Question about Kenmore 22812 Bagged Canister Vacuum

1 Answer

Unit powers up but beater bar does not rotate

It gets better:

the beater bar does not rotate but sucks ; so main motor runs
take it apart:
use meter to ring ohms through motor

50 +- ohms across motor brushes; seems OK
connect it back together and power up
beater bar works

assemble unit

does not work
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
the motor runs on 150vDC
and will kick if it is reconnected even with power off
so be careful

there are two thermo breakers in sreies on the black wire
open it and 0VDC to motor leads
when powered on
suspect a bad wire pinched too hard

all I have is parts list; no wire roadmap
my gut is telling me a wire is intermittent
ringing wires to control is a *****
gotta do what you gotta do

I have an Eureka Altima Model 2961AVZ vacuum that suddenly stopped picking up. I have taken it apart, checked the belt which was fine, replaced the hepa filter, and checked for clogs in all the hoses


Is the beater bar actually turning when the power is turned on? Sometimes the belt is fine, but something is jammed and keeping the beater bar from turning. What about the section behind the beater bar, but before the hose upright. I've found large pieces of paper jammed in here and then hair gets caught, ultimately blocking the whole system. Usually you have to turn it over, remove some screws and disconnect the belt and beater bar to get underneath. Just reassemble it in the reverse order to how you took it apart. Double check the hoses and run a "unwound" metal coat hanger through to unclog anything. Does the vacuum " suck" with the hose or tube up to it disconnected? If not you may have a motor that somehow got junk pulled into it. You can open this up as well and clean this out. Of course unplug it all before doing anything.

Beater bar motor quit, now the main motor quit. Replaced the on/off switch. still nothing


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
If the vacuum cleaner motor doesn't run the on - off switch might be turned off or defective. Test the switch with an Ohm meter or continuity checker.
If the vacuum cleaner motor does not run the motor itself might be burned out. Check the power switch first to be sure the motor can get power. Then, be sure the motor shaft can turn freely, that nothing is obstructing it. If the motor can turn freely and is getting power but still won't run it will need to be replaced.

THE ROLLER ON MY SHARK NAVIGATOR WILL NOT STAY ON, I CLEANED ALL THE HAIR FROM THE ROLLER AND IT STILL WONT STAY ON. IS THERE A BELT I NEED TO CHECK


We have only had our Navigator for 6 months and the bar won't turn. We took the whole beater bar head apart and it was a wiring problem in the beater bar motor.
What a piece of junk this is, very poorly made and has many design flaws.
Looking for something now to take it's place!

I sucked up a piece of fabric and turned it off ASAP. Now the beater bar won't work, but the beater bar does turn. Help!


If the clothe is jammed in the power head you will need to clear it. Have the unit unplugged and manually rotate the beater bar to work the jammed material out. Sometimes a pair of pliers helps to grip the material while turning the beater bar. If there is no longer a jam then the drive belt may have been damaged and needs to be replaced. Usually when this happens the brush does not rotate. You can get a belt often at hardware stores such as ACE, or as a last resort, the dealer.

I have a windtunnel 2 vacuum. It sucked up a cord that wrapped around the beater bar. Now the bar won't turn. There was no smoke or sign of something burning. The motor still runs and there is suction but...


Check the actual beater bar for movement. I have seen the plastic melting, and bearings seized under such circumstances. Also I am unsure by your question, but the motor that creates the vacuum (sucking) is different than the motor that spins your beater bar, so make sure that both motors are operating. (there is usually a small switch in the bottom that turns this motor off when the handle is in the upright position) Hope this helps

Vacuum turns on and suction in hose works, beater bar won't turn


If you hear the motor in the head running and the beater bar isn't rotating, you probably need a drive belt. With the power off, make sure you can rotate the beater bar freely by hand, if it isn't bound up.. then locate and remove the baseplate screws to gain access to the beater bar itself, you'll see a drive belt pulley system and chances are, a broken belt. Replace it with a new one by pulling the beater bar assembly out of the housing and plcing the belt onto the motor shaft pulley as well as the beater bar pulley.. nest the beater bar back into the holder and reinstall the cover. Hope that helps !
