Question about Kenmore 25614 / 25615 Progressive Bagged Canister Vacuum

2 Answers

I have a kenmore progressive vacuum with a belt reset button that trips out everytime you try to vacuum. It does it in about 5 to 10 seconds. Can I bypass the reset button or can you help me determine the problem. Thanks

A lot of times the reset button is tripping because there is a problem. The problem could be with the brush roller in this case. A lot of times I see this unit for repair and the end of the brush is so compacted with hair and debris that it has also started to melt. This will also "fool" the reset and trip off. If you are near a service depot try there, or try sears parts if you need to have the brush roller replaced.

Bypassing the reset button is not advisable on any machine.

What if you have the same situation but I removed and cleaned all filters and working only with the power handle (no large end with motor brush) the unit still reduces suction in about 5 seconds ? If I am a candidate for bypassing the reset button please tell me how.. thanks

Brush stop and have to reset but stops again


Most likely on the edges of the brush, there's likely tons of hair and carpet wrapped on stopping the brush roller to spin. A worn or stretched belt could do this as well and trip the machine.

Hi, 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, if the reset button is stuck, use a pair of tweezers to pull it back out......

Secondly, your belt can also be broken or has come off the pulley. Remove the bottom plate and investigate.

The power head will not turn. I tried to reset by pushing the red reset button and nothing happened. I could not depress it.


If the button could not be depressed, it was most likely not tripped.
First, check to see that the drive belts are on the machine and have tension on the roller for the power head. Second, check to see that you can turn the brush on the power head by hand. If you can not, you need to remove it and clean it of any debris, paying special attention to the two end pieces that hold it in place. If possible, squirt a little WD40 on these end pieces to make sure they are loose and can be turned by hand. Check the connections that power the motor on the power head.
Let me know if you have any trouble and I will gladly help you further. I do not charge for my assistance.

BELTLESS BRUSH WILL NOT REVOLVE


I bought my parents the exact same model. Do you have the floor select switch "ON" for the brush? Did the overload protector switch trip? There is a little red button sticking out from the right hand side of the head. Check to see if it is pertruding past the cover. If so, push button in and it should reset.

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...

Motor on our kenmore progressive agitator is not


Look for a reset button on the motor and press it in. If it clicks, then it was tripped. An excessive load on the motor can make the reset trip. Try turning the motor shaft to make sure that it is not bound up. Run the machine empty for a short time to see if it works. Good luck!

Carpet function rollers don't turn


Most likely a broken belt. If the brush roll is turning freely, then check the belt.
