Power brush not working well

I have a canister Kenmore vacuum cleaner about 2 years old. The power brush is not working well. It rolls only in the forward direction and in the other direction stops. Is there a part that I can change to fix this problem?
Thank you!

You probably have a worn belt that drives the beater bar... 2 year old belts with reasonable use are more than likely due for a replacement. You should be able to get a replacement drive belt from Sears and change it yourself.. The baseplate of your power brush seperates and should provide access to the beater brush and drive pulley system.. Hope that helps..

Why


Hi! There are a few reasons why your brushes may not be spinning. Try these simple steps below.

1. Your brush roll may be clogged. Unplug the cleaner and remove any debris from brush roll.
2. Make sure the brush roll setting is turned on. The brush roll on/off switch is located on the handle of the hose.
3. Reset the brushes. The brush roll reset button is located on the back of the nozzle on the right side.

Hope this helps! If you still have questions feel free to reach out to us here on Fixya, Facebook.com/dirtdevil or Twitter @DirtDevil.

See were to put the swr driver on both sides and not sure where to pull up


Hello,

I'm pretty sure you're asking about a Kenmore canister vacuum,

Here's what you'll need to replace a belt on a Kenmore2_bing.gif canister vacuum:

- Phillips Head Screw Driver
- Flat Head Screw Driver

There are two different types of belts2_bing.gif that are used on a Kenmore Canister. One of them is called a cogged belt, which has little teeth on the inside of the belt. The other is called a serpantine belt, which looks like a car belt, and has little grooves on the inside of the. You'll be able to tell which on yours takes after opening up the power nozzle.

This is the Cogged or Geared Belt with little teeth inside the belt:

This is the other Serpantine Belt that has little grooves on the inside of the belt:

Here's how you can replace the belt on your Kenmore Canister vacuum cleaner2_bing.gif. First, before taking apart the power nozzle to change the belt, try pressing the overload protection system reset switch. This overload protection feature is designed to shut off the power nozzle if something gets stuck in the brushes, to prevent the belt from breaking.

Step 1. If you're power nozzle is a square shaped nozzle like the nozzle that I took a picture of above, then you'll need to first remove the headlight cover before you can access the roller brush and belt. Simply squeeze both sides of the headlight housing, and while squeezing, lift upwards with your fingers exactly where my fingers are located in this picture:

Step 2. After the headlight cover has been removed, you'll see two screws underneath of the headlight cover, directly in front of the neck of the power nozzle. You'll need to remove both of these screws. I have circled these screws in red:

Step 3. After both of these screws have been removed, turn the power head upside down, so the roller brush is facing upwards. You should see writing that points to an area to put your flat head screw driver. You'll need to put the flat head screw driver down inside of the nozzle, and pry the top blue housing from the black bottom housing. Here's where the screw driver should go on the left side0723429.jpg:

Here's a picture of the screwdriver prying off the right side:

Step 4. Now turn the power nozzle back over on top, and remove the top housing of the nozzle. You may have to push the handle release pedal in order to take the top housing off.

Kenmore canister vacuum will not turn on


No, the only effect of not cleaning them would be decreased air flow and consequently . The time between changing filters depends on how much the vacuum cleaner is used. Common failures are damaged cords and a damaged or failed power switch

Please post back with a brand and advise more info, however , I assume this is a canister vac with hose and `power head``.

Often a power head brush roll will build up hair and thread which travels and winds up at the end of the brush where it`s bearings or bushings are located. You may need to remove the brush roll and the end caps from the brush to inspect that area. A head equipped with a sensor will detect resistance from this area. Inspect this area and post back to advise how you have made out.. good work so far

Carpet function rollers don't turn


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

Sounds like motor brushes may be going. Is the vacuum cleaner old? I suggest bringing the unit in for service to replace the motor brushes. Get a quote to see if is worthwhile to fix.

Did you check the brush roll? One of the ends of the brush may have froze and won't let the brush roll spin. If it is bad, then replace it.
