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 .
