You may have a problem with the reel cord asm. Cord may be bad. Don't know which model you have, but if nothing works, the cord would be the 1st thing to check.

Replacing broken wheel on kenmore vacuum power head #116 54614400


Although I'm not familiar with that model I'd start by turning the base upside down and check near the back. Most vacuums are secured there by screws or a lever. Sometime you also have to reach inside the machine in front, like a car hood.

I have a kenmore vacuum, Series 116-23613300. four years old. It is emitting a high pitch squeel. I have checked and the hose is not clogged, I have put in a new bag and I have washed the foam filter. ...


If the squeal is coming from the canister portion of the machine, then you most likely have a fairly serious motor/fan problem. There are no moving parts on that machine other than the fan/motor assembly in the canister.

A local service center could confirm that. You can try to get a free quote if they offer such a service. Many may charge a fee even for diagnostic work.

If the noise is coming from the power-head, then there are multiple possibilities ranging from bad brushroller bearings to failing power-head motor.

I just need to get the power head apart to replace the belt. The two side tabs by themselves don't release the plastic...it is still firmly attached in the middle.


Look for a few screws under the machine, they will probably have Philips (star) heads. Remove these and the power head should come apart so you can access the belt and pulleys.

My power head on my Kenmore canister sweeper dont work right.How do I get it apart and fix the problem?


Try pushing the reset button on the top of the power head first. There is a protection system on Kenmore canisters that protect the belt from breaking, and if something was vacuumed up into the head, it will cause this reset switch to activate to protect the belt. On the top of the power head look for the a small red button, or a grey button that says overload protection switch, and push down on it.

If the power nozzle lights are coming on, and the machine is making noise, then this means that the belt may be off inside the head, however if you're not getting any power, and the head light is not coming on, then this is probably a bad hose on the unit.

I have written a detailed repair on how to replace the belt on the Kenmore canisters on Fixya, just follow the link below. The only difference on the one I helped repair and yours may be the that the screws are actually located on the bottom of the power nozzle rather then underneath of the headlight cover. The other steps will be the same, just unscrew the screws on the bottom of the power head.

Here's the link:

Please let me know if this didn't fix it, and I'll help you walk through this further and help you diagnosis the power head further.

Thanks,

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)

The beater of my kenmore vacuum won't turn on - the primary light goes on but none of the sensor lights go on.


Kenmore vacs generally have three male contacts at the machine end.Internally when the hoses swivels these contacts run on three brass rings which can also get dirty due to proximity to dirt. They can get dirty or dirt can fall into the corresponding female socket where the hose meets the vac. If you have just changed the bag inspect these connections near the intake port on the vac.
The working LED means you have a partial connection. Also try wiggling and twisting gently at the handle of the hose and where the wand connects to the hose and the power head elbow... you have 4 connections between vac and head

the problem could be with the power head itself or the hose providing the power. If you can turn the unit on from the handle, then its not the hose and you need to get a new power head..
