Having problems with your Kenmore 23612 Progressive PowerMate Bagged Canister Vacuum ?

Can't get the bottom off!

\015 I am unable to successfully remove the bttom of my kenmore power mate to replace the belt. It seem sto be stuck in the middle - any suggestions?\015

Answers :

Can't swear this is the solution for the Progressive, but on the WhisperTone powermate the solution is this:\015\012Look on the bottom; it says "to service brush, turn unit over". You probably think you already have turned the unit over (it's upside down now, isn't it?). No, turn it right side up and take the cover off the light! (On the whisperTone, that means pressing in on the rightside (as it faces you) and lift up.) You will find the two screws that you need to undo. That solved our "seems to be stuck in the middle" problem. Then turn it back over and, using two flat head screwdrivers, pry at the sides where the tabs are (there were arrows on the rubber molding to show where).
Sounds like there is still a screw that hasn't been removed or in some cases manufacturers have tangs which need to be depressed with a flat screwdriver. Look closely at the bottom for evidence of a cover or plug which could be hiding a screw. Another place to check is the top which again could have a plugged hole or covered hole. I have found that generally if you look at something long enough the problem becomes evident. Magnification glasses and a bright light can be very helpful. The top and bottom may slide apart to release after removing all the obvious screws. Diligence is the key. Good luck.

Wont re-assemble I took the bottom plate off to clean out the rotary bush and can not get the plate back on! I think it is the position of the roller but no matter which way I place it when i turn it , it flicks back into the place that means i cant put the plate back on!


Assuming you did not remove the brush roller to clean it and consequently did not reseat it, I am guessing that the bottom plate is not reinstalling as it should.

November 2008 I bought a Simac Stirella 9000D steam generator iron. Recently its been leaking water out the bottom of the regenerator. It makes a noise when it is trying to get the steam to the iron and it works then but afterwards when the noise stops it stops steaming and I find a puddle of water underneath the regenerator. Also a little steam comes out of the water tank at the top. I understand this is happening because of scale in the base unit. Can I get something to get rid of the scale? -
