Question about Vacuums
Vacuum cleaner only runs when hose is inserted into Power Mate attachment, and only when switch (located on the hose unit) is set to "carpet." Does not turn on when set to "floors).
When hose is not hooked up to the Power Mate, I can't turn the unit on at all.
thanks for any perspective you can offer -
Sounds like you have a switch problem. Some of the Sears models also have a relay in them, which could be bad. The complete model isn't stated so couldn't look it up. But you can go to Sears.com, click on parts, enter your complete model number and a parts list with diagram of parts will come up.

Yes sears has the part if you search it on their website but the switch is included with the wiring harness for the powermate handle. total with shipping is over 37.00. i just need the switch and cannot find one sold separately anywhere.
