You will need to remove all the wires off it and off the hi/lo rocker switch. Then disconnect to two wires on the opposite side of the on/off to the power in side. The two white motor wires then get connected to this switch. The machine will now run on high speed only when turned on.
I cannot find a wiring diagram from where I am located right now, but I do know that the black wire coming from the power cord goes to the top side of the motor when you have it laying upside down with the cover off, and it will go to the tab towards the back of the vacuum. Sometimes they put a black dot beside the tab and if that is there you put your wires from the power cord on those. You will also have two wires coming from your light bar in front and the white wire will usually have a piggy-back terminal that your white wire from the power cord attaches to as well. If there are no black dots beside the terminal tabs the white wires will connect to the bottom terminal on the opposite side from the black power cord wire. It will usually be on the lower side of the motor as well. The black wire from the light bar will go on the remaining terminal tab as there is usually only three tabs on the motor. I will check back later this week to see if this has helped you and if not I should be able to get a diagram this weekend.
Attach the white wire on your lamp to the white wire on the grinder.
Attache the black wire on your lamp to the black wire on the motor side of the switch.
This will give the lamp power any time the grinder is turned on.
You can put a switch inline of the black wire to the lampp and it will allow you to turn it off when not needed
You can attach the white wires together and the black ones before the switch.
If you choose this way you will need a switch as the lamp will be power all the time.
I am commenting on things are here in the u/k not u/s which is not the same but i hope this is of some help.......From the wall black and white ,this is a switch wire which is on or off, i would link this to white to white , black to black or black to red with the rest left unconnected,,,,,Check to see if you have fitting instructions indicating what wire goes where....Good luck
Both black go to the switch. Power in - black to switch / white to white from motor. From motor - black to switch / white to white from power cord The black wire from the power hooks to the off end of the switch and the black wire from the motor hooks to the on end. Third post is not used. The two white wires are connected to each other with a small twist on wire nut.
Use a thin screwdriver or some other something like a butter knife and slide it into the gap on the side of the power switch. THis is just a plastic rocker that actuates the actual switch. Pry up on one side a little then the other to work it out. Don't worry if you break it, you can get a new one when you purchase the switch for around $5. Once you have that off, the switch can be pried up in a similar manner. It just unplugs from the socket.
You can purchase switch and cover rocker at goodvac dot com at a significant discount over other sites. Fast delivery too.
You need to measure for voltage inside the machine between the white wire and black wire from the power cord. If zero, the cord is likely broken at or near the plug end. This is a common problem if one pulls the plug by yanking on the cord instead of pulling on the plug directly. In any case, try cutting the cord off a little way back from the plug, and fit a new replacement plug from a home center or hardware store. If the voltage test above showed line voltage (115 volts AC in the US), then turn the switch to on, and measure for voltage between the white wire and the motor side of the switch. If good, then likely there is a motor brush problem or a broken winding in the motor. Repair of this usually requires dis-assembly of the housing around the motor. Hope this helps!
I have the same vacuum at home and can take a picture, but I believe it is wired in this order. Hot wire (black) from cord goes to the switch then the switch to the fuse, then the fuse to the cable that goes down to the light and motor. The neutral (white) wire from the cord is connected to the neutral (black with white stripe) side of the wire going to the motor and light.
