Identify the prongs. If you have wired a 110-volt fixture or plug, then you are aware that the different prongs connect to different colors of wires. The same principle holds true for 220-volt plugs, and this is very important to keep from tripping the circuit breaker. A three-prong plug will connect to two colored wires that each supply 110 volts and a bare copper wire which is the ground. One of these colored wires will be black, while the other one should be red, white, or blue. The four-prong plugs connect to a black and a red wire that each supply 110 volts, a white neutral wire, and a bare copper ground wire.
Before you change wiring check and see if its a proper cord for a 220 hook up. most three prong are for a 110 hook up. Ask an electrician for advice so you don't have a fire or kill yourself. Most Dryers are 220
Speaking of these United States, here's how that goes. In this country, dryers are called 220, but they are really 110 twice! So, on the back of the dryer is a plug with 3 or 4 prongs. ( hope you can get this from my description. ) On a 3 prong plug, the two "slanted" prongs are each hooked to 110 volt p service. The "L" shaped prong is a ground.
If you have a 4 pronged plug, the two flat straight prongs are 110 volt each, and the "L" shaped and the round prong are both grounded.
FYI: Each of the 110 volt wires has a different function. One powers the motor, the other the heating element. Be Blessed.
yes they are the same type of cords as for the specs that is statting what the internal power converter can safely use to power the devices in the appropriate modes to change the mode you need to pen the pannel and change the seitch position, the factory default is 110-117V AC, if by chance that it is set to the higher settings the only sighn would be that the fuse will keep blowing on the device or it will cut in and out.
it sounds as if your plug configuration is for 220 volts. that means that all wires are needed to operate the unit. white is the common and red and black are both power leads. in other words...the red lead provides 110 volts and the black provides 110 volts, and the white is the common for both circuits. and of course the ground is for curcuit safety
to change to a three prong plug the ground must be sacrificed but with shock risk. i suggest a seperate ground wire run to an adequate ground.
a typical three prong plug will mean that the two prongs closest to the edges are the two power leads and will use the red wire on one and black wire on the other.(doesn't matter which one goes on which prong)
the white will go to the center or usually odd shaped prong. be sure and be safe!

They wire in the same except the green wire will go to a ground screw which should be right in the same area with a green color to it. If no ground screw, hook the green together with the white (center) wire. Hope this helps!
