Having problems with your Kenmore 23313 Whispertone Bagged Canister Vacuum ?

Motor goes on and off briefly at regular intervals

\015 Hi - Our Kenmore Progressive canister vacuum is switching on and off. When it is plugged in the motor cuts in and out quickly and constantly. The handheld part continues to work even when the motor in the canister is off (without suction, of course). Any thoughts?\015

Sounds like you may have a bad or loose connection, could be one of wires in the hose to the handle harness or the harness itself may be causing the problem. Also be the motor or relay causing a problem.

I have a clarke bench grinder model 1002. I have a light that I would like to attach into the wiring though the grinder wiring in it's base. The light has two wires, and the grinder has a ground that is grounded to the base, a black that goes to a switch then to the motor. The white goes directly to the motor. where would I have to splice in the two wires from the light? I have a switch that I would like to put in for the light on off also.

Motor wiring My Vax VS19TL motor died and I have managed to get hold of a new Vax 006 Turboforce motor which is the same size . My problem is that the original motor had two wires (black and white) which ran to the PCB switch. The new motor has three wires (black, white and yellow). I have ordered the PCB wiring loom for the 006 motor but I can't find any documentation that tells me where each wire goes. Can anyone help?

I have a Eureka 4870GZ. It turns on, but the brush roller doesn't move. The belt looks fine. I do have an extra belt and would try replacing the old belt, but I can't get the old one off the motor shaft or the new one on. I called Eureka customer service. The lady said there's supposed to be a small space between the motor shaft and the outside edge of the vacuum where I can slip the old belt off and the new one on. I don't see it. It looks like the motor shaft goes into a recessed place in the

I am putting my bissel 8910 back together and behind the motor there is a black 3-way tubing connector. One side goes to the pump discharge, one side goes to a tubing going to the right rear wheel (facing the unit from the front) I don't know where the third side goes to. I do not seem to have another tubing for this one to go to? Maybe it is lost or ?

Model # 5770 the brush motor runs and shuts down after a few seconds...Turn unit off and the brush again will run for a second or two...If I don't turn unit off brush will not start up..Could it be the printed board..the motor brushes..or the wiring that goes from the printed board to the main motor...Thank you


Seems like your unit goes into failsafe because it detects something wrong. Well you should check the brushes and replace them if they are worn out. Also check the wiring for shorts etc, becaue the unit maybe tripping due to an overload. The printed ... Bissell Vacuums

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
