Question about Electrical Supplies
There is just too much resistance in that cord. Get a 12 gage extension cord. And yes I think you burned out the generator due to severely overloading it.

The following link explains how to convert a 3-prong appliance cord to a 4-prong and vice-versa:
If you still have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

four prong sould be installed as followed, black and red go to eitehr ends( amkes no difference which, white goes to middle and the green wire gets screwed directly to the dryer cabinet itself( usually an existing green screw just outside the connectin box. if there no power after that then check to be sure oyou indded have 220v going to the outlet

SOURCE: Elkectric dryer won't start
to put it kindly depending on way you connected wires unit could be damaged,replace pigtail with three wire and outlet to original.outlet wires should be black,red and white. turn breaker off attach white to middle and red,black to sides,"either side is fine".Attach dryer pigtail in same manner with white on white and if plug in and turn breaker on.If there is no operation at this point dryer possibly damaged from previous wiring.Just remember be safe when working with electrical and ask before trying to change things that aren't the same.

You can if you want to, but it's not generally necessary. Here's a picture of a 3 prong configuration with a ground strap...
That green wire with the yellow stripe is a ground and it is most definitely connected to the cabinet somewhere. So it will serve as the ground strap (in the above picture).
Here's the thing... say you were going from a 3 prong to a 4 prong. That is, the dryer was originally "designed" for a 3 prong. This means you'd have to "retrofit" it a bit. Take a look at this pic... ( I made this for someone else, so please disregard my somewhat hostile remarks, OK?)
The ground strap has been removed and has been replaced by the ground to the frame. Yours probably does NOT have a ground strap, though... yours uses that Green/Yellow wire for frame ground.
All of that to say this. Don't lose sleep over it. Ya done good.

Hi, yes that is the correct cord all right. If you'll notice the new cord has 2 hot (red & black) a neutral (white) and ground/earth (green) wires. In case you are not sure how to connect I've attached a photo which shows the correct way. If my attachment didn't work, check out you-tube and type in "4 wire dryer hook up". Thanks for visiting "fixya" and good luck macmarkus :) IMG_3336.JPG
