Question about Kenmore 25614 / 25615 Progressive Bagged Canister Vacuum

2 Answers

Vacuum won't turn on!!

The sweeper attachment will runs, but the motor/vacuum in the body
won't. I tried checking the fuse in the housing but it seems good.
It was working this week and now it's dead.

    I am having the very same problem. Just started today.

    Thank you for such a fast answer...
    It sounds a little too scary for me to do myself.
    I took the canister to Sears and tried using a floor model's
    handle/hose. My vacuum still didn't turn on, so the problem is
    definitely in the motor area not the handle.
    I'll bite the bullet and let $ears fix it for me.

It could be the circuit board, or it could be the motor inside the canister. I have the same and the motor is making a humming noise like it's getting power but can't spin.

Some of these have a relay or circuit board down by the main motor that may have gone bad. Could have a problem with the circuit board in the hose handle, Could have a problem with the motor. Will jusy have to have opened up and checked. Go to Sears.com, click on parts, put in your complete model number, a parts list and picture will come up, maybe that will help you.

Sweeper will not run it has power to sweeper attachment the beater bar spins not the moter of sweeper


The most common reasons for such action is that the motor has died, usually the armature is the big culprit here. I have no idea of how you care for your vacuum, of course, but it needs to have the water basin dumped and cleaned out after EVERY cleaning session. This vacuum base should never be put away with water of any sort left in it. Over time, water left in any type of container will evaporate. If it's in a closed container, which, in effect this base becomes when the unit is attached to the basin, the water vapor will condense on whatever surface area is available to it, (the underside of the motor itself), and eventually, it will find it's way up inside the motor. This can result in rust, and even water clinging to the parts of the motor when it's fired up to run.

2013 Oreck Vacuum . How can I check to see if it is stopped up?


If it scatters the dirt then it's definitely clogged up at the nozzle just behind the roller brush. Turn the sweeper upside down and stand it on the handle. Then look under the roller brush. I have two Oreck's in my house. You can take a screwdriver to loosen the clog and dump out the dirt. Don't try to pick up pine needles as these are sticky and will quickly clog up any vacuum sweeper.

How do you change the belt on a winsor sensor s12?


Step 1. Remove the vacuum bag housing so that you are only working with the power nozzle or the bottom portion of your Sebo, this will make it much easier to work with. Turn the vacuum upside down, and remove only the 5 screws that I have circled in red:

Step 2. After removing the screws on the bottom of the vacuum cleaner, separate the top housing from the lower agitator housing, sometimes it may take putting a flat head screw driver in between the white and grey colored housing and prying them apart.

Step 3. You now have full access to the belts on your machine. It's most likely the belt that wraps around the brush gear rather then the belt that's attached to the motor that's gone bad. I have never replaced the motor belt in 8 years of servicing Windsor vacuums.

If you have any further questions on how to replace the belt, please feel free to reply to this repair by leaving your question in the comment section, I'm always more then happy to answer any question you may have.

Thanks again,

Sweeper smells stinks whole house up when running


Several questions:
What does the smell seem to be? If rubber, check the belt and brushroll for free rotation. If a musty smell, check the bag, it may need replaced with a new paper bag. If it has an electrical smell, like hot insulation, then the motor needs checked.

We replaced the motor on our electrolux epic 6500 but the temperture light comes on and machine willnot run.


Check for blockage in the hose or the sweeper. Check the filter located under the grill on the top back of the machine.

No suction at sweeper on dyson dc14


It may be something else. I have just had the same problem and I turned my Dyson over and removed the head bar by turning the 3 plastic screws. I found that a small plastic pipe, on the left handside, that attaches the head to the main machine had come off. I eased this back into its housing and problem is now fixed. Not bad for a total technophobe!
