unfortunatly what happens is the dirt that gets sucked up goes over the moter and ruins the motor. the fact that it lasted this long is suprising. the motor should be right behind the bag the only one that ive seen that isnt there is a kirby! I hope this helped you!

SOURCE: rotating brush

Sounds like the brush roll has an end that is melted or frozen up so it won't move, in which case you need to replace it.

Any reputable vacuum cleaner repair shop can check it for you. It will have to be a multi brand shop, nit a Kirby, or Electrolux thpe. They are dealers and only repair their own brand.

SOURCE: How to change carbon brushes in Vax 2000

Bend back the three tabs and cut off the contact wire as close to the top tab as possible. You can then pull the brush (or what is left of it) out. The new brushes have a brass plate the same size as the brush opening. The connection wire that you cut away on the original brush is attached to this plate so you don't have to solder the connection. Push the new brush into the holder (you might have to file the carbon slightly to get it in). Then you have to compress the spring so that it all fits into the brush holder (this is difficult) once this is in keep the sping compressed with a small screw driver or other small tool, and bend the three tabs back over the brass plate to hold it in place. This is tricky but can be done.

Kenmore model 11628015700 suction motor won't run


Sometimes a motor will get a stuck carbon brush. Remove the motor from the machine and spray it around the carbon brushes with lectra motor cleaner. Do this outside FYI. This is a CRC product.
Next try hooking it up to a pair of leads, gator clips etc.. than you can plug into an electrical outlet to test it before reinstalling it. If it pops and sputters your motor is gone. PS Kenmore parts run 150 percent of outher brands so when you go to replace it maybe look at a manufactures brand directly. IF you can not disassemble the machine you can tap with medium force around the motor housing with a rubber mallet. Plug the machine in and turn it on while you tap the housing. Sometimes you will hear the motor come to life as the brush is knocked free.

Seem to have a belt slipping problem. The motor runs but the belt is not turning. Have been trying to get new belts. IMPOSSIBLE !!! I have two machines...148 15600 and 385 1233280


Hi there,

I assume you need belts for both machines? Searspartsdirect (SPD) are the best place for Kenmore replacement parts.

There are 2 belts on the 385 1233280 - the timing belt and the drive belt. Both are in stock at SPD and can be obtained by clicking on the following link:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Sewing-machine-Parts/Model-3851233280/0582/1220000/00024020/00008?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=

If you hover over the exploded parts diagram you can see a larger view. The timing belt is number 7 and the drive belt is number 15. If you scoll further down the page you can add them to your shopping cart.


They also have both belts for the 148 15600. They are numbered 16 and 17 in this diagram:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Sewing-machine-Parts/Model-14815600/0582/1220000/00033316/00008?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=

Again both are in stock, and can be ordered by scrolling down the page and adding numbers 16 and 17 to your shopping cart.

Yoiu may be able to get these from a Sears store, but you can any which you need from here.

Hope this helps. Please post back if you need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

Motor smells hot after 5 minutes. Brand new exhaust filter turns black


First - stop using the machine! The black material in the exhaust filter is carbon dust from the carbon brushes in the motor. The fact that the motor quickly smells hot and is shedding so much carbon indicates that the carbon brushes are worn to their limit (or damaged). They need replacing. Don't use the machine again until the new carbon brushes are in place or you risk causing irreparable damage and will be in line for a costly new motor. Carbon brushes are usually not expensive but, depending on your expertise, you may need someone to fit them for you.
You don't tell us the make or model of your vacuum so that's about all I can say. Good luck.

Kenmore vac producing burning odor


It sounds like you have bad carbon brushes on the motor. Get replacement brushes from a local vac shop, and take the unit apart. On each side of the motor their is a retangular piece of plastic with what looks like magnets in them. In most cases they are simply held by 2 screws. Replace these brushes and reasemble the unit. If the problem persists you have burned out the comutator on the motor and the whole thing must be replaced.

Carbon motor brush source?


unfortunatly the only way you could purchase the carbon brushes is from a vacuum parts dealer directly. the brushes will most likely end up costing you close toth price of a new motor anyway. sometimes its best to just get a new motor as the newer designes rotate teh brush much faster for better cleaning.

Kenmore mod #116 33922300 Serial #D33502445 machine runs-sucks- but brush does not turn. How do I fix this? Thanks Lenny


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.

Kenmore 35913 Progressive


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.
