Hi,

Replacing the brush roller of a Kenmore Progressive upright vacuum is a job that can be accomplished in just a few minutes. The Kenmore Progressive vacuum uses a motor-driven brush roller and does not have a belt, which reduces the maintenance needed on the vacuum. You can replace the brush roller yourself and save the time and expense of having someone else do the work for you.

Step 1 Unplug the electrical cord of the Kenmore Progressive upright vacuum cleaner from the electrical outlet before attempting to replace the brush roller.
Step 2 Press the handle release button on the base of the vacuum and let the handle move to the lowest position.
Step 3 Turn the vacuum cleaner over so that you are looking at the bottom of the vacuum and use a screwdriver to unfasten the screws on the bottom cover plate.
Step 4 Take the bottom cover plate off the vacuum and locate the brush roller at the top of the base plate.
Step 5 Place a screwdriver on one end of the brush roller and pry the roller away from the base plate, lifting it out of the vacuum.
Step 6 Take the end caps off the brush roller and place them on the ends of the new brush roller.
Step 7 Slide the brush roller into the vacuum base, prying out on the side of the base with a screwdriver until the roller fits in the base.
Step 8 Place the base plate back onto the vacuum, securing it with screws and turn the vacuum back over.
Step 9 Plug the Kenmore Progressive upright vacuum cleaner into the electrical outlet.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Brushes not turning, 2 inch piec on one brush in place, the housing is spinning but not turning brushes


Hello there! It sounds like you may need to replace your brush block assembly. Try turning that drive shaft connected to the middle brush. All the brushes should be able to do a full turn simultaneously. If the brushes get stuck and cant make a full turn or if all of the brushes aren't spinning together then your brush block will need to be replaced. To purchase a replacement brush block simply follow the link below. Hope this was helpful!

My brush bar keeps falling down. We replaced motor but now the brushes don't spin.


Hi! If you've replaced the turbine & gear assembly and the brushes are still not spinning, a replacement brush-block assembly may be needed. The brushes counter rotate and need each other to spin. If a single brush is falling out, the brush assembly is broken. If the whole brush assembly keeps falling out, the drive pin shaft may be damaged. To order a replacement brush-block follow the link below.

How to replace brushes in de walt drill


If you are mechanically inclined it isn't too hard. If you already have the replacement brushes then it should take about 15 minutes to replace. Be sure and replace both and not just one brush. Be careful with the new ones as they can be a bit brittle. Check youtube to watch people change out brushes. Most drills work the same way.

Air driven turbo brush


Is this the Lightning model? How old is it? You may have to just replace the belt.

Also, the front brush motor will not engage until the power is turned on and the handle is in the down position. In the upright position the brush motor wont engage. Typical faults will be the belt is broken and needs replacing or the fornt brush motor needs replacing.

I replaced the clutch in the dyson dc14. it isnt making that terrible noise anymore....thank god!! but the roller brush is not moving when the vacuum is in use. whats wrong?


The "horrible noise" you were hearing before wasn't the clutch! It was the roller brush. If the brush is not turning, all you are doing is burning out your new clutch. Reasons for the brush not turning: there is hair, carpet fiber or other matter wrapped around the brush that needs to be removed. Remove the roller brush, inspect it, and remove anything that could interfer with it's functioning. Reinstall and give it a test.

But in my experience, the brush needs to be replaced. Remove the brush and look for cracks in the plastic, If you see any, it needs replacing. eBay, via a distributor from England, is your best bet as far replacing the brush. Be careful of non-original brushes as they will break easily and are not of the same quality as the originals. Try searching for "DC14 brushroll" and then go down to the International Sellers at the bottom of the page.

Do not continue using the vac until you have solved the problem. You will only have to replace the clutch again.

Replacing the brush drive belt on model #1697 carpet cleaner


To replace the Brush Belt:

You will need a Phillips head screwdriver.

1. Turn the machine OFF and unplug from the wall outlet.

2. Step on the release pedal to lay the handle down on the floor.

3. Remove the Tank-in-Tank and SmartMix Bottle and set them aside.

4. Turn the machine over to expose the brush.

5. Look for the red retainers, which hold the black brush arms and gear-type brush belt in place. Unscrew the two Phillips head screws. Set these parts aside.

6. Loop the replacement brush roll belt around the brush end and the red pulley with the ridges.

7. Alternate holding each brush arm in place while replacing the red retainers.

8. Replace the Phillips head screws and turn until snug.

9. Turn the machine right side up to replace the Tank-in-Tank and SmartMix Bottle.
