I need a good wiring diagram for my Oreck xl vac

I do not have a diagram for you but I can tell you how they normally are hooked up. When you have the motor sitting in it's normal position the black wire from the power cord will attach to the terminal closest to where the cord comes in. There should also be a black dot next to the terminal. The two white wires will connect together and they will go on a terminal on the other side of the motor that also has a black dot next to it. The remaining black wire should connect to a terminal next to the white wires or at least on the same side of the motor as the white wires. Hope this helps you.

What is the 4 wire square chuck on the motherboard ?

If you are referring to what I think you are referring to, it's called a P4 connector, and is from the Molex family. I have attached a picture of the connector. The black wires are ground (0V) and the yellow wires are +12V.
There's often one from the PSU which you plug into the socket on your m/b. It's for (mostly) supplying power to the CPU. fc47f9e7-c9b2-4a76-b78b-78023abe79ff.jpg

I also attach a couple of pictures of the corresponding socket on the m/b. On one the socket is at the edge of the m/b; on my m/b this socket is near the middle. If you had given details of the model of your computer there is a chance that pictures of its m/b showing this socket would be on the HP website.

Hello my name is Chuck and I have a craftsman 2 riding mower. The problem is I need to find out where a wire goes. the wire runs from under the fly wheel cover to just past the selinoid switch. The single...

If the wire comes from under the flywheel it is most likely the stator lead that goes to the rectifier/regulator for charging the battery...if the cust. said this was getting hot then there may be a short circuit in the charging system or the rectifier/regulator may be defective...if this model does not have a rectifier/regulator on it , then the lead most likely goes to the headlamps to power them up(only while running)

it is easy...

remember this your motherboard is like a children play house red for red, square for square.. if it is not compatible for the socket it will never be placed well..

you need to connect the following..

first your main power supply to your motherboard

it is very easy to see.. it is a group of maybe 16 wires in a plastic will connect it to your motherboard..

your processor power is a four wired in plastic connector but it is square in shape..

note: take a good look in each connector they have squares cirlce, etc shapes in each wires so don't force it to connect if it is hard to it means it is not for that socket..

this is the turning point..

your power button, reset button, pw LED, HDD LED,

maybe you know where it is placed,
but note the sequence.. pw button, reset, pw led,hdd led,

if not you can try to short the pins of *********** board so that you will know where the power button will be placed...

your usb and internal speaker has their own pins....

note: take a good look to your motherboard before you connect it, it may cause you some trouble..

take a look at the + ,- signs that is encrypted in the motherboard...

you have to the red wire is fore the posite and the black is negative..

i know it is compose of four wires but they are in one socket right...

your hdd connect it i know you know that how..

that's all..
