Kenmore Whispertone Model 26512690 PowerMate Brush motor does not run. The machine has no suction coming from the Power Mate Brush. However, I do have power in the main machine.
There are three likely causes for your problem.
\015\0121: the inline fuse is blown. Take the vacuum apart by removing the four screws in the top of the housing and lifting off the motor cover. The fuse a cylindrical object shrinkwrapped in line with the wires. Cut off the shrinkwrap and test with a meter. If the fuse is OK re-wrap with electrical tape.
\015\0122: the control PCB is broken. This slides into slots in a channel near the cord reel. Before replacing you can test its operation by using a voltmeter to measure the votage across the motor. Remove the tape on the white and blue/black crip connectors and push the probes of an AC voltmeter into the bottoms of each connector. Plug in the vacuum and switch the handle to flooring. If you read line voltage the control PCB is OK. If not a new PCB Part No. 86WBZRZ000 can be bought for less than $20. If you're handy with a soldering iron the Triac BTA16-600CW can be easily replaced for about $3.
\015\0123: In my case the problem was niether of these. Remove the motor by lifting the assembly straight up. Seperate the various housing parts until and foam bits until you have the motor free. Remove the brushes from the housing one at a time by unscrewing the retaining screw. In my case grit had lodged between the brush and barrel. The brush could not move and was no longer making good contact with the armature. A little coaxing and a blast of compressed air removed the grit and freed the brushed. After gently cleaning the carbon off the ends of each brush I replaced them and the vacuum ran good as new.

Not working  I hit the switch and there is no sound of a motor.  Nothing is happening.  It was working seconds earlier and suddenly it stopped.  The plug was in and I replugged it into the outlet.  Still, no power and no motor sound. Does this happen if the belt goes? Thank you, Jill

If it was just a broken belt you would still hear the motor running. most likely its in your cord or switch. check the main cord, connections to the switch, and also the motor supply cord that goes from the handle to the vacuum head. ... Oreck XL Ultra Bagged Upright Vacuum

Hello, My Electrolux Oxygen motorized brush stopped working. How do I determine if it is the switch, a belt or something else that is causing the motor not to work?

My filter queen majestic quit working. I opened up the unit to see what was wrong and I did not immediately notice anything wrong. Upon furter examination I noticed one of the traces on the printed circuit card was burnt. I used a soldering iron to "bridge the trace and it appeared to fix the problem for a while. Now it has stopped working again, and when I jumper the trace to run the motor it seems to work. Should I just replace the card? Or is there a more serious problem with too much current

I recommend replacing the card. Soldering involves the risk of further damaging the card, so it would be useless anyway. Why waste valuable time?\015\012There is a possibility of the motor overheating, generally due to a blockage in the airfl ... Filter Queen Majestic Canister Vacuum

I fear the motor has failed on my Electrolux Oxygen EL6988D. Just six months after the warranty expired, I was vacuuming when it suddenly stopped. There was no blockage in the tube and it wasn't working hard or long . . . it just stopped. I looked around the Internet and it appeared that many similar Electrolux units have a fuse. I hoped my problem might just be a blown fuse, so I took the machine apart. There are two small printed circuit boards, but no fuse. There is an in-line

110-220V Dear Sir, I purchased a kirby sentria vacuum cleaner from ebau two weeks ago. I currently resid in the UAE with 220V power. My maid has plugged the vacuum to work with it unaware of the voltage difference, a terrble noise as mentioned came from the cleaner as well as a smell. She unlugged it and stopped t from operating. Can you please let me know how can i assess the damage? If this model has a switch from 110 to 220V IS there a solution with transfromer or motor to make it work? Thank

You may have burnt up the motor field when it was plugged into a 220V power source. But there are drop down transformers you can get to reduce the voltage form 210 to 110. AS Radio Shack or similar store would have them. ... Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum
