Purchase the Relay for the model 550 and which goes where

As is usual when a friend brings you over something to look at for them, after they been through it, you can try to give them a look, that just says.....please, maybe next time, just bring it here first...
Sometimes you just want to slap 'em..not that it would change anything.. Hi, my name's Dean, and I own/operate my own appl business northern ca..... case in point above... ended up when backed off the metal plate on the relay and the coil wire has overheated and broke at the weld to the spade term.. the wires were not attached and looks like 4, 3, and 2..... are used on the Relay.... If someone would be so kind as to direct me further, It would be greatly appreciated... thanks in advance for the help

Rotation brush starts then stops

Hi, it's Jim from Crucial Vacuum!

Start by checking your unit's brushroll and clear it of any tangled hair strands or debris that my be blocking the airway. Manually spin the brush after unplugging the vacuum. There may be something noticeably jamming it on the bottom of the unit. What make and model is the vacuum?

Why does the full bag indicator not work

Usually means there is something blocking the suction (like something stuck in the hose). Try taking the hose off and turning the vac on. If the indicator doesn't go to full now but does when the hose is on, something is in the hose. Usually it's right in the curve of the handle. If your model has a suction relief on it, try opening it up and looking in there. You can also put the hose on the exhaust and try to blow out what is stuck but do this outside as it can get messy.

Roller stops when the handle is lowered

Hi, it's Cindy from Crucial Vacuum.

Over usage, the bristles on rollers wear. The reason why the roller stops properly working when the handle is lowered is because as the handle is lowered the vacuum is raised from the floor. It may be time to change your roller. A quick search of part # 303202004 will bring several options for purchase.

While your changing your roller, you can also change your two filters and carbon filter. For optimal performance, it is recommended to change your filter every 3-6 months.

My roomba 550 goes round and round going know where.all the rest work ok

I have the complete service manual for the 550 series. It is in PDF format and if you would like the complete manual, give me your email address and I will send it to you. Below is the basic cause and repair for your irobot's condition.
Circling at slow, normal or rapid speed:
Most common causes: Dirt has infiltrated the wheel encoder or a drive belt has failed.
In MOST cases, the robot's software will recognize and correct the behavior within minutes. If the battery was recently reset, the robot may act erratic again at startup until the software has a chance to correct the condition. • If the Robot does not resume normal driving behavior within the first couple minutes of runtime, go to DRIVE WHEEL Module inspection and cleaning (Appendix C). If cleaning wheel modules does not correct the problem, both wheel modules may need to be replaced. • Replace drive wheel modules if fixes fail.
Happy Holidays

Electrolux Central Vacuum won't turn off

There is a relay board on the unit (where the dirt goes) There are two small wires that connect and usually a switch near by. This switch has an Auto and Manual setting. If set to manual the unit will run all the time or until set back to Auto. If it is set to Auto and is still running, unplig the two small wires. They are sometimes on screw terminals behind a round plactic cover. It does not matter which terminal the wires go back on just one on each.

If the unit turns off the problem is in the wire running to each valve or a paper clip is shorting across the pins of a wall outlet. (something like this).

If the unit does not turn off once the wires are removed, the relay in the unit is stuck closed and will need to be replaced. Time to call a pro unless you have good electrical skills.

Hope this helps!

Low voltage wiring

Probably just didn't wire the l/v side of the relay properly. Or forgot to plug the leads from the outlets back in to the vac after you got it all hooked back up. Folks do it to me all the time and then make like it's my fault! Ha ha.

Jump the l/v contacts inside the CV. If it goes: trace outward toward the outlets to see if something shook loose while it was apart. If you can't jump the l/v with a plier/screwdriver at the CV or even inside it, you have an issue on the board (either how you've connected to it or it's defective itself). The prob is that there's dozens of diff board configs, plus the relays and transformers weren't together on the same board in the old days. If you've got one of these models with a massive transformer separate from the relays get out the test leads and make sure you've got adequate voltage coming out of her to power the relay coil.
