Question about Kenmore 23513 Progressive Bagged Canister Vacuum

1 Answer

Brush won't turn

The brush of our Kenmore just stopped turning. To the untrained eye, it seems as if it is "off" (one side of the brush not completely where it should be). Vaccum repair shop will charge us $130 to repair. Could we do this ourselves?

    I have a similar problem with my Kenmore 116.52650300C vacuum. The brush turns intermitently. Sounds like a be off or streched. I tried to get into the head and have succeed in getting the rubber bumper off and cannot get the head to come apart. There are some plastic snaps but I can't seem to get them all to release at the same time. Any suggestions.

    how to change belt

×

1 Answer

Remove the drive belt and check the rod coming out the motor for operation when the unit is in the on position. If the motor is turning the motor is not at fault but good. Turn off unit! Next, try to turn the brush by hand. If it is hard to turn check both sides
(the ends) for hair build up. It could possibly be loaded with hair or some other type of string like material that has accumulated over the years and is restricting the movement of the brush. Also check the bearings on the ends too.
Good Luck

Bissell bagless 6583 brush won't turn after new belt


Sorry to hear about the difficulty with the brush. If your brush does not turn by hand freely, then your brush needs to be replaced.

Here is a quick link to order a new brush:

Brush doesn't turn all the time


The belt is worn out and you need to replace it. It's slipping and that's what you smell.

I caught a shoestring in the brush and now it won't turn. I pressed the "overload protector reset" button but it's just loose and seems to have no effect.


Hi. I think it may still need resetting. Keep pushing reset. If this does not help remove the brush the turn it on. It should start. If so, there still may be somethng in the brush bearing that is stopping it from turning. It could also be that the belt broke when you got the lace. Let me know please, hope this helps. Chris

Motor comes on-brush not turning


Most power heads use a belt to turn the brush roller. Open it up and u'll probably find the broken belt laying in there

The brush bar on my Dyson DC17 stopped turning.


If this model has a brush control - i.e a roller at the side of the model which controls brush to spin or not, then its a protected brush model - therefore even if the drive belt is intact the Dyson would have to be repaired by a service personnel or professional. The brush protection isn't able to be taken apart and sounds like it may well have slipped off due to tension.

Wish to remove bottom ofpowerhead-Kenmore Progressive 11629912990


I have a whispertone vacuum, different model #, but maybe instructions will be the same. Turns out I didn't need a new belt, just clean out the crud and reset overload protector. The instructions in the manual tell you to remove the light cover and bulb first. To do this, press in and lift both sides. Push in and turn bulb counterclockwise to remove. (you need to do this because the next step involves turning the unit over). This takes you to
Step 2. Unscrew the cover screws ( on either side of bulb).
Step 3. Turn unit over. To remove cover, insert screwdriver at cover tabs on both sides and twist to release tabs.
Step. 4 Turn unit right side up. Press handle release pedal and lower the swivel. Tilt cover forward from back until front snaps free.
Step 5. Carefully insert and twist screwdriver at each brush support to free brush from base.
Step 6. Remove worn belt.
Step 7. Slide brush supports off to check and clean brush support areas.

To replace belt: slide washers and brush supports onto brush assembly.
Install new belt over motor drive, then over brush sprocket.
Snap brush supports into place on base. Be sure brush supports are not upside down.
Line up front of cover and base. Rest cover on front edge of base. Tilt cover to back. Press cover firmly until side tabs snap into place. Replace cover screws, light bulb and light cover.

Check the brush roll ends, make sure they turn freely, if not then replace it. The belt may look ok, but they stretch after a short time and should be replaced.

Belt not turning


It could well be the dog hair. You'll need to remove the roller brush and completely clean it off with the hair which sounds like it has wrapped itself around the brush and the brush end washers. Check that the entire roller brush is completely clear and if any dirt is found at the sides, remove it.
