Question about Kenmore 23612 Progressive PowerMate Bagged Canister Vacuum
I have a Kenmore Progressive Vacuum Cleaner Model 116.22612-05 that sucks but does not agitate when button on carpet mode. I then tried hooking up to Powermate Jr. and the same thing happens. There is probably a short but in what part? Is it the selector switch or the hose attachment that needs to be replaced or something else?
I went ahead and ordered a switch and wire harness from Sears Parts online(using repair parts list that came with vacuum cleaner) which cost me about $45.00 including shipping. After receiving the parts I first tried replacing the switch and no difference. Then I changed the wire harness that contains the receptacle where the plug from the extension wand plugs in. Sure enough, that solved the problem! Apparently the plug receptacle was worn out causing the short. It took some effort to get the Handle Assembly apart and then back together; however, I did it and broke nothing! I am so stoked as I know I probably saved at least $100.00 by doing this myself!! And if I were to send the switch back, my cost would only be about $30.00!
It is amazing what a person can do when using the parts list that came with the appliance and the internet to order parts!!!!
