Question about Kenmore 25512/ 25513 Progressive Canister Vacuum
This is a very common problem on your series of Kenmore canister vacuums. It is the result of a part inside the handle of the hose (where you would have your hand) which has broken and no longer properly supports and keeps in place the electrical receptacle that feeds electricity from the canister to the power head. If you provide a model number, I can provide an exploded parts diagram which will show you the likely culprit.

Hey Dude! & Dave! I am having the same problem with an older model 116 (whispertone). This is what I came up with.
What I did to fix it was take it all apart (and I mean everything) wipe it all down and carefully put it back together again. That seems to have fixed the issue. Theres a sensor at the bottom of the hose where it attaches to the canaster. I couldn't get it off the house initially but with some elbow grease I could and I found the sensor covered in gunk. Not sure if this was the real issue, but it helped!
