Kenmore Direct Drive 116.35923500 Lower Circuit board

Installed on this machine machine was a tilt switch and a lower circuit boar and roller brush motor.. but to make the roller brush turn you must tap it what could be causing this. Circuit board sent to me you had to strip wire to connect did not have the wire connectors some wires were different colors could this be the wrong circuit board?

I can understand your interest on how you must tap your roller bar to activate it.  I did locate a link that will discuss a vacuum with a beater bar that is not rotating as well.  Click here to view the link.  Though this link discusses a different model number,
the mechanics are likely going to be very similar.  Keep in mind that an expert will be
responding within the next two business days if not sooner and will likely offer you more information and
instruction.  They will also discuss if you need to consider the circuit board or not.  I hope this is helpful and have a nice day.

 Thanks for contacting ManageMyLife. I understand how frustrating it is having trouble with your appliance.

As far as the board being the correct one I will need to know the part number of the board you received.  I will need to look up if there are special instructions or other things need to adapt the board to the vac body.  Please reply below with that part number.

Please feel free to let me know if you need further assistance. We are always here to help.

Thank you for using ManageMyLife.com.

number for pc board is KC85VCJNZ000 this is what was installed roller brush still not starting without a push. what should I look at?

Scott D , July 10, 2013

Bill is on vacation and I will try to assist you with this problem. The number of the board you received is correct for this unit. If the brush does run when given a push, it would lead to a weak motor. Now, if the motor will start running when just tapping it but not pushing it, then it could be a poor connection but it could also be a motor problem. If all the connections check ok, I recommend having a technician check this. You can call 1-800-469-4663 to locate the nearest repair center or to schedule a tech to come out.

When making voltage checks, all components must remain connected to get proper readings.
