Having problems with your Kenmore 22812 Bagged Canister Vacuum ?

I have a Sears Kenmore canister sweeper with the power mate, but it no longer has sufficient suction to pick up dirt. I took the machine apart and cleaned it, but it is still not sucking, does this model need to have the motor oiled?


Answers :

When cleaning the machine, did you do a good job of cleaning the beater brush and making sure it turned freely in the holders on each end? Perhaps a bit of WD40?\015\012Also, a new set of belts might help a bit.

Hoover F5809 Hello, I seen a few of your post and was hoping you could help me. I just became a member today. My sister gave me her old Hoover Steam Vac-Model F5809. This thing is so dirty and clogged because my sister has pets. So far I've gotten it all taken apart to clean it. I'm not a newbie and taking apart and fixing things. I have fixed things like microwaves, washers, dryers, dishwashers (still learning about TV's-very hard, hehe). Anyway, I got what I believe to be the motor cover off.


That cover is the called the fan cover and is usually pressed on. Tapping on the edge with a flat blade, you may be able to get it off and hope you don't bend it up, you will to put it back on tight enough so it will stay in place. Another thing to ... Vacuums

I own a Miele S5210 vacuum cleaner which has stopped working. It looks like the dust bag wasn't fitted properly and the machine is very dirty and the filters are completely clogged. I've cleaned it up as best I can and have replaced the filters but it still won't operate. How can I get inside the casing to clean the inner motor compartment? Thanks Tom

How do I replace the motor brushes in my DC11? I cannot dismantle beyond removing the pipe attachment. I've removed the 6 fixing screws that are visible, but the machine is still firmly "together" as if there are still screws that I've not located. Does it snap apart? Are there hidden screws? Paul

I have a Kenmore 116.36932 (upright-bagless vacuum) that the motor protector by-pass valve has opened. I've clean out the area between the agitator brush where the flexible extension hose starts. There was some blockage there. I checked the rest of the system (extenstion hose, back filter area, pipe area to canister and area to side filter. I took the 2 filters out and the by-pass valve is still open. Where else could there be a blockage that I can take apart to clean and put back together

It clicks as it is going and stops after about 30 seconds. Two beeps. I have tried cleaning brushes and have pretty much taken the whole thing apart, cleaned the motor, the brushes everything. Still doing to same thing, when this has worked before.

HI, my motorized brush barely turns.It makes a hot rubber smell. I took apart and noticed the spindle the belt turns on discolored from heat. Cleaned it, but still no turning of the brush.The vac is a hoover wind tunnel. As it moved accidentally touched the belt/ spindle and burned my hand a little. Very hot in area. Bright spark from motor noted. Was careful not to touch that part!


That means that the belt is stretched and it is slipping on the motor shaft, that is why it is hot and smells like burning rubber. You need to replace the belt. Here is the correct belt you need: ... Hoover S3765-040 WindTunnel Bagless Canister Vacuum

No suction I live in a house with two bernese mountain dogs... very large animals who shed a LOT.  I've cleaned the filters, the roller, and gotten as far into the hoses as I can without taking the entire machine apart.  It's still not cleaning as well as I know it can... nothing is making it into the debris receptacle.  What can I do?

Vorwerk ET 340 - been great but now noticing strong burning smell after vacuuming some hair from the bathroom. Bag is nearly empty. Gave it a rest then unscrewed the cover housing the motor and all looks clean (dust is sucked up the pipe and doesn't appear to get near the motor). When I restarted it, burning smell still there. Are there any filters that might need changing? What could be causing the smell? Could the hair have gotten caught somewhere? Thanks.

I have the Sharper Image EV-HD15 Cool Mist Humidier Ultrasonic 1.6 gal humidifier. I purchased it last year. Yesterday I took it apart to clean as per instructions. I feel that I may not have place the round housing (which is secured with 4 screws) back correctly. When I turned the machine on it made a whirring sound. I took the unit apart again and rotated that round piece moving the opening away from the opening on the tower. The whirring sound was reduced but there was still a sou

I have a Bissell Proheat 2x cleaner which has worked perfectly on every occasion. Today I filled the machine as usual with water and formula and switched on, the motor ran, the lights were on and the brushes rotated but upon pressing the spray trigger no water or formula was released. I have cleaned the jets underneath and also followed instructions to release any airlock. It still wont release the water/formula. What else can I do? Thanks Charles

The vacuum is making a noise like something is stuck when it is in the carpet position but not when in the floor position. I can't find anything that is stuck in the areas that I can see. I have cleaned the brush but it does not seem to want to turn. Does this machine need to be oiled so the roller will turn? Is there a way to check inside the motor? Do you think that because the brush won't turn that is making the noise? Do you know of any repair shops in the Lake Havasu City, Arizona area?


As far as the roller brush goes, yes, it does need to be cleaned. Follow the directions to remove it and clean as best you can of all debris. On both ends of the roller brush there will be two "holders" of sort that connect the brush to the frame o ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

My Kirby 2HD has started making an odd roaring noise but still works fine. I have taken the front assembly off and cleaned and adjusted the roller and checked the belt. The noise seems to come from the motor housing. I have tried to wiggle the main shaft at the front (bearings?) and it seems tight. Can't seem to get the other housings apart. Any ideas? Thanks, John


It is quite possible, it just needs lubed. The motor comes in direct contact with dirt so, you have to make sure the front bearing has a drop of oil on it from time to time. If it starts to scream at you within one month, after oiling, the bearing ... Kirby Heritage II Vacuum
