I have a FEQ1442es dryer. I need to change it from a 4 pronged plug to a three prong, as that is what outlet my condo has... Is there any special order etc. in which to attatch the connections on the...


The 4-prong plug has red, black, white, and green/yellow wires while the 3-prong plug has red, black, and white wires. The only difference is the green/yellow (ground) wire of the 4-prong plug which is attached to the dryer cabinet. All you have to do is connect the wires of the 3-prong plug in the same way the same wire colors are connected with the 4-prong plug then connect the terminal on the cabinet, where the green/yellow (ground) wire of the 4-prong plug is formerly connected, to the white wire of the 3-prong plug.

My dryer's power cord has 4 prongs, my wall socket has 3 holes, can I change the power cord, or is there an adapter to change from 4 to 3 pronges.


Un screw the 2 hex screws from the back of the dryer where the cord goes in.

There will be 3 screws that connect the cord to the dryer, loosen or remove them to remove the 4 prong cord.

A hardware store will carry the 3 prong cord you need, tell them it is for a dryer.

Re-connect the 3 prong cord to the dryer.

Plug in and test after you have installed the new cord.

Change a 3 prong plug to 4 prong


Is it an electric dryer or gas dryer? If it's a 120 volt gas dryer, then no, you need to keep it on a 3 prong cord. If it's an electric dryer, then yes it is possible to install a four prong plug onto it. Although it isn't recommended.
The main thing you need to know is which wire is ground. From the machine, it should be the green wire. On the plug, there should be on prong that is slightly longer than the other 3. The ground has to be the first one in the wall receptacle and the last one out. So the slightly longer one is where the green ground wire needs to be wired in. The other two wires are both power so it doesn't really matter which prong you wire those wires at.
Once again I'll remind you that it isn't recommended to convert 3 to 4 prongs like that. Just be careful and make sure you aren't touching any live wires.

Replaced a 4 prong plug with a 3 on a Gallery


the reason for the four prongs is the same reason most electric ranges have them it is higher amperage and it is a heavier duty machine I suggest you put original plug back on and purchase the proper wiring and receptacle for it as well before you have a fire I strongly suggest you contact an electrician

I was wondering why the econo-heat plug does not have a 3 prong plug and oly has a 2 prong plug?


Looking at the picture, it has a plastic housing. Without going into a long, drawn out discussion, as long as it is sold for non-commercial use, it is allowed to have a two-prong polarized plug. With the polarized plug, the neutral wire (assuming the house is properly wired) is at the same electrical potential as a ground wire would be, and thus, there is no need for a separate ground.

If you open up a breaker box (literally pull off the front cover), you would find the neutral wires and ground wires are terminated on the same copper bar. ( I don't advise you remove the cover to your breaker box, as this will expose you to voltages of 240 volts. This is something only professionals or fools should do. )

I have a kenmore dryer model 11060212990, and the plug has three prongs, but the wall socket is a four prong. what do i need to do?


You will need to purchase a 4-prong power cord and convert the appliance to meet the needs of the wall receptacle. This is a requirement of the National Electric Code in homes that have the 4-prong receptacle. The following link explains how to convert your dryer cord from a 3-prong to a 4-prong:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r793520-3_prong_4_prong_power_cord_conversion

These rules apply to the conversion of electric ranges, as well. Read through the link thoroughly and let me know if you have questions. If you require additional assistance, please let me know before you rate the solution. I hope this helps you.
