You may as well run a new 4 Wire cord from the panel to this receptacle as its a 3 pole 4 wire receptacle you will need to add 2 wires a Neutral and a Safety Ground wire anyway and you will most likely need to widen the hole that the existing 2 wires protrude from,anyway as old as these wires are they need changing out anyway

SOURCE: wiring 4 wird dryer plug to 3 wire 10/3 for 220 welder

the four wire plug seperates the neutral and ground. the three wire just piggybacks the ground to the neutral. so just get a three wire cord that fits the 220 plug on the generator and install it on your dryer make sure to attach the ground correctly for your three wire setup

The following link explains how to correctly install a power cord to the terminal block of a dryer:

Take note of the difference between a 4-wire and 3-wire configuration. The color codes for both installations are as follows:

RED - HOT (120 VAC)
GREEN - Ground

The main difference between the two configurations is how the Neutral wire and Ground wire is installed.

In a 3-wire configuration ground and neutral are connected together at the terminal block.

In a 4-wire configuration ground and neutral are INDEPENDENT of each other. Neutral is terminated at the terminal block, while ground is terminated on a ground lug on the equipment cabinet.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

SOURCE: A diagram of how to wire a 220 volt outlet from

You can't really do that. The two 110 outlets probably come for the same 'leg' of the 240. If you check them with a meter, there will be '0' volts between the two hot wires. So, they have the same 'potential'. You need a regular 240 volt circuit from a double pole breaker that is rated for the wire size that it's feeding. 20 amp-#12 ; 30 amp- #10 etc.

SOURCE: Dryer outlet does not have common wire.

The following link explains how to convert from a 3-wire to 4-wire configuration and vice versa:

The main difference between these two configurations is how the ground (green or bare copper) and neutral (white) wires are terminated. In a 4-wire confugration, the ground and neutral are independent of each other. In a 3-wire configuration the neutral wire will be grounded at the terminal block in back of the dryer by a ground strap.

Since you have an existing dryer outlet with a 3-prong configuration, the easiest solution would be to replace the dryer cord with a 3-prong cord to match your outlet. No need to rewire your house. A new cord can be purchased at an appliance parts retailer or hardware store for about $20 or less.

If you have questions about this repair, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

How do I find a wiring diagram for a utilitec pump?

If it's a 120 volt unit white is neutral and all other colors are hot- green (or bare) is always ground. The switch is always on the hot lead. Switch has two wire coming out of it (may have ground from the body of the switch) this brakes the connection from the supply line(hot) to the motor or device.
If this is 240v which I don't think it is because you have to have special receptical to plug it in

I need a owners manual for a Sunquest Pro 24 RS, Wolff Systems tanning bed

Have a trained technician to look at it. You probably have a loose wire nut in the wall box if it is hardwired or a loose connection on the wall receptical. The screws on the recepticals can come loose when pushing the receptical into the wall box. Most new construction uses plastic wall boxes so shorting out the receptical screws to the box should not be a problem. It is possible that the bare ground wire inside the box is hitting one of the receptical screws. If so, then push the bare wire away from the screws with an insulated screwdriver.

Replaced fan motor for outdoor ac unit old fan has blue,black,red,and green wires new fan has brown,black,yellow,brown/white and green what goes where

Hi, the 2 - brown wires are for there own run capacitor they should have sold you. One of the browns will have a white stripe. The new cap has only 2- terminals and you put a brown on each side. The black and yellow wires are both hot which 1- will go to 120 volts on the load or out side of the contactor, and the same with yellow, 120 volts. This gives you 220 volts to run the motor. Look on the new motor and you will have a diagram or on a paper that comes in the box. The old motor used the dual cap to run the compressor to. The green is just a ground wire. Screw it to any metal part or screw. You should be able to put the black and yellow hot wires where the old black, red, or blue were as long as they are 120 volts which I am sure they are. Get a cheap tester when you go get the cap for the new motor, and check the old blk, red, and blue terminals to ground and you should have 120 volts on at least 2 of them. Put the new yellow to 1 and black to another, browns to the new cap and your off and running. Keep me posted. I do this everyday. Please be kind when rating me, thank you.

Hi, this can be confusing. Be sure you have the power off before you wire it, but first you have to have an elect meter. The 6 wires in the box you will only use 2 of them. Cap the other 4 off. Use the 2 that have the correct voltage across them, 208, 220, 240 volts. The new stat is only set up for 2 hot wires 120 each. That will do it. Not to bad. be careful! Use care. Good Luck, Sincerely,

I need a wiring diagram for a kobalt 60 gallon air compressor

If it's a 220 volt motor, hook l1 and l2 (220 volts) to the line terminals. If it's a'dual voltage' motor (120 or 220)and you want to use 120, hook 120 to the terminals marked 'line'. Make sure the motor is connected for the voltage you're using if it's dual voltage.
