    I finally took the cover off, but, did not see a belt. It is a Kenmore Canister Model. I tried plugging it back in afterwards, and it would only run for a couple of seconds, then stopped working. Could thid be a dead motor>?

Depending on which model, there is a couple of scres on the bottom, then on each side and back are release catchs that you pry up to release the top, then you can get to the belt. The other model you take off the light cover, it just snaps in place, then you can take out 2 screws from the top, on each side there is a slot, put a screwdriver up into the slot and pry out to release the tabs, then the cover comes off and you can get to the belt.

    Do you see the motor shaft, it should have a geared pulley on it. If you don't see a belt, then it may have broke. Can you turn the shaft by hand, if not then replace the motor. Go to Sears.com, put in your model # of the power head, a parts list will come up and you can order parts thru Sears. If you can turn it ok, then check the brush roll also.

Kenmore vacuum cleaner model no. 116. 5861279 belt replace


Do you need the belt or the directions for changing the belt? Sears Parts Direct has the manual for the 116.58612790 here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Vacuum-Parts/user-manuals/manual-downloads/Model-11658612790/0582/0640500?modelNumber=11658612790&diagramPageId=&documentId= . The direct link to the manual is http://c.searspartsdirect.com/mmh/pd_download/lis_pdf/OWNM/L0802691.pdf . See pages 14-15 of the manual.

To replace the belt, you need to remove the light cover and then the light bulb. Press in the sides of the cover and lift to remove it. the bulb needs to be pushed in and then turned couter-clockwise. Remove the cover screws. Then flip over the Power Mate and use the flat blade screwdriver to release both tabs. Turn the Power Mate back to right side up and press on the handle quick release pedal and lower the swivel. Tilt the cover forward until it snaps free. Carefully, use your screwdriver to pop the brush supports free on both sides to remove the brush. Slide off the old belt. (If needed, slide off the brush supports and washers. Clean the brush before reassembling the unit. Then replace the brush supports and washers.) Push the belt on motor drive and then onto the brush sprocket. Push the brush supports back into place on the base. (Make sure that this isn't assembled upside down.) Then line up the front of the cover with the base and tilt the cover back into place. Press firmly until you hear both sides click into place. Replace the cover screws, light bulb and bulb cover.

The belt is available here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/Kenmore-Vacuum-Parts/742024/0020/116/Model-11658612790/0582/0640500.html . This is part number 5285; it's the direct replacement for the original 742024 belt.

I hope this helps.

My kenmore progressive canister vacuum turns on only if the hose is attached to the floorwand. It seems that the canister motor is not working because I can't hear anything coming from the caniste


If the floor wand is powered, there may be an electrical connection that is broken when the wand is disconnected. This is part of the design, not necessarily a fault

Beater bar rotating but now making really loud almost buzzing sound???


It is probably a bad belt.That model uses a geared belt and you possibly have a few teeth missing on the belt.It could also be a bad brush or bad motor but less likley.Take the cover off of the power nozzle and inspect the belt.Disconnect it and look at it for missing teelh or a bad spot where they look different than the rest if this is the problem you can stop reading and just go buy a belt.Spin the brush by hand it should give very little resistance without a belt attached.If it spins freely then inspect the ends for a bad bearing.Check the plastic end caps for melting.If they look ok then try moving the brush back and forth slightly to see if the bearing has come apart.If the brush is spinning free and the ends are not showing any movement other than spinning around then inspect the area where the belt rides and make sure it is free of debris like hair and string.Finally plug in the machine with the power nozzle attached and the brush disconected and cover still off and listen to the motor in the power nozzle.If it still makes the noise it's the motor www.sewvac.com

HOW DO YOU CHANGE BELT CANT SEEM TO REMOVE BOTTOM TO GET TO IT KENMORE WISPERTONE 116


The top cover to the light lense pops off at the ends. When you get that cover off then you will see 2 screws that are by the swivel neck. Take those out and then the whole body top cover comes off. That will get you into the roller brush and belt area of this machine.

Broken belt how to fix i have a belt


Take off belt cover on the left side of the top cover, turn cleaner over, take out screw from red lock and remove, pull cap and brush roll out, unhook the cogged belt, then you can replace the pump belt thru that opening. Put belt over the pump pulley and stretched to go over the motor shaft. Then check the cogged belt and the cogged end of the pully to make sure that there are cogs, replace belt if there are cogss missing or belt is broke, if no cogs on the pulley, then you will have to replace the pump. Pulley only comes witht he pump.

How do you replace the belt? I took off the door and there seems to be no easy way to get it over the lower red wheel.

Bissell Proheat 2x Series 8920 - Brush Belt Metal Shaft Sprocket won't turn


Most likely the brush motor is bad and not turning, part #2036757, would sell for around $23. To get to it, start taking out screws on the top cover, that motor is under the that top access cover.
