Re: hose from cannister leaking

It's not made to be repaired. Use it the way it is or buy a new one.

Need to find specs to test hose and electrical connections

There are no hose specs. You have continuity or you don't. These are very problematic canisters as they age.
Kenmore canisters are very subject to dirt build up on internal contact rings where they swivel at the elbow adjoining the vac.
They are also prone to intermittent connections at the handle/wand junction and at the wand/power head connection.
Due to the weight of the head there is a lot of strain on those connections.
You never fix half the connection, always both, male and female components in pairs for best results.

Hose has a break

Don't cut the hoser. It has electrical wiring. You will need to replace it. Unfortunately, Samsung doesn't make vac's anyore. you might find a repair place that can fix your hose, or can order a new one. . we can fix it here, we are in Albuquerque, NM. I hope this helps.

No suction

If the motor is running and is not full of dirt, and the hose is not plugged, the canister must be cracked or open somehow.

Sounds funny/shutting off after few minutes

Yup! Clogged hose on the back of the cannister! Unit is designed to shut off for 30 minutes when this happens to protect your motor. Remove top of hose where debris enters the cannister through a filter above it, then remove the other end of the hose from the bottom of the back of the cannister, take it outside and use something long that'll fit inside the hose to force out all the clogged debris and hair through the top of the hose.

Vacuum is not sucking. It is just over a year old.

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
It sounds like you have a clogged hose or a full bag, or dirty filter. The best way to check your electric hose id to run a marble or steel ball thru the hose and if it goes thru all the way then check the bag and filter, most times it is the vacuum hose. If it id the hose you can try to pull apart the clog from both ends using another central or canister vacuum. If not and the ball stops mid way thru the hose then you can use a broom handle with a round hook on the end so that it does not puncture the hose is any place and the round hook can loosen or break up your clog and then your suction will return, if you poke a hole in the vacuum hose there are repair kits that go on the outside of the hose that will slide over the hose and then you use a heat gun and shrink the hose repair kit down to size therefore plugging the leak. (Hose repair kit). 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.

Vacuum won't come on

The switch in the hose maybe bad, motor problem, or some of these cannisters have a relay mounted by the motor, it may be bad.

New Miele Red Star - Powerbrush not working

Wish you had listed the model number of the vac and of the powerhead. The plug going into the cannister, is it pushed all of the way in, also same for the plug going into the hose end? You can hook up the powerhead plug to a/c and see if it runs, if it does, then it is ok. Unhook the hose and plug and hook up a/c to that plug end and see if the powerhead will run, if not maybe the switch on the hose handle has a problem. Otherwise you have a problem in the cannister. If this is brand new, then it has a warranty, take in for repair.
