Power head not working


Check connection from hose to the main unit. Very important to make sure that the hose has a solid connection to the front of the machine. If not, then the receptacles can't make good contact to allow the power nozzle to turn on.

I read the post about the Silver Moon continualy shutting off and requiring the new hose part SES 125. However, what i have noticed with my Silver Moon is that it only shuts off when using the floor brush....


Hi.
My wife has the same vacumn, and has already replaced the hose, and again it was shutting off continously with the power head.
Rather then spring another $150.00 plus for a new hose, I decided to take it apart to see if it had a shorted wire..
There are several small screws along the length of the control portion, as well as two small screws that hold the end cap (where the hose goes into the heavy plastic control part),

When I got it apart I did not see any shorted wires...however what I discvovered was where the hose "swivels" are 3 metal contact bands, and some electrical lubricant.
On the other side was a small circuit board with three paper thin copper contacts which lined up with the metal bands.
The bands looked a bit worn.
So I ever so gently bent the copper contacts out just a tiny amount further, and gently cleaned (with a bit of alcohol) the metal bands to take justy a tiny bit of what looked like an excessive amount of electrical grease.

I reassembled the unit...and so far so good.

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.

GE canister vac 106766 power not going to brush head


Try checking the hose connector cord (short cord from bezel outlet to hose). Also, check the prongs on on extension wands.

Filter Queen Powerhead Not Working


is it the part where the hose connects to the wand or is where the wand connects to the power head? and what side keeps falling out. it sounds to me that its either a hose or a wand issue. unfortunatly the cord itself cannot be replaced and if the problem is a worn out connector in the hose which is possible it would require a replacement hose and if it is on the wand end it would require a new wand. either are fairly cheep on ebay. or you can possibly find one used at a local vacuum dealer. dont buy new. save yourself some money if possible.

I'm using Miele Medivac vacuum and I just sucked in a small plastic eye drop container by accident (I sometimes take off the brush part to **** in 'small enough' articles). And it is jammed in the part where the plastic hose connector bends. I think I can take it out if I can just disconnect the long necked plastic hose connector that connects the metal wand part and the hose part. Is it designed to be disconnected or should I not even try it?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The long necked plastic hose connector is made to be replaced because they do brake upon occasion and the part is made to come apart. If you need assistance please contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer or to contact the Miele factory to get a owner’s manual to check the trouble shooting guide and or a schematic of the breakdown of how to un-install the

long necked plastic hose connector or gooseneck of which some people call it. 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.

Hose connection broken.


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
If you have a broken hose connection, and not knowing the brand name of the vacuum, I can suggest 2 things. If you have an electric hose, meaning that it is attached to a electric power head or power nozzle, some can be repaired depending on what was wrong, but most of the time you have to replace the hose, some pigtails can be replaced but if the electric connection is broken, you need to replace the hose. If it is a non-electric hose, you can use a shrink tube, or cut out the broken part and use a hose cuff to join them together, so just shorten the hose and screw back on the original ends. In either case you need to check with a local vac dealer. Or you can make a new hose with new ends and leave the canister @ the bottom of the stairs and go up with just the long hose, unless you have an upright then you have to make it the length that is on the upright. Or replace it with the genuine hose from the factory or use the ends from the old hose on the replacement hose. 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.

Blue moon works intermittently


Take the hose handle apart and look at the bottom side of the switch circuit board. Sometimes a contact or 2 break loose from the solder and will work intermittenly. Resolder the contacts if this is the case, put back together and try again.
