Most power heads use a belt to turn the brush roller. Open it up and u'll probably find the broken belt laying in there

Why did the brush roller stop spinning?


With the cleaner unplugged, turn the unit over and look inside the opening where the brush is located. Do you see the clogging of the brush with lots of hair? If so, you will need to disassemble it to remove the hair. In any case, you will probably need to take off the cover to see if there is an obstruction jamming the brush. Also, check to make sure that motor for the brush is getting power. If there is an electrical cable on the outside connecting the brush housing to the rest of the vacuum cleaner, check if it is disconnected. When you have the cleaner on, do the lights glow? Do you hear the motor running? Try the above and report back.

Kenmore upright Model 116 31912101 Brush doesn't turn. Little red reset pin doesn't move.


Something is jammed in it or the belt is bad.Turn it upside down.You will see 4-6 screws.Remove the screws and the plate they are holding.Now the brush is exposed.The belt hooks on to the brush and a small wheel on the other end.Remove the brush and belt.Make sure the area is free of debris.While you have it off,replace the belt.

I have a kenmore upright direct drive vacuum. The vacuum works fine in all ways except the brush just stopped working. Any ideas?


The rubber belt which drives the brush could be broken or the brush can be clogged with string and hair etc.

BELTLESS BRUSH WILL NOT REVOLVE


I bought my parents the exact same model. Do you have the floor select switch "ON" for the brush? Did the overload protector switch trip? There is a little red button sticking out from the right hand side of the head. Check to see if it is pertruding past the cover. If so, push button in and it should reset.

You can check for the manual at:

I would suggest checking the hoses for clogs. Especially the hose right after the carpet brushes. Don't forget to clean off your brush. Hope this helps.

Agitator wont turn


Some of these have a resetable circuit breaker, if it has one, push it. There is a motor on the brush roll which could be bad. There also is an on/off switch, it may have a problem.Also may have a switch where the hose goes into, some models have a actuator for the switch, when the hose is pushed in, it actuates the switch so the brush roll motor turns on and stops when you pull the hose out.

Kenmore 35913 Progressive


Go to sears.com, click on the parts link, enter your full model number, then scroll down and there are several options to clikc on, a parts list and picture parts breakdown are there and if a manual is available, you can get it and parts thru this site. There is a overload switch for the brush roll motor, if tripped then it won't turn. Could be that the brush roll motor is bad. The motor and brush roll are put together as one unit, but you can get the motor by itself.

Kenmore progressive Direct Drive Vacuum w/Hepa


Check the hose and dirt inlet for a blockage. Also the brush roll, check it to see if you can turn it or not by hand. If not, then something may have jammed it.
