How do you rewire vacuum cleaner motor from the outside of the motor to power button and the retractable cord
I'm going to give this a shot hoping that you don't fry something.
It's just basic wiring.
The motor has 2wires coming out ?
If yes, it doesn't matter which of the incoming Black/White, or Euro Brown/Blue connects to which wire on the motor. The Green/Green with Yellow stripe Ground goes to metal aka ground. Hopefully you can find where the original ground connection is located and put ground there.
You will have to cut ONLY the Black (Brown if Euro) wire at/near the switch.
One end of the cut Black/Brown wire goes to one side of the switch, the other cut end goes to the other side of the switch.
Here's what happens -
With the switch off and the vacuum plugged in, nothing runs because the Black/Brown wire is not allowing a path for current because the switch is off.
When you turn the switch on, the circuit completes. Current flows thru the switch to the motor, out the motor on the White/Blue and back into the outlet..
If something shorts to metal the current will flow thru the metal and into the Green/Yellow stripe wire and into the outlet and trip the breaker.
If you ever take anything apart to repair, the first tool you get is your phone and take pictures of everything.
