Question about Kenmore 22812 Bagged Canister Vacuum
I'm on my second Kenmore canister vac, and after a few years they have both had this problem. As you vacuum, the power brush is fine when you push it forward, but seems to die a little on the pull back. Almost like a connection is coming lose a little. Any suggestions of what I can do to fix, or tighten this? Thanks!!
Dirt gets inside and causes an intermitten problem on the hose where it connects with the canister there is a plastic cover where the three pins stick out. on the cover are two tabs on either side. press both tabs together and CAREFULLY pull cover off. on the hose are three rings,clean them off with a rag,then put a small amount of grease on them. with this done go to the cover. you will see a small part with the three pins. on top of the pins are flexable leads. CAREFULLY pull up on them,but not much,only a little. now clean the inside of the cover. now lets put it together. first take the small part with the pins and place it on the hose making sure that the flex leads match with the rings. now place cover over both til it snaps into place.

I would first check where the hose attaches to the canister. There are 3 power leads; if one is bent, this might produce what you describe. You might even try wiggling this connection to see if it affects operation.
The other place you might see a problem is where the hose connects to the handle itself. There are 3 wires that attach from the hose. This is a bit tricky to remove as it's basically a force fit and take some effort to remove.
