On a dyson dc15 animal, which black wire connects to the black wire on the brush bar motor underneath vaccum head? and which connects to the white wire?

If you get it wrong, the brush will move in the wrong direction. Nothing else.

My Oreck has become very hard to push across

IF IT PUSHED EASILY ON THE SAME CARPET BEFORE, THEN THE BRUSHROLL IS NO LONGER CONTACTING THE CARPET IT USED TO. A NEW BRUSHROLL AND/ OR BELT SHOULD GET YOU MOVING AGAIN. TRY THE BELT FIRST, MUCH CHEAPER.

IF YOU HAVE RECENTLY CHANGED THE BELT BY REMOVING THE BASEPLATE (NOT THE RECOMMENDED WAY) CHECK BASEPLATE TO MAKE SURE IT IS FLUSH WITH HOUSING.

The brush roll works for a second than red light goes on and it stops. No obstructions to stop the rotation

First make sure that there is no threads wrapped around the roller brush at each end. Next place a couple drops of motor oil in the crack at each end of the roller brush to lubricate the bearings. Do not over oil or you will get oil on your carpet. Now try starting the vacuum on the kitchen floor.. If it still shuts off, then the motor windings are shorted out, meaning the motor is defective and needs replaced. If the vacuum cleaner costs about $ 100.00 , you would be better off buying a brand new vacuum cleaner, rather than replacing the motor.

I have Hoover Widepath Bagless 12 Amp Windtunnel

Hi There,

When a vacuum cleaner smokes, it is usually only one of two possible problems.

It could either be that your motor burned up, or that your belts burned. The belts on this particular model are notorious for breaking, but the fact that your machine doesn't come on at all after this happened, sounds like it may be the motor.

Both of these issues have a unique smelling smoke. If the smoke smelled like an electrical burning smell, this indicates it's your motor. If the smoke smelled more like burning rubber, then it's probably your belts.

If the smoke smelled like burning rubber, here's a video that we've recorded showing step by step how to inspect, trouble shoot, and replace the belts on your vacuum cleaner. If you open it up and the belts are still in tact, then this probably is a more serious problem of the motor burning out.

. I'd be more then happy to walk you through more advanced diagnosing if this doesn't fix your problem, please just use the comment box here on the Fixya repair page.

If this was helpful to you, please be so kind and rate my repair helpful, or leave some feedback for me. This is really appreciated by the Fixya community if the repair solution was able to fix your problem.

Thanks again,

Chris Jones

Foodsaver vacuum sealer tray full light

Clean the two little contacts on the tray. Make absolutely sure there isn't anything across the two wires that run the length of the tray. It doesn't take much to trigger the light.

Cleaning The Brush Head

I got pretty good results this way (and mine was trashed): Hot water first. Dry the exterior enough to tape the suction end with duct or electrical tape to get a good seal. fill from the other end with bleach. Shake it around and then let it sit in the sink full of bleach for a few minutes. Then remove tape and flush with hot water. The sides of the window may still have debris, hair, or mildew left over. With hot water running, I would alternately add water, and tap the whole attachment against the side of the sink to loosen it up. I kept doing that until i was happy with the results. 37c10874-0738-4aca-8ef6-36cc7428a263.jpg

Home vacuum cleaner troubleshooting

Burning smell from a vacuum usually comes from the belt....check for any objects caught between the belt and the brush roll. Is the surface selector at the correct setting?
