Answers :

Sounds like you have a switch problem. Some of the Sears models also have a relay in them, which could be bad. The complete model isn't stated so couldn't look it up. But you can go to Sears.com, click on parts, enter your complete model number and a parts list with diagram of parts will come up.
Yes sears has the part if you search it on their website but the switch is included with the wiring harness for the powermate handle. total with shipping is over 37.00. i just need the switch and cannot find one sold separately anywhere.

Kenmore canister model 116.25513506 wont turn on. when handle switch is turned to floor. vac motor does not turn on. When switch is turned to carpet, floor nozzle works but vac motor does not. I checked fuse, all o.k. checked continuity for plug, o.k. removed wires for bag full switch...motor wont run. I wired motor directly power cord...motor runs. Thinking it must be the circuit board, how do I bypass it or test it?

I had the vacuum cleaner question about the canister and the wand/powerhead... the Kenmore Progressive Vacuum canister model 116.25812 and the canister not powering off without unplugging the vacuum. The solution I received that they both run on their own switch so it is normal makes sense. However, is there a power switch on the canister anywhere? The only way for the canister to be turned off is by unplugging it. Any ideas? One would think there would be a switch. I am new to fixya and hope
