Question about Kenmore Vacuums
Hello rperlin. Your AC cord most likely has a broken wire in it. Please be careful is this action I suggest and DON'T touch a bare wire. Plug unit in, turn power on, now sowly flex the AC cord close to the plug, no sparks or motor starts, flex the cord near the vacuum, ext. If you get an action you have found the location of your broken wire. Replacing it will be a chore. Make notes on wire color and witch one went where. A factory replacement may be costly, Visit your local hardware store & ask for help in electrical dept. Electrical lesson#2. Aquire a DVM or more commonly VOM(meter) & check for ohms in the AC cord. IF you elminate the cord HOUSTON WE HAVE A PROBLEM. Your switch, motor brushes, or control switches internal are the problem. Good luck.
