Question about Kenmore 23612 Progressive PowerMate Bagged Canister Vacuum
When I turn the vaccum on, the motor sounds like it is winding down and there is a burning smell
If the noise is coming from the canister motor, you probably have bad motor bushings. I had the same problem, replaced the motor and all was fine - only for one year. The problem is back and is due to the fact the motor is very high speed (to get good suction) and should be made with bearings, not bushings. I will not be repairing a second time as a $70 motor annually is a bit pricey, and yes it will get VERY hot. I will buy a new vacuum - not another Kenmore.

Make sure the belt is ok.
Check and make sure that you are not clogged
