Sometimes a motor will get a stuck carbon brush. Remove the motor from the machine and spray it around the carbon brushes with lectra motor cleaner. Do this outside FYI. This is a CRC product.
Next try hooking it up to a pair of leads, gator clips etc.. than you can plug into an electrical outlet to test it before reinstalling it. If it pops and sputters your motor is gone. PS Kenmore parts run 150 percent of outher brands so when you go to replace it maybe look at a manufactures brand directly. IF you can not disassemble the machine you can tap with medium force around the motor housing with a rubber mallet. Plug the machine in and turn it on while you tap the housing. Sometimes you will hear the motor come to life as the brush is knocked free.

SOURCE: Kenmore direct drive will no longer self-propell

There may also be a reset button. If the brushes get stuck the unit can shut off power to the brushes to keep a total melt down from occurring. The reset button should return power in these types of vacuums.

I had the same problem with my vacuum. I called in for technical service and was told to push the "reset button". It turns out that there is a small red button right next to the dirt indicator light. I pushed the button, plugged the vacuum back in and started it up and it worked like a charm! :) Hope this helps!

SOURCE: In Carpet setting, the vacuum brush does not spin

I put 3 turns of electrical tape around the area of the beater bar that meets the vacuum belt. This solved the problem short of replacing the beater bar.

SOURCE: motorized brush bar not turning on Dyson Vacuum

Apparent common failure is that either the thin yellow and or blue motor drive wires that run from the LH side of the vacuum where the "control board" is located down into the hinge / ball area become stretched and then fray and eventually break. Happened to my Dyson twice. First repaired under warranty, second took about 20 minutes. You need a Torx screwdriver to remove the LH panel ( 4 screws) and also an access panel (2 screws) at the side of the ball which permits access to the blue / yellow wire connectors. I replaced with a new wire and connectors having fed the wires through the access hole making sure sure enough wire was available for the movement of the handle. Also ensure that when the covers are replaced they do not trap any wires underneath.

Kenmore intuition bagless suction problems


The flaw is in the design. The roller on these things will go bad on you eventually as the roller motor is incorporated into the roller itself rather than being belt driven. To seal against hair and dirt from getting into the roller bearings there is felt around the surface of the roller towards the end, this felt looses its shape over time and lets the hair get in and do its damage. I have had to replace the roller twice and am not looking for solutions to replace the felt with something a bit more sturdy.

Hi, i have a panasonic eco max, the brush has stopped going round, the belt is as new and brushes clean.suction good from hose. Any ideas please? thank you


The brush on this model is controlled by the on/carpet/floor switch and will only work in the carpet position. If the suction motor is running then it could be the roller brush motor, but it's more likely to be the microswitch which stops the brush motor when the handle is returned to the upright position.

Brissell proheata 2x doesn't have suction or the red brushes won't rotate on the hand tools?


Check the brushes for hair or some other clogging material and remove it. If the brushes can't spin freely, there is not enough suction power to make them spin.

My Sanitaire vacuum is not picking up well - works ok on floors but not on carpeting


Depending on the model you may have a single or two motor system. If it is not running well in carpet mode but still has suction check to see if the brush for the carpet head is turning. If not look for a red reset switch or spin the brush when the vac is shut off. It it spins freely the belt is either broken or badly stretched and needs replacement.

My vacuum has good suction but i can hardly push it across my carpet. any answers????


is your brush roller turning,that would cause it to be hard to push .the brush roller helps it walk across the floor.if your brush roller isn't turning then your belt is broke or the brush itself siezed up.unplug the vacuum and try to turn the brush roller .if it turns real free then your belt is broke.before you replace the belt always clean the motor shaft ,the old rubber from the old belt melts onto the motor shaft .if you don't clean it your new belt won't last very long.please leave feedback
