I have brought a double wall light with pull cord and need help in wiring it.

The new double wall light is to replace an existing double wall light with pull cord. There are two lights on the wall plate with a white and a black wire from each light making two white and two black wires and there are two black wires coming from the pull cord. The problem is what wires go where?

Black to black is the connections
if you have black in and black out of the switch then a black to black in the lights completes the circuit as the switch breaks the black circuit when turned off white wires all joined is the return for the power

Raccoon ate ate my sensor wires. Can I override them so I can use my remotes?


The safest thing to do is fix them. It really isn't hard, I have done it myself. The wires are small and you can buy move at hardware store or radio shack. When you get them repaired, spray them with ammonia.. raccoons do not like that. This is from the Internet: Low-Voltage Circuits 1 Raise the garage door using the control button on the garage wall or the remote control unit from a vehicle. Inspect each sensor to make sure the green or red power-indicator lights are illuminated. Proceed to the next step if one or both lights are not illuminated.
2 Stand a stepladder at the area of the garage door opener unit. Unplug the power cord from the outlet at the ceiling. Remove the cover at the back of the unit. Identify the connection terminals where the ends of the low-voltage senor wires attach. Reattach a loose wire to the appropriate terminal. Tighten the terminal screw with a small screwdriver. Plug in the power cord and observe the lights on the sensors. If both lights are not illuminated, proceed to the next step.
3 Inspect the double-strand insulated low-voltage wires from each sensor to the back of the garage door opener. Use the stepladder to inspect the wires near the upper part of a wall and at the ceiling. If no damage is noted, one or both sensors must be replaced. Proceed to the following steps if any wires are bare, burned or broken in one or more places.
4 Loosen the terminal screws that connect the faulty wires at the back of the overhead unit. Start at the ceiling and pull the wires out of the insulated fasteners at the ceiling, walls and along the side of the door opening to the sensor. Disconnect the ends of the wires from the terminals on the sensor.
5 Determine the length of a replacement wire using the faulty wire. Cut a piece of new double-strand insulated low-voltage wire to length with electrical pliers. Strip 1/2 inch of insulation off the both strands at one end. Attach the ends to the appropriate terminals on the sensor.
6 Start just above the sensor. Feed the opposite end of the wire through the fasteners at the side of the door, the wall and the ceiling. Strip the ends of the wires as before. Connect the wires to the appropriate terminals and tighten the screws. Plug in the power cord to the opener unit.

How to wire in an on-off switch for ceiling light from power source going to living room.


Pretty easy if you can get the wires from the existing wall outlet. Just run a wire from existing outlet to the where you want the new light. Install inside an approved ceiling electrical outlet box and then run another wire to where you want the switch or switches. If you go to home depot or the library you can look at the books with diagrams on how to wire it. You can skip the wall switch if you use a light with a pull chain.

How to wire this fan


The wiring on most paddle / ceiling fans id such:

White = Fan and Light neutral or "common"
Black = Fan line voltage or "hot"
Blue = Light line voltage or "hot"
Green = safety ground

If you are replacing an existing light fixture - be sure to replace the ceiling box with one designed for use with a fan - as per electrical code. If the existing box had only 2 wires (or 3 counting the ground) that connected to the old light fixture and it was controlled from a wall switch, the wiring would be fixture white to ceiling white, fixture black and fixture blue to ceiling black (or red) and fixture green to ceiling bare ground or connected to the metal box. This would power both the fan and light whenever the wall switch was on and the pull chains for each were also on. This is also the preferred wiring for replacement of a pull chain type light fixture (no wall switch present).

If there are other wires in the box that previously were not connected to the old light fixture, using a meter or tester - determine if there is constant power between the ceiling white wire and any of the these other wires (test with the wall switch on and off to be sure). If you do have constant power available, you might consider using the wall switch to control only the light, and using the pull chain to operate the fan (or vice-versa). Simply connect the black (for fan) or the blue (for light) to the "constant power on" wire and that part of the fixture will work by pull chain only - regardless of the wall switch position. If the fan can be shut off by the wall switch, it is very important that the wall switch remain a toggle (or on / off switch), do NOT replace with a dimmer type switch.

If you'd prefer to operate the fan and light completely independently of each other - you can purchase a 3rd party fan & light remote control device for between $30 - $50.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thanks!

How do you change the power cord on the Hoover u5475-900 Wind Tunnel 6200? Thanks for your help.


This procedure worked for replacing the cord on my Hoover U6425-900. At a minimum, you will need a number 2 Phillips screwdriver, wire cutter, and two electrical wire nuts and electrical tape. Remove the accessory tools from the storage compartment. Remove two screws, these are recessed. Remove the cover from the bag compartment, remove two screws located at top corners of bag compartment. You may have to open the side filter door but the accessory tool storage compartment should be free at this point and can be removed. You should see the power cord and related wiring. If you have a digital camera you could take a photo at this point in case you need a point of reference. Make note of the power cord strain relief routing and length of wire. Too much wire will make reattaching the storage compartment difficult and the routing prevents the cord from being pulled out.
On my model the wiring colors were purple, orange and white. My replacement cord had black and white wires. The orange wire will not be involved in cord replacement. Using the wire cutters clip the purple wire about three inches back from the existing terminal. If present, clip the two nylon wire ties and discard. The white wire will have a crimped on wire connector. Clip the white wire about three inches back from the existing wire connector. The old power cord can be removed by pulling it out from the rear, it should just slide out of the rubber insulating boot. If not use a set of pliers and crimp the boot from the wiring side and push it outside the vacuum housing. If you have to do this make sure you slip the boot over the replacement cord before you insert the new cord back into the vacuum housing. Remove about a half inch of insulation from the purple and white wires and from your replacement cord unless it was supplied with insulation already removed. Use new wire nuts and connect the white wires. Use the other wire nut and connect the purple wire to the remaining new power cord wire. Use some electrical tape and wrap the nuts to the wires a couple of times so they won't loosen. Make sure you route the power cord around the posts as this is the strain relief and prevents the cord from being pulled out. Reassemble and test.

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 i replace a pull cord with light switch


Ok so, L (line) N (Neutral) and E (Earth ground), and no idea what this rose is. I suppose you mean Junction Box when you say JB. You can use the original junction box for the wall switch connector, but the Black and white wires coming from the switch must be disconnected from power to be used, if power is already present in your light's original junction box (which is usually the case when using a pull switch light). Then you connect the white and black wires to your wall switch and use them to break the circuit at the light itself by wiring it between the light and the power lead.

Power comes from light to switch.want to wire in another switch (same box) to operate another separate light


OK .. for this to work, you would need to confirm that the power cable is also in this wall box. So in that wall box you need the existing power cable, the existing light cable, and a new light cable. All the cables being 2 wire with ground. Then just jumper the black power wire top the new switch, and connect the new light , black wire to the switch, the whites will all be together ..
If there is only one cable in this wall box , then the power is run to some other box and you need a neutral for the new light. That may mean rewiring the power tyop get it to the wall box, or rewing the new light to get power from it.
