I have a Kenmore Power Mate vacuum cleaner model number 116.58512790. I have a motor with part number 4370112. I need detailed instructions for the correct hookup of the black and the white wires to the motor. A diagram would also be helpful.

The service manual for this model of vacuum is not available online. The written instructions for motor replacement advise the technician to "pay close attention to the routing of the wires so that you may replace them in the same manner when installing the new motor."

The wiring diagram shows that the black wire from the motor connects to the overload protector along with the black wire from the light socket. The white motor wire connects to the white light socket wire and the disconnect plug. The light socket is in a parallel circuit with the motor.

This information should help you wire the motor. If you need additional help, resubmit your question with additional details.
