If its just a two wire connection then it should not matter. If more than two wires refer to the service manual or wire me back with more details.

Place heating element on dometic 2652 . The 2 heater leads j7 and j8 need plugged back in. Does it matter which goes where? they are both black wires


heating elements are simply resistance wires and allow current flow in either direction
so there is noconsideration for polarity
either way will be correct

Hi there what color are the mike wires trans,recive,audio, and screen


The colors shouldn't matter.... check the mic switch. and follow your wires to the mic plug. the common wire is normlly the ground to allow RX then when pressed for TX the other should then be your audio which will be connected to the mic element.. using this method you can wire any mic to any radio.. pending the mic element ohm value impedance is correct for the radio.

What is the part number I need?


google kitchenaid 2260502B. The "B" references the color ie, "black". If you need a different color, that character will be different. Look for a reasonably priced option, and there you go :)

Need a wiring diagram for rheem electric water 50 gallon 2007 model


1) Copy following links for standard wiring that applies to all brands electric water heater: wire colors vary, and do not matter.
You probably have ordinary residential non-simultaneous water heater.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-water-heater-thermostats.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/WH-w-combined2-1000.jpg

2) Look at tank label.
Typical label will show number of elements (upper and lower)
And give wattage for each element.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Figure-Volts-Amps-Watts-for-water-heater.html#label
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Whirlpool-energy-smart-watt-rating-IMG_2600.jpg
Notice also total connected watts.
If total connected watts is same as individual upper or lower element watts, then you have ordinary residential non-simultaneous tank.

KitchenAid Model KESC307 has a broken oven heating element. Can you fix this yourself? How? How much is part?


Hello Tgilreath,

I understand that you are having a problem with you KitchenAid range. The oven element is broken and needs replaced and you would like to know the cost of the element.

I can instruct you on how to change the element in your range. However, I do not know if it is the top of bottom element and the change procedure is the same on both of them. However, when looking up the element to tell you where you can purchase and the cost I came across many different KitchenAid models that contained the numbers you gave. There should be more letters and numbers on your tag for the model.

The following is steps are how you change out your element:

1. Disconnect the power to the unit
2. Remove the lower back cover on your range (the one that sits directly behind your oven)
3. Locate the two prongs on the bad element sticking thru the oven wall and remove the wires
4. In the oven remove the racks
5. In the oven remove the two screws holding the element in place
6. Remove the element by pulling in forward
7. Install new element in Reverse

You can locate the element on Sears Parts Direct at the following web-page, however you will need the full model number http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/kesc307?pathTaken=modelSearch&prst=0&shdMod=kesc307 You may also reply to this thread and I will get you a part number and the exact page you need to order the part.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com

It takes too long for oven to heat.


hello,

what this means is that there have been a disconnection from the element i.e the heat provider is it silver in color
or it weak it might need a replacement ,what you are to do to fix up this problem is to open (unscrew) then trace the wire down to the element if there is any loose wire the fix it up on the element but there non it mean that the element will need a replacement
You can get this element in a good technician shop around you for the replacement
rate this

thank you.

I changed the element in my Dualit toaster; still doesn't work


If I understand well the blackened wire is an overheated wire which it is probably but off in one point so no electricity comes to the element anymore.
However overheated wire in you metalic toaster is a very danger thing to have and need to replace all the wires you have noticed that they changed color or not look good contition.
The problem have been caused from a problematic element which is the one you have already replaced.
However you if after you replace the wires you need to inspect the toaster after some time in order to be sure that not any other element causing the problem.
Good luck.

Wiring


The new thermostat (I assume you must be changing one) will have several possible scenarios. If you have two elements and thermostats you look for the diagram that says two elements working NON-SIMULTANEOUSLY. In other words the top element heats until the thermostat is satisfied and then, and only then the power is sent to the bottom thermostat. The wiring diagram will have the numbers and colors of the wires for everything in the heater except your feed wires. Those colors don't really matter much. You will have three conductors--two hot wires and (likely) a bare ground wire.

Hope this helps.

Wiring hookup for a replacement part


hopefull yyou havent disconnect old switch yet. whirpool and kit aid are same Co. same parts used. assuming the correct part was sent for the corrrect burner. diffrerent element will require different rated swties(ie. small , large, dual and so forth.), the indivudal switches are labeled, on the swithc itself ( L1,L2,H1 H2, P1 andso forth, so although the switches looke differnet they should stil have the same lettered terminal to plug into .
