Having problems with your Kenmore Vacuums ?

Central Vacuum works when power switch on canister is turned on, but will not turn on when connecting the hose.


Answers :

DOes it not work on any of your wall inlet valves? If all wall inlets appear dead take a coin making a connection with both of the contacts inside the throat of the valve. If the vacuum turns on the problem is in your hose or the powerhead. If nothing happens plug in your hose and try wiggling the low voltage wires at the vacuum as you leave the hose plugged in with the swich on your in the "on" position ( if you have a switch) If still nothing unscrew all valve plates from wall leaving wires attatched. Inspect all connections for loose wires or wires that have come off terminals. .

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
