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.

How do you rewire vacuum cleaner motor from the outside of the motor to power button and the retractable cord


I'm going to give this a shot hoping that you don't fry something.
Be careful.
It's just basic wiring.
The motor has 2wires coming out ?
If yes, it doesn't matter which of the incoming Black/White, or Euro Brown/Blue connects to which wire on the motor. The Green/Green with Yellow stripe Ground goes to metal aka ground. Hopefully you can find where the original ground connection is located and put ground there.
You will have to cut ONLY the Black (Brown if Euro) wire at/near the switch.
One end of the cut Black/Brown wire goes to one side of the switch, the other cut end goes to the other side of the switch.
Here's what happens -
With the switch off and the vacuum plugged in, nothing runs because the Black/Brown wire is not allowing a path for current because the switch is off.
When you turn the switch on, the circuit completes. Current flows thru the switch to the motor, out the motor on the White/Blue and back into the outlet..
If something shorts to metal the current will flow thru the metal and into the Green/Yellow stripe wire and into the outlet and trip the breaker.
If you ever take anything apart to repair, the first tool you get is your phone and take pictures of everything.

Polaris 9300 sport pool cleaner. the wires pulled free from the plug into the power supply. not sure which wire goes where. There are 3 red black and brown. 4 holes for them to go back into.


Without a wiring diagram it will need either model knowledge or some educated guesswork aided by a multimeter and carefully studying the internal wiring of the power supply.
Without a great deal of additional description I can't help further other than to suggest you contact the retailer who sold the appliance.

Good luck!

I have a hunter with 3 wires black white green how do I wire it to a three wire cable black red white ground the fan also has a light and remote but remote is Brocken want to use it with no remote model...


Black to Black - White to White, Green to Green (copper). Put a wire nut on the red wire.

The Black is suppose to run the light (or the fan) while the Red is suppse to run the fan (or light). The White is common and the ground is ... well the ground.

If you have a light kit on the fan, you can control the light and the fan separately ... or you can run them together.

Let me know how this comes out ...

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

Hi ! I have a Kenmore central vacuum (model # 34326), 3 inlet valves on different floors. the inlet valves on the second and third floors are already connected. I need to connect the inlet valve...


By your description it seems that You have telephone wire used. You only need two low voltage wires to complete the circuit to turn on the power to the central vacuum unit. The low voltage wires must be arranged so that when you insert the hose into any valve it closes the circuit. You will wire it as if the black and red are just one wire and the green and yellow are the other, they are actually doing exactly the same as if you only had two wires.

Pump motor on Bissell 1400 Little Green Machine


When I reassembled mine, there was 3 wires connecting to the motor, Green, black and red. The Green one was connected to the lead on the side of the motor, the black one on the lead directly above the green one, on the same side. The red one was on the lead that was the only lead on that side of the motor. Hope that helps.

Wiring diagram s3755 hoover


Today I shortened my hose by 4" to get around a tear problem. You can use an Ohm meter to find the right 4 wires. When looking from the top of the canister with the hose heading to your left, the wires should be:
White (furthest connector away from you)
Black - to the switch
Red
Blue
With the Red and Blue going to the speed con trol curcuit board.

Connecting motor part


Hi Charlotte,  Yes, colour coding of wires is a nightmare, isn't it!? Red and brown both signify "live", and blue and black both signify "neutral".  So you should connect brown to red, and black to blue. I hope this is helpful. If you need more guidance, please post here again and I'll see what more I can do for you. I value your feedback, so please remember to rate my response. Good luck!
