Question and Answers


Kenmore vacuum model 11629713991, motor starts when plugged in even when hose is removed from canister. Is the relay bad? part no. 4152600


Thank you for your question on the relay in the suction motor circuit of the vacuum cleaner.

Yes, that is correct and if you change this relay it should solve the issue of it running all the time unless you unplug it from the wall outlet.

If you slide the handle switch to the carpet setting does the power mate motor come on?

And then when you slide it back to the bare floor setting the power mate motor should shut off.

You will need to open the motor canopy to replace this relay.

First remove the tool and bag cover off the vacuum cleaner by lifting up and over backwards on the covers to pop them out of the canister body.

This will expose the two front screws by the foam seals and then you will need to remove the step rewind button to expose the two back screws so you can lift the motor canopy straight up and off to the side to gain access to the relay.

Please let me know how it turned out with the repair.
