Question about Kenmore 35912 / 35913 Progressive Upright Vacuum
We have purchased a new power cord and my technically inclined husband can't figure it out! Please help. I need to vacuum!
What about the cord ,that he cannot figure out....

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.
