Question about Kenmore Progressive Bagless Upright with Inteli-Clean SystemVacuum
I would appreciate advice on how to take apart my vacuum cleaner to remove a bolt that I believe is stuck in the motor or belt inside the casing. When the vacuum cleaner is turned there is a loud grinding noise and a burning smell.
There should be 2 screws on the top of the base.that will take the cover off remove the belt and on each side of the motor there are 1 or 2 screws that hold the motor onto the base,remove those and you should be able to lift the top half of the vacuum off the base,you will be at the motor.look on the end where the fan is and see if you can spot the bolt that stuck in there.try to turn the fan till its moves a little freely then shake the motor and maybe it will fall out.if its there it should be at the fan

Most Eureka's, there are 2 or 3 screws on the top to remove, then the top cover will come off. If no screws on top. then they are on the bottom. After the top is off, the belt and brush are right there in the open. To get to the motor, that off the 2 screws on the clamp on wach side of the motor, screws that are around the motor housing and then the motor cover should pull off. If the smell is electrical, if could be a bad motor, which sells for around $75 to $90. If the smell is more like rubber, then look at the belt and brush roll. If you need more info, get the model # off of the tag.
