Question about Vacuums

Open Question

I have an Encon ceiling fan (model i56-?) very similar to the Westinghouse 7812700 and the motor wires have been disconnected. There is a red, an orange, a brown, and a gray from the motor; a white and a red from the capacitor; and, of course, the white and blk going up the downrod for the main supply connections. How do these wires connect?

SOURCE: Connecting motor part

Hi Charlotte,  Yes, colour coding of wires is a nightmare, isn't it!? Red and brown both signify "live", and blue and black both signify "neutral".  So you should connect brown to red, and black to blue. I hope this is helpful. If you need more guidance, please post here again and I'll see what more I can do for you. I value your feedback, so please remember to rate my response. Good luck!

SOURCE: Hi i got a red green and black wire cable and I

Partial solution. Rob's clarification request is very valid, and you shouldn't mess with electrics if you are not completely sure what you're doing. That said, my guess is that you are in Europe (possibly the UK). Confusion can be caused by relatively recent changes in colour codes, so older and newer wires are coloured differently. Basically, red and brown signify "live", black and blue signify "neutral" and green signifies "earth" (or "ground"). So if you are just joining these cables, red goes to brown, and black goes to blue. But what about the green...?  Some machines are designed to be earthed, others are designed to be not-earthed, and it's not clear to me why you have an earth wire in one cable and not in the other. If the green is in the cable that brings power in to the machine, then it should be fixed to some metal part of the machine It can be FATALLY dangerous if you fail to earth a machine that should be be earthed. I repeat, if you are not absolutely sure what you are doing, don't risk it. Anyway, post more details and it looks like there's at least two of us out here who can help you.

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?

I have a hunter with 3 wires black white green how do I wire it to a three wire cable black red white ground the fan also has a light and remote but remote is Brocken want to use it with no remote model...


Black to Black - White to White, Green to Green (copper). Put a wire nut on the red wire.

The Black is suppose to run the light (or the fan) while the Red is suppse to run the fan (or light). The White is common and the ground is ... well the ground.

If you have a light kit on the fan, you can control the light and the fan separately ... or you can run them together.

Let me know how this comes out ...

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

I have a model 484 709 UPC 792145330547 The fan/light is close to ceiling (instalation). Their is supposed to be an "o" ring to remove the fan/light from the celling. I cannot find it!!! ...


Remove the cowl at the ceiling by removing the screws in the cowl (very close to the ceiling). Use caution in removing them as the weight of the fan may be carried by these screws. Depending on the style, though, the weight may be borne by supports beneath the cowl. Either way, this will get you access to the wiring, allowing you to change out/remove the fan. If the fan and cowl are together, and close to the ceiling, there is usually a method of hanging the assembly while the wiring connections are made during installation. Look for a hook that the screw hole will go over, supporting the fan.

Best regards,

I have a broken chain switch that will not allow me to use all four light sockets. presently only using two sockets. Question: can I by pass the switch by combining all the black wires from the leading...


The blue should be for the lights and you can ty this into the black. The red should be the incoming for the motor to the fans. Some models are different and I strongly believe you have got to be talking about a ceiling fan and not a vacuum. Is this a test question? Because it is a darn good one if you do not mind me saying so however you might have not noticed to check or uncheck a box for the fans. Good luck.

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.

Who makes Heritage Ceiling fans?


unfortunatly there are many manufactures that have a "heritage" model fan ... like casablanca, minka aire, concord and emerson ... even Kmart sells a fan called Heritage (not a bad fan) ... of the above, casablanca has a high end model called "heritage" and that name is likely the domanant brand .. if you can find a model number then it can be isolated better ... .

here is info on that one

Loud noise


When the motor bearings start to go bad, they will make a loud noise. Some motors if a piece broke off of the fan, then it also will make a loud noise. You may have to replace the motor.
