Have European Swarovski chandelier wblack/brown pair wire, green and blue separate wires, need to install in USA

I have a Swarovski chandelier that I bought in Germany; I need to hook it up in USA; it has a black/brown wire pair, and a separate green and blue wire, for a total of four wires. I figure green is the ground, but I can't figure out how to hook them up with my American wiring.

This will probably take a meter, first prove the green is ground with an ohm meter from the green lead to the frame or case, if so, we know what to do with that.

next, I need ohm readings between the remaining three leads with NO POWER and switch on.

For example between black to brown 10 ohms, from blue to black 5. from blue to brown 5 ohms, whatever it is, or if they have no connection at all.

From there we have a good start.

I try for different way to fence with wire #24 my antique chandelier.There are not way to pass the wires in the holes.They are very ,very small holes that never can see before. I'm sure that the wires...


Can the small holes be drilled out to a larger diameter so that larger wiring can be passed through? The wiring should be at least #18 fixture wire unless the bulbs are very small wattage. Good luck!

I have a three way switch in a lamp, one red wire one black wire and one blue wire coming out off the switch,how do I wire off the switch?


Black is the AC power into the switch, and the others are the switched power leads out. Take a close look at the switch housing and you might see small markings reading L1 and L2 by the red and blue leads.

To wire the switch, use a pressure connector (wire nut) to connect the black lead to the incoming AC power. On a polarized line cord, where the plug has one prong wider than the other, the hot side is the narrow prong. The neutral side, which connects to the white wires from the lamp sockets, is the wide prong, and the cord usually has a ridge molded in.

The red and blue wires go to the sockets. (This kind of switch is usually used in three-socket lamps, so I assume that's what you have.) The red lead should connect to the black wire from one socket, and the blue lead to the black wires from the other two. The usual sequence is power off, L1 (red) on, L2 (blue) on, L1 and L2 on. So as you turn the switch (or press the button in a push switch) you get one light, then two, then all 3 on.

Make sure all your connections are good and tight with UL approved connectors and there are no exposed bare wires, and you should be good to go.

Thermostat, honeywell ct31a1003, brand new wont turn on heater, no ac, need wiring diagra. only red and white wires were previously connected. where do they go on new thermostat?


The red wire goes to the R or Rc terminal and the white wire goes to the W terminal. If there is more wires like a yello that goes to Y and there is probably a green this goes to G. There could also be a black and a blue the black would go to C and the blue would go to Y2.

I am installing a chandelier that has clear wire covering. One side has some writing on it ''AWM'' and the other wire has nothing on it. Which wire, black or white connects to the wire with the AWM on it?


I'm assuming this chandelier has the standard round screw base connectors for the light bulbs. Check the connection with an ohmmeter, which wire is connected to the center connection and which one is connected to the outside threaded screw. Connect the one which is connected to center connection to the black wire, and connect the other one to the white one.

I need to connect two switches to one power source in a two gang box. There are two different light sets.


The proper way to wire two switches in a 2 gang switch box to control each light separately is as follows:

  1. Make sure you have the power turned off at the breaker for this box.
  2. Take the HOT (common, black wire) FEED wire and add (2) pieces of black wires to it with a wire nut.
  3. Now you can put one of each of these black wires to the bottom screw of each light switch to provide power to both switches separately
  4. Connect each separate wire to the (2) different lights to the top screw of each switch.
  5. Twist all the bare ground wires together, leaving at least 7-8 inches at the ends untwisted for at least 2-3 of these wires.
  6. Take (2) of these ground wires and connect them to the ground screws on each separate switch. If it is a metal box these area in, connect one ground wire to the box with a green grounding screw also, if not, cut off the extra ground lead near the twisted bunch.
  7. Now twist all white (netural) wires together and install them all under one wire nut.
  8. Make sure the bare wires are not near or touching the HOT screws and fasten the switches to the box.
You now have an approved and legal wiring for (2) separate light switches using the one power source (FEED) already in the box.

Replacing blower motor in furnace w/Fasco brand #D727


Some one missed the wiring diagram. I believe its like this:
L1 = Line 1 = (Hot all are same thing)
Black Hi
Blue Med
Red LO
Now usually the black is for AC and connects to a normally Open (NO) contact on the blower relay.
The heater speed (either red or blue) go the the normally Closed (NC) on the blower relay and on one side of this wire or contact on the relay it goes to the heating blower thermostat on the furnace.
The remaining wire (blue or red) you tape off.
L1 also feeds the Run Capacitor on 1 side and the Brown wire feeds the opposite side

The white wire is Neutral and goes to the neutral on the main line.

If this helps you please rate me accordingly and good luck.
