Burning smell Kenmore 50558
If the burning smell is an electrical smell it could be motor or wiring problems which are best handled by a professional. If it smells like burning rubber it is probably the belt. If it smells like burnt wood it could be the belt slipping on the brush roll, if the brush roll is made of wood. Dust and debris can also accumulate behind the end caps of the brush roll causing friction which can cause a burning wood smell.

My Kenmore Elite Upright Vacuum stopped working.
It might sound very easy , but lack of power is usually the cause of a vacuum cleaner that is not working . Check that the vacuum cleaner is plugged into a working power outlet and that fuses and breakers don't need resetting. An activated thermal cut-out due to a blockage is the next most likely cause of the problem.
Tripped Circuit Breaker/ Blown Fuse
Check service panel for tripped breakers/blown fuses. If breaker is tripped, reset it. If fuse is blown, replace it. If vacuum cleaner is plugged in, make sure that the power button is in the off position before having to reset the breaker/changing fuse.

My wand release button is stuck on my Kenmore Progressive vacuum cleaner so it will not release the wands.
I just tried this trick from an Amazon review answer and it worked! I just turned the handle upset down, pressed the wand release button while the handle was in that position, and voila! The attachment came right out. Here's the Amazon quote I found via Google:
"Unplug the vacuum and remove the wand. If you cannot get your wand to release, try turning the handle over, and using gravity to allow the wand release switch to fall while you depress the wand release button and jiggle the wand in and out."
