If you push the reset, it should push in and if nothing happens, then there is a problem with either your cord, switshes or motor.

Everything seems to be working fine except it has no suction. I changed the bag and filter, but still nothing.


Probaly a clogged suction tube, unplug the vacuum first then tilt the vacuum upside down and see if you can see a clog .On the back side of the brush it will be kinda funnel shaped and that leads to your suction tube . That is the most common place for a clog.

Rate my answer with the thumbs..........Thanks

The brush is not rotating


Try pushing the reset button with a pen or paper clip. If that doesn't work, the motor may need to replaced. If the reset button is stuck, I don't know how to fix it - mine has the same problem.

Brush won't turn


The Agitator Overload switch is located on the top of the base assembly. Unplug the vacuum and press the reset button. The vacuum also has thermal protection, which will reset itself once the vacuum cools. The agitator will also stop when the vacuum is in the full upright position.

Kenmore progressive/direct drive-- roller stopped turning


We have the same vacuum & had the same problem. As the vacuum ages & the hose is periodically removed from the nozzle to use with the attachments, the white switch, adjacent to the nozzle connection, wears. If the hose is not fully reinserted or if the attachment notches are inadvertently aligned with the white stitch, the agitator may not work reliably. Assuring the hose is fully inserted, with the locking notches away from the switch has eliminated this problem with our vacuum cleaner.

Go to sears.com, click on the parts link, enter your full model number, then scroll down and there are several options to clikc on, a parts list and picture parts breakdown are there and if a manual is available, you can get it and parts thru this site. There is a overload switch for the brush roll motor, if tripped then it won't turn. Could be that the brush roll motor is bad. The motor and brush roll are put together as one unit, but you can get the motor by itself.

Kenmore direct drive will no longer self-propell


There may also be a reset button. If the brushes get stuck the unit can shut off power to the brushes to keep a total melt down from occurring. The reset button should return power in these types of vacuums.

My vacuum is not sucking at all.....


I took out the air flow filter at the back of the vacuum and turned it on, somehow the clog cleared. Then I put the filter back in and it works perfectly! Barb
