The motor on my carpet tool (beater brush) stopped running yesterday. The main vacuum still works, but the switch for the carpet tool just clicks and doesn't turn it on.


Knowing the model would help.
Possible problems:
Broken or disconnected wire in hose, connections, power nozzle.
Hose needs replaced. Check all connections for discoloration and cracked supports. Have power nozzle checked at a vacuum shop. Depending on the model, take it to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store for this.
Bad power nozzle motor Needs replaced.
Bad switch. Take the whole machine in for thorough check and repair..

I nead a wirring diagram to fit a four connection power switch to a Kirby G4 cleaner


Hi,

There isn't a wiring diagram for these. There is only a switch, a motor and a light, so a schematic isn't really required.

I'm assuming you've made the fatal mistake of removing the wiring from the old switch and have forgotten where to re-connect them. It's also not very helpful that all the wires are white, so I can't really tell you to connect red to "x", black to "y", etc.

The really important connections are the power cord and the motor brush connections. You can't get the power cord wrong as the plug is shaped to only allow connection at one orientation: I've drawn you a diagram to show 3 of the 4 connections:

As long as the motor brushes are correct, there wont be any problem. If these are the wrong way around, the motor will run in reverse and will blow instead of s/uck.

The headlight can be wired either way around so if these connections are switched, it shouldn't matter. You have a 50/50 chance of getting it back the same way as it was originally and if there is any problem with the light, you can easily switch these wires over.

Hope this helps. Please post back if you need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

Wiring schmatic for kenmore canistar vacuum


Generally, there are two wires inside the unit which connect to the wiring going down the suction hose.  Since the unit is a/c...it doesn't matter which of them goes to which terminal.  The wires are switched in some cases.  Look for the open terminal.

Wiring schematic oreck xl2600hh


I have a Oreck XL and the propeller that is in the housing will become hard for the moter to turn. I have took it apart and do not see a problem, but when I reinstall the parts it will run for about 15 sec. and the moter will stop turning. When the propeller housing is off the motor turns ok and doesn't stop. Do I need a new propeller/housing?

Miele Solarus Canister Vacuum stopped working


I am an amateur and novice.
Tracked My Miele problem to a bad connection at the outlet plug.

i think the constant slapping of the plug against the housing during rewind prob disconnected the wires inside the plug? Replaced plug

Carpet Beater for Central Vac


Some of these types of hoses, if there is a male plug on the end that goes into the wall outlet, could be that one side of it is fused and will have to be replaced. When something happens like a short or a bad brush roll stall, this fuse will open up. If you supplied the model number I may habe been able to look it up and see. But if the hose end cuff comes off, then you can check it with an ohm meter to see if one side is open or not.

There should be another wire to which it attaches nearby. If you cannot find it, do not try to 'invent' a repair...get help.
