I removed the power head and when I connected it back, it won't work. Is there a reset button?


No, you just need to clean the connections - or make certain you have a good connection.

POWER HEAD DOES NOT WORK


Hi, I have one of these. There are 2 possible reasons. 1. The fuse blew....in your manual you will see that on the power head is a button...press it is with an object like a paper clip. It resets the power head. 2. There is thread tangled in the brushes, keeping it from moving.
Make sure all is connected properly.

The light stop working and its not picking up from the head.


the power head usually has a reset button on it look for one and push it. If there isn't one, turn over the power head and then turn on the machine to see if the roller bar is spinning. If it is you can put your foot (with shoe on )against it gently and if it stops easily it needs a belt and if it isn't spinning at all it is in need of a replacement. Also be sure to check the electrical connections that go from the head up the hose and to the unit. This is where the unit gets its power for the power-head.Good luck!

The power head will not turn. I tried to reset by pushing the red reset button and nothing happened. I could not depress it.


If the button could not be depressed, it was most likely not tripped.
First, check to see that the drive belts are on the machine and have tension on the roller for the power head. Second, check to see that you can turn the brush on the power head by hand. If you can not, you need to remove it and clean it of any debris, paying special attention to the two end pieces that hold it in place. If possible, squirt a little WD40 on these end pieces to make sure they are loose and can be turned by hand. Check the connections that power the motor on the power head.
Let me know if you have any trouble and I will gladly help you further. I do not charge for my assistance.

My power head on my Kenmore canister sweeper dont work right.How do I get it apart and fix the problem?


Try pushing the reset button on the top of the power head first. There is a protection system on Kenmore canisters that protect the belt from breaking, and if something was vacuumed up into the head, it will cause this reset switch to activate to protect the belt. On the top of the power head look for the a small red button, or a grey button that says overload protection switch, and push down on it.

If the power nozzle lights are coming on, and the machine is making noise, then this means that the belt may be off inside the head, however if you're not getting any power, and the head light is not coming on, then this is probably a bad hose on the unit.

I have written a detailed repair on how to replace the belt on the Kenmore canisters on Fixya, just follow the link below. The only difference on the one I helped repair and yours may be the that the screws are actually located on the bottom of the power nozzle rather then underneath of the headlight cover. The other steps will be the same, just unscrew the screws on the bottom of the power head.

Here's the link:

Please let me know if this didn't fix it, and I'll help you walk through this further and help you diagnosis the power head further.

Thanks,

Power head not working


There is a gray button next to the red "power on" button that powers the brush unit. If the unit has tripped the reset for some reason it must be reset. This can be done by holding the gray button down for ten seconds while the unit is not running. When you power it up after this reset, the brush unit should run.
