You have to take the light cover off (push in at the bottom on each side) and there are two screws.
Some models have pressure locks on the back of the power nozzel cover. Just use a screw driver.

SOURCE: Need to check belt on a Kenmore WhisperTone powermate vacuum

There are two screws. Pry off the light bar on top by pushing against the sides, and you will see them inside just behind the light bulb.

Depending on which model, there is a couple of scres on the bottom, then on each side and back are release catchs that you pry up to release the top, then you can get to the belt. The other model you take off the light cover, it just snaps in place, then you can take out 2 screws from the top, on each side there is a slot, put a screwdriver up into the slot and pry out to release the tabs, then the cover comes off and you can get to the belt.

SOURCE: 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.

Kenmore canisteer vacuum model 116 52513202 belt replace. I can't get the top cover off the powermate to replace the belt.


If you remove the headlight cover you will find two screws that need to be removed, than flip the power nozzle over and you will find a little catch on each side of the cover, if you pull or pry the cover out a little the cover can be removed from the nozzle housing.

How can I access the roller belt in Kenmore Powermate 116 53313305? with no screws. Does the entire black half separate from the blue half?


If there are no screws on the underside (like mine) you need to remove the top light cover. There are tabs on either side that need to be pressed in so it pops out. Under the light cover there are two screws located in the center. Remove those and the blue and black components should come right off.

The beater won't turn


Un-plug the vacuum.

Turn the vacuum cleaner over and pop off or unscrew the bottom plate. The most common things are broken belt, clogged beater bar (usually hair), bad beater bar bearings, or the beater bar and belt is just plain worn out and needs replacing. If the brush nubs are very worn, replacing the belt alone won't help much.

Clean as much debris, hair etc as possible out of the unit. If you have a can of air like the type used to clean computer key boards, blow out the area and the motor if possible. Do this in a ventilated area or somewhere where it will not mess up your house.
