You don't really have a 3 phase dryer, do you? The 3 prong plugs have 2 lines (opposite legs of a single phase) and a neutral. A 3 phase circuit breaker or disconnect switch will interrupt all 3 lines at once.

    OK. What you need is a 3-pole RCD as the ELCB are not specified for most all purposes any more. These can be bought to fit in panels or as part of a branch box or outlet box. Wiring said protection devices between mains line and intended load quickly becomes an exercise in electrical engineering to both meet the purpose of the device and to not violate any electrical codes. Good luck.

I have a 5 speed transmission and my clutch neutral safety switch is going out. can I bypass this switch


well to clear things up, its not a "neutral safety switch", manual vehicles have a clutch safety switch!
And yes you can bypass it, follow the clutch pedal up behind the dash, you'll find the switch. pull the plug and "short" the two connections(of the plug) with a piece of wire.

What makes you say it is "going" bad? Just curious, normally it'll just stop working!

My adp8540 has stopped working because my sister opened midcycle. Now it trips the circuit safety switch and if it does do anything else it blinks 6 times. Can it be fixed or do I jut need a new one?


Please remove off the main power supply and keep aside while pressing off the panel control. If the trip works, check if the motor is struck , release with manual action. Also check the motor, remove connection and see if the trip has changed. Also if there is any leak on the machine if the trip switch is a ELCB , which can trip with a ground/earth leak. If so check the outlet ground or use another plug point.

Need location of neutral safty switch on my 1990 cadilac broughm 350 engin e


The neutral safety switch is located on the top and toward the base of the steering column almost to the floorboard.

To remove or install the neutral safety switch be sure to place the shifter in the neutral position, then dis-connect the wire connector at the neutral safety switch, then remove the securing screws and then remove the neutral safety switch.

Install the new neutral safety switch and do not over-tighten the securing screws, then remove the alignment pin and re-connect the wire connector to the neutral safety switch. (be sure not to remove the alignment pin until the neutral safety switch has been installed)

Check to be certain that the vehicle only starts in "Park" or "Neutral". Here is an image to help assist you, and let me know if you require any further assistance.

Bronco wont start 88 ford bronco just replaced tranny and now won't start. i've hooked everything back up but one of the wires to the transfer case bc i broke the plug in. any ideas why it wont start...


The neutral safety switch is located on the side of the transmission and it is usually attached behind the shifter linkage and it is secured with two small bolts that can be loosened up to allow for adjustment of the neutral safety switch.

To adjust the neutral safety switch place the transmission into neutral, (block the tires) there is a notch or and indent marker on the housing of the neutral safety switch that should be lined up with a line on the face of the collar that is around the shifter detent shaft, and if they are not in alignment then loosen the two bolts that secure the neutral safety switch and then turn the neutral safety switch until they are aligned and then tighten the securing bolts to the neutral safety switch, and then test the starter. If the starter fails to engage then either the neutral safety switch is faulty, the neutral safety switch has been by-passed all this time and the by-pass (I will usually find things like a paper clip shoved into the vehicles wire connector with electrical tape around it) has fallen out of the wire connector from the vehicle wiring harness, or the battery just went dead. if you have the neutral safety switch from the old transmission still available try using it to test the neutral safety circuit. I have provided you with an image to help assist you adjust the neutral safety switch.
