I have a Kenmore Upright Model # 11630412001 with a broken power cord


Normally, you would leave the current power connections attached and then line up or label the new cord lines with the old.

There should be a common ground, easy enough to dsitinguish.
A hot, normally black.
A return, normally white.

These may be swapped it the existing wire colors are.

Red = new black
Black = new white
Green or Blue = Green or bare.

I'm a bit surprised t read your post as the cord should have come with connection instructions if the replacement cord is different in color scheme from the old.

ALWAYS TAKE SAFETY PRECAUTIONS WHEN WORKING ON HOT LIVE POWER. NEVER MAKE CONNECTION CHANGES WHILE THE VACUUM IS PLUGGED IN.

IF AFTER YOU CONNECT THE NEW LINES, TEST THIS BY TURNING ON THE VACUUM AND TURNING IT OFF RIGHT AWAY. IF YOU HAVE POPPED A BREAKER OR SEEN BURNING, YOU HAVE TO SWITCH THE BLACK AND WHITE WIRES.

The best thing is to always go online and find the wiring layout for you model.

If you have any doubt, pleast post the wire colors you do see now coming to the connection terminal and post the colors coming out of your new power cord.

Regards,
Worldvet

How do I take about my Dyson DC11 to replace the retractable power cord assembly


While it doesn't require a collection bag, a Dyson-brand vacuum cleaner can still suffer the problems of wear and tear that are prone to any vacuum cleaner--for example, a frayed power cord. If the power cord of your Dyson vacuum cleaner has become frayed, change it immediately to avoid a dangerous electrical mishap. You will need a replacement cord from an electronics service center, along with a few common household tools. You do not need electrical skills to complete the task.
Follow this steps on how to replaced the power cord assembly:

1 Unplug the Dyson vacuum cleaner's power plug from the wall outlet. Press the button on the top front of the plastic collection cover. Lift the cover off the front of the vacuum cleaner and place it aside.

  • 2 Trace the power cord to where it enters the back bottom of the vacuum cleaner. Remove the screws from the panel surrounding the power cord with a Phillips screwdriver. Remove the panel. Aim the beam of a flashlight inside the compartment so that you can see where the wires at the end of the power cord wrap around two screws on the motor assembly. Loosen these screws with a Phillips jeweler's screwdriver.

  • 3 Pull the power cord out of the compartment and dispose of it properly. Strip a 1/2 inch of insulation from the ends of the two wires of the replacement power cord. Run the wires into the compartment along the path of the original power cord--pushing the wires into the grooves inside the compartment.

  • 4 Tie a knot on the cord on the inside of the compartment to prevent the cord from being pulled out.

  • 5 Wrap the exposed end of each wire of the power cord around the loosened screws. Tighten the screws. Replace the panel and reattach the screws. Stand the vacuum cleaner right side up. Place the bottom of the plastic collection cover into the bottom front slot on the vacuum cleaner. Push the cover back on the front of the vacuum cleaner.

    The lead on our machine is becoming frayed - is it possible to replace the lead and if so, how is it achieved? John Tuffley


    If you are refering to the Electrical Power Cord? Yes, this can be easily replaced or repaired.
    Depending upon where the cord is damaged, you can either cut it a little shorter and install a replacement electrical plug end (available at any electrical parts store (Lowes, Home Depot, Radio Shack, etc) for about $2.50.
    Or if the cord is damaged near the vacuum, you can purchase another cord or even make up one yourself how ever long you want it within reason.

    What is easiest way to replace electric cord that has frayed at entrance to the vacuum?


    I would take it to a qualified repair shop for this type if repair. Without knowing the specifics, most vacuums have a strain relief that needs to be squeezed and pryed out. Once this is out the cord can be replaced, but will need to have the correct type of electrical connectors and tools to make the connection. Most cords cost about $15 - $20

    No power in power nozzle
    Posted by pjs5451 on Apr 06, 2008
    Vacuumed with power nozzle one day working fine took attachment off to use crevice tool reattached power nozzle and no power whatsoever.

    Hello,
    I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Rainbow E Series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum. The Rainbow Power Nozzle does have a reset button on the newer model on the top of the power nozzle, just push it and it should reset, or check all your pigtail connections to make sure they are connection and the cord leading to the actual Rainbow Vacuum itself. Out in left field might be that the power nozzle motor could be shorting out or not working or dead and might be in need of replacement. Check the cord for any frays or bad connections. If you have a problem please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area. 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.
