Question and Answers

Q:

i need to assemble the pieces for the sliding wand 11625614503 Kenmore Canister vac

A:

I can understand how important it is to have the right information for your vacuum. The image below should help you open up the handle and install the sliding knob in the handle of your vacuum cleaner. Your model may not look exactly like the one shown but the access procedure should be about the same. Be sure that the vacuum cleaner is unplugged before accessing the switch in the handle. I hope this helps. Please feel free to let me know if you need further assistance. We are always here to help. Thank you for using ManageMyLife.com.

Thanks for the response and the link, Henry. After reading it, it still does not solve my problem. The intermittent issue with the powermate described on that post is what I was having originally. In my case, the problem were the burnt out wire harness and cover, which I replaced. It is also not a switch problem, because when I connect the hose from the canister to the upholstery cleaner, the brush on that works, so power is flowing down the replaced pieces and the switch is doing its job. I am just wondering if I blew the motor on the powermate or if there is some fuse in between the hose and the powermate motor. I sure hope there is, so I don't have to replace the motor.

Thank you for your question. I am sorry you are having a problem with the Kenmore vacuum model 11625614503. If the unit was somewhat working before you replaced the harness and now is not I recommend checking the wire connections. If one of the wires is loose or it is miswired it may not make any noise. I posted a wiring diagram below that shows how the unit should be wired. First, unplug the unit from the wall. Then remove the cover and check the connections and wiring. If it is ok I recommend looking at the hose connectors. I have seen those connections go bad more often than the harness.  I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.   Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark T.

Replacing the motor on a vacuum means disassembly is required. I have attached an image of the parts breakdown for this model. I am also e-mailing the image due to an issue with some images. The Manual also has disassembly pictures to help. I was not able to locate more precise instructions for this model, but once you remove the canister top, the dust bag and the motor filter, you will see the screws to remove. The motor is usually in a clip holder and has a plug in wiring harness. Please reply if further help is needed. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
