How do you replace the belt on the pet power paw vacuum


1. Pry off adjustable clear cover with flathead screwdriver.
2. Unscrew 2 Philips screws holding power paw together.
3. Place tips of needle nose pliers into the two holes on each of the black round pieces on the ends of either end of the roller. Twist and the black pieces will release.
4. Remove roller, use needle nose pliers or awl to dig out any hair wrapped up in the roller or especially the ends of the roller at the metal pins.
5. Replace belt and put everything back together in the same order you took it apart.

Kenmore InteliClean 116.35923502 Two, I believe unrelated, problems. 1) The InteliClean sensor lights stay amber and red even when the machine is in the upright position and the suction line is...


I had the same problem with the amber inteliclean light continually on. I found the problem to be in the plastic housing that connects the suction hose to the back of the upright section. You have to remove three screws and gently pull the hose housing off the vacuum. Inside I found a hairy clump that was caught on the inside of the hose. The optical "dirt sensor" is just inside the fitting on the upright section. When dirt or other stuff blocks the optical path of the sensors, the amber light will illuminate. My vacuum had an uneven cut on the hose which caused a snag point for hair, dirt and debris. Once this was removed, the vacuum worked like new.

Regarding the roller, this unit has an integrated motor in the roller. I would guess that you will need to take it apart, and hopefully only clean it up. If you need bearings, that will likely be expensive.

See were to put the swr driver on both sides and not sure where to pull up


Hello,

I'm pretty sure you're asking about a Kenmore canister vacuum,

Here's what you'll need to replace a belt on a Kenmore2_bing.gif canister vacuum:

- Phillips Head Screw Driver
- Flat Head Screw Driver

There are two different types of belts2_bing.gif that are used on a Kenmore Canister. One of them is called a cogged belt, which has little teeth on the inside of the belt. The other is called a serpantine belt, which looks like a car belt, and has little grooves on the inside of the. You'll be able to tell which on yours takes after opening up the power nozzle.

This is the Cogged or Geared Belt with little teeth inside the belt:

This is the other Serpantine Belt that has little grooves on the inside of the belt:
Kenmore Canister Serpantine Belt for Canister Vacuums

Here's how you can replace the belt on your Kenmore Canister vacuum cleaner2_bing.gif. First, before taking apart the power nozzle to change the belt, try pressing the overload protection system reset switch. This overload protection feature is designed to shut off the power nozzle if something gets stuck in the brushes, to prevent the belt from breaking.

Step 1. If you're power nozzle is a square shaped nozzle like the nozzle that I took a picture of above, then you'll need to first remove the headlight cover before you can access the roller brush and belt. Simply squeeze both sides of the headlight housing, and while squeezing, lift upwards with your fingers exactly where my fingers are located in this picture:

Step 2. After the headlight cover has been removed, you'll see two screws underneath of the headlight cover, directly in front of the neck of the power nozzle. You'll need to remove both of these screws. I have circled these screws in red:

Step 3. After both of these screws have been removed, turn the power head upside down, so the roller brush is facing upwards. You should see writing that points to an area to put your flat head screw driver. You'll need to put the flat head screw driver down inside of the nozzle, and pry the top blue housing from the black bottom housing. Here's where the screw driver should go on the left side0723429.jpg:

Here's a picture of the screwdriver prying off the right side:

Step 4. Now turn the power nozzle back over on top, and remove the top housing of the nozzle. You may have to push the handle release pedal in order to take the top housing off.

How do you open the power head to remove the beater brush on a kenmore 116 canister? I have a piece of twine wrapped around the end of the beater brush


Greetings,

Thank you so much for that clarification, I know the exact model of Kenmore that you have now. This model is actually made by Panasonic for Sears who puts the Kenmore name on it. I wasn't able to located the Sears owners manual, but I did find a Panasonic model that uses the same power nozzle as yours does. I will also explain how to access the roller brush below, and if you'd like to see diagrams of how to do it, you may visit the link below to the Panasonic owners manual. Start at page 46, then go back to page 40.
http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/MCCG973-MUL.pdf

In order to access the roller brush on this model, here's what you need to do. Underneath of the headlight cover, there are two screws that need to removed first. In order to get to these screws, simply push on both sides of the headlight cover, and lift it straight up while pushing both sides. After the headlight cover has been removed, you'll be able to visibly see the two screws that need to be unscrewed (phillips head screw driver). Remove these two screws next.

After the screws have been removed, turn the power head upside. If you look at both the left and the right sides, you'll see a little indentation on each side. All you need to do is put a flat head screwdriver in these indentations, and pry up on both sides. This will remove the top housing. Once you have top housing removed, you'll see there's one more cover that goes over the roller brush. There are two tabs on both sides behind the roller brush. If you squeeze these two tabs, you can now remove the white colored housing that covers the brush, and have full access to the brush.

I hope that this helps you remove the twine from your beater bar. If you found this repair helpful, please be sure to rate it by clicking the thumbs up icons in the top right hand corner. If you have any other questions about how to repair this, please feel free to request a clarification, or add a comment to the repair, and I'll be more then happy to help you.

Thanks very much,

Chris Jones
