Question about Vacuums

1 Answer

Need proper wiring connections inside unit, where they have pulled apart from squeeze connectors.(Wiring diagram needed) Can someone E-Mail this to me? Fritz (an ''old'' mechanic) Folks I have talked to, say there is no specific model number for these units. They are just described by name, and serial #. and I have relayed exactly what was labled on the unit. Please post this and quit asking me to enter a "valid" product.

    This is a canister type, and the only model ID
    indicated on it is Tri Star CXL. It is 2 speed
    with a power outlet for the floor brush.

    Also, the replacement power cord I have for this, is a 3 wire w/grounding, whereas, the original cord was
    only 2 wire w/o grounding provision. Fritz

    Since there is no brand or model listed this is a real stab in the dark. Post model the info written into your problem are as well. A simple canister or upright will have a power cord running into the body and splitting two ways. One lead will go directly to the switch or cord winder and then switch if equipped with rewind.. The opposite side of the switch will then connect to one lead of each: the motor, the power head socket if any etc. The remaining lead on a power head socket, and motor would then connect back to the other half of the cord. or rewind.. If you are dealing with a built in vac , a vac with a rewind or multi speed vac , or one with any sensors built any , there may be additional steps. The power would always enter a rewind or circuit board first before entering the motor. Circuit boards are generally labelled with terminals relating to motor lead position. However multi speed motor will have various leads. When connecting a motor to a wiring harness there will normally be a long lead or push terminal attached to the copper "field windings" on either side of the motor, These are generally your power in and out leads for the motor. Hope this helps... Please post back with more details

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...

My vac will turn on at the unit but will not come on when I insert the hose into any wall outlet


The problem is one of two things...either the hose part is bad or the wiring to the unit is bad....all that needs to happen to make the unit come on is to short between (connect) the two wires going to the unit. Therefore if the hose part is not connecting the two wires, or if the wires are broken somewhere going to the unit it will not turn on with the hose. I would take apart one of the wall outlets and jumper the wires to make sure that the wiring to the unit is good. If that does not work, then start checking for a break in the wiring to the unit. My feeling is that the hose part is probably bad and it is not making the connection in there properly and therefore not turning on the unit.

It stopped working while I was using it . I tried to plugged in different electric outlets but it still dead. What should I do or look into in order to get it back to normal?? thanks


I would start by taking the wand apart. Be sure vac is unplugged from the wall outlet! You should be left with two pipe pieces, and the beater bar. I would also pull the hose from the canister unit itself. Once all the pieces are pulled apart, check the two or three prong wire connectors on each piece, both the female and male ends. If you have any dielectric grease, use a dab on each electrical connection. Once you reassemble, and still not powering up, wiggle the wand back and forth at the connection near the canister, and after the hose near where the switch is. If the vac cuts on after wiggling it, then you have a loose connection, and will need to tighten the female ends on the electrical connections, by squeezing them together slightly with a pair of pliers. Please rate if this works or does not work. Thanks!

Will not turn off when hose is pulled out of wall


Some units have an on/off switch on the power unit itself. Check to make sure that is not turned on. Unplug your power unit and remove the 2 low voltage wires (not the power cord itself) . The low voltage wires start at the unit and run throught your home and attach to each hose inlet. They are usually attached to the unit by simple wire terminals or wire capped to small wires coming out. Just unlug the terminals or unscrew the wire caps and pull the connections apart. Plug your machine back in. If it still comes on the problem is the relay or circuit board/switch/ relay assembly inside the unit. If it doesn't come on with the low voltage wires unattached then you may have two wires touching somewhere in the low voltage wiring.

This should help you tear down the unit to a point where you can determine the cause of your problem. The wiring diagram is provided in the second image. You may need this diagram to check the wiring if the motor for the brushes is not running. You can view a parts diagram and order parts for the steam vac on the Sears PartsDirect website.

Vacuum won't switch on;got it apart;cord ok;need wiring diagram


Its a great idea to write on paper how its connected . So it helps with dis assembly & reassembly . I tried a Internet search . Looks like it'd cost money for a service manual. Though. I found a Kirby Spares Website that could help. Although it doesnt have Document downloads with repair help. There are spares & there is a telephone number for an engineer available during office hours. That you could ask for repair help. With wiring connections for your Kirby G3.

http://kirby-owners-club-shop.com/faqs.htm

The Engineers Telephone Number is 0845 388 9301

I repaired my Parents Kirby Heritage some while ago. With a new set of Brushes. Bulb Repair.

They are a Great Machine. Bit Expensive. Though Tough & Well Made !

First - press the circuit breaker button.
If no luck:
1. Make sure you have connected it properly (see diagram here)
2. If you connected it right - try bypassing circuit breaker.
3. Still does not work - make sure the connectors are reconnected properly.

This should take care of the problem.
