SOURCE: Kenmore Model 116 upright beltless vacuum, agitator will not turn

I had the same problem. The agitator stopped turning after I sucked up a foreign object (my wife's watch) and it got jammed in the intake. After removal of the watch the agitator did not spin when turning on the machine, and the reset button never deployed (it remained buried in its housing and would not depress with a paper clip). The agitator was not bound and I could manually move it in both directions with ease. Faced with prospect of paying $125 or more for a repair, a good sharp kick to the chassis from the top promptly fixed the problem. I have found that kicking malfunctioning electronics often works.

    Kenmore upright vacuum model 116.35923500. not rotating when on. Easy way to clean without taking apart?


    There is a switch that tells the cleaner that the upright is locked upright and the beater bar won't spin until you depress the foot release and tilt the cleaner. This switch mount is poorly designed, its just sitting in a pocket at the pivot of the cleaner. I had to double stick tape it in the pocket to keep it from moving around and put silicone spray on the pivot. The pivot actuates the switch, but its a bad design.
    • Remove front cover, to do this, pull out the bag, remove the screws under the bag and on the outside. 12 screws total.
    • Locate switch on pivot
    • Confirm mounting of switch, re-adjust and use tape or epoxy.
    • Reassemble and test.
    • This is for a Kenmore 35923500 upright direct drive.

    Kenmore progressive/direct drive-- roller stopped turning


    We have the same vacuum & had the same problem. As the vacuum ages & the hose is periodically removed from the nozzle to use with the attachments, the white switch, adjacent to the nozzle connection, wears. If the hose is not fully reinserted or if the attachment notches are inadvertently aligned with the white stitch, the agitator may not work reliably. Assuring the hose is fully inserted, with the locking notches away from the switch has eliminated this problem with our vacuum cleaner.

    Replacing Power Cord Kenmore Progressive Upright


    That actually sounds correct, if it's the model I'm thinking of. As long as you're talking about connecting to the wires that are held in by the wire nuts you should be good to go.

    Getting suction to use attachments


    When the vacuum is in the upright position, it should give you suction thru the hose.
