Having problems with your Beam Industries Vacuums ?

Beam powerhead looses power intermittently

\015 I have a Beam central vac with a serenty plus powerhead. Recently the power to the brush/light has started cutting out intermittenly. I cleaned the contacts where it connects to the handle, but that did not solve it. I realized that the power cuts out has the wand swivels up and down. There is a switch in there that that turns the head on when the wand is released by the foot pedal. Could this switch be acting up, or should I look for a different issue?\015

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.

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

No power. I was getting intermittent power with my miele s558 midsize canister, but it was predicated with me fiddling with the retractable cord to get it to come on and then not move the canister while I was vacuuming.

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
