I by accident sucked up the corner of a sheet into the powermate of my vacuum. I turned the vacuum off and pulled out the sheet but now the powermate is no longer working (suction works fine) Is this...


These power heads have a kill switch on them. Not exactly clearly labeled.

the kill switch reset button should be on the right side of the unit as you look down like you are using it. you may want to try pushing it with the power to the power brush on. Upon resetting the button there, the power
head should start no problem.

Good luck with that.

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.

i would look to see if there is a clog. that would be the only reason that the power head would be spitting dirt in back of the power head. check the hose.

the problem could be with the power head itself or the hose providing the power. If you can turn the unit on from the handle, then its not the hose and you need to get a new power head..

Power head for Kenmore Canister Vac


Another potential problem for the increase in difficulty in turning the beater bar (drum) could stem from extremely dirty bearings, located at each end of the beater bar. I've seen hair knotted up to the point it chokes the bar and significantly reduces its ability tpo turn.

Vacuum will not turn on


Kenmore Model 116, behind the Vacuum cleaner there is a Motor Reset switch which you need to press.
1. Make sure the Vacuum Cleaner is unplugged.
2. Press the reset button gently in with a pen.
3. Plug back the Vacuum cleaner and it should work.

No power to head of Kenmore Progressive canister vac


The extension wands are defective and have trouble with their plug connectors on each end. The power head has a reset button on top right but no lights mean no power which means the wand isn't connecting the power to anything.

Sears has a new replacement -- too bad it isn't recalled so you could get it for free ($106.59 + tax + shipping). 2nd sweeper -- same problem.

1st sweeper: I just took needlenose pliers and pulled connectors out a little further (Too bad I can't seem to make the 2nd sweeper work with this easily. It might be one of the connectors or the wiring harness inbetween with a break.) Can't buy the wiring harness for this or connectors, just the wand.

If anyone has a working wand you want to sell me email me at hiwhatsnew@hotmail.com. Thanks!

Kenmore Progressive 25614 vacuum


check the reset button on the brush assembly which is also called the power mate. if not then take it to your local sears repair center. if it is the pc board. sears has them in stock. I think it is about $7 for the part.
