Question about Vacuums

The canister motor will not come on but the power mate motor does. Is there a reset button/circuit breaker for the canister motor? There was a clog but that has been resolved. Bag and filters are new.

There is no reset button. You've fried the motor. If both the power nozzle and canister motor didn't work, one might suspect a fuse.

Rainbow pn-2e circuit breaker


The circuit breaker could be defective.

The power nozzle is not working and the belt seems to be in place. The motor is running fine and I can use other attachments


There are a few problems with this head which we frequently encounter.

One, the motor get's clogged up and the brushes get stuck in the motor.
The red top circuit breaker fails, and under load, the motor will stop.

Take the 2 wires off of the breaker in the power head, and short them together to find out once you have cleaned out the motor which will be a mess inside.

The belt if worn will not operate the power head if you put your foot on it and see if the brush spins.

The belt is a major problem as well as the replacement of the motor.

The motors are 45.00 CAD and belts 4.00 Cad.

The yoke on the power head also gets clogged and needs cleaned out.

Try these procedures and I hope all works out for you!

Need instruction to replace circuit breaker for Rainbow E series..


The factory has stopped using the circuit breaker in the power nozzles. Reason is that it is redundant as you can turn power nozzle off with the trigger in the handle if you get something caught or have an issue. Just wire all the leads together and bypass the reset button.

Power nozzle suddenly stopped working (no power or vibrating). Can these be repaired or should I just buy a new one?


Hello. Check out your reset button located on the top of the power nozzle. It is either black or red. Turn the cleaner on, and while running, push in the reset. Voila! It should be working again. The reset is put in the vac to protect your power nozzle motor. You have a geared belt that is driven by a circuit breaker protected motor. This way, if there is an overload on it, it will shut off, allowing you to clear it and reset it. I hope this helps! Have a good day.

Kenmore 3.9 with power-mate Model 116 2839581. Can't locate screws to allow cover removal for access to motor


You have to take off the top of the power nozzel that has the light lense. There are two pressure locks,one on each side. Use a screw driver to release. You will see the screws.Take the two screws out and on some models, there are two pressure locks on the back of the nozzel. Again use the screw driver to release. The top should come right off.Hope this helps.

Electrolux vacuum power bar not turning


First thing is to push the circuit breaker button(reset button). If that dosen't work, check the belt. It could be broken.

Riccar 1700 power nozzle wont turn on


Make sure the 'Power brush' switch on the contol panel on the hose is depressed. Check the circuit breaker on the power nozzle; it will either be a button or a breaker that looks like a rocker switch, try to reset it.
Is the power nozzle motor running but the brush just isn't turning? If so you may have a broken belt. Not a likely solution since the belt is a lifetime belt, but still remotely possible.

Model 116 hose clog?
Posted by rfrazelle on Jun 23, 2008
My old canister model 116 followed with numbers 2839580 marked Kenmore 3.9 with power-mate, worked fine until the bag got overly full. I have changed the bag, cleaned the filter, and removed a nasty hair/fur/dust clog :-p from the lower metal tube of the power mate. It now has very weak suction and won't pick up anything. I suspect a clog in the grey plastic flexible tubing attached to the canister but cannot get it apart. Advice?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Kenmore 22313 Bagged Canister Vacuum. The best way to find a clog in an electric hose is to use a steel ball or a large marble to place inside the hose and to let it so threw as far as it can to determine where the hose clog is. Once you have determined where the hose clog is then you can use a small end of a broom handle of take an old wire coat hanger and place a hook on the end and try to pull the clog out of the electric hose – the electric hose is very expensive so try not to damage the hose in any way, shape or form. Or another way is that id you have another canister vacuum you can try to pull the clog apart by using two vacuums turned on and running. If you are successful then run the round marble or steel ball thru the hose again and the clog should be cleared.

Rainbow SE power nozzle


If the brush is spinning ok, and the belt isn't slipping, then probably the circuit breaker is bad, or the motor is causing the problem.
