SOURCE: I have a Kenmore Canister Vac. I need to replace

Try forcing a flathead screwdriver between the flange (tab) on the hose collar and the tab on the swivel assembly itself, taking care not to gouge the wires. Saw one solution where they used 2 screwdrivers simultaneously; couldn't do that, but did loosen one side at a time.

Kenmore Powermate power head not working


I've got the same problem. Try checking out the electrical connection where the hose attaches to the canister. The hot male terminal is corroded and the female socket is burned out. Its an unfortunate design flaw that every time you open the vacuum to replace the bag the electrical connection disconnects and reconnects. Not sure if I can find replacement parts for a 10 year old vacuum or if a home-made re-wiring job is in order. Will find out tomorrow.

Wheel is sticking. I want to remove the wheel to clean the axel. kenmore 116.27514700


Hi,

Thanks for the clarification. This is actually fairly simple to remove the rear wheel, however as you'll see after this has been removed, there really is no axle attached to this. It just snaps into the main canister housing. It may be that your wheel has broken, and a new wheel may fix your problem.

First here's a link to the parts shematic for your model so you can follow along:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getSubComp.pd?modelNumber=11627514700&productCategoryId=0642000&brandId=0582&brandDescription=KENMORE&modelName=VACUUM-CLEANER&diagramPageId=00001&componentDescription=CANISTER&documentId=P0706048&blt=06

Simply put a flat head screw driver behind the brush, and pry it off. It will easily come right off. You may inspect the wheel, and the wheel housing that it snaps into to make sure there are no obstructions, or pet hair that are slowing the wheel down. Also look at the clips that hold the wheel in place to make sure there's no debris above the clips on the wheel that could slow down the brushes also.

If it all appears to be fine, you may spray some WD40 on the part of the wheel that spins, reinsert it back in the vacuum cleaner and test to see if that fixes it. If it didn't, you might just want to purchase a new wheel assembly.

Here's a link to the rear wheel for Kenmore canisters if you'd like to purchase a new one from our website:

Hopefully that helps you. If you have any questions about how to repair this, or other questions that I did not address, simply just add a comment as you did last time, and I'll be more then happy to answer any and all of your follow up questions.

If you found this repair helpful, please be so kind and rate my repair, or leave feedback. This is really appreciated, and one of the reasons that Fixya repair professionals continue to post free repair advice on Fixya.

How do I replace the belt on my Kenmore canister vacuum?


Turn the power brush over so the bottom faces up. On the bottom there are two access screws. Remove the two screws and then the top cover can be removed from the base. With the top cover off you can access the belt. You can get a replacement belt for your model here:

If you push inwards on each side of the light cover on top you can remove it. With the light cover removed remove the (2) access screws. Now you will be able lift of the entire top cover from the base. You will then see the belt and roller brush, remove the old belt and replace with a new one.

Kenmore vac producing burning odor


It sounds like you have bad carbon brushes on the motor. Get replacement brushes from a local vac shop, and take the unit apart. On each side of the motor their is a retangular piece of plastic with what looks like magnets in them. In most cases they are simply held by 2 screws. Replace these brushes and reasemble the unit. If the problem persists you have burned out the comutator on the motor and the whole thing must be replaced.

Kenmore canister hose


The part number for the hose is 4370993, you can go to sears.com, put int he part number and order it. You will only get just the hose, you have to take the ends off of the old one and put them on the new hose.

How to open case??


I don't know this vacuum personally, but i'll take a stab at is. You're off to a good start prying around. There is most likely a coupld of screws holding things together somewhere. Check around the bottom and sides for holes where phillips screws may be lurking.

Hope this helps. Please rate this accordingly.

Good luck!
