Wiring 12/2 or 12/3


12/2 cable (Romex, UF, etc) consists of two insulated #12 and one uninsulated #12 conductor or wire. The two insulated wires have a black and a white colored insulation. Number 12 copper is rated for 20 amps. This cable can carry a single circuit with ground.

12/3 cable is identical to 12/2 with the exception being that it has a third insulated conductor that is colored red. This third wire allows one cable to supply 2 circuits (one on black and one on red with both sharing the white and ground wires) with one cable run. It is much cheaper to buy and install a single 12/3 cable than two 12/2 cables to get two circuits into the same general area.

Twenty amp 120 volt circuits in dwelling units are required for kitchens, dining rooms, washers, disposals, and other appliances that require more than 12 amps (but less than 16 amps) to operate. Twenty amp 240 volt circuits are typically for specialty appliances and devices such as electric heaters, pumps, etc. Generally, 20A/240V appliances devices do not need a 12/3 cable as they only require connections for Line1, Line2 and ground. One insulated conductor would be unused in a 12/3 cable serving such a device. A 12/2 cable is run instead and the white wire is taped red (any color other than gray or green, to indicated that it is no longer a neutral) at each location it is accessible, such as wiring compartments, panels and junction boxes.

Circuits fed by 12/2 cables will connect to single pole circuit breakers and those fed by 12/3 cables must be connected to double pole circuit breakers. Check the National Electrical Code (NEC) to determine which locations require GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) supplied circuits. The latest (2012) NEC requires most new circuits in dwelling units (residential) to be protected by AFCI (Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter) type circuit breakers. Consult your local building department to find out if the NEC has been adopted in your locality before installing.

Lastly, a 12/3 cable would be run between 3 way & 4 way light switches and hard wired smoke detectors; but only if they are on a 20 amp circuit. Most circuits in the home are 15 amp capacity, especially for lighting circuits. A 14/3 cable would be run on these circuits as there is no need for the additional expense of a cable with the larger #12 wires and the increased labor to handle, install and connect the wires to device terminals.

I hope this helps. Please rate my reply - thanks!

I have a GE 15350 mechanical timer. I am not sure how to connect the wires. I have the power wires from the box and then from the box to an outlet.


You should have 2 sets of cables, each with a black, white, and bare wires.The incoming black hot wire connects to terminal #1. The bridge between terminal #1 and terminal L _must_ be left in place.

The outgoing black (load) wire going to the outlet connects to terminal #2.

BOTH white (neutral) wires are connected to the terminal X.

The two bare wires are twisted together along with a pigtail and capped with a red or yellow wire nut. The pigtail is connected to the green screw on the timer case.

Install 2 way switch wire diagram


I think you mean that you need to wire a set of three way switches. That is when you have a switch at two locations to run the same load (lights for example). Without being able to draw a picture, I will try to explain this the best I can. You have probably 120 volts coming in on a 14-2 romex for a 15 amp circuit or a 12-3 romex for a 20 amp circuit consisting of a black, white, and a bare wire. You run that set of wires to one of the two switches. Then from that switch you need to run a type of 3-wire cable from that switch to the other. For example:14-3 romex for a 15amp. circuit or 12-3 romex for a 20 amp circuit. Do not reduce wire size if you start with 12 gauge wire coming in from the breaker. Then you again run a piece of 12-2 or 14-2 (depending again on the amp circuit you are running) from the second switch to the load or lights that the switches are serving. Now for terminating the wires. In both switch boxes you just connect the white wires together with a wire nut. The bare wires you also connect together with a wire nut, but also twist a short piece of bare wire in the wire nut. That tail will serve as your jumper to the green screw on the switch. Then all you should have left in each box is two black wires and a red wire. These three wires all go to the switch. On the switch you should have three screws on the sides. One is darker than the other two. That darker screw gets the black from the 14-2 or 12-2. Then all thats left is the black and the red that come from the 14-3 or 12-3. Those two go to the remaining two screws on the switch. It does not matter which one either goes on. That should do it now you just wire the light like you would any other.
Hope this helps. Any other questions feel free to email me.
P.S. Don't forget to turn off the power!!

I need to wire my DJ-20 Jointer back to 230 and I don't have schematic Suggestions?


Assuming you have a standard dual-voltage single-phase motor, your wire colors should be:

T1 - Blue
T2 - White
T3 - Orange
T4 - Yellow
T5 - Black
T8 - Red

For 220V wiring, you want:

Line 1 (to Black wire from switch):
Blue
Black

Line 2 (to White wire from switch):
Yellow

Tied together with a wire tie:
Red
Orange
White

This should make it so the shaft spins counter-clockwise. If you need it to spin the other direction, switch the red and black wire from the motor.

On My Delta DJ-20 Byrd head Jointer I don't have a wiring schematic to switch it back to 230 previous owner had it wired for 110. Any suggestions besides calling Delta to send me Schematic

Also, don't forget to change the wiring the switch. Most likely you will need to run both the black wire and white wire through the switch.

Will not pressure up even though it runs and runs and runs


Check for leaks of course... THEN check the check valve AND the Compression Relief valve which is OFTEN cintained in teh pressure switch. This valve bleeds the compression left in the head so the thing can restart without a pressure load. This is a small pintle that closes when the pressure switch starts the compressor. The check valve is the other thing and it is often a part of either the head or the pressure line to the tank at the tank.
