Kenmore vacuum cleaner model no. 116. 5861279 belt replace


Do you need the belt or the directions for changing the belt? Sears Parts Direct has the manual for the 116.58612790 here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Vacuum-Parts/user-manuals/manual-downloads/Model-11658612790/0582/0640500?modelNumber=11658612790&diagramPageId=&documentId= . The direct link to the manual is http://c.searspartsdirect.com/mmh/pd_download/lis_pdf/OWNM/L0802691.pdf . See pages 14-15 of the manual.

To replace the belt, you need to remove the light cover and then the light bulb. Press in the sides of the cover and lift to remove it. the bulb needs to be pushed in and then turned couter-clockwise. Remove the cover screws. Then flip over the Power Mate and use the flat blade screwdriver to release both tabs. Turn the Power Mate back to right side up and press on the handle quick release pedal and lower the swivel. Tilt the cover forward until it snaps free. Carefully, use your screwdriver to pop the brush supports free on both sides to remove the brush. Slide off the old belt. (If needed, slide off the brush supports and washers. Clean the brush before reassembling the unit. Then replace the brush supports and washers.) Push the belt on motor drive and then onto the brush sprocket. Push the brush supports back into place on the base. (Make sure that this isn't assembled upside down.) Then line up the front of the cover with the base and tilt the cover back into place. Press firmly until you hear both sides click into place. Replace the cover screws, light bulb and bulb cover.

The belt is available here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/Kenmore-Vacuum-Parts/742024/0020/116/Model-11658612790/0582/0640500.html . This is part number 5285; it's the direct replacement for the original 742024 belt.

I hope this helps.

Burning rubber smell when vacuum running


First of all, thank you very much for choosing FIXYA today for your online technical support needs.

Most times that burning rubber smell is the result of a worn out rubber drive belt. This belt is used to drive the rotating beater brush in the head of your vacuum. When the belt gets old and loose, the drive pulley starts to spin in place and heats up the belt instead of turning it properly.

To fix this issue, just unplug your vacuum, then disassemble the bottom head in order to access the beater brush drive belt. Remove the old belt, then replace with a new one, and then reassemble it. The old belt will probably have a part number on it so you know which type to buy, or you can just look up your vacuum model number online to find the correct replacement part for it.


Since you did not provide your vacuum's exact model number, here is a link to a short video which demonstrates the basic belt replacement procedure for a generic vacuum cleaner:

Is there an easy way to see if a drive belt may be broken? It's so difficult to push my Kenmore upright vacuum!


Well there is only turning the vacuum over and see if the brush is rotating.

If it is not moving then you need to replace the belt.

If you need to know how to remove the bottom plate to replace the belt, please post the model number, the numbers you posted above are not the kenmore model numbers, the model numbers will look like this

My purple proggesive kenmore upright motor works but beater not beating help thank you


I just had the same problem - reset button didn't trip - cleaned the roller - ultimately found there is an override switch at the point where the hose attaches to the base of the vacuum - it disables the roller when you use the attachments. The hose had become loose (but not disconnected) enough to trip the switch. An easy fix after alot of tinkering... p.s. All those "experts" that said to change a belt obviously don't understand that this model is beltless...

Power brush not working well


You probably have a worn belt that drives the beater bar... 2 year old belts with reasonable use are more than likely due for a replacement. You should be able to get a replacement drive belt from Sears and change it yourself.. The baseplate of your power brush seperates and should provide access to the beater brush and drive pulley system.. Hope that helps..

BEATER BAR


The newer models have plastic end caps that will melt when the bearing heats up. This will cause the cap to go "off-centre" and the roller will vibrate badly. If this is the case, you will have to replace the roller.
If the belt is a geared drive, check the belt for any missing teeth.
