Kenmore Vacuum Cleaner stopped working with sparks light smoke and smell. 11639109990 Kenmore Upright vacuum cleaner


Thank you for using I'm sorry to hear about the motor issue you're having with the vacuum, I know how frustrating this must be.

The symptoms you gave me definitely sound like the motor seized, so ordering a new motor was the right move. However, ordering the motor for model 116.39109991 will not work the same. That ending digit represents a revision made to the vacuum, and the parts are different.

Unfortunately, it looks as though the motor for your model 116.39109990 is no longer available, and it doesn't look like the manufacturer has substituted another one in it's place.

I would recommend returning the incorrect motor back for a refund since the connections won't work for your model. The vacuum was manufactured back in 1998, so it does have some years on it, and it may be time to look at a replacement. I have included a link below that you can use to look at some replacement vacuums on Just click the blue link below to be directed to the page.
