Question about Kenmore 25812 / 25813 Progressive Bagged Canister Vacuum

1 Answer

VACUUM WON'T SHUT OFF

MY VACUUM WON'T SHUT OFF EVEN AFTER SLIDING THE "ON/OFF" SWITCH INTO THE "OFF" POSITION. I HAVE ALREADY REPLACED THE ELECTRONIC SWITCH (SEARS #8191600) TO NO AVAIL. PROBLEM STILL PERSISTS. SHOULD I REPLACE THE WIRE HARNESS (SEARS # KC37GBZTZV06)???

Model #116.25813508 won't shut off at the canister. This thing's only 13 months old (coincidence that the warranty is for 1 year? Yes.)

    I have the same problem with a similar Kenmore vacuum and they have no service available in the city I live in. Did this part work for you? If so, did you install yourself?

Vacuum works but won't shut off


Switch is broken in the "ON" position. Just plug it into a power strip outlet and use the switch on the power strip outlet to turn it on and off.

Good day!


Normally when the motor is easily moved back and forth means that it have a proper lubrication,proper alignment and no clogs.

When the motor and the belt is OK the problem could be on electrical wiring and switch.

If found electrical switch burned out you need to replaced it because when the switch is burn the contact of that switch is open even you turn it ON.that's why the motor is not function because the voltage is not pass through the circuit because of open switch.You need to replaced it.
And check some fuses if any and other burned electrical wire.Replaced it also.

Thank you and don't forget to rate my answer.

Vacuum won't shut off. Switch appears good. Won't shut off with hose removed.


The "vacuum won't shut off" problem is caused by a faulty triac (electronic component) on the P.C.B. assembly. You have two choices, depending on your handiness:
  1. Easiest: Replace the PCB: P.N.=KC86WBZRZ000
  2. More difficult: Replace the triac: P.N.=BTA16-600CW (ST Microelectronics): http://www.st.com/internet/com/TECHNICAL_RESOURCES/TECHNICAL_LITERATURE/DATASHEET/CD00002265.pdf
The PCB costs about $25.00 from Sears, whereas the triac costs about $1.50. Sears will not sell the triac - you'll have to find an electronics parts supplier.

Vacuum will not shut off


Either the switch has a contact inside, or the wiring in the harness to motor are making contact.
This can be verified using a multimeter , preferably reading continuity (Ohms) on switch contacts, with power disconnected, that is safer than reading voltages.
This will tell if responsible is the switch or the wiring harness.

Vacuum will not shut off


Sounds like you have wires crossed at the switch. The 2 wires coming in go to the center posts, 2 to the power head & 2 to the main motor.

The shut off switch is stuck to the on position


This sounds like you have an internal problem with the electrical switch. I would recommend you take it to a vacuum dealer who has experience with this model. This is a relatively simple reapir for a pro shop to handle.

Vacuum power won't shut off


You didn't give brand and model number, some vacuums have a relay in them and they stick and stay on. If you have one, it will have to be replaced.

VACUUM WON'T SHUT OFF


Need a model number to be sure, but alot of the Sears cannisters have a relay and it is found mounted in the motor comparment, it may be sticking in the on position.

You can sometimes find the PCB from a 3rd-party supplier. For example, this one on EBay: Mel-Co KC86WBZRZ000
