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.

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

I have a broken chain switch that will not allow me to use all four light sockets. presently only using two sockets. Question: can I by pass the switch by combining all the black wires from the leading...


The blue should be for the lights and you can ty this into the black. The red should be the incoming for the motor to the fans. Some models are different and I strongly believe you have got to be talking about a ceiling fan and not a vacuum. Is this a test question? Because it is a darn good one if you do not mind me saying so however you might have not noticed to check or uncheck a box for the fans. Good luck.

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!
