240 Volt Connector Order

Hi,

Silly me forgot to write down how the 240 Volt power cord connectors and earthing connectors were orientated. Has anyone worked with the GW712 that could email me picture of how the connectors are placed back on or have a wiring diagram? I do have a JPG of the way I have currently connected but cannot see how to up load it. I do not know how to earth it correctly as I have a left over conector.

Thanks in advance,

Mark Street

    I know the user manaul calls for an authorised agent. I have serviced the machine myself and removed the power cord when I serviced it. I cannot remember where all the grounding wires are connected to. I do have a picture of what I am talking about but cannot see how to upload it. Can anyone provide me the electrical schamatics?

    Regards,

    Hi,



    I do have the spare parts manual but it does not show you how to plug in the returns and ground.



    I have uploaded a JPG if anyone knows how to plug it back in it would be appreciated.

  • jason Nov 17, 2008

    the white connector has different connecting ends than the black one , but those plugs have the two wires coming out but they are the same line

Howw do you make a Samsung bd-F5700 blue ray player operate on a 240 volt power supply


You'll need to bring the voltage down to 110-120 volt. Travel converters do this cheap and effective. The player only uses 12 Watt according to the manual. You could use an old 3 prong extension cord to cut of the connector to connect to your power supply. Get the converter below and plug it into the adapter, who then will fit in the extension cord.

Hi, in Antec 300watt power supply there is 3 cables or input or current 220volt. The cables are Black, Green and white. Which one is earth, which on is live(positive) and which one is negative?


For 120 volt operation use
black for the hot, White for the natural, Green for earth ground.
For 240 volt operation use;

Black and White for the 240 volt and Green for earth ground.
Black is generally designated as the "Hot" or "positive" .
You must make sure the switch on the power supply is set for the voltage you are using. ie: 120/240

Fault finding


Power is going to the motherboard, and you know this by assuming?

An assumption would be you see the Power Supply fan spin, LED lights light up, and maybe computer case fans spin.

Not an assumption, and you would have tested the 3 main voltage power rails, coming out of the Power Supply.

The Power Supply in your computer is an SMPS.
Switched-Mode Power Supply. (Also is known as the short abbreviation - PSU. Power Supply Unit)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Switched-mode_power_supply

The Power Supply in your computer is a Converter.
It converts HIGH AC voltage into 3 LOW DC voltages.

[Depending on country,
USA = 120 Volts AC. UK = 240 Volts AC. Japan is 100 Volts AC, but may depend on area. Australia = 240 Volts AC. India = 240 Volts AC. HOWEVER, do not write the above in stone. I may have made an error ]

The 3 low main DC Voltages coming out of the Power Supply is;
A) 3.3 Volts DC
B) 5 Volts DC
C) 12 Volts DC

Orange wires carry 3.3 Volts DC
Red wires carry 5 Volts DC
Yellow wires carry 12 Volts DC
ALL Black wires are Ground wires. They can also be called Negative wires.
This is a DC circuit now. There is a Positive, and a Negative.
Orange, Red, and Yellow wires are power wires, and also Positive wires.

The first part of your diagnosis will be to test those 3 main voltage power rails.

[Digressing;
Using an example;
There are many Red wires coming out of the Power Supply.
These are 5 Volt wires. They are Connected TO, the 5 Volt power rail in the Power Supply.
ALL 5 Volt wires end in one place, in the Power Supply.
The 5 Volt power rail.
When you test just ONE red wire, you are testing the entire 5 Volt power rail coming from the Power Supply.

This also goes for the Orange wires, and Yellow wires ]

With the Red 5 Volt wires, and Yellow 12 Volt wires, you could just use a 4-pin Peripheral power cable to check them,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

Multimeter set to DC Voltage, the red (Positive) probe lead of the multimeter; touches the female metal terminal connector, for the Red wire.

http://www.mcmelectronics.com/product/28-9420&utm_medium=Affiliate&ref=cj&utm_campaign=CommissionJunction&utm_source=CommissionJunction?t=2&utm_expid=8634549-14

The black (Negative) probe lead of the multimeter, touches a female metal terminal connector, that goes to a Black wire.

You should be reading 5 Volts DC.

Same thing for the Yellow 12 Volt wire.

With an Orange 3.3 Volt wire, this changes.
A straightened out paperclip is inserted, down into the BACK of the ATX main power cable's connector; AND into a socket hole with an Orange wire in it.

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain20

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

The straightened out paperclip, slides down into the socket hole, with the Orange wire in it.
Slides down into the socket hole, RIGHT NEXT TO the orange insulation of the wire, and MUST go down far enough; to Touch that female metal terminal connector.

EVERY wire going down into the ATX main power cable's connector, ends in a female metal terminal connector.

Same thing is down with a socket hole that has a Black wire in it.
ALL Black wires are Ground wires. (Negative)
You can choose ANY socket hole that has a Black wire in it.

Now touch the two probe leads of the multimeter, to their respective straightened out paperclips.

Red (Positive) probe lead of multimeter, to straightened out paperclip in Orange wire socket hole.
Black (Negative) probe lead of multimeter, to straightened out paperclip in Back wire socket hole.

You should be reading 3.3 Volts DC.

(Or if your multimeter kit has special probe lead, that would take the place of a straightened out paperclip, of course use it instead)

Know this;
A) If ALL of the LED's ('lights') were on at once, they would use less than 1 Watt of power.

B) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.

C) A typical CPU (Processor) can use 51 to 130 Watts of power.
Just depends on what Processor (CPU) it is.

This is why a Power Supply with a weak voltage power rail, will not have enough power to turn the Processor ON, but will have enough power to light those simpy LED's, and spin fans.

Three year old Dometic RM 2555, 3 way Frig/freezer has failed on 240VAC however works on Gas. I suspect the PCB is faulty


Hello,
My rm2555 has just failed on 240 volt. But not 12 volt.
It turned out to be the 240 volt element .
Fairly easy to replace. If you have a multimeter test the resistance, mine was open circuit.
Does yours work on 12volt?
The two heater elements (ie 12v and 240v ) are on the right when viewed from behind with four large wires coming out, plus an earth wire. There are labels on some of the wires. The 12 volt conects into a terminal connector, where as the 240 volt is fitted with spade connectors and is attached to the printed circuit board, under the white plastic cover. The elements are "L" shaped and are just pushed down in down next to each other. The cover seems to unclip fairly easily to enable removal.
Hope this helps.

I am trying to hook up a 3 prong cord into the dryer but I dont know how you hook up the ground wire.


What voltage does the dryer require? There should be a 'nameplate' somewhere on the machine that has the voltage and Gas requirements. (if it isn't a gas dryer then it'll probably be 240 volt. If it is a gas dryer then a standard 120 volt cord should work). Be sure you are attaching the proper cord... The ground wire should be crimped into a ring terminal connector or a spade terminal connector (can be picked up at any hardware store) and screwed onto any metal surface of the machine(there may be a green screw designated for the ground wire connector)

Mains wire at back of fridge has come out how do i re-wire it


Hi, are you saying that the main power cord has been pulled loose from all connections? Has any componants come along with it? Wiring a power cord is fairly an easy task if you are familar some what with wire colors for a 120 volt power cord. You should be able to take a good look at where it has come apart and reconnect the cord with wire connectors, as Hot would be black to black, and white is nuetral, so white to white and green for ground to the appliance. Now, If you have accidently pulled out the wiring from the compressor terminals, as the start, run, and common terminal, I need to no this to quide you through this, as there is also a overload relay that is wired through the common terminal to protect the compressor against an overload. Please get back to me if this has happened.
Sincerely,

My laptop will not charge!! the charger works, but it just wont charge my laptop!


most likely either a bad connector on the power cord or you've broken the motherboard connector. check the power cord with a volt meeter. if it comes up fine the i would recommend either contacting the manufacture or taking it to a reputable tech. if you are comfortable with doing it you can take the laptop apart and look at the connector with the laptop apart plug it in (CAREFULL IT COULD KILL YOU) and test the voltage after the connector wit the volt meeter. if it has power then most likely *********** board is dead. if it doesn't have power then you need to repair/replace the power connector.
