The caster wheel on my Kenmore canister vacuum seems to be sticking. It's not wanting to turn when I pull it. When I flip it over and look at it, though, it seems to spin okay

SOURCE: Losing power to stick/floor vacuum

if you have an extension wand, the replacement will cost about $100.00. there is a way to repair both the pwr-cord on the brush assemble and the wand, but it depends on how much damage there is. also you need to check the contacts where the wand connects with the handle,and the prongs on the handle.

let me know if you still need help

I tried what reddevil6 suggested and was not able to get Sears to produce a manual. I would prefer an online manual but at this point I'm desperate enough to try anything.

SOURCE: My electrolux canister vacuum roller does not spin even though it has power.

take the floor attachment and on the front where you attach the wand there's a rubber like cover take it out,then you'll see a screw that you would need a star key driver,loosen it and the cover comes off,you'll see 2 wires,black and red,on mine the red wire came loose,just reattach and put things back together and you're good to go.
Hope that helps

Sounds like a motor err. Could be repaired by a professional but it never be as good as a new one. Also they you might not find anyone to repair it because the replacement motor might cost more than a new vacuum /considering it's age the motor will be hard to find and that makes it more expensive to repair./

I suggest you to buy a new vacuum.

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

How do the wheels install


10. You will find four casters (Figure B) and a dolly (Figure C) with your wet/dry vacuum. Assemble as follows:
11. If the casters are not already installed in dolly, insert casters into bottom of dolly by placing stem of caster into holes provided. Ap- ply pressure and twisting motion until casters snap into place (Figure 1).
12. With cord disconnected from receptacle and tank cover removed, turn tank upside down so that bottom is facing up.

Where can i get a set of wheels for my five gallon brute vaccuum?

emailthispage.gif printthispage.gif 1" Dual Wheel Caster (Set of 4 6774200 casters with retainers) Catalog No. 420-63-96

Four (4) casters. Set of 4 Replacement Caster Wheels with retainers. This item is the replacement for the plastic, non-hooded casters shown. These casters you will receive are an upgraded dual hooded caster that are a perfect replacement but offer superior performance.

Four (4) casters. Discontinued. Order this item and we will send you an upgraded, superior dual hooded set of casters. A = 1-12/16" B = 1/4" C = 1-9/16" D = 3-7/16"


You can also look at your local Lowe's who sometimes carry a generic wheel.

Wheel is sticking. I want to remove the wheel to clean the axel. kenmore 116.27514700


Hi,

Thanks for the clarification. This is actually fairly simple to remove the rear wheel, however as you'll see after this has been removed, there really is no axle attached to this. It just snaps into the main canister housing. It may be that your wheel has broken, and a new wheel may fix your problem.

First here's a link to the parts shematic for your model so you can follow along:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getSubComp.pd?modelNumber=11627514700&productCategoryId=0642000&brandId=0582&brandDescription=KENMORE&modelName=VACUUM-CLEANER&diagramPageId=00001&componentDescription=CANISTER&documentId=P0706048&blt=06

Simply put a flat head screw driver behind the brush, and pry it off. It will easily come right off. You may inspect the wheel, and the wheel housing that it snaps into to make sure there are no obstructions, or pet hair that are slowing the wheel down. Also look at the clips that hold the wheel in place to make sure there's no debris above the clips on the wheel that could slow down the brushes also.

If it all appears to be fine, you may spray some WD40 on the part of the wheel that spins, reinsert it back in the vacuum cleaner and test to see if that fixes it. If it didn't, you might just want to purchase a new wheel assembly.

Here's a link to the rear wheel for Kenmore canisters if you'd like to purchase a new one from our website:

Hopefully that helps you. If you have any questions about how to repair this, or other questions that I did not address, simply just add a comment as you did last time, and I'll be more then happy to answer any and all of your follow up questions.

If you found this repair helpful, please be so kind and rate my repair, or leave feedback. This is really appreciated, and one of the reasons that Fixya repair professionals continue to post free repair advice on Fixya.

I am trying to find a replacement wheel (caster) for a Bosch BSG71360UC vacuum. Can you tell me where I can get one?


Hi There,

The casters for your Bosch are unfortunately sold as an entire assembly with all 3 wheels included when you purchase the part. We don't yet have this part on our website, but I did check and my parts distributor does have these in stock and ready to ship.

Here's a parts diagram for your machine that will identify all the parts, and part numbers on your machine. Please feel free to contact us if you'd like to go ahead and place an order.

Runs but doesn't vacuum/****. Sidebrush works fine. Cleaned the roller brushes, and that seemed to confuse the robot and now it keeps going backward a few inches, turning, and then starts going backward...


sounds like a sensor problem. pull and clean the front black/white caster assembly and the revealed movement sensor and the 4 cliff sensors along the bottom of the front. Make sure the front caster wheel turns freely. You may have to remove the roller from the caster assemply and push the axle out and clean it.

Ensure that the front caster can spin freely, pivot, and rotate. Remove the caster by pulling it out and clear any dirt. Reinsert the wheel and lightly push the wheel up and down

belt could be melted to the motor that spins the brush, try free spinning the brush with your hand to see if the brush spins freely, if it does not the brush bearings could be frozen, or just need a simple new belt...hope this helps
