From what you say sounds like you just want to know you have 120v to the plug. In that case wire 1 end to dark and other to lighter color. 
If it is a switch its a little differant. You have to know which terminal is HOT when the switch is on and wire ons side of lite to this term and the other side to nutural.
Usually pilot lights are not polarity sensitive so either wire to either line on teh pilot is ok UNLESS THE WIRES ARE MARKED. And you dont indicate that they are marked. IF THIS HELPDS PLEASE RATE ME & GRADE ME ACCORDINGLY. GOOD LUCK

Why do i get power at the 120v outlet but nothing works when its plugged into the outlet


It sounds like a bad neutral wire. Somewhere the neutral is not properly connected. Most residential wiring operates on a 240 single phase system comprised of two seperate 120 volt legs. Connect between either leg to the neutral gives you 120 volts.connect btween the two legs gives you 240 volts. If the neutral is not present the circuit will search out the other leg to try to complete the circuit causing dimming of lights extremely bright lights and all around chaos. Check ahead of the main to see that the voltage is correct. Check each leg to neutral with a voltage tester. Have some one turn some lights on and off while checking as sometimes a load is required to get fluctuating readings. If the reading fluctuate wildly the problem is between the power grid and the panel. If not recheck on a a couple of breakers and if the readings fluctuate it is on your side of the system.
. Hope this helps

I am trying to wire a cooper 277 swich to control an outlet. I am having a hard time getting it to work. I have followed the wiring diagram with no luck. I would like the Pilot to be on when the switch is...


Open following link for cooper 277 wiring illustration:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Cooper-277-pilot-400.jpg

Wired as shown in illustration, the pilot light and the Load will come on each time switch is turned on.
The illustration show Load is light bulb.
In your case, the Load will be an outlet instead of light bulb.
So the Load will have 2 wires. The black wire from switch connects to brass screw on outlet. The neutral connects to silver screw.
Bare ground wires connect to green screws.

I have a 300GAL Spa that was installed on a 120v 20amp two pole. I had a 240v 50amp breaker that I replced with two 120v 20amp breakers, we wired the tub and the pump works but when the heater is turned...


What is the amp rating for the tub? What voltage are you actually running the tub on, 120 or 240? Is the 120v 10amp two-pole then the switch rating since you mention a switch? If there is no amp rating on the control what is the wattage of the heater element and how much horsepower is the pump rated for?

In the end it seems likely you do not have high enough breaker ratings to carry the pump(s) and the heater at the same time. Depending on the electrical circuit wire size and the breakers and switches you may need to make some adjustments or replace some of the components but I'll/we'll need more details on your existing setup and the tubs electrical demand to help you further.

I have a Leviton Combination Switch and Tamper Resistant OIutlet. Switch is on top. 15A-120V AC/CA 15A-125V and want to install it. Not sure how to connect with wires from wall so that the on/off...


Do not break off fin.

FYI: Tamper resistant outlet must have prong in both outlet-holes before there is power.
This prevents child from sticking something into one outlet-hole and getting shocked.

You are installing combo switch and plug.
Device has dark screws (with break off fin), and 1 brass screw and 1 silver screw

Electricians don't guess, they test.
Let's test wires using ordinary tester.
Separate wires, turn on power.
Do not untwist wires that are twisted together.
Test each wire to bare ground wire. Tester lights up on hot wire.
Hot wire goes to dark screw.

Hot is identified.
Test Hot wire to all wires except bare ground wire, but including white wires that are twisted together,
Tester lights up on Neutral.
Connect neutral to silver screw.
If you do not have Neutral, then you do not have wires needed to connect outlet part of device.
Outlet can be powered using ground wire in silver screw, but this is not code and I am not recommending this action.

There is one wire left that does not light up when testing,
This is wire goes to load (lights, fan, motor) ... connect this wire to brass screw.

Also take advantage of fixya phone service.

NO 20amp 120v power


you probably tripped a circuit breaker. Carefully push in all the circuit breakers, I bet that one of them will give slightly and power will be restored.

Sometimes the 20amp outlet is also a GFI outlet. You may need to reset the outlet itself if so equipped.

20amp or 40amp


Well 20 amps at 120V is only 2400 Watts. So yes each recepticle can handle 20 Amps. For a total of 4800W Continuous. The head room Between that and 5500W is generally for starting motors and inrush currents.

No power to dishwasher?


few possibilities......DEAD-need new one, not connected properly or needs new circuit inside dishwasher. Have you been able to test the power source? Is there power coming from the outlet hard-wire? if si is it the full 120v? Dishwashers require a designated line with a 20amp breaker. Without adequate amp thru the breaker to the line it may not operate to it's fullest or turn on.

How do you wire a transfomer and relay together on a central air.(bryant)I took the wires of and now witch wire goes were.I going to change the two.HELP ME


This may be somewhat difficult depending on the year make and model. I will try to help without this knowledge.

There are 2 sides to the transformer. Read the label to see which is which. One side is labeled 24 volt and the other side is labeled 115 volt.

The 115v side will probably only have 2 wires. A white wire and a black wire. The white one will connect to the common or neutral system. If there is a circuit board it will plug on to the 120v Common terminal (probably marked L2). If the air handler does not have a circuit board, the white wire will connect to the other white common wires by a wire nut.

The Black (hot) 120v wire will connect to the 120v L1 terminal on the circuit board. If there is not a circuit board, read the schematics to find out where to wire nut the black 120v wire to. It will obviously be connected to a 120v incoming hot center after the blower door switch.

The 24volt wires will connect in a similar fashion to the circuit board. T1 will connect to the 24v hot terminal on the board. The T2 will connect to the 24v common terminal. If there is not a circuit board you will need to read the schematics very carefully before proceeding. It may be a good idea to add a 2amp fuseable link on the 24v T1 wire just in the case we are wrong.

The 24v hot wire may be wired in multiple ways without a circuit board. One way is to be wired to the Limit side of the Fan/Limit switch (located on back wall of the burner compartment just above the gas valve. Another way is wired to the gas valve. Please read the schematics located on the blower door. I hope this helps at least a little. Let me know please. Thanks.
