Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Hi, I have an old 2 wire chandelier I would like to make a plug-in. I have bought the wire swag kit to change it, but the chandelier wires are unmarked. Both wires are copper and I cannot see an insulator on either side...I need help!! Thanks!

Answers :

Can you determine some way of telling which wire goes to the center conductor on each of the lamp sockets. (That particular wire,-- however it is identified-- (Maybe a tracer thread? in the woven insulation, or a colored thread indicator?) Or just figure out which wire is going to the center connector (not the socket shell)-- and that is what we call the 'Hot Wire-- or in your house wiring-- that will be the BLACK wire. (The white wire is the return,-- or as some might call it the Neutral. Eventually it gets back to the circuit breaker box as the 'Neutral or Ground wire.)
Does that help?
If not let us know what other question we are overlooking in this comment.

I cannot charge my two year old electrolux pronto. I purchased a brand new hand held vacuum for it, but even the new one does not charge. When I plug in the cord nothing happens. If I turn on either the long handle or the portable unit within the long unit, the blue charging light comes on for a few seconds, then out. This tells me that the circuit is intact without a broken wire somewhere. I took it all apart carefully and could see nothing broken or out of place. On re-constructing it, it

The removable filter at the front is cleaned regularly, and is not clogged. However, the machine appears to be suffering from being clogged by dust, as it has started to make a high pitched noise, and I fear it may burn out. I can see some dust inside the front panel but cannot see how to remove the front to clean it out. (NB. I have located two screws - one on either side - but cannot see how to proceed further.) Please help! Thank you.

I just bought a Tfal Ultimate Autoclean iron FV 9450. I am reading through the manual and trying to figure out all the parts and functions. I cannot figure out how to remove the anti calc valve.

I have a dyson animal dc17 vacuum and it totally died. Now I can't figure out which wires go where when I install my new motor.

Loose wire ive got a loose wire inside my vax cyclonic 1700w and ive stripped it down but cant see anything and its still not working but it was working when i moved the wire from side to side. Please help

Sounds to me like you have a open wire. There is a break in the wire inside to the insulation and as you move it, it gains and loses connection. You can test it with a continuity tester as you move the wire or just replace it to see if that solves th ... Hoover U6630-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum

I have an older Oreck XL vacuum that sounds like it is running twice as fast as it should. I disassembled the entire vacuum, including disconnecting the motor wires, to clean out the hair, string, and other things. When I put everything back and connected all the wires, everything appears to work, including the light. The only problem is, it sounds extremely loud like the motor is running too fast.

The retractable wire in my S300i vacuum cleaner is tangled. This means I cannot pull the wire out. How do I untangle it? Thanks

First remove the bag and the filter, then open the top lid as far back as possible, and then push it a little further. It will make a horrible crunching noise as if it's broken, (which it isn't,) and will then lift free of the body. (If you're afraid ... Miele Vacuums

Hello, could you help please. I have a Bissel ProHeat 9400-M. The water remains in the bladder when the machine is on, in other words nothing happens and I cannot clean with it. Inside the tank the small flap is in the open position. I have always used your products although I did run the Bissell over an area that had been cleaned with another product. Could that have caused the problem by blocking it somewhere? I have cleaned everything and cannot see a blockage. Thank you for your help.
