Kenmore canister vac won't turn off

Please bear with me as this is my first post on a forum.

My vacuum (model 116.2645087) no longer shuts off at the handle switch. I thought the internal switch might be bad and replaced it. No change. Any other parts I should try replacing?

I would ohm the wires in item #1 first. (Hose) next the wires in handle from switch to plug.

Does that have a second switch on the canister ?
Does the unit operate with the hose disconnected ?

It's a new hose. Cannister turns on as soon as its plugged in.

There is only a Hi-Low switch on the cannister. The power switch is on the hose handle. It turns on when it's plugged in whether the hose is attached or not.

I'm trying to find a wiring diagram. It would appear that there may be a stuck relay in the canister part.

That should use Panasonic's three wire hose. (three pin plug at canister)



In the following link.... the part you need to get to is #41. It's a motor control relay and is located near the motor.
