Could be a problem with a switch, or the brush roll motor. You can go to sears.com, click on the parts link, enter you model number, you will have options to chose what you want to look at, then you get a parts list and picture breakdown, which may help you to find the problem.

Lately as I'm vacuuming, my vacuum will turn off. I can start it again, and it will shut off again. It seems like a power issue. Happens different places in the home, so it is not the outlet.


Some vacs shut off when the dirt bag is full Check your brush area and see if there is dirt or bits of string like things wrapped around the brush or the brush ends. This will cause the machine to shut down as well if there is pressure holding the brushes. Will it run if you wiggle the plug if so you could have a bad plug as well.

My husband sucked up part of a rug. The belt didn't shut off like I thought it was supposed to. Now there is a funny loud hum when the brush is running. There are also some fuzzy disc-like things around...


See if you can take the brush assembly off. There should be a plate and 2 screws. One on each side. You can lift out the brush and get all of the strings and such off of the roller brush. You might have to go a little deeper with it open and see if anything got sucked up the vent way.

I have a Sears Kenmore canister sweeper with the power mate, but it no longer has sufficient suction to pick up dirt. I took the machine apart and cleaned it, but it is still not sucking, does this model...


When cleaning the machine, did you do a good job of cleaning the beater brush and making sure it turned freely in the holders on each end? Perhaps a bit of WD40? Also, a new set of belts might help a bit.

My brusg stopped turning after sucking up a shoe


Hi There is a reset switch on your Dyson that needs to be pressed when something gets stuck in the brushes. The reset switch helps protect the motor that spins the brush from damaging if something gets stuck inside the brushes. There is a little red pole that sits up behind the brushes on the vacuum head, I believe it's on the left side of the floor head as if you were behind the machine vacuuming. Try pushing this reset switch first. Did this fix your problem? If no, please let me know and I'll be more then happy to do some more advanced diagnosing with you.

The problem started when i sucked a corner of a rug,now it will not **** very much at all??Kenmore upright progressive


This definitely sounds like your belt is broken. The belt is the part that is attached to the motor at one end, and to the roller brush at the other end. If something gets vacuumed up into the brushes that prevents the brushes from spinning, the motor will continue to try to spin the belt, and the motor shaft will then burn right through the belt, or cause the belt to fall off the motor shaft, preventing the brushes from spinning. On an upright vacuum cleaner, if the brushes are not spinning, it will seem like the vacuum cleaner is not sucking well, but in fact the brushes are just not spinning.

To see if the belt is your problem, while the vacuum is plugged, in turn the machine upside down so that the brushes are facing upwards. Make sure that if your machine has a rug/ floor setting that it's set to carpet mode, and now turn the machine on. Does the brush spin? If no, then this is because the belt has either broken, or stretched out so much that it no longer can spin the brushes.

Here's a link to the owners manual for your Kenmore that will walk you through, step by step on how to to replace the belt.

I have also uploaded the instruction manual to the main page on Fixya for your Kenmore 34612.

I really hope this helped you. If it did, please help other people who have this vacuum be able to find this repair on Fixya by rating the repair helpful. You may do this by clicking the 4 thumbs up icons in the right hand corner of the repair. If you have any questions about how to replace the belt, or if the belt is ok and something else is wrong, please just use the clarification request form here on Fixya, and I'll be happy to answer any follow up questions that you may have.

Thanks again,

My Oreck XL has quit sucking. The brush turns but


Same problem here with XL9100. Bag would not expand implying no suction. Motor ran and brushes turned. Easy disassembly using common tools found that a plastic bag had been sucked up and caused a blockage prior to the impeller. Cleaned up, reassembled, and everything worked fine after that.

Have suction, new bag, brush moving but does not


Solved!!!

I went to my local Sears store and the salesman there looked at my vacuum and was able to resolve the issue. There was a piece of wire that had been sucked into the machine that then blocked anything else from being vacuumed up.

Thanks for your help.

Belt needs fixed after sucking up a soft rug.


if its a canister model there probably is no belt just suction.open the canister and if it has a bag feel the bag ,if it feels kind of hard then the bag is full.take the tool off the end of the hose and turn it on to see if you have suction if you do then the tool is blocked up.take it to the sink and run some warm water through it and maybe use a little brush to clear out the dirt.full bag will cause your vacuum not to have suction or not as much as it should

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 Progressive Model # 116 25914507


I had the same problem with my vacuum. I called in for technical service and was told to push the "reset button". It turns out that there is a small red button right next to the dirt indicator light. I pushed the button, plugged the vacuum back in and started it up and it worked like a charm! :) Hope this helps!
