Having problems with your Kenmore Progressive Bagless Upright with Inteli-Clean SystemVacuum ?

My handi-mate Jr. is not spinning anymore. What should I do to fix it?


Answers :

Assuming you don't have a broken belt, you can pretty much completely disassemble the Handimate and clean it out, which should fix "it won't spin any more." Part of the cleaning procedure is pretty obvious - there are tabs on the side that hold the top onto the bottom. Just lift the side flaps on the top section that surround the tabs to release the top section. Pay attention to how the thing is put together so you can reassemble it - there aren't many parts - it's not rocket science. Now the part that's not obvious: it's not too hard to pull the axle out of the cylinder to which the brushes are attached. Gunk, hair and fibers can get caught under the white end caps and around the axle.

About six years ago, I replaced the Handi-Mate Jr with a similar attachment from my old Hoover. I did this after repeatedly disassembling and cleaning out the Handimate. After each cleanout,, the Handimate would only work for a few weeks. . The Hoover attachment is a different size. Because of this, I used a tubular rubber connector to attach it to my Kenmore vacuum. This combination has been very satisfactory. Amazed that Kenmore has still not improved the Handimate.

My Kenmore Handi-Mate Jr., Model # 116.36622501 generates a burning smell once i turn it on. It is out of warranty. There is any way i can look at the vacuum myself and figure out what is broken/burned and understand if it is worth fixing it? It vacuumed very nicely for about 2 years and it wasn't a cheap vacuum. Thank you very very much.

My floor brush stopped spinning, I cleaned everything out as per your directions in other posts and following the instructions in the manual. Now the floor brush wobbles and has a hard time spinning when upright. Looking at the end of the brush, opposite the drive belt, the bearing-type end that the brush spins on appears to be off-centered. Is there an easy way to fix this???

I have Hoover Widepath Bagless 12 Amp Windtunnel vacuum. Yesterday I was vacuuming and smelled smoke and it shut itself off.
