Can not send outgoing faxes on brother mfc-8220.


There are a number of reasons why you may not be able to send a fax. Check your manual for troubleshooting tips. However here are some simple things to try.
1. Check to make sure the cord from the outlet in the wall to your all-in-one is plugged into the proper port. There are usually two ports that will accept your phone plugs on the back of machine. One goes to your phone or answering machine and the other one to the line that goes the outlet in the wall. It's easy to plug your cord into the wrong port. Try plugging your phone cord into the other port and see that works.
2. You may have a defective phone cord or the wrong type of cord. Most phone cords only have two conductors in the cord and others have four. Try replacing the phone cord with a known good phone cord and see if that helps.

We have s maytag mdet336aym. The power cord plug does not fit our wall outlet. A person at Lowe's said we could use our old one. It has four wires: green, white, black and red from a whirlpool maybe 15...


As I understand you, you have a 4-wire receptacle in the wall and have just acquired a used dryer, that has an older, 3-wire cord attached. You need to change the dryer cord to connect to the existing 4-wire receptacle in the wall. (Dryers sold new, retail do not come with a cord attached so I assume that this must be a used dryer with an existing cord).

If this dryer has a 3-wire cord attached, it MUST be replaced with a newer 4-wire cord, per the National Electrical Code, as you have a 4-wire receptacle. (However I see no reason that you could not use your existing 4-wire cord from your soon-to-be-replaced dryer, if it's still in good shape).

In older dryers, wired with an existing 3-wire cord, there is usually a metal link provided between the center lug (the neutral lug) and a ground connection on the metal chassis. If it's present, this link MUST BE REMOVED WHEN CONNECTING A 4-WIRE CORD. This is very, very, very important.
The reason is, under a fault condition, current could be carried by the neutral conductor (in a 220-volt circuit, the white wire carries the neutral or unbalanced current. There is no neutral in a 120-volt circuit, even though some people think there is).
The presence of this current can be shunted onto the metal frame of the dryer, making it hot to earth ground (until the circuit breaker pops) and providing a possible shock hazard to a person touching the dryer). Removing this link, removes this potential hazard.

When wiring a 4-wire cord, the white wire in connected to the center lug, the two black conductors (could be a black and a red) are connected to either of the lugs on either side of the center lug, and the green conductor is connected to the metal cabinet. (Once you have the metal junction box cover removed from the dryer, you will see a screw driven into the metal cabinet provided to connect the green wire).

Again, when using a 4-wire cord, there must be no connection between the metal cabinet and the neutral connection through the use of a metal link. It must be removed and discarded.

How do you hook the four wire electric cable to the terminal marked L1, L2, L3? the wires are colored red, white, black and green.



5f73f71.jpg
To connect power cord:
• Remove the screws from the cover of the
junction box located at the top rear of the dryer.
• Loosen/remove the two screws on the strain
relief clamp and remove from 4-wire supply
cord.
• The strain relief splits into two indentical parts.
• Insert the large flange of both sections into the
hole located on the left side of the junction box
housing. The short flange of both sections and
screws must remain positioned on the external
side of the junction box housing.
• Insert the 4- wire supply cord through both
sections of the strain relief and re-install strain
relief screws, do not fully tighten until electrical
connections are complete.
• Attach the power cord ground conductor (green
wire) to the ground terminal marked with the
ground symbol. Tighten screw until ground
conductor is secure. (See Fig. 7)
• Attach the power cord neutral conductor (white
wire) to the neutral terminal. (marked N)
Tighten screw until neutral conductor is secure.
(See Fig. 7)
• Attach the power cord phase conductor (black
wire) to the phase terminal (marked L3).
Tighten screw until power conductor is secure.
(See Fig. 7)
• Attach the power cord phase conductor (red
wire) to the phase terminal (marked L1).
Tighten screw until power conductor is
secure.(See Fig. 7)
• Tighten the screws on the strain relief so that
the power cord cannot be moved.
• Re-install the cover of the junction box and
secure with four screws removed earlier.
• The dryer is now ready to be connected to the
power supply receptacle.

This is from the manual for the Danby DCD5505W. You did not give the model # so I went off of what you listed it under.

I have a 4 prong dryer but the plug in the wall is a three prong, ibought a four prong plug and i dont know how to connect a three wire into a four prong plug please help me.. hugo


Do NOT try and change the receptacle please. It is dangerous and we do not want anyone getting hurt. In your case, it would be better to put a 3 prong cord on the dryer. Overall you could call an electrician to install the 4 prong receptacle, which will require new 4 conductor wire as well and run to the breaker box. Get a flat style 3 prong dryer cord and we'll tell you how to install it. Unless you call an electrician. ;-) If this helps you, please rate my answer. Thank you.

Grill problems


I would advise not to use the grill or the plug it plugs into before determining what the problem is. It could be the grill cord, or the wall plug.

If you have been in the habit of pulling the cord plug out of the wall by tugging on the cord, then chances are the problem is broken conductors inside of the wire insulation. One way to test this is to attempt plugging the unit into a totally different wall outlet. If the cord and outlet heat up again, chances are the cord needs to be replaced (if possible). If the both do not heat up, then the outlet wiring connections inside of the wall need to be checked.

Bad wiring connections either in the wall, or in the cord, will generate heat, when will then conduct to the other connector. So it is difficult to use heat as the indicator of which connector is bad.

Conect 4 wires to 3 wires box in the wall


These two pictures illustrate the power wiring on a the terminal of an electric dryer. The one to the left here is the old-style three-wire configuration. Most people have this type in their homes. New code changes, though, require that dryers now have a four-wire cord, shown to the right. These are just just thumbnail pictures that you can click for a larger view. But I'll bet you already figured that out, didn't you?
Besides the number of wires in each cord, there are two important things to notice. First, in the four-wire configuration, notice that the dryer's grounding strap is folded back on itself. The whole point of the four-wire cord is to separate the ground from the neutral. The green wire (the "new" extra wire in the four-wire cord) is attached to the dryer cabinet. In the three-wire configuration, the grounding strap is left intact and the neutral and ground are tied together.
tn_3prong_dryer_outlet.jpgtn_4prong_dryer_outlet.jpgIf you need to re-wire the outlet, these pictures will explain the anatomy of the three-prong (left) and four-prong (right) outlets. Once again, these pictures are just thumbnails--click 'em for a larger view.

Sure hope this helps you find a resolution to your delimma! Best wishes.

I need a wiring diagram to wire my oven to the house power. Whirlpool electric model# rb260pxyb


You will have 3 or possibly 4 wires coming out of the oven Red and Black go to the hot leads in the junction box.Usually red & black but could be 2 black. White goes to white Bare/green go to the white if no Bare/Green available. This is for a wall oven. If the stove is free standing and you want to attach a cord. Just buy the cord that matches the outlet in your house. Make sure it is a range cord and not a dryer cord. They are very similar. If a 3 conductor cord (most common) outer two terminals are the hot ones. There is a wire or metal strap between the frame of the range and the center (neutral )terminal . On a 3 conductor cord leave this connected. On a 4 conductor cord remove this wire and connect it to the green/bare wire in the cord. There may be a vacant terminal on the block for this purpose. If not use a wire nut.
