Warm is normal for 12 amp appliances like most vacuums. Hot is not normal and you should have the unit serviced before any further use.

Why does my plug get extremely warm or hot?


Inside the wire, several strands of wire are broke. Heat is caused by less strands of wire that have to carry more current in amps. This is a safety and fire hazard. Cut the old plug off by cutting the cord about 2 inches away from the plug. Strip the wires carefully. Do not cut or break off any strands of wire. Install a new plug. Make sure you buy a round plug that has a round opening for your round cord. A lot of plugs are for flat type of cords only.

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.

Why does the plug get hot when the heater is on


Sometimes the electric cord isn't made to handle the wattage of your heater....either change the cord or use a heavier extension cord.

Why is it important that the resistance of an extension cord be small when it is used to power an electric heater?


Hi pipay thinti...
You must have little resistance (large wire) in the electrical cord because you want the elements of the heater to heat up and not the cord...if you had high resistance in the cord it would get too hot and melt the plastic coatings.

Vacuum getting hot in filter area


That's not abnormal, unless it's getting very hot. Have you changed the filter recently? If the filter is blocked it will get hotter than normal. the filter should be changed every 4 to six weeks of normal usage.

Dyson 07 plug gets very hot after prolonged vacuuming


Electrical current passes through the electric cord and plug - it will get warm, that's normal. If the problem is worse where you smell an electrical burning smell, only an authorized dealer can fit a new power cord to your vacuum cleaner. Call the Dyson helpline, they will let you know who the closest repair dealer in your area is.

Hot cord


likely after all these years that the motor is starting to go bad and draw more amps thasn it should. a new motor at a vac dealer is your best bet. it was likely made by panasonic, so a new panasonic is your best bet, and less $$$than the kenmore for the same vacuum. sears parts are extremely expensive
