Thank you for your question on the power mate not working.

Since you have already done so checks you will need to use a volt/ohm meter to see if you have any voltage at the end of the handle where it plugs into the wand cord.

If you have power there you will then need to check for voltage at the bottom of the wand and if you have power there then you will need to remove the cover off the nozzle power mate and check for voltage going to the motor through the reset button.

If you do not have any voltage at the end of the wand handle then you will need to check for voltage at the receptacle by removing the hose and checking at the outlet of the canister.

You could have bad switch on the handle as well or a broken wire in the hose assembly.

You may have to take the handle apart to check for continuity through the hose wires.

Please let me know what you find out and we can continue to troubleshoot with that information.

I hotwired the power mate motor and do have power there. I was suspicious also of the reset button until I contacted a vacuum store who told me that usually the hose goes bad with the wiring in it. I do have power at the switch in the handle.....but only on the floor (the first) setting. I do not get power to the power mate when the switch is moved forward to the carpet (second) setting. Something I notice also is that when the switch is engaged, I get a definite click sound at the first setting but not the second.

Thank you for the update on the power mate not running. With hot wiring the power mate we know that it works, but depending on where you applied the power as to what to do next. If you supplied the power to the prongs on the end of the nozzle swivel were the wand plugs in and it worked then the problem has to be higher than that. If you applied power to the top of the wand and it worked then it could be in the handle assembly, so I would suggest splitting the handle assembly and checking the handle switch. If you do not hear a click in the carpet position then the switch may be bad. If you opened the nozzle assembly and applied power directly to the motor then I also would suspect the circuit breaker in the nozzle. Please tell me what you have found out if you have a meter to work with. Sam A.

Took the whole vacuum to the vauum store and they trouble-shot it free of charge.. They say that its in the wiring in the host, with the third prong in the handle not supplying any power.

The vaccum store also tested the reset switch and it checked out okay. There apparently is power from the top of the wand (which is new) down.
