SOURCE: I have a Kenmore progressive cannister vacuum cleaner.

There should be a pile height pedal on rear of the attachment, just behind the where the wand goes into it, near the handle release pedal. Just keep clicking on it to go through the height settings.

Please rate if this helps :)

SOURCE: Kirby vacuum height adjuster is stuck in high

Remove the nozzle and remove the front wheel shaft. Take these 2 screws out.

When doing so - watch for the spring that is under the top pedal, do not let it fly out of window. If you will find that shaft is bent buy and install a new shaft (you can find all parts HERE). You may try to straighten it but usually it doe not last long - wheel ***** falls off and you have to buy new shaft anyway. If shaft seems to be ok - clean old grease and dirt, lubricate well the pedal teeth and assemble everything back. This should solve the problem. Occasionally spring may be broken but this happens very rarely.

Good Luck,
Rocky

SOURCE: vacuum height won't go on low carpet setting.

Make sure you're not trying to adjust w/ handle in upright locked position because thewre is a cam which raises the vacuum head a little bit when handle is locked in upright position. If this is not the problem, turn vacuum upside down with handle in unlocked position and power cord not plugged in(for safety reasons obviously), unscrew and remove 3 screws that hold belt/beater brush assembly cover in place(2 are in corner near ends of beater brush and 1 is towards motor housing) tilt end of cover with 1 screw up and remove cover(there are 2 tabs at beater brush end of cover). Right above this is the height adjustment assembly with 2 rollers, raise up the assembly gently and using your finger or a bristle bottle brush,etc. make sure there is no debris caught between the height assembly and the hose(you will understand when you see it), if there is no debris you can now see the pattern on the bottom of the height adjustment knob and the lobe that rides on it, just check to make sure nothing is broken and/or missing, hope this helps!!

How to change height adjustment on kenmore canister power-mate?


My powermate has a little pedal on the bag of the beaterbar housing that you press all the way down with your foot and then release. Each time you press down it changes the height from 'xlo' to 'lo' to 'med' to 'high' and then it starts over again.
See the attached picture

The beater brush will no longer drive under a load on short pile carpet


Have you tried changing the height adjustment? There should be a knob or lever that allows you to adjust the height of the beater brush to accommodate different carpet lengths. Even with a new belt, the brush will not spin if the height is too low. Try adjusting it all the way up, then while it is running, adjust it down until there is some resistance. The beater brush should just barely scrape the top of your carpet.

Can I fix the high, medium, low level switch on vacuum piece?


The height adjustment lever on Kenmore Power Nozzles is one of the machine's weak points. It's not well made as far as being protected from dirt and dust and moisture. It's always easier to move these things when the vac is on it's side or at least with the front end in the air. That takes the pressure off the adjuster. The mechanism may need nothing more than to taken apart in the presence of a good air compressor which can be used to blow out any of the aforementioned debris.

Need belt 38528- brush belt


belts will stretch when they slip. There no adjustments on beater-bars. The way to prevent this is to have a height adjustment to be high on high pile and low for low pile rugs.

My brushes wont turn once the vacum is on the carpet.


If they are turning when they're off the carpet, then you have the brush height setting set too low. There should be a dial somewhere near the brushes, some say things like "high" to "low" or "high pile" to "low pile." Turn it one notch towards high/up and try it again, and keep turning one notch and trying until the brushes turn. You want them as close to the carpet as you can get them without them stopping. If this doesn't fix it, you have to be more specific as to whats going on.

Agitator stops when sweeper is pulled backward


If you have made no changes to the vacuum's setup and are using it on same carpet you have previously used it on with no problem, then the most likely cause is the agitator/beater bar's drive belt is worn or on some models may have a tension adjustment which is set too loosely. This can also be caused by having the vacuums height adjustment set to low for the carpet or flooring you are using it on, causing to much drag when the vacuum is pulled backwards for the agitator to overcome.

The vast majority of agitators turn in a forward direction, as if it would pull the vacuum forward, when you pull the vacuum backwards the drag is increased.

So...First check height adjustment (a no cost fix), then check out the tension adjustment (if present on you model, some engage when top of vacuum is tilted back after stepping on the release pedal) Lastly, consider changing belt especially if you have had the vacuum awhile or if it gets a fair amount of use or it you seem to need to use it on a low height setting all the time to vacuum up debris.

Hope this helps!
