check the reset button on the brush assembly which is also called the power mate. if not then take it to your local sears repair center. if it is the pc board. sears has them in stock. I think it is about $7 for the part.

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.

SOURCE: Kenmore Model 116 upright beltless vacuum, agitator will not turn

I had the same problem. The agitator stopped turning after I sucked up a foreign object (my wife's watch) and it got jammed in the intake. After removal of the watch the agitator did not spin when turning on the machine, and the reset button never deployed (it remained buried in its housing and would not depress with a paper clip). The agitator was not bound and I could manually move it in both directions with ease. Faced with prospect of paying $125 or more for a repair, a good sharp kick to the chassis from the top promptly fixed the problem. I have found that kicking malfunctioning electronics often works.

My purple proggesive kenmore upright motor works but beater not beating help thank you


I just had the same problem - reset button didn't trip - cleaned the roller - ultimately found there is an override switch at the point where the hose attaches to the base of the vacuum - it disables the roller when you use the attachments. The hose had become loose (but not disconnected) enough to trip the switch. An easy fix after alot of tinkering... p.s. All those "experts" that said to change a belt obviously don't understand that this model is beltless...

Vacuum will not shut-off


if it has a foot pedal flick it a few times and see if it goes off.if its a switch unplug the vacuum and move the switch from on to off real fast a few time.if you have any contact cleaner you can try to spray a little into the switch while unplugged and work the switch back and forth a few times .the switch might just be dirty.if you don't hear a click when you turn it ioff and on then the switch is probably bad.please leave feedback.i hope i was some help to you

Vacuum won't come on


The switch in the hose maybe bad, motor problem, or some of these cannisters have a relay mounted by the motor, it may be bad.

On/off switch needs repair


you don't have to repair the switch. your vac may have a relay inside the canister which may be defective
