Kenmore Canister 116.20712007 replace power cord

Prong broke off plug and I need to replace the entire power cord on my kenmore, model number 116.20712007. I've ordered the spare part from searspartdirect.com and will have it soon.

Any advice on replacing the power cord will be swell. I've heard its pretty easy to do.

    Hi, I have the same exact problem for the same exact model. Prong broke and got stuck in the socket. Looking to order the part and replace it. Any advice appreciated.

    ...same problem, same model. Is this common?? I've never had this problem with any other products. Perhaps a manufacturing defect.

SOURCE: Assemble Swivel Assembly onto Kenmore Canister vac

Got this post off this web site...I just replaced my swivel and it worked:
http://www.managemyhome.com/mmh/answers/Answers.action#l4q110567
To install a new swivel assembly, you will need 2 small, flat tip screw drivers. Unplug the vacuum. Push the screw drivers in between the hose and the collar where you see the seams in the plastic collar on the end where the hose enters the collar. This will release tabs that hold the collar to the swivel. Pry and pull the collar back over the hose and then pull the small screwdrivers out of the collar. Slide the collar back along the hose. Unplug the wiring connections from the hose. Pull the hose wires up and out of the holder on the swivel assembly. Lift the tabs on the side of the hose and pull it off of the swivel. Push the new swivel onto the hose. Align the hose wires and secure them in the holder. Plug the wires from the swivel into the hose wires (blue to blue, white to white). Secure the swivel wires into the wire holder on the swivel assembly. Push the collar back up the hose and onto the swivel with the plastic seams aligned with the tabs on each side of the hose. Snap the collar securely into place.

I had the same problem and could not find the other screws. You need to pry off the power cord retraction button, you will find two more screws under there. It's pretty easy after that!!!!

Beater bar lost power - even after pushing reset button


Hi There,

If you've already tried resetting the power brush, and it still won't come on, this indicates that your electrical hose has most likely gone bad, and needs to be replaced.

This is actually a pretty common problem on Panasonic canisters, as well as Kenmore canisters (Panasonic makes Kenmore canisters).

In order to confirm this, what you'll need to do is purchase a simple electrical tester from Home Depot, or Lowes, and test the hose to make sure you have power making it through the hose.

To test this, remove the hose from the wand so you just have the handle of the hose in your hand with nothing attached to it. Put both ends of the electrical tester into the two female receptacles that plug into the wand, turn the machine on, and make sure that your hose is set to the carpet setting.

You definitely should have power coming to the hose at this part. If there is no power getting her, this indicates that your hose has gone bad. You may also just purchase a new hose (see link below), and if for any reason this doesn't fix your problem, you may return the hose to us within 60 days for a full 100% refund.

If the hose does have power at the end of it, repeat the process with the wand attached to the hose, but not connected to the power nozzle. If you have power getting to the hose, but not the wand, this indicates your wand has gone bad and need to be replaced. If you have power to your wand and hose, this probably indicates that the cord in the neck of the power nozzle has gone bad. Inspect the wire in the neck of the nozzle and see if you see any burning, or discoloration in on the male prongs.

I'm pretty sure that you'll just need to replace the hose, this is by far the most common problem on Panasonic canisters.

There are two different styles of hoses for Panasonic canisters. In order to find out which one is yours, remove the hose from the canister itself. Where the hose cuff plugs into the canister portion, look at the electrical prongs. There is either a 2 prong hose, or 3 prong hose. Here are links to both of the hoses. If your hose is a 3 position hose with a setting for bare floors, and carpets, then you have the 3 prong hose.

3 Prong Panasonic Canister Electrical Hose (Most Common)


2 Prong Panasonic Canister Electrical Hose


If this didn't fix your problem, please just use the comment section on this repair page and let me know what the outcome was after testing it with the electrical tester, and I'll be more then happy to try and do some more advanced diagnosing with you.

I hope this was helpful to you. If you found this helpful, please be so kind and rate my repair helpful, or leave feedback for me, this is really what keeps Fixya repair experts answering free questions, rather then just the premium questions that we get paid for. This is greatly appreciated.

How do I replace the electric cord for my Simplicity Shadow Vacuum cleaner model S13L? It's a canister cleaner.


Since the problem was with the plug on the electric cord, I replaced the plug, I cut the old plug, peel off the plastic cover on the cord, they were two wires, black & white, I purchased a new plug in a Home center, attach the wires to the new plug and it works just beautiful now, it was a two prong plug, which made it easier to fix.

Prong on one side of plug broken


You will need to get in touch with a Sears repair center and replace the cord and plug (they're one unit). If you do not have a local repair center, you can order the part online at searspartsdirect

How do I open a Kenmore 116 Vacuum?


You shouldn't need to remove the cord just to put a new plug on. Just cut the end off about 2 inches back, strip the outer insulation and the wire ends and install the new plug. Make sure there are no stray strands of wire hanging out from under the screws. I always solder the ends, so that I am dealing with a solid wire rather than twisted strands.

Powerhead does not work and the light doesn't work. Canister does work


Some of these has a reset button to push on the powerhead. Check the plug at the end of the hose handle, is it pushed in, if you push on it and it goes further in, then the tube in the handle will have to be replaced, the holding tab broke off of the tube. Pull the wand off and look at the prongs to see if they are burnt. it they are, then that power cord will have to replace as well as the want.
