Have a oreck u4180 upright, while cleaning out blockage a white wire came loose and now won't start .where does it attach?

The white wire more than likely came from the motor. Look to see if there is another white wire that might still be connected to the motor and if there is, there should be another terminal to connect your loose wire. That should take care of it. Hope this helps.

Hunter "French quarter " ceiling fan stops without being required to. Lights operate on or off without being required to.

loose wire connection White wire is neutral black wire fan blue wire lights. Since the light and fan are both affected that indicates the white wire is loose at the power panel or at the top area of the fan assembly.

So, with that being said, if we assume the white wire in the box is actually acting as a second black wire, when I went to hook up the first dimmer switch, I connected the black wire in the box to one of...

The most likely candidate is the white wire. In a standard residential installation, the white wire is often the neutral connection - and wiring the dimmer hot to neutral will cause exactly what you described.

However, often times the white wire is instead a traveller wire being run to the switch from the fixture (which, it sounds like that's what you were assuming) - in which case, the other likely candidate would be having a loose power connection coming in contact with ground. Sometimes this can be a loose screw or, as you describe, a loose wire.

Your best choice would be to install a standard 50-cent light switch first. If you connect it together and it works - then you know a connection came loose and made a bad contact - so then you can try using another dimmer. If you connect it and the breaker trips - then you know you're using the wrong wires/connections.

Neutral (white) wire connection

Use caution when dealing with AC, it can be deadly.

The black wire by accepted standards is the 'hot' wire and will measure (when active) 110-125 volts (in the US) to ground or the white neutral wire in a normal household system.
The white wire may have a couple of volts when measured to an earth ground or any green (or green-yellow) wire which is (by standards) connected to earth ground, often via plumbing pipes in some homes, or a visible or buried grounding rod driven several feet into the earth.

The black (hot) wire is the one customarily 'switched.'

I would highly recommend you have a qualified electrician reconnect the strayed wires to protect yourself and the fan.
