Kenmore vac won't shut off, blowing heavy air from vent

\015 I've experienceed four problems with my 216-37000800 Kenmore Quick clean vacuum. I bought it last July. Last weekend, I emptied dirt from canister. Then the problems started.\015\0121. I started vacuuming, when I realized that the power switch wasn't working. I kept tapping it to turn it off but it doesn't turn off. I tried jiggling it but still nothing. I have to unplug it to turn off (and, consequently, to turn it on.\015\0122. Also, the vent at the bottom of the canister started blowing heavy air, which I noticed because I sprinkle carpet freshening powder before I vacuum. The vent was suddenly blowing the powder heavily out of the vacuum and the powder was getting everywhere (even though I just emptied the canister).\015\0123. It was suddently harder to push around the vacuum, even though the setting for the carpet height is always on the same setting.\015\0124. Lastly, there was a burning smell. This and the vent blowing powder around promoted me to stop using the vacuum.\015\012\015\012Help! Should I get rid of this thing? It's only a year old.\015

Answers :

For the stack of problems you have, it sounds like it be best for you to ditch it and get a new vacuum. The heavy problem sounds like a motor issue. The burning smell is most likely from the belt being loose on the power head.

Economically, you should just get a new one instead of replacing the whole system guts

Heater/fan issues I have a Honeywell - Year Round Fan with 1500W Heater that shuts off within five minutes if the fan is not running too. I don't have the oners manual and can't find one online. I have read several reviews that say the same thing. The heat does do much good when the fan above it is blowing cold air. Any ideas?

There is a safety switch which will shut the heater element off if the fan doesn't run. If the fan doesn't circulate air, the element would overheat and could possibly start a fire, so the switch will shut the element down. I'm not familiar with this ... Vacuums
