How to replace the Terminal Cover on top of the Extension Wand

I had a bad connection between the Wire Harness on the handle and the Terminal Cover on the Extension Wand. I replaced the wire harness, the the vacuum runs great. However, I bought the terminal cover because one of the contact pins looks "rusty" and I don't want to cause another poor connection. Will you please provide instructions for the removal of the Terminal Cover? I've played around with this enough to know that I may start to break something if I apply pressure in the wrong places.

I saw this in another FixYa post

it tells midway down how to get access to the wand fuse (which has the two-prong terminals)
Comment posted on Feb 09, 20082bubbles ok here we go.. fine a small file that will fit the holes at the bottom of the wand and break the file so that the flat end fit into the wand. please make sure the wand is not plug in to anything. now put it into the hole and try to clean it out gently not too hard or you will damage the contacts. after that grab a needle nose pilers and very gently press the contacts. not a lot or it won't fit back into the power-mate. ok now for the top of the wand. if you look at the wand where the button is to extent the wand. on each side you will see a small clip. with a small flat head screw driver push into the clip at the point closer to the wand tube. it will pop out. make sure to check the clip to see how to put it back in. after both clips are out you will notice a that the clips left a gap. the back part of the wand or cover will now slip off. push it toward the gap. then up. after removing the cover. you will see a ribbon strip which is attached to the prongs or fuse .you can remove the fuse and then clean the contacts. please be careful. once this is done you then put it all together and try it out. the fuse is a part that you can buy at sears if you have to. let me know if this helps you out. if it seems like too much just take it to sears and ask them to replace the wand fuse for you instead of replacing the whole wand. hope this helps .

How do i put the wand back together on a rainbow e-series ?


The wire schematics in the handle assembly has four total wires. Two from the hose and two from the Receptacle Nozzle. Take one wire from the hose and one wire from the receptacle and connect together. Take the second wire from the hose and connect to the Switch Handle PN2E PN2. Take the second wire from the receptacle and connect to the other switch terminal. If you need more details, you can download the schematics at Rainbow Vacuum Schematics or you can call us at 800-523-0510.

I have an epic 6500 sr. I need to take apart the handle on the wand to clean it (I unknowingly vacuumed over a puddle of urine, yuk!) It is a replacement wand. I've unscrewed the only screw I can find...


Look on the handle near the wand handle release button for extension and there is a little round cover, under that is another screw...usually it is a tamper proof torque screw.

Ametek wiring diagram for a Oreck XL21 600 ECB


I cannot find a wiring diagram from where I am located right now, but I do know that the black wire coming from the power cord goes to the top side of the motor when you have it laying upside down with the cover off, and it will go to the tab towards the back of the vacuum. Sometimes they put a black dot beside the tab and if that is there you put your wires from the power cord on those. You will also have two wires coming from your light bar in front and the white wire will usually have a piggy-back terminal that your white wire from the power cord attaches to as well. If there are no black dots beside the terminal tabs the white wires will connect to the bottom terminal on the opposite side from the black power cord wire. It will usually be on the lower side of the motor as well. The black wire from the light bar will go on the remaining terminal tab as there is usually only three tabs on the motor. I will check back later this week to see if this has helped you and if not I should be able to get a diagram this weekend.

Power Head keeps cutting in and out while vacuuming???Canister motor keeps running but the power head starts and stops like there is a short or some loss of connection somewhere. Any ideas?


My kenmore progressive vacuum had the same problem. The electrical terminal at the bottom of the wand was corroded. I used a flat head screw driver to scrape the female portion of the connector as best as I could. I then took off the plastic cover on the vacuum head that had the male portion of the connection. I used sand paper to clean the two connection prongs. I also spread them apart slightly for better connection (more interference) when the connection is made. I reassembled, and our vacuum is working fine now. I hope that helps.

I am having trouble getting the wand extension to go all the way into the flexible tubing so that i can close off the top.


is it a dyson? make sure the top handle is snapped in properly and that will release the clip and allow the wand to go in

Loose electrical contact in extension wand


You have a loose connection at one of several possible locations.Inspect the contacts at the top and bottom of the wand .IF they are black or coppery or look melted, both pairs of contacts, male and female will need to be replaced.
Try to wiggle and twist the wand at top, then at bottom. If this does not reveal the short, work your way back down the hose towards the a vac itself, starting behind the hose handle.

Carpet attachment


Check the plug ends at the top of the wand and the plug going into the hose handle, also at the bottom of the wand. It sounds like they may be burnt, if so they will need to be replaced. One cause of these connections going bad is not turning the power head off when connecting or disconnecting. Therre are other causes, the switch in the handle is going bad, also some of these cannisters have a relay mounted by the vac motor, sometimes they go bad.

Powermate connection flickers


I had the same problem. Sears has replacement parts for mine (Model 11625813506) here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=11625813506&pop=flush

Rather than pay $10 for a new cover terminal (which I probably couldn't install myself anyway), $99 for a whole new wand, and possibly $108 for a whole new hose (ridiculous prices, btw), I took a small flat head screwdriver and scraped off the dirt/corrosion on the terminal pins. This didn't resolve my problem, but I noticed the connection between the extension wand and the "Power mate" hose handle was loose. The handle could wiggle/slide about 1/8" when connected to the wand, creating the loose connection. I used the screwdriver to bend the pins down slightly (in the direction away from the wand tube), to compensate for the loose connection. This worked like a charm, fixed the intermittent circuit contact completely, and was very easy to do. I'd highly recommend trying this, before doing anything more complicated.

Losing power to stick/floor vacuum


if you have an extension wand, the replacement will cost about $100.00. there is a way to repair both the pwr-cord on the brush assemble and the wand, but it depends on how much damage there is. also you need to check the contacts where the wand connects with the handle,and the prongs on the handle.

let me know if you still need help
