Having problems with your Kenmore Vacuums ?

This concerns Kenmore Progressive vacuum 21637115700 part 23 2CKG352000, the belt driven brush bar. I had to take it out for some serious cleaning and it expanded in length about a quarter inch as it is supossed to, I guess. How do I collapse it back so I can re-attach the belt and brush? Thank you


Answers :

Hello. i can assist you. the bar will collapse back in one of two ways either direct pressure exerted on the ends or by a twisting motion applied to one end and or the other. use a pair of pliers or a wrench to get a grip on it if you need to. regards, joe.

Hello. I have an electrolux glider upright bagless vacuum cleaner (UK model) who's brushes do not rotate any more. I'm guessing that I need to replace the drive belt but I have no idea where to start. I would appreciate any tips. thanks


Hello! There are two solutions to this as the Glider model you speak of could be the more old fashioned type where screws on the bottom foot plate (ie where the spinning brush sits) have to be undone in order to get to the drive belt.\015\012 ... Electrolux Vacuums

Hi my proheat bissell 7901 stopped pumping water to the floor, but it pumps water from the hand hose. I read the manual and followed how to check belt and the flat belt on right side of shampooer is fine and I turned on and it turns and so do the brushes at the bottom of the machine. I was reading online and I guess there's two belts on this machine? where can I find the other belt to see if it needs replacing. I guess it's a ribbed belt? that is the water pump belt?


Just taken ours apart with the same problem... found it was caused by the 2 halves of the main casing coming apart in the area where the upright pedal release is. I found this to be due to the upper casing having broken in 2 places - the bottom of th ... Bissell 7901-1 ProHeat Scotchgard Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum

Bought a new sweeper and brush ( beater bar ) does not turn. The large belt is fine and turns. The small thin belt is also fine but does not turn the brush. It is either the wrong belt or is there something that could be missing to put tension on it ?? Thank You [email protected]


Jim, To put tension on the brush, tilt machine forward when upright, move carpet selector knob to carpet. then turn vac on. Brush will only spin when vac is tilted back to operate. brush stops when upright and on to use hand tools so the er is no dan ... Hoover U6630-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum

I have a Hoover pet cyclonic upright model uh70085. the brush won't spin, I thought maybe the small belt was stretched, I ordered the correct replacement belt and replaced it, I still have slack and the brush won't turn. the floor and brush adjustment seems to be working correctly. Thanks, Tom

In my (almost new) Dyson DC31 Animal the rolling brush tends to stop like the bearing was kind of difficult to turn. I opened the side carter and removed the little belt. Without the belt the engine runs regularly. I cleaned the little knots of hairs trapped in the bearing but still the brush runs for a while then stops, tries for a bit then stops again. I even tryed putting a bit of synthetic lubricant with apparently no result. Could it be a defective bearing? Thanks for your help.

Hi,My agitator brush won't run on my hoover S3590, I changed the belt, that didn't work. I don't see a possible cause in my book except replacing the belt. I think there could be a short, the brush will come on sometimes when pulling back and slightly lifting. Any ideas would be great and can I fix it myself? Thank you for any help, Bobbie


Hi Bobbie\015\012Take apart the electro floor head if you can and inspect inside - it may well be that there's clogged dust preventing the brush from turning and also check both sides of the actual beater bar as thread and tangled hair can often lead ... Hoover S3590 Bagged Canister Vacuum

It sounds as though a belt is rubbing or slightly off-track. The sound is extremely loud. We've removed the plate around the brush bar, made sure the brushes are free of dog hair, and found that the belt appears to be on track. What should we try now? We haven't tried to use it to check for suction for fear of doing real damage! Thank you. Marcia VanDyne


Is the sound coming from the head unit where the belt is attached? When you power up the vac, can you watch the belt to see if it is frayed or running off track. I have the same Dyson and had this same issue, cleaning the head cured it, but your issu ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

Rotating brush Hello, my kenmore rotating brush is not spinning at all, and its causing the motor to cut the belt. should i get a new brush? Thank you.


Sounds like the brush roll has an end that is melted or frozen up so it won't move, in which case you need to replace it. ... Vacuums

Beater Bar The "Beater Bar" or roller with brushes on it, is not spinning, therefore not picking up. I cannot locate my manual and need to know if it is belt driven and how to get at the belt to identify the size and purchase and install a new belt. Thank you for any assistance. [email protected]


Take off the bottom plate, then you can get to the brush roll and belt, on the model number plate, the number of the belt is on that, it is also on the belt if you can still make it out. ... Hoover U6437-900 / U6439-900 Windtunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum

Clogged hose A makeup brush (about 3.5 inches long) was sucked up through the vacuum hose. It won't come back through the same way it came in because the bristles in the brush are expanded. We can see the brush on the side of the hose that connects to the canister but can't get it around the bend of the 360 part of the hose... is there any way to take the hose apart more?

I have a Hoover Windtunnel U5472-940. The belt broke so I replaced it. Immediately the next one broke. The belt goes around the brush cylinder and a metal post. I think there is supposed to be something on the metal post to protect the belt but I can't tell from the owner's manual. I also can't find out if this is a part that can be replaced. I've only had the vacuum about a year and a half. Thanks


You may have something in your brush bearing that does not allow the brush to turn easily thus stretching the belt. Chris ... Hoover U6455-900 WindTunnel Vacuum

Panasonic mc-e4113 Upright vacuum. The belt that drives the brush in front is broken I have found a spare for this but there seems to be a pulley missing on the main drive shaft that the belt needs to fit on. I can't believe that there wouldn't be one? Can anyone tell me if this is the case and if so where I can get one from. Many thanks Sean

The brush is not moving on the vaccume. I'm pretty sure that the belt is busted. I cannot see how to get the shroud off, so that I can get to the roller and belt. It all looks and feels like one piece, even when I start removing screws. It is a bag-less vac. The model number is - v1310rs. Thank you.


I know on my Eureka I had to remove a couple of screws on the bottom and then get a flat blade screwdriver and wedge it on each side of the base kinda next where the end of the roller would be and it snaps up and off.

I was replacing the belt on my Eureka Smartvac 4870 and one of the felt gaskets (or part of it) popped out. I thought I put it in correctly, but the first I used it after replacing the belt, the gasket got mangled by the brush. I'm wondering how important it is to get fixed; is it a part I can pick up anywhere and fix myself? Thanks for the help.


I'm no expert but if you mean the felt on the roller, you have to replace the roller (expensive,esp. for such a minor part). So. I found some felt with adhesive in the craft section at Wal-Mart, trimmed it to fit and done deal. Felt reduces friction. ... Eureka Smartvac 4870 Bagged Upright Vacuum

I have an oreck xl and the vaccum wont hardly push. Is it the belt? The brushes aren't turning when I lay it on it side. How do you replace the belt? If you can give detailed instructions I would so appreicate it . Thanks

I had my Fantom in for repairs (filter, light, belt, and cleaning) less than 7 months ago. Now its not picking up again and the brushes are not rotating. Does this mean another belt? At $69+ every 6 months, I'm thinking of getting another vacum. Any suggestions? Thanks, Judy


Sounds like you are going to need a new belt. It also wouldn't be a bad idea to have the edges of the roller clean because hair and carpet can wind up on the edges making it harder for the roller to turn. ... Fantom Vacums FM741 Twister Bagless Upright Vacuum

I have a Hoover Windtunnel Farrington upright model U6431-900 It has worked flawlessly until last week. The roller brush has stopped turning and I believe it is the belt that has broken but I am not sure how to remove the cover to inspect it and replace the belt if that is the problem. Please inform me how to perform the operation and what I should I look for? Is there a site with a diagram on how to replace said parts? Thanks for any and all helpful info that you can supply me with. Larry

I am replacing drive belt on Eureka 4870 upright. Before installing I removed bottomplate and was cleaning out accumulated lint, hair and grit. Found a pair of identical (reciprocal) felt gaskets sucurely inserted above and below the roller brush, and one small loose piece of felt approximately 1/3 inch wide by 1 inch long that came out as I was pulling out debris. It has a slight crease across the middle as though I was not resting on an entire flat surface, but I find no other clues as to wher

Please can you help I have the vac disassembled ok just waiting to get the belt to reassemble it. thank you Colin White SEBO AUTOMATIX X1


As you know, there are two belts - the pulley device between the motor and the brush roller is the sensor that measures the drag on the brushes and operates the automatic height adjuster to maintain constant drag. To the left of that double pul ... Sebo Automatic X1 Bagged Upright Vacuum

Put on a new beater brush belt that I bought from Sears as detailed on the plate on the vacuum. It immediately snapped. Is there a diagram for the routing for the belt (there is a drive spindle and a tensioner)? Thanks.


I would first check to see if the beater brush is turning freely. You should be able to turn it by hand. If you can not, remove it from the vacuum and clean any debris on the brush and especially on the ends that hold it in place.\015\012Some WD40 ... Kenmore Whispertone 29512 Vacuum
