    My 4 year old pushed this button and now the vacuum is not working when I plug it in.

    So then what? Does the motor need to be replaced? or replace the fuse? I've already replaced the male lead wire as it was frayed. I got the power head to work briefly then the rollerbrush started smoking--a string was bound up in the roller. I removed the burnt string but the motor doesn't work now.

    i have the same problem but i also can not get the power head to even look at it i follow the instructions to remove but will not in able to look at what may be wrong what could be avoiding it to open ??

If my overload protecter reset part is broken wont that stop the moter from running


It's possible the motor may run if the reset is broken but it may prevent the motor from shutting off properly in case of an overload.

Try turning the agitator by hand-double check all is free and you have not missed anything-check manual for reset button-some buttons you have to hold down to reset-the manual should tell you how to reset

I removed the power head and when I connected it back, it won't work. Is there a reset button?


No, you just need to clean the connections - or make certain you have a good connection.

I need to know if it has a reset button. we had a power outage and it has stopped working since than. cant find a button to reset it.


Vacuum cleaners do not have reset buttons instead it would have a thermal protection breaker integrated within the motor if the motor overloads it will shut off but will start again as it cools down.Check to make sure the outlet has power in it first. Vacuum cleaners are usually reliable since they are not subjected to prolonged use unless it is used in commercial environment, but a common problem with it is a bad internal connection usually around the motor area due to vibration.

I by accident sucked up the corner of a sheet into the powermate of my vacuum. I turned the vacuum off and pulled out the sheet but now the powermate is no longer working (suction works fine) Is this...


These power heads have a kill switch on them. Not exactly clearly labeled.

the kill switch reset button should be on the right side of the unit as you look down like you are using it. you may want to try pushing it with the power to the power brush on. Upon resetting the button there, the power
head should start no problem.

Good luck with that.

Kenmore Powermate power head not working


I've got the same problem. Try checking out the electrical connection where the hose attaches to the canister. The hot male terminal is corroded and the female socket is burned out. Its an unfortunate design flaw that every time you open the vacuum to replace the bag the electrical connection disconnects and reconnects. Not sure if I can find replacement parts for a 10 year old vacuum or if a home-made re-wiring job is in order. Will find out tomorrow.

My power head on my Kenmore canister sweeper dont work right.How do I get it apart and fix the problem?


Try pushing the reset button on the top of the power head first. There is a protection system on Kenmore canisters that protect the belt from breaking, and if something was vacuumed up into the head, it will cause this reset switch to activate to protect the belt. On the top of the power head look for the a small red button, or a grey button that says overload protection switch, and push down on it.

If the power nozzle lights are coming on, and the machine is making noise, then this means that the belt may be off inside the head, however if you're not getting any power, and the head light is not coming on, then this is probably a bad hose on the unit.

I have written a detailed repair on how to replace the belt on the Kenmore canisters on Fixya, just follow the link below. The only difference on the one I helped repair and yours may be the that the screws are actually located on the bottom of the power nozzle rather then underneath of the headlight cover. The other steps will be the same, just unscrew the screws on the bottom of the power head.

Here's the link:
http://www.fixya.com/support/t4499227-need_replace_belt_in_kenmore_vacuum

Please let me know if this didn't fix it, and I'll help you walk through this further and help you diagnosis the power head further.

Thanks,
