors sell for 79-120 dollars.

Again, I'd be happy to try and help you further, I will just need the entire model number after the 116. to know which vacuum you have.

Chris J.

SOURCE: agitator doesnt turn

There is actually a reset button on the agitator, I would try pushing this switch first to see if this fixes it. The button is located on one of the sides of the agitator housing, I'm not sure if it's the left or the right side, or on the top of it.

Look on the sides of the part of the vacuum that is on the floor and see if you can see a small red pole on either side. If you can't find it here, look on the top of the part of the vacuum that touches the floor for a brush overload reset switch.

Try pushing that poll whenever you find it. This switch is a protection mechanism that will shut the brushes down to protect them if something gets vacuum up inside of the brush, it will automatically shut itself off to prevent any damage.

Simply push this overload switch down, and this should hopefully fix your problem.

If this didn't, please let me know and I can walk you through some more advanced troubleshooting.

If this was helpful, please be so kind and rate my repair, or leave feedback.

Thank you!

Testimonial: "I actually tried pushing this before I posted my question. When I tried again, I realized it was stuck pushed in. I used a pair of tweezers to pull it back out and the agitator is working great. Thanks a million! So thankful not to have to buy a new vacuum!!"

Roller with brushes is not rotating although light is on and sucking sound is there. Is this a belt problem?Detached from floor part, the hand part is working fine. New filter. new bag.


Hi, it's Allie from Crucial Vacuum!

Your Kenmore vacuum brushroll is connected to the motor by two different sized geared belts. Over time, the belt's gears wear down and stretch out losing the grooves and tension that turn the roller. Another cause could be there is debris stuck on the roller and/or bearings. Changing the belts may be the solution to your problem.

Checking your unit's brushroll and clearing it of any tangled hair strands or debris that my be blocking the airway will be helpful. Follow by checking the internal hose for any blockages.

My Kenmore Progressive Whisper Belt canister vacuum is not "whispering." In fact, it makes excessive noise during operation - much more than the older Kenmore model that it replaced. I have replaced the...


Probably either bearings in the roller brush, a damaged fan blade, or the bearings in the motor. Take the roller brush off completely, and run the VAC without it. If it's much more silent, then the problem is with the bearings in the roller brush. If it's still noisy, then look closely at the fan that produces the suction, if you can. If you see any damaged blades, then you'll have to replace it. If it seems fine, then it's most likely bearings in the main motor that will have to be replaced. The bearings and the fan blade are NOT expensive parts, but the labor at a shop to change the main bearings would be kinda pricey.

A squell usually means a belt slippage, versus a broken belt. You might want to check for rubber fragments around the beater bar. But it could also mean that the rollers on the end of the beater bar are froze up.

Refer to Larryclare1's solution at http://www.fixya.com/support/t1095798-kenmore_model_116_powermate_jr_stopped It worked great for me. Replace the belt, which you can get at Sears Parts store/online and clean out the hair as per Larryclare's instructions.

The brush rollers on my hoover mach 5 won't turn. I've cleaned everything and checked the belts and everything checks out fine. I had the vacuum for about a year.


I had the same problem. The problem is the small v-belt for the roller brush (Hoover part# 38528034). Although it looks in good shape, it's been stretched too large for the idler to keep good tension. The tension on that belt varies with the handle geometry so if you slam handle all the way down the belt gets stretched a little bit each time.

BEATER BAR


The newer models have plastic end caps that will melt when the bearing heats up. This will cause the cap to go "off-centre" and the roller will vibrate badly. If this is the case, you will have to replace the roller.
If the belt is a geared drive, check the belt for any missing teeth.
