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.

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

Almost certainly a blown triac on the circuit board in the canister - kenmore part number KC86WBZRZ000

Looks like a common fault with this particular model judging by the number of complaints on the web.

Kenmore Progressive Vacuum electrical issue. My

It could be the wires or switch in the hose and/or the connection between the hose and the vacuum. It could be the power cord or a loose or bad wire inside the canister. It could be the carbon brushes in the motor are worn out. To find a short or electrical problem you need to know how to trace the power flow from the plug and cord all the way to the motor. You can test the wiring in the hose with an electrical tester to see if there is a problem with it before you purchase a new one.

I have a Kenmore "Intuition"

I had a different vacuum that did this. I took all manner of things apart looking for blockages and the like .I found that by having the vacuum handle in the full upright position shuts off the suction to this area and doesn't power the brush BY DESIGN. I think this is to get more suction to the hose.

Was using kenmore whispertone stopped suddenly disconnected brush unit will not switch on ????

if you took the hose out of the wand assembly then it may not turn on as the hose handle has a power button on it and must be connected to turn on the unit.Also check the powerhead for a reset button (small red / or black button on the back of the head){back of head not the bottom}

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.

Bosch BSA2222UC canister vacuum shuts off after 5 minutes

You have a plugged vacuum indicator port. There will be a tiny hole somewhere near the hose inlet. Just clean it with a dry toothbrush. This will allow the vacuum pressure to equalize on either side of the shut off switch.

Kenmore canister switch issue

It most likely is the hose pcb. It has the switch on it, and part of it is either just dirty or bad.
