Question about Vacuums
Kenmore Progressive Cannister Model# 116.20812007. Power mate doesn't work anymore. Has been in and out of Sears Parts Center on same issue since 2003 and the repair only lasts for a short time. It started on an intermittent basis but now just won't work. Suspect a hose problem.
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.
