Having problems with your Kenmore 25512/ 25513 Progressive Canister Vacuum ?

I by accident sucked up the corner of a sheet into the powermate of my vacuum. I turned the vacuum off and pulled out the sheet but now the powermate is no longer working (suction works fine) Is this something I can fix on my own?

Answers :

These power heads have a kill switch on them. Not exactly clearly labeled.

the kill switch reset button should be on the right side of the unit as you look down like you are using it. you may want to try pushing it with the power to the power brush on. Upon resetting the button there, the power
head should start no problem.

Good luck with that.

Have a Centralux Aerus about 5 years old. Don't see a model number. There is suction but beater brush quit working. Was using for a few minutes, shut it off for a few minutes, turned it back on and suction only. Tried the reset button also. Tried the sidekick attachment and it works fine. There was no smell like something was hot. Belt is fine. Are there any fuses or anything else to try?

Hi -- I have a Kirby Sentria and it is great except that I am getting no suction at all through the big silver power head. Suction through all the other attachments works well.

My Dyson just stopped sucking up dirt. I have checked all the obvious things like clogs and filters. I noticed when I turn it on, there is a valve on the top of the cannister that opens and you can feel suction from the vent hole. Is this valve malfunctioning, or is it working correctly because something else is malfunctioning?
