Question about Vacuums
Fritz , thanks please confirm... there are likely more than 2 leads from the motor??
I have not seen or worked on the Tristar CXL as it is very new.You will have a high low function but:
Should the power head function at both speeds or only hi speed
How many connectors pulled apart ?
Are the leads fastened onto the motor or are there push on male terminals on a terminal bar beside the motor with leads running off a shroud.
How many leads are on the switch itself....
Either way the wiring pattern will be the same,for all components it will just be a matter of which half of the motor harness connects in which terminal, if you wire it in reverse your speed switch should just function backward. The question is, is there a simple rocker switch for hi low or is there a circuit board type with a speed control on a mini board. If your power head functions at both speeds it will connect from the cord or rewind, prior to the speed switch. If it should only run on hi speed it will be tied into the hi speed half of the two speed switch.
So leaving your green ground out your pattern would be: black to 1 side of rewind to main switch to motor and head together and then remaining back to opposite side of rewind to cord.
Please confirm a bit more info as posted...
