SOURCE: Belt broken a a Kenmore

Greetings from GoVacuum.com,

To properly fix a belt on a Kenmore vacuum, you will first need to indicate whether this is an upright or a canister vacuum. The model given, 116, is only the first part of the model number, and all Kenmore vacuums, upright and canister style, start with 116. There is a period first, then a whole string of numbers, 116.255553 etc.

Kenmore vacuums are mainly made by Panasonic for Sears, and most will use a Panasonic belt. If the belt is an upright, this makes it simple, and will be a Panasonic "UB" belt.

For a canister vacuum, most models use what's referred to as a cogged belt. This type of belt has little teeth on the inside of the belt, and is Panasonic CB-5 belt.

Instructions on How to Replace the Belt for an Upright;
There will usually be to plastic screws on the top of the agitator housing on the base of the vacuum, that will say belt access. Simply take a flat head screw driver, and turn the screws so that the screw is pointing up and down on both sides. Then pull the plastic agitator housing, or the top of the base of the vacuum off. Inside you will see a the roller brush, and the belt (or broken belt). Simply take the new belt and wrap it around the silver pulley located in the back of the machine, opposite the roller brush, and wrap the other end of the belt through the roller brush. Stretch the roller brush back into the housing of the machine, and replace the top of the base of the vacuum back on the machine. You should give the belt a tug, to ensure that the brush is spinning when the belt is being pulled.

Feel free to email me if you have any further questions, I'd be happy to walk you through it, or even shoot an instructional video to show you how you to replace it. My email is chris.jones at govacuum . com.

SOURCE: Kenmore Elegance Upright Bagged Vacuum Belt Broken and Smelling

It sounds like the brushroll has caused your belt problem and will be the cause of your burning smell as well. What commonly occurs is that carpet fiber,hair,string, thread,etc got wound around the brushroll and some will get caught in the end caps which is where the bearings are.The end caps need to be removed and cleaned so that the bearings can allow the brush to rotate freely.Check that there is no melting of the end caps or the base plate where the end caps fit into the machine._Good Luck

SOURCE: Kenmore Model 116 PowerMate Jr stopped working

If the roller brush is not spinning freely once you remove it from the Power Mate Jr., then I have discovered the solution! There are end caps at each end of the roller brush. They seem to be permanently attached, but they are not. There is an axle inside the roller that is permanently attached to one of the caps. Take two pairs of pliers, and grab each end cap with a pair of pliers. Then pull hard to take them off. Once they are off, you will find that there is a big glob of hair wrapped around the axle inside. Remove the hair. Then reassemble the brush by putting the end caps back on. Make sure, when you put the caps back, that they are aligned so that they will fit back into the slots on the Power Mate Jr. You have to push hard to get the caps back on, maybe tapping one of them with pliers.

Vacuum seems to have lost some suction and is harder to push on carpet


Start by installing a new belt. Belts lose elasticity fairly quickly. And should be replaced at least twice per year. Belts lose elasticity even if the vacuum has never been used. It's possible for a brand new vacuum to actually have been assembled a year or two ago which means it may end a new belt before it was ever used for the first time,

How do I get to the belt on a Kenmore vacuum cleaner, belt on a kenmore elegance canister,


Take it to you local vac shop for service. If the belt is broken there is another problem. Those belts are not supposed to break. The machine has a circuit breaker. If the breaker didn't function properly and caused the belt to break, you will likely just break the new belt.

I have a Eureka 4800 series the Boss upright with a bag and Hepa filter. I love it! I was just vacuuming with the hose part and all was well and then suddenly the lower brush came on and a "burning" smell...


I had the same problem. Take out the old belt if possible. Remove the 4 screws inside the filter and the 3 on the front of that housing. pull out the foam around the motor. carefully pull out the suction tube that is press fit against the motor. then you can pull the motor out. place it on its side, shaft side up and grab your hammer. tap down the metal sleeve that has been rubbing against the plastic housing. reinstall everything including a new belt and you should be good to go.

Lever & belt placement in Kenmore Progressive upright vacuum


You are correct. The belt is supposed to go around the peg that is connected to the lever so that when it is on the Floor /Tools setting the belt is not driven by the drive shaft.

Kenmore vacuum - no suction, brush wont turn


sounds like the vacuum is clogged and putting too much stain on the agitator, so I would clean out the entire passage way for the vacuum and replace the agitator belt, you must clean out all the hoses it is clogged somewhere

I have had my Dirt Devil for just less than a year. I bought it in September, '07. Last week I was using it and it suddenly stopped running. I can see no reason why. I need to find a nearby repair station. I cannot afford to buy another one. I bought it at Kmart; it was on sale for $49.97.
Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. I can see your problem but if it is anything more than a new belt or brushroll, it would be cheaper to buy as new one because the price of the part plus the labor fee will be more than the price of a new vacuum or you can buy a good used one from your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area. If it is the motor then definitely buy a new vacuum. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
