If it is a 1 way switch circuit (2core +earth cable) it should be LIVE/HOT in COM and Aux live (to the light) in L1 . I

f you have a 2 way circuit (3 core + earth cable) the aux strappers go in L1 & L2. and LIVE/HOT to COM

Remember to disconnect the power before working on electric wiring.

How to connect the power to the dryer


most likely 240volts as most 120 volt dryers are already wired,depending on if its a 3 or 4 wire system depending on local electrical codes,but if its a 3 wire cord,take the RED to terminal L1 and Black to L2 terminal on the dryer terminal board HINT:(the RED and Black can go on either L1 or L2 they are interchangable) ,then the White wire to the N neutral terminal on the dryer terminal board usuall between the L1 and L2 terminal,if theres a Green Wire on the cord this is safety ground and can be attached to any metallic part on the dryer,if its a gray flat cord the 2 outside wires are L1 and L2 the center is Neutral,
so its:
RED=L1 or L2
BLACK=L1 or L2
WHITE=N or Neutral
GREEN=Safety Ground the metal dryer frame

I am trying to wire a dayton booster pump. it shows a L1 and L2 connection on the 115v connection. L1 goes to P1 L2 goes to T4. on the 220v connection it shows L1 and L2. L1 goes to wire P1 and L2 goes...


The power cord has a green ground wire; two hot wires, which are black and red; and a white neutral wire. Attach the neutral to the middle connector and the two hot wires to either end of the terminal.
In order to safely ground the machine the green ground wire must be securely connected to the dryer frame. There may be a screw on the frame where you can attach the ground

Power cord comme unpluged from inside ac unit. has 2 spade and 1 green ground where do they go ?


Look for the terminals on the switch marked, "L1" and L2. this is where the two spade clips go. It really doesn't matter which one goes to L1 or L2 as long as you don't wire the green to either one. The green wire is the ground and should be screwed or clipped to the case of the unit.

Jenn-air electric down draft stove has power to the controlls but the power to the elements is not working on the stove and the oven. is there a fuse? What is my problem?


The electrical connections are as follows: L1 goes to one of the 120 VAC hot lines. N goes to neutral. L2 goes to the other 120 VAC hot line. You may have a separate ground wire (required on all new installations) connected to the stove frame. L1 + L2 = 240 VAC.

Your controls are connected to L1 and neutral. The wiring here is good. The heater elements are connected to L1 and L2 with no connection to neutral. Either the L2 line is open, or the L1 connection that provides power to the heaters is open (probably a different wire than the one providing power to the controls). L2 is the most probable culprit, and the problem could be the wall socket, the stove cord, or a bad connection inside the stove. (I recently fixed a case like this - both the socket and the plug on the cord were burned out.)

Bathroom pull cord switch i have L1,L2 and COM but i have 5 wires 2 red 3 grey what goes where?


You don't tell us where the wires come from. For instance if the red wires were from the power source, then those two red wires and the com would join. Then two greys would tie to L1 and the third would go to L2. This would give two intensities and off.

Posting a photo or having an electrician look at it might be a better idea.

If the reds and greys all come from the fixture itself it is anybody;s guess as to the connections.

Bathroom Pull switch


There are two possibilities here,

1. it is a mechanical failure i.e a part of the linkage has broken leaving the switch in the on position, did you see anything obviously wrong with the old switch?

2. It is an electrical failure either overload or arcing when the switch is being operated sometimes welding the contacts together. This can happen if the light is a fluorescent tube or ring type, which in combination with the fan start up, can cause this situation. If this is the case you need a higher current rated switch.
