If the model is the same as pictured, the screws should be visible.
If the model is older like I think it is, the screws are going to be a tad tough to get to, but not impossible.

First you will need to take the bag door off. Open it like you would to change the bag and then push the bag door back farther so that the hinges "pop" out. Generally how i do it is put it on the counter, with the bag facing you, open as far as you can, grab the top portion of the bag door and push it back quickly.

Now, when the bag door is off, with a flat screw driver, the colored housing above the gray bumper will come off. insert the flat screwdriver in there and pry it open a touch. do that to the other side as well. Once both sides are open, you want to slide the screwdriver towards the back of the unit and gently pry the back off.

under there you will find 2 screws (if you need to go that far at this point) and you can remove the back of the unit easily.

Good luck,
Mark

How do I change the belt on the 116 model?


To properly fix a belt on a Kenmore vacuum, you will first need to indicate whether this is an upright or a canister vacuum. The model given, 116, is only the first part of the model number, and all Kenmore vacuums, upright and canister style, start with 116. There is a period first, then a whole string of numbers, 116.255553 etc.

Kenmore vacuums are mainly made by Panasonic for Sears, and most will use a Panasonic belt. If the belt is an upright, this makes it simple, and will be a Panasonic "UB" belt.

For a canister vacuum, most models use what's referred to as a cogged belt. This type of belt has little teeth on the inside of the belt, and is Panasonic CB-5 belt.

Instructions on How to Replace the Belt for an Upright;
There will usually be to plastic screws on the top of the agitator housing on the base of the vacuum, that will say belt access. Simply take a flat head screw driver, and turn the screws so that the screw is pointing up and down on both sides. Then pull the plastic agitator housing, or the top of the base of the vacuum off. Inside you will see a the roller brush, and the belt (or broken belt). Simply take the new belt and wrap it around the silver pulley located in the back of the machine, opposite the roller brush, and wrap the other end of the belt through the roller brush. Stretch the roller brush back into the housing of the machine, and replace the top of the base of the vacuum back on the machine. You should give the belt a tug, to ensure that the brush is spinning when the belt is being pulled..

Vacuum is making a burning smell from the motor/fan.


Hello,

Actually the screws to access the motor on Kenmore canisters are located underneath of the foot pedal that retracts the cord reel, and there's usually also two screws that underneath of the tool lid arms.

You may access the screws underneath of the cord reel by prying the foot pedal off of the vacuum. Simply put a flat head screw driver in between where the foot pedal and the vacuum cleaner meet on the top of the machine, and pry upwards with the screw driver. Once you remove the pedal you'll see the screws and have direct access to the vacuums motor.


If you are trying to access the power nozzle motor, here's a detailed step by step instruction tutorial that will walk you right through it.
http://www.fixya.com/support/t4499227-need_replace_belt_in_kenmore_vacuum

When a vacuum cleaner smells like something is burning, it can only really be one of two things. Either the rubber belt inside of the power nozzle is burning, or the motor is burning. If it's the belt that's burning, it will be a burning rubber type of smell, but if it's the electrical motor, it will be more of an electrical smell.

If you have any further quesitons, please feel free to reply using the clarification request tool here on Fixya. I'm always more then happy to answer any follow up questions.

That means that the belt is stretched and it is slipping on the motor shaft, that is why it is hot and smells like burning rubber. You need to replace the belt. Here is the correct belt you need:

Panasonic MC-CL673 vacuum is not getting up to speed and smells


Even though the brush is spinning, you probably need to replace the belt2_bing.gif because it is stretched. It is probably slipping on the beater bar. This is causing the smell (burning rubber). I don't believe it is your motor. :-)

Removing cover to motor


You will have to access the motor by removing the entire bottom brush housing and tilting the vac motor shaft out of the housing. Once released you will have a main body and brush housing.
There are visible motor housing screws in the lower portion of the main housing and if I recall there may be twoscrews inside the bag chamber as well

Burning smell when i vacuum.


Is there a lever on the side that switches the unit between hard floors and carpet i.e. a switch that can turn the roller off? If so, check that the belt is sitting properly in that mechanism, and not rubbing on the side.

Other there may be a fault with the motor. Sounds like not an easy fix so may be worth the trip to see a Service Technician.

Panasonic Vacuum MC-E450UK


Panasonic MC-E 450UK upright vacuum cleaner.
Just had this problem myself...........easy to get at it when you know how.
Panasonic UK wouldn't help me so I spent some time working it out..........here it is.
Remove the hose from its mounting storage at the rear (called hose clip) where the main body of the vacuum cleaner meets the base of the handle assembly. Remove the screw at the rear of the handle assembly which is behind where the hose 'was' situated and is located inside the deep recess.
Using the soft part of your clenched hand as a hammer, knock the base of the handle assembly at the front and it will slide backwards off the main body of the vacuum cleaner. Don't be scared, give it a thump and keep moving it backwards with a few more knocks.
Next remove the two screws at the front which hold the mains cable and on/off switch cover in place.
Finally looking from the rear once more, lift the plastic 'lug' at the top of the cover and which is part of the cover. This will now allow you to release the cover and pull it forward.
There you go! Told you it was easy!
Watch out for the funny little spring at the front behind the cover in the tiny plastic tube where it connects to the small rubber tubing as it could possibly try to escape.
You now have complete access in order to cut the intermittent part of the cable out and remove it from the 'choc' block.
Happy fixing!!
Jack.

Need to open motor compartment


Use a flat blade screwdriver, The dusy compartemnt door will come off by pushing it back, it just pops out. Then the rear top cover is held on by a tab, one in each corner. Put the flat blat in the slot at the bottom of the cover and work it until it pops loose. Then there are 2 screws to tak out to remove the cover over the motor and cord reel asm. But now you can get to the motor.
