How do I connect the substituted relay part KS4152600 on my Kenmore canister vacuum cleaner model 116.26512690?

The original relay (4152600) had 5 spade lugs for 5 wires. Replacements (KS4152600) have only 4 lugs. No one can tell me why I keep getting the wrong part sent to me from Parts Direct (it does not show as a substitute or replacement part) or, if I'm supposed to use it, what to do with the fifth wire on the vacuum. Please help me -- I've been dealing with this since September.

The relay part number KS4152600 is the correct part for your model of Kenmore vacuum according to the manufacturer. The replacement relay is supposed to have only 4 lugs by design. I do not have technical information such as a wiring diagram available to advise you on the proper connection of wires since you indicated that the original relay had 5 wires attached. I recommend taking the vacuum cleaner to a service technician to connect the wires to the motor relay.
