Connect the three-prong wire you have the way the same wires (Line 1, Neutral, and Line 2) of the four-prong wires are connected to the terminal block then connect the integrated grounding strap to the Neutral (center) terminal.

How do i connect the wires on my GE dryer from a 3 prong to a 4 prong withour the gterminal block? My terminal block is missing.


The following link explains how to properly convert a 3-prong power cord to a 4-prong:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3575913-installing_a_220_vac_appliance_cord

The main difference is how the Neutral and Ground wires are terminated. In a 4-wire configuration, the Ground and Neutral are INDEPENDENT of each and are NOT terminated together.

Match the correcsponding wire colors at the terminal block and make sure the grounding strap (if installed)on the Neutral (White) terminal is removed. The ground wire will be connected separately to a ground lug on the equipment cabinet.

NOTE: If the wires are not color coded, the outer two wires (left and right) are the HOT leads. The center conductor is Neutral.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

If you are connecting a power cord with a 3-wire configuration, you match the corresponding wire colors from the power cord to the wires on the terminal block in the back of the dryer. The correct color-code is as follows:

RED - HOT (120VAC)
BLACK - HOT (120VAC)
WHITE - NEUTRAL (0VAC)*

*There should be a ground strap or ground wire connected to neutral at the terminal block in a 3-wire configuration.

NOTE: If the wires are not color-coded, the outer two wires (Left and Right) are the HOT leads. The center conductor is Neutral.

If you have any questions, you can refer to this link for further explanation:

This explains the difference in 4-wire and 3-wire configurations. I hope this helps you.

Changing 220 plugs need discription of positive and negitive to dryer


If you are installing a 3 prong cord , then the 2 outer wires , are the power lines , and the center is the neutral . On the dryer , the center wire connects to the white wire on the terminal block . The 2 outer cord wires . 1 connects to the black wire terminal on the block ( outside terminal ) , and the other outside wire , connects to the red ( outside terminal ) on the block . Its the same if you are installing a 4 wire cord , except the green , connects to the ground screw on the dryer itself .

Connecting 4-wire cord to GE profile dryer


The following link explains how to properly install a 4-wire power cord to your appliance:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r793520-3_prong_4_prong_power_cord_conversion

The main difference between a 3-wire and 4-wire configuration is how the ground and neutral wires are terminated.

In a 3-wire configuration the wires are terminated together at the terminal block via a ground strap.

In a 4-wire configuration the two wires are independent of one another. Match the corresponding colored wires at the terminal block and attach the ground wire to the ground lug on the equipment cabinet.

I hope this explains it well enough for you. If you still have questions, please let me know.

Change 4 plug out and put in 3 prong plugs it runs but no heat


The main difference between the 4-prong and 3-prong configuration is how the ground and neutral wires are connected at the terminal block.

The color codes are as follows:

RED - HOT (120 VAC)
BLACK - HOT (120 VAC)
WHITE - NEUTRAL (0 VAC)
GREEN - GROUND

You simply match the corresponding colors with the wires present at the terminal block on the back of the dryer. In a 3-wire configuration, however, neutral and ground are connected together. This is done by connecting the ground wire from the equipment cabinet to the neutral wire at the terminal block.

In a 4-wire configuration these two wires are INDEPENDENT of each other and are not connected.

Please note that in homes built after the year 2000 it is REQUIRED to have a 4-wire configuration to be within the National Electrical Code.

If the wires at the terminal block are not color coded, Red and Black will be connected to the outer two terminals (left and right) of the terminal block, while neutral will be connected to the center terminal.

If you need more guidance, the following link explains:

The following link explains how to correctly install a power cord to the terminal block of a dryer:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r793520-3_prong_4_prong_power_cord_conversion

Take note of the difference between a 4-wire and 3-wire configuration. The color codes for both installations are as follows:

RED - HOT (120 VAC)
BLACK - HOT (120 VAC)
WHITE - NEUTRAL (0 VAC)
GREEN - Ground

The main difference between the two configurations is how the Neutral wire and Ground wire is installed.

In a 3-wire configuration ground and neutral are connected together at the terminal block.

In a 4-wire configuration ground and neutral are INDEPENDENT of each other. Neutral is terminated at the terminal block, while ground is terminated on a ground lug on the equipment cabinet.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

4 wire power cord connection


The difference between a 3 and 4 wire cord is the 4 wire cord separates the ground and neutral, where the 3 wire grounds through the neutral. The 4 wire cord gives an extra safety against electric shock. The red and black wires on the cord go to the red and black wires on the terminal block. Then you have to determine where the green wire on the dryer goes, if it has one. Some dryers have the green wire spliced into the white wire maybe 6 inches from the terminal block. If this is the case you will hook both the green and white wires on the dryer to the nuetral (middle) terminal with just the white wire on your cord. Some dryers have a ground strap, a flat narrow peice of metal that goes from the neutral of the terminal block to the cabinet just below it. If this is the case then remove the screw securing it to the cabinet and bend it back up onto the nuetral terminal, or remove it completely. Then hook the green ground wire from the cord to the cabinet of the dryer. Make sure all of your connections are tight, but be careful not to strip them. It's also important to hook up the strain relief to prevent any possible tugs on the cord from pulling on the terminal block connections.

Terminal Block installation for Tappan Dryer


To connect your dryer you must place the black and red wires one on the left and one on the right terminals.
The white wire is called the neutral and needs to be connected to the middle terminal.
The ground (green or bare white) needs to be connected to the ground terminal or lug which will be away from the other three wire terminals.
BE SURE TO TURN OFF THE POWER.
The wires coming from the dryer go to the hot wires inside the machine.
If you trace them by removing the covers, you will see the two hot wires that connect to the black and red wires from your power source, go to hot terminals in the dryer.
Does not matter which one goes to black and which goes to red.
They should be the outside two on the terminal block.
The neutral (white wire from the power source) goes to ground (chassis) inside of the machine.
