Question about Kenmore 25614 / 25615 Progressive Bagged Canister Vacuum
My vaccum sucked up a ribbon while vaccuming. i stopped the vaccum and pulled the ribbon out. when i restarted the vaccum it smelled like it was burning and the brush on the bottom was not spinning. also, there was no suction so it was not cleaning.
Hey guys: just hit the little red reset button,but only after you cleaned out the brushes.

Yes the burning smell is caused by the belt,so change it. also check each side of the brushes. there are bearings on either side. you may be able to pull them off and clean them out. next check the filters. if they are clogged then you will have poor suction,so change them. the other clog might be in the hose. you will have to snake it out. if you can't do it with ease then the hose will have to be taken apart. both ends of the hose can be taken off. if you are going to try this,first start with the end which goes into the canister. the other side of the hose is harder and care has to be taken or it will break off--------------BY GETERDUN

I had the same problem. First I disconnected the hose that attatches to the top of and bottom back-side. Make sure it is not clogged. Mine was clogged so I used a wire coat hanger and carefully pushed all the junk out. also I turned the vac over on its front, took the metal plate off the bottom, and dug out any extra stuff that I saw. you would be suprised how much hair and junk gets caught. Then I put it back together and replaced the bag. It worked like new for me. Hope this helps.

Check Belt - if your vacuum has a hose check it for suction --(make and model - canister or upright?) If belt is broken it does not matter how much suction you have - you need aggitation to clean carpet. Ralph email@example.com

Need a new belt -- you might have suction but you need the brush to spin (hard to help without make or model, upright or canister)

SOURCE: vaccum has no suction
Here is what we did to fix the problem of our vacuum having no suction.
We unscrewed the three screws on the back and took the hose off of the vacuum. Then we took the hose outside and put the water hose through the vacuum hose and turned on the water. After about 30 second the water pushed through a dust bunny the size of a fist and a marker. Basically, the vacuum did not have suction because the hose was clogged with dust, etc. After reassembling the vacuum, it worked just fine.
