Power head for Kenmore Canister Vac

\015 Problem with Kenmore Powermate head for a Kenmore Whispertone 12 amp canister vacuum. The circuit breaker in the head keeps popping after a second or so of motor operation. Beater brush turn easily when belt disconnected from motor. Belt in good shape. Seems like a good bit of arcing at the brushes of the motor, but I don't know what is normal. The motor shaft is hard to turn by hand when the belt is removed. Is the motor dying? If it is the motor, is it repairable or easily replaceable?\015

Answers :

Another potential problem for the increase in difficulty in turning the beater bar (drum) could stem from extremely dirty bearings, located at each end of the beater bar. I've seen hair knotted up to the point it chokes the bar and significantly reduces its ability tpo turn.

Hi, I have a canister Kenmore vacuum with power head. Everytime I use it, it smells sour. Its strong and like FEET with bad odor. My old Kenmore did the same thing but I used it anyway...because the power was great. We don't have feet problems or pets. The carpeting was new when we bought this vacuum.

Moisture/humidity mixed with organic dust (like sloughed skin cells) can cause the smell you describe in vacuums. I recommend that you purchase scented granules that are placed inside of the vacuum bag. Do not buy Carpet Fresh because the fine powd ... Kenmore 23612 Progressive PowerMate Bagged Canister Vacuum

I had the vacuum cleaner question about the canister and the wand/powerhead... the Kenmore Progressive Vacuum canister model 116.25812 and the canister not powering off without unplugging the vacuum. The solution I received that they both run on their own switch so it is normal makes sense. However, is there a power switch on the canister anywhere? The only way for the canister to be turned off is by unplugging it. Any ideas? One would think there would be a switch. I am new to fixya and hope
