Having problems with your Vacuums ?

I have a Kenmore canister serial number DB12027279, model 116-2234590. The problem is that the power cord plug gets very hot. Please advise what to do. Thank you.

Answers :

Just a suggestion, as the debris enters the machine, it has to pass the motor. The motor has vents around it. Enough "debris" gets in that motor, the motor starves for power, which inturns make the media, the cord, work harder.

Electrolux Centralux I have a Electrolux Centralux. When I plug the hose in at one of the wall outlets the motor will not start.

Our kenmore progressive model #11634922 was working fine today. And then - it's not. Plugged in - nothing is working on it. We let it cool down (though it didn't seem hot). Still nothing - no light, no motor. Tried it in some other plugs that we know are functioning well - and still nothing. Any idea what might be wrong with it? It's six years old but doesn't get heavy use. Thanks so much ~ Susan Golden
