I have an Electolux Diplomat that is about 25 years old. A friend recently fixed the switch for me but now the cleaner is blowing instead of sucking. Hose is on correct end. How do I reverse it?


Withould opening your device it's not possible to tell you what's the problem.
Guess you should call your friend or atake it to a repair service to check your vacuum but it's quite probable you should start thinking in getting a new one.

On a rainbow d4c there is what looks like a capacitor. it is mounted close to the power nozzel recepical. it has two wire attached to it. I need a new one but haven't been able to locate. Can someone


Does the power nozzle have a motor in it. If it does the capacitor is probably an interference suppressor type. Is it a square / oblong cap with 2 leads? If it is then you need to look at it and find the capacitance value and the voltage. In the UK it is something like 0.1uF / 250 Volt (or higher). Some have 3 leads, 2 go to the motor power leads and the other is an earth connection. If it's a cylinder type then it will probably be either a mains filter cap or a motor start cap. Either way you should be able to get one from electronic component suppliers or even Ebay. As long as you can get the info off the original cap.

The vacuum wont start


It could be many different things. Start with making sure full voltage is coming through the power cord, the switch and all wiring connections to the motor. If all power is ok to the. Motor you will need to check the motor to insure it is working properly.

Dear Tasha ,
I suggest that you clean out the tubes and see if any paper has been rolled into the bottom. P.S. Do you know how tall 170 cm is in feet.

This is a good start, try this link...

Product Manual Search

Check your power cord and power supply, check the plug is clean and free from corrosion or dirt.
Plug another appliance into the same socket to check there is power at the socket.

Note: Electricity can cause serious injury even Death.
Isolate your power supply from the mains switchboard.
Switch off and Unplug your appliance from the wall socket before attempting any repairs.

If its still under warranty, take it back to the store or manufacturer for replacement.
Call a serviceman to test the appliance for you,

If not you could...
Check your fuse in the device, you will have to dismantle the appliance. Some of them have a fuse to protect the motor.

Get your Multimeter and do some tests...
Test the flexible cord connections
Electrical tests included, visual inspection, Earth continuity, Polarity and Insulation resistance.

Examining cord for Damage
Disconnect flexible cord from power supply.
Check cord along the whole length for obvious damage

1: Visual Inspection
A visual test is necessary before using test instruments to ensure that all specific safety requirements are meet.
Check the general condition and safety of the cord, plug, cord anchorage, terminations and of the appliance itself.

2: Earth Continuity.
The earthing system of an electrical installation must be installed in a manner that will allow circuit protection devices to operate if there is a fault between live parts (other than Neutral) and the mass of earth.
What to check: For class (one) 1 protectively earthed appliances only, test for very low resistance between exposed appliance metalwork and the earth pin of the plug. this resistance should be as low as possible and must not exceed 1 ohm. Note: the Exposed metal parts of a class 2 double-insulated appliance must not be earthed.
Equipment requirements:
A Multimeter (Digital or analogue) Set on a ohm scale or an insulation tester that also has a continuity scale.
A set of leads.

3: Polarity
Why is this test necessary:
An incorrect connection of phase and neutral conductors to fittings and appliances is extremely dangerous and has been the cause, either directly or indirectly of many shocks and fatalities.
What to check:
Polarity tests are carried out to ensure that every single-pole switch operates in the active conductor or the circuit in which it is connected.
Equipment requirements:
A Multimeter (Digital or analogue) Set on the resistance scale when the SUPPLY is NOT connected.
or a voltage indicator set on a suitable voltage rating when the supply is not connected.

4: Insulation Resistance
Why this test is necessary:
All live conductors (including Neutrals) and live parts must be insulated to prevent - Electric shock hazards from inadvertent contact.
- Fire hazards and equipment damage from short circuits.
What to check:
Insulation resistance tests must be made between:
- Active conductors of a poly-phase circuit
- Active and Neutral
- Active and Earth
- Neutral and Earth
The insulation resistance between appropriate components shall be not less than 1 mega-ohm minimum
Equipment requirements:
An insulation resistance tester which maintains an output of 500 volts when loaded with a 1 mega-ohm resistance.
A set of leads.

Different countries adhere to spicific Electrical (safety) Regulations and standards

This information is only intended to enlighten the novice, guide and remind someone already in the field of electrical installations.
DO NOT attempt any electrical repairs unless you have the appropriate background or training.

Hi i got a red green and black wire cable and I


Partial solution. Rob's clarification request is very valid, and you shouldn't mess with electrics if you are not completely sure what you're doing. That said, my guess is that you are in Europe (possibly the UK). Confusion can be caused by relatively recent changes in colour codes, so older and newer wires are coloured differently. Basically, red and brown signify "live", black and blue signify "neutral" and green signifies "earth" (or "ground"). So if you are just joining these cables, red goes to brown, and black goes to blue. But what about the green...?  Some machines are designed to be earthed, others are designed to be not-earthed, and it's not clear to me why you have an earth wire in one cable and not in the other. If the green is in the cable that brings power in to the machine, then it should be fixed to some metal part of the machine It can be FATALLY dangerous if you fail to earth a machine that should be be earthed. I repeat, if you are not absolutely sure what you are doing, don't risk it. Anyway, post more details and it looks like there's at least two of us out here who can help you.
