Question about Heating & Cooling

Open Question

I have a swirlwind high performance blower that I would like to use a circulation fan in a shop. How do I connect the 3 wires to a cord for plugging in? The wires were cut when removed and I would like to attach a cord and be able to plug it in.

SOURCE: ac compressor wont turn on blower wont blow

Do an A/C performance test ( make sure there is Refrigerant in the system otherwise that fan will never go on. If there is refrigerant in the system now you have to figure out which sensor including the switch,and a/c relay is giving you the headache.
.
Put key in ignition and turn it to on position. Now get you meter and check for B+ on both sides of each sensor in this circuit. The sensor that doesn't have B+ on both sides of its terminals is your culprit. Why? Because the sensor is basically and on /off switch with a set of limitation built into it.
Relay checks are basic continuity and resistance checks. B+ here usually means switch is a-oK. use shop manual to check the terminal for the switch at the relay.
Lastly unplug electical connector to Compressor and run a set of jumper wires from the battery to the compressor see if it magnatizes the clutch. If it doesn't you need a new compressor.

SOURCE: i need to replace power supply. where the cord

Greetings from GoVacuum.com,

Unfortunately there is no fuse on a Kirby Generation model. In my 10 years of repairing Kirby's as well as other vacuums I will tell you that 9 times out of 10, when a Kirby Generation doesn't turn on, it's the cord that needs to be replaced. This is by far the most common problem that we see on Kirby repairs.
The Kirby motor is very well built, and usually has a life of 30+ years (G3 is about 12-15 years now). The only other problem it could be on the Kirby would be carbon brushes, or the switch assembly.

I would first try testing the power cord, I think this will solve the problem for you. To test a cord on a Kirby Generation (all Generation models are the same machines, just different colors) first follow where the cord goes into the Kirby at the bottom. To access this cover easier, first remove the "boot" at the bottom of the outer bag. This is the plastic part at the bottom of the outer bag that connects onto the Kirby. You will see that there is a plastic cover over the cord. You will need to remove the screw that holds this cover on.

Now after you have removed the cover, pull the plug out of the machine. Once you have the cord disconnected from the machine, you can now test it to see if there is a short somewhere in the cord. You will need to purchase an inexpensive continuity tester from Home Depot, Radio Shack or most other electronic stores. This will tell you if there is power running through the cord, or if the cord is bad. With the continuity tester, plug the cord into the wall outlet, then put the positive, and negative testing rods into the female end of the cord that plugs into the machine. You will then be able to tell if the cord has continuity going through it. The tester will indicate if there's continuity or not.

The picture here shows that the cord is good. If your tester does not light up, or indicate that there is continuity, you'll simply just need to purchase a new cord. As I stated earlier, this is the most common reason that a Kirby won't turn on.

If however your cord tests OK, this indicates that the machine either needs a new motor (or carbon brushes in the motor) or it needs a new switch.

the cord that gets plugged in for the winter just works the block heater and warms the engine coolant to make winter starting easier. if you can not control blower motor fan speed then you probably have a bad blower resister or blower motor, that will need to be replaced. if the fan has been wired to the block heater wiring(plug)then it has to be disconnected and put back to original. the block heater works on household voltage120 volts) and the blower motor works on 12 volts. the blower motor may be burnt out due to the excess voltage supplied to it. check fuses as it may have burnt a fuse. depending on the damage caused you may have to take it to a repair shop to have things fixed properly.

Fan motor problem


usually its the heater resistor that causes that. find it and check it out, this controls all fan speeds. its under the passengers side glove box, take off wiring then remove 2 screws and then it will drop out.

Heater blower fan only works on "high".


under the dash on the passenger side is the blower motor. to left of it is a plug that has 3 or 4 wires. theres a part that those wires connect to. this a blower resistor. the two screws holding the part must be removed.pull the part out. Auto parts store should have the resistor.

have you replaced the blower motor resistor yet,it is a printed circuit that has a floating ground.it is where the blower motor wires plug in to.if you unhook the motor wires and use your ground and hot wire on the motor it should test normal,

check the resistor plug, the resistor plugs were faulty in all chevs, i hav a 3/4 ton truck that needs a wiggle every now and then. if that doesnt work then replace the resistor itself.

there is a resistor for the fan motor which works the lower speeds, you need to replace that, it is normally located near the blower motor, got 3-6 wires plugged in it

3 speed switch wiring schmatic


On a 3 speed switch you usually have 4 terminals, and they are marked L1, 1, 2 and 3.
L1 which is line voltage from the electrical cord or wall plug, #1 low speed usually a red wire from motor, #2 medium speed usually a blue wire from the motor and #3 high speed usually a black wire from the motor. That is if the fan is low,medium and high, if it says high, medium and low then reverse #1, #2 and #3

Heater blower only blows on low


This could be a few different things:

1.Check the power and ground connections on your blower motor, corrosion can cause high resistance and a slow blower speed.

2. Check your available voltage at the blower motor on the different settings. it should vary with high supplying 12volts, make sure to do this check with the blower motor still plugged in.

3. Connect the blower to a 12v power source and see if it runs at high speed.

If all else fails i would check your resistor pack, i would not suspect this because when it fails you usually just loose all speeds except for high, but it could happen.

Condensation from small blower shorts out circuit board.


Put a plastic bag over the control board that will allow it to breath. you can add sealant to joint but you should clean the old off first. Then use some cork tape after sealant dries. You may also use pvc glue but it will never come out after that, but can be cut w/ saw if that becomes nessary.
