In order to wire a 4 way switch, there needs to be a total of 3 switches working to operate a device/light. you need a 2-wire coming from power source, 3-wire from first switch to 4-way switch then 3-wire to last switch. white wires (neutral) get connected together. Depending on the layout of the switches. i.e where the power comes from and where the switch leg goes to but a basic 4 -way switch is in between 2 other 3-way switches.

Precor error codes 53


Precor Error 53, Can't Read Target, Can't Find Home Switch Probable Cause 1. Blown F2 fuse.
2. Home switch wiring is damaged or has intermittent connection.
3. Gear (elevation/incline) motor wiring is damaged or has intermittent connection.
4. Home switch is bad.
5. Gear (elevation/incline) motor is bad.
6. Gear (elevation/incline) motor target is damaged.
7. Lower PCA is bad.
Corrective Action
  1. Disconnect power from the unit. Remove the F2 fuse from the lower PCA. Using an ohm meter, measure the fuse for 1 ohm or less. If the reading is considerably high, replace the fuse. If the fuse is blown, inspect further for the cause to avoid the fuse blowing again. Inspect for damaged gear motor wiring or a bad gear (elevation/incline) motor. Replace if necessary.
  2. Thoroughly inspect the home switch wiring for damage or intermittent connections. Repair or replace damaged wiring or poor connections as necessary.
  3. Thoroughly inspect the gear (elevation/incline) motor wiring for damage or intermittent connections. Repair or replace damaged wiring or poor connections as necessary.
  4. Ensure the moving arm is away from the home switch and disconnect power from the unit. Disconnect both wires from the home switch. Using an ohm meter, check for approximately 0 ohms. Continue to monitor the home switch resistance and activate the home switch by hand. The reading should change from approximately 0 ohms to open (infinite). If either reading is considerably incorrect, replace the home switch.
  5. With unit disconnected from power, disconnect both wires from the gear (elevation/incline) motor. Using an ohm meter, check for approximately 9 ohms through the gear (elevation/incline) motor wiring. If the reading is considerably high or low, replace the gear motor.
  6. Inspect the gear (elevation/incline) motor target for rips, tears, or bad scratches. If any of these are found, replace the target.
  7. During the start up sequence, check the voltage at the gear (elevation/incline) motor. Voltage should be approximately 12VDC. The voltage should only be present between the time the sequence was started and the error 53 occurred. If the voltage is considerably low or absent and the F2 fuse proved good, replace the lower PCA.

We have a fan 60 minute push button timer we purchased and installed with a 3-wire system. WE need to purchase another one but they all have 4 wires now. Where can we purchase a 3-wire one.


It sounds like you have mechanical push-button type timer.
I need more information to avoid guessing which timer is best for your situation.

I'm not sure what a 3-wire system is?
Add a comment
1) How many switches control same fan
2) What color wires inside box.

Is this
3) low-horsepower bathroom fan?
4) other fan, for example: higher horsepower attic fan, 3/4 horsepower industrial kitchen fan, or 1-horsepower whole house fan?
5) Is this your home or is fan for continual commercial use?

6) Is this a countdown timer that turns fan OFF automatically after 60 minutes?
7) Or what kind of timer are you looking for.

Open following link for list of home-use countdown timers and horsepower ratings of countdown timers.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Countdown-timer-horsepower-ratings.html

Spring-wound timers do not require extra Neutral wire, and can control 1 HP whole-house fan.
The push-button timers each require Neutral wire to run electronics inside timer, and they range from 1/6 HP to 3/4 HP which will work for any bathroom fan.

I can help, but I need a lot more specific info. Please use these naming conventions to describe what you have:
G1, G2 -- the two gangs of 4 switches each G1S1 - the first switch in gang 1 L1 - light, appliance or outlet number 1
Describe how each light is controlled as follows: L1 - G1S1 & G2S1 (one light controlled by a pair of 3-way switches) L2,L3 - G1S2 (assumes a normal switch controlling two lights) etc. for all of the L's presently controlled by all 8 switches
Then describe what you want the 6 new switches to operate.

I cut the wires to my home theatre speakers and I want to splice them back together. How do i do it?


Dont worry this is easy,
1. Strip the wires back about 1/2" each
2. Twist the ends together nice & tight
3. Wrap the exposed wire with electrical tape so you cant see the bare wire
4. test run the speakers
5. If you get any feed back or it sounds bad switch the wires around on the back of the speakers

That should do it
Good Luck
