so you have 3 wires that make the stereo turn on red is trigger from when you turn the key whatever wire turns active on the cars wire harness that needs to be conneced to the red wire on the head unit. yellow wire need to be connected to the cars wire harness that has constant power on even when the cars key is in the off position. Last connection should always be the ground connection should be made when connecting a stereo unit. You can use the ground off the cars wire harness or you can make your own ground using a sheet metal screw and tapping into the cars sub framing behind the unit with a loop connector at the screw end and a barrel connector to the stereo end. Them 3 wires red ,yellow,and black are the only 3 wires that need to be connect to turn the unit on and off. If your stereo doesn't hold its memory on the settings everytime you turn the car off you have the red and yellow wire crossed and you would need to swap them. goodluck

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.

My black and decker food processor won't start

Without your model number, I can only provide generic answers.Here are some common causes of a completely non-working food processor:
  • Broken power cord (plug). If you are in the habit of yanking on the cord instead of pulling on the plug to unplug the device, eventually the wires in the cord will break right at the plug. Hardware stores love this bad habit; they get to sell lots of replacement plugs. Sometimes if you push or bend the wire right at the plug you can get it to work momentarily.
  • Broken power cord (at device) Sometimes the cord gets twisted or turned too tightly where it goes into the appliance and breaks right at the strain relief. Sometimes if you push or bend the wire right at the strain relief, you can get it to work momentarily. To repair this, remove the bottom plate from the food processor, unplug the terminals at the ends of the power cord wires (note terminal has the ribbed wire and which one has the smooth wire). Remove the strain relief (this is not easy - usually you have to squeeze it with a large pliers and push it to the outside of the appliance. Cut the wire at the break, then strip the ends. Run the cord back inside the appliance and crimp new terminals on the ends. (Alternate: leave internal wiring intact, and use UL approved splicing connectors to attach the power cord to the wires inside the appliance. Make sure the wiring does not interfere with motor ventilation, mechanical parts or reassembly of the bottom plate.) Make sure the neutral (ribbed) wire goes to the original neutral connection. If the shortened cord is not long enough for you, you can buy a replacement lamp cord. Be sure it is 18 AWG wire; 20 AWG is too small for the current (a heavy-duty unit - 10A or more - should have a 16 AWG cord).
  • An internal breaker or thermal switch is tripped. Look for a red, black or white reset pin on the motor (not all models have this). If you find one, push it in. If you feel a soft click when you do so, it was tripped. Trips are caused by using the appliance too long or too hard without allowing enough time to cool. Repeated trips may indicate a bad breaker, an internal short or bad bearing in the motor causing overheating. Some units have a thermal fuse (may be a silver-colored cylinder with tapered ends) in the wiring or built in to the motor.
  • Dirty contacts in the control switches. This is especially common if food has spilled over the pushbuttons. In really bad situations, you may have to disassemble the switch unit (often requires unbending crimp tabs on the switch shell) to hand-clean the contacts. It may be possible to fix it with copious amounts of contact cleaner. Check online to see if replacement switch units are available for your model.

If you know how to use an ohmmeter, start your tests by checking for continuity in the power cord, the motor and the switch unit. If you have a model with an electronic micro-controller, add this information; you may need additional troubleshooting directions. SAFETY REMINDER: unplug the appliance before performing any service on it.

Crossed power wires on uniden c b radio

Remove the top, the red wire is + and the black - there should be a small black diode near by, if the wires were crossed the diode is shorted and must be replaced "part of the protection circuitry" check for any open foils on the circuit board, If you are very lucky the unit will come back online.

GE Timer #15086 has red, white, green, black wires. Wall has white, black & black wires and switch sits between 3 other light switches. (I am replacing the current timer which only has 3 wires and...

GE 15086 programmable timer replaces single-pole switch only.
Single pole means 1 device turns Load on-off.
3-way is where 2 devices turn Load on-off, for example 2 switches located in hallway.

Your existing timer has white, black and blue wires.
Your new timer has white, black, red and green wires.
Green wire connects to bare ground wire in every occasion with every wiring device.

Electricians don't guess, they test the other wires.

Remove old timer.
Separate wires for testing.
Turn on power.
Tape ordinary tester leads to wood sticks to keep hands away from power.
Test each wire to bare ground wire.
Tester will light up on Hot wire. The Hot wire will connect to timer black wire.
Now test Hot wire to each other wire (except bare ground)
Tester will light up on Neutral wire. Neutral wire connects to timer white wire.

The remaining wire connects to timer red wire.
After connecting timer, push manual override button to check that Load turns on-off.

Manual override on 15086 is the door that covers buttons > use door as push button to check Load.
Next, program the timer.
Programming is straightforward and similar to other timers.
If you have a problem, add a comment.

You can also take advantage of Fixya phone support. Expert will walk you through the steps for a price.

I have no spark at spark plug I have checked all wiring and seems ok what are the other things to check and how???

1. The on/off button on the right switch housing could be off. Turn it on
2. The on/off button could be faulty.Take apart and use test light to see if the switch is working by turning it on and off and see if power crosses the connection with the switch on
3. The ignition switch could be faulty. Test with test light to see if your getting power to you coil
4. The stator provides the power. Use Ohm meter, black to ground(green), and red to white wire, then red to yellow wire. the reading should be the same for the white and yellow wire. example: 288 and 288
5. The signal generator/pulse pick-up, send the signal to the cdi. Use ohm meter , black to one end of the wire and red to the other end of the wire, should read 000. if anything else the wire is broke.
This wire is usually black with a red stripe or red with a black stripe.
6. The cdi sends signal to the coil, to fire on time and advance and retards the fire as the motor revs and decelerates. Can be tested but not fixed, must buy a used or new one.
7. The coil provides the spark. Easiest to put a working coil on and see if it fires, if it does, then your coil is bad and just needs replaced.
8. Make sure if its on the kickstand that it is in neutral. Its a safety switch.
9.Make sure you have a good battery.Most local auto parts stores load test them for free

I'm trying to install this for our outdoor Christmas lights. The wall switch box has 1 black, 1 white, and 1 bare (ground). Where do I connect the red "timer" wire from the timer unit? When I...

Single pole application, red wire is capped off.

That being said, you still have to connect Blue and Black wires correctly.
Switch has two wires, if you do not know which wire is which, follow instructions below.
Connect Blue and Black to either wire.
Turn on power.
Push ON-OFF button.
If lights work, then timer is wired correctly.
If lights don't work, then reverse Blue and Black.

Be sure outdoor bulb is working.
I have a long story about that, and tested every wire and breaker ... and bulb was burned out.

Try this, connect green wire to bare wire. Connect both black (power) wires to black wire in the box. Connect the blue wire to the button for the lights, and the red wire with the strip to the button for the fan, and the common for the buttons to the white wire.
