We have a Kenmore canister vacuum cleaner 25614504. It has in intermittant light and power flicker in the power mate unit as it is moving over the floor. This behavior can be simulated by jiggling the power cord where it eners the power mate. I do not know how to enter the power mate to see if there is a loose wire.

Roomba discovery on full charge power up and it will run 5 sec power button then flashes red and roomba quits. I have tried removing battery and holding power button for 30 sec then charging same result
Unfortunately the batteries on the roombas can go bad and not hold a charge and need to be replaced, also you should check all the brushes and wheels on the bottom, if they are bound up it would stop the roomba from working. the two brush rollers can ... 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!

Hi, I have a Kenmore Whispertone canister vacuum that I purchased in 2007. The model # is 116.22271503C, which seems to confuse the parts people. I need to buy a new powerhead & a few months ago was given a price of $75, but now Sears Canada tells me the part # is 20 116KC5OXBZRZUO1 described as Power Mate Assembly for $192.99. I thought the Power Mate was the small powerhead for stairs, upholstery, etc. Have they located the wrong part for me, or is this really what it costs?? Thanks in advance

Electrolux power nozzle, model 1692, power cuts on and off. I don't have the manual for it, but I'm trying to remove and clean the brush compartment.

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
