    Your saying that you can not find a plug to fit the twistlock 220 outlet?





    I think you should be able to get one of those localy or online.



    If not you can always have someone change the plug to a standard 220 plug.

Go to an electric supply store and let them know it is a 20 amp plug. The big box stores only have a few selections of plugs
I had the same generator and had to modify the plug to make it fit correctly

How do i connect a three prong wire to a four prong plug for 240 volts


DO NOT DO THIS.

A 3 prong plug is L1 L2 and ground, a 4 pong plug has a neutral.
If you are backfeeding a dryer outlet it is dangerous. Generator N and G should be isolated unless it is a seperately derived source

The 220 plug has 4 leads and my 220 compressur has 3 wires how do i make the conection


The four wire 220 twist lock receptacle Two hot wires, one neutral, and a safety ground. Depending on your generators setup the neutral and ground are bonded as one; unless, it setup for a floating neutral.
You would normally connect the two hots and neutral. and leave the ground open on the four prong twist lock plug. Just make sure the compressor is earth grounded on its end.

I have a 4 prong tanning bed 220v and my appliance outlet at home only accepts the 3 prong plus such as the ones you see on a dryer. How can i get this converted to a 3 prong so that i can plug it in? Or...


It is because you tanning bed requires L1 and L2 (240V) and a seperate neutral, and a ground. You need an electrician to install a proper outlet. A dryer (years ago) was installed without a neautral. However per NEC electrical code even new dryers have to have 4 wires. Do not attempt to use on 3 wires !

Generator 4 prong220v outlet to 3 prong 220v plug


Go to your electricians store and ask if they have a converter plug, Don't go to a Homedepot type place, go to the specialty place where electricians go. Their depth of knowledge is way better.

Want to add 240volt outlet to generator


You CANNOT do this, USA 240V is derived from a poly phase scenario, IE 120V line to neautral and 240V line to line, UK 240V is derived from 1 line to neutral it will not work unless you power a transformer

Coleman Powermate Progen 5000, the 240 locking 4 plug, how to wir


The L1420p is a common plug used for most all generators having 20amp outlet with ground. The markings on the plug are as follows; x,y, are hot connections 115v each; w connection is neutral; g is ground. You will need a four conductor cable to connect all the wires. In some cases, there is no need to connect the ground wire because on the generator, the ground is the frame. Check your manual for the proper method of attaching a ground to your generator. So unless you are grounding the frame to a ground rod or other method, the ground wire on the plug just goes to frame. If the heater is used on a jobsite, check local codes or OSHA requirements. You could also just ground the heater like many appliances in the home where there is an extra ground wire from the frame of the appliance to ground. Good Luck
