Question and Answers

Q:

How do i remove the motor/ fan cover on model # 11623812300?

A:

Thank you for your question.

I can understand wanting to clean the fan on the suction motor of the vacuum.

Do you have the fan motor out of the vacuum base?

If you are talking about the suction motor on this vacuum motor it is assembled at the factory and is not designed to be taken apart. It is replaced as a compete assembly.

If there is a lot of dirt in the motor fan, the only thing I would suggest is to use a pressure nozzle of an air compressor to blow the fan out.

If I have misunderstood as to what you are referring to please reply and I will try to help you further.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Q:

Kenmore vacuum 116.23812300

A:

Thank you for your question on the vacuum cleaner.

It sounds like you are referring to the power mate for the floor. The Power Mates have there own model number. I can see from the picture that they did not have the correct model number on the power mate. It should have a 5 after the dot instead of a 2 which is the canister.

The model number for this power mate should be; 116.53812300.

I will give you the link to the parts list.

Swivel for the power mate .

Steps for replacing the power mate swivel.

• First remove the lower wand assembly from the swivel. • Remove the step release lever (30) from the side of the swivel. • Remove the rear cover (31) from the swivel back. • Remove the front cover from the swivel and remove the dirt sensor board. • Push down on the wand release lever and pivot the swivel down. • Flip the unit over and locate and remove the screws (55) that hold the top cover onto the base. • Once you have the screws remove flip the unit back over and remove the top cover off the base, lifting from the back and tilting forward and un-hooking the top. • Locate the two screws (15) that hold the swivel hold down thermal cap. • You should now be able to pop the swivel out of the base. Note! The flat felt like swivel seals ( 22) that are on either side of the swivel and make sure that you put them back with out wrinkling these seals. • At this point you can reverse the process for re-assemble.

I hope this will help.
