Question about Vacuums

Open Question

Ceiling fan lights only go on momentarily when wall switch is turned on. Clicking is heard in unit when the light turns out by itself. I took cover off--clicking comes from a small black box that is wired into the circuit.

That actually sounds correct, if it's the model I'm thinking of. As long as you're talking about connecting to the wires that are held in by the wire nuts you should be good to go.

1) The Black (HOT) wire always goes to the switch. From the other screw of the switch it goes to the first light.

Then a jumper wire (Black so you can keep track), goes from the first lights Black wire, or gold screw, to the Black wire, or gold screw of the second light.

The white Common wire in the Romex cable goes past the light switch, to the first light. A jumper wire (White in color so you can keep track), comes from the first light to the second light.

Only the Black (HOT) wires are switched.
Have additional questions regarding this, please post in a Comment.

SOURCE: I have a Casa Blanca

The light are going off only because after a period of time the circuit lets off the trigger on the switching thyristor. So the fault is within the control box of the unit which must be taken out to confirm.
Now attempt to do the job only if your are competent with high voltage circuits as the circuit must be checked before and after the lights switch off.
It is also possible that the switching device the thyristor may be on dry soldering joint. So with the mains power off( or the power disconnected to the unit) have yourself insulated , use a soldering iron to touch up all the joints.
Failure of capacitors in the trigger circuit is also possible to have this delay off.
Trace the trigger voltage cut off at this point to come to the solution.( use a multimeter)

the control module in the light it self needs to be replaced.
the remote is not the problem. Your ceiling light will need to be serviced by an electrician (licensed).

First, you didn't say you checked that the bulb worked. Is that burned out?

If bulb is ok, you will have to make sure the switch is matched with the fan (ususally a set of 4, 6 or 8 micro-switches have to be set the same in both switch and fan to be on same frequency of communication - even if you have an exact US 9051T controller).

A whole new fan is not too expensive ($100) and may be best route if you use the fan alot and it is over 7 years old - just an option.

Also, just because the light doen't work doesn't mean it is the switch transmitter that is broken, it could also be the receiver. Call the company on the website below - they will either tell you how to check or you can send everything to them and they will check for you.

Sorry for making it so difficult - I hope it is just your bulb.

My Sebo X4 does not switch on, when powered up two red lights flash momentarily. There was a buzzing from the black box underneath but that has now stopped. I changed the bag yesterday as it said it w


Your red lights flashing momentarily is normal start-up. The fact that your servo motor is operating tells you that you are getting power. If the vacuum motor does not turn on, you likely have a problem with the motor itself or the power supply board that feeds power to the motor. These items should be covered under warranty. However, if your vacuum is outside the manufacturers warranty, you can replace either of these parts fairly easily with only a phillips head screwdriver.I have included a link to the parts list for this machine. We do stock both parts. http://sebo.us/pdfs/website_schematicsPDFs/AUTOMATIC%20X%20Schematics.pdf

The light on a fan is flickering. It doesn't appear to be the light bulbs. This fan has a remote control and it controls the fan OK and turns the light on and off but it flickers. What could be...


Try changing or testing the batteries in the remote or take the remote out of the fans range. See if this stops the flickering. It can also be the individual bulb. Sometimes the monofillament wires become loosened. It won't hurt the fan to use a broken bulb but it will shorten the life of the bulb. They do get the daylights shook out of them! If all the bulbs flicker it can be the twist connects. These are located under the ceiling plate cover. To check, shut off the fan or turn off the braker switch to make sure you don't get a shock (but I really doubt it). Remove the face plate ceiling screws to expose the wiring. There should be a black and a red cap that holds wires together. Black is ground red is power. One at a time hold the wires of the black cap with one hand and give the cap a gentle clockwise twist with your other hand to see if they need tightening. Repeat with the other colored cap. Push the wires back up inside the housing if needed and replace the cover.
These are the simpelist things to try before calling an expert. I hope this helps?

If the product did not come with a manual control on it then yes you will have to use the remote. However, if the replacement remote will cost nearly as much as the ceiling fan itself you could simply purchase a new fan.

The switch on the wall only works to control the fan and not the light- it won't turn off the ligght. I replaced the switch but it did not solve the problem


If this is a new installation and there was only one switch on the wall, say to control a light that was once there, then you have that switch hooked up only to the fan. If you want to control the light as well, it has to be wired up at the box where the fan attaches to the ceiling. HOWEVER, with only one switch, the light and fan will always be ON or OFF at the same time. You would need to wire in another switch to control the fan and lights independently.

I have a ceiling fan with 3 lights. We do not use the remote control and did not install it. The lights stopped going on today. The fan works, but the lights do not. I have tried changing bulbs, but...


Sounds like a loose wire. If you turn the lights on via a wall switch or a pull chain, I would start where you hooked the wire for the lights to the house electricity, most likely where the fan meets the ceiling. Pull the "bell" part of the fan down that covers the ceiling box and see if there is a loose wire inside. There should be a plastic cap called a wire nut that covers the wire connection. Make sure it is secure and if possible, put some electrical tape around it. Please let me know if you have questions.

If this is a new product and it is defective, take it back to Lowe's and insist on a replacement, talk to the manager if you have to. This site will only advise you on how to fix it.

I had the same problem. Took it in and the repair shop they said it was the switch. It was an $18 switch and $30 labor. Switch was a red on/off button with 2 wire leads and caps to screw on for connection. If you can wire a ceiling fan then this looks about the same difficulty.
