Having problems with your Kenmore Vacuums ?

Replacing the extension wand terminal cover

\015 The terminal cover burned on my Kenmore 24614 Progressive Vacuum extension wand (Part #4370972). I need to replace the part (Part # 819172) but cannot remove the plastic wire cover running along the back of the extension wand to access the terminal or wires. Brute force seems like it will break the plastic. Are there hidden clips or some procedure that will allow the plastic to be removed ? Or, is there some other procedure that allows the replacement of the terminal cover without removing the plastic ?\015

Hi, It has been a while since I had to take one if these power heads apart. The Sears Service maual does little to explain the exact removal procedure of the cover. But from memory here goes.

\015\012There are pressure locks on each side. Use a smaller bladed screw driver or a thin knife blade (BE CAREFUL!) to release the cover by sliding the screwdriver under the bottom outside of the cover and GENTLY press inward toward the center cover. They are pretty stubborn and I did break one once. It took 2 weeks to get a replacement!! I do remember having to come back to it after many breaks because it was such a pain.

I have a Kenmore Progressive model 116.22812204 purchased 2003. The swivel (part nuumber 8195133) that attaches the extension wand to the power mate attachment snapped, so I can't keep the parts connected. I can order a replacement part on-line, but I don't know how to replace it - is it difficult to take apart the power-mate and replace this part? Do you have instructions on how to do it? Thanks!

My electrolux ambassador power wand quit working. I replaced the switch that shuts it off when the roller stops, but it wasn't the problem. The on/off switch is fine, the motor is fine.
