DRYER: Switched a 3 prong to a 4 prong and heard a pop when pluged into the wall. I then noticed my hot and cold wire were mixed up. Fixed the switch and nothing works now. Breaker switched off and on many...


Hi - why did you convert the plugs in the first place? In elctricity theres no such term as hot or cold wires. Besides what do you mean by a 4 prong or 3 prong? electrical equipments are designed to operate on 3 pin single phase power or a 4/5 pin three phase systems.

the voltages in both systems are totally different pending on where you live - 110v or 230v for a single phase or 230v - 415v three phases.

A single phase cannot be converted to the three phases or vise versa unless you use sophisticated electronics to do so. Unless you know what you are doing you can modify the 3 pin to opertae safely on a 4 pin by choosing the correct conductors in relation to the three wire conductors in the 3 pin plug.

The sad story for you is this will be a rather expensive lesson - I wont be surprise if the extra voltage has zapped some of the components in your machine.

THE BEST ADVICE I CAN OFFER YOU RIGHT NOW IS TO EMPLOY THE SERVICES OF SOMEBODY TO HELP YOU OUT - ALTERNATIVELY AS YOU STATED "BUYING AN OVER $1000 DRYER"

For heat issue I had replaced the heat relay switch a year ago and that worked. For the start button holding issue I replaced the motor relay switch and the dryer is fine again.
