Having problems with your Kenmore 25512/ 25513 Progressive Canister Vacuum ?
Power head does not activate
\015 The power head does not come on even though there is power to the switch and female connection under the handle. There is continuity between the male connections on the wand and the power head, but when I plug the wand into the handle (female connections), there is no power transferred through the wand. It appears that the female and male connectors do not make contact. I have tried polishing the contacts, bending the male prongs, twisting the unit when connected, but they still do not make contact. I have a model 116 and wonder if I need to replace the female contacts (and where could I buy them?)Thanks, Jim\015

The brush wouldn't work when the selector switch was in carpet mode. Took the power head apart and removed the motor. Everything o.k. in the power head. Checked and found that the neutural wire had pulled out of the connector, the connector was never crimped at the factory. What a day! Took 2 hours and a large pizza to get it done. Neutral wire was in the hose just below the handle. Reconnected the wire and crimped it, put everything back together. It works!!!!

I recently lost power to the power head. Thinking the hose was not sending current to the head, I bought a new hose. It did not solve my problem. I have since noticed that a warning symbel is appearing that indicates what looks like a key with TA inside. The vacumn has good suction. Please advise John.
