My Kenmore canister model (116) 26212601 works in hard-surface mode (basic suction), but the brush won't spin for carpets, and when I try to turn it on, it makes a whiny sound and then turns off as it does when I need to press the overload button. I looked inside a bit, and the belt isn't broken--it seems fine. So not sure what the problem is. Thanks for any help.

Windtunnel belt I have a new Hoover Windtunnel canister. The belt keeps coming off. It happened a couple weeks ago (several times after putting the belt back on) so I assumed I might need a new belt as it might have dried out at the store. I ordered new belts and today I used it for about an hour and the belt came off again, twice. There doesn't seem to be anything to hold the belt on the stem as it seems to slip off. I have tried it centered, to the left and to the right....can you help. I am v

Floor Attachment I took off my floor attachment, but now the belt seems to be off and I can't seem to get it back on right. I can't use the attachment and I don't know why it's so hard to figure this out. They say, just turn it to belt off, but when i turn it it lift's it up and can't line up with the belt off label. Then, when I turn it the other way, it's off. So I've been trying to pull it off so when it lines up with belt off, it's off. But the I turn it the other way and it's still off a

I have a Eureka 5902AVZ and the brushroll does not work. when i remove the belt, which is not torn nor worn out, the motor spins perfectly fine. Though when i put the brushroll back into place, it shows that the motor is trying to spin, but with resistance. it seems the brushroll will not spin if locked into place, because there is no attachment on the left side of the brushroll that will allow it to spin freely with the belt. am I missing some parts or is there something else wrong?

My Vacuum DC-17 has just quit sucking. It has been making quite a racket since I had the belt changed at a repair shop several months ago. I was told that the belt was a new design and figured that was why it was making so much noise. it seemed to work fine, was picking up dirt and all, but today, when I started vacumming, I noticed it was not sucking air either with the belt engaged or not. My vacuum is approx. 5 years old.

Canister powerhead brush does not seem to spin when the carpet level adjustment is on any level other than "high". Could it be something as simple as needing a new belt and is there a difference in a regular belt as opposed to "whisper belt"?
The belt is worn/stretched to the point that it cannot take the load on low level setting due to more resistance against the carpet and there is also no signifagant difference between the two belts except for expecting a longer belt life from the whi ...

Have Fresh Aire 2.1 about 4 years was running great then went dead. I cant find where the fuse is and have unit apart. I plug in no fan dim display shows to errors. Unit was pretty dirty at the time. I need schematic and suggestions. Also need to knpw how to remove the honeycomb from the light unit to check for blown bulb. Seems brittle and I could break it with trying to pry with augur or sharp screwdiver object.
I'm sorry this may only be a partial help. But fuses are usually very close to the motor, OR where the switch is located. Pretty easy to find by testing but you have to be or so careful you dont electricute yourself. Now if your testing shows v ... Vacuums

Last night as I was vacuuming, I noticed that the belt stop indicator light was on. I pulled out the hair that had gotten tangled around the brush in hopes of solving the problem. It didn't change things. I then unscrewed the entire bottom piece to take out the brush roller. I removed hair from the end piece of the brush roller and reattached the belt; however, I cannot figure out where the microchip is supposed to go so that I can reassemble the base piece by screwing it back together. It seems
Not sure what you mean when you refer to a "microchip" but maybe it is a sensor that works with the belt.\015\012Anyway, if you Google the make and model number of your vacuum you can probably get an exploded view or owners manual that might indicate ... Vacuums
