There are a lot of things that could cause this problem because the wire runs through the hose. There is a connection on both ends you should check to make sure they are clean.

With the machine running try to "wiggle" the hose connections to see if the head gets power intermittently

Loss of suction o=with hose tool


Hose or tool is probably clogged. Is this an upright? Bagged or bagless? Have you changed the bag and filters? Cleaned out the brush and hose that goes from the brush area to the collection bag/cup? The only reason for a vacuum cleaner to lose suction but still work is a clog or dirty filter which blocks the air flow. Follow the air flow from the brushes to the bag/dirt cup. If the machine is bagged, change the bag. I use another vacuum cleaner to do this.While your at it, might as well change the belt.

you have got dust in the micro switch and it is not latching on, if you look at this and clean it, that will solve your problem, however blowing the motir has probably wrecked the motor bearings.

The beater of my kenmore vacuum won't turn on - the primary light goes on but none of the sensor lights go on.


Kenmore vacs generally have three male contacts at the machine end.Internally when the hoses swivels these contacts run on three brass rings which can also get dirty due to proximity to dirt. They can get dirty or dirt can fall into the corresponding female socket where the hose meets the vac. If you have just changed the bag inspect these connections near the intake port on the vac.
The working LED means you have a partial connection. Also try wiggling and twisting gently at the handle of the hose and where the wand connects to the hose and the power head elbow... you have 4 connections between vac and head

Full bag system works properly, but doesn't reset easily


Either there is something wrong with your switch. Which it doesnt sound like it. Take it to your dealer or call another one it sounds like the control valve needs to be replaced. I am a dealer 1-866-966-9350.

Power head stops and starts


Sounds like there is definately something stuck inside it. You;ll need to dismantle the floor head carefully using a screwdriver. Make sure your machine is switched off though if it is a power head and not an air turbine turbo head. Once inside check the main roller brush as well as the side caps as these can become clogged. Also check the main dirt channel leading to the pipes of the vacuum. 
Dont forget to rate, thanks.

Generic problem for all Vacuums
Vacuum cleaner power loss
Posted by fudpucker on Apr 25, 2008
Vacuum loses power while operating. Just shuts down and will not restart by toggling switch. After a brief (cool down?) period it will start.
Is there a breaker/reset? Does it have a feature that automatically shuts it down when the bag is full?
I can't locate my owner's manual, so am completely in the dark or dirt.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Depending on the Brand name and Model # there is what they call Thermal Switches on some of the vacuums that prevent the motor from over heating and possible burn out of the motor If the hose is clogged, the bag is full or the filter is dirty and the air does not flow threw the filter. Any one of the three situations could cause the vac to say “cut out” and stop the motor. So check with your local vac dealer.
So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
Thanks, Don – The Vac Man
Go Ahead. Use Us.
