The power head of my 1165581590C Kenmore Power mate Whispertone 12 amp vacuum won't open. It is an older model and it desparately needs a clean!


I am not 100% sure of the model number but most of their powerheads come apart quite easily if you know how. There is a light lens cover on the top of your powerhead. On each side of this cover there is a little clip that holds it in place. You can usually see that spot by simply taking your thumb and pushing the light cover to one side or the other. Place a small flat head screwdriver in that slot and gently pry upward.

Once that cover is off, you will see two screws. Remove those two screws. Now simply grab each side of the cover towards the bottom and back of the nozzle and pull out. This should release it from the base. It will lift from forward from back to front..

Reassembly is pretty easy. Just reverse the instructions.

Let me know if this helps.

Owners manual for kenmore power-mate # 116


Greetings from GoVacuum,

I wasn't able to find the manual for the Kenmore model, however I did find the instruction manual for the corresponding Panasonic canister vacuum cleaner. Your particular Kenmore model is actually made by Panasonic for Sears, and then Sears puts the Kenmore name on the vacuum cleaner. They are identical internally, and have the same parts and components, besides the filter that is behind the bag. Sears makes Panasonic put a specially designed filter in the Kenmore's so that the customer has to go back and purchase that filter from Sears.

To download the instruction manual, please visit the link below;

You can also find a parts schematic of the power head below if you need to purchase parts;

Kenmore Model 116 PowerMate Jr stopped working


If the roller brush is not spinning freely once you remove it from the Power Mate Jr., then I have discovered the solution! There are end caps at each end of the roller brush. They seem to be permanently attached, but they are not. There is an axle inside the roller that is permanently attached to one of the caps. Take two pairs of pliers, and grab each end cap with a pair of pliers. Then pull hard to take them off. Once they are off, you will find that there is a big glob of hair wrapped around the axle inside. Remove the hair. Then reassemble the brush by putting the end caps back on. Make sure, when you put the caps back, that they are aligned so that they will fit back into the slots on the Power Mate Jr. You have to push hard to get the caps back on, maybe tapping one of them with pliers.

Did you push the reset? Check where the plug from the power head goes into the end of the handle. Sometmes the female plug gets pushed in to far, then the male part can't plug in and you will have no power to the power head. If this is the case, the the tabs on the tube inside the handle broke off and allowed the female plug to be pushed inside the handle. The other is the switch in the handle is bad, motor could also be bad. If you go to sears.com, click on the parts link, put in your complete model number and you will get a parts list and picture breakdown to look at and you can order parts here also.

check the reset button on the brush assembly which is also called the power mate. if not then take it to your local sears repair center. if it is the pc board. sears has them in stock. I think it is about $7 for the part.
