Having problems with your Kenmore Vacuums ?

Power won't turn off to powermate unit.

\015 I have a kenmore Vacuum model 11623912300. I recently replaced a part that connects the hose to the body and now when I plug it in the ''powermate, carpet'' portion turns on and won't turn off. The on/off switch on the handle does turn off the vacuum itself, but has not effect on the power to the powermate carpet sweeper part. Any suggestions? I have verified that the part I replaced is the correct part, per the manual. Sears wants an arm/leg to diagnose the problem and then tell me repair costs. It may be cheaper to just buy a new vacuum? Any help appreciated.\015

Answers :

THIS PROBLEM IS CAUSED BY THE POWER CONTROL BOARD INSIDE THE VACUUM, FOR SHORT IT IS CALLED THE "PCB BOARD", CALL SEARS WITH YOUR MODEL NUMBER AND GET A PRICE, THE SERVICE CENTER FOR SEARS HAVE THE PARTS IN STOCK MOST TIMES AND CAN INSTRUCT U ON INSTALLING THE PART, IF THE PART IS LESS THAN $50 REPLACE IT, IF THE VACUUM IS REALLY OLD OR THE PART IS NO LONGER AVAILIABLE THEN IT WOULD MOST LIKEY BE BEST TO REPLACE THE VACUUM, BUT CALL 1ST.

Shark s3325 stopped working while steaming; thinking the unit had ran out of water I allowed unit to cool before refilling, however unit over flowed with only 700ml water added. When I plugged unit back into outlet it would not turn on (red light was not on) but I hear a click upon plugging in unit, when turning unit power button on and when turning on the handle switch. Please advise how to resolve this problem.

I have a Eureka Upright vacuum (4800 Series). When I try to start it by turning the switch on, it wont. For few days, I was able to get around this problem by repeatedly turning the switch on and off until it turned on but that does not work any more. Could it be something related to the switch it self or the power cable. My wife mentioned that one of my kids might have pulled the power cable too hard (at the back of the vacuum). Any help to solve this problem will be very much appreciated. Tha
