How to wire switch on oreck xl

Depends on if you have a two speed switch or single speed. Most commercial Orecks come with the single speed but some people get them upgraded to the two speed. If you have the single speed, the black wire coming from the power cord and the black wire coming from the handle cord will be attached to the switch. The two white wires will be tied together with a wire nut no matter which type of switch you have. It will not matter which connectors you attach the black wires to, on the single speed. If you have the two speed, you will have three connectors on the switch and you will only use two of them. If you look at them as a triangle, the point of the triangle where the single connector is located will point towards the floor when the vacuum is in the upright position. You will connect one black wire to this connector and the other on will be connected to the one that is closest to you when you have the handle opened up. If you use the bottom one you will only have high speed, so if you accidently get them reversed, all you need to do is change positions of the other upper wire. Hope this helps.

Why is my vacuum not working ?

I'm not sure what part the "Hover" is
I had one that the brush didn't spin. In the case there was a switch that activated when you lowered the upright part. I didn't want to replace that switch, so I removed it and bypassed it. You can still turn on the brush from the top switch. You can also take the switch to "Radio Shack" and get a duplicate switch.

My kirby g4 motor runs backwards and so the power drive when pushed forward wants to go backwards. I need the wiring diagram so I can get it wired correctly.

The wires to the switch, coming from the carbon brushes, have been reversed. The carbon brush closest to the switch goes on the lower switch terminal.

Check for power in the plug to the main switch. In most cases the long wires break or damage affter prolonged use. If the switch activate power then check power tilll motor. If so the motor is defective and might be though of for estimation of cost. Look out also for a load trip switch.
If motor brushes are bad clean and set but if winding is open you need to estimate.

My vacuum wont turn on.

It sounds like you may have a faulty on/off switch. I suggest if you are not familiar with electricity please have someone that you know "is" to do the following. "UNPLUG" your vacuum and disconnect thee white wire coming out of the on/off switch. With a volt meter dial the meter to OHM's and hold one lead to the disconnected wire coming out of the switch and with thee other lead from the meter touch the metal housing of the motor. Click the on/off switch and if the numbers zero out your switch is good if the numbers on the meter stay the same chances are your on/off switch is bad. If the switch is good then the cost for a new motor is more than a new vacuum. Good luck

No Wind Coming Out of Dirt Devil

The suction hole will never have wind coming out of it, it is for suction. To switch from floor to hose, turn the control knob labeled floor / hose.

Electrolux Model E switch wiring diagram

The black wire coming from the power cord connects to one side of the switch and the other black and the red wire go to the other side of the switch. If it turns on with the switch in the off position reverse the sides. Good luck. If you need anymore help just ask. Please rate me so I know if I helped. Thanks.

Water not coming out

Check the trigger switch. You will need a multimeter and a screwdriver to dismantle the handle.

No Power coming thru hose handle

It probably wouldn't help, it sounds like the switch. Have you tried pushing the reset button? (It's a little red button on the end of the power nozzle.)
