Kenmore UPTIGHT 116-36623500

5 posts in this topic

Konichiwa!

My kenmore stopped working. We've had it for 5 yrs, replaced lots of parts- but recently, I turned her on and she ran for a few moments, then stopped dead, like the power cord fell out of the outlet.

I checked the cord, still plugged in, but could not turn the power on with the little button.

So...I tried another outlet- still not working.

I looked at the cord itself, and found that it was a bit chewed up and some copper is visable (Thanks to my Sweet Saint Bernard) but had been working just days before. (okay... go ahead...tell me its the cord! lol)

I am sure I need to replace the power cord...but, being a novice...could it be anything else? Anything that warrants a new vacuum all together, or can I ressusitate this patient?

Forever grateful to your most wise guidance...
