Should I replace the vacuum hose or simply shorten it if a hole developed near the vacuum canister base? What are the disadvantages of this? For now I am doing duct tape, which is not so elegant as dust...

You can just shorten it as long as there is not a underlying power supply in the hose itself. after you shorten it use a "hose clamp" to hold the shorten hose in place. :)

Kenmore Powermate power head not working

I've got the same problem. Try checking out the electrical connection where the hose attaches to the canister. The hot male terminal is corroded and the female socket is burned out. Its an unfortunate design flaw that every time you open the vacuum to replace the bag the electrical connection disconnects and reconnects. Not sure if I can find replacement parts for a 10 year old vacuum or if a home-made re-wiring job is in order. Will find out tomorrow.

Vacuum not picking up dirt

The neck in your power head is likely clogged. Disconnect from the wand and look inside. Also check the wand.Since you have suction on the bare floor the hose is likely not blocked.

Power Head doesn't work

Are you talking about the large power head (ised for floors) or the smaller power head (for upholstery)?

If you are talking about the large one the first thing I would check is the belt (accessed by turning the tiny lock knob on the bottom with a flathead screwdriver).

If the belt looks ok the next thing I would check is make sure an accumulation of hair hasn't built up on the ends of the roller....take the roller out and turn the roller by hand holding onto one of the shoudl move freely....

Bad bearing on kenmore whisperbelt beater brush.

I thought this was a free forum. I do not intend to hire a bunch of experts to find out if a bearing can be found for my vacuum cleaner when the entire brush assembly in $39.99.
This is a very tricky way to get unsuspecting people sucked into paying for something they thought was free.
Bad business, sorry.

Kenmore cannister vacuum tube - reattaching connectors

Make sure that the two prongs that go over the hose are going in the correct slot in the cuff. If in the wrong one, the cuff won't snap into place. I have had to slam the end of the hose on the work bench while holding the cuff to push it all of the way on. Some I have heard warm up the cuff in hot water or a hair dryer to make it more pliable.

Kenmore canister hose

The part number for the hose is 4370993, you can go to, put int he part number and order it. You will only get just the hose, you have to take the ends off of the old one and put them on the new hose.
