    Roller jammed

    My brush won't spin. The vacuum runs and has sucking power but it won't spin. I've replaced the belt and hit the overprotection on the vacuum but it still will not run.

You remove the light cover by squeezing on the sides while pulling up and out. Then you'll be able to find the two screws that need to be removed, and you're ready to go.

Yes. Remove the top plate on the power head. Remove the two screws. Flip the power head over. Insert a flat head screw driver into each of the marked slots and separate the two pieces. It takes about 2 minutes.

Kenmore vacuum model 116


Anthony, glad to have you back, except that you're missing a bunch of numbers. All Kenmore vac's models start with a 116., (notice the decimal after the 6). Then there's at least four to six more numbers that spell out the actual model. If you can get those for me I might be able to help.

How do I change the belt on the 116 model?


To properly fix a belt on a Kenmore vacuum, you will first need to indicate whether this is an upright or a canister vacuum. The model given, 116, is only the first part of the model number, and all Kenmore vacuums, upright and canister style, start with 116. There is a period first, then a whole string of numbers, 116.255553 etc.

Kenmore vacuums are mainly made by Panasonic for Sears, and most will use a Panasonic belt. If the belt is an upright, this makes it simple, and will be a Panasonic "UB" belt.

For a canister vacuum, most models use what's referred to as a cogged belt. This type of belt has little teeth on the inside of the belt, and is Panasonic CB-5 belt.

Instructions on How to Replace the Belt for an Upright;
There will usually be to plastic screws on the top of the agitator housing on the base of the vacuum, that will say belt access. Simply take a flat head screw driver, and turn the screws so that the screw is pointing up and down on both sides. Then pull the plastic agitator housing, or the top of the base of the vacuum off. Inside you will see a the roller brush, and the belt (or broken belt). Simply take the new belt and wrap it around the silver pulley located in the back of the machine, opposite the roller brush, and wrap the other end of the belt through the roller brush. Stretch the roller brush back into the housing of the machine, and replace the top of the base of the vacuum back on the machine. You should give the belt a tug, to ensure that the brush is spinning when the belt is being pulled..
