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.

Garbage Disposal Clogged or Jammed

If you are having problems with your garbage disposal, the chances are that it is either clogged or jammed. There are some things you can do to prevent these problems. Also you need to know what to do if this happens to you.


The first thing you need to be aware of the types of things that can cause your garbage disposal to jam.

1. Anything metal, like coins, can tabs, twisty ties
2. Plastic like bread bags, lunch baggies, etc…
3. Plastic bag ties
4. Large seeds, or pits, like peach seeds, cherries seeds. etc…
5. glass…say from a broken glass in the sink the gets it the disposal
6. Large amounts of food built up without running the disposal.

If the disposal jams you need to get it shut off quickly. If you do not get it shut off soon enough, it will “trip” the reset and you will have to manual push the reset button to get it to run again. The reset button is a red button usually near the bottom of the disposal motor. This button will pop out if it is tripped and you will have to push it back in to get the motor to work again.

A jam can be identified by a distinct “hum”. When this happens you will need to get the motor free before turning it back on again. Just turning it on and off without working the plate back and forth till it is free will only cause damage to your disposal. To get the plate free, some disposals have a place to insert a ¼” allen wrench that is usually provided with the disposal. The slot for the allen wrench is in the bottom of the disposal motor. By inserting this wrench and rocking the motor back and forth the plate can be worked free and the motor will turn freely again. However, before turning on the disposal again, make sure to find the cause of the jam and remove it or it will just jam again.

If your disposal does not have a slot for an allen wrench, you can use a piece of wood like a hammer handle or a broom stick to reach in a turn the plate from the top. This is much more difficult, but does work with some effort.

Once the disposal plate is free and rotating easily, run a full stream of water and turn on the disposal to clean it out.

I have a mechanically controlled (variable rheostat) dehumidifier (Haier HDN 305). When I turn this humidity contol clockwise its resistance reads a constant 1 megaohm until I get to 1/3 of the way to the...

Sounds like the rheostat is at fault, but beware that when connected to the PCB, it may be in series/parallel or both with other resisters.

From your reading its a good bet that the rheostat has gone. In saying that it could be the sweeper arm in side the stat? Can you get inside it to check/clean??

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.

Thermastat and furnace

you should have 24 volts between yellow and white wires at the stat when the stat is set to heat and set as hot as it will go. burners should light first then 3 to 5 minutes later the fan motor should fire up. if burner doesn't light check the wires going into the top of the gas valve see if you have 24 volts arriving there from the stat. if you do then the gasvalve is probably bad. you can bypass the action of the stat by jumping red to white on 90 percent of the stats made and in a few seconds the gas valve should click open gas flow to main burner where pilot ignites it. another easy check you can do is flip stat fan switch to on. fan should come on at once. if not then you have either no high voltage to unit or no low voltage ( as in a bad transformer). if the fan comes on you know you have high volts and low cover i assume you mean the decorative cover but there second cover with the mercury bulbs and all is still there. if you have only the bare subbase then new stat time. sounds like an old furnace if it has a standing pilot, it should be checked for cracked heat exchanger by a pro with a n electronic carbon monoxide detector. NOT a diy item due to the real danger of co poisoning.
