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.

Kenmore vacuum cleaner model no. 116. 5861279 belt replace


Do you need the belt or the directions for changing the belt? Sears Parts Direct has the manual for the 116.58612790 here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Vacuum-Parts/user-manuals/manual-downloads/Model-11658612790/0582/0640500?modelNumber=11658612790&diagramPageId=&documentId= . The direct link to the manual is http://c.searspartsdirect.com/mmh/pd_download/lis_pdf/OWNM/L0802691.pdf . See pages 14-15 of the manual.

To replace the belt, you need to remove the light cover and then the light bulb. Press in the sides of the cover and lift to remove it. the bulb needs to be pushed in and then turned couter-clockwise. Remove the cover screws. Then flip over the Power Mate and use the flat blade screwdriver to release both tabs. Turn the Power Mate back to right side up and press on the handle quick release pedal and lower the swivel. Tilt the cover forward until it snaps free. Carefully, use your screwdriver to pop the brush supports free on both sides to remove the brush. Slide off the old belt. (If needed, slide off the brush supports and washers. Clean the brush before reassembling the unit. Then replace the brush supports and washers.) Push the belt on motor drive and then onto the brush sprocket. Push the brush supports back into place on the base. (Make sure that this isn't assembled upside down.) Then line up the front of the cover with the base and tilt the cover back into place. Press firmly until you hear both sides click into place. Replace the cover screws, light bulb and bulb cover.

The belt is available here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/Kenmore-Vacuum-Parts/742024/0020/116/Model-11658612790/0582/0640500.html . This is part number 5285; it's the direct replacement for the original 742024 belt.

I hope this helps.

Belt


You probably need a phillips screwdriver to Remove the screws on the bottom of the vacuum and pull the brush bar out _ the belt is wrapped around one end of that and anchored to the vacuum - put new belt on and replace cover on bottom by replacing the screws.

Power Head keeps cutting in and out while vacuuming???Canister motor keeps running but the power head starts and stops like there is a short or some loss of connection somewhere. Any ideas?


The electrical terminal at the top of the extension wand may be loose or corroded. Unplug the vacuum and remove the wand from the hose assembly. Look at the 2 prongs and clean off any corrosion using a a Q-tip or scrape with a screwdiver if it's more persistent. After cleaning reconnect the wand to the hose and try it again. If the prongs are not corroded, they might be loose instead or they might not be aligned properly. If this is the case then bending the prongs very slightly may help realign them. The part that may be giving you the trouble is called the terminal cover (PN 8191782). It costs about $10 but the problem is knowing the procedure to actually replace the part. CAN ANYONE EXPLAIN HOW TO OPEN UP THE EXTENSION WAND TO REPLACE THE TERMINAL COVER ??

How do I replace the belt on my Kenmore canister vacuum?


Turn the power brush over so the bottom faces up. On the bottom there are two access screws. Remove the two screws and then the top cover can be removed from the base. With the top cover off you can access the belt. You can get a replacement belt for your model here:

How to open a kenmore powermate vacuum to replace belt


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.
