1988 Mitsubishi mighty max alternator wiring

most alternators are just 2 wires yellow/green usually go to the dash bulb to say alternator is working, thick red is direct to battery, some models have an extra earth, there are a few types of duel alternators that are designed to charge more than one battery, these have 2 bolt polls one standard size and another half the size this one is for the spare battery i.e battery for fridge etc. hope this helps. battery light on dash is usually spade connector.

How do i change control board of my ice machine become my father take off the control board

First do you have the new control board ? If not then you need to get with a supply house that sales Manitowoc parts. Now if you have a board or have bought one the here goes. Looking at left top corner of board there is a AC Line voltage electrical plug ( numbers marked on wires ) There is only one that will plug into it. Under that there is a main fuse (7A) then under that is a Automatic Cleaning system (AUCS) accessory plug you wont use it. Under that is the ice thickness probe (3/16 ) connection Marker 1C check water thickness probe and follow wire back to end and plug it to 1C. Now under that one is a spade marked 1F that is the Water level probe terminal go to water level switch in sump tray and find the wire that goes to it and put on 1F. Under water level spade is another spade marked 1G this on is not used on this model. At the left side bottom of board is another plug in this is the DC low voltage electrical plug the numbers are marked on the wires that plug into it there is only one plug that will plug into it.

I have an Atwood electronic ignition 6 gal. water heater. When I flip the switch to light, I can hear the ignitor sparking but there is no ignition. How can I isolate the problem?

Use a multimeter or test light for 12volt DC, and check at gas valve for 12 volts when it is trying to ignite (you here/see it sparking ). If no 12 volts to there, it will not ignite because no gas is flowing through valve. Try removing the connectors on the circuit board/module ( with switch in off position ) and cleaning the board contacts with a pencil eraser, and spray WD-40, or preferably an electrical spray/contact spray on connector contacts and retry. Board, or module may be located outside , or inside on top of tank, depending on what year and set-up. If that doesn't work, there is a small cut-out enclosed in plastic sleeve right near pressure relief valve area, that looks like a resistor that may be faulty. Remove it from the circuit and try it then. Simply pull the wire off at thermostat, pull that out of the sleeve by disconnecting it from the female spade connector, then put female spade where it used to be on thermostat terminal. If it works, buy a new thermal cut-off. If all that is done and tried, and still doesn't light, replace module.

Power cord comme unpluged from inside ac unit. has 2 spade and 1 green ground where do they go ?

Look for the terminals on the switch marked, "L1" and L2. this is where the two spade clips go. It really doesn't matter which one goes to L1 or L2 as long as you don't wire the green to either one. The green wire is the ground and should be screwed or clipped to the case of the unit.

Atwood water heater lights and goes off. i can hit the switch and will light and go off. it has spark ignition. lights fine but goes out in 2 sec.

Remove the wires at both ends of the thermal cut-off that is located in the little plastic sleeve below the pressure relief valve area and it's connected to spade connector on thermostat disc. Once removed, connect the female spade from wire to male spade on thermostat disc, and try to light now. If all's o.k. replace thermal cut-off as it is a safety feature to protect in case of flame up.
If not, get back to me.

My atwood 6 gal lp water heater starts fine then shuts itself off after about 1 minute. Sounds like a thermostate issue but where is that located on the electric model? Thanks. Ryan

Look to left of burner, below pressure relief valve, behind foam cover. Letters should be THERM on one and ECO on the other. Peel foam back and you'll see a little disc, with 2 male spade connectors. Don't mix up the one marked THERM, with ECO, they are different temperature settings. You might want to remove the thermal cut-out in the plastic tube and connect the wires direct (your basically going to by-pass it) and see if that cures it first. Just disconnect one end from Therm, and other from red wire, and put red wire (female spade) on male terminal at therm. I've seen them cause similar symptoms. If that cures it, buy a new thermal cut-off and install it as soon as you can, as it's a safety item in case of flame-up from burner, it shuts of power to gas valve etc, to eliminate fire.

My atwood water heater has spark and will light

If you see a little short round (cut-out)diode-like piece inside a clear plastic sleeve that runs from wiring to thermostat terminal,(usually right under pressure relief valve) remove it from the thermostat terminal, as well as wiring from heater (take it right out of the circuit) and connect that wire directly to the spade connector where it was attached at thermostat, and now try it. They are a one shot cut-out, and if it went, no power gets to the system and by removing it, you will see if it's the problem or not. They are a safety device that if for some reason you get too large of a flame from water heater, and it feels the flame/heat, it blows and cuts off power. Should be replaced when you get a chance, but at least you'll know what the problem is. Let me know if that works please.

Attwood water heater will only light for 30 seconds and goes out

Can you give me your model number off the sticker under outside cover?
Need to know as this will tell me if Manual ignition, or automatic spark, and if just gas operation, or electric element as well.
One thing you may want to try, if it has electronic ignition, is to remove the thermal cut-off diode from the circuit temporarily. It's the little diode inside the clear plastic tube, that is connected to your incoming power wire, and connects to thermostat. Simply remove it from the spade connector at the thermostat, and pull it apart at spade connector from incoming power wire, and connect incoming power wire to spade connector on thermostat. If you try to light it now, and all works good, the diode is faulty, and should be replaced.

Maytag Neptune Part Change?

I haven’t had to change the water inlet valve but is this the valve assembly you purchased?
It looks like they throw in an install instruction sheet at this parts supplier site. If you have this do they speak to adapting the wiring harness to the H/C valve assembly. I’m sure you are not lucky enough to have male spade connections on you replacement inlet valve. If they are spade lugs this would be a piece of cake to interface too. Looks like a molded connector on the inlet valve to terminate the 120VAC power to the valve assembly.
I called the supplier above and if your machine starts with serial number 18 or above you need to purchase an upper LED wiring harness p/n 1185286 $55 to interface to the replacement H/C valve you purchased. Or you can purchase p/n 1404313 wiring info for $7.50 for the DIY’er. I know this is a bit frustrating. I don’t have the valve in hand so I can’t offer a quick solution. I’m willing to bet the wiring harness they are selling for $55 is nothing more than a cable with proper female/male mating connector transitions to interface to the factory 120VAC connections to the inlet valve. If my water inlet valve fails I would be in the same boat as you but I would make up an interface cable before spending $55. Maybe a more knowledgeable forum member can offer a better solution. Good luck to you.

Hotpoint wd62 washer dryier (aquarius 1200)

i am a retired engineer of 20 years, and its about a year since i worked on combination washer/dryers but if the heater elements fine and power comes from timer there must be cut out somewhere around where it should warm up, look all round the machine one may be hidden or hard to spot there maybe about 3 one of them one of them could be a trigger device (you can press a button to reset it) that style is a very small cube about the size of a sugar lump with2 spades on it, others look like a small flat oval or round shape the size of a five pence piece with 2 spade wires on them, remove the plug from wall and remove these spades and check the contacts for continuity, you need not remove from machine to do so, no circuit + no heat, replacement item not expensive, thats where to start based on the information given, check the sensors you mention again, it sounds like your so close, good luck and work safe
