You need to buy a new pc board which is in side the canister between the motor and the power cord. first remove the lid. just pull it back real quick the it will come off. you might think you broke it but if done right it won't. now lift up but don't pull off the small lid in the back where the power-mate jr and look in the back for 2 screws remove those plus the 2 in front and pull the cover up. make sure to see where the wires are, if you don't the cover won't fit right when your done. between the pwr-cord and the motor is a pc board which needs to be replaced. just keep track of the wiring. if you can't do all this take it to Sears.
good luck

Kenmore Progressive Canister Vacuum -Model 116 22812200.

hello... you might want to try checking the elbow or neck of the power nozzle for blockage. Remove the wand from the head and look through it. Also look through the wands . If there is no blockage, maybe there is a problem with you nozzle. Reattach all the parts and turn on the machine, turn on the power nozzle. Can you hear the other motor start? If so, check to see if the belt is turning. If it is not, and you definitely hear the secondary motor, then you need a belt. If it doesn't make any sound then, with the machine still running, press the button on the upper part of the power nozzle, this should reset your motor. I hope these tips helped ya, let me know, by giving feedback when asked. thank you, Rene (The Vacuum Doctor)

Vacuum will not shut-off

if it has a foot pedal flick it a few times and see if it goes off.if its a switch unplug the vacuum and move the switch from on to off real fast a few time.if you have any contact cleaner you can try to spray a little into the switch while unplugged and work the switch back and forth a few times .the switch might just be dirty.if you don't hear a click when you turn it ioff and on then the switch is probably bad.please leave feedback.i hope i was some help to you
