The wire you have is designed to carry 220 volts. Assumming that your socket is a 220 socket and that is what your application is the following answer applies. The black wire goes to one of the straight prongs and the red wire goes to the other. The white wire goes to the tight angle prong and The ground wire goes to the ground screw. good luck

I need to know how to wire a hookup for an air compressor that takes 230V.


If you are installing a 3 prong plug you would only have 3 wires, none are color coded. The middle is your ground/neutral wire and the outer 2 are both hot so, as long as you put the middle wire onto the middle stud, the other 2 hot wires can go on either hot stud left or right they are both the same. If you are running a new circuit from the breaker box then you will need a 2- pole 240 volt breaker and what every amperage is listed for MAX breaker size on the compressor. Should be able to run # 10ga wire that is good for 30amps. The 2 hot wires would connect to the breaker and the middle wire would hook to ground in the breaker box.... You can use black or red wires for the hots and I would use green wire for the ground. Or you can run 10/3 romex wire to the outlet from the breaker box if you don't use conduit.......If you use romex the white wire will be ground/neutral and the other two the power wires it doesn't matter which goes where .....

As always, if you are in doubt about what to do, the best advice anyone should give you is to call a licensed electrician to advise what work is needed.

I would like to use the 1301 switch but my house circuit has 2 black wires and 1 red wire which terminals do I connect the wires to on the switch?


I don't know the copper-brand 1301 switch
Internet photos of the 1301 show that it has two screw terminals, and a green ground screw
Switch with 2 screws is a single-pole switch. (plug green ground screw)

Sounds like you are replacing 3-way switch with 3 screws. (plus green ground screw)
3-way switches control hallway lights, with switch at each end of hallway.

I think you need to buy a 3-way switch.

How to wire 3-way switch:
Bare ground always goes to green screw
The key is the dark-colored screw.
Old switch has dark-colored screw >> mark this wire.
Attach this wire to dark-colored screw on new switch.
Other two wires go to either screw.

How to wire to attic fan? Old Sping loaded timer has two wire connections Marked LINE and LOAD . There are two Romex- Three wire cables with Black , White (Common) and bare (Grd) wires coming into this box...


OK, your new switch will require the use of a neutral wire. So you will have to do what is called a pigtail. You will have to twist another white wire in with your other white wires to attach your neutrals to your switch. Note: white wires are called neutral not common. Hook the wires that were originally hooked up to your LINE to your HOT (Black) on your new timer, and the what was originally LOAD up to the new timer LOAD. SO as far as wiring all that will change is your white wires that need to attach to your timer NEUTRAL.

I want to put a switch on a existing light that has a power source from the main panel then carrys on to other wall receptacles.i just want the light to go on and off with the switch, not the receptacles.


there is a simple way and a not so simple solution, the simple solution is to take down the light fixture and replace with a pull chain fixture. I would have to know the building type commercial ...residential...is it hard piped and so on. In a residential setting the solution would be to install a piece of 14-2 romex between the fixture and the switch. 14-2 with ground is a flat cable with 3 wires (2 insulated and 1 bare). do not attempt with the power source on. the white insulated wire should be connected to the black wire in the fixture box, the other end of the white wire in your new piece of romex should be attached to one pole of the switch. the black wire in your new piece of romex should be attached to the black wire or gold screw of your fixture and the other end of your wire should be attached to the other pole of your switch. Now the other wire(the bare ground)if not attached will not affect the operation of the switch or light, but it is a safety which should be installed. all grounds should be connected to insure that any faulty wiring will trip the breaker saving anyone from getting shocked.

I am trying to install a fahrenheat f2543 heater with a fta2a double pole thermostat. there is a 12/2 wire coming into where the heater is being installed. how do i connect the red and black to the white...


Hi, this is very easy for you to do.The 12/2 Romex wire coming in is the power which you know. What you do need to know, is the voltage coming in? Sometimes they will use 12/2 Romex with ground for 220, 240, operation. You need to know if the T-stat is Line voltage 220, or 240 volt. You have to have the same voltage for both for it to control. Reguardless of the voltage, lets say it is in the 220 and up range. You take one of the 12/2 wires, white or black and hook it to the black or red on the T-stat and the white to the other one, red or black. Thats it, you are done! If the T-stat is 2-pole I am sure it is a high, Line votage T-stat. Best of Luck,
