I had the same problem. Sears has replacement parts for mine (Model 11625813506) here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=11625813506&pop=flush

Rather than pay $10 for a new cover terminal (which I probably couldn't install myself anyway), $99 for a whole new wand, and possibly $108 for a whole new hose (ridiculous prices, btw), I took a small flat head screwdriver and scraped off the dirt/corrosion on the terminal pins. This didn't resolve my problem, but I noticed the connection between the extension wand and the "Power mate" hose handle was loose. The handle could wiggle/slide about 1/8" when connected to the wand, creating the loose connection. I used the screwdriver to bend the pins down slightly (in the direction away from the wand tube), to compensate for the loose connection. This worked like a charm, fixed the intermittent circuit contact completely, and was very easy to do. I'd highly recommend trying this, before doing anything more complicated.
Your vac has the extension wand. where the wand meets the handle is where you need to check. at the top of the wand is two pins. that is a part that is call a fuse or cover terminal. you need to have that change. also check the bottom of the wand,see if there is any discoloration. there is more but if this is too much for you now, then take it to the Sears repair center.
good luck

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

Rainbow shampooer The soap dispenser on my Rainbow is not dispensing soap when I flip the switch to 'soap' mode. All connections are intact. All plastic hoses are intact. What do you think is going on? The soap bottle connects to a little straw that appears to be free of obstruction, however, it connects into a sealed casing on the hose.


The little "wash/rinse" switch on some of the Aquamate units shuts off the soap flow by kinking the tube inside the housing. If you leave the switch in the rinse position (therefore, kinked) when you're done using it, it may dry in the kinked positi ... Rainbow E series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum

I have used my Steam Vac for carpeting, but until today, had never tried cleaning upholstery with the spin-scrub brush. I spent a miserable afternoon trying to control the spray, which seemed to go everywhere AROUND the furniture, but not ON the furniture!

I can sympathize. My vac came with two handheld attachments. I have better luck with the handheld attachment that doesn't have the spin-scrub pads.
