The lighter wires from the transformer, black attaches to terminal 4, (this will have many other wires attached, and can be more than one terminal labeled #4) The red from transformer attaches to #3, it will be the only wire on a #3 terminal.
The heavier red wire most likely goes thru the back wall to the brushes, and attaches to a #4 terminal also. They have used different heat controls over the years, so this diagram may not exactly match your machine, the the terminal numbers are consistant.

I am changing a dimmer switch to just a light switch. It has a black a red wire, which ones do i have to connect to the switch?

Hi Kerri,

First, be sure the power is off at the circuit breaker. If I understand you correctly, the dimmer switch has 2 wires. Some have 4 wires.
Connect the black wire to the black incoming wire using a wire nut. Twist the stranded wire tightly and tighten the wire nut as tight as you can get it. Attach the red wire to the white incoming wire the same way. Be sure the gold ground wire is attached to something. Either it will be connected with other gold wires or it will be grounded to the box if the box is metal.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a vote or comment. Thanks,

Cannot get the decora 4 way light switch to work - 2 of the 3 switches work but cannot get the 3rd to work. Replacing regular toggle switches which all worked but wiring different for decora switches.

Decora 3-way and 4-way switches do not wire differently than toggle-type switches.
Instructions below are tedious but will accurately guide you to solution.

Let's break down the problem starting with 3-ways.

1) Start with 3-way switches:
Old 3-way switch has 2 brass screws and 1 dark screw
New decora has same color screws.
Wire that went to dark screw on old device must attach to dark screw on decora device.
Other two wires can attach to either brass screw.
Wires that attach to brass screws are travelers ... these wires travel to the 4-way switch.
So there are 2 traveler wires at each 3-way switch.

2) Let's test if 3-way switches are wired correctly by taking 4-way switch out of equation.
We will resolve problem with 4-way switch after 3-ways are correct.

There are 4 wires at the 4-way switch.
These are the 2 traveler wires that arrive from each 3-way switch.

At the 4-way switch, 2 wires arrive in one cable, and 2 wires arrive from another cable.
To say it differently, there are 2 wires from cable1 and 2 wires from cable2.
Connect 1 wire from cable1 to 1 wire from cable2 with a wire nut
Now connect the 2nd wire from cable1 to 2nd wire from cable2 with another wire nut.
So now the traveler wires are connected, and the 4 way switch is out of equation.
Turn on power, and click 3-way switches to see if both switches turn lights on-off in all positions.

Do your 3-way switches work correctly?

3) If 3-ways are not correct, then you have wrong wire connected to dark screw.
First thing to check is if you can identify traveler wire colors by looking at wires at 4-way switch.
Remember, traveler wires at 4-way switch go back to 3-way switch and connect to brass screws on 3-way switch.

4) If you cannot tell traveler wires by looking at 4-way switch, then you can try different combinations until both 3-way switches work.
Or you can test: disconnect wires from one of the 3-way switches. Separate 3 wires for testing. Move other 3-way switch to down position. Turn on power. Test each wire to bare ground wire. Mark wire that lights up. Now move other 3-way to up position. Test each wire to bare ground wire. If same wire lights up each test, then that wire goes to dark screw. If different wire lights up, then mark that wire. The two marked wires are travelers, and they connect to brass screws. Other wire connects to dark screw. Repeat identical test for other 3-way switch.

At this point your 3-way switches will work, if light bubs are not burned out.

5) Last step, the 4 way switch.
Remember from step above, that 2 wires arrive in cable1: These 2 wires connect on one side of 4-way switch. The other 2 wires that arrive in cable2 connect of other side of 4-way switch.

I'm trying to convert my ignition switch to a push button start on a 1985 ramcharger, and can't figure out which wires activate the dash board interior.

here is a step by step guide to assist you. This should definitely work on your vehicle 1 Disconnect your battery. Electricity, even from a 12-volt battery, can cause injuries and sparks can create fires. This is not a project you want to work on while the power is hooked up. 2 Decide on the placement of your new push-button starter switch. Good locations include under the dashboard, in the center console or even in the glove compartment. This is really a matter of personal taste and convenience. If you are just using the push button switch as a temporary fix, you don't have to actually install it. Just wrap the electrical connections in electrician's tape and lay it on top of the dashboard after everything is connected. 3 Using your wrenches or sockets, remove the nut from the positive side stud of your starter solenoid and put it in a safe place where it won't get lost. 4 Using the crimping tool, remove the insulation from about 1/4-inch of the wire and attach an eyelet connector that is of appropriate size to fit over the positive side stud of your solenoid. Crimp the connector onto the wire firmly and then slide the eyelet over the positive side stud of the solenoid and reattach the nut. 5 Run your wire into the pasenger compartment of the car, being careful to route it in such a way that it will not come into contact with hot engine components or sharp edges that might damage the wire. Once you are in the passenger compartment and have enough wire to reach your switch's' installation location, allow an extra 3 to 4 inches and clip the wire. Strip the insulation from the end of the wire and install a crimp connector of the appropriate size to fit on one side of your push-button switch. 6 Remove the screw from the back of the push-button switch and attach the connector to the switch. 7 Strip the insulation from the last 1/4-inch of the remaining wire and connect a crimp connector it. Remove the screw from the other side of the push=button switch and attach the connector to the switch. 8 Route this wire to the positive side of the battery. As with the last wire, be very careful to avoid engine components that may damage the wire. 9 Reconnect the negative side of your battery. 10 Reconnect the positive side of your battery with the new wire placed into position where it will get a good electrical connection 11 Try it out. You will still need your key to unlock the steering wheel and send power to your fuel pump and accessories. Turn the key to the on position and press the starter button to start the engine.
if you need further assistance please feel free to let me know and i will be glad to assist you further. Thanks, Midwest-tek

Wiring diagram for 4 way switches

A four way switch has four or five screws on it depending on its manufacturing date. Usually, 2 black, 2 gold, (and one green if the switch was manufactured after 2003). There should be four hot conductors usually 2 black and 2 red that attach to the device (and one bare ground after 2003). Attach one black and one red that come from the same cable (look into the back of the box to determine which black and red go together) to the black set of screws. Then attach the other black and red from the second cable into the gold set of screws.
Many people make the mistake of thinking that both the black wires go onto the black screws and the red wires go onto the gold screws. This is incorrect and will only allow power to pass through when the switch is in one of the two positions.

In replacing push button switch INDAK 681064-01N I forgot to record the wiring sequence, please help

If you look at the switch with the pushbutton on the top, the white wire from the cord to the motor attaches to the upper left terminal, the red wire from the cord to the motor attaches to the lower left terminal (just below where the white wire attaches), the black wire from the cord to the motor attaches to the upper right terminal and the short black wire going to one of the two pins that plug into the extension cord attaches to the lower right terminal (just below the where the black wire to the motor cord attaches).

Hi there, we have replaced dual infinite switch on our jennair range and cannot figure out the correct wiring for the new 12002125 switch....can you help...???

Follow the instructions below from partselect:

Attach the black wire(s) from the old switch (terminal 2) to the new switch terminal P1. Also attach the jumper cable to P1 and "jump" it to S1.

Attach the orange wire (old switch terminal 5) to S2
Attach the yellow wire (old switch terminal 4) to 4a
Attach the tan/(white?) wire (old switch terminal 3) to terminal 4 on the new switch
Attach the single red wire from the right front element to terminal 2 on the new switch.
Attach the 'compound' red wires (the ones that come from the left rear/outlet connection and is also attached to the right rear switch) to terminal P2 on the new switch.
There is no need to separate the compound red wires.


Best regards.

Power Switch

This is not that hard:
1. - remove gasket (it is glued so you may end up damaging it)
2. - remove 4 screws holding baffle
3. - under it you will see 4 more screws holding cap
4. - Four more screws and you will remove cap cover
5. - cut the cable tie, make a note how wires are connected, use flat screw driver to press on the latches holding the switch in while pushing onto the switch OUT. Tension will not let the latches pop back in.

6. - reassemble in the reverse order.
Switch - if you have old style switch installed you will need to push something into each hole next to the wires to release them. There is a cooper lip in each hole that you have to bend a bit to release each wire. Installing new style switch (with 4 wires) - attach one power cord wire to one blue switch wire and another to another blue switch wire. Attach one motor and one power nozzle cord receptacle wire to one black and another pair to another black wire.
Gasket - use weatherstripping glue to glue motor gasket back (you can get some in almost any automotive store)

No diagrams - sorry. It is Rexair, Inc. intellectual property and we can not use them...

Good Luck
