Question about Kenmore 25614 / 25615 Progressive Bagged Canister Vacuum
I have a progressive canister 25614 and it turns on and off when you are vacuuming. Seems like you have to keep the hose in just the right position. It is about 2 years old but has been doing this for a long time. Do you know what needs to be replaced?
I saw this on another FixYa post -- it tells you how to remove the wand cover safely---
