This is from the prongs not making a good connection causing an arch inside the plugg causing what looks like rust on the plugg. I would try snugging up the connection by squeezing the female section to get a better connection on the prongs when it i ... Vacuums
Power head attachment works great when plugged into the hose part of the vacuum. The problem is when I attach it to the tube for normal use there is no power. I have checked all the connections and switched the power switch on and off still no power from tube to power head. Is there anything else I can try? Model Callisto
Try having someone turn the machine on and off while you pull the cord in and out with the cord more angled towards the on/off switch. Sometimes these models have a break in the cord rewind and will not put the power through to the motor. ... Miele Vacuums

Being under warranty, I would take it back for an exchange. You don't want something brand new and it is dead on arrival. Either that or take it to a warranty shop for repair. You mess with it and that avoids the warranty. ... Vacuums
I have a Kenmore Progressive model 116.22812204 purchased 2003. The swivel (part nuumber 8195133) that attaches the extension wand to the power mate attachment snapped, so I can't keep the parts connected. I can order a replacement part on-line, but I don't know how to replace it - is it difficult to take apart the power-mate and replace this part? Do you have instructions on how to do it? Thanks!

Can you tell me if Powermate Power Brush attachments are all the same for all the Sears Powermate Cannister vacuums. That is, would one power brush attachment on a Model 116.56512690 fit one that is Model 116-22512202? Are the connecting ports all the same size?Thanks for your help.
I think your confusing model #s ,as the 116. 22512202 is the canister model number and the model number of the powerbrush attch would be 116.52512202,but to answer your ? no it depends on which wand your useing that determans which one you can use ... Kenmore 22812 Bagged Canister Vacuum
I have an electolux EL7001 canister vacuum. When I attach the large power nozzle....the one for the carpets not the small one for the floors...the nozzle is not powered unless I strap it on with duct tape. Is there some piece I can purchase that will secure the connection between the wand and the power nozzle head so that it is powered without the duct tape?thank you.

We have inherited a Filter Queen Majestic Triple Crown Model 99C vaccum and have no owners manual stating the year it was purchased and parts available. Our power hose electic wire connection (about 6 inches long) which plugs into the main unit is split in the hose attachment end. The motor sound went instantly quieter and I wondered if this was why when I found this frayed electical wire. It has not been used since this problem was found. How much is this single replacement part? I live
On my Samsung quiet jet, the carpet attachment rotor is spinning very slowly at full power. I've tried cleaning and lubricating at the connection points (disassembled the rotor assembly and lubricated the end points), but it still spins slowly. What could be slowing it down?

Electrolux Guardian Lux 9000 loss of power. I can measure 122 volts to the prongs where the cord is attached but do not measure that voltage at the prongs on the front of the canister where the hose connects. Is the something in the canister that controls the transfer to that plugin?

Model, 116.c85pbpk0v022 Power-Mate Jr. attachment stopped working, could it be a part within the unit (i.e. the electrical component) or do I need to replace the unit? How do I troubleshoot the electrical connection? No known drop or abuse. Worked last time I used it.
This model frequently stops because, lint, hair, etc. gets caught between the two end pieces of the brush cylinder. Do the following to fix it:1) Remove the two Philips screws from the underside of the unit. 2) The side with the tag will ... Kenmore Vacuums
Have a canister model Lux5500-ser#F35365B and power nozzle number N115Q-problem: The power nozzel does not stay completely connected to the hose-there seems to be some slipage where the hose connects to the nozzel-preventing a solid connection and the unit from working properly. I tried to tighten the connections on the nozzel, but this has not helped

When taking the handle/wand back to use it seems to lose the suction power regardless of what setting I use. Upon several times of standing it back up it seems to engage the suction power correctly is there a button or something that does not always engage to get power? can I fix it
When you say taking handle back I assume you mean the action to start rotation of brushes. Had simular problem and found by removing brush from tube and then cleaning "baked on rubbish" in plastic tube (so you can see clearly through tube) Clean with ... Dyson DC28 Animal Bagless Upright Vacuum
When connecting the wand into the brush component. sporatic power (sometimes runs sometime nothing) the power is on again off again. when hold pressure down on the wand the power stays on. do you think the coupling connection is bad on the wand? would the wand replacement likely be the culprit?
There is is switch or sensor in the connection. Likely that piece is worn or shorted out. You may be better off getting a new wand piece ... Kenmore 23913 Progressive PowerMate Bagged Canister Vacuum
For some reason, when I tried to put the floor vacuum attachment back on and vacuum the carpet, I realized that the belt was not engaging. the belt is in there and not broken, but it is not turning the beater brush. it is just hanging loose around the brush. When I turn the wheel to engage the brush, it picks the belt up, but when I attach the vacuum to the attachment, the brush is just not turning.

Meile Solaris. Power cord connection faulty. Unit powers on/off when cord is being retracted/pulled out. Maybe a break in wire close to connection point in vacuum. Or, the connection point itself is loose? The problem likely resulted from trying to use vacuum at furthest extent of cord.
Cord reel likely needs to be tightened. requirs disassembly and large washers installed to keep reel connections tight. Jim ... Vacuums

Hoover Upright Vacuum model U5470-900 - The On/Off switch on the handle does not properly engage the power switch deeper in the handle assembly. It appears to ride over the lower switch and doesn't engage it to operate it. If I play with it, I can get it to maybe turn on the vacuum, but, then the upper handle switch won't turn it off. Our current workaround is to use the power cord for on/off operation.

The power head keeps shorting out during use. one of the connecting prongs from the handle to the power head is black instead of silver and is smaller in diameter like it has been arcing inside the connection. could this be the problem and if so can I replace it or will I have to take it to a repair facility. Thank you for your help, Jim Carey [email protected]
This is a problem with the connection in the wands and the powerhead. Because they are shorting out you may have to replace the neck on the power nozzle. (Leave that to a pro). But you will definatly have to purchase a new wand as replacement wires a ... Electrolux Lux 7000 Bagged Canister Vacuum
The pump motor in my Bissel Proheat 2x Plus seems to have failed. It was seized so I sprayed WD-40 in it and let it sit for 3 days.

Here's a picture: http://bbay.dreamhost.com/bissel_proheat_2x_plus/P1070021.JPG I wanted to take the motor out and hook it into another power source to see if I can get it going but it has 3 wires.

HI, I have a Kenmore 25813 and it seems like there is an intermittent short. When I have the extension wand on and the power floor attachment on, when it rotate the wand the light cuts out and so does the power floor attachment, when I twist it back it comes on again. I don't have this problem if I remove the wand and just use the crevice tool with the hose. Any idea where the short might be and can I fix it myself? Thanks. Gary
