I was in the middle of vacuuming and all of a sudden the vacuum just stopped working. I looked, thought the bag was full so I changed it out and nothing it will not turn back on again.

If the bag was really full it could have restricted the airflow and caused it to get too hot and shut off. If it does not have a mechanical reset button it will come back on after it cools down. The filters may need replaced too.

I have a kenmore cleanscape upright- the light and suction just clicked off, but the brush still spins

That makes me think that you've tripped a safety switch or have blown a fuse. Have no idea where it would be.... but I would look for a reset button first. Good luck

It worked great and then suddenly won't turn on- don't have a manual, bought it on clearance- is there something i am not doing? i emptied the dirt out of it and brushed off the filter. Does it stop...

It sounds like the reset thermal switch has to be reset. Most vacuums have a reset switch on them some were and that is usually by the motor or the very bottom of the machine. If the switch was activated you just need to push it to reset it but there might be more to your problem then you know. The switch might have to be reset because of these problems that need to be handled first or it will happen again. First is the motor might be getting hot caused to pluged air ways, bag to full, hair or something like that wrapped around the spinning brush at the bottom of the machine. You need to make sure the roller on the bottom is not tied up that would over work the machine and cause the switch to come on. Also their are on some machines small air filters for the fine dust see if those are plugged as well these could casue the problems as well. thanks

The rotator brush stopped turning. it turns fine

The brush roll will only spin when your handle is not in the locked upright position, once the handle goes upright - the brushroll de-activates

Agitator wont turn

Some of these have a resetable circuit breaker, if it has one, push it. There is a motor on the brush roll which could be bad. There also is an on/off switch, it may have a problem.Also may have a switch where the hose goes into, some models have a actuator for the switch, when the hose is pushed in, it actuates the switch so the brush roll motor turns on and stops when you pull the hose out.
