Having problems with your Kenmore Vacuums ?

Lever & belt placement in Kenmore Progressive upright vacuum

\015 Hi. I have a Kenmore Progressive upright vacuum cleaner that I bought 9 or 10 years ago. I took the plastic top off to clean out some hair that was stuck around the brushes and roller on the bottom. When I move the lever on the back left of the vacuum to go from the Floor/Tools setting to the Carpet setting, is the belt supposed to go around the peg that's connected to that lever? It just looks like the peg is pushing down on top of the belt when I push the lever up to the Carpet setting. Thank you for any help you can give!\015

Answers :

You are correct. The belt is supposed to go around the peg that is connected to the lever so that when it is on the Floor /Tools setting the belt is not driven by the drive shaft.

The original belt on my upright Kenmore Progressive broke and I replaced it with the spare that was in the vacuum. The vacuum and spare belt are about 10 years old. Then the spare broke after one vacuuming session and there was a burning smell coming from the vacuum. I ordered new belts and replaced it with the new belt. It seems to be working fine with no smell. I checked the belt after I vacuumed the family room and although it was in tact, the belt was very hot. Is that normal? Should t

I just bought a good Sears Kenmore Progressive 300 upright vacuum (116.38812891) today at a garage sale for five bucks. I left my relic Electrolux with the new owners of my former home during a recent relocation. In the interim I bought a Bissel 3750H which I do not care for, and borrowed a Eureka 7685 AU which performs somewhat better. I cleaned up the Kenmore, and though it seems to run well, noticed the drive belt is showing signs of degeneration. I would like to replace it, but was unable t

My Kenmore progressive vacuum is extremely loud. The airflow and suction seem to be uninhibited, but the noise is loud and frustrating.
